Dobra Not Joining Crawley on Loan
Thursday, 15th Oct 2020 15:13
Blues forward Armando Dobra will not be joining League Two Crawley Town on loan, TWTD understands.
The Red Devils’ interest in the 19-year-old emerged at the weekend and talks have been ongoing over recent days but with the proposed move now not set to happen.
We understand Mansfield Town are also keen on signing the Albania U21 international on loan, while other League Two clubs have shown interest and could make an approach before Friday’s 5pm deadline but it appears likely he will remain at Portman Road to fight for a place in the team between now and January.
Scottish League One side Falkirk were also among Dobra’s suitors but that potential switch has also been ruled out.
Town boss Paul Lambert is keen to get youngsters such as Dobra, Brett McGavin, Corrie Ndaba and Ben Folami, who was linked with A-League side Melbourne Victory yesterday, out on loan to gain first-team experience.
Dobra, who is contracted to the Blues until the summer of 2023 with an option for a further season, has made three senior starts and four sub appearances for Town.
The London-born forward has scored two first-team goals, most recently the edge-of-the-box strike which opened the scoring in last Tuesday’s 2-0 home victory over Gillingham in the EFL Trophy.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
