Minus wages, bonuses and various fees adds up to the square root of sod all so far... So you'll excuse me if I don't lose any sleep... More importantly (since this was never about selling him in to make a quick buck), we've done alright without him.

3 games for 2m would have been handy.

Along with the disruption to the team and so on. We wouldn't have anyone wanting him without playing him, and if we were playing him we wouldn't want to sell him. And we didn't need him to play him cause our current centre halves are doing pretty well.....

I'm inclined to think that much of Shrewsbury's success this year has been due to Abu Ogogo,their decline in form coincides with his absence through suspension (albeit for fighting) and a ligament injury. They're just not the same team without him.

He's a product of Arsenal's academy and he's out of contract this summer and, according to posts on Shrewsbury forums, there's doubt on his willingness to sign another.

We could do a lot worse than take a gamble on him to bolster our midfield.

I always think it not a good idea to sign players from lower leagues. Indeed a lot of Rovers players have stood out in league one but a lot of them have failed previously in the championship. Rovers squad will need bolstering during the summer. Rovers have done reasonably well with signings made from promoted championship clubs to the premiership. We got Tom Cairney and Corry Evans from Hull and Craig Conway from Cardiff when they deemed surplus to requirement after promotion. Maybe Rovers could look at who Wolves and Cardiff are offloading. Ben Marshall will be available no doubt from Wolves and we are getting Liam Feeney back from Cardiff...maybe Ogogo will be a better option aftet all ;)
