    What if the Hokey Cokey is what it's all about?

    Got something against Chalkwell?
    "The British government is free to make a decision about its participation in the World Cup," he said.

    But nobody has the right to insult the Russian people - who defeated Nazism and lost more than 25 million people - by comparing our country to Nazi Germany.

    That goes beyond common sense."

    All in good time Barna, pillage and plunder have to be done in small doses, that way you can extract all the wealth in one visit.

    According to today's Lincolnshire Echo, we are set to sign Scunthorpe striker Tom Hopper. The Imps had been wanting to bring him to Sincil Bank, but he wants to continue in League one.
    Incidentally, it also mentions that Salford City are trying to sign Bristol Rovers striker Rory Gafney and have offered him £3k a week! It makes you realise what we are up against when looking to secure new signings.

    Wasn't Hopper one of the Leicester film stars ?

    Good to see other local papers giving better transfer news than ours

    Yes.

    Ron's gone quite quiet on the subject of due diligence that he use to like to bang on about in his blog, but if this was an isolated incidence three years ago when he was still a kid (21)) and he's kept his nose clean since then this is clearly quite different to the signings of Ranger and Inniss.

    Great to have a morsel to run with. Tom Hooper would be a good signing.
    With chips in his pocket. Just waiting for the chance to get into the game.

    If we were to sign Hopper and manage to get Cox to sign a new deal, do you think we will stop there in regards to strikers? I still think we need a target man, but does CP think the same?

    What sort of player is he? Can’t say I know much about him as a footballer.

    He's a free agent so Scunthorpe won't have much say in it and I don't think Southend would comment until it was finalised. However he was identified as a target a couple of weeks ago.

    He's probably told Lincoln that he's flattered by the interest but when a club of Southend's stature comes calling you don't say no.

    He's a hard-working forward, left footed, decent size without being big. Hasn't been overly prolific to date but is approaching his prime after three solid seasons in League One with Scunthorpe and perhaps in the right system is a candidate for a breakout goalscoring year. He scored on his last appearance at Roots Hall.
