    Who will be Skipper next season?

    This season we have had Anton Ferdinand, Ben Coker and John White all wearing the Captains's arm band. Who do you reckon will lead the side out next season? I'm betting JW, but this assumes his contract is renewed. Any thoughts?

  7. Ben Coker

    Nice article on Ben on page 28 of today's Metro which highlights his positive attitude to dealing with the injections required to deal with his diabetes (4 a day) well as the rejections he has had in football.

    Latest Rumours Stephen Hendrie to sign 2 year deal on Monday

    878373207438479366 Reliable source and undoubtedly a great signing if true, but what does this mean for Coker's future?

    Nile Ranger on Instagram

    Well worth a follow. His story yesterday was all the player at Cox's house for Cox's birthday celebrations. I think Coker's fit to play Sunday, considering he was on the bouncy castle. And Wordy's son is a big fan of Nile Ranger. Good to see a real team spirit from all the players there.

    Smith, Inniss, Oxley out for the season, Coker out for 2 weeks

    Just seen tweet from CP saying that Coker and Smith likely to miss rest of the season. Smith - shame as he was doing ok, but this new lad looks the real deal, so are we able to extend his emergency loan to the end of the season? Coker - massive miss, thought Timlin played very well Tuesday...

    Breaking News King returns to Swansea

    Says Chris Phillips. No great shock, may allow Jack Bridge some game time. Wonder if Brown is looking for another midfielder for cover on loan or not, if Coker is fit then we'll have Timlin as an option there as well as Atkinson being able to move central.

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Swindon Town

    After yesterday, I can't wait until Tuesday night. I'm guessing Coker is going to be unfit, so the headache could be whether to play Kyprianou or stick with Tims, who did a decent job there yesterday against a good side who like to get it wide. Lord knows what to expect from Swindon. They lost...
