    Last time we paid a transfer fee for someone over 25

    I can just about remember the last time we paid a transfer fee (I think Bolger, Layne and Straker were the last 3) but the last time we paid a transfer fee for someone over 25? Would that be Andy Sussex? Surely there must have been someone since then! (Let's ignore any nominal fees) Ron was...

    Myles Weston makes debut for Antigua

    Made his debut for Antigua & Barbuda last night against Haiti in Montego Bay, Jamaica. He scored in the 58th minute of their 2-2 draw in the Carribean Cup.

    Official Match Thread Southend United v Burton

    Feel a bit guilty openeing the thread as I'll be watching and not contributing very much. One change from Sunday with Straker in to replace Murphy. Not totally against the idea ........give him thirty mins and see whether it's one of Strakes inspired days. If it's not change him with Murphy.

    Straker, Payne

    Does it strike anyone else strange that we're offering contracts to players without knowing which league we're playing in? Especially when it's 2 players who aren't totally comfortable at this level, never mind a league higher.
