Chris Powell's transfer business - a retrospective

Freddie Ladapo - Powell could pick a forward. Didn't work out at Roots Hall but after scoring 19 in a season for Plymouth he joined Rotherham for a club record transfer fee and is currently a first team regular in the Championship

Sam Barratt - another what if, after injury wrecked his Southend stay. 9 goals in 11 starts for Maidenhead in the Conference for the midfielder. If he keeps that form up I suspect a league club will pay good money for him.

Harry Lennon - another one blighted by injuries. His first game back was our first point of the season, his last game was our first win of the season.

Isaac Hutchinson - the youngster signed on a free and sold to Championship Derby for an undisclosed fee made his Rams debut yesterday

Tim Dieng - man of the match yesterday, captain under Campbell and seems to have done a Maher and turned around his Southend career and our season around and is now a key figure at the club.

Sam Mantom - like Dieng struggled in the chaos, would he have turned his Roots Hall career around under Molesley as well?

Tom Hopper - signed on a free, did his ACL after scoring 7 in 14 and superbly leading the line. Sold to Lincoln for what is believed to be a six figure sum. Lincoln are 4 points clear at the top of L1!

Luke Hyam - injury meant he barely played.

Stephen Humprhys - 10 goals in 22 starts for Southend -he was yet another hit by injuries. Sold for an undisclosed fee to Rochdale for whom he has 3 in 8.

Shayon Harrison - apparently he now plays for Almere City. Yeah, me neither.
Taylor Moore - still with his parent club Bristol City, but not quite good enough to nail down a position in the Championship
Shawn McCoulsky - the much hyped signing is now at Forest Green, for whom he has failed to score.
David Stockdale - I'd completely forgotten about him. The experienced keeper is now back up at Wycombe in the Championship
Harry Bunn - after a spell at Kilmarnock didn't work he ended up at York in the Conference North.
Sam Hart - returned to be a big part of our turn around

More players are now in the Championship (4) than with us (3)!

Of his 9 permanent signings a third were sold for a profit, which is pretty decent. Five of the nine's stay was blighted by serious injury, which seems absurdly high.
