Am I the only one to wonder how on earth Hooper bid > what we need to bid for Mulgrew, and we're not paying up (yet) for Mulgrew?

Who's got the better attitude on the pitch? Who comes with less baggage off it? Who's a team player and who's a prima donna? Who's got the better technical skill? Who's played at Under-21 level for his country? Who flatters to deceive and thinks he's better than he is (or at least than we've seen), and who goes about his business quietly and efficiently? Who knows how to control the ball and who tries fancy tricks that don't come off? Who has time on the ball and who can't seem to get the ball under control? Who can't score an open goal and who takes a great 30 yard set-piece? Who's more likely to make it to the Premier League? IMHO, the comparative price is laughable - from what we've seen of them both while at Southend. Of course, how they develop from here is anyone's guess, but based on what we've all seen at Roots Hall so far...

We dont need the Hooper money for Mulgew- we've got a 'warchest' dont forget.

Someone remind me, looking at Furlong and Revell last night, why are we selling Gary Hooper when quite a few clubs are fighting over him for a decent price. Could you honestly see them doing the same for the 2 above and Hooper is young, can't work this one out!

Look, i'm not being negative unusual i know but the rest didn't have any problem at all and to blame a bit of drizzle is just ludicrous. Harrold, Paynter and Hooper are all better than him. I called Bailey far to early but this Revell i have seen at least 10 times and he is useless. And you can't keep on blaming the famous operation from last year!
