The back page of the Echo today has an article on PB having two days of talks with Anton in a bid to keep him at Southend. It seems PB knows there are other clubs monitoring the situation as Anton would be available on a free. Ferdinand is seen as an important player by the club and his signature would lead to others signing new contracts too, Thompson being specifically mentioned.

So is he pivotal to our squad? After his performances this year, and with proper pre-season nurturing, I would say yes he is, especially if he is as influential as Phil believes he may be. Dig deep Ron, make Anton feel loved.
