When does it open and what are the rules please chaps?

Who would you like to see come in?

Where do we need strengthening?

According to Travelling Blue, it seems we had a Reserve game yesterday afternoon v Daggers and had a couple of triallists playing (Anyone know who?) We won 3-0 with Paterson getting two. Prosser, Hall, Soares, Zaboub, Coughlan etc all played.

It's usually a week after the window shuts. Loans are a maximum of 93 days.

You mean our reserves actually won a game?

I don't think we need anyone to fill positions, more to improve on what we already have. A pacey forward would be my only addition.

Says on the rumours site that Kerrea Gilbert will join us on a free transfer shortly as he is unattached...

The same rumours site that used my thread, titled 'Complete untrue rumour' about Tilly returning and Sturrock not signing a contract, under the guise of 'My sourses at Southend tell me..''

Our priority must be to ship players out.

We have a centre-half and a centre-forward too many.

I wouldn't be surprised to see maybe Prosser/Phillips, Bouzid, Merrick James-Lewis and maybe Spencer go out on loan.

In a world of my own.
I would love us to go to one of the prem clubs and offer to take a decent young stiker for the season. I am sure someone with half a footballing brain could score for fun at this level.

Of course we can still sign players who are out of contract. The list is huge and quite depressing actually. So many talented players left on the scrap heap.

Here's a few realistic targets for us I feel (Maybe not everyone's cup of tea though) In my opinion we need another Centre Half, a creative Centre Mid and a Striker who can get 15-20 goals this season.

Tristan Plummer - Centre Mid
Sam Hewson - Centre Mid
Sean Thornton - Centre Mid (Yes I know, ******!)

Liam Rosenior - Centre Back/Right Back
Hasney Aljofree - Centre Back/Left Back

Febian Brandy - Striker
Danny Fernandez - Striker
Franny Jeffers - Striker
Leon Knight - Striker

There was a great article on the Beeb this week documenting the plight of players still unattached... Although the majority are unattached for a reason (usually attitude, Lee Hendrie), I was surprised to see Simon Whaley is still without a club. I remember him at Bury being a cracking little player with a bright future, which has subsequently been blighted by injuries.

If we didn't have a relative abundance on the wings, he'd be precisely the kind of player I'd like us to target.

I know old habits die hard, but why do we need a 6th centre-back again?
