Putting the band back together. Who next, Kevin Maher? Peter Clarke? Adam Barrett?

Exactly.

The club haven't mentioned it yet.

But I was told by a very reliable source, that we've got Justin Lee Collins in as our Director of Football, and he is looking to get the old gang back together again.

It must be true because I have seen Gower putting a bag of dog poo through Fatso's letter-box.

Why else would he be in Southend ?

We have Leonard, Timlin, Laird, Clifford, Atkinson, Gomis and Payne fighting to occupy 3 central midfield positions. I would put him behind most of those in the pecking order unfortunately.

We only need one new signing at centre back, as Phillips has looked a bit of a weak link at times. Maybe also a pacey young winger to provide a bit of cover for Hurst.

Gower would still get into this team, as good as the other players are. In a three man midfield he wouldn't even need to run. It would be his dream.

But even if there isn't a logical 'need' for the signing if he's free then I'm sure we're interested. This would be a classic Ron Martin signing.

Maybe it's with a view to moving onto the coaching team?

reliable source


Id suggest you re-adjust your reliable source to unreliable status.

Just spoke to Mark Gower. Said no one has spoken to him about coming back to Blues. @SUFCRootsHall @Essex_Echo"

Cant see him replacing any of the 3 we have at moment nor even keeping Laird out. The team has so much energy at the moment I cant see how he would get in, although on the flip side with that energy he could be 'carried' as you say.

Agree it would be a Ron Martin sigining and for nostalgic reason but just dont see he would get in the team.

Happy CP has put this to sleep, would have been a pointless signing to be honest, we have plenty of midfielders,if it s cover we looking for then centre back and if Paul Smith is going ,goalkeeper.Otherwise we looking pretty solid in my opinion.Would only sign others if it really was a very talented player .
