As a few have been saying for several days now..... Rohan Ricketts will NOT be joining.

Thank **** we can now put this sorry saga to bed.

A couple of quotes from Tara Brady via Chris Phillips this morning...

"We won't be signing Rohan and not because of the finances. Paul does not see him fitting into the squad."

"We never made Rohan an offer."

As I put on twitter, I don't believe he's not signing because he doesn't fit into the squad. If that was the case then why waste time and money taking him to Scotland? I don't care if he signs or not, but if he doens't I do want to be told the real reason why. Or if the real reason in sensitive in any way then say so, but don't give me a very inplausible reason.

For him to bond and make a effort with the other players.... he the new boy he needs to make an effort!!

everytime I saw him in Scotland he was on his own.

Skysports have Ricketts claiming negotiations are ongoing.

Southend trialist Rohan Ricketts says he will only sign for the club providing he receives a fair offer.
The former Tottenham and Wolves winger, 28 has been on trial with the League Two side but will look elsewhere if terms cannot be agreed.

"The negotiations are still ongoing between the chief executive and my agent," Ricketts told BBC Essex.

"It's not about me wanting more than what they can give, it's about a fair offer.

"I'm really hoping we can agree a deal in the next 48 hours or I probably am going to have to speak to other clubs."

So who's telling the truth ?

Loughton - the only way is Orange!
Was he really good then ? I have to ask as it has had so much talk time on here you would have thought we really were signing Tevez ! Haven't seen the pre season games but happy with the players we have got to be honest. What's this Leonard lad like - He looks like he is coming to play for us rather than talking about gash in local press.
Who is this Ricketts anyway and where are all these clubs ready to sign him ?

This is the key point...it's a team game and irrespective of the RR's individual ability if he isn't team player and/or PS can see difficulties with him fitting in it's not in the team's interest to sign him. You've got to ask why, despite his talent, he's not continued at the higher level. There must be something former managers have seen (or not seen) that have resulted in him moving on. Shame really but the harsh reality is that it's not just about ability with the ball!

Good - there are probably reasons why he's gone from nearly making the full England squad 2 having trials with skint league 2 clubs (us) -one reason might be his football ability if the reports from Scotland are true. In Sturrock we trust

Chris Phillips says he definitely is NOT getting the number 18 shirt, and that's the TRUTH.


So I'd guess number 18
