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?

Yep, it's all a cover up and the whole world is out to get you. It couldn't possibly be that they hadn't seen enough of him to make that judgement before the trip.

Rohan Ricketts not coming

Is anyone else pleased, like me that Ricketts is not coming to Roots Hall?
Yes it was exciting to have a player on trial scoring a hat trick but he was never fit according to reports.
He seems keener to keep media sources happy than get down to fitness to play at this level.
Good luck to him elsewhere but I think we are better off without him.:smile:

Don't you mean Michael Ricketts? I think he would be a fantastic signing!

Agree. RR has gone quiet on Twitter. Maybe he's realised that silence is sometimes far more powerful than sharing your train of thought every 1/2 hour...I'll shut-up now!

"Unfortunately a deal has not been struck with Southend and I have had to entertain other opportunities. First of them has been Stevenage FC!"

Shame we couldn't get him, think he would've fitted in and done a decent job but clearly Sturrock felt otherwise, all the best to him, don't begrudge him anything.

With average crowds significantly lower than ours, any idea how Stevenage can offer him better wages?. Bearing in mind clubs have a wage budget linked in to turnover.(Presuming of course money was the issue).
