I think with Holmes age and injuries have kicked in. In his first spell he could single handedly take the game by the scruff of the neck and change it…last season we were all willing him on but he wasn’t any where near the same as before. Southend have probably seen where he is performce wise and offered a contract to match that squad status. Farnborough rate him more for dropping down and he can probably offer his game changing ability at that level. Goalies and cb’s are only able to consistently replicate form professionally in to later years albeit for the occasional anomaly!

Good luck to the lad. Think he’ll do alright there.

Reinvest some, get a quality striker bought and let’s get promoted back.

What we need is a playmaker in central midfield, let’s see how much of yet another six figure transfer fee out of the club is spent on improving the current squad?
Credit where it is due KT is far more savvy in getting the best deal for himself compared to his predecessors.

If there is a bit of £ available from this money, Id like it spent on wages for some old war horse like McCormack who can come on and help us close out games...

For me, that 'role' is the only box not ticked in the current squad. I look at our bench (when we are 1-0 up) and there isn't that type of player to bring on. I know we won on Saturday, but when we were up against it it would have been ideal to have that type of player with the know how and the knowledge to come on and help out. Calm things down. Manage the game. Sounded a bit too frantic for my liking during the closing stages!

Caleb was always going to Villa for a fee that was aligned to a tribunal based on appearances .
The only surprising thing is that he hasn’t stayed here for the season on loan because that was the original intention.
It may open it up for someone else though . I wouldn’t hold your hopes up that the money will be spent on players having said that .

Pity we didn’t see his potential in a Cobblers shirt. If a Prem outfit are taking a punt he must have something, although we saw with Toney that he needed to drop to the depths of the P*sh to show his worth  Tongue
Be interesting to follow his progress and some more running costs covered for the season.
It’s another reminder that we are in a no win situation really. Anyone who shines moves on for modest fees or go back to their club.
It’s another reason why the stability that the likes of Sammo, Hoskins, Hargreaves, Buchs and co is often under appreciated.

So as stated, that would make him 5/6 choice?

Not sure the point on repeating what I said but questioning it at the same time, attention maybe?

Anyone else pick up on the digs that JB aimed at Chuks and his agent, and KTs towards previous owners caving in to low deals?
