if we had the 250k for barnard we would have bought him tho i think he will prefer top dog leeds if beckford goes. as he is likely to be staying at leeds , then southampton seem to be best placed. before we brought in oli j i though that we were in the running. we have the best attack in the league and good back up , as has been stated. the hunt for a forster type keeper would be my priority over the coming months. would you leave southend to sit on a bench and watch holt get 30 goals this season?
