It's the local Southend journalist, who initially started the link between us and McLaughlin, so yes.

Good news that, Southend fans seem gutted he’s going, how long does it take a footballer to get up to scratch fitness wise these days? 2 week?

I normally take that logic on board, but Southend fans also rated Will Atkinson & Kevan Hurst who both left Southend to join us so I’ve lost a bit of faith in their opinion :lol: let’s hope McLaughlin is better than them! Coughlan clearly pursued him for a long time when there will be plenty of other options out there so he must really rate him.

I thought Will Atkinson was a decent footballer but probably in the minority to be fair. Better than what we had last season. He could put his foot on the ball and actually pass and move, seemed to have time on the ball but was unspectacular. Would fit in great with Clarke or anyone who could get forward a bit more.

GC seems very keen on signing a 30 year old left footed midfield player whose best seasons seem to be 3 or 4 years ago. He does not look very quick on the videos but can play on the right or left and likes a shot. He also likes a yellow card so will fit in with James Perch. He was Southend's 2nd highest rated player last season on Who Scored of players who played regularly with four assists. His defensive abilities are also rated as very strong.

Key passes, strong. Passing, weak. He just needs to make every pass A key pass. Easy.

Sounds like he'll be an asset, but excuse me.if I reserve judgement until I see him play.


It's a shame he didn't sign when we first had interest. Clearly he.was holding out for something better, and so missed all of pre-season.

He’s known for putting in the hard graft, and we desperately need a left sided player.

It’s a obvious welcomed addition.

Yes spot on. It’s annoyed me that he’s taken this long to decide. It’s as if he didn’t get any better offers and thought the season starts on Saturday I’d better sign now. He should’ve been here months ago if he really wanted to come because now we’ll have to play a League game with a different player.

Southend fan on McLaughlin: "Very good left winger and great left foot who chips in with a few goals too. Always works hard for team. Coughlan will know him very well. Gutted to have lost him."

How do we know we didn't have space in our budget to sign him, and now we have since Tomlinson has gone? It's not always as cut and dried as a player 'waiting for something better'.

I think is the most likely, as well as the prior form of Benning thus far.

I agree about Atkinson being a decent footballer,always thought he should have got more credit as at least he put a shift in.

He was incredibly average in my opinion. He may have run about a fair bit but can’t ever remember him having a great performance or grabbing the game by the scruff of the neck. Opinions ay!

I think we still need 1 more cm and that would be ideal, even if it’s a young lad on loan. We probably won’t get him though as the manager seems to rate smith (not sure why)
