Alos Arsenal & Wolverhampton Wanderers! After another comprehensive victory for Southend United at Great Wakering Rovers all the latest utterings from the twittersphere! Rohan Ricketts: A promising first game as a Shrimper on trail!   After the 5-0 win at Isthmian League Division One North side Great Wakering Rovers a few words caught from the Twittersphere   From striker Barry Corr:     'Any Sufc fans at the game? I liked Darren Currie, you can see his quality, would like him to sign as his delivery would be great 4 me.'   And after a few words from the faithful that Currie might be a little long in the tooth at 36: '   'Funny how football opinions differ, a lot not havin Currie. I thought best player on pitch, would work great with Sean & would get me more goals.'   I don't know, only thinking about one's self, then again at least there's no love-in with Jedi Blair again after Baz had a go about his car, for now!   From centre-back Mark Phillips:   'Another good performance from the boys and another wonder goal from the right'   From Echo Journalist Chris Phillips:    '(Ricketts) Is hungry to play and said he wouldn't be here on trial if he wasn't keen to sign.'   'Sturrock said he would speak to Ricketts' agent and see what figures were mentioned. Said he got train down from Coventry just to play.'   'Also spoke to Ryan Leonard. He's desperate to join. Sturrock signed him before for Plymouth youth team and says he remains a fan of his.'   And, hold your breath; 'Now for the bad news. Big injury blow for Blues'   But who? Don't worry, we're find out before you have to buy the Echo, and it's not Bomber Harris or Ryan Hall, they didn't play!   However, let's hear from Luggy himself, who told “I was impressed by Rohan and will now be talking to his agent and seeing what figures are mentioned. Rohan wants to play football and has shown his commitment by coming down on the train from Coventry to play in a trialist game and then again tonight. He isn't at full match sharpness yet so there is more to come but he's hungry to play and he did very well tonight.”   Eight goals in 48 hours and none against; yes, we all appreciate the opposition, but it's a lot better than this time last year!   Let's return to Big Baz to wish us good night:   'Sorry can't reply to every1, lots of views on 2nite, 1 common 1, it's gonna be a good season. Let's get Sufc up to league 1. Night all.'   Coming soon: Shrimpers in Scotland!   Wiki link Rohan Ricketts:   Shrimpers Pre-Season Schedule Monday, July 11th - Dartford 0 Southend United 3 Tuesday, July 12th - Great Wakering Rovers 0 Southend United 5 Saturday, July 16th - Dundee (at East Fife), 15.15.
