I'm not going to lie - I'm absolutely gutted about this and it's one hell of a signing for Southend.

Given the sideways element of the move, I'm sure he'll get some stick when he lines up against us in a navy blue shirt (he'll score of course).

He had the platform to continue developing well here with full-time football under a management team with a great track record - I can't help but feel he might have moved 12 months too soon and perhaps got himself a truly big move into the Football League next year.

My sentiments exactly.
I think he's been smooth talked into this by collymore myself but I too believe it would have been in his better long term interest to have moved on in twelve months to, possibly, a league club.

Given his injury record maaybe he is better off taking the money when itís available?  Real shame though. Iím still fearful colclough may leave, albeit for a fee, and then we are on the hunt for a couple of new wingers. I think it is essential we hang on to one of them so even more nervous now.

Losing one goalscoring winger is tough enough to take, but losing Colclough too would be hugely damaging; they're one hell of a duo and I think we'll appreciate that even more once they're gone.

Thankfully there seems to be a lot of wing options on the market, however we'd all obviously prefer to keep the players that are already embedded here.

He was very good for Alty but he certainly isnít irreplaceable. I would be more worried if we had lost Kossy or Ryan. Dan was a little too left foot reliable for me. Iím hoping Kyle Ferguson can be signed up.

He sounds positively euphoric...

Listening to his interview you would have thought he was dragged down to Southend. Cheer up ffs you got what you obviously wanted.

I think itís sad that he couldíve been a hero in anew era here rather than joining a club which isnít the most stable to say the least.

Heíll be a smaller fish in a bigger pond there. Itíll go the same way as Jordan Hulme this one.

Crikey, that interview was awful - body language was not the best. Maybe that's just the way Dan is.

Scored the goal at Boston that brought us back to the NL and after a quiet ( like the crowd !) last season , has been excellent and is a big loss and could be quite difficult to replace with someone of his class . It obviously looks like he's had his head turned by Collymoremoney but like the rest say the grass isn't always greener .

Seen it a million times in my day job (recruiter).

Gone for the money and a fresh challenge, push himself out of his comfort zone etc etc - but deep down he's wondered if he's done the right thing.

Time will tell.

It really doesn't matter why he went, he's gone because he didn't want to be at Alty enough.
Parky has already made it crystal clear that everyone who is in the squad next season will be there because they're totally committed.
However good he was for us he saw his future elsewhere probably on more money. I fully understand that and wish him well but it's interesting that Mullarkey, who potentially had a better offer but clearly respected the career advice he no doubt received from the manager, chose to stay.

Agree with this, once I feel a bit less sore about it then yes, we don't want people that don't want to be here. We clearly made him a good offer and he chose elsewhere.

Being fair to him, if Southend are giving the league a real go next season - and we know he's good at this level - then I'm sure he'll be a success there.

Just as a tangent to the Mooney transfer, I see that he's signed up for two years with an 'option in the club's favour'.
Would it be an idea for our signings to have this option in their contracts to prevent players leaving for nothing? The extra year could be triggered if someone was going to pounce and we could get a fee.
If someone wants to go badly enough we shouldn't stop them but not for nothing!
Just a thought.

Yeah I suspect we'd look at this - it's slightly safer than offering them two years and extending halfway through (as with Colclough)

Unfortunately this year is a real anomaly that couldn't be helped on our side, as we didn't really know what we could offer people until recently.
