    I had high hopes for him, but has not progressed as I hoped he would.

    If he does as well as Mandron I'll be surprised.

    Good move for everyone. You never know, it might just make him step up

    I do wonder how many of these kids (although he's not that young anymore) are now more in love with the idea of being a 'footballer' than actually playing football.

    hope he earns himself a move, not going to kick on while here, too many chances been spurned or just not good enough...shame as i think he can be a lot better than he shows but is not as good as he seems to think he is.

    bang on, I found out last week that he'd been dating my niece before he went to Southend, so maybe I'll get a bit more info now he's back up here, I don't think he'll be around SAFC for too much longer.

    He's only played 2 games for Southend with 0 goals.
    We should start calling him Benji KimpiPlonka...

    Any idea why he's returned, or are you just making assumptions that's he's been **** on the pitch with a **** attitude?

    Having seen what's going on at Southend I'd not want any of our players there if we want them to receive decent coaching and opportunities to develop and improve.

    He was loaned out to Torquay aswell last season where he played 10 games with 0 goals.
    He needs sending back to Sweden.
