Bailey Left in Limbo!

Bailey Left in Limbo!

An ex-promising youngster of ours, linked to a return to Fulham had something of a shock coming his way.

After being linked with, amongst others, Fulham, Hull, Charlton, Crystal Palace and QPR, Bailey chose t reject a new contract offer from Southend. Sadly, it seems to have upset the Essex club who promptly placed him on the transfer list, prompting Bailey to tell Sky Sports,

'It is a bit of a shock, I saw what was said and it did shock me.'

'But I suppose that is football, things happen and you have to get on with it."

'I know some people will look at the situation and think I have engineered this, but I have never given less than 110 per cent for Southend since I arrived and as I have said I am shocked as to what has happened."

'I don't think anyone at the club or the fans would be able to pick fault with my attitude or performances following my arrival."

'When I joined the club I was told I need to 'prove myself' and I think I did that by finishing top-scorer and being Player of the Year.'


However, the suggestion is that Bailey had his eyes focussed on a return the big time after learning scouts from a plethora of clubs were tracking him.

His reply,

'When I was younger I was at Fulham and got a little taste before I was released, but that has made me hungry."

'To play at the highest level is a huge incentive for me, I am still quite young and think I can do that."

'Rejecting the contract was about ambition, not about money or anything like that and I have never asked to leave the club."

'I was asked to prove myself and I did, and that has obviously impressed others."

'But as I said I am still shocked as to what has happened and we will see what happens.'


Would we like to see him back at the Cottage?

He looked a good player in league One. Did have a very nasty streak and picked up a few unneccessary bookings.
