Fully committed?

Fully committed?

At the moment Ryan Hall, having seen a move to Blackpool fall through, is training on his own away from the first-team at Southend.

The wingers move to Blackpool stalled over personal terms couldn't be agreed and he feels is being forced out, as he told The Echo, with it not "his decision" to be unavailable for The Shrimpers: 'I spoke to Ron about the situation and he said too much had gone on for me to come back to Southend. He told me I had no future at the football club and I think, to be honest, the club want me to go because they need the money.

'Even now the chairman keeps mentioning Blackpool to me because they're willing to pay £250,000, but I've told him I'm not going there because we can't agree personal terms. I never had the chance to come back to Southend after everything fell through and it certainly wasn't my decision that I didn't go back.'

Paul Sturrock, as he told the official website, followed this up by saying he only wanted "committed players" playing for him and he doesn't feel this is the case with the 24-year-old.

With Hall having, according to Sturrock, made it "very clear" to him that he wanted to leave that said it all for him: 'I only want committed football players at this football club. Ryan has made it very clear to me that he isn't committed so that is why I don't want him to be here.

'He's made it very clear that he wishes to leave so do I really want players around the place that will go through the motions counting down the days until they can move?'

This is such a bad position for people to be left in and is one of the major problems with the modern game, especially the way the transfer system works these days...
