    Anyone know how he's been getting on at Southend?

    Interested to know considering he was looking to be our 2nd choice Cb before season started

      Think he has been in and out of the team and used mostly as a back up, just seen that he has been subbed on due to an injury.

      Says he's enjoying his time there and learning from the experience.
      Certainly getting plenty of rest

      He's made 4 starts in league and cup for League One Southend, and has another 7 appearances from the bench. I'm not quite sure what you guys were expecting from someone who hadn't made a senior appearance prior to his two outings for Albion in the COC this season?

      Which is why you are my favourite poster on NSC. Accurate and up to date Albion facts, unadorned, and succinctly put. Use that as your next strapline

      I love AZ's posts. So many ITK dicks on here, but he just posts FACT.

      Most of his sub appearances look to have been very late on.
      I'm not actually expecting too much. I think he is too lightweight just yet to play centre back in a very physical division and ultimately I think he may be destined to join our very productive list of defenders converted to midfield.
      He seems to be responding well to his situation and on that basis it's better than staying here in the u-21's. If he was less positive or less mentally resilient it might be different as with Walton and his very convenient injury at Bury.
      Whether extending Rea's loan beyond January will be beneficial might depend on whether he starts to get more game time.
      Meanwhile he's getting plenty of rest

      The same applies to Harper and Hambo who some people expect to be in the first team soon.

      Dont kid yourself, BHA themselves would have hoped for a run of consecutive games throughout his loan spell, this would have been discussed prior to him going, but the recipient club would of reserved the right to decide to play him or not.

      Of course it doesnt always happen, as with Walton, but they our not put out on loan to learn how to live with rejection and end up just training with them, as always with football you will hear the usual sound bites of 'yeah I enjoyed it' 'I learnt alot' and 'they were a great set of lads', but you can be assured it will be a little disappointing for Rea and for BHA.
