Hall had scored winners against Oxford twice already this season and he set the Shrimpers on their way when his 19th-minute free-kick hit the net for his 14th goal of the campaign.

Mohsni then got the crucial second with a well-placed header from Peter Gilbert's cross, ensuring Southend could yet claim third place in npower League Two on the final day of the season this weekend.

Boss Sturrock said: "Ryan's a quality player. I've been pleased with him, with his work-rate as well.

"Mohsni's unbelievable in the air. He's the best centre-half I've ever signed."

He added: "It's been a scary season, but it's fantastic that it's going to the last game of the season. Two teams have to lose and draw next week and we have to win. Momentum-wise, we're going in the right direction for the play-offs."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
