Barnard scored 37 league goals in 75 games for the Shrimpers before moving to St Mary's, where he has been out of favour since the Saints' promotion to the Barclays Premier League.

Southend boss Phil Brown told the club's official website: "It's great news that we've managed to bring Lee to the football club, I'm sure he can make a good impression.

"He obviously did very well for the club when he was here originally, and hopefully he can have more success in front of goal as he did then.

"Lee hasn't played much first-team football so far this season but did well during two loan spells in League 1 last season.

"We've got some very important games coming up and I felt it was key that we added another striker to our ranks."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
