Most importantly, however, Higgs answered a question where he confirmed that an offer had been made to John-Joe O'Toole to bring him to the club on a permanent basis. He still has a year left to run on his current Colchester United contract but it is thought that they will release him in the summer. Whether that is entirely true or not remains to be seen because the other suggestion is that Colchester will release him to us if we agree to start paying his wages as soon as he signs. Higgs wouldn't be drawn one way or the other in regards to how confident he was that a deal would happen but he set out that a deadline had been given to JJ to accept the offer. The tough-tackling central midfielder made no secret of his desire to play at as high a level as possible but he enjoyed being part of this football club and hopefully the lure of potential success next season will persuade him to join.

Among other things, this was the bulk of the Q+A session. I'm pleased to hear the club are being proactive this year in achieving the squad (and stadium) that we all dream of. We need a bit of luck along the way but those who try and make things happen are often rewarded. Let's hope that's the case this summer.
