Quite agree Duke. Southend have struggled for a few years now financially off the pitch, and also on the pitch, as their relegations saw them slip into the NL, where, like many former EFL teams, they are struggling to acclimatise to non league football. I doubt they can afford a fair transfer fee for him either, and surely the Darts deserve a transfer fee for him. Far far better for Noor to stay with the Darts and enjoy his football with the possibility of playing at the same level next year.

No chance at promotion if we lose Noor.

Before 2 weeks ago I would agree with that, however we look as though we have started to turn a corner with regards to the club infrastructure, we have just signed Harry Cardwell for an undisclosed fee.

Not saying that, but a player like Noor will be extremely hard to replace especially halfway through the season. He's one of the best midfelders at this level.

For purely selfish reasons I hope that the rumours about Noor moving to Southend are unfounded but if they are true I would hope (and expect) that he has a contract with Dartford and should he leave a (decent) transfer fee will be paid which can be used to strengthen our squad. He is good enough to play at a higher level (albeit only one division in this case) and I wouldn't begrudge him the chance to be a full time player again.

Maybe Noor needs a new agent, the guy is absolute class and without any doubt has the quality to play in the Football league, personally having watched games at Gillingham and Charlton recently he could play for a ball playing league one team comfortably.

I think he, and his agent, should be aiming for a Championship level team and his agent (if he has one) needs to get him a better deal than National league level.

In my opinion he is one of the best players we have had at the club since we have reformed in terms of ability.

Undercover, I also follow Tranmere Rovers as I moved away from Dartford. They spent 3 years trying to get back from relegation from EFL to the National League between 2015 to 2018 and didn't have the financial problems that Southend have had. They also had a reasonable structure in place too which has improved further since. But it's been a hard journey back to our current 2nd place in Division 2.

Since then, the National League has become even stronger, so it ain't going yo be easy for Southend. Just ask Chesterfield, Notts County, Wrexham and Torquay for starters!!

That's why by choice we would like to keep Noor for our own push into the National League, if that is where is does go with Southend.
