    Things You've Broken at Home and Got Away With

    Years ago, when I was still at school I had an 18th birthday party in my parents' house. My parents were very sensible and booked into a hotel for the night. That was partly to do with noise, and partly to do with the fact that about 20-30 people stayed over because they had travelled long...

    The Squad of 1989-90

    Three weeks ago, The Football League Paper featured our 4th Division promotion-winning squad of 1989-90 in their Where Are They Now? feature. The article was based on Bernie Friend's book Red Card Roy, with quotes from the book from Roy, and then the article went on to report where all the...

    Question Accounts and the Umbongo - Update!

    So I was thinking last night about the reason that the embargo was in place was that the Accountants would not release the completed Financial Statements until they had received payments (and rightly so, they aren't a charity and they provided a service). Now this got me worried again as it...

    Embargo Talk .. Are We / Aren't We ???

    It is a fact that we are under one hence all the bollocks that we are looking at this player looking at that one, one thing that ****es me of about our club is how they try to hide the facts under the radar. It's simple here, the accountants are apparently waiting to be paid and until they are...

    Zone Update The Secret of our Success

    Well it's fairly simple really, it is YOU! It is however worth explaining to all where we are now. In the past 2 years we have nearly trebled the amount of members that use the Zone and this has now caused us to face up to the fact our server space is to small.....Recent issues with crashes...

    Perma-Tanned Wally

    The sacking of a manager is usually a euphoric release for a struggling club’s fan base, but the only people who seem to be pleased about yesterday’s cruel dismissal of Phil Brown are Arsenal supporters. Still miffed about Brown’s involvement in ‘SpitGate’, they’re delighted to see the back of...

    Swallowed up-The Observer

    Previous Blog home Debt mountains tower over clubs but football's rulers turn a blind eyeThe Game That Ate Itself. That was the title of Observer Sport's 2004 campaign about English football. So where are we now? Debt is football's issue of the moment, propelled into prominence by the...

  13. Companies Act 2006-Directors Responsibilities

    As more and more information seeps out about the Blues parlous financial condition, the thought had crossed my mind that some consideration should be given to the role of the SUFC Board in matters reaching the state they have. Until very recently, I was Chairman of a small transport company in...

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie

    From Mark Steyn writing on NRO: According to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, we only have 96 months left to save the planet. I’m impressed. 96 months. Not 95. Not 97. July 2017. Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    Giggs' Award Is Worth Sweet PFA

    I despair at the PFA Awards, I really do. If it's not bad enough that they demand that all the votes are counted months before the end of the season, they go and let the footballers decide who wins. Everyone knows that's asking for trouble. Most footballers hate watching football, as much as...

    Ron Martin's Blog

    Chairman’s Blog 27.01.09 - From Inside Your Club When I started looking at investing in SUFC and held early meetings with Vic Jobson it soon became clear (the opposite actually!) that the operation was surrounded in mystique. I will not speak ill of the dead but I think the Chairman at that...

    Annual Accounts

    Received mine in the post this morning. I'm no expert on these things, but they look reasonably healthy to me. Any chartered accountants out there care to give us a more informed opinion?
