We have to make some costly changes over the next 12 months as we have to change format and will no longer be with Vbulletin after so many years as they no longer offer security or help with us...They moved on to vB5 which does not...

    I know this is only a fantasy at present,but who knows what the future and a new 22000 seater stadium may bring.I myself would be happy just for Southend to make the championship and consolidate our position there,but from there one day maybe not in my life time we just might make it into the...

    Brexit: an apology

    During the referendum campaign I was guilty of talking down the benefits of Brexit down. In particular I was highly sceptical of the health advantages that this would bring despite this seemingly being a huge part of the Leave campaign (see picture of leading Government minister in front of a...

    Bet Fair challange

    I have recently entered a competition among a few mates where the challenge is turn an account containing only 20 pounds, into a 200 pound bank by the end of November. The rules are very simple you can either purely trade on price, or decide to wait on the out come, but you cannot invest on top...

    Outdoor smoking

    I've given up smoking so this doesn't apply to me, but it does seem as if something which is legal in this country (whether you like it or not) is going to get another hammering or the next few weeks. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-33883188 What I do find hypocritical is the amount of...

  9. The Freddy Fund?

    Just an idea to run over people and get opinions. I myself would love Freddy to sign for us again. I also understand that the club has to run by a budget. The last thing we all want is another scenario of a few years ago. As an idea how would people feel about donating to a signing on fee for...

    Question Clubs in financial difficulties

    I see the BBC are reporting that Exeter cannot afford to keep some their existing players. I wonder how many teams in the division are financially clinging on with their finger nails. Southend ............. errrhhh, enough said already. Accrington - putting a team together on a pittance of a...

    References, Wages and P45s

    Due to this poxy ressesion and a few other bits and bobs I have had to put the Motorcycle Recovery on hold and attempt to get out of this hellhole that is work. Now I have an interview coming up in the very near future and I am quietly convident of landing the post. Vastly better money, hours...
  13. Actions required ?

    Talking to people who seem to have a bit of knowledge on the subject it appears that 1) People have been using their season cards when they have stopped the payments at their banks. 2) People have been using child and student tickets when they have no right to do so. 3) Been given adult...

    Rangers hold the key to future Scottish European exploits

    Kaunas is a word that reminds Rangers of a bad time, a one time lacklustre performance in Europe against FBK Kaunas of Lithuania in the Second Qualifying round in the 2009/10 UEFA Cup season. Celtic also now have a word that instils disappointment and memories of what could've been. FC Utrecht...

  17. Simon Francis

    I have a feeling that Ron and the new manager are going to convince him to stay. I get the impression that of all the big earners he is the only one Ron is willing to keep. Think you will find that the same effort wasn't made to keep Barrett & Macca but then again can you blame him the way they...

    Question Anyone know their contract law?

    I'm very sceptical when I get told "inside information" as 90% of the time its not true. In this case I heard it from someone I know has connections with the club so I think it is worthy of posting here. It seems that several of the players agents may be seeking legal advice as they believe the...
