    Cup success and the price we are paying for it

    When Paul Sturrock has the time to reflect of this season, will he be ironically regretting the fact that his luck in Cup Competitions changed? It seems to be the fashion at the moment on here to furnish reasons for our expected failure again in gaining promotion from the basement...

    Would have been brilliant if the club could have put a promo in for the Torquay game at least for reduced ticket prices? Similar to what we done last season against Morecambe? The importance of these three games is evident, would have been nice to really pack out the hall:sad:

    "You don't win anything with Kids"

    A re-signing which could bring back a bit of bounce to the squad?

    http://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/article/010213-look-whos-back-632465.aspx With all the concentration on the Transfer deadline, this important bit of info may have gone un-noticed? I suppose this could stiffen up the lads resolve a bit! :smile:
