    The 60k loan

    <Introduction - Good News Anyone ? A colleague of mine is helping a friend collate some information on our club&#8217;s season and asked me for input - I had to look at his request 3 times before I could think of anything positive. Our football club&#8217;s chairman of course is always positive...

    Ultimatum Time

    If I was Tilson I'd be demanding crisis talks with our beloved chairman first thing in the morning. We've got few assets left at this football club and the managerial partnership and the stability they bring are one of the last threads that haven't unravelled yet. RM needs to be reminded of...

    Question Questions for the consortium

    Thought we could gather some questions that would be useful to ask the consortium about their intentions. Not that they will get asked or answered, but just a gathering of thoughts/concerns etc. To start the ball rolling: If you are just buying the club for £1 with no assets, what are you...

    A Question(s)

    If the worst case happens could this be the last game we see the likes of McCormack Barrett Moussa Barnard playing for Southend? If they sell off our assets how quickly does it happen? Will it be effected by the fact we have such a small squad (wouldn't make sense to leave us with no players...
  20. 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.
