  1. Finances of Sacking PB & Co

    I know PB contract was due to expire in the Summer, however I am not totally sure of the other 3 who were dismissed. Anyone know in more detailed the likely financial implications of these, also added to any to attract/employ new ones...

    Too much football over Christmas?

    There's been a lot of talk over the last week about the festive fixture schedule and whether we play too much football in this country, with managers complaining, particularly those from the top Premier League clubs (who ironically have the biggest squads). I do have some sympathy with them...

    What do we get after Thursday?

    I have absolutely no idea what the outcome of Thursday's election results will be, apart from whoever gets in, they will not meet the needs of the majority of voters in this country. I've always been a lifelong Labour voter but I'm really struggling to bond this time round and the rest of the...
  7. Agm

    Came across a summary of the 2009 AGM (which was possibly the last one we had ?!? :whistling: ). Points that interested me were ; Ron still keen to get the work started on site at FF in November Total spend on FF down to £35m (materials/labour now cheaper) Ron not happy with Echo, and Chris...
  8. Question what do you think?

    When it comes to loanees, we have had some really decent loanees this season, to be honest i cant think of one we had this season i would call bad.My question is , when we apply to a club to loan a player ,do you think they look at the club and the manager etc ,before deciding whether to oan...

    Ron Martin, Please Get us out of This Embargo

    Firstly let me say that I am really excited about the position we now find ourselves in. We are third in the table with a chance of going top on Saturday, and are playing football that I enjoy watching. But, my issue is that, at the moment, we’re getting away with it. We have had a number of...
  10. What would you put in Saturday's program to attract more fans back??

    So as the title says really. Saturday will see our biggest crowd, and biggest selling program, a good opportunity to put accross a positive message to the fair weather fans.. The real winner will be a great performance on the pitch, but also I would like to see a comprehensive updates from Ron...

    What do you feel is sufc's future?

    I have been thinking about the club this week and all the things that used to attract me to it and it really saddens me to see the club being run so poorly and for the fans to be so disillusioned and distanced from the club they love. I just think the club is quite literally on its knees and it...
  12. Ref Watch ........ Newport A

    As we go to a city we haven't lost in for 31 years, the man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He has been fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his third season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first...
  13. Ref Watch ......... Yeovil

    The man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He has been fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his third season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first 11 matches, then calmed down a lot but then went a...

    Town centre could lose up to 35 million a year from Fossetts Farm

    http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/10350435.Blues_stadium_could_lose_town_centre_traders___35million_a_year/?action=success Really? 35 million? There are shops that I go to on retail parks that I would never dream of going to in the high street, eg Homebase/Currys etc. I personally think there...

    Crowd for Saturday

    30,000+ fans at Wembley last week and only the new manager's second home game. Will the appointment of our new manager with his glowing (orange) premiership reputation enthuse the fanbase to build upon this achievement or will crowds drop because of the awful performances dished up under his...

    Who should we be looking to sign in the summer?

    Obviously apart from Ronaldo, Messi, Joe Hart & Pique, what type of players should we be looking to bring in come the summer? Personally I think we need another centre back to play with Cresswell, a holding midfielder in the Grant mould to tidy up, a creative winger to fill the Ryan Hall shaped...
  17. Question What if!!

    question: what if STURROCK at seasons end decides to leave, would it be conceivable for Southend to hire a Player Manager , being that player is a high profile player as Davids is at Barnet.Such player would not only attract a better class of footballer to SUFC but also some much needed exposure...
  18. Feedback on an article

    Not sure where this should go - thought that seeing as it's Southend-related, I'd put it here. I'm looking towards a career in football journalism and wrote an article for the latest issue of All At Sea, which I'm sure some of you will have read. Obviously I'm always looking for ways to improve...

    The Promenade Shopping Park (aka Ron World)

    So, with yet more High Street retailers going into the question of how Ron World is funded raises it's ugly head. Looking at the websites of the both of the joint agents Briant, Champion, Long here and Savills here it would appear that Ron World is struggling to attract interest despite all of...
