    An Obituary

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: - Knowing when...

    My view on the last few days...

    Big welcome must go to Sturrock, & Widdrington on coming to the club, lets hope they can bring some much needed stability and success to our beloved club. I feel quite positive about them coming in as our new management duo, liking the positivity and the willingness to get stuck in to...

    On the Bright side......

    Whilst taking my 2.5 year old on a rather long walk yesterday, I decided to try and educate him in the culture of my beloved SUFC..... I am pleased to report, that by the end of the walk, he was coherently, and rather loudly, chanting SEA, SEA, SEASIDERS walking down Green Lane in Eastwood...
  4. Q and a summary-- another broken promise

    Most of you will remember that Mr Martin said he would post a summary of the Q and A session held back in March on the OS,as a final part of his trilogy of blogs on the state of our football club. This Q and A summary has not been forthcoming and I suspect that there is more chance of France...
  5. A Ron Martin Statement Needed. Ron, please read.

    Anyone seen or herd from our great leader? About time we did isn't it? We are discussing the problems of our beloved football club on here every day, the things that are fact, the things that are destroying us day by day, speculation and our worries for the clubs future. Things couldn't be much...

    Rusty's X-Files - A Brief SUFC Themed Special

    There's not much to say anymore. Even the most pink-hued of the rose-tinted spectacle brigade are joining us in the realist corner - our beloved club is well and truly ****ed. I'm not going to post a rallying cry - I know we'll get behind the team if by some miracle we're able to get a team...
  7. Only one man to blame.......

    I'm not even worried about relegation now, as far as I'm concerned we're down and I don't blame Tilson or the players one bit. How the hell can we expect the playing and coaching staff to be motivated when we're not paying them??? The way Ron Martin has shockingly mis-managed our beloved club -...

    "Crisis? What Crisis?"

    I just wondered if anyone might care to join me in a little levity - to chuckle in the face of adversity whilst we contemplate the current difficulties faced by our beloved club. I thought it might be time to play a tune or two. Now I'd like to propose this ... if you were a DJ, what song would...

    Get behind the club or gtfo.

    What is this?! Demonstrations? Protests? Moaning? Anger towards RM? Come on... The club KNOWS its in a mess, the players may/may not have been paid and at the moment we seem to be in a freefall. The players don't need reminding of this mess on Saturday when they are trying their damndest to...

    Weds March 10th - Winding Up Order

    So RM and the overworked legal team are back in the docks on Wednesday, to face yet another winding up order, for unpaid debts IRO £200,000. This is monies that RM claims to be "overpayments" on the substantial tax bill of £2.15m that was settled in November. Obviously HMRC do not agree with...

    The Southend United Board...

    Consists of who now? I know it's been split into the "Playing" and "Business" side... but who's who? And also, as fans of our beloved club - would you accept somebody on the board with a bankruptcy order (potentially discharged) but nether the less, soembody who has been made banrupt.. which...

    The Chilcot Inquiry

    I have never seen so many Old Bill in one place at one time until this morning. I was about to nip into Pret for my morning coffee, when about 15 meat wagons came past, swiftly followed by about 30 coppers on foot. Plus there was the incessant sound of helicopters in the sky. In my hazy pre dawn...

    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...

    Time for RM to show he means it - actions speak louder than words !

    In his countless blogs, which do as much to confuse as clarify, we have been reassured by our beloved Chairman that the club has a bright future. This month could well be pivotal to the club's future. Cast your minds back a few short years and many of us were urging Uncle Ron to not let a...

    1st April 2005: Southend United 2 – 0 Bristol Rovers (League Two) The second half of the decade began with our beloved Shrimpers surging up the league on the back of a series of virtuoso performances from new signing Freddy Eastwood. From the second week of January we went on a long unbeaten run...

    Please post your heartfelt condolences to Jonny Stokes here. It brings a tear to my eye that my beloved club beat your East London Scum today. :)
