    Housing market

    Great if your a seller and awful if your a buyer. I'm getting married this month and looking to move out of our two bed rented flat into a 3 bed house. Can't afford to buy with most places like £250k+ and saving 25k is beyond us at the moment and rentals are just crazy. 3 bed houses in dumpy...

  3. Argyle

    Hi guys, Argyle fan here in peace. As you may know, our club is still in administration as the season starts. The administrator picked his preferred bidder many weeks ago but as yet that bidder has not completed the deal, as deadlines have apparently repeatedly been extended. The bidder...

    Prospects in talks with alternative buyer?

    There is a full page of articles in today's Echo which is nothing we have not heard before but some of the dates being mentioned are a tad confusing. The two sides in the Prospects saga are blaming each other for the termination of the contract..with the club asking for more time and Prospects...
  5. The Blame Game !

    Firstly I am no fan of Ron Martin. Like many fan's I feel his obsession with the new stadium for his own personal game has harmed our club in recent seasons. That said I feel there are those far more culpable for this afternoon's performance than the Ron. Most of these player's put in a decent...

    Administration essential and Sainsbury's

    Administration essential even if Blues find money. Southend United should be placed into administration, even if they clear their current tax debt of 238k, the taxman has said. Catherine Addy, representing HM Revenue and Customs, described the club as "demonstrably insolvent", a persistent...

    Ok, here's the second part to my review of the League One season. Apologies for the delay, have been busy this past week. Brighton Quite how Brighton finished as high as 13th should pay great testament to the work of Gus Poyet since his arrival. Having narrowly avoided the drop last time out...

    Bad news potentially... Stockport could be thrown out of the league if they don't find a buyer within 6 weeks. They went into administration on 30/4/09 and the rules are that they must come out of it within 12 months. If they don't they will be wound up and their golden share witheld, which...

    For those that sell on eBay

    Just thought I'd warn you (probably obvious) about some of the things that PayPal do when you have any sort of dispute with a buyer... I never knew this but PayPal are very much a "buyer is always right" service, be very careful when selling anything, proof of postage is NOT enough if a buyer...

    I'd quite like to buy a flat with my girlfriend, but it's (almost) literally impossib

    Having watched house and flat prices soar now for about 15 years, I kinda always suspected they'd have to come down again at some point. And indeed they have of late. Yet STILL it's practically a dream for a first time buyer. Having had a chat with a financial advisor, we've got a few options...
  16. Interpol Shrimper


    Has anybody done the "print postage label" option on eBay through PayPal yet? How do you guarantee you've charged enough postage without weighing/sizing the package? Also, one of my recent sales, I've got to send to Denmark. What is my best way of getting a true price for continental P&P as...
  17. Southend v Chelsea on the spreads

    Sporting Index have marked up Chelsea supremacy as 2.3-2.5 i.e. you can buy Chelsea supremacy at 2.5 or sell at 2.3. e.g. if you buy Chelsea supremacy at £200 a goal and Chelsea win 4-0 you win £300 if it is a 0-0 draw you lose £500. So would you be a buyer or a seller? Much as I dream of a...

    Grays Athletic Sponsors Withdraw - Press Statement

    http://graysathletic.co.uk/ Looks like Grays Athletic are now in very serious trouble indeed. I am sure this is probably the beginning of the end for the club now as there is no way that unless a buyer is found that they will be anywhere other than bankrupt or back in the Essex Senior League...

    Gretna to close on May 17th ??

    They lived the dream, going from L3 to the SPL in 3 seasons, but at what cost ?? Reports suggest that they will close on May 17th unless a buyer can be found
