  1. British Land - New Stadium

    Very rare for me to post something, but hopefully the start of some positive news... ahead... sometimes! Last night I attended a networking event in central London for building contractors, developers etc. The regional development Director from British Land, confirmed directly to me, they are...
  2. Our own Worst Enemy

    I wonder how many of us actually thought we'd finish in the top half of the table when the season began? have we as fans got carried away by the period of good results we had towards the end of the year and early part of this year? it its arguable that Wycombe deserved to be promoted off the...

    It's time for my reality check

    The season to date has been about unexpected highs and predictable lows. We got promoted by taking the last (4th) promotion place, doing so with a fairy tale ending at Wembley. That sort of finish to the season has tended to cloud our reality genes and we therefore believe we can do it again...
  4. Dear RM....

    Dear RM, oh exalted leader would it be at all possible to make a press release that involves nothing more than facts? Let the fans know a few things so that our debates are more informed. Is there an embargo? Does PB have a transfer kitty? Will the s106 be satisfied in the near...
  5. So what do we know?

    1) PB may or may not be signing a new contract. 2) FF may or may not be close to starting. 3) RM may or may not be in a position to deliver. 4) We may or may not be able to bring new players in. 5) We may or may not be a dead duck in the water. All in all its good to be a Blues fan. Its that...
  6. Question Are Play-offs a certainty??

    On BBC Essex last night, they were wanging on as if a PO place was a dead cert. They kept saying top 3 might be hard to grab, so Blues will have to settle for play-offs, but my question is, when did our PO spot become a guarantee? I'd say we'll be there or thereabouts, but I wouldn't take our...

    The year's biggest waste of police resources?

    The Original Rude Boy

    "It's a bit like what Charlie Watts said about the Stones ... five years playing, twenty years waiting around." Sir Buttz Yoddles spoke wearily as he was in discomfort from a horrific abscess for which he had just started taking analgesic medication. His weariness was not helped by the...

    Strange times

    They say that the one thing financial markets don't like is uncertainty.....................we can only pray that this truism doesn't apply to football clubs. It looked so different at the start of the Summer, even allowing for the disappointment of missing out in the play-offs. The backbone...

  14. Question When was the Golden Age?

    The one certainty about the coming season is that people will be telling us they've just seen their worst ever game at Roots Hall, this is the worst ever Southend side, this is the weakest League two ever, I'm not renewing my season ticket, etc, etc. As people were saying this even when we were...
  15. Paul Sturrock is the key to next season.

    Now we are not going up, the emotional maelstrom begins. However, take a step back and look at the bigger picture. First, Paul Sturrock is the key to our success next season and must be given at least one more year to get this right. With the uncertainty of our financial situation, players...

    Memory Lane Season reviews 1920 to 1955
