    The absence of Will Atkinson

    An interesting topic which came up today. There's virtually no doubt that had he stayed he would have played almost every game this season, whereas he's only made 2 starts since October for League 2 Mansfield. I wouldn't mind betting he would be cheaper than Josh Wright too. Primarily though...

    The cost of living in the south east

    Is it me or does anyone else struggle with the cost of living in the south east. I work for the NHS and so does the wife. We effectively haven't had a pay rise for 7 years. We earn the same in our roles as someone in say Carlisle. The main difference being that you can buy a house there for...

    The price of football including Southend 2017

    Here's the link to the BBC webpage on the price of football in 2017. If you're not too bothered to read the report then I've included the calculator of cost so you can check the Blues or other teams out. Enjoy. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41901398...
  9. EEEP from a players perspective!

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41839083 I found this an interesting. I initially clicked on it because I thought 'It really is, Finley Burns cost £175k' but it wasn't what I thought at all. If a player needs to move to a lower category academy for whatever reason, the new club could be...

    Fixed Odds machines

    I have never used one and have no intention either but it's a hot topic in the media at the moment. Some geezer on 5Live said words to the effect that if the maximum stake was lowered from £100 to £2 it would cost 12,000 jobs. Doesn't he mean "Profits would drop and it will affect my bonus"...

    Question Car Parking

    Can anyone advise on how the car parking at Southend High School works? Can you get a season ticket or is it pay on the day? Any ideas as to cost and whether having a match season ticket allows a discount. Thanks to all!!
