  1. War chest discovered or just another cunning plan?

    Phil has been indicating he hopes to sign or resign several players. Either next seasons budget will be smashed or it's a load of waffle in the hope fans buy ST's or am I just being cynical? Instead of talking to the press Phil just bloody sign them !

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Bring me sunshine - Morecambe 0 Southend United 3

    Not the most exciting game I have seen but the 2 early goals led to a rather stress free 90 minutes that followed. The minute silence was impeccably observed and most of the Morecambe crowd continued that silence for the remainder of the match. :winking: A good performance by everyone on the...

    I am Ron Martin

    I used to be involved with a partnership called Delancey, we were both property developers ...They did not see the big picture I saw of using the biggest area of internal development in Southend, the huge plot at Roots Hall. I eventually managed to buy their interest out, I borrowed 4 mill to do...

    Ron Martin...

    So all the rumours of our financial problems and possible administration have now been confirmed as true then. As one of the "mug punters" conned by Martin and his cohorts into believing that we could help our club by buying shares in it, with promises of a wonderous future and sparkling...

    10/1 Southend to be relegated new funding idea from Ron!

    After today's reports could this be his cunning plan to fund the new stadium. Are Coral, Ladbrokes and Hills sitting on chunky ante post betting slips for us to go down as the lack of financial input into the team is getting serious now?

    Tyne Is Running Out

    Newcastle United are going down. Whatever you read in the press, whatever club sources say on the website, they are circling the drain ready to be sucked down into the Championship. There is no hope on Tyneside anymore. Their supporters, more than anyone else at the club, realise that this is...

    Nervous Gunners Slip Through

    Cesc Fabregas is the youngest Arsenal captain since Tony Adams and, appropriately enough, the new era began much like the old one. The Gunners were tentative and unsure of themselves, but recovered their composure to sneak a victory. One nil to the Arsenal? Meet the new boss, same as the old...

    As you can enter plans even if you don't own the land how about providing it will not cost much stick in an application to Colchester council to have there new ground site changed to landfill?

    Battle of the Sitcoms - THE FINAL !!!!!!

    Ok ok, i know the second semi hasn't quite finished, but it'd take a cunning plan of Baldrick proportions for that result to change so i'm using poetic licence to kick this off now so i can get some work done :( Well, i think its been fun and extremely well fought, and after 30 matches and 2285...

    Sir Alex Ferguson

    It's not often that a manager can switch to good, old-fashioned 4-4-2 and be thought of as a tactical genius, but when Sir Alex Ferguson deployed his troops in a formation that many believed he had turned his back on forever, it was another demonstration of why he's still at the top of his game...

  17. Who needs later ticket office opening?

    Not a poll, exactly, but this IMHO is more likely to gauge likely take up of a late evening opening time than just expecting people to add to a thread. PS choice two is because Ikon board is too cunning to let me do a one-option poll

    Billericay Game

    As the game is down as a Southend United X1 is it to be the stiffs? - made that mistake when I went to King's Lynn a couple of years ago. Or is it a cunning way of looking less embarassing if we lose?
