  1. Justin King to Leave Sainsburys.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25941862 I know he was the name continually mentioned in our dealings over the new stadium ---- I hope his leaving will not affect anything.

    Academy Schools

    Does anyone on here have some knowledge on Academy school's? I ask because in a certain Academies case I find the whole set-up a bit worrying. In question for me is The Basildon Academies. I have a daughter at the lower site since September 2011 and my dealings with it have led me to go as far...
  3. Its Only A Game

    Anyone had dealings with "The Road Traffic Group"?

    These people are really bugging me now. I had a small knock in my car a year ago when i was stationary and someone hit me at about 5mph. My car didn't looked damaged but as it was a company lease vehicle I had to get it checked at the local audi dealer. They pass all this work onto another...
  4. Breaking News Brian Wheeler leaves SUFC

    A source close to the club has stated the Commercial man and whipper-up of the crowd on match-day. Brian Wheeler has left the club. A very strange decision as Brian and his wife moved back to England from Cyprus, at the club's insistence, to work full time only a few weeks ago. With the above...
  5. Yorkshire Blue

    Liverpool

    Just a thought, but after Liverpool's comedy deadline day transfer dealings which left them with only 2 players in a position in which their manager would rather play three, who was that kid we flogged them and what were the sell-ons?
  6. Dick Bate's Protege

    iPad repair advice...

    Moron that I am, I just dropped and cracked the glass screen on my iPad 2. I've only had it 3 months, has anybody had any dealings with Apple regarding this sort of thing? Am I likely to have trouble with them attempting to charge me the Earth for repair/replacement? BTW I purchased it at...
  7. Southend's best transfer dealings

    Following on from the thread about the worst bits of business in the transfer market how about the best deals. Ill kick off Freddy Eastwood bit obvious this, short term loan debut goal within 7.7 seconds went on to score a hat trick we then paid peanuts for him he scored plenty of goals and we...

    Rons new year blog

    BLOG FROM JAN 2008 JUST SHOWS HOW FAR WEV'E FALLEN IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME!! The transfer windows favour the Premiership and larger clubs who can target players within this condensed period of opportunity and do not have the same financial constraints as might befall the smaller clubs...

    The Financial Situation Explained (Sort of!)

    Found this on a Grimsby forum HERE. Quite why it is on there I don't know, but details the mess we are in, quite well I feel. Ammendments in red. Feel free to suggest anything you feel is incorrect or needs adding. I will then edit this list, so it's all in one place. 1] Sainsburys...
  10. Is Martin *that*bad...

    Christ, shrimperzone suicide coming up.... I've begun to take stock of the situation we find ourselves in. Probably because things looked so bleak and I was so angry and frustrated (as are we all no doubt) that i almost gave up completely on the club and in doing so, probably removed the...

    ING Direct

    Good people of the Zone. Has anybody used or do use ING Direct for anything? Thinking of opening a Savings Account with them as they seem to give the best interest in these tight times, but nobody I know has had any dealings with them... As I know there's a fair few finance type people on here...

    Question Worried of Southend...........SEASON CARDS

    There comes a time and I think it is rapidly approaching if not already here when a persons position within any organisation may become untenable. Bringing an organisation into disrepute by what is said or by action that is not in the best ineterests of the company would and should in most cases...

    Thoughts before next season!

    Its not often that I dont sleep at night but last night instead of slipping into a coma I found myself thinking about the start of next season. Normally I am filled with a tinge of optimism and excitement with regards to how we will do and are our new signings going to mirror "Ronaldo" or...

    Question Should we blame the 'Consortium' ?

    I am not exonerating RM but I have heard it said that the 'Consortium' stepped in to prevent RM from putting the Club into Administration in November, (in a similar style to Ken Bates), to deliberately make RM's life difficult - supposedly due to dissatisfaction from past dealings with RM...
  15. Webb's Divided Loyalties?

    I've just seen this posted on another football forum that I occasionaly gander at... As you may know, Webb isn't the most liked of characters down in Yeovil and following an article written for their fansite, Webb allegedly responded with this: Link here...

    BBC sport blog on our troubles

    Not sure if its already been posted somewhere, but anyone who is a little unclear of the deadlines and HMRC dealings, this BBC sport blogger has done a little article on us as well as cardiff city; Southend, said the HMRC's man, were a "habitual defaulter", "plainly insolvent" and "must be...
  17. Successfull Transfer Window?

    So, the Janruary Window is closed, and that looks to be the end of our wheelings and dealings for now. So, how does everyone feel about the transfers, both in and out? Was it a good window for us, are you happy with what's happened through Jan. Or was it a bad one? Here's a reminder of what's...

    Slithering To The Brink

    The swelling band of English football clubs in crisis has a new member and it's my own team, Southend United. Late on Monday night, Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs (HRMC) cancelled a planned Winding Up Petition and elected to pursue an Administration instead. Put simply, the club were flicked...

    A bit of perspective

    You've got to say the natives are getting restless are as Southend fans are concerned over the past few weeks and I'm sure a lot of this is due to the relative recent successes that T&B (& RM as well in certain areas don't forget) have brought to our club. However, just been reading the...

    Rusty Shackleford's X-Files: SUFC Special

    I thought I would depart from the normal RSXF theme of carl, steveo and I arguing with all the Godless lefties and discuss something which really doesn’t belong in the Pub section – my view on the current state of Southend United, both on and off the field. Steve Tilson has presided over one...
