    Lessons Learned?

    The season starts in less than a month. Have we learned nothing? Go back twelve months. No left back, Bailey and Clarke out of contract, Gower gone and little in the way of positive news regarding transfers. With the season approaching fast, and pretty much all of the pre-season games out of...

    Chairman's Blog 12th May

    Chairman's Blog I believe I have now answered all those questions – either singularly or combined – that have been sent to the Club’s media department. There were one or two “stragglers” but these points were covered in earlier responses. I have yet to come to a...

    Ron's Blog 6/5/09

    Haven't seen this anywhere else yet...... Chairman's Blog What a good day Saturday was and with nothing to play for I thought that the team performed well and remained committed to the cause right to the end. It was also a day to celebrate the success of the Club’s youth policy which, I...

    Return Of The Old Guard

    How very retro. There was a time when any game between Arsenal and Manchester United was epoch-shaking. They were the two giants of the domestic game, battling out their own private war while the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and, this'll make you laugh, Newcastle could only look on from the...
  8. Rons Blog 07.04.09

    Firstly let me apologise for last week’s “void”. It was my intention to answer the questions raised over a period of two to three weeks and at the end of that period to review whether supporters generally thought it was a good idea to continue with a blog – be it weekly, fortnightly or not at...
  9. Chairman's Blog - 24th March

    Chairman's Blog As promised the Club’s media department has sifted through all the emails received to date and amalgamated these into the most frequently asked questions including some unusual ones. I am told that some of the emails have been paraphrased but I am sure they include the gist. I...

    PL Weekly Points Round 47

    A night of surprising results caught many on the hop, with Crewes draw and Scunnys demolition of Hereford adding something like 90% of all points scored, and maybe cos of that we have a few different faces up top this week with newbie DtS, Nobby Snide and Brettie Angell prominent, Ozzers good...

    University degrees.

    I'm in my second year doing a maths degree at bath uni (in the top 5 for maths). However, just got my first set of marks for semester one exams and got a 2:2. It seems most grad jobs ask for a 2:1. I know that if i'd have gone to a different uni doing an easier degree, then the work is easier...

    Applying for jobs after uni.

    I will be finishing my Sports degree in June and am currently trying to write a letter to companies within the sports industry to try and find a full time job. The kind of job i am looking for would ideally be in the Sport Development profession, but i understand that this will not happen...

    Breaking News Rons Latest Blog

    It appears the graphics didn't copy over, sorry !!! Chairman's Blog Firstly let me apologise to all those readers who were anticipating my blog yesterday. It is important that the Club do things when they say they are going to and I am sorry I could not deliver yesterday but was reliant upon...
  14. Breaking News Rons Blog

    Dear Mugs, erm, fans, the past week has been a fraught time with a myriad of problems on and off the pitch. The transfer window closed and despite the incredible and superhuman efforts of myself and to a lesser degree ST, we were unable to clinch the signing of our...

    Question Which seemingly universally hated ex-Shrimper did you think was OK?

    Following on from the Gary Jones, Dave Regis and Barry Conlon discussion on another thread, it appeared that I wasn't the only Zoner who felt that Gary Jones was a decent player, even potentially a very good player. Gary wasn't well-liked or rated by most fans, but he wasn't in the hated...

    My Take

    on matters at the club are as follows: RM is and always will be a developer. Developers are in business for the sole reason of making serious money on land opportunities - hence this is the only reason he purchased the club. Is this a bad thing? well not necessarily. I for one believe we...

    As the halfway point of the Premier League season approaches, we sent Iain Macintosh to compile reports cards for all the movers and the shakers. Who's the most improved student? Who deserves a merit award? Who's so bad that they're in danger of being moved to remedial class? Find out here...

    It's only going to get worse...

    ...well it MIGHT do since we have games coming up thick and fast, our team isn't functioning as a unit, we have no quality on the bench to shake things up and so many of our better quality loanees have returned to their clubs (even if in some cases this might not be for too long). We certainly...
