  2. Raising funds for a Southend Charity: Possibly raffling the Exec Box for a game

    Hi, I hope you don't mind this unorthodox approach but my friends run a small pets rehome charity and we are thinking of local community things to do. I have yet to hear back from the commercial team at the football club so wondered what you all think? Proposal would be to auction off the...
  3. The Reasons Why?

    A wee birdie told me to explain why certain players not signed up yet. Our new chief exec and the gaffer have been on holiday and the physio is also sunning himself. Plus some of his targets are holidaying and negotiating over the phone. Which means one or two of the main ingredients for players...

  12. Zone Update Box Office

    14 days to go before Ipswich match and we have 7 players. I just called the Box Office to ask what their policy is on getting season ticket refund....just for your guide, season tickets are non-refundable (oooh shock horror) but they will give me an e-mail address to put my request in writing. I...
  13. My Dave Webb Conspiracy Theory......

    I am beggining to think that Dave Webb's arrival at the club as "assistant manager" is a smoke screen for a more deeper role at the club. Let me explain my thought....Webb has previous Chief Exec status at L1 Yeovil, SUFC are up S&*t street and desperately need new investors- Dave Webb has...

  16. The Peasants Are Revolting

    Players leaving before the deadline, no signings coming in. Rumours of financial problems circulating amongst fans. Chief Exec held in contempt by supporters. Have you guessed who it is yet? (And I'm not talking about Southend)

    Question Who is Geoff King?

    The man (or one of them!) that is making a lot of blood boil at the moment - who is he? * Is he associated with Ron Martin in anyway (past business etc) * What is (or was) his 'day job' * Was he successful? * What are his strengths/weaknesses in his background? * Is he 'under performing' in...

    After recent comments from Arsene Wenger and Chief Exec of Arsenal. They made the point that 14 PL clubs would want to see the transfer window in January go. Do you think the January transfer window is a chance to refresh the squad mid-season, or an excuse for managers to show there lack of...
