    Back from the Trust's first liaison meeting with the new Head of Operations, Steve Waggott, along with Finance Director, Patrick Van der Waag, and one of the topics up for discussion today was iFollow. Now, to summarise best I can, it seems that you can't use this in more than one additional...

    Have we ever played slicker football?

    I've been going week in week out since 01/02, and the football on display at the moment IMO is on par if not greater than the football we saw under tilson in the 05/06 campaign. It's one thing to be confident enough to attempt the flicks and skill but the players we have actually have the...

    Would championship football bring forward the stadium build?

    It's obviously a very big ask of this team to gain championship football, but would championship football affect the build of the new stadium. It would certainly highlight a greater need to house bigger support. It would definately put us in a greater shop window to seek additional investment...

    Football Parking Next Season

    I've heard that Southend High School aren't opening their car park next season. Obviously this is going to inconvenience the people that park there, but the knock on effect will be that people who usually park in the main car park may well be squeezed out due to greater demand. Where are all...

    Being called up by England after 3 Premier League starts

    Forget the Fourth & Upwards Cup Knockout European Revenue Securing League results, is there any greater indictment of English football than the lack of depth that leads to this?

    Travel arrangements

    Just thought I'd get the ball rolling by starting this thread. It appears that there are no engineering works planned for next Saturday on both train services into London. C2c have said they are laying on extra carriages only, and I await a response from Greater Anglia.

    SNP - What next?

    For whatever electoral voting reasons we now have 56 SNP MPs in the House of Westminster. Given 'Call me Dave' has a working majority, I'm struggling to see what material difference they will make to the mix apart from putting a far greater focus on Scotland in the media, brassing off the Welsh...

    Reality at last, relief..and maybe greater urgency?

    At last!! After what seems like several season of not winning but clinging onto a false position (false because we had played more games) in a Play-Off position - the league finally has a more realistic look and feel about it. Is almost a relief. Plymouth Argyle currently deserve to be in 7th...

    C2C and Greater Anglia have announced that there will be no trains on Boxing Day. So the trip to AFC Wimbledon will have to be made without the aid of the train. Should be fun on the roads.
