    Players attitude

    Someone (a loyal supporter and season ticket holder) I was sitting next to in the West Stand last night, suggested something that I really hadn't thought of before. His statement was: "Club wants to get promoted - players don't!" When I asked him what he meant he said, "most of the players...

    Jobs etc

    I thought it might be an idea for everyone to state their job title, or whether they're students/carers etc. That way we can avoid any arguments as to who said what. Of course, anyone on Linkedin, can join the Southend United Fans in Business group. Barry the Dog has just joined. Me: freelance...
  3. Regional growth fund

    After months of the coalition doing their best to eliminate any chance of economic growth they have finally announced a policy that suggests that they haven't entirely forgotten the meaning of the term 'econmic growth'...
  4. Does the Marketing leave a lot to be desired ?

    Similay to the Tara has backfired article. I believe the marketing area of the Club is not as good as it was when Brian Wheeler was at the helm. Admittedly things were easier then as we achieved back to back promotions. For me things could still improve in this capacity but as someone...
  5. Club re-invigoration needed?

    A few have posted that they are not best pleased with how the ticket office is operating and that the promoting / marketing of the Club is not as good as it was when Brian Wheeler was here. Maybe things were easier back then as we were in the Championship. I for one think the Club could be...

    Glad the girls found jobs but did anyone else feel the show had been edited to show Southend in the worst possible light?

    RBS Marriage Cheat Revealed

    So there we have it, while Sir Fred Goodwin was screwing up everyday people's money, jobs, etc, he was also doing something similar in his private life, though not to his wife. A bank employee no less. All whilst trying to hide behind a High Court judge at the same time. Such a busy man. Did...

    Tube Strikes

    Not on the politics sub-forum as I don't see this as political but common sense. I note that the RMT intend to strike 2 x 3 days over two weeks in order to save the jobs of, er, TWO of their members. Here's a shock, they just happen to be senior union activists. I don't wish to be...

    Top Gear: Alan Partridge Speaks Out

    Good column here from Steve Coogan. "As a huge fan of Top Gear. I normally regard the presenters' brand of irreverence as a part of the rough and tumble that goes with having a sense of humour. I've been on the show three times and had a go at their celebrity-lap challenge, and I would love to...

    Now I Know What the Helmets For.

    Since joining my new company things have moved along in the recovery world for me. My gaffer is one of these chaps who wont ask you to do something he wouldn't or couldn't do himself which is in sharp contrast to the last lot. He loaths paperwork and if the true is told, sitting in his office...

    Blame the Manager?

    Just read this article - http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/9346616.stm - and with all the speculation about the jobs of Grant, Hodgson and Ancelotti and the number of managers who have been sacked in the last couple of weeks, it's got me thinking. Why is always the managers who get the...

    Food For Thought.

    I've been a bit quiet on here for a while, frankly the whole political arena is depressing. Even so, I've busy doing what I do. I thought I'd share some thoughts.... The Recession The recession was caused, in essence, by the collapse of the banking industry that took a gung-ho approach to...

    FA Cup Draw On 1 July

    1pm at FA Headquarters. Details of who our local sides get will be posted as soon as I get them (by the way it should be noted that a full Southend Manor first team squad were back for pre-season training last Thursday). Basildon United have had the dubious distinction of being mentioned in...
