    Question Embargo

    I have heard lots lately about us being under a transfer embargo because of unpaid monies owing. Is it the Footballl League or the FA who place us under such an Embargo? Is it not possible to ask them direct whether we are under such an Embargo and why and what it would take to have it lifted...

    canveyshrimper collection for flowers

    Jackie/Tinks has asked us if she could start a collection for flowers for Harry's funeral on here. Jackie knew Harry very well so it is fitting she takes charge of this. He has as far as we know no close relatives apart from maybe a cousin or two scattered about. We feel as The Zone and his...

    Question Accounts and the Umbongo - Update!

    So I was thinking last night about the reason that the embargo was in place was that the Accountants would not release the completed Financial Statements until they had received payments (and rightly so, they aren't a charity and they provided a service). Now this got me worried again as it...

  14. Actions required ?

    Talking to people who seem to have a bit of knowledge on the subject it appears that 1) People have been using their season cards when they have stopped the payments at their banks. 2) People have been using child and student tickets when they have no right to do so. 3) Been given adult...

    Latest Rumours Tilson still not seen his money?

    Thought this was worthy of being in the main forum for now, rather than in the 'Ex-Shrimpers' forum where hardly anyone will see it. A little birdie told me recently that Mr. Tilson still hasn't seen any of the monies that he is owed by the club. That includes wages for 3 months before he was...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Crewe Alexandra

    Thought I would start this one early, as there is not much else to talk about at the moment! What is your starting XI? What will the score be? Will the Blue Monday deal, boost the attendance? Will Corr & Sturrock be fit? Is this Timlin's last game before going back to Swindon? Here...
