    Tonight, I have finally given up on the gaffer.

    Ok here goes, it will be based purely on emotion and how I feel right now - I often try and wait '24 hours' for the dust to settle and allow myself to calm down but tonight I am ashamed to see me team conceed 5 goals at home to Dagenham and Redbridge who effectively are a non league club. We...

    Enjoyed the match last night , it was a very entertaining evening + well worth the tenner admission. But some of the decisions by our management team was ridiculous. We had 2 of our trialists who must wonder why they wasted their time coming to the club. Firstly Don Cowan , a lightening fast...

    I am Ron Martin

    I used to be involved with a partnership called Delancey, we were both property developers ...They did not see the big picture I saw of using the biggest area of internal development in Southend, the huge plot at Roots Hall. I eventually managed to buy their interest out, I borrowed 4 mill to do...

    Rumours from last night

    This Thursday, Tara Brady is in the High Court in a case v Ron Martin to recover the money he is owed. I haven't seen it myself. I haven't seen this anywhere... can anyone confirm or deny? Also, apparently the word is that Cresswell is looking to head back up north for family reasons and may...

    Ron's address on "Developments with the Council" from programme v Bristol Rovers

    Ron's address on "Developments with the Council" from programme v Bristol Rovers As this had been requested by others on the match report thread, I thought I would post this so it's a bit more easily found for those interested... Includes Capital Letters where originally written! :winking:

    Question Sunday Mirror article about Ron Martin

    The chap I sit next to at Roots Hall told me that there was apparently an article in yesterdays Sunday Mirror that was slagging off Ron Martin. Have had a look online but can't seem to find anything about it. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Or even better, if someone has a copy of...

  13. Who Wants Our Club Dead?

    There is a concerted campaign going on to drive Ron Martin out of business and deny him the chance to build Martin's Mall at Fosset's Farm. So what? Martin has a reputation for making enemies and saying what people want to hear while doing things they'd rather he didn't. Not many people would...
  14. Its Over!

    Right, Its over, all the fuss & drama of the last few days has gone. Sturrock wont be at Wembley in a SUFC capacity, except supporting, Phil Brown is our new manager & will be doing the job RON MARTIN has paid him to do. The finances of Bernie this Bernie that, its nothing new to us, we have...

    Time to move on

    So it's been a crazy few days, PS out and back in for Wembley and PB in as our new boss. The General vibe on here has been pretty negative to the situation and especially to Ron Martin, which is nothing unusual. This is the place to vent and to post your views but now I believe it is time for...

    Hostility against Phil Brown.

    And we wonder why we are in the bottom league? The question of wherther we should have sacked Luggy has no bearing on the new guy appointed. Whether you have issues with Ron Martin - also irrelevent to a new manager. I am disgusted that supporters are hostile to a guy who has not even started...

    Funny old game, isn't it?

    As our club becomes the centre of league 2 attention yet again in one of the most bizarre stories ever (club appoints new manager but allows old one to manage us 2 weeks later in a cup final) I have been thinking about the game, the situation and my feelings exactly when I saw the news that...

    Question The Blue Knights Consortium

    Just going to throw it out there. When we were due to be wound up previously with a £2mil+ tax bill, there was a consortium of local business men, all Southend fans, who wanted to buy the club for a quid and take on the all the debts? Anyone know if they are still kicking around? Seems like...
