    Blackpool - Up For Sale

    Breaking that finally Blackpool are up for sale. I guess this follows on from the high court decision the other day :- https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/nov/06/oystons-blackpool-ordered-pay-shareholder-high-court-valeri-belokon
  2. Contact for address change

    As a shareholder (please, no laughing), I guess I best update my details with the club so they send the accounts to the correct address. Any idea of who I contact? Is it club secretary Amanda Balcomb?
  3. Breaking News Brown to be Club Shareholder - Innovative deal looms

    As has now been reported in todays Echo. can see this either way, that he is confident of staying on as manager or if he's not and he goes,perhaps the shareholder bit allows him to still cash in at the club, new monies and maybe monies owed. over to you guys n ladies to discuss.
  4. Shrimperzone away tickets idea/help??

    So away tickets might be a bit of a nightmare. Especially for non seaso/shareholder exiles. I'd happily pay a bit more if someone was able to go down to the office and pick up tickets and meet outside the ground. It could be arranged via SZ/PayPal and an 'admin fee' could go towards SZ running...

    Southend United - Shares

    Hi. I have been doing a little thinking and wanted to understand what 'Shares' of Southend United are actually in circulation and what the Shareholder actually owns a Share of. I know that may seem a little daft, and it may be as simple as the Shares are to own a piece (of capital) of Southend...

  8. Question Shareholder's AGM--Any news of date?

    Am I right in thinking that the AGM is now long overdue,as it is now approximately 18 months since the last AGM was held and Companies Law states that the maximum period between AGMs is 15 months? Did this topic crop up in the discussions with TB?

    FAO all Ron Martin believers, apologists, apathists: why I shall be voting option 5..

    Posters on this forum such as mcnasty & pboreham have questioned what a protest against ron will achieve & questioned the commitment of those participating, whilst also taking enjoyment from lampooning poor jack in the process. I don't claim to have the right...

  11. Do we just have to accept we're stuck with Ron Martin now?

    I've posted something about this on another thread, but I fear it may get lost so think it needs a thread of its own. I'm concerned that suddenly yet another PR masterstroke - the likes of which we've seen many times before - has occurred and some people think again that everything's rosy and...

    Scottish Cup Final; Ross County v Dundee Unitred

    There's only one place to be this weekend. West Stand at Hampden Park. It's another Highland Clearance. Dingwall, a town of just 5,200, and Ross & Cromarty barely making it past 20,000. It's going to be a relatively empty part of the UK come Saturday, though, with over 17,000 descending on...
  13. Zone Update Tonight's meeting with Ron Martin

    Hi all Sadly I couldn't get to tonight's meeting at the Palace. I am a shareholder, but could not go due to work commitments. I would, however, like to publish a story later tonight, on what was said etc. Did anyone take notes/pics from the meeting, and would be willing to share them either...

    Are some people so thick?

    Every week we now get the usual "Ron must go" type thread. When will people understand? WE CAN'T GET RID OF HIM. HE OWNS THE CLUB. IT'S HIS. HE IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE. None of this has anything to do with the fact that he is or isn't doing a good job, does or doesn't tell us the truth, has...

    Backlash against the Bankers

    I know we may have one or two on here, but just wondered what, if any campaigns people have signed up to... Firstly we have Billy Bragg's NoBonus4RBS - "If you pay tax in the UK, you are a major shareholder in several banks - Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), Lloyds and Northern Rock - who were...

    AGM Notes of Q&A Session

    This is all rather rough, OBL's will probably be better, but i left her to get sloshed with the shareholder bubbly. RM - Ron Martin ST - Steve Tilson BJ - Bill Jennings GK - Geoffrey King RM asked firstly why 1 person had voted against the accounts. RM said he thought this rather bizarre...
