    Just saw this bit of news on the Sky Sports website that got me thinking: http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11719_6635800,00.html Sturrock stated at the Q & A he was one of our transfer targets during the Summer, but returned to Stockport on loan as he'd enjoyed his time there last...

    Difference in Embargos

    Was reading the Metro on the way in to work this morning, and it had a small piece on Portsmouth's difficulties and the embargo they are currently under. However, it then stated that as they only had 18 listed players they were allowed to bring players in? Now obviously we have a damn sight less...

    On the sports news this morning the newsreader stated that: Southend United may yet be allowed to sign players. I didn't hear the rest of the article, as I had just turned on the radio. Did anybody else hear this? No news on the OS or the other news channels.
  11. Is Martin *that*bad...

    Christ, shrimperzone suicide coming up.... I've begun to take stock of the situation we find ourselves in. Probably because things looked so bleak and I was so angry and frustrated (as are we all no doubt) that i almost gave up completely on the club and in doing so, probably removed the...

    Fossets Farm.................progress?

    I know I am likely to be shot down by others in the know but is it true that is was stated somewhere that we would see progress at the new stadium site in the summer? Was this said by the esteemed RM at the Q&A earlier this year? Having driven past the site at least once a week for what seems...

    A bit closer to home, in the council elections, amongst the usual guff in the letterbox from all candidates, was an outright allegation of one councillor deciding on a road project scheme to help herself. Southchurch Independent candidate Mike Wilson stated "At Cuckoo Corner a survey showed...
