There's something very wrong with this football club. I've followed SUFC for more than 30 years and, aside from Anton Johnson's brief suicidal tenure during the first half of the 1980s, I cannot think of a worse position that Southend United finds itself at the moment. Ron Martin might spin a few good yarns that keep those wolves from the door for a few more weeks but reality lays itself out with unmistakable inevitability. The club's owners - or rather its holding company Sainsbury's Supermarket Ltd - has little interest in the future of Southend United Football Club but huge enthusiasm for the plot of land currently occupied by the Roots Hall ground. Fossetts Farm is a mere pipe dream that has masked the true intention of RHL; the liquidation of SUFC Ltd and the coerced conversion of the existing covenant which has little value against suitable investment for Southend-on-Sea. Relegation is simply part of the plan by the holding company to destroy SUFC and acquire valuable estate - it has always been so since Martin Dawn plc got involved with the football club. Count those days for they are numbered.
