Because on the face of it we have had two or three years of continual improvement on the field. We certainly have the most exciting squad for a while. We are going well in the league and could challenge for promotion.
You would think supporters might be happy and supportive!!?
Errr no. Constant personal abuse at an extremely successful manager in Phil Brown.
The Chairman? Frustrating yes. Makes promises he does not fulfill? Indeed. Poor communicator? Without doubt.
However, balance those observations with THREE trips to the Millenium. TWO visits to Wembley. Three promotions including being crowned Champions of the 3rd tier for the first time in our history. Oh and we beat Manchester United for the hell of it.
So, we have not been wound up, kicked out of Roots Hall or deducted points. Those are really the only business facts that supporters should really care about (unless the club spends pensioners Christmas savings) as in the main the finances are the business of the Board of Directors.
From the incessant slagging off of the most successful Chairman in our history and a successful manager - you would think we are bottom of League 2 with a desperate team, having had points deducted for our financial irregularities.
But we have not! So why do so many whinge on and on as though we have?
Do you actually support Southend United and look forward to further success? It would appear not.
