I'd hazard a guess at it being within the exclusive interview inside the Echo tomorrow...

But, surely they would break it first on the OS? No?

Depends on how the negotiations with the Echo went today. If they agreed to ease off in exchange for a few readership boosting exclusives, then it's a beneficial deal for both parties.

It's local press, how beneficial to the Echo would it be? Especially when they post their stories online... i know there's the ticket deal.. but still?

Anyway, i'm playing devil's advocate, i just thought he would want to shout from the roof tops of how he saved the club.. again.

There's been a few occasions, especially over the last few months, where stories have been kept in print and then posted on the site the next day. The Sainsbury's deal which effectively saved us being the most recent.

How many Southend fans do you reckon would spend 30p if they saw "Blues Exclusive!" on the billboards when passing Smiths or a newsagent?

I fully expect it to be announced tomorrow afternoon, just after it's reported briefly on the Echo website with "full interview in today's Echo" written just after it.

Fair enough.. we'll see. Let's hope there hasn't been any last minute glitches then.. That must have been some serious arse crawling either from the Echo, or RM himself. Who wanted who more? RM and the ticket deal? Or Echo and exclusive?

Exactly.

The Echo agree to keep their Woodward and Bersteins on a short lead and in return they get a weekly column by one of our players - possibly with an amusing pun based title such as Mark Gower's 'Mark my words'.

Another idea could be for Ron to review new club/dance tracks in a regular feature called 'House Martin'.

My mole tells me it is going to be vignettes from one of our ex players North of the Border, with the working title "From our Forran Correspondent".

Jesus christ, I thought it was a rip off when it cost 30p and I delivered it when I was 13.

When I delivered it in 1974 it was 12 1/2 p for the whole week. And some folk moaned then about the 1/2p when I collected the cash each week. Though the rich ones at the top of Kents Hill Rd North in Sarf Benfleet tipped well.

Once when collecting the money in heavy snow someone's front door got stuck. They pulled it hard to open and the vibrations shifted all the snow off the top of the roof to bury me, sending my cash collection everywhere. Never recovered it all and the woman who was responsible for our collections made me make the difference good out of my own pocket. Let her tyres down that night. Take a mossey on down to around 75 Kents Hill Road North or thereabouts and you might still find the odd penny lying around.

Still though my best ever job to date.
