And the Southend chairman has reiterated the importance of the proposed 14,000-seater stadium to the club's future.

Have we officially dropped the size of the proposed stadium, or is that just without the 4th stand?

Not going to be sucked in. Even if it gets complete I won't be happy because I don't want to leave Roots Hall. It's home.

It will be done when it's done. I am in no rush for it but it will be nice when it arrives. Huge project so not surprised it has taken this long, what with all the other tax troubles we have had.

So what do all the Ron Haters think?

I'm bored of the whole sorry saga. We'll do a Brighton though and open up the new stadium, the season we get back into the Championship. We'll then average 14,000 every week. With 8,000 on the waiting list. Prompting immediate construction of the 4th stand. Build it and they will come!!

I had no idea that you smoked crack.

Seriously though i very much doubt ron would go to the bbc and do an interview if it were not near the mark

Tenders were in on August 1st and last only 6 months. By that we start by Feb 1st - or we go back to tender which will take at least 4 months.

The 90% Rule:

The first 90 percent of the project accounts for the first 90 percent of the development time. The remaining 10 percent of the project accounts for the other 90 percent of the development time.

i partially agree with this but roots hall is a ***t hole.

to be fair its not our beloved teams only home, albeit its the only one ive known, it will be a sad day when we leave but the future generations will want modernistic ideals ...the days of weeing up against a wall and changing ends at half time are distant memories as is charging down the steps of the old southbank, it would be nice to see us sustain quality football in my lifetime and the only option we have for that is a larger ground....:sad: :smile:

Instead of a date that we start building that never comes to pass, now its percentages 90 percent, how long will the other 10 per take. Why not just start building when he is ready,and forget the bullshite.
