The future of the club


Life President
Jan 21, 2007
After today's events at the court. I'd be interested to hear what people's honest thoughts are on our future.

I'm not sure where we go after today. We are so wide of the mark of what is required financially to get back on track.

We now have no means of income (ie) no gate receipts and no assets. Doesn't look like changing anytime soon.

We are playing kids who are out of their depth and will more than likely to get beat heavily most weeks.

We do not have planning that will undoubtedly release funds and have not submitted the planning and will probably not get any green lights this year.

I can't see Ron getting us out of this. What does that mean?

Well he either sells the club. Unlikely

He invites a business partner to stabilise the clubs finances. He is to pig headed potentially.

We get placed into administration and receive a 12 point penalty. We may get a new owner, although not a given and will undoubtedly be non league.

We get wound up and southend United cease to exist. The fans would have to start the club again.

This is the most worried I've ever been before, purely because the fans can't get to games to boost finances and also because all dialogue between the fans and Ron is non existent
