The Chameleon
Jul 5, 2004
Well, it's been a very long time indeed. Not long enough unfortunately, and to my amazement, my SZ account is still active. Thanks Mods. You could have done me a favour and binned it!!

So, I have found something, no. I have found many things in life, that happen on a Saturday afternoon. Southend United, is no longer one of them. It's fantastic.

I am now at the stage, that I genuinely am suprised, everytime there's a home game. As I have completely shut myself off from SUFC, and actually, nearly football as a whole.

What are the crowds like these days? I'm assuming financial troubles are still overhanging your club?

I never thought it was going to be easy leaving SUFC, but I am suprised, and a little frightened how easy it actually was. Something that lasted 21 years of my life, gone, finished, game over.

Now, I haven't read these boards in a helluva long time. I'm assuming there is still the anti-ron's , and those who don't profess to like him, but are willing to criticise him??

Has the AGM been held? If it has, why did it take so long? Have your club not been in breach of anything not having one in time??

I am genuinely interested to see what the answers are, as I have no clue, and no desire to find out myself.

Hopefully, one day - I may discover SUFC again, unlikely. I don't even hate Ron Martin anymore, It was all too much effort and aggrevation (mainly from fellow supporters)

What direction is the club going? I just looked, and you seemed to be mid table (ish) wasn't their promises of play off's this year?


I have discovered happiness, and it definitely isn't SUFC. I would think I am probably not the only one either to have found this new life. In fact, I reckon 3 or 4 thousand others have too.
