I was incensed to read that a certain Roy Donaughie and Ipshite say we are punching above our weight.What right have they except freedom of speech, wasnt it just a few short years ago Swansea were gighting relegation from the 2nd division into the conference.I bet their supporters then were dreaming of what could be,i bet more than one person in Wales was saying " wales should have a team in premiership" ,well guess what they look like getting a second one now in Cardiff.Why cant we live the dream its not impossible, yes it would take a lot to get their, firstly a new stadium! we have the catchment area, Give us a new Stadium , a decent team and supporters will follow. Even those that go to watch the likes of West Spam, Tottenham and Arsenal, Chelski from Southend will become converts in time.also a new Stadium ,decent team and playing style ,higher division will entice new backers. ESSEX like WALES should have a premiership club.If many of you dream the dream then its time for all those not supporting the club becoz of where they are too start supporting , then and only then can all this eventuate.But it is a realistic dream and at present My club is punching below its weight , so up yours IPSHITE AND ROY DONAUGHIE!
