General Discussion / Re: The relegation Battle
« on: February 19, 2022, 03:43:51 PM »
Our Chairman took a massive gamble and failed.  Not only failed but saddled the Club with another £500k of debt. 

What a legacy.

Doverís chairman decided that the longterm future of their club was more important than trying to limp on in a relegation less season. Then decided not to over invest in this years team who seemed guaranteed to be relegated, in order to prepare for the 22/23 season in the NLS.

Ours took on a 500k loan, that the club canít afford.

A player we can afford? :dontknow:

Bambi was always good for 20 minutes of charging at tired likes.

Have to agree with Alan Sugar and Simon Jordan no place for fans on the board are these fans who join owners on boards going to contribute to transfers or financing club when itís required

The German 50%+1 model has worked pretty well over there.

:farmer: :oldman" I personally feel we need a manager with experience in the National league,who has a note book full of contacts at National league level and above, not below, we could possibly survive with a few players from lower levels, but we as a club seem to be recruiting all from lower leagues or injury prone players from our level or slightly higher. The problem as I see it is, no money, no players really up to the level, no money coming in through the turnstiles to fund better players, no real income from advertising, so realistically what experienced manager would really want too take that on . Only time will tell. :oldman" :farmer:

I think youíve explained quite eloquently why we are unlikely to get a manger experienced at this level, and will end up taking a punt on an inexperienced up and coming manager, because they are the only ones likely to be affordable and willing to take the punt and what might be seen as poisoned chalice.

Didn't they win their first game today!? How does that work then!?  :laughcry: :laughcry:

Maybe he complained about the quality of the catering.

  :dontknow:

Was probably pre-planned to give the new manager time to bed in during the international break.

Was always an entertaining day when Eze was playing; not always in a good way though.

General Discussion / Re: Southend (21st August)

So the simple question is ...Why are we the most expensive and what is the justifying logic.......

I think itís because it was decided we needed a bigger budget to compete in this league, and so prices went up to increase the budget. Basing decisions on what SC wants the club to be,  rather than what it can afford.

It is worth remembering the pricing structure last year was never really put to the test.

Currently 3 of Saturday's fixtures off with Bromley v Grimsby the latest due to Covid in the Grimsby camp.

Maybe someone can help me here;


If you have been double jabbed you don't need to self isolate if you come into contact with a positive case. If the players were all double jabbed, would this mean there would only be call offs if half a squad went down with it ? If so, why isn't this a priority ?

The double jabbed rate of under 30ís is still comparatively low, would be why these are happening.

General Discussion / Re: Season ticket
« on: August 13, 2021, 11:50:46 AM »
I just personally think SC has got his marketing all wrong. I would of considered a season ticket had it of been a couple of hundred pound or so. I pay for a Norwich season ticket too but that is premier league football so I expect the £440 a year which I pay. I personally wonít be attending many matches due to the inflated cost of everything fan related at KL Town.

Find myself thinking similar. I started following Lynn about 8 years ago when I moved to the area, as it was significantly cheaper than following my boyhood club, and meant I could walk to the ground rather than drive/train. Then I fell in love with the club, and had a season ticket for 5/6 years. Iíve stomached some of the price rises under Cleeve, and kept buying my exponentially increasing season ticket. I didnít get one last year, and at £600 for me and my 5 year old to get a seat for this season, Iíve decided against getting one this year. Will probably go to some of the Saturday games, but supporting a business (itís not a club anymore) run by someone as unsavoury and untrustworthy as Cleeve is something Iím finding difficult to reconcile.

Yes, agreed we could do with some Lynn fan ticket info....only seen the initial twitter post of over 1500 tickets sold incl. 800 for away terrace.

Based on the current numbers, does that mean there is a fair chance Southend will have more fans in than Lynn?

A regional league 2 would certainly make sense, having 5 national leagues has always seemed at least one too many for the size of clubs at these levels. This would go to 3, which should cut down on travel costs for most (though as we all know for Lynn it doesnít make much a difference).

Johnson and his entourage need to either step down or be removed.... completely out of their depth and no sense of "the greater good".

In this country, the alternative to Johnson and his crew is truly terrifying!

Doesnít need to be the other side change comes from, thereís growing back bench dissent to Johnson, and theyíre the ones who did for May. If this unlocking goes derriŤre over elbow, you could see Johnson being replaced by his own party with someone dull but fairly competent seeming to try and win back trust over a winter of restrictions, like Raab, Sunak, Clark or Leadsom. A swing back towards the centre in preparation for the next election, now that there isnít a Brexit party flanking them to the right.

And in reminding myself this is a football forum, has their been attendance figures given out for the two friendlies?

I would respectfully suggest our current predicament is not so much to do with lack of vaccine take up...which on the whole has been very high and brilliantly rolled out by the NHS...........it is more to do with putting business before health, refusing to lockdown borders before too late, funding an inadequate test and trace system (given to cronies and Tory financial supporters rather than pre existing experts in the field) and childish rhetoric from the PM giving false hope to those gullible enough to believe him. Decisions based on the science/data...my ar*e....1200 scientists from around the world currently saying Monday is reckless and unethical.

The sad irony, is that the best way to look after the economy in a pandemic, is to put health and people first !

 :clap: Spot on.

You can see it with schools. A big song and dance is being made about the number isolating as contacts, but thatís overshadowing the main story that there are more young people infected than in January, and that the age profile of those being hospitalised is decreasing this time around.
