Now isnít that more like it.   Hopefully the position is already filled and the club can maximise its potential.

Then we need a press officer.  One that has the experience.  Need to cover single points of failure to make chances seamless.

Fail to prepare, prepare to fail and all that.

How many so called commercial Managers have we had ? A good few I would say in SCís time with the Club.   To keep doing the same thing and expecting a different result is crazy.

Put a package together to attract the right person and the applicants will be there.  Pl55 about with the same MO and it wonít work.  History tells us that.

As for the media side. Again put a package together to attract a Greg Plummer a Chris Lakey, the guy who does the YLP now.  Have we done that ?  I understand that J Heaphy has been handed the role.   Again why are we not getting people who know the job to do the job. Nothing against Heaphy but this looks another back scratching from within the Club.  Was the job advertised or was it just handed out to someone who is there hanging around the place ?

It seems all can see the issues at the Club but the only person who has it within their power to do something about it doesnít seem bothered.

Please SC start getting some round pegs in some round holes.  You have far better qualified people at your finger tips to carry out these jobs rather than just hand them out to people who just happen to be floating around the club making all the right noises.

Good to see you back posting Rod.  Missed ya.

Just had a phone call from a long term Sponsor at the Club.   The suspicion that many had are true re-Mark Hearle.  He has indeed left the club.   

Now will the Club go down the route of employing the staff who are the best qualified person (S) for the job and not just grab at someone who is handy and will work for peanuts  but are so obviously not the right person for the job.

This is Step 5 of the best Football Structure in the world and as such demands a 100% professional approach.   We have gone full time in terms of playing side yet we still seem to be very hesitant about employing full time staff behind the scenes.

Prepare to be underwhelmed, well at least partly.

As a one man band I do wonder how much advise SC takes from the people around him?.
Mind they all seem to have remained quite loyal to him. So he canít be all bad.

How long before SC comes out with use it or lose it story.  Well not for 12 weeks I guess. 

Letís hope he has gauged the mood of the fans correctly in setting admission at such a high level.  If he gets it wrong has he the funds to support it ?

Why not treat your employees or invite some important clients and sponsor our first game of the season against
 - it will be an electric atmosphere with the return of fans and Southendís first ever game in non-league.  A historic moment and one to relax and enjoy

There we go.  Point in case

Surely the Club can be more professional than this.  A random Tweet to try and grab a match day sponsor for the opening day of the season against a relegated League Club.

Come on SC you are better than this.

I can think back at the number of times Tony M has posted on here about the Non Playing side not keeping pace with IC and the playing side.

Today as we look from the outside in the gap looks massive.

Canít argue with that BlueBoy.   Hopefully Mark Hearle did a lot of the Commercial side selling prior to him quitting the job.

B&G..... no media coverage seems to be coming from Mark Hearle.  Maybe he has left the club and is gainfully employed elsewhere.?

12 week ban and a fine ?   FA are certainly hitting these Social Media offences hard.

Sounds a positive meeting Malc.  You must be pleased with that start you have made in your role.

Any chance of posting the link for people to join ?  Iím sure it would Ďdrum upí a bit of business for the FOTL.    Are you still trading using that name or have you managed to change it ?

Hopefully the job of CM is being advertised to get the right candidates applying.  Rather than going for the easy option of giving the position to someone because they handy but maybe not suited with that particular role.

As for the new Coach, maybe the right person just isnít available at the moment and IC would rather get the right man than someone who was Ďhandyí

GS I said you MAY find it acceptable.  Only you know the answer to that one.  Then again you MAY NOT find it acceptable.  Again only you know that.

The pricing structure last season never got tested.  ( well it did for the odd game in front of low crowd numbers).   

This season it will hopefully get tested.  The proof of the pudding will be in the eating.  Letís hope SC has at least got this one right.   The alternative doesnít bare thinking about.

You may well find it acceptable  for the Chairman of a top Non League Football club to tweet those kind of messages over a 5 year period, others may not.   Not like it was a one off.
