Fans could relate with the Jarv’s, Gash’s etc it all felt right.   Now we are at step one then players came in from here there and everywhere.  No link up or connection with the fans.   Maybe we need to give the transition a bit longer to see if there will be a bond.

These are exactly the thoughts I'm thinking.

I'm not saying the current crop are a bunch of mercenaries, but there doesn't seem to be many who will "fight for the shirt"

Aaron Jones, when he came on yesterday acknowledged the crowd immediately and played with passion - and I didn't see that from any of the others.

I'm not saying the players play to lose, but I do question the effort to win??

As Mallard says, we loved players like Gash, Jarvis, McCauley, Fryatt, Hendo, Street - even Lee Stevenson & Dan Quigley because we felt they loved playing for the club and would always give their all.
The current crop may gel, but they have to understand they are in for a scrap this season.

I hope they have the desire for it

Always nice to have a beer with Mr Quigley,that guy managed to turn extreme hate into admiration. :cheers:

Where is he now??

Still no news ??

As per usual. I just can't understand why the Club does not want to engage with it's supporters more than it does.


Supporters....or customers??

How much would Jimmy cost in todays market, on the pitches he played on. Todays players play on bowling greens. RIP Jim, you were and are one of the greatest ever.

If Harry Kane is worth £150m....Jimmy 250 plus

Surely sponsors should be queuing up to get a piece of the televised action?

Maybe there is a credibility / trust issue with local businesses????

In the new pressurised barrels or kegs it’s impossible to add water unlike the old hogsheads barrels where you could add 2 gallons of water

And where you could also deposit the residue from the drip trays!

Mallard has shown that he doesn’t get the essence of nipsterism, or nipsters.  And others, imho, are too stuck on “beef” in positions where we need “players” !  A nipster can be any size, not merely “slight”, although good nipsters tend to be smaller ( or what the macho analysts call “ a low centre of gravity” , because saying “small” messes up their “Big and Strong” fixation.  The essence is the ability to trick their way past an opponent, and nip away over a short distance.  “Beef” or “ Strength” is often a cliche, usually spouted by those who buy the macho nonsense spoken by pundits, to make out there is something extra in the “English game”.  Players are often said to have “used their strength” , when a playback shows there was no contact whatsoever !  Salah, Mane, even Grealish are all nipsters.  Players nearly always murder beefcake !!  Glad to be of service !!

Messi, Xavi and Iniesta were / are all decent nipsters with low centres of gravity?

A47 linnet will you be there on the 7th come up and induced yourself  to me then I’ll know use behind the silly name ,apart from me and Gordon Chivers who use their real name and then being accused of being in infant school is a bit of a joke

I'm fairly sure that i know his identity and if correct, A47 linnet has made a very considerable contribution to the club going back over many years, in various capacities. By the way you can add me to your list of those who use their real name!

Easy to get confused with who is doing what at the club etc. Seems to be a very fluid situation these days.

Fluid = confused?

If price is not an issue the sky's the limit?

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

I think it’s 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.

Increasing the price of something does not always result in the desired outcome of higher revenue?

I am trying to put a positive spin on today, but I'm having my worries. In the last 24 hours I have seen the club ask for turnstile men/woman, and Extra stewards needed. This is our biggest league game since York City, (with crowds). Its saying that 1500 Southend fans are coming, are we ready? I don't think so, as for the game itself, I'm going for 2-2, and 3500 att.

Has Joe Biden been hired to organise things?

Always looking for a negative response B&G. A goal is a goal whether it be a penalty or some other way.
You’ve only just noticed ??  If we signed messi they’d  say he’s to old or  don’t score enough headers

If we had signed Messi i wonder if his commercial potential would have been fully exploited? I very much doubt it.
