|Shrimpers to be potted by the Super U's at the JSCS|
at 09:07 22 Apr 2021
Interesting post match comments by Phil Brown, stating that the U’s surprised them by not playing from the back, being one of the dangers of changing manager with games running out.
Wayne Brown changed the style when becoming the interim from Steven Ball, so not a sudden change for the Essex derby. Let’s not forget this game was played between the 91st - 90th position teams at the time, whilst sad to see Halford & White on the pitch for the opposition, not one of the away side would have got in a combined Xl.
So, back to the future, still three to play and a strong finish is still required against clubs at the top end of the table, and should go along away in the Chairman’s thinking of the managership and not just the to home bankers just played.

Sadly passed away in January .
Signed on a free from Watford in the mid 70’s, played over hundred games for the U’s and always went unnoticed in his left back role due to his consistency. Featured in the promotion winning team of 1976.

The blueprint years ago was to have five premium earners/ players and then the young and academy players making up the squad , which seems to be the case.
Unfortunately this present season the premium earners have been ineffective or injured . Most have contracts now to be discontinued, so suggest revise to a more standard basic plus performance related bonus and see who gets out of the door fast enough , has if the case this season most would be on the poverty line god forbid.
The chairman has one job opportunity in the FITC scheme, at 20k plus company van and mobile if any are interested .

U’s feature 29mins in, was hoping for some 1970s adverts .
Yes, needed to win to get promoted. Nearly 9k crowd with large away following. I was present in the bar side that hot ,bright day.
Bradford had in there side centre forward Bernie Wright, one of the top scorers in the division that season. The bearded striker missed a host of chances throughout the game, ensuring a U’s victory.
Entertainment abound in those days watching Gough , Garwood ,Allison score for fun .

|Tisdale is number two|
at 20:19 1 Apr 2021
Tisdale has the perfect CV. Managed a similar size club and successful bringing youth players through, knowledge of the lower levels, and play to the profile which the Chairman requires.
Would be interesting to know how much it is costing for effectively at present, a two month contract, if successful priceless to the status of the club.
at 11:28 1 Apr 2021
Has extra revenue, the club is considering fans will be invited to do pre match team talk on zoom , half times will also be available at extra cost. A list of banded swear words will be issued after signing relevant T & C ‘s , but however if then be used the first one will be free, then doubled will be charged each time used .
It is considered this new service could raise enough monies to fund a bid for Harry Kane .
