  1. The Shrimpers are my local club and are unfortunately a complete basket case. Yesterday’s game was halted for 8 minutes as fans protested on the pitch against the current owner Ron Martin, the second pitch invasion in consecutive matches. So many problems off the pitch, echoes of the blue few with, in this case Sainsbury’s pulling out of a proposed ground purchase just over 10 years ago. It’s been a downward spiral for years and although hopeful I’m not confident that the future bodes well for this well loved club. I was told there were more than 6000 there yesterday which shows great support for a National League team.
  2. Jimmy Greaves was in my mind the greatest English footballer of all time. I believe that the only reason he is not held in greater esteem is because he was injured and missed the 1966 World Cup Final. He was a gent off the field and I had the pleasure of meeting him in the mid 80’s when he did the end of season medal presentations for my sons local team. He also made a joke when presenting a medal to my son ‘Bobby Smith’ whose namesake of course was Greaves striking partner at Spurs for many years. RIP Jimmy!
