Sad, sad day indeed.
Looks like Southend will enter administration this time next week ish.
It goes to show the vast gap between rich and poor. When Liverpool played Man U on sunday the two clubs had combined debts of £1 Billion. We could get wound up over £700k. That's about a month's wages for the top players in the world. The problems are many, but it would be nice if:
1) financial mismanagement didn't result in the fans getting punished
2) the official bodies and big clubs spent a bit longer looking out for the interests of football as a whole rather than trying to maximise the wealth of the richest e.g. '39th game', Atlantic League, Old Firm to England etc. etc. etc.
