Sturrock: New Shrimpers boss

Sturrock: 'Loves a challenge'

An interesting session, a touch of spin as you would expect, with Tara admitting to supporting Portsmouth!

To be honest there was nothing that hasn't been covered by S24 or chatted about on the message boards in the past. Oh well, what did we expect.

It's a shame we still have one of the highest payrolls in the fourth tier with the club losing £100,000 a month.

Any local business left in Victoria Avenue will have to go before a brick can be laid for Fossets Farm but it will happen, and as Sainsbury's will not move in to Roots Hall until we're out........there will be no ground share!

At the top, Blues boss Paul Sturrock loves a challenge and that's why he's here, and be prepared for a change in the playing system for the Bury game Friday, oh dear, but he still expects a play-off position at the season's end.

It was Brady's decision to sack Luggy's former No. 2 Tommy Widdrington, but couldn't go into detail dure to legal reasons.

On the playing side; Anthony Grant is a happy bunny and will only leave if there's a lot of dosh on the table.

This is the last chance for Lee Sawyer, well as a Shrimper anyway.

Scott Spencer has not impressed Luggy, he's still in with a shout but expect him to be off if a loan deal can be worked out with another club.

Conference Premier Crawley Town doubled Josh Simpson's wages at Southend and paid his signing on fee, bless!

As for new players in, some of the present squad will have to go al la Prosser to get that wage bill down.

And for us, with a vital game on Friday evening at Roots Hall that could shape the second half of our season, we're on one of the quietest crowds Luggy has ever seen.

So we can answer that one for him ourselves in a couple of days.......
