Brady: 'Financial obligations were not being met'

02 February 2012 11:40
Southend United CEO Tara Brady has left the football club, Chairman Ron Martin was quick to tell the media all was calm and the club was carrying on as normal, but are the bills going to be paid?

Brady: 'Disappointed'   Three pages of editorial in the Echo, but anything new?   Well, not much, Southend's now former Chief Executive Tara Brady is on the whole holding his council, maybe for contractual reasons, other than saying: "Financial obligations were not being met" and that he's "disappointed and does not wish to comment further" by ongoing events.   Take that how you want.

The Echo has said it 'believed Brady became frustrated after financial obligations were not met which far exceed the £150,000 mentioned so far by Ron Martin'

Now that I do believe.

Let's be straight here, Chairman Ron has twisted the truth more than once, and his flippant, 'I don't think football was as exciting to him as perhaps he first thought', is typical Martin.

Why be diplomatic when there's a fight to be had. wrote yesterday: "The future of Southend United has been called into question after a boardroom split over finances. The League Two promotion hopefuls are facing a serious challenge just one year after facing a winding up petition for unpaid taxes. Chairman Ron Martin and CEO Tara Brady are in direct conflict, disagreeing on how the club should be run. Brady is credited with transforming the club from relegation strugglers to promotion chasers, but the City businessman has been forced to act after a string of broken promises. The club sits third in the League Two table, just two points off the top, but this latest setback threatens to derail their promotion hopes and leave them in the fourth tier of English football for a third season."

So for all Uncle Ron's bullish talk about Fossetts Farm, the Shrimpers faithful have to be concerned that all the good work of the last year could be going down the pan, I wouldn't like to be a player with a big mortgage at the moment!

Tara quits:

Ron has it under control!:
