We were terrible and his granddad wouldn't stop farting in the car on the way home, both Southend united and that car stunk that day.
    How bizarre - it was my 18th birthday on this very day and I also attended the match. Not a good day for birthday celebrations. I seem to recall Ian Wright and Mark Bright running our defence ragged that day.

    Another one that sticks in the craw: Southend 0-3 West Brom. Spud Taylor's first game in charge, and a match that should have promised loads with a former hero back as a boss, was doubly disappointing.
    History doesn't have to repeat itself, as we know.

    Ian Rush played and scored at Roots Hall in the 4-1 defeat in December 1979, Southend's goals were scored by Derrick Parker with a hat-trick and another by Tony Hadley in front of just 3,885 fans. Ian Rush made only 32+1substitute appearances for Chester before being sold to Liverpool for £300,000 in May 1980 he was the club's top goalscorer with 14 goals. His final appearance for Chester was against us as stated above with Chester winning 2-1 our goal being scored by Derek Spence with just 2,461 in attendance.

    Last game of the season (which we won - can't recall opposition), thought we were safe on 52 points and found out we were relegated to the 4th Division on goal difference
    Be delighted, be excited, watch Southend United

    0-0 on Boxing Day. Home against MK Dons. 2005/6? Shocking. Neither club showed any ambition.

    Certain Dean Lewington got voted MOM too

    And as Billericay Blue says, astonishing that he managed to hold on until the spring. A Friday night game against Hull was his last IIRC?

    That was also an awful game, but it had a very happy ending.

    Re-writing history for the benefit of the hapless Brian Lloyd ?

    Notts County were far from runaway leaders in 11th position. If you're looking for the worst 45 minutes that second half was probably it. We were 20th before (and after) that match. We rallied at the end of the season not least thanks to Billy Best's 11 goals in the last 8 matches to finish safely in 17th. The following season got worse (18th) before it got better !

    does anyone recognise the fans in Italy? If so I may have a video they took.
    Who's this Rorschach guy and why is he so good at drawing pictures of my Dad beating me?
