    Old Age Squad

    Interesting stats on this web site as originally posted by CP on Twitter - also the following statement is interesting: Southend have been the oldest team in League 1 so far and the only club to start 11 players in a match with an average age of over 30. Less than 9% of their league minutes...

    Biggest load of drivel I've ever heard

    Not sure how they got my details, but some loons have sent me an email suggesting I sign a petition to protest about there being no women (other than HM The Queen) on British bank notes. Whoever wrote this needs to get out more. "Mervyn King, the Governor of the Bank of England, has announced...

    Southend United's oldest living player

    Does anybody know who this is? Be good if he got taken to Wembley by the club. Of course, if it is Chris Barker he will likely be there in a playing capacity anyway.

    Happy Birthday to......

    Well there's a plethora of them today, but mainly to Cricko the world's oldest 29 year old. I think the 29 years he refers to are the number of telegrams he's had from the Queen. Have a great day mate, and best wishes to all the others who celebrate their birthday today. :clap:

    Oldest XI

    Not sure if this has been done before, but the talk about Christian Dailly got me thinking - how about an oldest XI to turn out for the Blues, go by their age the LAST time they played for us. GK RB LB CB - Spencer Prior (36) CB - Graham Coughlan (36) - yet to play since turning 37 CM CM RM LM...

  12. Ref Watch ....... Rotherham away

    The man in charge of tomorrow's rather daunting looking fixture is Graham Salisbury from Preston. One of the oldest and most experienced officials, the 49 year old is in his 11th season on the list. He has enjoyed a reputation as a steady journeyman official who was never going to make it to...
