    Shortest period in a job.

    What is the shortest period of time you have stayed in a job before leaving? I am six weeks in and have another six weeks of my probationary period. I took a big pay cut to move into a more interesting field and my skills are not being used. If things dont improve in the next six weeks I may...

    How do they work out the odds?

    Here's something I don't understand. Southend were 4/7 to win yesterday, Bury 4/1 yet the shortest odds on a correct score were for a 1-1 draw. How does that work?

    Dear All, Roots Hall will be visited by someone on a real world record attempt on Saturday. And it is one we can all relate to. Some of you on social media may have seen that Ed Wood is on a quest to visit all 93 (it includes Berwick) league grounds in England in the shortest possible time...

    Next Season

    I got bored so i look at all the possible trips that we could face next year and how much each different outcome could be because it's always nice to be prepared. Might take a bit. Going Down: Charlton - 39.3miles Southampton 133miles Norwich - 98.9miles Barnsley - 209miles Blackpool - 271miles...
  13. Hope Bristol Rovers aren't very tall.

    Against Leeds we probably had the shortest team ever to play for Southend. Hope Brissie don't cotton on to this and take advantage like Leeds did. Two taller full backs would help for a start.
  14. The Shortest Day

    Mid-winter to-day. Daylight lengthens from tomorrow. Spring & Endless Summer Days to look forward to. Life is Good.

    Tilly's comments on the official site...

    Just took a glance at Tilly's comments regarding today's performance and I appreciate he has to be seen to defend his players for the sake of togetherness/team spirit etc, but in saying that we had the lionshare of posession and a few good chances, I feel this is somewhat stretching the truth...

    I believe he holds the distinction for the shortest ever Southend career, as he was with the club for less than one day. In the news

    The fbm view and ratings - Leicester

    TEN MAN BLUES SNATCH LATE POINT Southend battled against all odds to claim a precious point at Roots Hall today which will assist in the fight against relegation. It may be easy for some to see this as two points dropped but given the manner of last weeks defeat, the midweek furore, the fact...

    The view from Tufnell Park...

    My neighbours will never speak to me again. When I awoke on Wednesday morning to find my tongue stuck to the roof of my mouth and an empty bottle of white wine in my bed, I was dimly aware that something incredible might have happened. It took another 30 seconds for the memories to filter back...
