SOUTHEND UNITED: 4th (last season 17th)

Southend were quietly confident of pushing on from their 17th place finish of last season.

Boss Steve Tilson was forced to carry out wholesale surgery on his squad after losing the likes of Leon Cort and Leon Constantine.

It paid off and Freddy Eastwood stood out with 18 goals in his first Football League season since signing from Grays.

VERDICT: A play-off place and a trip to the LDV Vans Trophy final speaks volumes for Southend's improvement.

True, if u look at is from a totally "i know nothing about the club" perspective

However it does not take a contestant of mastermind, to say that its been an improvement
