I did a bit in the Spread last night and despite England losing the thoughts of the mighty SUFC kicking off in a few weeks was no1 on the agenda for those present.
A good night was had by all , I even caught two blokes in the Gents talking about "forth-coming away trips to new places". A couple of lads hope we draw Man U in the FA Cup so they can personally thank Portugeezer Ronald O for his good work in yesterday's World Cup match.

and I got to dance with "two hot babes" who have seasos in the West for the first time.

Roll on 5th August

For some reason I wasn't entirely sure of, I was much less gutted about England going out this time than last time even though we have a better team this time round.

It could be because at least we put in an excellent performance when reduced to ten.

However, I honestly think that with the Championship season nearing it's start, I'm just too excited about the new season to be too down about England. In contrast, it wasn't quite looking quite so rosey 2 years ago.

Although I did swear a little at the tele after we went out I too was less pee'd off this time round.
In contrast to what sufcintheprem says though I feel I was less bothered because each of our performances was about as exciting as watching a mathematician calculating pi to 7000 decimal places with a pen and paper.
We have the players, but the manager was a tw&t who decided the best form of attack was defence. He has now gone, thank the Lord, but without wanting to pre judge (but I'm going to anyway) I have no faith in Steve McClaren at all.

Oh well who cares this is going to be another exciting season for the mighty Shrimpers.

I feel the same with McClaren. I just feel like he will be Sven II and he will be up against it from the start. Only way he'll get my backing is if he puts his neck on the line a little and makes some fairly big changes to the team. We were just nearly men.

If this doesn't happen, he'll be gone by the end of the season and Tilly will take over in a part time capacity....

Do you often hang about in the gents to see what you can catch 'blokes' at?

I think he was referring to losing to Portugal in Euro 2004.

Must admit I wasn't too upset this time either. Must be getting used to going out on Pens I suppose.
Can't wait for the new season.

Yes, it's all part of the job. I have even been in the Ladies a couple of times.

Ditto, I wasn't really suprised or that bothered that we went out. Individualy we have some great talented players in the England squad but as a team, with Svens management style and tactics, absolutely shocking. Truth is we didn't deserve to go any further when you take a look at some of the flair and attacking style of football played by some of the other teams, especially France.

Oh well, lifes a bitch then you marry two

I can't believe that some of you were not bothered that we went out would you have been that bothered if we had got to the final.

I was gutted we lost, but i was in the ground at the time perhaps thats why???

We have a winner!

The similarity being that two years ago we also played Portugal in the quarter finals, played half the game with ten men (although some cheeky mates of mine suggest that there was a chap called Vassell on the pitch), lost Rooney midway through and went out on penalties.

To be fair, 4 years ago, Southend weren't in a great state either!!!
