Sky Sports have an article on which fans are the longest suffering over the last 50 years. It is an article relating to the Wembley Naff Daf, **** Poor Paint Pot, Chuck It Out or whatever it is now called match Coventry v Oxford on Sunday and refers to the long suffering Coventry fans. However, Southend get a special mention, which I have cut and pasted below. As we all know there is never a dull moment following the Shrimpers!

However, Southend fans have experienced a roller-coaster period of promotion elation and relegation heartache, hopping leagues on 17 occasions during the period - that's pain or glory every three years on average.
