I have a problem and I think some others may have the same issue too.
I'm undecided on whether to go to Peterborough or not. I can think of many cons of going and sadly not enough pro's. So I call on fellow shrimpers to advise me of the pro's of going to said match, please help me.

One of our shorter away days, you'll see a lot of goals, we're expecting to lose so you can't be disappointed

Pro's: you were born into the brethren of shrimpers and follow regardless.

Cons: you have many more years of suffering ahead of you, this run ain't that bad....trust me!

It's hard at the moment to think yes yet a another defeat looms but be optimistic all teams have blips.You will kick yourself if we win with Tyrone getting a hattrick!!!

The expectation is that we will get stuffed but we are Southend United and the unexpected often happens.

If a couple of defeats makes you question your loyalty, don't bother. Spurs are at home to Sunderland - they'll win that - go support them.

Sorry to disappoint you my friend but just bought a ticket, don't hate me.

Fairly local game, good excuse to have a few beers with friends. Should be a good attendance and atmosphere from our fans. MrsBlue won't be attending.

Pro: Last season, we were beaten 4-2 away at Stevenage, we weren't too good that day either. Then won our next game (albeit at home) against Carlisle, 2-0.

Con: Swindon are better than Stevenage and Peterborough are better than Carlisle.

Think we'd all be happy with a point this week.

Peterborough has some decent pubs in town. If you like your ales then there is the Brewery Tap (my personal favorite pub in P'boro) or as someone mentioned earlier, Charters (the boat pub).
