First time I've ever done a poll, so I don't know how it's going to work out.
The days are getting shorter and we're on the cusp of entering December, not unfortunately the most fruitful time for Southend United as collecting points goes, particularly in recent times.

season 2008-9 5 league games........3 points

season 2007-8 6 league games........7 points

season 2006-7 6 league games........6 points

So with our present squad and hitting the month running with games against Norwich and Charlton plus Christmas crackers against Ewes and Orient...........just how many points are we going to get from our next six matches?

H Norwich
A Charlton
H Hartlepool
A Exeter
H Colchester
A Orient

Exeter - Win
Colchester - Draw (:'()
Orient - Win
That's a bit optimisitic I'd say but that'd give us a maximum of 11 which would be impressive!

When you consider that Jesus was born in December and he died for our sins it doesn't seem pointless to me.

I for one am going to show my respect by getting ******ed on advocaat and I know he will be up there getting ripped to the tits before the Bond film has even started.

4 for me. orient win exeter draw

Watch Col Ewe crumble under the might of the Blues, Watch the 'O's quiver at the very mention of our name. The monkeyhangers can be undone, Exeter should be as easy as Tranmere (mmm) Norwich and Charlton we should/could get a point from each. Oh Ok, so 4 points it is then. UTB

At first glance I can see four draws out of the six but as we haven't drawn for eleven matches perhaps I should revise my prediction. Following a very 'drawful' start to the season our last one pointer was back on the 11th September against Leeds. Pity that with our injuries suspension and tiny squad, we start with two really difficult matches.
NORWICH: Their away form is 3 3 3 and I was initially tempted to go for
a draw. However, without Grant and our defense still getting
to know each other, I fear they may just edge it.
CHARLTON: Even with Grant back........you've really got to be a SUPER
optimist to believe we will pick up anything here. They are
unbeaten at home and have only dropped two points in
nine matches.
HARTLEPOOL: Although they are not that bad on the road (3 3 3), you
feel that three points are essential here.
EXETER: About time we got something on the road and as Exeter's
home form is (3 5 1), I'll go for our first draw.
COLCHESTER: Team should have gelled.......Christmas cracker with points
shared.
ORIENT: Our first away win since...............................

Eight points in December..........could be worse ........would keep us mid table.

I think we will win the home games and lose the away one's.

The way we are playing on the road now reminds me of the 90's and early 00's where we would go 15-20 games without an away win, as standard.

Think come the window we could do worse than to go down the First alss Window route - where we pay for the front and get the back done free (Just the midfield to sort out then).
