First XI

Hi all after a couple of years just reading the zone i thought id take the plunge. Been following the blues since the late 60s in the days of the mighty Billy Best who is still my favourite ever player and have seen it all in that time. Can honestly say ive made some great mates in that time and have passed the baton on by dragging along both my sons and my nephew andy urry . If i had to pick out highlights i would have to include promotion at peterborough in 89 90,ditto play off final at cardiff and swansea the year after and the best ever day out donny away when we lost 5 1 and sang our hearts out. As for low points where do i start ,how about going to every game in both ldv runs and then booking holidays up for both finals now that takes some doing.Can also remember going to gillingham a few years back and after watching 89 mins of dross with us trailing 1 0 i turned to the late Paul Holland and said ive had enough of this, if wasnt until i was nearly home i found out id missed us score twice in injury time and a punch up.Still these things are what make us support southend united cheers
