Right, lets start the ball rolling. My eldest son & Daughter in Law, live in Upper Manhattan, New York, and are flying over for the game. 3,000 + miles each way.
Anyone coming from further afield?.

Gutted to not be able to come but it's my daughter's 9th birthday that weekend, but on the positive side at least I won't get branded a 'glory hunter' by my mates!

Hope everyone that goes has a fantastic time and we get the result we all want.

Why not treat her to a weekend birthday trip to London! You know you should after all these years of following Southend.

My first game of the season. Flying out of Lourdes Pyrénées Friday lunchtime.......virtually next door, in comparison to some. If I were religious I would stop off and offer a prayer or two to Bernadette yet I don't think we need devine intervention to beat Wycombe, just hard work, skill, grit, determination and a bit of luck.

I don't want to build hopes up BUT premium economy flying home Tuesday and then flying back maybe Friday 29th all for 230 quid on points.

THIS MIGHT JUST HAPPEN !!!!!

Work in London office - no problem. Juggle calls and meetings difficult but not impossible. Watch this space. And pass the tissues I think I'm dribbling.

Call yourself a supporter? Only flying Premium Economy? As you are representing the mighty Shrimpers you should at least be in in business class but First Class, like our team, would be appropriate. :winking:

Well done, have a safe journey.

Letting the side down by not chartering a private plane. It's a bloody poor show Mr Smith. Hope the champagne is warm.

Not a birthday treat as such, but I did treat our younger daughter, (now aged 21), to a trip over to London to see our game against Luton a few weeks back.

C/C bill not yet paid off,which is one reason why (sadly) I won't be at Wembley.:'(
