Worst moments as Shrimpers

Obviously that goal-kick routine is right up (down?) there but what other classic Southend moments are there?

The free-kick routine during the Peter Taylor era when two players ran into each other and Watford broke away and scored (was that the full-back playing up front who scored a hattrick as well?)

Adam Barrett in the Col Ewe sand pit which summed up the end of the Tilly era

Mel Capelton picking up the back pass at the tail end of the Alvin Martin era

2-0 up and cruising v Oxford, Leo Roget gets sent off for looking like Jerone Boere and we collapse to a 2-2 draw and get relegated

Kevin Maher trying to professional foul the Boston/Darlington player clean through on the half way line and missing (was that under Little or Wignall?)
