Well done to them. They have done their best to blow promotion to League One on numerous occasions over the last few years, plus several times this season. But they've finally got back into League One and I for one look forward to welcoming them next season. I like visiting Southend, mostly because of the play off semi final win 3 years ago. But all in all, its just a more preferable trip to Wycombe.

Also pleased the division has gained Phil Brown, bit of a knob, but he is a character. So, welcome Southend. Colchester, Millwall and Gillingham fans should all be happy with that i'd imagine?

Gutted for the Vale legend that is Gareth Ainsworth and a trip to Southend is about as appealing as sticking pins in your eyes but well done to them.

Wycombe is always a shit day out, Southend at least has the potential to be a good one. However, our game with them WILL be midweek, or boxing day with no trains. Prove me wrong fixture computer!

Pleased for Southend anyway due to their ex-Gills contingent.

Pleased by this. Not too much agin Wycombe (and as a connoisseur of spaniels' ears, that stripper pub may be due a visit).

But. ...

...the first time I ever played space invaders was in The Kursaal.

First game of next season at der Roothallstadion, please!

Congrats Southend, can't remember,and I'm old, the last time we played you in a league game.

Being from Norfolk a nice easy way day for me and the East Anglian branch of the skyblue army,
As a footnote we have four members who go to games regularly

wasn't that long ago, 2006/07 season in Championship - I remember the game at Roots Hall being a cracker, ended 3-2 to Coventry, then we played pretty well at the Ricoh in a 1-1 draw, that was just after Christmas.

Good to be back in Division 3, hello Colchester.

Happy with Sarfend and now the toll booths at the Dartford Crossing have gone we should be able to make the ubiquitous evening kick-off in good order. Glad it's not Wycombe shit ground in the arse end of arse ends and they seem to have the indian sign over us in recent seasons decent kit though..

Shite. Can we hand 6 points to Southend now and save all the effort/money/travelling. Feel for the Wycombe fans.

Fred returns from his loan spell and thus myinterest in Wycombe is ended. Southend a much preferable alternative.

Boxing day is fucking simple anyway. Millwall vs Gills and Southend vs Colchester. All the other clubs are within a stones throw of each other!

would be utterly shocked if they put Southend-Colchester games on holiday days or weekday night, far too much aggro at them. Very likely to be 12pm ko on random Saturdays.
It's more likely Millwall v Southend and Gillingham v Colchester are the boxing day games.

Yeah other than Southend-Colchester any other permutations are possible. Of course knowing the football league we'll all be up in the midlands on boxing day instead.
