Ahead of their final game of the League Two season, Southend's players were given a pre-match gee-up by none other than Jeremy Kyle, i.e, the megalomaniac host/ringleader of the scum circus that is The Jeremy Kyle Show.

Can we just point out now that Southend's manager is Phil Brown.

The talk on the stroll/waddle up Wembley Way – at least among those who hadn't had to crawl down the spine of the country in the early hours – was of the 33,000 tickets that Southend had managed to shift for their first ever final here.

Barnsley

2014-15 did not go to plan for Barnsley. Freshly relegated from the Championship and adorned with an array of shiny new signings, a promotion push was on the cards. But an unconvincing start cost Danny Wilson his job in February, and it was left to Lee Johnson to salvage things.

[T]hedismissal of Lee Clark from his last job inspired our then second most read post of all time and that he clings on for grim life at Birmingham City might seem incredible. To boot, he's been allowed to completely overhaul the squad in a ferocious frenzy of downsizing. But Birmingham International Holdings remain in charge of the second city club for the moment, with acting chairman Peter Pannu benefitting strongly from emoluments of various hues, providing therefore an illustration of the thinking behind the continuation of Clark's sinecure.

[F]inancially speaking – and the majority of us did interpret ‘trouble ahead' through a fiscal lens when discussing potential candidates – this could be a tough year for Football League clubs. With a stifling economic outlook, more pressure will be on income streams and it may very well be that a greater number of clubs risk the wrath of the tax man and the authorities still in 2013-14.

But their divisional betters from Dorset were seen off on penalties and the League campaign has started no less auspiciously – two of the favourites, Bristol Rovers and Southend have been vanquished and the performance in the latter game in particular was notable for its ease.
