Remember the dark days of 2009 when the Cherries were perilously close to saying goodbye to league football. In some way we miss those days.

Plus, we never tire of mentioning Supa Fletch’s goal against Grimsby. While we may be in the Championship we still look to League One and League Two. We have adopted Northampton Town as our other team to follow, but we can tell you they ain,t going to win the league, so who is?

We are a third of the way through the 2013/14 season in League 2 and the league is finally starting to settle. Many of the bookmakers favourites are well placed at the top end of the table. Southend are looking in a promising position early season and at 4/1 odds of promotion look like they could bring in a nice little return. But what about the others in and around Southend?

After being relegated last season, managerless Scunthorpe currently sit outside the play-offs. Perhaps, a new manager will boost there odds from 10/3. Currently top of the pile are Oxford United who are 5/4 with the bookies to go up this season. Given the 4 potential promotion slots there is a good chance of this returning some money. The bookmakers clear favourites for promotion are chesterfield (2/5), who are hot on the tails of Oxford.

With winnable games coming up against Portsmouth and Cheltenham it’s a great chance for Southend to push on up the league and really get in amongst the league favourites before the tough Christmas period.

Given how difficult it can be to pick a winner this season you may have a better chance of winning big money if you play Gaming Club casino games like Game On.

After all, the big jackpot with this three-reel football-themed slot is a healthy $10,000 – which you will struggle to match with a League 2 title bet. This is hardly the only reason to try out this video slot though, as it has one of the most inventive takes on the football theme you can find – imagining a world where football is played by different species from the animal kingdom! You will find a host of different animal players on the reels, and the presence of a wild icon amongst them means that the payout odds are firmly in your favour. All this ensures that Game On is the Lionel Messi of football casino games.
