Essex and drugs at Wembley...
Good footballing day for Essex on Saturday. The late Ian Dury would have been very proud of this banner at the Play-off Final between West Ham and Blackpool, possibly made by some Billericay Dickies and referencing Dury's Sex and Drugs And Rock 'n' Roll single. Oi! Oi! While in the Champions League Final God's own county even received a mention. As Frank Lampard and John Terry went up to receive the trophy Clive Tyldesley commented that they were both "men of Essex".
