Fryatt bagged the first from the penalty spot and then headed home a second to spark celebrations from the 2,141 travelling fans.

Southend created the better chances either side of half-time, but it was Leicester who broke the deadlock in the 60th minute when referee Clive Penton awarded a penalty for handball against Simon Francis.

Fryatt confidently fired his spot-kick low to the right, with Southend goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall diving the opposite direction, although Fryatt was booked for over-celebrating his 30th goal of the season.

And Fryatt ensured City took the title in the 69th minute when Lloyd Dyer's curling free-kick from the right bounced back off the crossbar and the striker headed home from close range.

The Shrimpers' best opportunities came through Theo Robinson's 20-yard effort which a diving David Stockwell turned around the post in the first half, before blasting the ball against the crossbar after the break.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.

That's Why We Didn't Want Jose At United

There is plenty of reaction to Mourinho's antics (Isn't that exactly what he wanted?) plus thoughts on Connor Wickham, Fabio Borini, beach balls and Tim Sherwood...
