    Richard Jobson is the best loanee I can remember here (discounting players who ended up signing for us). Dervitte and Federici were class acts as well.

    I liked Lee Hodges a lot but I wonder if that was partly down to how nice it was to see a flair player like him in that Southend team. In a better team I'm not sure that Hodges would have stood out.

    Dorian Dervitte - class defender, and made Peter Clarke look good by association

    Adam Federici - always thought he was a class above us, and will look forward to seeing him in the EPL next season

    Charlie Mulgrew - sweet left foot, and will look forward to seeing him in the Champions League qualifiers next season (before Celtic get knocked out by some random team from Eastern Europe )

    Dorian Dervite, Theo Robinson and Charlie Mulgrew for me, I also find it hard to look at Freddy as anything other than "ours".

    Alan McCormack had 2 loan spells for us before signing permanently , was a cracking player at the time.

    Wasn't Collymore a loan initially?

    EDIT - and here comes YB to confirm that! Great timing.

    Our best ever loanee is surely Stan. Thankfully he became permanently ours shortly afterwards.

    On a different note, what might be interesting is an XI of loanees who looked awesome until they signed permanently.
