There's probably a bit more leeway here... so, players who we "discovered", so to speak.

They could be kids through the academy that went on to be big name players, youngsters who blossomed after they left us or just players who were poor/average until they came into their own having experienced the Southend coaching phenomenon...



Keeper ? Royce maybe? Federici?

Back four
Simon Francis
George Friend
Charlie Mulgrew




Midfield
Hal Robson-Kanu
Stuart O'Keefe ? (I'm clearly struggling now...)
Peter Taylor
Junior Stanislas


Strikers
Stan Collymore
Britt Assombalonga

I always admire those ones who take the knock of being let go by a team, drop down and then come back stronger to end up at an even higher level.

Powell, Prior and Austin all went onto substantial top flight careers but as they are in my all-time XI it doesn’t seem right to include them or the likes of Royce and Collymore in this XI - I’d go with Federici and Tommy Mooney instead

Eastwood again, though to be fair he didn't do much at either Wolves or Coventry. Played for Wales though.

Graeme Jones was with us 2002-2003 , knowing full well his legs had gone + struggling to get in our team , started helping out with coaching duties. He obviously learnt well from all Rob Newman's mistakes !!!!

He is now Roberto Martinez's assistant for Belgium. So the boy done good.

He's more a candidate for the "Past their Prime XI"!
