Our first tie of the Battle of Southend's Greatest Players (pre-1980) pits two internationals who played for the same country and I think both played for the club in the 1950s. They may have even been team-mates.

So what made Jimmy McAlinden and Sammy McCrory so great?

What memories do people have of these two? Any good stories? What more modern players would you compare them to?

I'll give you 24 hours or so, to state your cases, then add a poll.
