So the Club are re-branding the 110 Club as The Captains Suite and will theme it around five iconic captains of the Club's past and want the fans to chose who those five are. Firstly, I love this sort of stuff - I'm all for the greats of the clubs past (and Kevin Maher) being honoured and remembered in any fashion. Secondly, I'd be keen to hear from some of the more seasoned posters here about some of these names and why they deserve my vote.

You assume Maher & Barrett are locks for this. I was surprised/disappointed that Chris Powell didn't make the cut - he was captain when I first started going every week and is therefore the first person I associate with the position Southend captain. But I don't know a huge amount about some of the older names on the list.

The options are:
Kevin Maher
Paul Clark
Alan Moody
Adam Barrett
Dave Cusack
Joe Jacques
Jimmy McAlinden
George Molyneaux
Peter Watson
Peter Clarke

They look like they were scraping the bottom of the barrel with Peter Clarke, IMO.
