The Emperor's new clothes

Hong Kong Blue

Slight twist on DtS's excellent thread, as suggested by Firestorm.

His nominations were Shane Westley and John Keeley.

My nominations would be:

Flahavan - I see a midget shotstopper who is dodgy at crosses; everyone else sees the best keeper in the division. (although at the moment he's playing his best football of his Southend career)

Julian Hails - I saw a lightweight, thunderbird wannabe, not good enough to be a winger so hidden away at right-back; everyone else sees player of the year.

Keith Dublin - I saw a player responsible for conceding approximately 80 goals a season in all but one of his seasons at Roots Hall; others saw a player good enough to play league football.

Every youth team product since approximately 1991 (except Leo Roget and Leon Johnson) - I see a lightweight teenage with a fairly decent touch, but nothing special and far too easily knocked off the ball; everyone else sees a future England international.

Drewe Broughton - I saw a lumbering centre forward with the touch of a rapist and the mobility of an 80 year old without their mobility scooter; everyone else sees a Southend legend.

So what are your nominations. Does anyone not rate Freddy, did anyone think Brett was a donkey and Crown and Cadette overrated?
