I remember Alf Smirk once telling me that he couln't understand how Bobby Kellard or Ray Smith had ever made the grade as professional footballers.
So who's your choice?

I couldn't understand how someone who drank as much as Alf Smirk made the grade as a professional journalist.

Bobby Kellard was a fine player who played for England youth and had a good career for a number of clubs, most better than Southend. Injury brought his professional career to an end but I did referee a few of his amateur games when he retired and he could certainly still hit a ball very hard with a good degree of precision.

Ray Smith was an effective lower division journeyman footballer and I still recall vividly watching him get a hatful of goals against us for Wrexham at the Racecourse one evening.

Alf Smirk was a fool.

Why is poor Luke Prosser the only one there shown by his surname? Some very odd selections down at the bottom of that list.

As it goes, I'd have thought Michael Ricketts was a shoe-in here!
