There will be a lot of names in your all-time XI who write themselves in. For example those of us who were lucky enough to see Chrissy Powell wiggle it for us in his playing days :Worthy: are almost certainly going to be including him at left-back in their all-time XI.

But figuring out the second best left-back to have played for us is a lot trickier than just picking the guy who went onto play for England.

So what is your Southend United All-time 2nd XI? Who are the second best you've seen in their position? You can't include anyone from your 1st XI.

And can people guess your 1st XI from your 2nd XI?


My attempt* at a 2nd XI:

Sammy
Francis Roget Dervite N. Jones
Ling K. Jones Bailey Gower
Angell Benjamin


*I may have to change this when people list theirs and I realise who I have forgotten.

That says a lot when Clohessey , an average 4th tier Right back , gets in in the top 5

I think Clohessy, a former player of the year, was better than that - some of his link up play down the right was lovely - but I must admit I'd forgotten about our one time record signing Gary Poole (the version where he tried, rather than the trying version).

Mark Beard was a RB and a former player of the year, so that's not a major recommendation

Jeez, you will mention Mark Hone soon.
