Colchester United are continually linked with ex players still in the game and a number of them are playing in the Premiership. So what about an old boy`s XI?
The main factors for selection are the player`s past reputation and performances for the club.
See if you agree or disagree with Vital Colchester United`s selections. If so, tell us why at the end of this article.
Feel free to comment or make other suggestions if you feel any player has been overlooked - that`s all part of the fun.
A possible Colchester United Select team made up of past CUFC players still playing today at different clubs:
Simon Brown (Brentford - U`s 1999 - 2004)
Greg Halford (Sunderland - U`s 2002 - 2007)
Wayne Brown (Leicester - U`s 2004 - 2007)
Liam Chilvers (Preston - U`s 2003 - 2006)
Joe Keith (Tilbury -U`s 1999 - 2005)
Karl Duguid (Plymouth - U`s 1996 - 2008)
Neil Danns (Palace - U`s 2004 - 2006)
Lomana LuaLua (Al-Arabi - U`s 1998 -2000)
Richard Garcia (Hull City - U`s 2004 - 2007)
Jamie Cureton (Norwich - U`s 2006 - 2007)
Chris Iwelumo (Wolves - U`s 2005 - 2007)
Sam Stckley (Port Vale U's 2002 -2006)
Garry Richards (Gilligham - U`s 2005-2007)
Craig Fagan (Hull City - U`s 2004-2005)
Alan White (Luton Town - U`s 2000 - 2004)
Gerorge Elokobi (Wolves - U`s 2004-2008)
Kevin Lisbie (Ipswich - U`s 2007-2008)
Remember- All dates are with the players, many of them first on loan, joined the club full-time. They must have signed for the U's on a permanent contract (not loan - this is a possible future idea!) and still be playing football for a club.
Credit should go to Vital Derby who inspired the original idea.
So do you think this team could be improved? Which players still playing today could come into the side?
