My Favourite XI - Jamie Hume

We asked the members of the forums to tell us their all-time favourite Killie XI. If you'd like to tell us about your favourite XI, simply send it to us with a wee paragraph about each of your choices, a photo of you and your Twitter handle (if you use it):

Here's Jamie Hume to take us through his world-beaters...

I'll go for a 4-4-1-1 formation for my Favourite XI.

GK: Alan Combe
For me the best all round goalkeeper we have had in my time watching Killie. Had the odd howler like every keeper but good performances far outweighed the bad.

RB: Greg Shields
Solid and reliable defender, very undervalued by some when he was here. Equally as solid when moved into centre back too.

CB: Freddie Dindeleux
The best centre back we have had in my opinion. Solid, comfortable on the ball and a real fans' favourite. Great servant for the club after arriving on a Bosman.

CB: Ray Montgomerie
Captain, leader and organiser at the back. Left everything on the pitch, if only we had more like him today.

LB: Garry Hay
Up there as my favourite Killie player ever. Hooky was small but had the heart of a lion, had his faults, but his commitment and passion were second to none. One of us!!!

RM: Steven Naismith
Naisy has probably gone on to have the best career out of Killie as anyone in recent times, pace, trickery and finishing, he had it all. Highest transfer fee received, says it all.

CM: Ian Durrant
Said to be past it when he signed for us - what a load of bollocks that was. Ran games and had a great influence on the younger players around him. Still think we would have won that cup final against Celtic if he hadn't been injured.

CM: James Fowler
You don't know what you got til it's gone. Very apt statement for the Fow, tireless midfielder who did a vast amount of the "donkey work" that let others flourish. In my team to do the same.

LM: Allan Johnston
Good manager? Not for us. Good player? Very much so. "Magic" was just that for us, very intelligent footballer who created so much for us going forward. Will remember him for his performances on the park and not in the dugout.

CAM: Alexei Eremenko
What can iI say about Losa? Hands down the best player I have seen in a Killie shirt, the season under Mixu he ran the show, pinpoint passing silky touches and a few goals. Think it will be a long time before we see class like him again at Rugby Park.

ST: Kris Boyd
Out and out goalscorer, last season he struggled but can't keep him out of my team. Best finisher i have seen in the stripes, give him the service and he generally scores.

Subs: Cammy Bell, Gordon Greer, Gary Holt, Peter Canero, Andy Mclaren, Paul Wright, Craig Dargo
