'Football' Wins

Right, so soccer wait, 'football' wins the poll.


A significant win over the others sports. Perhaps if I added some other sports the results would be different.

Let???s say that you are a new manager entering the world of 'Football', and are asked to construct a new squad. You have unrestricted funds. Who would you have on your squad and what formation would you use?

Plus what would you call your team?




Sarah, I won???t be surprised if Frank Lampard is your starting midfielder.

I would use a Pro-Set I formation on offense with multiple shifts.
On defense I would use a 4-3.
Oops...wrong "football".

I would call my team Tunbridge Wells Spa's and I would have a bunch of local team players then work my way up and buy players from the division above with pumping in billions into the team at the same team.

I would have 4-4-2 whilt playing the offside trap and build a decent stadium

Grimsby are sponsored by Youngs? I had Youngs Cod last night

Manager: Arsene Wenger

Goalkeeper: Iker Casillas

Forwards: Thierry Henry, Jose Antonio Reyes, Andriy Shevchenko, Landon Donovan

Midfielders: Patrick Vieira, Pavel Nedved, Cesc Fabregas, Kaka, Ronaldinho, Zinedine Zidane

Backs: Sol Campbell, John Terry, Ashley Cole, Alessandro Nesta, Lilian Thuram, Paulo Ferreira

I'd probably have a traditional 4-4-2, with Henry and Shevchenko up front, Vieira and Zidane in the middle, Nedved and Ronaldinho on the wings, Campbell, Ferreira, Cole, and Nesta the back four. Of course, with Wenger, Henry would probably play back on the left wing, with Andriy the main striker, and Nedved and Ronaldinho would run through the middle.

Well, you DID ask me to make my fantasy team.

It may have even been Juventus:


Or, it may have been a zebra:


Was it a zebra, Brad?

It had a British accent and was holding a half yard of Newcastle with it's opposable thumb equipped hands...so I'm pretty sure it wasn't a zebra.
But thanks for asking.

Saw a bunch of those.

I definitely saw the Newcastle one, but I seem to remember the "Young's" label on a shirt. It was a haze of socc...**ow** football jerseys, pasty skin and those charming capri? pants the English gents are so fond of.

Too lazy and uneducated to think about football, so I'll just have the whole Arsenal team and chuck Van Nisterooy from Man Utd over (No, I'm not exchanging for Henry).
