A 5-a-side team is ready to play its first game at the local league on Halloween, this Monday. And, we’ve put together the perfect side to freak out the locals over a ‘friendly’ kickabout.
Do you reckon this team would be the David Moyes’ Sunderland of the local 5-a-side league, or Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City?
The unnecessarily tall goalkeeper. The former City man takes up the entire goal and can't even fit in the screen ?. Still, at least he's not a threat anywhere else on the pitch...

The player who looks to provoke a reaction in every game. An aggressive midfielder who always plays by the Sunday league cliché "Let them know you're there!". Barton applies his own rules - just ask the bookies - and looks to spoil the enjoyment of his opponents at any opportunity. Source: Irish Times
The Spaniard won't be getting Christmas cards from many defenders or goalkeepers. Absolutely terrifying, doesn't require a mask for Halloween, just a general brute really. Source: Mirror
We've got to include Captain Muppet himself in the 5-a-side team. To have the features of disappearing, makes Tim the favourite for Casper the Ghost 2.0.
So, how did their opponents fair?
Following a heavy defeat, the teams decided that this idea probably wasn’t the best. Everyone has at least one injury, as well as being completely demoralised.
After quickly gathering their stuff into the school boy Adidas and Nike bags, the opponents made a sharp exit off the premises without paying; everyone agrees to ignore any future calls from the 5-a-side centre and most importantly, never to speak of this night again.
Wish sides my 5-a-side team face, would say the same.
