Who's in your DiS 6-a-side team?


#1

Six, mate, yeah, not five.

DarwinDude (safehands goalie)
prof-k (Tony Adams-style centre-half)
bugduv (Pirlo role)
nestor (right flank, drop-of-the-shoulder Chrissy Waddle type)
andyvine (left wing pinging 'em in)
Antpocalypsenow (goalhanger)


#2

@andyvine proper loves football, don’t you mate. solid pick.


#3

yeah man, kicking the ball, scoring a point, all that


#4

He’s the thinker of the team. Great left peg, though.


#5

I’m going to have a hard time differentiating between IRL DiS football lads and the spirit of this thread, though

like, I happen to have had @Antpocalypsenow play N’Golo Kante to my Eden Hazard in an actual DiS game. but in terms of his character on here, he’s definitely a Gary Lineker-type.


#6

chucked a can of fosters at someone last time i played football. they wanted me to hit the ball with my head! ridiculous game


#7

I very much see Viney as a cross between a late 1970s John Robertson and a young Cristiano Ronaldo.

Nestor’s more of a late era Gordon Strachan.

No bugle until after we seal Le Tournoi.


#11

all the big lads (me, profk, steved, imonsafari and deadonthestairs) plus someone small like tone to be the kevin phillips to our collective niall quinns


#12

@Ruffers - the Cardiff Pavel Nedved
@Aggpass Madrid era Paul Breitner


#13

@rich-t : goalie. safe pair of hands. wingspan. I reckon he’d have the essential goalie attribute of making sure everyone was doing their job.

@colon_closed_bracket : defensive lynchpin. calm, reassuring, always got your back.

@plasticniki: is everywhere. great fitness levels.

@DarwinBabe: bit of a flair player. unpredictable, flashy, but actually hard in the tackle.

@incandenza: emotional. mercurial. on my day, I’ll win a game by myself. other times I will not do that and I’ll just go missing. flip a coin.

@Aggpass goalpoacher extroadinaire. always there for a tap-in.


#14

The press are sayin’ ‘oh, do they lack pace at the back?’ and i’m saying ‘fucking right we do, we’re giving folk what they want’. Some weeks we’ll look like Yashin, Nadal and Makelele, other weeks Burridge, Boumsong and Kleberson, but win, lose or draw people will have something to talk about on a Monday morning, and that’s what it’s all about.


#15

Used to be a keeper and central defender, so good/poor choice


#16

Definitely not wilykit. I met the lad for the first time when I invited him down to Chorlton Baths as we were down a player and were desperate.

Never have I seen such a lack of correlation between someone’s interest in football and ability at playing!

Good lad otherwise, like.


#17

I’ve got sympathy for him. A mate once invited me to his work 5-a-side at the last minute. I ran rings around him on the street but shat my pants. Started on the right wing, got moved to the back, then put in net, then subbed off without a replacement. The winning goal scored by my mate, past me. This lad was fucking useless, skinned him daily for years, but turned into Ali Daia on the big stage. Dinked one over me like Garrincha, ffs.


#18

@ma0sm in goals, reflexes of a cat
@marckee at the back, ensuring tactical rigidity
@SenorDingDong as box-to-box dynamo, until tiring approximately 15 minutes in then playing the static Prosinecki role
@Flashinglight on the wing, capable of a moment of wonder to unlock the opposition defence
@lastdino mainly to model the new kit each season
@thewarn up front - the man literally won’t stop scoring


#19

I would not have expected to be picked in this thread, I feel oddly touched to be chosen, on such a solid team too :ok_hand:

Coincidentally, I always used to play winger if we were doing football in PE lessons (read: everyone else just chased after the ball, while I used the excuse of creating an option out wide to not have to do very much, I like to think the teacher appreciated my tactical sense though).


#20

MMJ in the bags. Would love to play out but knows his best days are behind him. Hopes his tactical nous and communication will make him an asset.

DD and whiterussian at the back. Know each others games inside out, have played beside each other for years. When one drops off the other immediately tracks down the ball. Telepathic. Calming influence on the team to know the core is solid.

Bugduv and ghostpony in the middle. Committed to the game, take care of the ball and more often than not make the best decision. It’s great seeing them play against some young lads who think they are mint but are just fast. Pass it around them like it’s a training drill.

Theo up front. Cult hero, fans demanding a statue outside of prem fives for him. Not got the pace he once had, and the decision to spend a season or two in Oz did lead to speculation that he’s looking for one last payday. Class always shines through though. Player’s player.
