As we enter the Festive season we have come up with a 5 a side team that would pick up maximum points as games come thick and fast and the Arctic weather fills the stadiums around the country…
Keeper- Pepe Reindeer
Poor Pepe has been on Santa’s naughty list since he was in his mid 20’s. Every year he asks for the same present, but never get’s it- Some hair to go on that Christmas bauble-like head of his.
Festive Fact: He’s won 2 Euro’s and a World Cup, but he’s never won a family game of Scrabble on Christmas Day
Defence- Sleighton Baines
The left back whips in more crosses than a multi pack of hot cross buns on an average day in the Premiership.
Festive Fact: In December 2010, Baines started his own music blog on the Everton website, listing Bob Dylan, the Beatles, Pink Flloyd, the Arctic Monkeys and Paul Weller as his faves. #Indie
Defence- Two Skrtel Doves
The Slovakian is as good in defence as he is in attack and has something Terry Butcher’esque about him. He was the Premier League’s top scoring defender last season.
Festive fact- Skrtel’s Christmas list this year included an injury free Sturridge, Luis Suarez and, well… Anything to put in goal that’s not mignolet!
Midfield- Five Gold Frings
With flowing locks almost as perfect as Jesus Christ himself, the World Cup and Euro’s runner played 79 for his country, scoring 10 goals; including his screamer againt Costa Rica in the 2006 World Cup opener.
Festive Fact: Frings is, in fact, no relation to Jesus Christ, Moses, Mel Gibson or any other biblical figure.
Striker- Edin Dzekorations
The forward has won the Bosnian Footballer of the year three years in a row and holds an impressive goals ratio scoring 38 in 69 games for his country.
Festive Fact: the 6″4 giant always puts on the star at the top of the tree, and in 2012 he became the all tome top scoring Bosnian.
Manager- Joachim Snow
The World Cup winning genius has taken Germany to at least 3rd place in the last 4 major tournaments and being from Germany, he’s sure to love a Christmas market or two.
