Just thought would be interesting who to put in our 5 a side team of one existed. I'm assuming all are available.
Here's mine ....
Seaden - can't see ox's best attributes being of use!. No long kicks or height needed, tho he is a good blocker and you don't need bravery in 5 a side, but see seaden as more mobile and quicker
K Taylor - good control and sees passes, can imagine his fluid style on a small pitch, with quick zippy passing
Jd - comfortable close control and quite quick feet and loves a one two. Good engine for getting around and can do free kicks as well getting stuck in
Oly - good trickery and makes shooting chances. Feel would score lots in 5 a side. Bit worried about the first touch tho
H-K - windy runs into that golden left foot. Evades a tackle and looks very balanced and mobile
Sub - Dieng. Just cos he could play some great through balls

Ox
Macca
Egbri, Taylor
Akinola

Macca at the back to just clatter/wipeout/scare the **** out of anyone who gets that close to the goal. Egbri zipping about like a little terrier, Taylor popping balls through and Akinola as the fox in the box.

Can't believe people wouldn't want ANG and (Massimo aside) Elvis in their 5-a-side teams.

Oxley
Bwomono - has the engine to get up and down and vastly underrated on the ball
K Taylor - links together play and pick a pass
Nathaniel-George- can glide past players like they aren't there and retains possession well
Akinola - skilful forward who can work in tight

Come on one of you clever tech persons, add a poll of selection to the thread.
My guess is Akinola and Eggers will be 90% of choice.

As brilliantly as Macca has done in the first XI , I fear in a fast paced 5 a-side , he’d be blowing pretty hard after a short time.

Surely Freddy gets ahead of Stan in a 5 a side.

Agreed.

Stan for 11 v11 but Freddy for 5-a-side. Stanley needed space to work in and to stretch his legs. Knocking the ball 15 yards past the defender and outsprinting him isn't going to work in 5 a side as he'd run out of pitch. So many of Stan's goals were from outside of the area. That doesn't translate well to 5-a-side whereas Freddy's quick feet shuffling the ball and shooting early does.

One of Freddy's best attributes was his ability to shift the ball to create space for a shot....Ideal for 5 a side.
