David Evans wants to know what your Wolves five-a-side team would be using our current squad? Here he explains more and how you can get involved.
After the success of our #wolvesXI25 a couple of years ago, I thought I would narrow the field even more with a five-a-side team.
Most of us will have played five a side football. But, if you were to put together a five-a-side team comprised of the current Wolves squad, who would make the grade?
Imagine the scene. It’s Monday night, pouring it down at ‘Goals’ and you’re re-enacting a real life version of Football Manager. You have your tracksuit on, bovril ready and your assistant (your mate Gaz) at your side.
Who would you pick?
Before you pick your team, here are the rules:
- A standard diamond formation as shown below. No amendments.
- Only one defender, two midfielders and one striker.
- Players chosen must play in their natural role.
- For example, Afobe would only be a striker, not a midfielder.
Now you know the rules, here is who I have gone with…
Why have I picked these individuals I hear you cry?
Well first up is Ikeme in goal. Pretty standard.
Stearman is my lone defender. Experienced and puts his head on the line. He will seriously throw his body in front of an empty goal, like a salmon. Just like he did against Bournemouth at Molineux last season.
MacDonald is on the left. Contract aside, he is probably our best midfielder. K-Mac will mop up play or retrieve the ball from Stearman on the halfway line. Then either chip the ball direct to Dicko or curl the ball down the wing to Henry.
Henry on the right. The former Millwall man will tear down the right wing but also cut inside for long range bullet goals.
Dicko as the lone striker. Nouha can run the channel and hold the ball up, allowing Henry and MacDonald to come into play. Or he can latch onto near goal tap in’s from balls fed into him across the box from Henry.
So, there is my five-a-side team and the rules.
The questions is, what would your current Wolves five-a-side team be?
