    I'd completely forgot that there was still another game to go.

    I'll go for a 4-3-3 formation:

    GK: SW88 - Always there even when no one else is.

    RB: Earlsdon-Loyal-Blue - The new addition to the team. Often found turning up behind Earlsdon_Skyblue1.
    CB: Grendel - Doesn't let anyone get away with anything, but gives away a lot of needless fouls.
    CB: Nick - Often found defending things he probably shouldn't.
    LB: Martcov - Defensive and left wing.

    RDM: EarlsdonSkyblue1 - Often mistakenly classed as right wing, but generally deployed as a viscous hatchet man. Actually left footed.
    CM: Hill83 - Floating around in midfield and occasionally getting in people's faces for no reason.
    LDM: Liquid Gold - Quite often found drifting towards the left wing.

    RAM: ItaliaHorse - Good at providing end product and often on the receiving end of abuse (Jacob Murphy role).
    ST: Covcity4life - Always around and constantly getting in people's faces even when it isn't necessary.
    LAM: Clint Van Damme - Very good at being left wing.


    On the bench:

    Torchomatic - Injured.
    Blueflint - Rarely turns up to games.
    SkyBlueKid - Either suspended or having a tantrum, no one is really sure.
    Otis - No one knows where the fuck he is. Possibly in Russia...
    Shmmee - Missed training this week so sits on the bench.

    Manager: OSB
    Chairman: ovduk78

    Please feel free to make any further additions if you see fit!

    @Earlsdon_Skyblue1 not sure you'll get away with picking yourself, you have to be really good to do that like Dalglish or Strachan

    Bet he wears colourful boots and a headband too and isn't very good. Criminal.

    If we swap wings we can both drift inside and get some diagonals on the go

    Funnily enough I'm completely the opposite. Wear the most old school boots and kick the shit out of most people that come within 10 yards of me!

    You didn't say that on the team sheet. You need to replace good all-rounder with vicious hatchet man!!!

    I'm guessing Sky Blue Kid is suspended still then. He could be something if he could control that temper.

    Nah, the ref in the last game just asked him to chill out a bit but didn't even book him. He walked off the pitch and made out he was getting a lifetime ban like a queen.

    He could really make the difference if his mind is in the game. Like a cross between Denis bergkamp and mike Tyson

    Spending your Saturday nights chanting about Russel Slade in beer gardens , now spending your afternoon in work picking a first team 11 from sky blues talk forum users, this awful season really has got the better of you!!!

    It's a good job you haven't mentioned those absent and their excuses, the team sheet would be like war and peace. I can't attend either in a spectating or playing capacity because it is too far away (600 mile round trip) and I've got no boots

    39 minutes behind me on this occasion. You really need to work on that time frame if you want to keep up with the pace of the game.

    And for the 100th time, that wasn't me singing those songs!

    You 2 aren't going to be any good playing on the right side together. It'll be like watching Telfer & Salako and you won't pass it to each other

    We couldn't possibly play him against Grimsby next season. He'd spend the whole game trying to slide tackle Russell Slade rather than focusing on winning the match!

    As a "viscous" hatchet man, wouldn't EarlsdonSkyblue1 be a bit slow and ineffective?

    Actually surprisingly I'm quite quick, mainly when I've got a target to home in on and crush.

    I am only 25 though, so probably not as old as you!

    Any going just be aware:

    Around 50 Scunny “fans” caused trouble at The Bluebell after the match, according to Aidan McCartney on twitter. Events like these are creeping in as a regular thing again after matches, Fleetwood’s bus being smashed in, Bolton fans being attacked at Berkeley and now this today, not good at all.

    A group of Chesterfield fans also got involved in trouble at the train station, which resulted in some being arrested.

    Both groups should be ashamed of themselve

    I agree with this.

    If we have a manager then we should probably have our own chairman for the game too. Ideally a SISU apologist.

    Any takers on here? :D
