I'm taking a football. Who's up for it then?
but I am really shit at football, I'm fairly fir though.
count me in!!
I'LL CUT YA
or is it one of those childhood memories where i get picked last!!
damn. i play in goal for a local team so...
1. Tom From Sparks
how many teams we gonna have?
more players and we'll just up to 11 a side...
that didn't work. i had a formation done and everything...
Too much exercise can really fuck you up.
Plenty of warming up and five minute halves, lads. You know it makes sense.
And only three subs. Who wants to referee?
I think a girl should do it so we can laugh at her interpretation of the offside rule...
i know what the offside rule is
i can't play football though, sozz
(though you lose points for not pointing out that there is no offside in a five a side game. tsk)
woo, can i borrow someone's spinto band kazoo as a whistle?
even men dont know the rule. take the linemen at tthe weekend for example
i'll score ten just like i did on that wonderous day in year 5 primary school.
rapscalion, im gonan create a neat flash site for this whole footy fest. get all the teams up there looking good!!
if you're playing when drunk.
I'll take you all on (on my own).
Well, maybe not, but have a team of four at the moment, and waiting for more recruits.
i'm in! as long as it's after hours when we're all STEAMING...
There were only 606 tickets left as of 1pm today?
when yr team is done, send details to this email:
and i'll put it in the truck footy site im making whilst i should be working!
I'm a terror so watch out!
how rapscallion just assumed that I would be in goal.
That's Tom 'the cat' Aldous's goalkeeping reputation there.
who wants to be on our team then? we need two solid citzens at the back. bamos? darcy?
I'm a mean defender!
Full five now:
1.Tom "The Cat" Aldous
2.Hannah "Hard-Fi" Humphreys
3.Rapscalion "Fasterthantheowalcottfact" Jones
5.Bobby "Thank Fuck For No Offside" George
Subs to be anounced...
really sad would be to get a strip for our team.
I think we should all play with fake moustache's on. Like in the 'good old days'.
And chefs jackets.
i so put my name down before two of those people :(
Tom 'the cat' Aldous is already between the sticks...
there needs to be 2 goal keepers.
Sorry if I was a bit harsh there, I can play outfield if you really want to play in goal.
I was assuming this thread was about forming one team though...
Surely anyway when we are there we just pick captains and then they pick a team a la playground stylee?
The captains get decided on post count or something...
but that'd be a rubbish thread. anyway. i'm picking my starting 5 now.
Ho_Fo, you in? I fancy you at the back...
cos im a free agent at the mo so will play anywhere!
Guaranteed to come on.
Are we playing the offside rule? My position on the pitch is dictated by this.
I can tell he must be good. And no, no offsides
I just need to get myself a ticket now.
You can't let the team down. Or you will die of shame.
and have a flag. which you wave. randomnly. players also get to shout at you in an effort to score "points" which in turn mean "prizes"
it's not linesman now it's assistant referee.
the assistant referee?
thats nearly the same isn't it?
this is grassroots football. we have linesmen. even if they're women. it's the way of things.
you have to be at Truck to play? Is there any way I can come along and play, and then nip off again?
If it helps, I see myself as a lanky Matt le Tiss, without the crooked nose
if not, then we can't really help...
Many people have said I am as good as this man.
who wants me on their team
The ref'd be biased...
want to be supersub?
You can play if you're on our team.
And i will not accept failure,
Nine a side. Like it.
My nine then
1 to 5 as above
7. Rock n' roll massacre
8. Bamos. <-----Doesn't know it yet
One more player needed.
Here are my "definitive rules"
6-aside. Yes, i've upped it. I can do this. I rule.
No infringement in the area.
Roll on roll off subs
i agree with those rules.
does chokeslamming count as infringement??
Outside, no holds barred.
New rule from Com Cool.
One girl on each side. If you can't get a girl to play, a bloke with pig tails in a dress will do.
like Karen O, do I count as the girl for our side?
My mum would want me to get it cut anyway.
can someone send me the rules so i can put them in the site? Com Cool, king of rules!
I'm king of rules. CC is queen. :P
and archduke of enforcement
put up team sheet, i'll pop that on aswell. but man,
The LOL Team?
Final Team Sheet:
3. Bamos <----TBC
4. Bobby George
6. Commander Cool
7. The Warn
8. Rock n' Roll Massacre
NB. All subs will play. Because CC is fat, and will need a rest.
I suggest a 1-2-2 formation.
Actually we could do with a manager, anyone willing?
My champ man success means i'm best qualified.
We are playing 1-1-3
With a winger and a support striker and a dm. Passing mixed to short, tempo quick. Tackling hard. Through balls often.
Football manager has crossed over into reality...
can someone hold up the ball??
Are you suggesting a free role for your good self then?
Just movement. I will play both wings. At once. Bobby George has the free role. And Bamos is our anchor.
Can people please from now on refer to me as The Guv'nor? Thank you.
i have to hang around near the goal and run a little bit forward sometimes.
that's my kind of football. ronnie rosenthal style.
You're the creative midfielder. Like Zidane. Or Ronaldinho.
We have BobbyGeorginho. Rapscalinho and Commander ZiCool.
Bamos is the guvnor.
They aren't as good as my nickname.
And mine has been roadtested already. And frankly my goalkeeping style is nothing like Tafferel's. I'm not dracula.
But you aren't part of the "offensive triangle".
And I'm south american so i'm allowed a silly name...
I'll start training tonight.
Training = purchasing Truck ticket.
give me pictures for each of your names, be like how they do the formations on sky!!
even though we're on the same team
thank you very much.
bring a broom and some rubber clothes.
as in me!
Unless a "big money transfer" happens. Which it won't. Because I'm poor.
i'll also provide oranges! i'll do bit more on the shite site.
I've been compared to Matt Le Tissier in my time. Basically I stand in the middle of the pitch, don't run around much, but when I have the ball at my feet I try something audacious. Every now and again it comes off and I look a hero. But mainly it doesn't and I look stupid.
Still, I'd rather be a flair player than Phil Neville.
i'll play with u. i'll fucking play with anyone!
This is good. I'm not going, but I can imagine I'm watching.
I mean you've managed on this site for long enough
a nice non-physical 5-a-side activity for those people who are planning on being too drunk to stand up for the entire weekend? 5 A Side Sunbathing or something?
It'll do you good.
i hope this actually happens
it sounds fun
I'll be on your team then!
5-a-side leisurely cider drinking perhaps?
we'll be downing it like it's 1999 and we're all 14 and we're in a park on a dodgy council estate.
Sort your teams out or i'll choose em for you!!!
If I'm needed. No one can beat me and my spaghetti legs.
That I am BETTER than David Ginola.
that I have bouncier hair.
you get your hair so bouncy?
Will there be any left in April as broke this month.. And and and... what date is Truck on?
There's few hundred left, there is a thread on the music forum.
I don't think there would be any left by April though, oh and they are around Â£40.
3. JezCC (for fitness levels alone)
8. RAZ THE TERRIER
9. wishpig? go on..
may be clutching at straws a little.
I'll be in. So long as I can wear my liverpool socks circa 1985
I already scouted him...
my allegiances may be compromised. hmm.
But you aren't on it. :P
I may purchase an alice band to bring some italian flair.
I've already confirmed an alice band to bring South American Flair.
I shall bring some Malaysian flair then.
We need workmanlike efficiency and solid reliability from you!!!
I'll have to find my bunny ears.
I probably shouldn't play though, I'll let the side down. Can I cheerlead?
Team Ping Pong need someone to shake off the hangover blues!
I'm imposing strict diet and fitness regimes.
^a dirty fib.
Hannah is. And Fishplums is a player short.
Playing is just the same as cheerleading with your feet...
you may regret this though. Ho is futball?
You'll be the opposition. LOL
I may lack skill and speed but I make up for these in physical presence, unfortunately my frustration at not being able to 'skillfully' obtain the ball often results in the ref wobbling his pea at me.
Realistical ideal position centre half/centre back....a sort of Ronald Koeman, but without the accuracy
that would be great, do you have Koeman's ability to hit an amazing free kick?
on the unofficial Twisted team. luckily, we all have the strength of ten so we're more than fine...
but two more would be useful. just in case. anyone interested?
who else is going from that lot?
me (aka baldykev)
dave (aka evergrowingbrain) & themissus
and our third player has now dropped out due to the fear. but there may be two more.
several others umm-ing and aah-ing - we shall see. the problem is the clash with benicassim - several people have already booked to go to that :(
Here's photographic evidence of my defensive skills, look how i force my man into an error. What the photo doesnt show is me getting the ball, rounding three players and chipping the keeper
the name is due to be changed soon.
fees etc with my agent, he really thinks i should be playing in Europe this season and there has been interest from Roskilde
i dont. and i cant be bothered to read this, but there really isnt a spare football field of space at truck.
or is there?
= small pitch, i'm sure there'll be room
I well want in.
i was wondering where you'd play, without pestering any bands or owt.
i'll be in if you can prize me away from the sherbet stall. MMMMM, SHERBET.
Eh?, explain yourself.
Or you talking tome somebody else?
Ignore that last comment
wut is boards?
team crumpet all the way!
I'm happy to fufill the role of Ronny Rosenthal. A fat man who misses open goals. Hell yeah!
the basic site is up. ne comments??
we'll find space!!!
where can we have the match tho? im pu
im creating sky sports esquw formations!
SOMEWHERE for the match
There must be a little bit of space *thinks* but i can't think of it yet...
...but i'm in!
I'd like to say I'm reminiscent of both Enzo Francescoli and Didier Deschamps, but in reality i'm more like Julian Dicks without the strength ie. immobile, rather shit and a complete and utter clogger.
man. julian dicks without the strength!
will anyone have me in their team? I offer no skill but lots of energy and futile closing down of players who will then just knock it past me effortlessly.
is good enough for Big Sam so it's good enough for Team Ping Pong!
this should really be 10-a-side or something :D
says nine a side, like substitutes and that
well my team of three is currently rather pony then, isn't it? right then, as executive leader i am whoring me, my mate dave and guntrip out to the highest bidder.
me: bald, vicious.
dave: tall, fast runner, ladies like him
guntrip: beautiful flowing ebony locks. combat pants useful for half time oranges.
one snack sized kit kat for all three of you to join Team Ping Pong.
half time oranges, man need to ask the manager. aka rascapilion jones
on one of the links it takes me to a music download website.
thats what you call ripping something off that im making.
thats that fixed. none of the links are working yet so peeps be patient.
... but the rest of the players are all non-DiSers. Is this still within the rules?
They are all fairly normal (obviously a little misguided)
Just expect referee bias and to lose.
We might have to up the numbers to a good ol fashioned "random-a-side".
random a side!
