Five-a-side or skive-a-side?

please note this post makes reference to the Nov 21 episode on CBC

Not since England nabbed the coveted Jules Rimet Trophy in 1966 after winning the World Cup, has a nation been so captivated by a squad of elite football players at the height of their careers. The Rovers five-a-side team is ready to do battle with the Weathy Arms Wanderers (not their team name, they simply don't have a sat nav in the car).

How will the Rovers team fare?

Well, let's take a quick look at the squad.

Rob: lean, good-looking and former inmate. He learned a thing or two from his time in the exercise yard.

Chesney: Very quick in the market when selling dog accessories

Paul: If a fire breaks out during the game, he'll be very handy.

Ryan: he's already got a lot in common with some of the top disgraced players in the world: drugs.

and, of course, a last minute substitute: Steve. Don't count him out. he's wearing a headband and looks like Loverboy (towards the end of their career - ed).

Okay, we've talked talent (have we? - ed). Now let's talk strategy. I think Lloyd will probably use the patented: 1-1-1-1 formation.  Steve will bring up... er the rear. Paul in midfield and Rob and Chesney on attack. Sweeper? Steve, and only after the game is finished (someone has to clean up - ed). Striker? Rob and Steve are each capable of striking... each other.

Let the game begin.
