Stella wanted to put together a powerhouse five-a-side football team for a pub-versus-pub battle with her nemesis at the Weatherfield Arms. Unfortunately, not even Sir Alex Ferguson could salvage a winning team from this mini-band of non fit misfits. The squad (and I use the term loosely) included Rob from Underworld, Chesney from the market, Paul the Fireman, Ryan the son of Michelle and last minute addition (you mean subtraction - ed) Steve from Streetcars.
Long story short: they lost.

On the Fifth Day of Corrie Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Five a side Foot-ball
Four Untimely Deaths
Three Flying Ducks
A Polish Hip for Mrs. Blanche Hunt
Gotta a certain ring to it, don't you think?
Tomorrow: On the Sixth Day of Corrie Christmas
