    Okay so for a bit of fun and a bit of football related chat. Using your own criteria, give me a 5 aside team that you would pick. Just list the criteria you've used, e.g. former Sunderland players, a team made up of keepers only, one player only from a team etc.

    I'll start it off in honour of a couple of club legends and create a 5-aside team of Kevin's.

    GK: Kevin Pressman
    DF: Kevin Muscat
    DF/MF: Kevin Ball
    MF: Kevin De Bruyne
    FW: Kevin Phillips

    A solid keeper who can also take a mean penalty, 2 tough nuts at the back not afraid to be physical and an abundance of skill in attack.

    Team Gary Vault 108

    GK; Gary Bailey
    DF; Gary Neville
    DF; Gary Pallister
    FW; Gary Lineker
    FW; Gary Rowell

    Man U back 3, solid as owt. No midfield, just long ball it to Rowell and Lineker and score a boat load.

    1900s footballers.
    GK. Leigh Richmond Roose
    DF. C. B Fry
    FWD. Billy Meredith
    FWD. Steve Bloomer
    FWD. Vivian Woodward (29 goals in 23 games for England)

    Formation is a reference to the forward-heavy line ups of the time.

    Another from me. A team of players who have missed penalties in world cup knock out stages against Brazil.

    Baresi De Boer
    Cocu
    Platini Baggio
    No need for a keeper because that defence is impenetrable and the attack will never let you have the ball anyway!

    To compensate for having no goalkeeper, this is my team only of keepers (excluding premier league):

    Gk: Jan Oblak - the actual best keeper in the world

    DF: Manuel Neuer - the start of this movement of sweeper keepers

    MF: Jose Luis Chilavert - the solid Chilean scored over 50 goals in his career, good enough for me

    MF: Rogerio Cena - not only is he the most prolific goalscoring keeper of all time, but he's loyal as well, staying at the same club for over 20 years and playing into his 40's

    FW: Jorge Campos - not only was the little Mexican a professional striker early in his career, but he could design the team strip as well and if it's anything like his 1994 effort, he will blind the opposition!
