Alphabet April Game- letter U, V, W and Z
« on: April 10, 2016, 08:01:02 PM »
Now we are safe here's a little game to keep you going for April. Each day I will post a thread for a specific letter. Your job between you is to create a 442 starting eleven made up of players who's names begin with the chosen letter. Every player must have played 1 first team appearance even if it's as a sub.

You will have 24 hours to complete the eleven and the time my thread is posted will be the time the clock starts. Some will be easy and as soon as I see a team is completed I will lock the thread and start a new letter ASAP to give you extra time for the next one.  The aim is to complete the alphabet before April ends. After 24 hours if the team isn't complete the thread is still locked and you lose that letter. If you fail to complete 3 letters you all lose. I'm feeling generous so the letters will be in order excluding U, I, Q, V, Y and Z which will come after W and be one joint team as none of them have 11 players on their own.

Obviously X is impossible so its not included. That's 20 days to complete 20 teams. And the faster you do the first 19 gives you more time to answer the multiple letter before April ends.

You can have 2 wildcards which a few of you need to agree on. These wildcards mean you can change formation twice to make completing the team easier. So try not to waste them.

New rule- you can only have 2 picks each per letter. This way it means you are relying on each other so if you have a good one don't say something obvious.  Play the game tactically. If anyone goes over their allowed guesses you lose the letter.

D- failed.

Remember 2 guesses each or you will forfeit the letter but still have to complete it to continue

An example of the flexibility. Baird could be juggled to suit from CB, RB to CM.

Once all 20 teams are up you can vote which team on paper would have been the best

Both change formations have been requested now. Good luck trying to finish this without them lol. It's gonna take some real Ali Mac/ Mike Rigg negotiations with me to juggle players secondary positions.

And it's going to take the mastermind tactics of a Lawrence Sanchez to put XI together.

As they say on Countdown,  "Consonant please Rachel"........."K"

Apologies to Barrett for missing out your picks. I'm happy to change it if anyone feels McCaree or Marshall fit in somewhere but that central midfield is strong at the minute. Bit too good to find room for Marshall?

Apologies to Ray too, there was just too many put forward this time as M is an easy one.

I refuse to apologise to FPT though. When it comes down to McCormack on the wing (he's done it occasionally) or Milsom there's only one winner. And then I had the dilemma of a back 4 losing one of those 3 legendary strikers or lose Manolev and play a back 3........exactly. I think you should apologise to me lol

N now lads. I think CMG is right. M's team would walk the championship

Which position is Les? Is he the equivalent of a fullback?

I'll take O'Driscoll. Too many O's to pick O'Hara over Ince. Tried to make it balanced. I picked your other one though Ray

Len could play full back or centre midfield I think

What about a makeshift centre half?

I think he would do a decent job there in a Aaran Hughes role

That's good enough to convince me

Oh, this thread moves at a hell of a pace, totally missed out on the M's where I realised that Dannyboi would have a problem with the surplus of favourite strikers and I note that McCormac has had to be fitted in a midfield role. Pleased to see that McBride took the centre forward spot. Also remember that Macdonald and Maybank are still there if needed.
Anyway onto the P's.
Mark (Pancho) Pearson , a striker we signed from Man U.
Martin Pike,     a left back
