Seb @ Inside Left said...

Eric Black (currently Wigan asst mgr)

oh god, read the post properly would you. Please delete previous comment, it's time for my medication ...

Chris O said...

lol... that's alright, Seb! Why not open things up - let's have players past and present too! :-)

Rob Marrs said...

Ruben De La Red (Real Madrid). I realise it is overseas...


Chris O said...

I think you get bonus points for suggesting someone from overseas, Rob! I was going to trawl through the squad lists of all the continental clubs but thought better of it in the end...

In goal you could have Andy Goram (that's gaelic for Blue).

Laurent Blanc in the heart of the defence.

In midfield let's have Gareth Sage from MacWhirter Welsh League Division Two's Betws.

Up front there's Dennis Violet from the Busby Babes.

and on the subs bench with a trophy we'll have Jack Mustard - the ex-footballer and now part-time murder suspect/victim in the revamped US version of cluedo.

For Director of football how about Lex Gold (ex Rangers player, chairman of Hibs and now Chairman of the SPL)

and finally let's not forget Manuel Alfonso Heliotrope from Real Chimichanga's infamous 1947 Cucarachas Cup winning team.

Good lord, Flicktokick - that list of yours is as eclectic as it is comprehensive! Well done!

You've covered all the angles there, including the use of colour names in foreign languages (i.e. Blanc / White) which I was thinking of doing.

I suppose on that basis I could have included Cuauhtemoc Blanco too...
