Movie Monster Edition
Since you’re likely still recovering from your Halloween hangover (be it candy-induced or otherwise), we thought it’d be a good time to stick with the scary theme and bring you our own monstrous line-up. We figure a team like this ought to be a nightmare to play against, so we’ve lined them up in an old school, catenaccio formation, which you can find a primer on here.
Here’s our side:
GK – Michael Myers – No shot ever fazes him. Neither does getting stabbed, set on fire, thrown out a window, dropped down a mineshaft, decapitated, or nearly anything else.
SW – The Mummy – A little slow now as age has caught up with him, but he’s still able to keep our defense tightly organized.
LB – The Wolfman – Transforms from a mild-mannered defender into a ferocious attacking force down the wing.
CB – Jason Voorhees – Our big lumbering man-marker that you’d have to go into outer space to shake, and maybe not even then.
CB – The Great Pumpkin – Has a talent for keeping opposing players occupied, even if you don’t really notice he’s there.
DM – Dracula – Sucks the life out of opposing attacks with his timely tackles and knack for interceptions.
CM – Freddy Krueger – Lulls defenses to sleep with his deep positioning and short passing before unleashing a killer 40-yard pass
LW – Jack Skellington – He may cut inside too much as he’s caught between his role as a winger and his desire to be a forward, but his long legs and nimble footwork mean he’ll succeed however he plays.
CF – Frankenstein – Our towering target forward didn’t have a good head on his shoulders, so we found him a new one and bolted it on.
