How could we possibly whittle all the stars in the history of our club down to five? One goalkeeper, one centre-back, two midfielders and a striker?
Well, that’s what fellow fans have been doing on social media and what we’re going to attempt today.
For the goalkeeper, it’s an odd choice but in his prime he was one of the best in the world, so Joe Hart.
There’s absolutely no doubt about the centre-back, Bobby Moore, both for his defensive abilities and passing quality, which is key in five-a-side.
You need a born-finisher up front and whilst it would be tempting to go for Geoff Hurst or Paolo Di Canio, it has to be the one and only Dean Ashton.
See who other supporters picked for their all-time club five-a-side, below…
People need to realise that the requirements of 5-a-side are very different from the full game
