Choosing my team

I recently covered the scoring matrix and included some previous wins and analysed what happened (Footstock Scoring matrix and iOS app). This time, we will look at how to choose players per position.

Warning: More videogame references!

Footstock twitter seems to enjoy the Street Fighter references judging by several tweets from myself and FPL Green Arrow. What I will do below is describe what kind of player I would be looking for with some Street Fighter analogy. 

GOAL – Goalkeeper

Judging the tweet above, we could all agree Dhalsim would be a great goalkeeper. His long limps can block and reach tough corners. He can burn you with Yoga Fire…. not allowed in football sorry!

DEF – Defender

Footstock sees Zangeif as an unorthodox opposition shot stopper. He would be beast as a centre back but possibly commit a lot of fouls with his Spinning Pile Driver! 

A special mention for full back will be the beautiful Chun-Li. She’s quick, nimble, graceful and can flick crosses into the box with her Spinning Bird Kick!

MID – Midfielder

In the world of Street Fighter, I’ll have Guile as my centre midfield general. He only can throw Sonic Booms to scramble the ball and throw a Flash Kick for tactical fouls… a bit dirty! Side midfield I’ll have a speed demon like Cammy darting about with her Spiral Arrow! Finally, for attacking midfield, I need someone flamboyant, has to be Fei Long. He is homage to the late Bruce Lee!

ATT – Attacker

The best attacking pair that you could get is Ryu and Ken. They both have very similar moves but Ryu can throw a flamed version of Hadouken and Ken can let off a flaming Shoryuken. How would they fare? Ken will be like a winger taking on defenders then unleash and assist Ryu to score. You Win… Perfect!

Piece of cake

Is it really? You have to remember, you also got to consider a number factors as well before confirming your players for the tournament entry. Below are general factors that could play have a impact on any player:-

Always keep checking your players before confirming them. I wish you all good luck on this! That’s it for today. Stayed tuned for the next one!
