Occasionally I get an idea about assembling a team, but with a theme. I then throw out these challenges on Twitter to see if anyone can help me fill in the teamsheet for a first XI. Last week I was looking for a #RotundXI and got a good few names which I could assemble two teams. Will do that another time though.
Today the idea is more inline to what we are all about – a #FootieAndMusicXI.
Below is a rundown of the first team, plus the subs – and a team manager.
The eccentric goalkeeper Arnold Layne who has put that drug thing behind him and is the first name on the list now.
|Pink Floyd – Arnold Layne
The solid centre back Charlie Brown, who has a persecution complex and he thinks that the referees are always out to get him. Not good with free kicks.
|The Coasters – Charlie Brown
Absolutely nothing is known about this player.
|Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros – Tony Adams
One of the two Jonnie’s in the team, much to the delight of opposing fans. The veteran Johnny Thunder who has a distinguished career in the top flight.
|The Kinks – Johnny Thunder
Partnering his namesake at the back is a tricky right back who’s good at getting up for the crosses, can be see floating into the box.
|Shelley Fabares – Johnny Angel
The midfield enforcer and captain of the team. Do you feel lucky punk ?
|Gorillaz – Clint Eastwood
The quick left sided midfielder, Kevin Carter sometimes joins in attack.
|Manic Street Preachers – Kevin Carter
The tricky Italian winger who can play on the left or the right.
|The Auteurs – Lenny Valentino
A product of the youth system, namesake son of the 60’s legend.
|The Jam – David Watts
The right sided player who is absolutely blind as a bat and much to the annoyance of his boss, is constantly losing his contacts during matches.
|Weezer – Buddy Holly
Ernold Same, a summer signing and the flying Dutch winger is just coming back from injury.
|Blur – Ernold Same
– and the team coach… who some say walks like a woman and wears a bra…
Three that are gathering splinters, probably make a change around 70 mins if it’s a stalemate:
» Jimmy Ray – Are You Jimmy Ray ? » The Replacements – Alex Chilton » David Bowie – Andy Warhol
[In The Stands]
There were a few others that didn’t make the squad and will have to play their football elsewhere…
You can find these and all the above selections via 6 Mirrors.

If this was an actual team then it would be somebody like Bolton Wanderers. Don’t have a name for this XI. Suggestions below. Also if you’ve got a candidate that the F&M XI scouts should look at. Again leave a comment below.
