Hurlock

No place for Bob Taylor my favourite ever bee. Never saw Stan Bowles so I had to leave him out. I reckon Tony Folan would be brilliant at 5-a-side!

Benstead, Hermann, Hurlock, Sinton and Forster. Pace skill and aggression. Benstead better stop stopper than Raya IMO.

Whilst I tend to respect most opinions you cannot seriously believe that last sentence or you've got some huge nostalgia glasses on.

Benstead played the vast majority of his career in the lower leagues.
David Raya is a Spanish international, who will be in with a chance of starting in the next world cup, he makes goalkeeping look so simple and is an incredible shot stopper.

5-a-side keeping is completely different from 11-a-side. It's all about shot stopping.

I know, I played in goal for donkeys years. 😉

Agility and reaction time is a massive part of goalkeeping in small sided games...

Benstead is still not on the same planet as Raya in all aspects of ability 🤷‍♂️

I respectfully respect your opinion that my opinion is crap 😀

Raya has played the vast majority of his career in the lower leagues (PL and below). Raya is the best keeper I have seen play for us but this is 5 a side and I have a hunch that Benstead could be a better choice

With the standard and number of internationals in the Championship over recent years, wouldnt exactly call that lower leagues 😉

Alan Judge and Jay Tabb would make any of mine. Ideal five a side players , technical , intelligent , goal scorers and endless energy . Both would win countless free kicks and fouls as well.

Tabby - that's a great shout.

I'm also surprised that Jensen hasn't had a mention. Not an 11-a-side crowd favourite, I know, but I think he'd be a fabulous 5-a-side player.

Sczesny already told Andy Scott that he doesn’t play in goal in five a side :)

For anyone who hasn't seen Sir Stanley in a Brentford shirt there's footage of him in the London Five a Sides on youtube. Here is just part three of the coverage
I have a feeling this is the only TV coverage of Stan playing for Brentford.
He would have to be in any Bees 5 a side team and I would vote Fred Ryecraft in goal for similar reasons to Nocoat's Dearden selection.

Need to be quick, mobile players on the ground.

Raya
Hreideson
