Absolute hate 4v5. Infuriating

6 a side on a 7s pitch is the best. More space and time on the ball

Agreed re. 4v5. Hate 4v4 almost as much for some reason. Warnock

Used to play 8s on a 7s pitch at Sighthill. Pinilla must be where I refined my close control and passing skills.*

The glasgow kickback 5s game was up to 8 a side at one point, then numbers tailed off as folk left Uni etc, moved away, ended up having these 7 a side grudge matches against glasgow reds (liverpool fans side) for ages. There was one particular rasper who thought he was a spice boy, gold boots etc, used to get involved arguing with everyone, ended up at a stage where we were just about scrapping most weeks. Warnock

We’ve done young v old a few times at my Thursday night fives, usually a good laugh and not taken too seriously.

But the feeling of dread, when you get to my age and start frantically looking around the changing room for five people older than you. FuckMe

I’m on the cusp of the old team and usually end up as the oldest in the young team, but I can see it changing before the end of the year. Fat Cunt

We've done that but it's brutal as the poles are mostly fucking terrible.

Was playing fives tonight and there was a boy playing in our team who insisted on adding “ey” on the end of everyone’s name. Laugh

Worked fine with my name and a boy called Grant who became Grantey, but didn’t work so well with Tam & Colin. vladchin

Still didn’t stop him though. Warnock

Fat Cunt The 5 don't try as it's quite embarrassing to be giving it maximum effort against 3 guys and a total duffer who is along for the first time, the 4 have already given up before game has started. You feel like you would all be as well just going home. Laugh

I’d argue worse is when the guy organising it realises he’s arranged for one too many players to come along Muggy

Happed to me playing what was meant to be 7 a side at Sighthill a few weeks back. Everyone is standing around waiting for the game to start when someone pipes up that there’s 15 folk. The sensible thing to do would’ve been for someone to volunteer to drop out, but everyone had hung around for an hour after work finished to play so the game was smack bang in the middle of rush hour traffic on the bypass. Was probably the worst game I’ve ever played.

Add the guy who starts a good run and inexplicably stops to the list of infuriating players. A guy we’re playing with does it regularly. Starts his run which would take him into space, then between you clocking him and playing the pass he just stops dead so you end up rolling the ball to no one. He’s not even unfit either. Constantly claims he wouldn’t have made it before the ball was intercepted but it’s a load of shite. Completely baffling why he does it so much.

Some absolute slug at 5s last night, hugged the left back position all game and every time we attacked, was screaming for the ball back to him. Would pass it back and he just lumped it aimlessly back up the pitch. Zlat

Gave commands all game about who should mark who, and caused chaos as it always involved him going to someone else's man and leaving one spare. Laugh

Ridiculous.

There's a boy coming to our fives the now, one of the guys that usually plays brought him along because we were short one week, this cunt has continued to play ever since and he's actually the worst player I've ever seen, I mean there's shite and then there's having no clue how to play football in any way whatsoever, he's ruining the game constantly and he still keeps coming along, no idea why.

Some old cunt tried to elbow me as I went past him last week; caught me (not well I may add) around upper chest. I was more Monty Chuckle and didn't say anything as he wears a Hearts strip or bits thereof. Guess it must have been some sort of retribution for putting him on the deck earlier ... runs in short strides so any close attention to his feet/the ball ends with him taking a tumble.

And some other cunt, quite a big lad with a good shot on him, swatted me out the way with his arm as we both went for a ball, like he's Viera. I'm like wtf, it's Sunday fives mate Monty Ha For a second or two there it's genuinely going through my head as to whether I should slide tackle him next time he gets the ball but the fog cleared!

I always start in goals, but swap out whenever anyone wants.

The pointless long ball into the corner is but one of the many rubbish weapons in my arsenal. Hung

If this cunt had even managed to hit the corner it would have been an improvement. He was just sand wedging it back up to the other keeper. The D4nny Wilson of 5 a side.
