It’s been a difficult season for Middlesbrough so far this term.
17 points from 19 games has left them hovering just above the relegation zone and in desperate need of results.
Injuries have played their part for Jonathan Woodgate’s side who have been left to use products of the academy system in recent weeks in an attempt to bulk up numbers.
While selecting your starting XI is usually a difficult task for a manager who doesn’t want to disappoint his players, it seems that for Woodgate it’s been a lot easier than it perhaps should have been with the team almost selecting itself.
Several players have failed to hit the heights of last term meaning that Middlesbrough have been relying on many of the same faces to pick up points for the club, meaning that some would suggest the club is better equipped at present to five-aside football rather than 11 vs 11.
But who would feature for Middlesbrough’s five-aside team? We’ve had a bit of fun and selected the perfect quintet to take the league by storm.
