As England bows out of the world cup, we have been considering alternative teams that may have served the nation better! What better than a team made up of Shakespeare’s characters? Who should play in goal? Who should be the manager?
There have been several of these doing the rounds here at work but this one was done by Noel, one of our actors.
In Goal we have CASSIUS (from Julius Caesar) – slim and agile but makes rash decisions on occasion
As Right back we have MACDUFF (from Macbeth) – Family man who excels in tit for tat exchanges
Our centre backs are TYBALT (from Romeo and Juliet) – Good attitude he likes to make a mess of the opposition.
And HENRY 5th (from Henry V) – A born leader and great communicator
As left back we have HOTSPUR (from Henry IV part 1) – A bit of a hot head but quick on the overlap
Our mid-fielders are PUCK (from A Midsummer Night’s Dream) – Creative with a good engine to cover the ground.
IAGO (from Othello) – Devious and cunning provider of dipping ball.
ENOBARBUS (from Antony and Cleopatra) – solid and loyal with a poetic touch
Our right wing is LAERTES (from Hamlet) – talented at cut and thrust wing play
Our inside forwards are TALBOT (from Henry VI part 1) – leads from the front (come on my son)
And CORIOLANOUS (from Coriolanus) – unstoppable when his blood is up especially when encouraged by his mother.
Our left wing is DON JOHN (from Much Ado About Nothing) – A dark horse who can think outside the box.
And our Manger is PROSPERO (From The Tempest) – A safe pair of hands as storm clouds gather who gets on well with his staff
Goal Keeper THERSITES (from Troilus and Cressida) – a foul mouthed motivational therapist
PERICLES (from Pericles) – Integrity mixed with enduring good luck
And THE BEAR (from The Winter’s Tale) secret weapon to deal with babies on the field.
