Alliteration XI: F


Alliteration XI: F

The goalkeeping position in the “F side” is a battle between Newcastle owned Celtic loanee Fraser Forster and Blackburn keeper and loanee to half the Football League Frank Fielding. I’ve opted for Forster.

Schalke 04 centre-half Frank Fahrenhorst plays alongside former Villareal & Argentina defender Fabricio Fuentes in the centre half positions with Sturm Graz’s Ferdinand Feldhofer and former West German international Franco Foda (and now Feldhofer’s manager at Sturm Graz) on both flanks.

Francesc Fabregas of Arsenal patrols the centre circle and sprays passes wide to former Saints wideman Fabrice Fernandes on one flank and Fabio Fermani of Lazio playing just to the right of Fabregas. Aberdeen player Fraser Fyvie completes a four man midfield.

A front two of banned until 2022 (for drugs offences) Francesco Flachi and 41-capped Mexican international Francisco Fonsecana complete the line-up.

Ajax defensive midfielder Erick Enoh sits just in front of the back four, with the three just in front of him being former Basingstoke Town midfielder Efon Elad, Mexican international Erick Espinoza and former Sheffield Wednesday player Etienne Esajas.
