Football, for the most part, is a game of styles.

Some players are nippy and rely on pace to beat their opposition, others are intelligent athletes, using their guile to navigate potential hiccups and influence games.

Then you have the man mountains, players who's sheer size give them the advantage on the pitch, and who's height is an unfathomable annoyance to anyone they come up against.

Imagine a team filled with men who can comfortably beat most player's in the air without jumping.

Sure they might not be quick over the ground and may struggle to make darting runs or jinx their way through a minefield of bodies, but you find me a team better equipped for set-pieces and the long-ball game and I'll tip my hat to you.

We've been forced into a 3-4-3 formation due to a distinct lack of behemoths plying their trade at left or right back.

So here's to the big guys of football.

If only Tony Pulis had the money to assemble this lot.
