    That concludes the play on Day 4. With both games over running there's no time for a third. The crowd don't seem to mind. What a day they've seen. One or two of them may think about heading to the bars of Hockley, and I dare say they may be joined tonight by the jubilant JAMESES.

    20 teams entered at the beginning, 10 have now fallen. Some of our younger fans who were brought up on your Baxters and Wignalls won't have seen some of the older players on show here before. It has been educational for all of us. My new favourite Forest player is Tommy Graham.

    Some breaking news: James Dean Bradfield has left his post due to mutual consent. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink takes over with immediate effect.

    Goodnight.

    Stan Collymore: Wow. I’m exhausted after that! Another absolute barnstormer! You don’t like to see any team go out on spot kicks, but on balance, I think the JAMESES deserve to go through. Great strength of character: 2-0 down, 3-1 down, but they never gave in. And you have to say Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s tactical manoeuvring changed the course of the game. Great stuff!

    Johnny Dent: Your heart has to go out to Paul Wilkinson. The lad will be gutted in that dressing room. I just think the PAULS ran out of steam – they played a qualifier yesterday and it caught up with them in the second half. They were hanging on by the end.

    Kevin Gomis: Le lapin est blanc et noir.

    Billy Gray: The game turned on a moment of genius from Jim Baxter. He was great today. In fact, you could say he was soup-er.

    David Pleat: Lol. Great bantz, Graysie.

    "LOOK AT HIS FACE! JUST LOOK AS HIS FACE!!"-

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Can we have a pre final exhibition match with the garys v the gareths? Rush goalies of course

    Your palms are holding her neck and thumbs are at her ears regulating the speed of her head as she swallows and then sucks up your machinery. She is topping up your engine oil for the cross-country coming up. Your RPM is hitting a new high. To wait any longer would be to lose prime time... She picks up a Bugatti's momentum. You want her more at a Volkswagen's steady trot. Squeeze the maximum mileage out of your gallon of gas. But she's eating up the road with all cylinders blazing.

    Welcome back to the Capitalk FM Arena for Day 5 of the SFNNFFCT 5-A-Side Cup. It's Fans Saturday. Due to all the late entries and the late late drama, there are still two Round of Sixteen matches left to play. The first of these, STEPHENS v SAMUELS, takes place this morning. Every seat in the house is being sold this morning on a first come first served basis. The first fans in the queue were pitching their tents before the final game of yesterday had even finished.




    This guy was first in the queue at 1pm yesterday.



    There will be no shortage of support for Sam Jennings of the 1920s inthe Arena this morning either.

    On with today's game. Steve Cotterill has a selection headache and is open to advice. He thinks his best five players are for sure the first five below. Cotts wants to play like Barcelona with a false 5. There are goals there from midfield. But to go far in this tournament the STEPHENS may need a recognized goalscorer. He wonders what he should do? If it has to decide by himself, he's going with the first five.

    STEVES
    1.Steve Sutton (80s goalkeeper)
    2.Steve Chettle (80/90s defender)
    3.Steve Hodge (80/90s midfielder).
    4.Steve Stone (90s midfielder)
    5.Steve Wigley(80s midfielder/winger)

    6.Steve Guinan (90s forward)
    7.Stephen Howe (90s forward)

    I'd go with the first 5 (I think Stone and Hodge could be even better 5-a-side scorers than 11-a-side ones) but as Cotterill is best with a good assistant then I'd let him run it past Steve Cram who might decide Wigley starts on the bench. Howe is a good call, but less of a centre-forward than Guinan I suppose so in the small-sided game maybe more of a like-for-like switch with Wigley.

    I love Steve Cram. I think he's the best commentator on the BBC by miles (and for miles I suppose) these days. I met him this year. He talked to a group of us for a work thing, with Lindsey Sharp, about UK Athletics, coaching, and the sport in general. It was brilliant. A big football fan too. I remember the BBC had him on for the 1992 FA Cup Final. He's always jousting with Brendan Foster in commentary with their north-east football rivalry.

    Cram's a Sunderland fan though and has no business getting involved in the team selection here. Lichaj Sports could do worst than to offer him a guest appearance in the studio since he's here today. But Cotterill will be pacing the sidelines whilst Steve McClaren will be sat behind a plant in the stands with a phone and bottle of Evian ready to chip in with advice.

    I agree with your team though. If they need a change the Steves may introduce Howe for Wigley.

    Are the SAMUELS unchanged? If so, a key match up today will be how Steve Chettle deals with the goal machine that is Sam Jennings.

    If you're a Forest fan in the 35-40 age range, Cotts' selection here is a bit of dream team:

    STEVES
    1.Steve Sutton (80s goalkeeper)
    2.Steve Chettle (80/90s defender)
    3.Steve Hodge (80/90s midfielder).
    4.Steve Stone (90s midfielder)
    5.Steve Wigley(80s midfielder/winger)

    The manager who will be hoping to outwit Steve Cotterill is LTLF's very own Samuel. No sign of him yet. Let's hope he is already out of bed. He has though already indicated that he will not be changing a winning team. This SAMUEL line-up of course gave the ALANS a bit of shellacking in the qualifiers.

    SAMUELS
    1.Sam Hardy (20s keeper)
    2.Sammy Chapman (60/70s defender)
    3.Sammy Clingan (00s midfielder)
    4.Samuel Widdowson (1880s forward)
    5.Sam Jennings (20s forward)

    STEVES v SAMUELS

    This one finishes at 12:30pm.

    Who wins?

    Stone and Hodge play a series of one-twos and Hodge ends up in the box where Widdowson tracking back hacks at his leg and claims he was just testing out the shinpads he was prominent in inventing. Stone, finding it hard to get the ball away from Hardy in normal play with the smaller goals (which I hadn't considered with my earlier comment - he scored quite a few good ones into the top corners for someone who didn't score a lot) has no such trouble from the penalty spot.

    I've got that down as a dramatic game winner, but in any case you can chalk a goal up for the Steves.

    SAM HARDY

    The most famous goalkeeper in the country in the first quarter of the 20th century. England international who arrived at Forest in the 1920s, helped Forest promotion to the First Division and then kept them there. After Peter Shilton, the best keeper in the tournament.

    Hard to see past the Stephens in this fixture. However with the head height rule in 5 aside the assembled Steves are giving away constant free kicks as the carrot crunching tracksuit wearing buffoon in the dugout keeps screaming at them to hit it long.

    This STEPHENS team has a great understanding, all coming from roughly the same era. Steve Hodge in particular is at home in the format. He may have be around when Forest were a strong team in the 80s Guinness Soccer Sixes and/or when the Forest team won the master ten years ago.

    Comfortably over 1000 mostly top flight appearances in this STEPHENS team. Few teams in this competition can boast of that kind of top level consistency. Further down the line they may lack for goals, but there's enough threat from Stone and Hodge here to do some damage to the SAMUELS.

    Chettle is being giving a tough time by Jennings, but Clingan is getting trounced in the midfield. And that's the key. Hodge times a perfect run behind to get in behind Chapman and it's 2-0. Steve Hodge commentates on his goal for Radio Nottingham as he scores with a "YEEESSS HARRY!!!!".

    STEPHENS 2 SAMUELS 0



    If coach SAMUEL is about, his team need him. There's certainly quality in this SAMUELS team. They aren't done yet.

    Widdowson and Jennings discuss how best to deal with the midfield superiority of the STEVES, and conclude the best thing to do is ignore Clingan when they have possession.

    Widdowson presses Wigley to win the ball, then sets off on a mazy dribble reminiscent of his wonder goal against Sheffield in 1879-80. His low show is palmed away at full stretch by Sutton, only for the ball to rebound to Jennings , who fires home like the true finisher he is. Goal to the SAMUELS.

    How many times can the SAMs do this against such a dominant midfield though?
