Squad for Zürich 2008
This is the 15-man squad for Zürich, Philosophy Football FC's 16th European tour, a journey which started in the same city 8 years ago.
The emphasis is on youth, with Gregorio set for his debut. But I have an advantage over Sven – who picked Theo Walcott in 2006 when he had never seen him play – as I've seen Gregorio play once in a Fulham living room.
The full programme will follow shortly. Following our earlier defeat in Zürich we will obviously start as underdogs, but we will follow the spirit of the Situationists, whose commemorative 1968 shirt we will be wearing (above). 'Be realistic. Demand the Impossible'.
The shirt will cost £10.00 each. We will be playing in BLACK SHORTS AND SOCKS. Nobody will be able to play unless they are in the correct strip. Those coming to the party on Wednesday will get your shirt early.
