So, your six-a-side team has been shorn of a couple of players, most notably the former captain whose laser-accurate right foot could still do a job but ultimately his lack of pace has caught up with him.
Not to worry, there's a couple of bright young things coming though ready to step in. The new boys are Jack Wilshere and Sergio Aguero.

Ok, so not everybody has that luxury. Pepsi MAX do. And the Premier League duo have joined up with the planet's best player, Lionel Messi, as well as Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres and Frank Lampard.
To celebrate they have thrown a little party with superstar DJ and popstar Calvin Harris. And Sportsmail has exclusive behind the scenes of footage ahead of the release of a short film out on April 3.
Drogba said of the 'Kick In The Mix' campaign: 'The storyline to the advert is so exciting and different from anything I have seen before. The track Calvin Harris created for it is amazing as well; it feels like a song that could get a whole football stadium dancing.'
‘Crowd Surfing’ sees the Pepsi MAX footballers at an outdoor beach festival strutting their considerable skills on the hands of wild revellers listening to Harris.
The exclusive footage shows just how the players are projected to images of the crowd, and is a nice insight into the technique needed to produce the perfect scissor kick and diving header.
Messi said: 'I had so much fun shooting the new Pepsi advert, as I always do. I must admit, I never thought I would play a game of football whilst crowd surfing on people’s hands but that is what’s great about Pepsi, they always add a fun twist to their adverts.
'I think people are going to be saying “how did they do that”'
Sportsmail will be one of the first to have the full video when it is released next week.
