We thought it was about time we made another 606 XI and so asked you on Twitter what we should base the XI around. We had some good suggestions such as Cavemen and One Season Wonders - but we instead decided to go with the Spartan Army XI.

The response from you on Facebook and Twitter was awesome - and we're delighted we managed to get Patrick Viera and Roy Keane in the same team - but have put General Vinny Jones in the middle of them to make sure they don't fight themselves.

Then we've got a keeper who played through a game with a broken neck, warriors, hard men and people who wouldn't step backwards if a spear was put through them.

Given the nature of the players - we've packed out the midfield and gone for a 3-5-1-1 formation with very little width, on a pitch which could see the left and right midfielders hold hands.
