Gotham City Starting XI (Villains)

April 05, 2015

In honor of our new Gotham City FC design, I bring to you a new Starting XI list. Now I know our new design
- that you can purchase by clicking on this link -  represents the heroes of Gotham and I am sure I will revisit that Starting XI soon as well, but for now I am focused on how the evil of Gotham would be represented and so I have compiled a list for everyone on who I think would get the call up to represent the squad. 
Please do add your opinions and arguments on who you think would make the team in the comment section below.

Goalkeeper: Penguin


Although Penguin may not be the fastest guy on the field, we never quite know what's under that umbrella. What we do know is that Penguin is a genius and will be able to keep the back line in superb working order, so that he will only have to come up with a big save when he desperately has to. 

Defenders: Harley Quinn, The Riddler, The Joker, Poison Ivy

A mix of beauty and brains to baffle the opposing offense. Out on the flanks Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy will be making heads turn for multiple reasons, while The Riddler and The Joker do their best to confuse the opposition with the tricks they have up their sleeves. Penguin will have his hands full with these four in front of him, but I feel it would be a very solid back line. 

Midfield: Bane, Mr. Freeze, Don Falcone 

Gotta love Bane in a distributor role. The guy will be hard to knock off the ball due to his build and he will put the fear of God into his opponents for both physical and mental reasons. 

Mr. Freeze will play in a more defensive mid fielder role, stopping plays in their tracks before they get too out of hand.

As for Don Falcone? Don't let the age full you. There is a good chance Don would both own and manage the team as well and although he isn't always a fan of getting his hands dirty, I don't see him staying off the pitch much. Who knows? With all those scientist acquaintances in Gotham, who's to say Don doesn't end up finding the fountain of youth as well?


Forwards: Scarecrow, Two-Face, Talia Al Ghul  


Scarecrow is the perfect person to expose all the weaknesses and prey on the fears of the opposing back line. There's a chance he will do the same to the fans watching the game as well, but at least they'll be in a frenzied state throughout the match.

What's better than one goal? Two goals of course! Lucky for this team, Two-Face will be so obsessed with getting braces each match that you know he will be throwing a lot on frame.

Talia Al Ghul knows about precision and she knows about beating your enemy in the most lethal way possible. As the daughter of Ra's Al Ghul, her history with the League of Assassins will help her go in for the kill in every match and always keep her in contention for MVP.


I hope you enjoyed my Gotham City Starting XI (Villains) and as I said....chime in with your ideas!
