Off the Ball's Halloween XI

Ally Hunter

The Halloween XI could play for Ips-witch Town, with Ally "Haunter" in goals

Marc Rieper

A defensive stalwart for Celtic, Marc "Reaper" would give attackers shivers up the spine

Dave Narey

Playing at the back would be Dundee United and Scotland legend Dave "Scarey"

Jim Duffy

Jim Duffy (the Vampire Slayer) is a guy you wouldn't want to meet in a dark close

Emlyn Hughes

"Gremlin" Hughes would have opposition strikers running for cover...from his annoying laugh

Franck Sauzee

"Guiser" Sauzee was as cool as a new wave French film. Was said to have raised spirits at Hibs' Easter Road

Gavin Skelton

Gavin "Skeleton" could do with a few plates of mince as reward for his guising

Shunsuke Nakamura

The midfield maestro in the side would be "Shunspooky" Nakamura. Such is his power, he can bend things round walls

Thomas Gravesen

If Thomas "Gravestone" came to your door dressed as a footballer, would you let him in for his Halloween?

Billy Abercrombie

St Mirren's Billy "Aberzombie" could prove that life can be breathed into old stiffs

Erik Bo Andersen

Scary Erik "Boo" Andersen put the willies up many a Scottish player, including many of his Rangers team-mates

Kasper Schmeichel

On the bench is substitute goalkeeper "Casper" Schmeichel

Jonathan Gould

Jonathan "Ghould" would never get a game but would be useful for carrying the monkey nuts and tangerines

Kenny Deuchar

When the party games begin, former Gretna striker Kenny "Dooker" will be right in amongst the apples
