Native to Florence, Italy, the Arachno Nethos Minderos were found in the top corners of Fiorentina’s goals. Club officials kept them secret and over the years the arachnids were the cause of many an opposition team thinking they’d scored only to be left puzzled at how the ball stayed out of the top corner. Apparently there was a whole hidden dossier on their use in the Calciopoli files.
The Robo-Goalie was part of the ‘Robotics Scandal’ that arose when Skynet sponsored a football team. Performance enhancing robotics were rife throughout the sport until eagle eyed observers started to notice the enhancments.

The Scuttle Muscle lives inside lost leather footballs and can retract back inside their ball in 0.2 seconds.They are voracious readers and love tearing through volumes of odd football trivia. Apparently they keep whole shelves of books inside the ball with them.

Atlantis Sub Aqua have some of the most dedicated fans. They even head to away days on dry land (as long as the stadium in question is within run and jumping distance of a body of salt water).
In football changing rooms all across the world, the Clothesquatch lurks out of sight in the dark corner of the showers. It shuffles slowly around when there’s no one about, taking the smelliest and oddest fitting clothes for itself.
On special European nights in the depths of dark and cold winter, Vox Populi can be heard echoing in the rafters of packed football stadiums. When noise and passion collide these jellyfish like creatures generate and amplify the might of the football crowd.
Whenever you head a ball, St. Merrick takes the brunt of the impact. As saints go, he’s extremely bad humoured, he doesn’t perform any miracles except for trying to stem the rising bumps and bruises that are occurring at all times around the varied topography of his titanic skull.
In the future humans live in colossal apartment blocks tens of miles long. Running alongside them like a green river are football pitches, one after another. Mother’s sick of repeatedly calling their kids in for dinner banded together and developed the Football Police, an immensely skilled unit of ball collection robots to intercept play and send the children home. They were developed by the brain of Franz Beckenbauer.
