What Position Do/did You Play?

Comments on a recent thread inspired me to ask this. Probably we've played this game we love at a competitive level at some point in our lives. Whether it be when we were younger, or perhaps we still do. My question is, what position on the field did or do you play?

 

I played mainly at high school, then a bit socially afterwards at uni and for my church team, before my knee gave out. I found myself mostly on the right wing or right mid. More of a down the wing and crosser of the ball. Took the teams corners and penalties as well.

Central anyhwere - Started life as quite a Powerfull Centre forward - peaked in central Midfield - Then the wise head & slow legs would play just behind a younger back 3.

 

Typical amateur career Ping when younger make do with what still works when get older, retired with plently of aches & breaks.

 

I was once & am still the only preson Ive known to be sent of for sitting on the ball...!!! ( literrally sat on it)

 

Got 8 goals in a game as a kid once & my massive claim to fame was a Hatrick V's Twice USA World Cup finals goalkeeper Tony Meola for a regional youth side whom played a touring US services side in the 80's.

 

Meola was on the USS Berkeley & I still have his cap he gave me for the hatrick..

 

Though my gretest footy memory was being deemed good enough to play Sunday league @ 15 yrs of age & in the same team as my DAD. Not many get to do that with their arl fella's.

Right wing mostly...occasionally left...too skinny to get involved in the middle :lol: . Took corners and (in a variation on Pat's theme) had the honour of being sent off by my dad, who was a qualified ref :P . Only played 'til early teens, fourteen-ish because I realised I was never going to be good enough to play for Everton (and I was more talented in other sports).

started as a right back, ended up as a right mid. was never really fast enough or skillful enough to be called a winger, but i could cross a ball well enough. took a good corner, and i was so pissed i was never on penalty duty, that was down to the managers son. but i always won the mess about peny comps. the first thing i remember my dad teaching me was hard and low and as far into the corner as possible. i used to think i was great at free kicks too, but i wasnt really (somethin to do with scoring one in a "B" team game, they let me be captain for the "B" team when i wasnt playing for the 1st) only play 5 a side now, so dont really play in a position, i am fond of waiting on the left and shooting on sight

Similar to PAT in lots of ways, started up front, dropped back to Mid, and finished in the back 4.

i used to hang around in the ground after we played, waiting to see if any other teams showed up with men short so i could play for whoever needed, sometimes played twice on saturdays and twice on sundays, going from ground to ground on my Bike.

 

I Just loved playing the Game. Never ever played with my Dad, but i had 5 brothers who where decent footballers, and can remember playing with and against at least 2 of them.

 

Cant ever remember getting sent off, i went in hard but was always Fair. Played competitive stuff till i was 36, couldnt do me or the team justice after that, so just played for fun.

Played RW but then went into CM. I'm not going to blow my horn and say how good I was, I wasn't good enough for Everton though :(.

 

Then around 12 our CB got injured and I volunteered (just the type I am) to play there. Played a blinder and next game I was given the number 5 shirt. Initally gutted but grown to love the position.

 

Now though I play either ST or CB. Bit of a lethel finisher for my 7-a-side uni team. And got a good record for the 11-a-side uni team.

Left Back, never played anywhere else, because I couldn't.

 

Took all appropriate free kicks requiring a good left foot, and set the all time school record for sendings off in one season, 11.

 

If anyone got past me then God help them, I wasn't nasty, just competetive.

I can honestly say I never recieved a yellow or red card. Must be because I'm a model profressional or that no one ever seemed to get carded no matter how dirty the challenges were :rolleyes:

 

Pat, I got a nice scar on my right knee from a nasty tackle but I did do a Roy Keane on the guy the next time I played him ;) (but not as nasty)

 

As for cheerleading, maybe Zed and Goldy in some uniforms :huh:

Later in the football life discipline probs came. mostly due to the body not doing what the brain tells it.

 

Frustration - lead to Yap, yap, yap & usually in the referee's ear. Got pinged for Crude words more than crude tackles.

 

Though the infamous send off, we conceeded a free kick just out of the box, as a wall was forming someone screamed ( As they did) SIT ON THE BALL - so never one to be a smart ass, I parked me BUM on the ball.

 

Both teams pissed em selves xept the man in black - Ungetlemanly Conduct. Got a cple weeks holiday for that stunt.

I always used to play at right back in junior school and for some reason never continued it on through secondary, tried playin a bit last summer but had to stop with comin to uni, i think with a bit of practise i cud be a kind of pain in the arse forward like AJ but if im honest i hvnt played a great deal and need some experience, any tips would be useful? lol

Left wing/Striker.I have tbh and say i was actually quite good in my younger years....a brief history:Although born in the land of scouse i grew up in scotland, i was a bit of a loner and used to spend hours kicking a ball against the side wall of the house, resulting in big piles of those little stones everywhere. At the age of 12 along with 2 others from my school, i was were picked out to train with the mighty aberdeen fc, me and 1 of the others also tried out for dundee united, after about a 1 1/2 years i sadly was involved in quite a bad motorbike accident which led me to develop a medical condition, which as soon as the club found out what it was they dropped me straight away, as you can imagine i was heartbroken, my dreams were ended. The youth coach at aberdeen at the time said i had a 'Thunderous' left foot that was too strong for it's own good at times. I think the problem was, i was never that quick, i had the skills,tricks,flicks etc and was decent infront of goal but moved like a snail. I played on for a few years afterwards for some local junior and amatuer teams then quit football alltogether and moved to liverpool.It would be nice to play again though, we need a toffeetalk team to play one of those rs forums. I found out a few years back off one of the other lads i was with, that apparently the rs and manure had been to have a look at the possiblity of taking all three of us.

well in primary school i played in goal

 

for my under 9's (i think) i played all across the midfield then moved back into centre defence for a few years then ended shifting to right back by the age of 16 then shifting between RB and RM the last time i played but hoping to start training a again and i'm on the look out for a new side to be honest

missed me haha :lol:

 

 

And me <_<

 

Think I'll take my services elsewhere as I was looking for a regular first team place :P *tells agent to find a better suited club*

 

No problem guys. I'll probably last approx seven minutes tops before I'm being sick by the corner flag...one of you can come on for me ;) . I see myself more in the role of assisting Claire at the cheerleader auditions anyway (tough job but someone has to do it) :) .
