    Soccer, anyone?

    Since all of us like soccer, that must mean most of us play the game. So, I just want to know what positions do you guys play?

    I, myself, play soccer for my regional CDC youth training soccer club. It's not exactly a competitive club. We just have regular friendlies against other clubs.

    I usually play on the right side, right back or right wing. But I almost always find myself straying to the centre, especially when I'm playing defence.

    Well, I don't join any team and hardly play football in Singapore. But I play it a lot in Indonesia.

    I started off as a central defender. I think they wanna take advantage of my size. Yeah, I'm big and fat. But, later on, I play as a striker because of my size, as well. I'm very Vieri-esque when playing but my movement are more like RVN. The goals I score are like them too, which means, tap-ins all the way.

    I still play as a central defender at times though. I'm very slow but I think I can read the game well. Walter Hanuel.

    Oh, and I absolutely suck as a keeper.

    Oh part 2, I hardly play in a real football-size field. I play indoor football all the time.

    I'm really horrible at playing football, but when i do, i end up as either a goalkeeper or the central defender. Defending is what i do best.

    I'm not that good in football either, but the best role/position for me is probably like CZ's. I just run like a maniac and so on.

    For 2 and a half season I played as semi pro for
    Homalund (sec div team in Swe). However my achilles
    injury did somehow stop my progress to a bigger stage!

    I still play on weekends with friends, and also for my company
    team during the week.
    Prefered position is on the right wing, but I could/have played
    as central midfielder aswell!

    On a more diplomatic note: Im ready and available for
    the coach to play at any given position

    Well I usually play in central midfield. I like to play as an attacking midfielder but I can also play in a more defensive role where I just try to hack down the opposition players . Sometimes I play as a right winger too. I`m not that fast but I can cross well. My best weapon is my long shots and free kicks.

    Without bragging I can say that I was a huge talent who got the wrong soccer education. Hence didnt make it to the prolevel.

    And my favourite position is LM. I can play LB, playmaker and CF too. Im like a younger Luis Enrique! Such versatility...

    Oh my god. That's way too cool. I wish I can be in a real soccer club, but it's highly unlikely, cause in Singapore, there's only one main league (I think).

    Well..........I played quite high standard football until I joined my senior school where I had to choose whether to play Rugby or Football and being tall and everything I chose Rugby, which I am now doing well in if I may say so myself.

    But before at my old school I played quite good football. I am left footed and played for the year above at either LM or LB. Then the following season I started as the lone CF with varying success, before moving back to LM. As the season progressed there was an injury crisis and I played RB, despite there being a right footed LB LOL!!!I actually probably played better at RB than at LM. I was also the teams penalty taker and scored every one I took. I remember in the QF of the local tournament we were in a shootout and I was the only player to convert my kick...we had players who were in Reading and Fulham's youth teams taking penalties and they missed But I scored

    I still enjoy playing at the park with my mates....and I play very well when it's just for fun, rather than in proper matches. I suppose compared to my mates I am quite skillfull and I suppose I am like a very amateur style Roby Baggio in the way I play

    Sorry, I didn't mean to brag, just having a bit of fun

    I played real football (11 Vs 11) just for 4 years, but in other periods it used to be in small field/basketball court (5 Vs 5, like that).

    And in those 3/4 yrs, I used to play in tournaments organized within the school, not in school team.
    I was never fond of being in a school team, so never tried for that and wud not have been selected as well, coz I am not that good, COZ I am just not interested to spend that much time in football..... I love to play basketball and cricket.

    Anyway, my positions used to be RB/CB/DM
    I haven't got that much skill. I would run on and on, like emre/okan, not like a mad man just running on and on, but doing well as well. Just pass the ball around and stopping the opponents from attacking (DM). When I wud have the possession, I would not mind to kick the ball as hard as I could (in our box).

    Goals ? yup
    We had a tournament in the school.
    And I was kinda doing J.Zanetti stuff in that tournament (ofcourse it's among us friends/seniors/juniors - the tournament in school), .... sadly my long passes sucked/sucks, so I used to try to dribble past opponents, trying to use my skills, usually in vain !! But I was not that bad when it came to using the flanks and passing the ball around. The other reason why I wasnt bad was coz I cud use my strength (physical), I am/used to be a strong lad, not afraid of tackling (usually good ones and I never injured my friends) and I do have speed and my stamina is good as well. Run !! Run !! everywhere, ofcourse helping my team-mates, pressure when the opponent had possession

    Atlast, talking abt the goal !! It was a rainy day ...
    I got back the possession in the centre area of the field and started the run (from the centre area of the field ofcourse) .... I would usually pass the ball, but it was a different day. I started the move all on my own. It was a good counter attack move by Pravesh. When I was got near to the penalty box, I was trying to pass the ball, but my teammates yelled at me to take a shot. (oh my god, I had never taken a shot from that far, I didn't want to be laughed at, coz it was really far for me !!)
    But somehow, I was forced to take the shot.

    ## Reminder : I just had to get past one opponent and when I saw 2/3 defenders coming towards me, I took the shot straightaway, coz I cud no way dribble past 2 at that time !!

    What happened next ?
    In my disbelief, it went to the right top corner for a goal. A stunner by Pravesh. I had scored for the first time in any kinda tournaments (mine-tournament, but still). The goal, I had scored proved to be the winner (coz before I had scored, the score was 2-2 or 3-3). I am not lying, but it was something like Almeyda's. The only difference being that I had just taken a wild shot, which luckily went in.
    And you know how I celebrated the goal ?? I shouted - "GOAL" and ran around like a mad boy.

    coz I was only used to supporting teams (television) and I never knew how to react after scoring a goal.

    When did I score my next goal in any tournaments ?

    NEVER !

    So, am I really good in football ----- A big "NO" !! Practice makes a man perfect, and I never practice. But I am not bad when it comes to passes. I also played in the small field (5 Vs 5) and I was not that bad. I even won 5 Vs 5 tournament (in college, yet again not in college team but just a mini-tournament among our college students.... It was a sports week event.)

    That's only few memories I have of football. But same can't be said of Basketball though. I spent much time in basketball and still do so, when I get to.

    Well since they didn't have football at my school I never played the game as a team game so I can't saay I played any position. I used to play football with friends but no position since you can't really have a team when there is only about 2/3 a side games.
    Forza Inter per sempre!!!!

    at Prav's story.

    Did I mention that I have the stamina of a 70 year old and the finishing ability of Diego Forlan or Choutos? Honestly, I have missed 2 open goals in my life. Unmarked, no keeper, ball was crossed at a slow pace from the right and the goal at my mercy. Somehow, I missed. Twice! Two truly embarassing moments.

    Oh and btw, for the strikers out there, do you aim when you shoot? Personally, I didn't and it was purely instinctive every time I shoot the ball. I don't have time to aim so I just try to hit it on target.

    That's a disgrace.
    Thankfully, I never had embarassing moment when playing football. But I had one when playing basketball. Let me tell ya.

    Adult Stuff :

    Me and 3 other guys were helping our school's girl basketball team by playing training matches with them. Me and other boy + 3 other gals in one team and 1boy + 4gals in the other team. Our sports teacher was the referee there. I would not mind to block their shot or like that, coz the teacher wanted us to play well so that the gals wud have good training match.

    As usual, I was damn active ..... as always whether it's boys or gals.
    Then came the much awaited moment when my opponent (a gal) was actually abt to grab the ball. I also tried to get the ball, so that the gal wud not get it. I had no wrong intentions, really !!
    My hand went straight to her _ _ _ _ (the upper part of the body). And the force was definitely there. Just imagine, I was going for the ball, so how wud my hand's position wud be. It did seem that I really wanted to grab her ..... .

    For a moment, there was a silent in the court (thankfully it was just the players and no audiences = 1 teacher + 3 boys + 10 girls). Then in few seconds everybody started to laugh like hell !! I said sorry to the gal, she also smiled but a bit nervous. Well, our sports teacher (lady) was also laughing.

    And after that incident on that day, I played as if I had no stamina. I didn't want to repeat that kinda stuff again on that particular day.

    I had never been embarassed like that. Ofcourse, it does happen when playing with gals, coz it happened many times after that as well, but that particular incident was really ......

    Sorry for going off the topic .... from football to basketball.
