Versatile Defenders

The option to reposition certain centre backs as full backs was one of my proposed new rules, so I thought I'd start a thread to discuss the rule, and who it would apply to. I think the following players can/do all play at CB and FB.

Cuellar
Ridgewell
Givet
Samba
Jagielka
Agger
Carragher
Boateng
Onuoha
Coloccini
Perch
Boyce
Heitinga
Richards
Brown
De Laet
O'shea
Corluka
Spector

Brown played a maximum of 2 games at RB last season and every other game at CB. Don't know where he'll play this season though. Heitinga I'm also unsure of. I guess you could justify keeping him at FB.

Oh, and Arteta is a CM.

Gerrard looks like he is back to being box to box CM too.

Cuellar - CB
Ridgewell - FB
Givet - FB
Samba - CB
Jagielka - CB
Agger - CB

Onuoha - FB
Coloccini - CB
Perch - FB
Boyce - CB
Heitinga - FB
Richards - FB
Brown - CB
De Laet - FB
O'Shea - FB

For me. Unsure about Givet and Boyce though. Don't watch enough of either side. Heitinga is a hard one too.

We can't start handing out too many positions to too many players because it inherently changes their value.

As the rules allow for us to play 3 centre backs and one full back, surely any that can play both should be put as a centre back, giving the manager the versitility without changing the game?

If you go all out with this, then surely the likes of Rodallega should be ST and AM?

I have no sig. If anybody would like to make me one, please inform me

Well one of my other rule changes was to make two fullbacks compulsory, since the 3 CB-1 FB system doesn't make much sense.

But you might be right. It would probably be easier to pick a position, and reevaluate in January if that player has switched to a different position. Based on the games between now and the end of the transfer window, we should have an idea of where these players are going to play.

That would make more sense to me. I would have no problem with switching players based on the previous season/half.

I mean I own Joleon Lescott, but he's a centre back. Sure, he can fill in at full back, but that doesn't make it his position. If, however, he spends most of the season there for some reason, then I'd apply to move him.

Hunter Corluka hasn't played CM since he played for City.
