Favorite position and why?

My favorite positions to play are:

In a free role behind the strikers -- always at the center of the attack, and a lot of freedom.

Out on the right with freedom to move in -- the outside back becomes my bitch.

Support striker. Even though I'm right-footed I like to play on the left-side together with a powerful striker to open spaces for me. That's how I had my best games, but since I'm kind of big, coaches usually use me as a target man in the box, which I really don't like.

Support striker, segunda punta. I got great dribbling skills and I can create for my partner. I sometimes drift to the wings and can cross the ball pretty well. It's just my natural position and I've been playing it all my life, really.

When i feel like it i can be a pretty damn good defender too since i got the physical and technical abilities.

Nulla č impossibile per questa Inter

I don't know about that. I have a friend who just came from Uruguay and he has no right foot at all. He does everything with his left. If he has to kick with his right, he does one of those kicks where he swings his left leg behind his right leg and strikes the ball. Let me just say though, he is the most skilled player I have ever played with. What he can do with his left foot, few can do with either of their two feet, or even with their hands.

Is this guy Recoba?

Recoba is amazing though
Best left foot I have ever seen and he can use his right foot abit obviously but it looks like a bitch compared to his magic left

Seriously my Right foot is a joke
But I can hit a ball where ever I want with my left and it has power too

Right wing-back. Like a right-footed version of Roberto Carlos (without his shot, speed, or fitness)



I can dribble though.

I take it from the winking that you are making a sarcastic comment, because if you aren't there will be hell to pay.

Right-footed left-back here. It's my prefered position --I also played forward and winger. Had nowhere near as good a physical condition as Zambrotta or Roberto Carlos to play on various fronts so I'd usually stick behind. Playing well in the midfield was too physically demanding for me to be able to last an entire game, and my height was best used behind. During 5 vs 5's with friends though, I take the initiative.

i don't play on a regular basis, but when i play with my friends i'm either a left back or a striker
left back because i'm quite good at defending, but quite small so poor at heading the ball
striker coz i have a great shoot, can do some good volleys, but poor at dribbling or holding the ball ;also i'm a good passer so i like playing with a partner upfront.
oh and i'm left footed but with a decent right foot

No preference, but libero is great fun

I got man-marked by one of the strikers once, that was fun

how strange it is to be anything at all

Also don't mind lone forward, my silly EPL-viewing teammates don't understand how I score those goals when I only touch the ball 6 times over the match and can't head properly

Defensive midfielder/Midfield enforcer. Not the most glamourous position, but you can really influence the game if you get stuck in. Plus there's quite a lot of oppurtunities for the odd the 30 yarder.

I like to play up front now and again, but I'm as a not a natural striker and a kinda crap at it, I don't really see much of the ball.

In the centre of midfield, just a little ahead of the other centre midfielder. You have so much influence over the game, you are in control. While I am shite at defense, I can dribble very well and I'd like to think I have a good range of passing. I have a decent shot so I like centre midfield for being able to charge at people and taking long strikes. However, I am not a natural goalscorer, so I don't have to be relied on to score goals.

I also like the odd run at left wing, because I get to take people on more there, and try more tricks. Plus I try to replicate Giggs there. While I am better with my right foot, I am OK with my left, so I can give it a decent go with that foot. I can also cut it back well to my stronger foot for more accurate crosses.

^I agree.

Sometimes finding you is like trying to smell the color nine.
