Just for a bit of fun lads, and please Eds, your input would be welcome.

I have already put my answers.

1. What position and number did you play back in the day.

2. What player would you say your game resembled "past or present".

3. What features of your game were you most proud of.

Looking forward to your answers.

{Ed001's Note - 1. Defensive mid.

2. Probably Kante as I was obsessively fit back in the day and would run all day closing people down all over the pitch. If only I wasn't blind as soon as I took my glasses off (and couldn't wear contacts as my eyes water too much and they would just slide straight out)!

3. Reading of the game and tackling.}

Thank you Ed πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ πŸ‘πŸ‘ we might get a complete team out of this?

{Ed007's Note - 1. I played at CDM & sometimes CB.

2. A cross between Roy Keane and Animal from The Muppets.

3. I was once sent off by a ref who was using a Monopoly card for his red.}

1. Attacking midfielder number 10

2. Matt le tissier or hoddle ( wasn’t the hardest worker, wouldn’t track back but when I had the ball things happened)

3. When I crossed the halfway line and ended up in my own half πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Prob my deadball qualities ( free kicks corners and penalties )

Nice question Dave πŸ‘
1 Right back/ Centre Half (latter years)
2 Fabio Cannavaro-was only 5ft 10 but was very good in the air, loved a tackle, not the greatest football talent but loved a physical battle
3 Being a pain in the arse to forwards and was classed as the fittest player in the team.
Some of my best memories are from when I was playing and I sure do miss it despite playing til I was 40.

29 Jan 2021 16:57:22
Ed007 that's a great combination for who you played like πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘.

{Ed007's Note - πŸ˜πŸ‘

1. Central defender, occasionally defensive midfield
2. Des Walker, plenty of pace and energy, quick in the tackle.
3. Sharp in the tackle, fitness, and didn’t lose too many aerial duels, despite being 5 ft. 11.

29 Jan 2021 17:14:37
Did you have the Walker 'tache Mark? πŸ€”πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

29 Jan 2021 17:43:02
So long ago now, I can’t remember mate. πŸ₯Ί.

29 Jan 2021 18:19:44
1. Keeper
2. Bosnich
3. Shot stopping, if there was a Champions League for 5 and side, I’d be an MVP, what let me down 11 a side was kicking, same as with Bozzie πŸ˜‚

Fun question mate, very nostalgic πŸ‘Œ

1. Right midfield,
2. Damien duff/ mark albrighton type,
3. Scoring direct from corners, if there wasn’t much height in the box I had a nack of curling them into the far corner, good set piece delivery also, I was small so speed was another of my best assets.

29 Jan 2021 21:28:33
You are a rascal asking these questions.

1. Right half, number 4, sweeper

2. Stan Lynn, hard as nails, unforgiving even to own players

3. Free kicks on edge of box. Bit like Alexander Arnold

Hope you and yours are all ok.

29 Jan 2021 22:05:40
I have been waiting for you Oldvillan, we are all ok mate thank you, hope you are both well.
None of the above a surprise mate, a defender and a winner through and through.
Take care mate.

Centre forward, Joe Jordan / Peter Withe type of player but quicker and dare I say a bit more skillful. Loved to rough up the cb and goalkeeper. Oh the days. Best asset was scoring goals for fun.

30 Jan 2021 11:18:01
Played every position except for right back. Most games at left midfield but at highest level centre back and centre forward in my veteran years

Most like Gareth Barry?

Hard tackler. Most would be illegal these days. Opponents would be rolling over and over in exaggerated pain all over the place.

Decent in the air and good left foot.

30 Jan 2021 16:01:19
Dave, have you sorted a team out yet?
Old and bold ready for the game.

30 Jan 2021 16:11:38
I think so mate, Markfrance and Moose are working on it. as we speak.

30 Jan 2021 16:42:08
Up front I used to play 44, goals in 32 games.

30 Jan 2021 17:44:28
You’re definitely under consideration 4eva, not sure we could afford your wages though and a contract longer than 90 minutes is out of the question πŸ˜‚.

30 Jan 2021 18:02:48
If only we could of offered contracts like that for Lansbury and Richards to name but 2 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

31 Jan 2021 02:05:40
Not as nostalgic as others as still trying to play πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚
1. Cm/ cam. no. 10 (won’t play in anything else πŸ˜‚)

2. Like to think maybe like a Scholes kind of player. horrendous at tackling πŸ˜‚

3. Always wanting the ball. never hiding on the pitch 😬
