Hey does anyone know any players that have switched their positions.

I know of ;

- Ashley Cole( used to be Striker)
- I hear Jamie Carragher used to be a striker
- Gojko Kacar changes positions all the time
- Martin Skrtel also struggled to find a positon but commited to Defense at age 16
- Puyol was a striker I hear
- Also, possibly Kolo Toure


Does anyone know anyone else?

Paolo Maldini(in youth league) played up front and in midfield, and even in goals. He was an allrounder.

I actually heard that Miguel, Portugal's wing back, used to play striker. They were talking about during the World Cup.
On a different note everyone's pretty good with women when it comes to hookers... well except the sham-wow guy.

the actual age groups, for most footballing systems
eg. junior leauge or senior leauge
you can be a youth and still play in a senior leauge

eg. i'm 15 and i play in a youth leauge and a senior leauge (school and club)

9-15=Junior
16-18=Youth
19+=Senior

Cesc Fabregas was supposed to play Veiera's role when he first got his start at Arsenal (holding midfielder).
