Position change

Post by styale18 » 02 Sep 2011, 01:41

Hey guys i know you probably see a lot of these topics but i feel i have to find a new position to play in. i played right/left fullback but im not sure i have the athleticism to play the position. im 5'9'' and 155/160 lbs (rough estimate.) here are some points of my game

Strengths:
one touch passing
jumping (winning headers)
ball striking
first touch
tactical sense

weaknesses:
speed/quickness
agressiveness
heading accuracy

You initially said you were athletic, but you've listed speed and quickness as weaknesses?

You can jump high, but your heading is inaccurate, well that just cancels out the former really.

Aggression isn't essential for a fullback, but it's preferable.

Judging from what you've told us so far, I'd say you fit into a centre mid role. I'd have a better idea if you were a tad more specific though. For example; how is your passing?

Everything you need, is already inside.

nah i said i might not have the athleticism to play it. my passing is accurate and i can play long balls.

decision making is also a weakness because i hesitate too much

definitely a center or center defensive mid role, how good is your tackling? i only say defensive mid because your decision making isnt very good, but if you play defensive mid then thats something that you do need but not as much as a pure center mid. center mid or defensive mid definitely

since i played fullback before, my tackling is decent. I've tried CDM once and didnt play too badly but ill need to make a habit of looking behind me and feeling around with my arms before i get the ball
