wat is a relatively fast 100 m time for proffesional footballers? i am a striker and can run just under 12 seconds, is this quick enough 2 be a striker or should i work on my sprinting speed some more?

I think that is very fast :D
But strikers it is also important 2 ave great acceleration ie. over 20-40m.

it depends some strikers work well in large areas and others in more confined areas depends what kind of striker you are

yea, quickness is very important, i think its more important than actual speed. because, when are you going to sprint 100 meters during a match?
not likely at all, but you are constantly making short runs and going to the ball and these sort of things
if a quiz is quizzical, then what's a test?

A different interpritation of speed:
when you are running for your life, you can pelt practically full speed for 15 minutes or something insane. When you feel endangered your reactions become more acute.
This is because of adrhelinin released into your bloodstream. The same thing happens in sport. I agree with karlofootball 10, you arent ever going to run 100m dash in a game. However you will make shorts bursts for the ball. Because of the adrhenilin you will react twice as fast and run twice as fast.... if you exhilerated/excited. Therefore your 100 & 40m times probably arent your best as they are not under the same conditions. Pump yourself up before a match and ull perform better. I guarentee it.

liek someone said before, the first 20-40 metres is where you need to be fast, i mean, how often in a game do you run 100m straight? not a lot, if you can accelerate relatively quick then thats all you need.

Acceleration is reall important, much more important than top speed. Look at people like Maradonna and Romario, not too fast but very lethal on short distances.
