Normo's coming home
Thanks for that tip off. As some one relegated to Left Back for much of his life I concur with the poster who observes:
There's nothing like good old fashioned full backs. They hated to lose, to go forward, they hated wingers, inside forwards, centreforwards, dribblings, feints, the good girls, a long sleeve shirts, small shorts, the shin pads, the referees. The one thing they hated most was the ball going through their legs.
Hah! Just reading this thread.
In my ingloriously short footballing life I started off as inside right and progressively went backwards to finish up at LB.
It is of course of no surprise then that I have extremely intense thoughts for the best LWB ever, Leovegildo Lins da Gama Júnior, and the dreamiest LB-come-humanitarian, Benoit Assou-Ekotto.
