I was about 6 years old when i played football and i did'nt know the rules of the game. All i knew was getting the ball in the back of the net but i was not sure which end of goal. lol. Yes my first goal was an own goal. The goal was not bad either but i got a lot of stick from my team mates. I really wanted to know more about the rules so i started watching football games on tv and reading books about the sport. I've been supporting Arsenal since i was 8 years old. I have found out that my best position is on the right wing and i'm not bad either. So do you play Football?? What age did you starting playing? Do you have a favoured position? Feel free to respond to this discussion.

My first kick of the football was in my primary school.We played on the basketball ground becaues there was no real football square in our school,but we still enjoyed the games.From then on,I just fell in love with the ball and kept playing till now.I am studying in university and football is one of my favourite activities after class.Oh,I play midfielder and I like controlling and passing because I think they are the two most important factors for a team to win the game.One more reason is that I can show all myself up in the middle place.

Hello mate, I play football every Saturday & Sunday, i too also support the mighty Arsenal. I went to Paris last year (C/L Final) where we sadly lost to Barcelona. Great few days spent in Paris mind you. Where are you from? I grew up in Islington. I am a Central Midfielder. I have played at Highbury and a few other Premier League grounds. I first started playing at about 4 years old (Me Mum taught me)

i started my passion on football when i was 10. i got a fifa cd from my brother and when i started playing it, i fell addicted. so i started watching epl since i like ARSENAL very much. then i invited my friends to play football at a court near my house. we do have trouble at the beginning but thanks to my friend's father who is a football fanatic, he taught us the basics of football. after training for awhile, we formed our own football club. we do won some games. i play as a defender on either side as i can use both my leg to kick.

Me too!! I was the youngest one. I was a libero until high school but since then I am a deep playmaker. I really enjoy controlling the tempo and set a through pass for my teammates. Or even make a solo run from the middle. I am a Juventus and Arsenal fans. And if I have a son, he will be a great professional player. ;P

I think I started playing football a little later than you. I was about ten years old when I first started playing. I started playing in football in parks where ball games were not allowed. When the security guard came, me and my friends used to run away. It wasn't until high school that I played in a soccer pitch. Arsenal are my favorite team too. I don't when I started supporting them. I think it all started when I saw Tony Adams carrying the trophy in celebration. I usually try to play any position I can. Just don't put me in the goalkeeping position because I will concede a lot of goals

You played football since you were 6 years old? cool! There are very few girls in my country play football. I only played football once when I was 13 years old. I was staying in the hostel, and there was a football match. I just went and took part, and played only once. It was fun, and someone told us to rules of the game. We only played for half field, but it was very tiring. :p
