There are countless people liking football. I want to know which is more fun for you, watching match or playing it yourself. In my opinion, playing football is more fun. I like the feeling if I have a shot at the goal and get point. It is so wonderful. And what is your opinion?

It depends on a lot of things! If I'm playing with a load of scalliwags and rogues, it's freezing cold and I'm stuck at right back, then I'll take watching. If I'm playing with my buddies, dancing around up front, I'm much more likely to take an interest! It's been a while since I played properly, but I've seen a load of great games since then... It's even more special if you're at the game, watching from the stands.

Even though there are many women footballers now I'm afraid I'm too old to play these days (I'm 43). However, many of my friends in my younger days were lads and during the 1970s there weren't as many parked cars around, so we were able to play football in the street. The goals were next door, a big space marked by jumpers as goalposts. It was great fun and very good exercise too, I must say. I had a wicked left foot ala Bobby Charlton. I could also use both feet and it really annoys me when I see highly-paid players who cannot do this simple task!
