Stopper? Is that like goalie?
and I know the jist of sweeper but we only ever used that term in hockey (field hockey) I think.
I played a lot of my time at goalie... I didn't like being confined but I was apparently really good at it.
Awesome!! I suck at goalie. And naw, stopper plays just ahead of the defence but behind the midfield, when one or the other helps the stopper either goes forward or back. Kind of like a sweeper but a sweeper for the midfield.
Interesting, never heard of that before...
I loved playing in the midfield but was never really fit enough... and was basically better suited to defense anyway.
Not that it matters, nowadays I only really do distance running and play touch-rugby!
Haha.. Thank you. I'm short and Doug was like "put your arms on the fence".. I did and I looked retarded! So I stood on the soccer ball and it gave me the perfect height. And it's actually not that hard to do!
