    I'm only 21 & done the same. I'm not sure what age you stopped seeing children out in the street playing football, maybe only in the last 5 years imo everyone stays inside now.

    What's Wembley? When I was a kid I'd be out from 9 in the morning till 6 at night playing football on the holidays and at weekends

    In them days every Man Utd supporter was decent in nets because of Schmeichel. Home from school and u had about half an hour to get something to eat then playing football until it got dark.

    Lol more mobile phones and consoles, kids have it all too good these days, all we had was the 10 minute freeview and channel 5 :#

    On topic heads and volleys or the more lenient version wides and catches, good times, my stamina was insane back then, remember nailing level 19 on the bleep test, the highest in my year,

    32 now but I would spend my childhood outside from about 8am until my mum shouted me home, only ever went home for food.
    Even when I got home from school I was straight outside.
    Could have been raining the whole day and everyone was outside.
    We called Wembley singlies
