Rules of football when we were kids

1. The fat kid was always the goalkeeper.

2. The owner of the ball decided who played…

3. Penalty (otherwise called PENARITY!) was awarded
only if an injured player could curse or fight a lot.

4. The match only ended when everyone was tired…

5. No matter how many goals you scored, the winner
would be determined by the last team to score…

6. No referee and linesmen. You could run with the ball
even behind the goalpost…

7. If you didn’t participate in repairing a damaged ball you were given a match ban…

8. If you’re picked last, you’re a loser…

9. The guy who’s never picked was to fetch the ball from the tree or bush when it got stuck, under the car or tunnel to play in the next game…

10. When the owner of the ball got annoyed, game

11. You were allowed to change a goalkeeper in case of a penalty…

12. The most skillful player got automatic selection…the most bully player got automatic selection too…….

13. No discrimination, both the children of rich and the poor played together!

14. Three corners make one Penarity!

15. All players help in household work of the ball owner.

16. If the ball burst everyone contribute to pay the owner.

17. You can’t dribble the owner too much. This may lead him to stop the game by taking away his ball.

18. You can go round the goalpost still return into the field and score.

19. When you hit your toes against a stone and notice blood, you quickly cover the area of injury with sands as a form of first aid. Play continue.

20. We called ourselves by nicknames of great players especially from Brazil and England.

21. Game over when it’s dark and we can barely see the ball. We all dispersed in groups to our homes teasing one another until d last player gets home to face another round of punishment from our disciplinarian parents

This generation is missing a lot of free fun. They pay dearly ( in monetary terms) for today’s fun.

Football is more than a game, it is fun.
