A number of central defenders have taken on the centre forward role, some on a permanent basis. The most famous of course being the great John Charles at Leeds United. Paul Warhurst was another player who could play in either position it often happens in football.

You also forgot the famous Simon Ainge, he worked a treat up front.

I fully accept that it does not always work out and if you look into the history books of all football clubs there will be far more failures than successes with this experiment.

The point I am trying to make is that given our problems with the centre forward position it is worth due consideration.

At the funeral of one of our platform users I got talking to the gentleman's brother. He told me they had seen John Charles playing for Wales at the Racecourse. Centre Half first half, Centre Forward the second.
