The modern fighting man is as individualised as a half back or a centre forward in a football team.
I must say that my substitute at centre forward did exceedingly well, and I could not grumble in any way at being left out.
The players who, as a rule, make or mar the success of a side in modern football are the centre forward and the centre half-back.
I don't want to shout about myself, but it is a known fact that I'm positively the only centre forward they've got.
Naturally, the centre forward is the connecting link of the rank.
He was, nevertheless, a very useful all-round player, and could take his place as a centre forward at a moment's notice.
