    I'm male, 5'5", 18, what would be the best body for me as a CF?

    I'd say I'm like Messi in that my key traits are acceleration and dribbling...However I can't help but think that maybe Messi would do better with a bit of strength, e.g. Aguero.

    Right now I'm quite built for my size, but I'm considering getting to Aguero's body. (Won't take long).

    How adversely would that affect my pace and dribbling?

    I'm saying what body would be right for me...At 5'5"; unless I can grow 6 inches at 18.

    it will take you months to reach aguero's physique, considering you said your build is more like messi at the moment, to be honest you should focus on your lower body strength since you're fast (maybe build a good squat and do some plyometrics and vertical jumps), and placing your body between the ball and the defender, because you won't be able to compete with centre backs physically at 5'5", regardless of how big you are (aguero is 5'9") so working on drawing fouls could be an asset, look at how players like messi and hazard shield the ball and get so many free kicks from them

    Cheers for the helpful post, will definitely look at my lower body.

    Sorry if my post was long/confusing but I'd say I'm actually in between Messi/Aguero in terms of upper body. But yeah, thanks again for the reply.

    If there was no transfer window, Akinfenwa could just make a career going on week long loans to whoever Liverpool are playing. Mingolet vs Akinfenwa every week :coma:

    Akinfenwa would get out-paced by a 3 year old kid. SRS.

    Smalling could grab on to his Shirt and Akinfenwa could drag him :lol:

    Akinfenwa is obese. Rolls of fat all over the shop. Terrible physique.

    Imagine if that was Rooney

    He's got a bit of a gut but it's more muscle than fat. You may be thinking of another League Two stalwart, Steve McNulty.
