    lazy back & went someone

    Someone told me that he heard "lazy back" in a soccer movie. What's the meaning?
    Also, what's the meaning of "I went you to study"? If they've got meanings, when are they used? Any different in British English and American English?
    Finally, I'll be happy if you correct my mistakes in this text to improve my English skills.
    Thank you.

    "Want," not "went." I want you to study.

    Re: lazy back & went someone

    Welcome to the forums, BMlad.

    In soccer a 'back' is a defensive player. I don't need to define 'lazy', do I?

    In future, please ask unrelated questions in separate threads.

    How would "told" turn into "went/want"?

    I don't know. I've got confused, too.
    Then I'll search more to find out.

    There is nothing wrong with "I told you to study" but it is not the same as "I want you to study". Dave correctly assumed that "went" was a typo.
