I should point out that FIFA introduced a new rule recently about being able to play for different countries. You cant represent a country if you have been granted citizenship just to play football for them. Like Kofi Danning for example. He migrated to Australia with his family from Africa when he ...

I think the best way would be to draw the goal onto the wall with chalk, like nick said, and then maybe put some marks in the corners for you to aim at. You should always be practising to aim for the corners.

Don't think about your strengths and weaknesses relative to just one position. Look at them as a whole. It doesn't matter where you play on the park, dont think that just because you're a striker then you dont have to work on your defending. Similarly, dont think that just because you're a defender ...

Yeah but I love eating, so I dont question it :D

Football takes alot out of our bodies, so naturally we eat alot more than the average person. Eating shouldn't be the cause of a fitness drop if you're eating well, there's definently got to be something else going on that you havent considered

In general I would say use the first month to work hard and get your fitness up. Then in the second month tone down the fitness work, and just focus on maintaining your fitness. During this time you should dedicate the majority of the time you have to honing your skills. As for the heat, you're goin...

I'm not going to lie, any kid whose in a state team or high level development program has to have highly dedicated parents. You have two options. You can accept the fact that the only way to become a professional footballer is to have parents who are loaded. That's the easy path. Or you accept the f...

does anyone think real madrid would ever buy a guy like this? although they probably dont need him cause they have so many other, but i would like to think he would get a start over khedira or granero I think he's underrated as well, however to say that he would get preference over Alonso, Ronaldo,...

If its a mental problem, maybe there's something going on your life that you're stressed about? How do you feel before every game? Do you feel mentally or physically fatigued, tired from lack of sleep, nervous or something? Every time I've been receiving the ball, I get this feeling that everyone's...

Maybe Ive just been playing on some bad turf, but I absolutely hate playing on turf. I feel extremely off balance and very awkward, and the faster running ball doesnt suit my style. Grass is so much more natural and makes me feel as though my feet are on the ground.

Agreed guys, some of the best players in the world have come from underprivileged backgrounds (Pele, Maradona, Zidane etc). And Australia wonders in amongst all of our ethnic minorities, why we cant seem to find a Maradona to complete the the socceroos.

Mines $300 a season, also in Victoria. I played FFV champions league a couple of years ago, and that was $600 a season. I agree with you guys, its absolutely ridiculous, I do feel for families who aren't exactly loaded. I think its mainly with families who have 2-3 or more kids who want to play foot...

If you play like Arsene Wenger is watching you might put too much pressure on yourself. Enjoy it first and foremost. Fitness does play a big part, but aggressions not a skill. You're not the first person to ask how to be more aggressive, and its just something you've got inside you, no one can tell ...

Two months is adequate time to acquire a good fitness base, but I disagree with Desire, you shouldnt go full on into sprints yet. I would say use the first 4 weeks to establish a good stamina and strength base. You should do 3-4 runs per week (30-40 mins of aerobic running) combined with 2-3 conditi...
