You misunderstood or I stated it incorrectly. I meant to say playing meaning the general sense of the word, i.e. practicing is a form of playing. It felt like he wanted to learn some kind of drill or technique to dribble like Messi, but that is not how it happens. You just have to "play". You just h...

Messi is a great dribbler because he has mad skills. You get mad skills not by practicing, but by playing. In the end soccer doesn't have much to do with technique or fundamentals, that's why it's called the beautiful game. Anyway, if you want to dribble like Messi then you play all day, every day l...

Life isn't as simple as the self-help philosophies teach. There are layers upon layers of laws and mysteries in every thing in the universe, and these broad summations thrown out there by the numerous philosophies are nothing more than an overview and understatement of what our world is really like....

Trainers don't have the studs on the bottom of the cleats and they have more support for your feet to help prevent injuries and to just be more comfortable if you're practicing for a long time. I originally got them because I used to practice alot on concrete and my feet were taking a beating. Here'...

Are those the new Predators? If they are then you can really use them in any position, they're very verstile. As for the v.06s, well I tried the trainer versions of them out, and I thought they noticeably decreased my shooting/passing power, so if you don't have a very strong leg, then I'd reccomend...

If you like RPGs at all then you most certainly will like Mass Effect. Of course, I've never played it myself, but my brother's already got something like a hundred hours on it, and he says it might just be the greatest game he's ever played.

I've never really seen what the big deal is about Kaka. From what I can recall, I've never seen him do anything special like C. Ronaldo or Messi have. Can someone help me out with how he wins player of the year, because I'm really confused...

I don't see anything wrong with his complaints. If he is right about the absent diet constrictions then he is certainly correct in pointing that out. As for the complaints about the different training methods, well that's certainly understandable. I'm sure that if you Ratherton, trained with Lyon, ...

http://expertfootball.com/training/speed_training.php Make sure to pay special attention to the plyometrics section and you should probably do even more research on it. Once you have found some good drills and have a little more knowledge about it all, you need to make yourself a routine. You need t...

I don't think any of us are qualified to answer that question because we aren't pros (right?). You can talk all you want about the ratio of talent to hard work and vice versa, but in the end you can't actually know. This is just one of those things that you have to find out for yourself.

Here's a strange one;

Pele on losing his virginity:

"It was with a homosexual, I was barely 14 years old. But let's be fair, I wasn't the only one who did it. He was a man in Bauru that all our team visited."
