What formation do you play?

I was reading in one of the sections on this website about different parts of the world and their respective playing styles. It got me thinking. I know that in England the teams almost exclusively play a flat 4-4-2. In America, most kids grow up playing a 4-4-2, but with a sweeper and a diamond midf...

Sorry wiseman, I had to make some tough decisions today. And being on the bench of this team is no disgrace. Not even the legendary Maradona could crack the starting lineup.

Too bad Jose will be probably off to Madrid this summer. His personality was too fragile and after the incident with the Spain coach regarding Henry, he never really caught form. I think it will probably end up being best for both Jose and Arsenal if he goes. Arsenal will get some much needed cash a...

10-0, 9-0

Those are the scores of my High School's last two matches. Fortunately, we were on the winning side of both. Both times, the other teams goalkeeper cried after the match. And both were juniors in High School. Does anyone here cry after losing? After winning big games? Also, what's the worst that you...

Yeah it kinda sucks being a soccer player in America. You get made fun of and all of the football/baseball/basketball players think that they are playing the greatest sport in the world. I don't know how many times I have heard "soccer is g**" or "soccer is for q*****". It's funny though, considerin...

Good vs bad lifestyle story

There were two aspiring young soccer players living in Seville, Spain. One was named Jose and the other we will call Pedro. Pedro was known throughout the city as one of the most promising youngsters ever to live in Seville. Jose was good, but he was always playing second fiddle to the talented Pedr...

Go to www.ronaldinho10.com. Then go to the videos section. There are a ton of videos and if you have a good computer they are easy to download. I enjoy the montages the most. They are compilations of Ronaldinho's most memorable moments with inspirational music playing in the background.

Too much soccer?

Okay I've read stories of guys like Nedved training for 8 hours a day and Ronaldo playing on the street for an entire day. I've heard of other pros living on a soccer field when they were young. I am 16 and I train everyday for 2-3 hours, but I still can't seem to take things to that next level. Som...

First of all, find a mirror that you can see your whole body in. Take a swing with your right foot. Then take a swing with your left foot. If your left foot is as bad as you say that it is, you should probably notice a considerable difference between your two swings. Then slowly swing with your righ...

Wow, there are going to have to be some changes. Rosario, if you are what you say you are, well we can make room for you. As for set piece takers and captains, thats a great idea. If there are any natural leaders or expert free kick takers, let me know. I'll probably come up with the team sometime t...

I think that Arsene Wenger is the best manager in the world. You've got to understand, the best managers are the ones that do the most with the least. Wenger has built an average team into one of the best, and most entertaining sides in the world. Cole, Toure, Lauren, Pires, Vieira, Ljungberg, and H...
