Plus your 16 years old, you are still young, if you wanted to you could even wait another year, imagine how much of a better player you will be? you may not think so but you definitely will. But what the hell why not start now :p Also, does anyone know ho...

wat about a us college are the chances better there? Education should be your main focus if you are going to college in the USA. It will be expensive though for an international student. Contrary to popular belief full tuition soccer scholarships are extremely rare and its very very competitive. So...

Most universities offer online classes or even full online degrees. That may be something to look into if you don't think you could find the time to take the traditional on campus classes. However, you'd probably be on campus for only 2-3 days per week for a couple of hours depending on how you sch...

I've been watching the USA games. Excellent game against the Czech Republic and a complete 180 against the Uzbeks (don't feel like typing out whole name). I think they suffered from over confidence after the Czech game. The ref was terrible but at the end of the game the USA didn't play well enough....

Why do you want to practice stepovers while wearing ankle weights? Ankle weights put stress on your knees.

I don't agree. Not everyone is able to go to the gym for an hour/few hours every day, and to be training really effectively, you need to be doing around 4/5 days a week. I have my loft conversion changed into a gym room, where I have a bench, knee curler, knee ex tensioner, rowing machine, treadmil...

There is always an increase during the major tournaments. I saw a lot of old members come back during the World Cup to talk about the games. However, that was short lived. I think in terms of the old members a lot of them are not playing soccer anymore or trying to make it pro. I think playing socce...

We could make a promotional video and put it on youtube. Youtube really is the way to promote yourself whether its sports highlight videos, music, short movies, product reviews. Why not websites?

I've never used the adjustable ones but they are probably a good one to get. Takes up a lot less room and you can obviously adjust the weight as you get stronger.

Sounds like the USA. Here being on a good club team can cost anywhere from $1,000-$2,000 a season that is for uniforms, ref costs, etc. In the USA playing a lot of games and tournaments seems to be preferred so add in travel costs and its a lot more. It is ridiculous I know some kids who play on the...

How long are your naps? It sounds like you are oversleeping and then getting a "nap hangover" :D You should try to take short naps like 20-30 minutes, I know it sounds like a short amount of time but any longer than that will also mess up your sleep schedule later on at night.

I definitely should look over seas because there isn't much here for me, but at the time how big is indoor soccer in europe? cause im not very sure. Also where did you see the pro trials for players 17-26? I think pro futsal is bigger than ind...
