When the gaffer says "no"

I don't know if you can hear this over in the states.... sometimes the BBC only allows UK listeners.

Anyway, thought I post this, in case someone found it interesting.

"It's every young footballer's dream to make it to the big time. But how do you get that first professional contract?
Each year thousands of teenage wannabes try to follow in the footsteps of players like Wayne Rooney.

Olympic Gold Medallist Darren Campbell tried and failed before he went on to become an athletics star.

He follows six young apprentices as they deal with injury, pressure, living away from home and trying to balance their studies with football."

Don't think so.... it's a pretty small documentary, but I found it pretty interesting.

It tells you how the system works in pro academies and shows you how hard it is to make it in pro football.
