    Scouting: Said Benrahma

    A cog in Brentford's attacking trident, Said Benrahma operates as a left winger acting mostly as an inside forward. A very technically gifted player and still young, aged only 24, Benrahma should be playing Premier League football make no doubt. With the likes of Bryan Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins also in Brentford's attacking line-up, Benrahma has many outlets for his outstanding creativity. Most definitely a creator more than anything else, let's see what makes the Algerian so valuable to The Bees.

    Scouting: Randell Williams

    Randell Williams is a 23 year old normally operating off the right wing for League Two side Exeter City. With his breakthrough season this season, Williams has taken League Two by storm this season. Blessed with blistering pace, Randell can dribble, shoot and create and all prolifically. Definitely operating at a level higher that England's fourth tier, Randell could be moving on up, be that with Exeter City or if a move to another club.

    Scouting: Ivan Toney

    Ivan Toney is probably not a name you've heard before. An ex-Newcastle United player that featured in 2 substitute appearances before being sent on a plethora of loan spells was purchased outright by League One side Peterborough United for what Transfermarkt reported to be £650,000. He has repaid The Posh in bags, leading Peterborough to 6th in League One, only 2 points from 2nd place, before coronavirus brought footballing activity to a standstill.

    Manuel Locatelli might be a name you've heard of before, having scored a scorcher against Juventus a couple of seasons ago for AC Milan. Since then, Locatelli has dropped off a little bit, spending the 2018/19 season with Sassuolo, before being purchased outright in the summer of 2019 for what Transfermarkt reported to be £11.25m. Still only 22 years old, Locatelli has used his time with Sassuolo to really demonstrate his qualities at the base of midfield, leaving I Neroverdi 11th in Serie A, 4 points from 7th placed AC Milan, before coronavirus brought footballing activity to a halt.

    Scouting: Marc Roca

    Marc Roca is a 23 year old defensive midfielder currently playing for bottom of La Liga side Espanyol. In an extremely disappointing campaign for Espanyol, one thing is for certain, Marc Roca is definitely operating above and beyond for Los Periquitos. Having made his debut in the 2016/17 season, Roca has gone from strength to strength, appearing for Spain's U21's in 2019. With clear quality, why is he still at Espanyol and will there be suitors in the summer of 2020, if RCD are to be relegated?

    The Best Gear for Playing Soccer in the Cold

    The Best Gear for Playing Soccer in the Cold

    A sport that is played all around the world, soccer has been played in many weather conditions, be it under hot summer sun or in the elements of winter. In fact, many soccer players prefer to play in cold weather as opposed to really hot weather. Though difficult to breathe in the cold, hot weather can be much more dangerous when intense cardio is performed. When temperatures drop, however, it’s important to wear the correct gear for playing soccer in the cold. How to choose soccer shin guards may still be a personal preference, but in order to stay warm while running up and down the field, players need the correct head, hand, body, and foot gear. The top brands like Under Armour, Adidas, and Nike have created clothing tailored specifically for these cold weather conditions.

    Where to start? As I’m sure my readers know I have ranted and raved for years about the quality (and sometimes lack there of) of the United States National Soccer team. The far more glaring issue and the baseline of our woes is the lack of international caliber depth at our disposal. But that is only the tip of the iceberg of our present national teams ineffectiveness issues when competing against top ranked teams. The real issue has been replacing the old guard of the 2010 World Cup.

    The 10 Best Soccer Movies

    Love soccer films? Me too! That's why I did my best include a variety of soccer films that show different aspects of the sport. A few of the films here are in tribute to some of the top players in history. This includes Pele AKA Edson Arantes Do Nascimento, who is known for scoring six goals in the 1958 World Cup. Zinedine Zidane, nicknamed "Zizou," is known for being 'one of the greatest players of all time' and way too many accomplishments to put into one sentence. David Becham, who is considered one of the greatest midfielders of all time... and is also still pretty damn good looking these days. I made sure to include a couple of movies following a strong female lead in order to be as inclusive as possible. After all, everyone can love soccer!

    My experience with Knockerball USA as an affiliate was not very good. Yes, the idea of making the business of bubble soccer flourish sounds quite fun. However, the idea is not as ideal as the company sells it to be. It is a low budget business, as far as starting it, but it will drain your pockets if the person does not get on it right away.
