    Football or Soccer? I Couldn’t Care Less...

    Football or Soccer? I Couldn’t Care Less...

    On Thursday, March 12th I was at university. The module was about coaching, taught practically. This really resembled a day-long PE/Gym lesson from my high school days. Except for this time I was both the teacher and the student. We played sport all day for two days. the focus was to learn about the fundamental principles of coaching and deliver two sessions ourselves while acting as players for the others in the group to coach. Little did I know that would be the last time I would kick a ball with someone else for 61 days. Within a week almost every sporting league in the world was put on hold. I was made redundant from two (later furloughed for one) jobs. A few days later the UK was placed on "lockdown".

    Bruno is 'Numero Uno' among the Rampant Reds

    “Best player on the pitch by a long way”, were the words used to describe Bruno Fernandes against Brighton & Hove Albion by commentator Gary Neville. A convincing 3-0 away victory for the Red Devils put them back into fifth-place on the Premier League table. The orchestrator of Manchester United’s victory was unquestionably their talismanic Portuguese attacking midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, who scored two goals, ran the most kilometers before being subbed off and provided decisive passes into the opposition’s box throughout the encounter.

    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.

    The greatest of all time

    probably the best player in the world today. He is one of the finest and most exciting footballing talents in the world. He had this never ending comparison with the former Manchester United Winger Cristiano Ronaldo but he kind of shrugged off it by helping his team defeat Manchester United convincingly in the UEFA Champions League finals at Rome 2009.

    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 as A Knockerball USA Affiliate

    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.
