OK well I think im just going to post my comment on here, why not?
I have been playing soccer since I was 5 but just not at a competetive level. I am OK at soccer but not great. I am also 19 years old. I am at a community college and I feel like I am going no where with my life. I say I want to go to school and be a doctor but I am just not drawn to it emotionally enough. The only thing that I am 100% completly passionate about is football. I love the game, the supporters. All I want to do is play football. TO be a professional footballer would be my dream come true. Is it to late for me since I am 19? what other suggestions do you have or advice? THank you so much in advance for any help you can give me.
email me back at email@example.com
How do I send you a private message?
U can email your response at : firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
PLEASE respond because I am really desperate for your information and I will be thankful for your advice

Wah gwaan Lucas (as we would say in Jamaica )
I am 15 years and i don't have such a good diet as a kid. I play CAM and I am not the best in my position at my high school Munro College. My passion and love for football would make me do anything to become a pro someday. I got to America in the summers and play soccer there for my church team and at training with the women's team i score loads of goals with plenty assists. During the year at my home I train everyday whether individually or with my colleagues who are really good and run 13.42 on tired legs too.I'm just asking if I can get some tips on how to become a better footballer and how i can become recognized. This is my dream and I really want to fulfill my dream to become a pro soccer player. Thanks in advance ;D :)
Im only 13 years old so i probboly wont have the best diet but every thing else is pretty much good excpet agent as im not old enough :D but anyway i am not the best footballer in my school year im good i would say. But i would do anything in the world to become a professional footballer and play for newcastle united i dont play for a too good of a team and have training only once a week but every day i go to the park and train for about 3-5h every day. I just need some advice how i could get better at football well really everything. i have very good achivments in running as im a sprinter and been recongised but thats not what i want to be i want to start playing as a striker but now am a goalkeeper for some reason :D i would say i have the perfect combination for a striker im fast im strong iv got the strongest shot in my school ( my year in school ) and tall i jsut need advice on how i could get better at football and maybe get more recongnized
My name is mantas uzemeckas I'm 17 and I'm still in college and I'm doing football level 2 I'm leaving this year and I would love to do football I don't see myself doing anything else then football I've been playing football since 9 till now and if there is anyway you could lead me to a good patch as please help me out thank you and it would be easier if you could email me firstname.lastname@example.org
I apologize if this question is a bit unorthodox but it is surprisingly difficult to get professional soccer career advice. My son is a budding talent as a keeper. He is currently training in Italy in preparation for an upcoming trial with a good Serie B team. At the same time he has been invited to trial with a Serie A team from Romania at the end of the month. I can't disclose which teams because of negotiations however I can tell you that both are apparently at or near the top of their respective divisions.
My thought is that from a career perspective it may be better for him to stay with the Italian team even though it is a lower division because since it is Italian soccer there may be more benefit for him down the road. The agent that is trying market him is telling him that even if it is Romanian soccer (not that they aren't talented) he needs to take any Tier A/1 tryout that he can get if he wants a serious chance at big ticket teams later on.
I would appreciate your thoughts.
I've seen many people saying they "want" to be a professional footballer, but I don't want to become a professional footballer, I need to become one. I'm currently enrolled in college but as I've known for a long time, school just isn't for me, I'm a smart kid don't get me wrong, but I know in my heart that I'm wasting my time. I'm 18, I've watched and played soccer since I was 4 years old, I don't watch any other sport, in fact I don't like any other sport. I cried when Donovan scored vs Algeria and when we lost to Brazil, and you don't know how badly I wanted to write to FIFA about the Torsten Frings(the audacity he has for playing in the MLS angers me so much) hand ball or Koman Coulibaly's horrific call against Slovenia.
Though, I don't think you want to hear about that, you're probably interested in hearing about what sets me apart from everyone else. Well here it goes:
1. I truly believe its my calling, I can't see myself doing anything else and honestly I can't bring myself to do anything else, as I said above.
2. I told my mother that in 10 years time I would've made enough money being a professional footballer that her and my father wouldn't have to work another day in their lives, I also told my girlfriend that I would make sure that her college education was completely paid for, as would grad school, and I don't intend to go back on that promise.
3. I want to share my story with others, that against all odds you can persevere, you can make your dreams a reality. Like Jay Demerit did with his movie, except I intend to hold seminars and instruct camps as well and I won't gain a penny from it, its strictly to help others, I'm a firm believer in giving without receiving.
4. Along with the helping others bit, I want to create and take part in charities, hands on, not just throwing money and getting tax deductions.
5. Finally, this kind of ties in everything, I want to make a difference to people. In this one video I watched, 85,000 fans in the Bernabeu chanted a name.... "Cristiano, Cristiano, Cristiano"... I want people to do the same for me, I want people to remember my name, I want to see a kid walking down a street wearing my jersey.
Maybe I'm a dreamer, but I intend to give it my best effort for God, for myself, for my family, for my girlfriend, for my friends and for everyone else. In order to do so though Lucas I need your help. Physically, I'm fine, I just need work technically, I'm very fast (best attribute) but my foot skills/ 1-on-1 ability isn't up to par, I need a better touch, I'm tall but terrible winning aerial dual's, and I need work on positioning and making runs. Positives, I'm fast, tall, good at passing/crossing, I can use both feet well, I have a good shot with both feet and I'm good at tackling. Mentally, I'm also shaky, partially why my 1-on-1 ability isn't that good, I have low confidence on the pitch and I often get afraid of messing up and if I ever did it would be a disaster, I'm very hard on myself and maybe I don't need as much help as I say but I still need help. Do you have drills, tips, etc. that I can follow that are directed towards my issues? If so, please get back to me at your earliest convenience.
Recently realized that after many years of playing soccer with a few recent year off of organized soccer that nothing made me happier. The ambition to make it is stronger that any other desire or wish. It is like a voice inside that wont leave me alone. Therefore i am looking for advice, tips and representation to make it pro anywhere because a life making it by on soccer would be tenfold more fullfilling that the mechanical engineering path im on now. I am left footed and am well at LM, CM, CF, LW and ST. Though i probably excel at LM/LW or CF. I am 20 years old from USA and am willing to relocate anywhere and learn any language need. I am also willing to let it take as long as it needs to, this desire won't die and the training won't stop. Currently know English, Spanish, a little German and Russian. Will play anywhere; I do have my favorite leagues but my hope and dream is to play anywhere and inspire fans. If you could message me back or reach me at email@example.com with any help or information i would be beyond thankful.
I'm 13 years old, live in Canada, and am trying to work my way up the soccer ladder. I practice everyday and my dream is to be a pro soccer player. However, I am going to attend a prestigious school that focuses on Academics, and my parents want me to stop playing. How do I convince them to let me play? How do I get scouted and put into youth academies? If you could get back to me I would really appreciate it. Thank you
