RGarcia, once u go that college route, u can almost forget about playing Professional Football at a high level. College football or soccer as it is called in the US, does not prepare u to be a professionall footballer. It prepares u for a job after school or continuing education if u wish, but football wise, it's poison. U most likely gonna end up working 9 to 5 job.

If a youth want to make it high as a pro, do not go to college! Had Stern stayed in College, or had Kenwyne Jones gone to the US and go to college, he would not be where he is today making about $25,000 pounds a week!!!!!

Dont ever lose your Dream of Becoming a professional footballer, Just Update the Dream. My dream update from Playing Pro to Coaching Pro to buying a pro team etc etc.

Once you love the game find a way to stay in the game.
even if it is a Sunday evening league

While you playing your lil sweat visualize that you in the San Siro.

Records were made to be broken.

Roger Milla play at 42
Trinidad make world cup with yorke and latapy on their last legs when the came close as tenagers.

one day a man will run out on the field as a 50 year old rookie in a professional league.

Nothing is Impossible
you could make at any age, all you need to be is good enough!

Frankly if one day I dig for oil down in south and I get rich like Ambromovich I go buy Chelsea and guess what.
I putting my name on the team sheet and taking a lil 10 minutes now and then.

Never Give Up!

It have real men on here is Pro, like you ent know. With FIFA WC on play station you can become the best in the world. :rotfl:

I still do believe that I can make our national team with what I have left. When I see how bad those wingers are I do believe in the dream. The thing is you ain't leaving yuh decent job and go back to Trini for no fame and glamour because they ent go pay yuh mortgage and car note...oh yeah and child support. ;D

The ball is like a magnet if you continue to knock it…it will attract, and then you can attack.  Get it?

Anyone who just finish playing US college ball should give a shot, seriously. If it does not work out, you have your degree to fall back on.

Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.
