This thread is somewhat strange, but I get the feeling many could relate to the topic. How do you get your footall or teamsport fix, if you are no longer able to play football? I used to play soccer 6 days a week, often twice a day for school and club. I burst into my club's senior team at a young age. I was soccer mad. Unfortunately, the body stress took its toll, and I injured my groin. Long story short, I'm not going to play full-field soccer games anymore, and I get the feeling 5-aside might be too much groin stress as well. As somebody who was obsessed with football, it is hard to let go. It's been 3 years since I last played, and I have this anxiety when there are major tournaments like the WC or Euro's. I want to feel part of it, but feel like a fake, since I don't even play anymore. Watching football is fun, but a painful reminder at the same time. Keep in mind that I was usually watching to pick up skills and ideas...not just for pure support. Any ideas how I can get my fix? I was thinking of taking note of tactics in games more often. I even thought of playing Touch Rugby. I just want a sense of belonging! I gym everyday, but that just doesn't fulfill the team feeling.
