    I need 10 posts before I can make my own post.

    BUT the reason I am here I will just ask here anyway.

    As a kid I was always the best dribbler at football like a little messi but I was shy and really quiet so I only played with people I knew most often and school. After high school I only played 5 a side really and with mates then in league, I had really bad fitness to. Reailty is ive never trained in soccer but have natural skill at least in dribbling and agility etc..

    Fast forward to now and 35 year old ive not played much over last few years but want to get back into it.

    My question was therefore is it to late and pointless. Firstly I need to work on my fitness so need train 3x per week cardio, well that's my plan and ive done 2 weeks already.

    I played with some guys 7s a few weeks back and was told ive got good skills and if I were fit would be a good player.

    But often I think whats the point who else is out there training hard just to play a kickabout game of football. I had a natural talent I wasted and now I'm old I just want to play but no fitness. BUT problem is my play was all about speed and dribbling, so I need to train I cant be the old veteran who sit back making sharp passes and long range shots etc..

    I wonder if I'm wasting my time but still keen to do it....I want to play football forever but that seems unlikely the guys I'm playing with are like 18-25 and miles ahead of me, not much luck finding older guys to play with, all my old mates rarely even work out and mostly all getting fat let alone play football.

    Football was everything for me, looking forward to each game and thinking about the last one. Life without playing sucks.

    But what the future hold can I still play when I'm 40, 50, 60? lol.

    Should I work on shooting technique and other things, its like I'm training like I'm Ronaldo but I hardly even get to play any games atm lol

    Hi everyone, I'm Antonio, 23 years old from England. Several years ago I'm not really into soccer in real-life, but rather, soccer video games like FIFA and PES. Until 3 years ago I got interested in real-life soccer when I joined in a match with my friends just for fun. At first I just thought I would join in for a short while, but when I stand on the field, I felt really exciting in the match. Probably one of the reason for that is me playing with friends, but nonetheless, I've tried to learn soccer and started watching soccer matches more often, though I don't have much time for it nowadays.
    Still it's good to learn from others, and so i hope to learn and share experience with you guys. Thanks!

    Hi there! I'm a swedish Viola fan who apparently joined this forum 10 years ago. Still I'm a newbie. Looking on the posts from the Fiorentina forum I recognize some familiar names from Xtratime.

    I will never call this game soccer though.;) Hope you'll forgive me.
