Title: Removing your idiomatic footballing foot out of your mouth for the last time

Hook: Ever wonder how players like Messi, Ronaldo, Stevie-G, Schweinsteiger, Pirlo, Suarez, Iniesta, The Dodgy
Flapper, Sneijder or RVP play for their countries during the World Cup, but also play for teams like Barcelona, Real
Madrid, Liverpool, Bayern Mnchen, Juventus, Galatasaray , or Manchester United, in random countries, and also
play in something called the Champions League, not to mention several other cups, and even manage to play in
several of them simultaneously? Well, after today, Im sure youll be able to explain it all, while hammering a pint and
downing a meat-pie.
Ethos: I have been studying, playing, administrating, coaching, and all around enjoying the beautiful game for more
than a decade now.
Thesis: Having been around the game as much as I have, and being so heavily invested in its growth and expansion,
I have learned that the game will never improve, without a growing fan base, and that this fan base will never grown
without a proper education.
