This was informative and funny…A lot of the things you mentioned are must haves!

Like # 9 you have to get the nice ride! But, on the serious side of things I think passion for the sport would be a good thing too!

“I promised you the 75% so it’s only the 25% left for you to master and don’t forget when you are at the top of your game remember who taught you everything you needed to know…”



Hey, just think of me as a “‘Manager’… I want my cut off the finances, lol


My father and I love watching football (soccer) Although I think 9 out of 10 steps to be a football player seem helpful, I’m not sure about #5. What if you are a woman football player? Interesting post though. Some of the steps are funny. I would add that it helps to have a coach. 


Haha, good call. I’m pretty sure these days everyone has an open mind so having a wife or girlfriend wouldn’t be any different whether you’re a male or a female

Lol! This is a very informative and hilarious post! I love your points about getting a sports Car. I do believe this is exactly what I’ve needed to get started playing football. I’ve also wondered about getting a golden tan since it seems so many players have a perfect skin tone.

All in all, I am very happy I read your post. Watch out noobs, with this information, I will become a football legend! ;D


Hey, the car and the tan is a must for all football players, lol


Wow, your article is very unique. Although I’m not a professional football player, I love to play football from time to time with my friends. So, I think I will purchase some of the items that you have suggested here. And Adidas Questra lll TRX Soccer Cleats are definitely the good boots but as you have said, they are quite pricey. But also your article inspires me to purchase those boots and maybe I will soon.


Yes they are a bit pricey but well worth the purchase


Hi Shwni,

I must say I love to hear what products those famous football players like to play in, and was a bit surprised at the cost of those boots for sure! Wow… But, with the almost constant running they do, I guess it you need a great pair, especially as a pro player. I do like you reasoning behind the “How to get Dressed Book”, you have a point about them needing it! 

And with all the flash they can purchase right here, at least they can look good trying to play like a pro! The Footballers Famous Qoutes says it best, ” All I got to remember is to wear the same underwear I wore last week, washed of course” 

Thank Shwni, 



Thanks for stopping by, I’m glad you enjoyed it
