    Do you ever think that as a footballer you're just an ovepaid pansy with no real skills applicable to life whatsoever?

    Hi mate cheers for the question. Of course I'd love to play for a Liverpool or United, but I admire the way Southampton run as a club too.
    Hey, we've got ambition and a history of developing good midfielders...do give us a try if you're good. :ahee:

    Did you get scouted, and if so where (random club etc.) and when?

    This is a great question. I do believe we are overpaid, especially in an economic climate where people are struggling to make ends meet. I personally donate a fair bit to charity and do a lot of work in the community- so try to do my bit where I can.

    Id love to play in the premier league soon, I like to think I can get there with my current team if we work hard. I was spotted playing for my local under 9's team. I had offers from about seven or clubs, mostly in leagues 1 and two. Can't tell you who I signed for as you'll be able to find out who I am!

    Hi mate cheers for the question. I loved watching united during the mid to late nineties so obviously looked up to the Neville's, Giggs, Becks and Scholes. As an individual I'd say probably not, I'm decent but my progress has slowed up in the last few seasons. However, if my team make some solid investments and we pull together then who knows?

    If you're legit, fair play mate. Either way, you shouldn't feel bad. You're good enough to be a professional football and luckily, for you, the pay is pretty good. Shouldn't have to be made to feel bad about it.

    What are your plans for when you retire? Footballers don't have a long career and I guess the money won't last forever.

    Definitely not one of the finest English players ever.

    Hi cheers for the question. It's the best feeling in the world, to hear people singing as a unit and cheer your name is hairs on the back of your necks stuff. However, it's difficult when you've played terrible and thousands jeer!

    Hi mate, you tend to find in the lower leagues that players are more down to earth. Because we are not top, top players, it's easier for us to be replaced, so we probably respect and enjoy the game, more than players that know they can do anything and get away with it. I've thought about going into coaching, but it's not something I really fancy. I'd like to be a scout or an agent, where I could help some of the younger plays navigate there way through the game.

    Hiya, it would be awesome to play in front of the kop week in week out, but I don't think I'm at that standard, even though it pains me to say!

    Hi, yes most young players have to continue up to A level standard, this is just in case anything goes wrong with your career like a bad injury, then you have at least some qualifications to maybe go on to uni or whatever. I left main stream education when I first signed a pro deal, but the club has a school where it's sends all it's young players until they start to integrate into the first team.
