    Basically I have been playing football for about 3 years and I’ve improved rapidly, unfortunately my first team folded and I had to move. I settled in quickly and was soon a first team player. I’m fast and I’d like to think good at all aspects of the game. But I get a lot of stick from people, never really my own teammates but members of other teams, in school they’ll say I’m awful at football and it’s really starting to get me down and make me question wether I should still be playing. I worked really hard to get into the school team and I’m a first team player for them too. I just need to prove to these people I’m not as bad as they think but I don’t know how

    **** them, dude, of course, they would say **** if it is not from your own teammates then I would say that you are doing fine they are probably just jealous or salty that they lost. Or want to say **** to make themselves feel better yeah don't worry about it especially if it from strangers who you do not even know :blah:

    Thanks for the reply, I guess your right. Just need to show them what I can do and they’ll stop, it’s not as if I’m inexperienced or literally **** at football, they just do it and it’s getting on my nerves now

    Last season I started playing left back, moved onto left wing and eventually found myself playing striker. I played roughly 13 games upfront, grabbing mysef 13 goals all season. Not so sure about assists but I’d like to say about 7 as I don’t always get my head up. This season ive missed lots of game time due to illness but ive played a match with school scoring once, we lost 4-2. and I scored for my local team in a match that finished 7-1, so on paper my record isn’t bad.

    Your record seems very good. I wouldn't worry about what other people say about you. just focus on improving and being the best player you can be.

    If youre not cocky, not selfish and keep on working hard then they will start to respect you. Give it back to them with a bit of banter and youll be alright.

    You're welcome
    Just keep training and eventually you'll reach your potential. Hard work and dedication pays off. If you have haters then you must be doing something right. Maybe they're just jealous so resort to mocking your ability to make themselves feel better.

    Lol if you're a striker just make sure you score(you're then obliged to be as crap as you want) and if you can't score make sure that you help the team one way or another(e.g. winning the ball back in good areas/holding up the ball/defending corners)

    People will appreciate you then.
