    Right, so this is really embarrassing, and people at my school know I suck - but its just, I feel that people use football as a sort of social connection utility, you know, something that everyone can talk about? (Anon or delete please)

    So, before uni, I want to get better at football.

    Advice?

    There will be a lot more than just football for social connections at uni. Trust me. Your school sounds a bit **** if all they do is talk about/play football.

    Get out there and practise, instead of posting on TSR and absent-mindedly picking your nose.

    Just grab your friends and go for a kickaround on the park - pick sympathetic friends who won't mock you. I do it with my friends every holiday and it's just a regular part of our social life, now. Though, to be fair, all I do most times is sit and cheer on the guys...

    I'm crap at football but play most days and talk about football all the time. You don't need to be good, but if you want to get better practice.

    Just get a ball and go to the park early in the morning. Practice, practice, practice. Get a mate who knows the basics and practice with him if you like.

    It's not a difficult game. It's just about sticking it into the net and if you can't give it to someone who's in a better position to do so.

    If you play football more hawt girls will also want to be with you.

    I'm just glad you're willing to give football a chance y'know? 'cause a lot of men want to be chefs and have no interest in football. No wonder England didn't qualify for Euro 2008 :rolleyes:

    Why is this in H&R? Take it to fitness or sports.

    Basically, practice and get fitter. It's not rocket science.
