So, the long wait is over, the Premier League season has got underway, well for everyone apart from Tottenham and Everton who will have to wait a little bit longer. There’s nothing like a bit of football on TV to get you eager to start playing the beautiful game. After all, the same happens for two weeks of the year when Wimbledon is on – just try booking a tennis court at your local part at the beginning of July. Anyway, back to football; if seeing Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, Chelsea’s Fernando Torres and co. in action made you want to lace up your football boots, then get set and go!
While watching the Premier League’s best footballers on the box is all well and good, there’s nothing quite like playing. Nothing can match the feeling when you curl in a free-kick akin to that by David Beckham for England against Greece in 2004 or performing an overhead kick like Rooney did in the Manchester derby last season (although you might only ever score goals like these in your dreams!) A tap in from six yards might be closer to the mark, but whatever your level, make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to show off your skills.
Also, if last weekend saw you shouting ‘I could have done better than that’ at your teams’ players, then the football pitch is the only place that you can do that. It’s all well and good talking the talk, but can you walk the walk? Would you have been able to slot away that penalty that Liverpool’s Luis Suarez skied over the bar and into the crowd at Anfield? Would you have stayed on your feet when Arsenal’s Gervinho took a tumble and instead shot for goal?
If you want to get playing football, or any other sport for that matter, then it’s time to start eating your breakfast cereal. I’m not going to tell you it’s the most important meal of the day (even though it is), but eating your breakfast could make you more active.
