Cristiano Renaldo and David Beckham have one. So too does Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga. Not to be outdone, Coca Cola, pizza, ice cream, and sour gummy worms have one as well. Even \’The Weekend\’ can be counted in this group. What do all these people and things have in common? They all have very popular Facebook pages.
After winning soccer\’s inaugural 2010 MVP (most valuable part) Tournament, I felt that the inside-of-the-foot (aka \’Inside\’) was also deserving of a Facebook page. Check out Inside\’s Facebook fan page called, \”Inside-of-the-Foot Soccer Fan Club\”.
I have always known the important role that the inside-of-the-foot has in soccer. But even the final results of the 2010 MVP Tournament surprised me. Sadly, many young players and their coaches don\’t understand its significance. My hope is that if I can get enough soccer players, trainers, coaches, fans, and soccer aficionados to join this club, we will be able to generate a groundswell of support for \’Inside\’ which will result in players and coaches having no choice but to recognize and accept the importance of the inside-of-the-foot. In doing so and then getting these young players more proficient with the inside-of-the-foot, we will be one step closer to achieving my goal of improving soccer in the United States.
To achieve this goal, I am asking for your help.
- If you understand and agree with the importance of the inside-of-the-foot, please become a fan.
- If you are unsure, read the many posts in this blog about this part of the foot. If I am able to convince you, please become a fan.
- Whether or not you have joined the club, please forward this post and the Inside-of-the-Foot Soccer Fan Club link to all your soccer friends and acquaintances.
- If you disagree with my belief, I would love to hear from you and learn the reasons why.
At the time of this posting, Renaldo\’s Facebook page had 3,253,043 fans. Beckham\’s page had 2,538,905 fans. My goal for \’Inside-of-the-Foot\’ is less ambitious … for now. My initial goal is to sign up 1,000 fans. Once this figure is reached, I\’ll add a zero to the goal total and go from there.
Join the Club and tell your friends! Thank you!
