2014-01-05 Is this person really a recruiter?:

Hi Alice,    He may be an independent recruiter / agent but I would guess this is a scam - don't give this person any money.    All FIFA approved agents are listed here:    http://www.fifa.com/aboutfifa/organisation/footballgovernance/playeragents/list

2013-11-10 how many cities are represented in the bpl:

Hi Ben,    I assume by BPL you mean Barclays Premier League. In which case I make it 12.     This breaks down as follows:    London (6) - Arsenal. Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Tottenham, West Ham

2013-08-06 Substitutes:

Hi Richard,    There is nothing to stop a manager putting reserve or youth team players on the bench. They could use the tea boy as long as they registered him as a player for the applicable competition

2013-03-18 Scam:

Ozzy,    This is definitely a scam.    Do not give this person any money and tell them you have contacted your local police and complained to FIFA about them. They'll probably ask for money for insurance/medical

2013-03-08 LOLz:

That's a tough one.    Your calm manner might give you the edge. He's quite short-tempered and violent and would probably get a red card at some point during the game. Plus, you're excellent on crosses
