Thereโ€™s a great ESPN documentary called โ€œBrokeโ€ about American athletes and their financial difficulties after retirement. Eye-opener.

But it's quite sad seeing that cycle repeat itself, generation after generation, but again none of my business what they do with their bread, it just is what it is.

Thanks will have a read. Also so many loose all the ยฃยฃ within five years of retirement because of poor financial education and bad spending. Someone told me the other day that in Holland they keep half the players money and save it for them for later, don't know if true...

To be fair to the states at least in their system you HAVE to study, so athletic talent can be a gateway to something else if you don't go pro...

It was ok for me and a few others that played at the level without going pro as we had other options, but nuff man left or was neglected out of football (by family, circumstance, ends and club) and went back to the road...

You see my own experience playing for multiple pro clubs as a yout and seeing so much talent go to waste for a whole host of possibly controllable reasons makes me know a club that understands where a lot of young players r coming frm and what they really going through is needed

'Yo fam, none of my business what you do with your p but I wonder if you've ever considered organising the man dem to get a small club when you retire as a newer generation of youts from where your from could really benefit from a club run by ppl that know where they coming frm'

But something is better than nothing... and the post training feeling must be the second best feeling in the world.

So if I am feeling run down or I have just got off a flight I'll still train but I'll just do some stretching or light shadow work and leave it there, whereas before I'd be like nah you gotta go ham every time and either pick up small injuries or run myself down too much...

I will say this, as the years progress I have gotten much better at listening to my body and not overtraining, when you used to be a full time athlete this is actually harder to do than it sounds....
