This the third and final video of The FA. English actor Ray livingstone takes part in this video and faces his expressionist side in the end. It is a great video and encourages understanding in the game.
I wonder who produced these videos for the FA.
“I speak a lot to Masche, I also speak a lot to Heinze. But it is hard to find Messi. It is easier to talk to Obama than to Lio [he joked]. But sometimes I find him.”
The days of this photo seem to be over. Will Maradona go to England is another question.
This is the second video of the FA’s football participation programme. Looking a lot like Guy Ritchie’s Nike commercial however it is much better because it offers much better insight of what football really is.
Nike was telling “Take it to the next level”, The FA says “Whatever level you are, find yourself a team”.
A great production, perfectly executed. Brilliant example for our federation.
“Ferrari have confirmed seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher will make a sensational return to Formula One to stand in for Felipe Massa.
German driving legend Schumacher still works for Ferrari as an advisor, but after Massa’s shocking injury in Hungary he will now get back behind the wheel once again.
Although the idea was originally rubbished, Ferrari have confirmed that Schumacher will come out of retirement to replace Massa – provided he passes a fitness test.
“Ferrari intends to entrust Michael Schumacher with Felipe Massa’s car for as long as the Brazilian driver is not able to race,” a Ferrari statement said.
“Michael Schumacher has shown his willingness and in the next few days he will undergo a specific programme of preparation at the end of which it will be possible to confirm his participation in the championship starting with the European Grand Prix on Aug. 23.””
This is the first of the football related videos i will share with you. It encourages players to respect the officials of the game.
Brilliant one. Good example for Turkish FA.

“A plimsoll shoe or simply plimsoll is a type of athletic shoe with a canvas upper and rubber sole, developed as beachwear in the 1830s by the Liverpool Rubber Company (later to become Dunlop). The shoe was originally, and often still is in parts of the UK, called a ‘sand shoe’ and acquired the nickname ‘plimsoll’ in the 1870s. This name derived, according to Nicholette Jones’ book “The Plimsoll Sensation” because the colored horizontal band joining the upper to the sole resembled the Plimsoll line on a ship’s hull, or because, just like the Plimsoll line on a ship, if water got above the line of the rubber sole, the wearer would get wet.”
