    He’s an idiot and that’s probably why he’s no longer in management 😀

    Does he actually scout for EPL teams, or has he just told you that while peshed and you believed him?

    A right footed player will kick with their right foot. Just watch the football on TV and listen to the commentary and it will be obvious.

    Your pal is stringing you on. Drop his name and let the hive mind discredit him for you.

    what an idiot – the foot you hit the ball is the foot you are footed
    Imagine playing on the left wing – you would need to be right footed to cross [ with your left

    I imagine he was BS you about everything

    This sentiment has been voiced by others in the past…

    Yes he does, I know this to be true.

    Drop his name and let the hive mind discredit him for you.

    I would but he has a habit of instigating libel cases…

    I think he might be pulling your leg.
    Not sure which one.

    I have two left feet when it comes to football but would still be classed as right footed as that is the one I use to kick the ball…

    Im not sure what exactly he’s getting at. I think it generally considered the foot you kick with is the dominant one.

    But he does make the point that often your legs/arms strengthen to learn certain things.

    For instance the ball is in a bit in front of me and I want to use one foot to pull it closer. If I do this with the right it feels fine. If I want to do this with the left, its not the left foot that feels weak and funny. Its my right leg can’t seem to support me leaning as far forward as my left can.

    Like wise when I jump forward I always think I want to land on my right foot first as its stronger. But if I force myself to swap round its not so much I cant land properly on my left leg but I cant seem to get the power/timing to jump as far off my right leg.

    This kinda supports his theory.

    But I think what he’s really trying to say is your legs specialise in different abilities and arguably the left is strongest as this is the one that needs to stabilise (or power for jump) the rest of your body.

    Really you should train yourself to be able to do both on both.

    PS I agree with you on the bike I tend to use my right more than my left, but I suppose pedalling is more akin to kicking rather than the stabilising actions your left leg performs playing footy.

    Bit of semantics really, isn’t it?

    To almost everyone, you’re right footed if you prefer to kick a ball with your right foot. When Johnny Wilkinson drops a goal with his left foot, he’s kicked it left footed, with his left foot. I can see the argument about dominant strength, but he’s got an uphill battle if he wan’t everyone to change how they refer to footedness.

    Not sure if I’m a bit wierd. I kick a ball with my left, surf/snowboard regular (left forward) high jump, take off from my right, Long jump, left ( I think – can’t quite remember or imagine it for certain. Left forward on the bike feels more natural.

    Anyone else as mixed up as this?

    Stand on your left foot and kick with your right, or vice versa?

    The reason that I ask is that I have an acquaintance who is a former professional football manager (and I’m talking some pretty big clubs here, not your lower league lot), and he still scouts for one of the Premiership teams.

    Now, I maintain that I am right footed – if I kick a football, it’s nearly always with my right foot because I have more control with it.

    However, he says that I’m left footed, because I’m supporting my body weight on my strong leg. I can see his point, but when I’m on my bike I feel like my right leg is doing more work when pedalling so surely my right leg is the stronger, so I’m right footed?

    Or am I just weird?

    Your mate is talking BS. End of.
