Just sit back and take it easy. If you work out now chances are you'll be tired for your big game. Only time I ever worked out whilst sick, turned out I had glandular fever and my doctor chewed me out for exercising as my spleen could have ruptured. Never again. Listen to your body. If it's saying you're tired and sick, lie in bed and rest.

Concerning diet, though, I admittedly have a lot of bad habits to break. First of all, I'm accustomed to eating a lot.

And, aside from the obvious things like junk food and sweets, are there any particularly bad (high in...

The oppurtunity to win large tournaments...

That is a walk out offence.

I love the sport, but the almost nonstop awful- actually comical- calls frustrate me to no end. In the final yesterday there were easily 25+ calls that I 100% disagreed with, from goal kicks...

In football, you have to "dive" if you don't think you can score after a foul, otherwise, you...
