How would you rate your own knowledge of the game?
Which areas would you say are your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to understanding the sport or discussing it with mates or on line?
Try to be as honest as possible.
Personally speaking, I would say I have a very good historical knowledge of the game both in Britain and throughout Europe, a strong understanding on tactics and formations and how they have developed over the last 100 years or so, I understand the financial aspect of football resonably well, and have a keen interest in football in communist Eastern Europe between 1945 and 1990.
I watch mainly English and German football, and therefore my biggest weaknesses are knowing players who don't play in these leagues, particularly ones who aren't established internationals, who play in these leagues. There are lots of players mentioned on these forums, and by my younger cousin (21 years old), who I've not heard of.
So how about other people?!
