Well, I would like to know whether I should buy the white F50's (Ale wears them) or those greyish predators (Beckham wears them).

My role in my team is just like ale's: I want to be a support striker but I'm always forced to play the playmaker-role. I tend to choke a lot too. So, what do you think is the best choice? Knowing that the F50's are 30 euros cheaper as well..

I refuse to spend $300 on a pair of footy boots, so I settle for the humble Nike Tiempo Premiere. It works fine for me, though probably the best pair of boots I've tried out are my friend's Umbro Xai's. I played great that game :)...hmmm maybe it's time for a change :D

For my club team I play as an attacking midfielder, but I am at my best when I have a free role to move anywhere on the pitch and create chances. I love that free role; its awesome to play like that, and not having to worry about coming back to mark as often.

I have worn the Adidas Predator for 4 years now, buying a new pair every season. I love the Predator boots, and will never change to a different maker or shoe. The F50's are new, so there might be some kinks in it, so I would of course choose the Predator. I hope they come out with a pure white version of the new Preds.

Well considering I have played about 25 Varsity high school matches in the fall, a few matches for my club team in November, and a few matches this spring for my club team, you can see how they can get worn out. Not to mention practicing almost everyday from August to November for my high school team, and the harsh weather conditions we play in, those boots have to endure hell.

Hey, if you want an old pair, I do have last year's pair which are in good condition. I probably could have gone without a new pair this season, but I wanted to put my name on my boots for my senior year. My other Preds are in good condition though, and they don't have "Beck 10" on them.

For real? I'd love to have a one year-old pair of Preds!

What's your shoe size? :D
I think it is 10 and a half if I'm not mistaken. They are last years Preds, not the new ones, but they still are very nice.

If you're serious about this, I am too :)

I'm not too sure about my shoe size in US, but I'll take a look when I get home (The shoes I have on now don't have the US measurement)

If they're on the house, I'll pay for all the shipping costs etc. of course ;)

Nah man, I don't even play soccer.........

Just kidding. :D

Okay, I checked the boot size and it says:

US: 10.5

UK: 10

FR: 44 2/3

JP: 285

Those are the sizes that they give.

What, do you want a catch? Hmmm, have any Juve jerseys you want to give? :D

I think that you should have no problem with a 10.5 then, because I should be wearing just a 10.

Beckham's Predators are sexy, but there's something I like about DP's white, grey and blue F50s. Me and my bro have always had the same boots but both of us are finding it kind of annoying and since he's planning on getting the Preds I'm gonna go for the F50s. My idol wears them, I quite like the colour scheme (goes well with my club team's jersey) and they're cheaper than the Preds.
