    Even some of the best ( Thierry Henry for example) are allowed to occasionally use their hand

    On the other side... How would that be physically possible?
    If you have 2 , you stand with 1 and kick with the other ....similar to nick folk's kicking action

    Good players can interchange their standing and kicking feet. I.e. They can kick with both feet

    I'd expect nothing less from a Gooner.

    These little Fatty gaffes are always enjoyable. But it serves as proof that nobody really cares about soccer here. We all jump on the bandwagon every four years just to get kicked in the balls like last night. In two weeks we will be all talking about football again. Francesa's show reflects that. He can never speak of soccer again and still be #1 in the ratings.

    I have to say, this was really overblown. Most players do have a predominant leg, some players favor a leg to the point that it's a weakness to go to the other side. It's not totally unrealistic to think that soccer would be like football or baseball where a guy only throws with one arm (or even baseball and tennis where most players hit from the same side)
