Shut up and listen!

In the new issue of Australian FourFourTwo out on March 12, we let the players do the talking - and we shut up and listen. So should you...

Leo Messi, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Luis Suarez tell us their secrets, and give us an insight into what a normal day is actually like when you're one of the best footballers in the world. You'll be surprised...

And you might remember the Socceroos JUST WON THE DAMN ASIAN CUP. So we asked them how they did it. And they told us...in their own words. Hear Mat Ryan talk us through the pre-tournament camp, Trent Sainsbury on the group stages, Massimo Luongo on the knockout stages and that final, then hear Ange Postecoglou talk us through his masterplan. It worked.

Meanwhile another man with a plan is Josep Gombau at Adelaide United whose Reds-volution could see his side making a tilt at the Championship title this year. Where did he come from, what's he doing, how's he done it...and how long is he hanging around for (SPOILER ALERT: Not as long as fans might want...) We've got it straight from the Spaniard's mouth. 

Plus in the second half of our Red Men Talking special, United and Socceroos keeper Eugene Galekovic talks us through his life in football, on and off the field. Don't miss it...

Meanwhile Roy Keane takes us inside his on-off again romance with his beard, oh and also a bit about his glorious but controversial career as both a player and a manager. As always, he pulls no punches in his frank one on one interview...

Stewart Downing gives us a Masterclass on technique and we also chat to Travis Dodd on life after football and find out what cartoon characters Antony Golec most sees himself like.

Plus we also look at the bizarre goings-on at this year's Africa Cup of Nations and look at whether the away goals rule has past its sell-by date.

It's a pretty special issue. Don't miss it... On sale NOW in newsagents or delivered to your door (before anyone else if you are a subscriber), and online AT CUT PRICE (with tons of extra international content!) from iTunes, plus Google Play and Zinio too!
