These folks at @ball_gecko legit make better content than a huge swathe of the rest of the field. Feels unfair that they just started and are killing the game like this, what now happens when some time passes? Sheesh!
Ball Gecko saved my life! They got me interested in the beautiful game again. The stories and gosh the graphics! BG saved my love for the game.
Solid content. Amazing takes. Can't wait to see Ball Gecko popular.
A lovely platform for football news. Great stories and the quality of the video is top-notch.
