Welcome to my clay footballer theory. Like half of the theory's they are incorrect, but I personally believe this is the other half .
Arsene Wenger has a philosophy that a player is like a house.
In some respects This is right but in other aspects I feel that it doesn't have to be this way. Here's the link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8G8E01bn7J4
But this topic is not about arsene wenger's theory. Its about mine.
I Believe a Football player is like clay, and can be moulded into any shape and form possible.
From the age 0 - 5, The clay is very wet. and at this stage trying to mould a football player. The clay would just flop, loose structure, and go back to a lump of clay.
From the age of 6 - 11 the clay is wet. Not very wet. and is the best time to be moulded for the base structure. ( just in case people are not getting me and thinking im crazy - I am saying that for a young person it is easier to be taught and defined then someone older). At this time when moulded the purest of clay ( best of the younger's) are taken into academy's (Furnaces) I will continue speaking about this furnace theory later in the article.
From the age 11 - 14 the clay is beginning to dry. You do not want your clay to dry out to fast. because once dry if you try to structure it it would just snap and fall apart.
This is however can be a turning point. the clay is drying but can still be structured into every way possible!
From the age 15 - 20 the clay is very though but can still be moulded ( it will just require a lot of patients because moulding to fast would cause it do fall apart) Also because the clay is very though you can add very fine detail. ( with patients - positions, player personality etc )
From the age of 20 onwards.
the clay is to hard to structure or add any detail. trying to add detail will just force the clay to snap and break and will have to start all over again.
Starting again from 20 + is not a good idea career wise
I will add furnace theory to this guide later on
Hope you enjoyed this guide - Gucci

Its a little too late for that jk ..
I liked wengers speach, the man is so freakin motivating .
To be honest I think you can improve, tactically, technically, physically*, at any age unless your like 45...
If you have the hunger and go out and practice theres no doubt you'll improve yourself in spite of your age..
The more you wait the harder it is for you to improve but its still rather very achievable imho..
I used to be above average technically, and decent tactically when I was 15.. Then I started going to serious camps, and training with professionall coaches and I improved technically inmensely, and tactically as well...
According to wenger the age to improve technically is 7-14, and i was 15 turning 16 so from personal experience i differ..
