My hood is surrounded by 2 ghetto's yo!

Seriously, it's like the meeting zone of the 2 ghetto's. So basically everyone "in da hood" comes to my hood to meet.


It's frikken nuts. I just go to a wall of a former bottle depot close to a grocery store...

Hopefully the building isn't occupied soon though. :(

I was just thinking about something... (which is my first mistake :P )

My town has about 18, 000 people here. The side of town West of the canal is known as the nice area. Everywhere on the East is widely recognized as complete shit. Even though some good people live on the East too, if you say that's where you're from people automatically think you're a dirtbag. But, what I was thinking was that probably 10,000 people live on the West and 8,000 on the East. Well, if 6,000 of the people are actually dirtbags, that means 1/3 of my town is dirty. That's no good. :(

Anyway, back to the ultimate finishing drill. :oops: :wink:

I'd have to say I disagree. Thierry henry's skill wasn't brought on in two weeks. There isn't a magical solution to getting amazing at football. He must've practised every single day since he was 15 on his shooting, and all those hours counted up to what he is now, and of course he still trains alot. Sure, it would help if you practised this, but you've got to do it for years on end, just like the pros did.

I meant that you should notice the improvement in your finishing after 2 weeks.

Welcome back jdefoe!!

Anyone who thinks finishing can be achieved overnight must be really kidding themselves.

I practised what jdefoe stated in the drill (well, not exactly 50 shots to the wall) years ago and I can finish most of the half-chances after months of practice.

So, zizou, jdefoe's only trying to state what U can see improved.

You can mix it up, but I guess a trap and shot would be good. If you're close to a wall, it just comes at you too fast.

I'd say shoot it to one side and then shoot it to another (so it kinda makes it cardio-intensive), makes it more difficult for you to trap the ball effectively and give another decent hit at the wall
