I like Hargreaves. There has never been an England player quite like him for a while now. A DM is a very sort after position nowadays, especially when you can do it on your own. Barry always needs someone next to him. It will be a struggle for him to get anywhere near the first 11 but due to the Man...

Today I decided to take a day off and just relax and watch Manchester United play some football. Turns out, so did the Arsenal players.

How did Jenkinson get sent off and Arshavin didn't?

I think Rome's advice is good but doesn't apply to your situation. Once you are in, I think that's where it's most effective. I think it was the occasion that got the better of you. It was your first time and I think the talk with the coach really help settle you down a little bit. It's not experien...

Ok, I'll give you simple things to do. They are so simple you'll probably think they don't work. And because you think they won't work, you'll probably won't do them. And becuause you won't do them, you'll have another bad game, and probably make another thread asking the same thing, in another way....

This is a big no no. IF you want fast feet why not just spend time with the ball? If you want to run quicker why not strengthen or sometimes loosen up your running muscles? Plyometrics are at maximum a 3 day a week activity. You should have some strength conditioning don already and plyometrics is t...

3 miles is ok. What you do is, Early Preseason, ease yourself back, 3 miles 3 times a week for 4-6 weeks. You probably won't be able to do that straight away but build up to it. Anymore is a waste of time. Then Late preason you want to cut that down to once a week, instead focus more on interval whi...

I feel you're pain too. Currently I'm rebuilding my back from about a decade of an injury that never healed properly causing me to never perform to my best. I'm about 3 months to returning. At least you can kick a ball, I can't do anything that impacts my back outside classes which is pretty much ev...

Your instep drives, you are leaning back too far. The reason you sky them is because you hit the ball on the way up. Check klc's guide. It's the most detailed guide I ever seen. Your freekicks, I can't really tell the technique. If you are using Beckham's technique, again lots of guides on youtube. ...

Keep joking about it. Keep saying you are thinking about it. Keep bringing it up every once in a while, wear them down. It won't be such a shock when you show them. That's what i'm doing. I'm getting a left shoulder up to lower half of bicep. It will look black from far away, but up close it's gonna...

Back heel penalty in an international match

The title says it all. It was a Lebanon vs UAE. He may get punished, I'm not sure by who exactly. I think it's a funny thing to do in training but in a match, that's just pushing it. Also, is it techincally a penalty? I thought you couldn't stop wants you take a run, but I think you can slow down, j...

Well when you play sports you sweat and therefore you lose water along with a few minerals and obviously, sugar. The High GI is to replenish those blood sugar levels as quick as possible. That's what a High GI means, the time it takes for the food to get absorbed into into the bloodstream. ( For exa...

A mixture is best. Also depends on where your season is. For example, early preseason, you hardly have the stamina to be playing many pick up games or the touch. however closer to the season, you want to be playing more pick up games to get you match ready, considering the speed should be much quick...

Re: Dribbling coordination

Let say there no pressure shoud i dribble and look at the ball and glance up occasionnaly or it better to look up and glance down at the ball ocassionally? Depends on the situation. If you are breaking down the wing with no defender in sight, it's better to just stare down at the ball with heavy to...

England were billed as favourites. Do you know what happens whenever England gets called a favourite in a tournament? They never win. It's like they have a premature ejaculation of qualifying exceptionally and having no juice when it actually counts. All the teams bar England fielded 1 striker and 1...
