I'd like some more opinions if anyone has anything to say.

Thanks for the input so far!

Google brings me most of my traffic, I had to work a bit on the SEO. Apart from that, I have a few sites that refer to me and my YouTube videos bring some.

It's not super-successful, but the ads bring me some nice money.

EF, thoughts on this?

I live in a fairly small sized town, not too small though and there's actually quite a nicely sized soccer community. I know a few groups that organize pick up games every once in awhile which usually have good turnouts, but they aren't organized too often -- maybe once every two weeks or so. I'm 16...

I agree with Panchester. He's obviously jealous of you. Be the bigger man and just ignore him.

I guess I'll do a routine then. I have tried routines before, but I remember feeling like it was a bit useless but now I'm going to try to spend the sessions on specific skills for the whole time and not just a bunch of stuff I had written down. @arsenalfc08 I am playing club now. It's a decent club...

Thanks collin. I'm going to keep working obviously, but some days I just feel what I talked about in my post really strongly and it really discourages me. I'll probably make Varsity next year, but the thing I need to work for is playing time and obviously good performances. My HS team is VERY good, ...

Really discouraged, need some advice

I'm not too sure exactly what to say in particular so I'll just give a brief overview of my football career so far. I am from the USA, 16 years old now. I play attacking center mid and outside mid. My mom did get me into the very bottom level of organized soccer when I was young, but I only played a...

The BEST Training

Haven't posted in awhile but I wanted to see what you guys thought about this. My parents came back from their business trip in Germany a few days ago (side note: they brought me back the New London CL Finale Ball!) and were telling me about the soccer scene there. My dad said that there's just thes...

Ways to boost my confidence?

Are there any sort of exercises or programs I can use to make myself more confident? In playing situations at least. I know its sort of a vague question, but it really affects how I play. I need to be more confident, and it's not as easy as just telling myself I am good. If anyone knows of any exerc...

New routine - Please Review

I've just developed a new routine for me to use during these last few weeks of summer before the season begins. Here it is, please critique it so far. I will be training with this entire routine every day excluding Sunday, where I will just do light ball work. Warm Up Stretching (10 minutes) Light j...

!!! Odd that I found this now. I've been doing serious training this whole summer, and went to our team camp for HS soccer last week. I really noticed the benefits of my training, and my coach did also, as he told me I am being considered for a place on Varisty this year! Huge accomplishment if I ma...

Panchester, I agree with what you're saying that it isn't the boot, but the player. But I didn't buy these expecting better performance, I bought them because I read many reviews which said they were extremely comfortable. My only complaint with the vapors I always used is that they weren't too comf...

How to shrink my Copa Mundials?

I just got my pair of Copa Mundials, which are excellent, but I'd prefer them a bit tighter to my feet. Is it possible to shrink them? If so, can you post a feasible method of doing this? Thanks! They're kangaroo leather, by the way.

I'd like to have a try with Adidas boots, I've only ever really used Nike before. I'm a quick dribble/pass sort of player, and shooting is a bit of a weakness for me. Vapors don't do much for my shooting. Its between Copa Mundials and adiPURE III's. They're both very comfortable, and good boots for ...
