get the defender moving the wrong way or put your body between the ball and the defender and wait for support, make a nice turn or draw a foul.

try jogging and increase your pace while keeping the ball in the air, try making a few touches and then knock it high into the air as if going over the head of a defender and maintain control of the ball. There are lots of things to do if you are bored with your routine. I also like to imagine there...

most of the time you use this move moving along one of the wings. The trick is to get as close as possible to the defender, make a quick touch to one side (i like to fake going inside) and make the inside run past the defender to retrieve the ball. The move is effective because the defender has to t...

i don't know if it's the players to blame. I think the fact that he's been there.. in that position as a franchise player he can speak from experience so it's not just speculation. I doubt he went out into the streets and cried out those comments, someone probably asked him what he thought.

i don't know about 9.8 but don't let his stocky build decieve you.. roberto carlos has explosive speed and as far as fastest players.. the difference between #1 and #5 in the world of soccer is probably like 0.x seconds maybe like Henry, Martins, Odonkor for Germany?

I must say however would it hurt him to smile once in a while, when i watch him it doesnt seem like the game brings him any joy at all. not every player is like ronaldinho. I like the fact that he is an intense competitor who has very high expectations of himself (so does ronnie of course) and does...

ankle support

i have weak ankles and was wondering if there is anything out there between using a brace and taping them ... some kind of slip-on band that secures the ankles but isn't too bulky since i have tight-fitting cleats.

and if so where can i get my hands on them

bingo. You want to use something small so that you can develop a precise touch and then switch to a size 5er and see how much easier it is to control.

sometimes its good to play tight on the wings and the draw the defenders wide and open up some space for your teammates. When you get the ball in that situation chances are there is someone open inside or to the far wing and you can just control it quick and make the pass.

thinking positively is important. You don't want to get down on yourself and play in that scared to lose instead of desire to win frame of mind. With me when i'm playing well its not about looking to score but looking to win every situation. Scoring is sometimes a distant goal and its doing the righ...

Re: what makes ronaldinho the best????

If you ask me I have to say that Henry is by far the best player on the planet right now and has been for a couple seasons. the margin of skill between players at the level of Henry and Ronaldinho and Zidane etc is so minimal that nobody is by far the best. Ronaldinho can dominate and lead at all l...

stepovers require a few things... i think perfect practitce makes perfect so watch how the pros do it, maybe slow it down step by step and try and implement what you see. The way i practice them is just simple up and down changing direction and speed, head up. Also be sure to sell the fake... really...
