This drill is rubbish, if you want to improve fitness, then do proper fitness exercises such as sprinting. Dont waste time on these drills. I mean, football is all about being technical, look at Zidanem his slow but he sure as hell is better than those fags who try to outrun everyone.

I feel sorry for you. I live in Australia and its superb weather all yr around, it hardly rains in winter (global warming?). I think its pretty sh*t to have to dribble a tennis ball in the basement, I mean do you play soccer for the sake of it or do you play for the fun? My opinion is that you do fr...

Practice is a bit vague :? Basically if you want a softer touch, you have to learn to relax your muscles when the ball hits the part of the body your controlling the ball with. For example if your controlling with your chest, you have to relax your chest muscles and let the ball cushion on your ches...

Why should you be nervous? Its only a game! Have fun and do whatever you want. Beleive in yourself, get over your mistakes but learn from them and dont do the same mistake. Remember no ones perfect, even pros stuff up at times. For advice on practicing stepovers, I would say watch vids of pros doing...

I think some of you misunderstood me... What Im trying to say is Im used to and do play in cleats, but I hate playing in them compared to playing barefeet with my mates. I think its mainly because I use a lot of freestyle dribbling where you role the ball with your soles and I just hate the studs wh...

You have nice powerful shots and a very good volley. However I feel that in order to improve, you should take shots from a wider angle rather than always from a straight angle.

Anyways keep up the good work and keep practicing!

I saw your vid a while ago. Anyways this is justmy opinion ok? But the first thing I thought was this guy sped up the camera. It just looked really jerky and unrealistic. But if I am wrong about you, then good job mate! But if you did speed up or edit the footage, and only you can know, then you are...

I absolutely hate shoes

I just feel so comfortable playing with socks on or barefeet. Shoes seem to always get in my way, I just absolutely hate it! Does anyone also have these opinions?

You must approach this intention with an ambitious attitude in order to succeed. Send a letter to the club, if you get no reply, send another one. Set a goal for yourself, they cannot ignore your letters forever. Keep sending letters and eventually they will reply, whether the reply is positive or ...

Ok I normally dont like to post, but I just had to. I mean you people are pathetic, how can you think sending a letter to the club can get you a trial? While you all brag about how much of a god of football you are, you should reliase that the clubs dont read letters you send them. You wonder why? S...
