Its extremely hard to have a perfect week in terms of performance. However its not impossible to have a perfect week in terms of effort. Dont get too down about it Collin. I would say wear your best, most comfortable boots, and maybe practice in your new squeaky ones a bit more by yourself and try t...

Its a nicely balanced routine, not too overcrowded, you've given yourself days off, thumbs up from me. Personally, I would replace the Wednesday Gym session in Week A with an acceleration and speed session, simply because I think that two gym sessions are perfect, and 2 sprint sessions per week are ...

Brilliant! Thank you so much for this - 4/5 from desire10 please mod'? Also, what is 'venting'? Also, any more ideas for rewards? I'm trying to think of one, but it's hard because I don't have much of a social appetite, the money I get is limited and valuable, and I don't want my reward to involve ...

Thanks guys :D , like Arsenal pointed out, theres been a lot of guys posting on the forum about their frustration at not being picked for team, or just feeling a little depressed about how football is going lately. I procrastinate quite a lot, mainly due to lack of confidence and I thought some of m...

MOTIVATION for TRAINING Hey guys, I thought that a guide outlining some strategies and tips to keep yourself motivated to stick with your training routines would be helpful to a lot of people on the forum.

Yes! As long as you keep them light. Think, a bit of juggling, some light dribbling, maybe a few shots at goal. Having a light session the day before a game is like doing a review for a test. Just mainly round off the the skills you've been working on during the week to keep them fresh for tomorrow,...

Being strong and explosive helps somewhat, but the main single factor that determines who wins the ball is who wants it more. Aggressions not a skill, its just something you've got inside you. If you step out onto the field actually wanting to win that badly, aggression will come. The best tip I can...

Our assistant coach used to be very hard on me, telling me off harshly for making little mistakes and letting everyone else get away with it. It used to piss me off, but it was really only because my coaches believe I have a lot of potential and they want to see me push myself and get into the senio...

My coaches tell me its the other way around, the harder you go in the less likely you are to be injured. Im not sure to what degree, but definitely the best thing you can do is focus %100 on the ball and only the ball, and put your body behind it. There are some very brave players who put thier body...

Theres a few things you could try. Number one is try mixing up your ball work routine. The most skillful players can apply thier skill in a variety of situations and you're not learning as quickly as you could be if you're doing the same drill over and over. Dribblings a big part of the game, but do...

My brother said the only person stopping me from suceeding is myself. My coach said the exact same thing to me a couple of years ago. It took me a while to figure out exactly what he meant, I thought he meant that I need to train harder or something at first. But basically, you've just got to step ...

It sounds as though you have the dribbling and touch for a striker, but finishing is really the key ingredient which makes any striker. All strikers are measured by the amounts of goals they score, so if you wanna move back to playing forward work your ass off and get your finishing up to scratch

Just to add to everything said here, don't forget to put bandaids on your feet (before!) particuarly around your heels or anywhere else you think you might get blisters while you're still trying to break them in. They might not seem like a problem, but blisters can be bitches :twisted:
