He's pleaded for fans to lower their expectations, and believes they should be making semi-finals with their talent at ...

All the training you do will not be useful if you aren't doing it for the right reason nor putting it into matches. Play as many matches as you can. Pick up, 5/6/7-aside, if theres not an even number go on the team with less members, 11 v 11. Pick a position and stick to it. You said you've played f...

Well you need to make an effort to include them in your game. Try it out in training on different players. Just say I want to do 5 stepovers. Tell the coach afterwards aswell saying I'm just trying out a new skill and sorry about losing the ball a few times. And gradually when you build up enough co...

Yea this forum is dead. The most talked about topic is "First word that comes to mind" or whatever. Some topics go on for about 6-8 posts and then just die completely. Unless two people start arguing and someone makes fun of one of them and then its forgotten why the thread started. I prefer to cal...

Initially. but you now past that stage. You need to increase the intensity of the work outs.

This is football when do you jog 1 mile? Make it specific to football.

It kind of already is. Barca for example, have the wingers go central, full backs push up and centerbacks go really wide into full back positions. a big gap is left in the middle where busquets mainly comes in to pick up the ball from the keeper and moves it into midfield. Not a traditional sweeper ...

Thought I should restart an old thread I had some thoughts about.. Was going through my posts. Inverse wingers seem to have more effect in the play, just like in the WC. You are right. The cause of this is a change in tactics. The Cm's are a lot more defensive minded. Meaning there is space to come...

Back onto the topic, Douglas, do you know why there are so many boots in the market? Because everyone wants a choice. Not every atriker wants superflies. Not every midfielder wants predators. Some people buy into the technology crap. Some people just think this technology is a load of bulox and stic...

Hmm, I'm not a fan of the straight line because communication can break down. I feel it's better for the three players to be a couple of paces infront of the defender who has the most forward player meaning only he steps while the others will provide the cover. NBP, you've said the whole line steps,...

Thanks again, Met and Scott I've given it a thought and I think I'm much better off practicing a well timed counter-attack with an organized defense and good defenders. Seems like the cons outweigh the pros when you play an offside trap. Basically, it all comes down with the sort of team you have. ...

Yeah it's a very clever attacking player who is trying to mess up the offside trap. That's how they beat it. You can never be certain about anything in football. In fact, that's the only thing you can be certain about. If you get me. Onto the offside trap. You want the defence line to push up and yo...
