Tell me, in a match, do you play against cones or humans? Play more matches. If you can't, do things that you can transfer very easily onto a pitch. Shooting, passing, recieving. Dribbling, just depends on the situation. For example, I think dribbling is like learning the car. You can learn the cont...

That's why it's always difficult to compare players from different eras. Nowadays, defenders are more athletic, they've seen countless videos of that player and they know what they're gonna do when they are up against them. What has worked in the past, what didn,t. And if you are a high quality defe...

Using one body part rather than the whole body is always going to be less effective. Plus defenders are taught to look at the ball so they won't pay attention to the foot much, but will move if you start moving the whole body. Lets look the stepover as you mentioned. Scenario 1: If you just use your...

You can't do it with alot of pace or you'll lose balance. Let's say you are right footed, come at decent speed. Move the ball to the away to the left, with your foot on the back and to the side, as its gets further away, your foot slides around it. This where you sell the move, leaning into it as if...

Usually most people mess up the normal two footed one, like not enough pressure to drag the ball or mistiming it. Any decent defender can read the first part and presents an oppotunity to tackle and because you are unstable, you are like to lose the ball. I think it's an instinctive move, as in you ...

It's because you lost your first battle trying to be cute and whatnot. I said the last thing in my other post to you that you had to go in hard. It won't hurt. Look at Ramires, he wasn't sure of himself because midfield is combative in the Premeir League but he is playing better because he ain't sca...

Yeah there was swearing involved, saw a clip of it yesterday. I personally agree with the ban because at the end of the day children of all ages watch footy games and hes meant to be a role model , so swearing at a camera wont do his public image much good. I don't agree with this. Just because som...

It depends on formation of the team and what your role is in that midfield. General tips include having at least one center mid sitting infront of the defence. You have to work in tandem. Lots of communication and knowing how each other plays so you can pool your strengths and cover each other's wea...

I watch a fair bit of Brazilian football as I enjoy their philosophy of allowing skillful player humiliating less skillful defenders its good to watch. Really? That seems harsh.

Develop some OCD. Everytime I leave the house I'm like keys, wallet, phone. Anytime I leave an area, I double check. I'd rather be late somewhere and have all my stuff than be early and forget stuff because I spend time fretting over where I left them. Also on desire10's advice, I'd take it one step...

CM is one of those positions that huge on experience i would place a high value on getting in as many pick up games as possible more than anything. This is probably the most important thing. You will progress much further than in training alone. It's because you should develop composure. You will r...
