Re: Update

I realize the new layout looks a bit generic.
But this way we can upgrade the forums easily when a new version of phpBB is out.

Re: Contact Areas Of The Foot

Whatever works for ya, man. :)
The instep in general is good for hard, low shots.
The blue rectangle could work too - when you lean to the side or take volleys.
I think the exact contact area is not that important as
long as you drive your ankle well and have have good coordination.

Re: Contact Areas Of The Foot

Hey Robert, and welcome to the forums.
Sure, the blue area is good for striking the ball and for taking goal kicks.
Contact area is only half of it though. :)

Re: Beginner freestyler

Hello. I used to freestyle a little bit but never got really good (nothing beyond TATW). For me, it's more about style and making the moves "your own". What I mean is, there are freestylers who just perform simple tricks - but never falter and make it look effortless. Also, some people are good at g...

Re: Running advice

Hey, just keep training - you'll get fitter with time. Jogging long distance (over 20 minutes) is good for the heart. Alternating between sprints and light jogging (15-20 minutes) is good for building up your legs and endurance. Also, it depends on your age, if you're 13 or younger you probably want...

Re: Help Creating a Training Routine

Thanks, Shawn. Yep, I know what you mean. It's hard to practice on your own without getting distracted. It can be enjoyable too, once you start to see improvements. So yeah, just keep at it! :)

Re: Help Creating a Training Routine

Hello Shawn and welcome to EF. Hey sounds like a very ambitious plan. My suggestion would be to play organized ball as much as possible. Practicing alone is good during the off-season but you really want to be playing all year around if you plan to make in college and further. Anyways, nice to see s...

Re: Powell's back and looking to learn!

Hey Powell, glad to see you back.
Unfortunately things are going a bit slowly on the forums
but nevertheless - great to see that you're still freestyling. :)

Update

First of all the forum layout was changed. Don't be alarmed, everything is still here just running on an updated version of phpBB. In order to limit spam, I have also decided to delete unused accounts. This shouldn't affect users who have made at least one post. If you haven't made any posts, but re...

Re: Hello friend

Hey, don't think you can *really* quantify player ability. I suppose you can rate performances of players based on number of completed passes, assits, tackles but even then the stats could be misleading. Anyways, FIFA and the likes just use mathematical models that work for their particular game/sim...

Re: Defend against opponents shielding the ball

Hey, it depends on the situation. One thing you can try is slide tackling (if you're playing on grass). This is usually pretty effective when you are near the sideline. Other than that you want to keep moving and pressuring the ball - you don't want to be in the situtation where you are just ball wa...
