Pickyourheadup:

Thanks for the great drills that I will surely add to my routine.

So instead of alternating between just fartleks and speed running, I can now add stair running so that I get variety throughout the week.

Thanks for taking the time to give me those great drills!

Pirlo.

He's the rock in the midfield for Milan. Him and Ronaldinho should be able to wreak havoc.


Diego vs. Arshavin?

Thanks PYHU, and MUFC1994! I'll probably just take out the bicep and forearm exercises and instead just repeat some of the chest/back/shoulder exercises instead. Stair drills? I do have access to my school stadium complete with stairs. So yes, I would be able to do stair drills. Do you have any good...

Kakasgotskillz: Thanks for the awesome advice. I'll adjust all of the sets and repititions. I'm looking at beginning this routine on Sunday. So I should have everything tweaked out by then. I'm desperately looking to improve. My technical ablility is okay, but I think when I'm fitter, faster, and st...

Come to think of it sir_alex, you are right in that it would be hard to put a "break" day in there. You're routine look strenuous, but great. When will you be working with the ball? Yeah, I think's it possible. I will have two hours of ball work after each of these physical training sessions. So in...

How would I split the week out? I have team training for two hours on Tuesday and Thursday. (If some of you guys have read my last post "Passing Game", then you can probably guess that my team training isn't strenuous at all) The weight room I'm using is only available for me Monday - Friday. I'd li...

Making the Difference

So, I have six days a week to train. Sunday - Friday (Match on Saturdays). Here's a general outline of my routine. It starts on Sunday, the day after my match, so that I can get a mindset that the match is the ultimate goal of the week, and that I start the cycle all over again the next day. My rout...

How about I just scrap the whole idea of a passing game with my teammates, and instead be selfish with the ball. Whenever I get the ball, I'll just dribble the ball and look for the runs my teammates are making, or I'll just create the opportunity myself. So, if I see a potentially defence-splitting...

Yeah, I'll try that during training tomorrow. But, for some of these guys, football is just another activity. They don't exactly live and breathe football. Nonetheless, I'll give it a go. Also, I probably should've just said my team plays like the USA. That would describe them a lot more. Even thoug...

Like I said, no racial remarks were intended. My favorite team personally is Manchester United, but I have a very strong liking for Barca's passing game. The English are perhaps the world's greatest footballers around. When I said "English-styled, playing long balls to nobody" I meant that as two to...

Yeah, right now I'm looking at other teams to play for in my area. But, the season starts next week so it's too late to change teams. I'm going to try to change my team's style. I mean we just played a tournament and we got killed. We lost our last game 1-6. I was running up and down trying to get t...

Join a new team or give up on that football team is my only advice. You cannot teach a load of no hopers how to play good football because chances are they are not clever enough to play football well and not technical enough to pull it off anyway. At the age of 16 only the best division one teams p...

Just for your information, the english game is not the long ball, the english game is the fast effective counter attack, we don't need your racial remarks on another countrys football style thankyou very much. I said English-styled because I've seen it called that on this forum. So it wasn't a raci...

Well, to be honest, the "style" my team plays right now isn't a style at all.

It's not as if they're trying to play the way they play, it's just that they don't know what else they can do.

Try talking to your coach about it privately. Do it very politely, not as if you are trying to tell him what to do. He's in charge of your team and obviously can change the way your teammates play. That said, your entire team won't be able to completely change its style over night. It will take a l...
