Collin, he scored the winning goal against Barcelona in the copa del rey. You don't get any bigger teams than that.

You say he's ineffective, well 50+ goals a season and taking the pichichi from Messi is a pretty impressive feat for someone who is supposedly "ineffective"...

Don't worry about asking questions, I enjoy helping people with specific questions. How to present the instep is one of the things I struggled with a lot. I don't know if you have seen NewBornProdigy's guide to striking the ball on these forums, but it goes a long way to explain it and should help i...

Are experts videos on youtube? If not that could be a starting point and it's free, would just take a little bit of time to set up. I wouldn't mind making an account on youtube and forwarding all the videos to people interested in football to generate traffic. The thing with EF is I think we have a ...

Woahhh, the Germans killing the Jews? Man the whole of Europe has a day of remembrance for the holocaust every year. That took place roughly 60 years ago. That is like two generations, most of the people who were there when it happened are dead. 9/11 on the other hand is only 10 years ago. Not to be...

That was a very deep personal reflection. However, I do think you are confusing vanity with jealousy, selfishness and also self-consciousness. Vanity is when someone glances in the mirror because they admire themselves, and actually find themselves appealing to look at. There are two causes of this,...

Hi, it's good to see new members on the forums :D You're quite right, as with almost everything in football, it is far easier said than done. The key is to just practise. The best method I found was to use a wall and get used to the motion of hitting the ball, maintaining good technique, but also ma...

Juggling with your weaker foot can really boost its co-ordination, and then everything comes easier after that. Once you can dribble with a ball with your weaker foot very well, move onto a smaller size football, or a tennis ball. At the moment I'm trying to learn to juggle with a tennis ball, if yo...

The first ever football game I went to, this happened. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klnG880TYOc Skip to 2:50. The best cameras and microphones in the world could not capture half of the magic, half of the atmosphere, or half of the electricity around the stadium when that happened. Easily my most ...

Unfortunately Barcelona let him go.

It is scary to think of how good the rest of Barca's academy must be if they can afford to let a player like that go.

He has signed for Manchester City unfortunately.

I dunno, the drill on the Nike app tells you to use either the inside of outside of the foot whilst controlling the ball. I suppose it's probably because you can't turn or redirect the ball very well if you control the ball with your laces.

Scotty you wouldn't be suprised if Ronaldo benches that or if collin benches that? :lol: P793 everyone has to start somewhere.

^ I agree, the athletics club near me do coaching and they say that running 100m you should be so relaxed that if you start to dribble as you sprint, you are doing it correctly. It is common sense, using your muscles in a coordinated fashion not only results in greater efficiency, as your muscles ar...
