Dw it was just the capitals made me :? :lol:

Hmm my technique is far from perfect. I can hit long passes beautifully, and in training my technique for shooting is good, but in match situations I automatically rush and mess things up.

Is that sarcasm lol? I do realise that it is obvious using the correct technique will make your shots more powerful and more accurate, but I felt some posters might be interested in the actual physics and mechanics behind it.

Passing and Shooting Power - Striking the Ball

Most people, particularly younger players, often struggle with their long passing and shooting when going for power. The most common cause for this problem is the fact that most people try to tense up and/or "kick" the ball. Both of these actions are very counter productive to not only power, but ev...

1. You said your pigment will eventually come back? So you will be fine in the future. 2. You can have a girlfriend even if you don't do anything physical down stairs. When you get to know her you might find out she doesn't care anyway if you explain to her that it isn't an STD or something. 3. If i...

Best drill for me is make a square zone out of cones that is 5m by 5m in size. Stand in the middle of the square, flick the ball up, juggle it 4 times and on the 5th juggle kick the ball about 15-20 foot up in the air. As the ball comes down control it with either the inside of your boot or the outs...

Barca need another midfielder. After losing Abidal and Puyol last season to injury it completely crippled the team, meaning players like Busquets and Masch had to play CB to fill in than their proper position, which is fine until we have no one to put in the midfield. Would be good to have someone t...

Pfft, I really need to work on my juggling if you guys get to 1000+ ever training session.

Anyone here tried juggling with a smaller ball/tennis ball?

I might try and start dribbling with this small spongy ball I have, reckon it will do any good?

It's the unbelievable pace they have on the ball which makes them unstoppable. When you have that level of control, you don't even need to be exceptionally fast or strong to go past players. All Maradona/Messi/Cruyff do to dribble, is to keep the ball close to them taking a touch with every stride. ...

The more mistakes you make the more you learn, that is never more true than in football man. If you listen to the guy on the video the crucial thing is that he says he looks for a player that hits you between the eyes, but also does the simple things right. I interpret that as him saying, yes go out...

I'd love to see your blog and watch your progress. Good luck. The best advice I can give you is to train from this second now until the trial as intensely as you can. Don't over-estimate how much time you have, September seems far away now, but it will creep up on you really fast, and when you get t...

I hate that formation...
Definitely go with forward, that is the closest position to your true position, just bare in mind you are going to have to adapt to how they want you to play forward. Depending on the coach, you might have to be playing as a target-man/ centre forward.
