I've found a tennis ball is great for inside the house. The ball won't damage any walls like a full size can, and it helps technique.

You all the technical drills you normally do with a full size ball, with a tennis ball.

Not much to add after Met's post :wink: Some quick tips for Striker: -Make lateral runs---not just straight runs up and down. Lateral runs help open up the field and create angles for passes. -As Met said, get out there---The only way you can begin to "see" the space and learn to make the ...

The professionals that you are talking about are much better than you at that "unecessary" skill of dribbling at high speeds. Until you're better than them, I'd suggest you practice it anyway. In the end it will help. What all professionals excel at is Technique. Once you've gotten techniq...

Working with a team to accomplish a comon goal, but to have fun along the way. Creativity. Space.

It's about playing pick up games, and meeting people who don't even speak the same language as you, but you get along and find each other on the pitch.
I like that Scott.

I tried resizing it in Photoshop. The problem is that the picture is square. If I were to change it to any size (and keep the resolution/pixels), it would still be a square. So say I changed it to 2.2 inches, which is the height of your current sig, the picture would be 2.2 x 2.2 I could change it a...

It's up to you and what method gets you the most results.

I usually devoted a small portion of practice to everyskill, and mainly focused on a certain skill for that day or week. Practicing every skill (even if only a little everyday) will help keep you sharp.

It could also be where you are striking the ball with your foot. If you want more curve, strike it in the G-D-E area. and make sure the ball is struck in the Lower-Left/Right Third . Remember that your body position also affects the ball. Leaning back with a wide stance will produce a higher ball. H...
