You've already described two instances of a directional touch. pivoting 180 degrees cushioning it the inside of my free foot Is the clock turn that you are wondering abou...

Just the clarify, the new poll had 8 (eight) votes and not 4 as was claimed. Panchester's feelings, however, are understandable considering the circumstances.

Yes, I heard a pop. I then hobbled over to the sideline and noticed my knee was extremely swollen. From what I remember, I was near the sideline of the field with a defender on my back. I got the ball and noticed a teammate making a run up the line. I pivoted on my right foot and made a quick turn a...

IIN6 your symptoms definitely sound like a tear. I tore my meniscus last year and I put off getting an MRI. Your situation, granted is less obvious, but I would still suggest you get an MRI scan as that is the only way to confirm a tear. Physical therapists and doctors can guess, but the MRI will co...

Take note of the following: -Plant foot direction and distance from the ball -Plant leg, how much it's bent -Balance -Hip direction -Shoulder position (over or behind the ball) - Striking foot -Striking leg, amount of bend -W...

It looks good, now get out there and do it! :D

Remember TG's advice:
All that training can pointless if you are sore/unrested for your games...
...or you've overtrained and set yourself up for potential injury.

If you added the votes wrong, then why not keep the polls open 1 more week like you did last year instead of erasing all the votes and starting it again? This poll had 4 votes in total. I alone had 4 votes in the first vote. If a candidate was added in the middle of a poll, then the previous voters...

Are there walls in your indoor league (I assume there are)? Use the wall to pass off of Use the wall as a really bad defender who can't control the ball :wink: If you're close to the goal and have no shot on goal, shoot it off of the wall and hope one of your teammates will get it. Play as hard as y...

I agree with shahensha and nick. Here are some specific drills/explanations: Doing top of the ball touches (as many as you can do in 60 seconds) is a great drill for quick feet. I believe the EF record is around 180 touches (with the balls of your feet, alternating feet each touch) Also, doing stair...
