hey I have a similar injury, except I actually tore mine (I also have a discoidal meniscus). I'm going through physical therapy now since I had my surgery a month ago. Eventually you want to get your leg straight. You can do this by elevating it above your seat level. I've been out of soccer for abo...

You know him too!? Is his last name Plex?

RL, in addition to what everyone else has said, try to make sure you're getting a good supply of nutrition to speed up healing. Food rich in vitamins E and B should help out.

Slow it down and get closer to the wall. 3 yards should be good until you get better technique. As your technique improves, move further back, but keep the same mechanics as what you did 3 yards away from the wall.

I believe the score required largely depends on how everyone else in the state or nation scored. You should be in the top 10% or more. Also, be aware that a high score on the SAT is also a requirement.

Push through this "hump" and I guarantee that you'll come out on top in the end. Talent only helps in the beginning of football. Those who work the hardest and most effectively will be the better player in the end. As far as confidence on the field, that comes with maturity and experience. Try talki...

It's easy to judge people as a bystander.

There is a video about Landon Donovan going to Everton. He said something along the lines of "It's easy to watch on T.V. and say oh I yeah I can do that. But until you actually get there and play at that level, it's just fantasy."

Awesome stuff klc. My dream team would be pretty much the same as yours, except I'd put Zidane in because of his vision and command over the field.

You should be quicker than them. Maybe try passing it off the wall? Also, indoor is all about quick passing and moving off the ball, so dribbling isn't all you have to do.

Then I think you've exhausted our advice. If a you don't have any weaknesses, then pick a position that you think fits you best because our advice wouldn't help you at all.

If stamina is your weakness...I mean "something you need to work on", then winger isn't a great choice. As the above users have said, an ideal position for your current "strengths" would be somewhere in the center midfield. More than likely, you could play a supporting or attacking center midfield r...
