Lol, your are in a way better skill standard then other of us! I would like to learn the skills you can! Personally I think I should learn better the ATW with my rigth foot (bad foot).

Just a question for you Matt. I started on a new boarding school with football and sports as education last weekend. I played against a insane technical player who dribbled extremely fast! He is really good at freestyling and plays for the local A-team and are actually on Football manager 09.

So I wonder if you after doing freestyle and got so good that you actually has gotten much more technical in dribbling?

definitely - there is no doubt in my mind that freestyle helps ground moves [not to mention general soccer playing ability]

thats one of the reasons why i suggest freestyling to soccer players, because it changed me from a defender without ball control to a striker who kicked a fair few goals in indoor [in about a year]

Hello everybody.
I'm beginner soccer freestyler.

I've started training juggling for an hour just now. I spot IMPROVEMENT!
Suddenly, i feel a comfortable feel on the ball. When i juggle with my strong foot (right), I can get a slightly backspin on the ball and the ball goes where I wanted it to go. It goes straight up with a backspin. But when i try alternating juggling. I screwed on my weaker foot, I believe it doesnt get the feel of the ball. I can juggle with my right foot average 8-10 kickups.
Now I want my left foot to have a good feel of the ball. I was so happy, all my frustration goes away but I still need some motivation to keep on going.
Only just an hour of training today, and I get the feel of the ball on my right foot. But I will work on my left foot again this evening. Just now, I juggle with my sandals, because I dont have a good shoes, only have school shoes but scared of it getting dirty. When I juggle the 10th kickups with the sandals, the sandals get off my foot. Then i tried to tape it on my feet. It works well, i can juggle 8-10 kickups only with my RIGHT foot.

Sorry, long story.

Thank you to Rome_Leader and matt_a for helping me. Hope we can be friends forever.

Today while i was sitting out in a game of offense vs defense at practice i got 5 sitting juggles. considering that is the only time i have ever tried that i thought it was good.

nt means 'no touch'. Basically he did the trick without touching the ball after it was in the air.
