a great guide thats completly useless unless it's made sticky and maybe added to the skills/dribbling section too. that would keep people from constantly posting about juggling.

now the only thing that this great guide is missing is where exactly you kick the ball (center) and what section of the foot...which im still trying to figure out....is it from the bottom of your big toe on? if not im doing it wrong..

as to the kicking of the ball i'm pretty sure that you just kick it so that you can keep in in front of you, so if its moving to far to the right you kick it a little bit more on the right side. but mostly you try and get clean touches in the center.

but i don't know i suck at juggling, if i'm completly wrong someone let me know and i'll delete this

I can add a "Juggling Mechanics" part, if you like. I will say where to kick the ball, talk about spin, normal problems and how to resolve them, etc. Does that sound like a good addition to the guide?

Yes, that would be awesome.

That would basically answer my question on my locked topic. :D

Also, that moving past the beginner stage, is it happening any time soon?

Just wondering, no rush.

Thanks for the great guide.

I will work on everything, however, I have been training a lot lately, and I don't know if I will finish everything today. I'm off to train...

umm... i have a question, i'm not actually in a soccer team or anything like that, i've never been in a soccer team but i still wanna learn how to juggle and freestyle. Is that weird? could i still do it? and i don't have that much money so i cant buy soccer shoes.... could i still juggle with regular shoes?

Ph8 it's not weird at all. Freestyling and football are honestly two different things with the same ball. Yes, many football players can do the basic moves, but true freestylers definitely don't consider them freestylers.

You can definitely still juggle with regular shoes, but football shoes definitely are a lot better. You may do better without shoes depending on how "tight" to your foot your shoes are.

Give it a go though man! I'm more of a football player than freestyler, but I practice it every once in a while and it's fun.

dude it will help, but you could juggle in any other comfortable sneakers, though I don't know if you would reach your maximum potential...

I don't freestyle, I can do like 5 moves or so, but I love to juggle to train my control, and the best shoes I juggle in, are my good old, comfortable, broken in training or playing cleats, with any other footwear, my results are less positive..

Look around the internet, search on youtube what other freestylers use, I'm pretty sure they mostly use football shoes of some sort, though I might be wrong, as I don't have any particular interest in it ....

You freestyle with a football and the best shoes to control a football, are of course football shoes..

So to answer your question: For best results, use football shoes, if your not that serious about it, and just mean to mess around, then any comfortable sneaker will do the job..
