I have a complex routine for weights, results for the routine are pretty much seen week in and week out. The problem is probably my knees, they can't handle speed + ladder + soccer week in and week out, so I pretty much only do speed work once every other week. Plus, Fridays I tend to lazy out and not do my routine.

Further Comments
I'm improving lots, strong, more skillful on the ball, passing is inconsistent at times. I'm hoping to continue to train and improve for university and to impress everyone around me.

id focus less on weights and more on ball skills ( both control,passing, and shooting) and more speed agility and endurance.

I agree focus more on ballwork. You should do ballwork nearly everyday because if you cant play you are no use to anyone. I also suggest you do some injury prevention work

Yea, but at this stage physical work is more important as technical skills should be developed (or mostly developed by now). The other sports I play are for sheer conditioning purposes. As for injury prevention, strengthening your muscles is basically the number one and most efficient solution to prevent your muscles from being injured.
