changing your shot

Post by skip2dalou22 » 15 Apr 2006, 20:57

whenever i try to shoot and score i always aim for low corners and its an instinct for me, but my friends have been talking about how i never kick the ball high and that i wont make my team next year if i dont start kickin it to the high corners because thats why the coaches look for, i know sometimes you have to kick it in the high corners when ur farther out, but it is really neccasry for me to change my shot? :?

no way, scoring in the top corners looks good, but the most effective way is shooting in the bottom corners.

Whatever gets you scoring is what works. Goalies have more trouble getting down to the low ones.

having a habit of never shooting high isn't necessarily bad. lacking the ability to shoot high is. you should make sure you know how to put a decent shot into the top corner, but if the bottom works best for you, stick with it.

HEy man, like SV_08 said, What ever gets the goals is all good. if you have a hat trick at the end of the game , your coach wont care where you shot it. In certain situations it is bad to shoot it low, but you just got to practice and practice makes perfect

Either your friends or your coaches don't know what they are talking about because 9 times out of 10 it is harder for the goalie to get to lower shots to the corner. Sure, shots into the top corner look "better" but they are certainly easier for the goalie to save usually.

look at Wayne Rooney, his golas are from way out, n it is mostly in the bottom corners not the top ones, only his volleys are, if u find it easier to score golas in the lower corner den do so. I ca n put it in the top corner easier lol i have to practise more low shots :)

Like everyone has said, Your coach isnt going to be looking for where you shoot it as long as you get it in. If your scoring goals once in awhile I'm pretty sure he could care less where you shoot it.

When i take corners I usually take them high but low corners are hard for goalies. The other day I took a corner and it curved right in BARELY. It chipped the top right hand corner of the post it was incredible lol. But practice makes perfect and dont give up.

What do you feel is more importan, getting a hard shot on net no matter where it goes, or getting a shot that is accurate but you might need to take alittle off the shot or take more time setting up for the shot?

Don't change your shot..If your putting the ball in the net your coach cant keep you off the field

as a keeper my advice is shoot low...they are the worst to save, even at 25 yrds out they cause problems.

Yeah Rooney is a great example, also Ronaldo. They both shoot low and they are proficient goal scorers, as long as you put the ball in the back of the net, you dont have to worry about changing your shot to top corners.

This dosent mean you shouldnt practice shooting in the top corner. Continue to practice shooting in top corners cause in some situations you need to.

By the way skip2dalou22, what position do u play?
