check amazon.com they have a lot of them and they range from about 35 to 300. A good one would be about 50 but are you sure you have no wall. If you dont then go and buy one, it would be a good buy.

Yes! I have all summer to work on this since I'm not playing soccer this year. I hope it'll do to me what it did to you (I'll start it when the break begins).

Great guide, it's really useful. Just thought I should add for anybody that doesn't know, that there are A LOT more plyometric exercises. If it hasn't been done before I'll make a guide all about that.


P.S. I love defoe as well but for some reason whenever I read your name I read it as Joe Pedo :P

Do you waste time when you practice 30 min. Because I think I just have time to do it 30 min today, and you say if I do it less than 2 hours I waste my time. I think that is wrong. Do you mean that if you dont do it a least 2 hours a day, then you dont be good enough to be pro?

I do the wall training 5 days a week.2 hours daily.The problem is after a while it becomes boring.
It becomes boring and I want the training to end,I can't stop looking at the watch.Should I change something?
Should I kick the ball with my full power on the wall?
And about the speed stuff: I only do some plyometrics,speed ladder drills and some foot contact drills and a weight training -> 3 times a week.
Is this really helping my speed?Or I should run sprints or something like that?
I have 15 years.I'm from Romania.
On 20 May I will go a week in the Gica Popescu's soccer school.Because I was there at tryouts and the coach said I will go after school one week there to decide if I stay or not.
P.S: Great post jdefoe,it really helped me!I hope you answer my questions.

First off, make sure you are incorporating these drills in your wall practice:

http://www.expertfootball.com/gossip/answer.php?qid=535

If you already are, I feel you. I do these drills too and they get repetitive. Try different things such as doing them faster (while maintining quality).

An additional drill is this:
Find two walls about 10 feet apart (across form each other). It doesnt matter how high they are, as long as they are no lower than 1 foot.
Facing one wall and pass the ball against it. Trap the ball with the same foot.
At the same time setting the ball up to pass with the other foot agains the other wall. Trap the ball again with the passing foot and repeat the previous steps.

To challenge yourself even more:
make the passes harder/quicker
Trap,turn and set the ball cleaner and faster
Instead of trapping the ball with your passing foot: try trapping it with the other foot, turning and passing with the passing foot again.

As far as speed goes take a look at my posts in this topic:

viewtopic.php?t=14844

Fartleks and stairs will help you with speed,acceleration, and quickness.

It shouldn't. What kind of material is it? Some kinda rubber or whatever can't be that bad, and might even teach you to be more gentle when receiving it.

If people can practice with tennis balls, playground balls should be just fine. ;)
