Kicking without spin

Post by doug-e-fresh » 24 Apr 2005, 17:26

i have been practicing bending my shots for a while and now whenever i want to make a straight pass or shot, i always seem to bend the ball and my shot/pass goes way off target. any advice on how to get my shots and passes back to normal, but still be able to bend the ball when i want to?

well, no better friend than a wall for that
i have spent countless hours practicing long passes
now, i can hit a man's leg from 50 m
draw spots on the wall, move the ball and try to hit these spots softly, like someone has to pick up that ball, try that from many distances...
and for many hours :D
that will make your leg automatically adjust to pass the ball wherever you want.
for shot, put the ball 20 m from a goal in a line with penalty and spend hours hitting the bar
that helped me.. :wink:

try this hit the ball dead center but don't let your foot fallow through
it's kindda like a chip but you hit the center of the ball hard and fast
so after your foot makes contact stop it.
It should go perfectly straight and it should be very hard for thr keeper to
get a hand to it.

u can try to shoot with the laces of ur cleats and follow through on ur shots; land on ur shooting foot. ur shot should be harder and more accurate

I sorta have the same problem especially with a long high pass. (i.e the ball bends/curls ). How do I avoid that?

i think u need to watch da postioning of da foot ur kicking wiht (where is exactly it should be) and the postioning of ur other foot next to da ball it should a foot away from da ball, then it all goes bakc to da positioning of ur foot on da ball

to hit a shot without spin just follow through, but dont whip your knee up, because this creates top spin. Just hit the dead centre of hte ball, relax, and follow through normally, and lean back a little tiny bit.

yes but if you kick the ball at the wall and every time you scoot back farther you have to kick the ball harder there for decreacing the acrecy of hitting the right spot on the wall or you end up hittin and breakin a window :evil: :twisted:

if you cant shoot strate then square your shoulders when you kick and the ball will go in that direction try it
