Be confident in yourself and don't think you can't turn and stuff like that. Be positive, take risks and use the skills you have, it's all a mental game once you know you can play....

If you don't know when to turn, ask your teammates to be more vocal and tell you if you have the space to turn and make a run.

I once had the same problem. rzadzinski couldn't be more right, confidence is key and the cure. I also got through it by trying new tricks and using them in game to beat defenders. I also practised using my vision effectively by dribbling and kicking against the wall and rarely looking at the ball.

I dont use moves to beat defenders. maby once in a while i will use a cut butt thats it. I went to a soccer camp at duke university in North carolina and one of the national team coaches from trinidad and tobago was there. He changed the way i tought of the game. He says ' Treat the ball like its ya girlfreind'. ' Most of all enjoy the game, knock the ball around one touch, two touch passes quick, You dont have to prove anything to us, pass the ball to a freind, share, passing and reciving is the main inegrediant for a sucsseful player
Enjoy life always be happy

I would recccomend going to this camp if u want really could competion and great coachs from around the world. Like northern irelnd coach, Swedens head coach, trinidad and tobago keeper coach and former player and people that used to play for newcaslte

It's only to build confidence, after that it's up to you.

i tihnk his way of playing soccer is the real way. Everyone is so focused on embarresing the other players when u could make a simple pass to move the ball.

Thats good advice as a center mid, you dont need to be able to beat people, you do need good dribbling skills of course, but the main thing is you need a good first touch and very accurate long and short passing and of course good long range shooting. Your a playmaker not a tricky winger or forward.

As for being afraid to turn, the only way to overcome your fear is by facing it, if you turn around youll get used to it eventually and get it stuck in and become a better player :)

one more thing dont get so used to turning all the time cause you never know someone might be right behind you. im not saying to not turn just look back before you get the ball to know if you can turn.

Yeah, always make sure to have a check behind you to see if you can turn. It's a common mistake which many CM get caught at. Make it a habit to check before you receive the ball.

If someone is not directly behind you, but off to the side a little, you can try a dummy. Just stand there as if you are going to recieve the ball, but let is pass through your legs and sort of spin off the other player and run. You can pick it up yourself as long as the ball isn't going to fast, or a teammate can get it after you dummy it and you can make a run.

Honestly i dont think you should be playing centre mid. sorry to play there you always need to be confident in your abilities and you must always want the ball and be able to pick a pass everything goes through you find another position or just play with more confidence your choice :wink:
