ok it goes a bit deeper than that...

you never really see messi doing stepovers do you?
he just runs with crazy speed and great great control and simply watches opponents for weakness' in their stances and exploits them
(eg. lean one way or lunging in for a tackle)

If you can control the ball you can control the game man

well there are two attributes to it and explosive speed is one
so you will have to work on it

But in saying that you could use it if you are quick (in the head and legs) enough
but when watching the opponents stance, you can also improvise and do tricks to really burn them when they are about to commit or they are leaning one way
this could make up for explosive speed, but you should still work on it

also you only really see messi do tricks when he comes up to a defender who is perfectly stanced and would be to hard to beat with raw speed

It would increase muscle twitch reaction more-so, but yeah it is a great all round excercise, especially for co-ordination

This guide is great. It deserves a 6 star post rating, no lie. So much information in this guide that it makes me wonder why you took the time to make such a guide. You must love us :D Anyway, this is fantastic. I love the explanations and the using players like Messi, Hleb, C.Ronaldo, etc as examples.

thnx so could you give me a routine for skipping ?

Skipping gets your heart rate up very quickly, it shouldnt take more than 3 minutes of skipping straight to raise your heart rate.

I partcuarly enjoyed reading your words about how everyone has a unique dribbling style. When I was younger I wanted to learn every trick and use all of them at once and be the "trickster", a bit like Ronaldo. Its only been in the last couple of years, do I realise that I have my own qualities, and certain moves that that I like to use most and to most effect, and theres more to dribbling than tricks. Thanks again for the guide.

also if you are (1 on 1) with an opponent and you have the ball in close control you should not run straight,instead you should run at an little diagnole angle so your moves come out better,because if you watch alot of football games you can see that the plays with the ball dont tun straight alot...and also try to change direction,and speed..

Thats very true, approaching a defender from an angle makes them commit in that direction and also makes it harder for them to keep their balance
