Weekly Review 29th – 4th April 2010

06 April 2010

This week is the most I’ve trained than any other week. I had a stomach bug on Wednesday but all the other days have been filled with touches, shots and improvement. This week’s focus was on my left foot. I felt doing constant work on it throughout the personal, by myself training sessions I had, has given it some improvement overall. I’m going to focus on it again this week and my overall weaknesses + strengths before I head off to England for the April one week FootballCV Trials camp on Friday.

I’ll report on how that goes, every single day if I can. It should be a fun week filled with good trainings, a talk from an ex-England international and on the last day, a trials game with several scouts from various pro clubs coming to watch the camp members play. It also gives me a chance to asses my skills against the other players. Right now, I feel like I could be one of the best players in the camp after all the training I’ve done this week.

This Week

There’s really only two days I can reflect on in club training this week. Aside from club training, I trained roughly¬†11-12 hours this week on my own and with friends.

Thursday:
– Touch was poor
– Need to be more aware of the players around me
– Crossing was good
– One on ones I just don’t feel confident

Saturday:
– Long range shots were accurate, but need to be more powerful.
should cut inside more from the right wing to showcase one of my best assets and affect the game more.
– Crossing was really good.

In 2009, I was an average soccer player with a dream. I started this blog to document my journey from local underdog to getting offered over $100,000 in soccer scholarships, a contract to play professionally and the experience of playing in Europe.
