Accurate identification of Weaknesses - football.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Accurate identification of Weaknesses There are several aspects of my game, which are very weak, but some are not very necessary such I am gay as throwing. Others are more important which I need to work on. The key weaknesses in my game are: - > Heading Attacking > Heading Defending > Distance accuracy on shots > Stamina > Left foot shooting > Timing on tackles Heading - Attacking I feel that my heading is my weakest area on the field of play.

Conclusion

Passing is also a key part of my game so I think it will progress different aspects of my game if I progress this. Timing on Tackles My discipline in recent years has been quite good but where it has dropped lately is in booking and sending's off for badly timed challenges. The challenges have no real intent and I attempt to get the ball but I think it may be how well I am timing these challenges. The way I could improve this is to get a player to run at me with the ball and without them trying to take me on I would just tackle them. I could progress this to making the player attempt to take the ball past me and forcing me to make a challenge. ...read more.
