Introduction

Improving My Strengths & Weaknesses Identification In football there are three main aspects that put together my performance; skills/techniques, strategies/tactics and fitness. My aim is to analyse my performances and then identify my strengths and weaknesses. Then, I will set some clear, realistic and achievable goals that I can reach by taking on an action plan for 6 weeks. From looking at my strengths and weaknesses I will develop this action plan mainly to improve my weaknesses. I also need to have a method of evaluating the plan, so it can be considered a success or failure, so I can learn to develop a more efficient action plan next time. I am going to look into the three aspects (skills/techniques, strategies/tactics and fitness) to first of all identify three strengths and secondly the three weaknesses of each aspect, I can judge my strengths and weaknesses by recording myself and watching back for analysing. Strengths Skills/Techniques 1. Long Shot: I believe my long shot is pretty successful, as I train it quite a lot and my legs are strong enough to get quite a lot of power. Although I think I could use my long shot a lot more in a match, so I think I need to be more confident. In training I hit 8/10 on goal and in a match 1 out of 4 long shots I score. 2. Long Pass: My long passes are quite accurate; they usually land within 8 yards of my target. I often practice a variety of long passes in training, I have accomplished each technique including inside swerve, outside swerve, straight on, chips and spin passes. I could improve the speed of how long it takes my body to get into position. ...read more.

Middle

My friends say when they watch me I get caught offside 2/10 times and I could give defenders a yard and still beat them with pace. 2. Dropping Off: Sometimes when we play good opposition the midfield need more options. I sometimes drop off to do this, but I need to be more sharp and decisive so the defenders cannot read me. My manager says I've got the basic idea, but as soon as I drop off he says I should immediately shout for the ball and this will give me more time. Action Planning For Improvement Now that I have identified my strengths and weaknesses I can set some clear, realistic and achievable goals. For skill and technique my dribbling needs to be improved for me to be more at ease when on the ball and prevent being tackled, I aim to gain a lower loss of ball percentage per match, a longer time on the ball per match and to look almost effortless when in game. I currently lose the ball about 25% of the time, I aim to lose the ball 15% of the time. My left foot is probably the weakest part of my game so I cannot aim to high. At the moment I hardly ever pass with my left foot, I aim to pass with my left foot at least 25% of the time in a match. I don't use my left foot much to do first touches, usually about 1 in 10 times, I aim to control the ball with my left foot 25% of the time and shoot at least once with my left foot because at the moment I never shoot with my left. ...read more.

Conclusion

My results were good with the biggest improvement coming in strength I think this is because I'm at the age where muscle is built easier, this is proved because I have added 20% of my first lifted weight on average before the 6 week action plan. I have looked back over my strengths and weaknesses I evaluated before I completed the 6 week action plan and several things have changed, for example my stamina is no longer a weakness, I think this is because I've been doing allsorts of training e.g. running, jumping and weights. My agility is no longer a weakness I think this is mainly because of the mixed circuit as I found it quite challenging and there are a lot of techniques used. My strategies towards football have changed and I now try to drop off to the midfield a lot more, I think this is because I've identified this as a weakness therefore I am more aware. As I said my fitness weaknesses have improved e.g. stamina; I now how energy spare towards the end of the game and I do not have to pace myself as much. My agility has improved and I now feel a lot less injury prone and I can now attempt a variety of agile movements. If I were to do this program again I would change these aspects: I think I would try to improve my first time shot and heading because this is one of the most used skills as a forward. I would also work on my first touch and long shot so I have a better chance of holding the ball and scoring form a one-off long shot. Overall my action was a great success as I've improved all of my weaknesses, I would recommend to most footballers at my level to use it to their needs.
