i outgrew when i stopped play under-9s at a local community centre
plus it ruins the game, how can you play proper football when every deflection that pops up gives a free-kick? or put together much of an attack when you're not even allowed to stray into the box to get into position around it? or defend a proper backline?
also we got beat really badly because of our frustration at not being able to really play. me in particular, i was too angry to do anything properly by the end of the game.
5-a-side or 11?
you learn to adapt quite quickly and it will make you a better player
we were on the waiting list to join one of the b or c divisions but a team in the elite league dropped out and we got their spot.
it's been a harsh two weeks (i only played the second game).
i still hate these rules. i used to be a competent right-back as well as forward player but it's tough when clearances are effectively outlawed.
you'll get used to it and like I say it improves your touch, technique and passing.
put your foot through it and keep it low, ffs. It isn't hard.
You'll get used to it.
this is supposed to be a man's game
they're right man, it'll improve your technique
but not being able to kick it above head height? I couldn't work under those conditions, it would ruin me.
-No raking long balls up to the striker.
-No hoofing it into touch.
-No aerial battles.
Yep, I'd be fucked.
unless these ones are a different size, are there 6-a-side pitches? I have a feeling they exist anyway.
and a penalty because he thought the keeper was going to come out of the box to make a block.. blowing the whistle before the infringement took place (as it happened it didn't and he missed but they scored the pen)
being able to knock it off the wall makes up for the fact that it's too easy to be blocked off if you try to run someone on the outside down the wing.
I played in DiS football in london in June and I'm still finding them in my kitchen in sheffield in August.
