At times in the heat of the moment, football players go in for wild tackles earning themselves a booking from the referee. Some players though, seemingly completely lose it and do the stupidest things to earn themselves a RED CARD and instant dismissal from the pitch leaving their team short of a player. Here I have collected a series of the craziest incidents in football where players totally lose the plot for a moment earning themselves a place in my list of Football’s Softest Sending Offs.

 


Fernando Torres – 28/10/1012
In one the most hotly contested contests in the Premier League, Chelsea were already down to 10 men (Ivanovic got sent off) when Torres was shown his second yellow card for appearing to dive following a challenge from United’s Jonny Evans. Could Torres have continued to play after the seemingly weak challenge? Or had he already lost control of the ball and decided to fake a dive? Whatever the real reason it was pretty lame and Chelsea had to continue with only 9 players.

 

 

John Heitinga
Spanish player Andres Iniesta seemed to take a dive after the slightest contact from Holland’s Heitinga in the 2010 World Cup Final. To make matters worse, the Dutchman had his hands raised when Iniesta ‘fell’ to indicate he wasn’t making a challenge. Still, referee Howard Webb saw something that earned Heitinga an early exit from the pitch.

 


Joey Barton – 2/10/2005
One of Premier League’s most controversial player (some would say dirtiest) received the first red card of his career in the daftest of ways. With his team down 3-0 and the half time whistle about to blow, the referee again cautions Barton. Instead of keeping his mouth shut and walking to the dressing rooms, he decides to give the referee another piece of his mind leaving the referee no option but to book him for his verbal abuse.


Paul Scholes – 29//0/08
This has got to be right up there! Instead of using his head on the end of a superb cross (or any other part of his body), Scholes chose to use his hand to slap the ball into the back of the net! For this brainless act, he earned himself a second yellow card and a ban resulting in him missing the Champions League opening game.

 


Lee Cattermole – 04/03/2012
Another of football’s controversial figures, the mid-fielder added to his red card tally in ridiculous style! Already booked for a dreadful tackle in the first minute of the match, the Sunderland captain gave the ref an earful with abusive foul language and earned himself a red card – only this was after the whistle had been blown for full time!

 

Brian Stock – 05/01/2013
Although only yellow carded for this offense, a second booking in the game resulted in a red card for the Burnley player. The thing was the first yellow shouldn’t have been given. Stock was pushed in the back and hit on the back of the head then mistakenly booked for a foul - part of the risk in football; a work accident compensation claim in other employment!

 


Arjen Robben – 15/01/2006
Here’s a classic example of ‘From Hero to Zero’ After scoring a sweet goal that put his Chelsea team in front 2-1, Robben was so thrilled he ran off the pitch to share his jubilation with the fans. The referee promptly showed him a yellow card for excessive celebration, his second of the match, earning him an early shower.

 


Zinedine Zidane
Finally, the list wouldn’t be complete without this controversial incident. In the World Cup Final 1996, the Frenchman was given his marching orders by the ref. After lots of shirt tugging by Italian player Materazzi, something he said made Zidane suddenly flip out and head-butt the Italian in the chest knocking him to the ground. It was an unfortunate exit for one of the world’s greatest players.

As the title said Strength, Speed and Agility the keys in Soccer.This article is focused of these key points which mostly young soccer players should follow.

 

This article explains following points:

1.What to Focus on in Soccer Coaching

2.Flexibility

4.Repetition Encourages Perfection

 

1.What to Focus on in Soccer Coaching

Strength, speed, and agility are all imperative skills when it comes to the game of soccer. It is clear why speed is fundamental in soccer: soccer is a quickly paced game. The way more potential you have to hold up with the ball and outrun other players, the much more most likely you are to accomplish major plays for your team. Soccer demands lots of quick spurts of speed inside a common marathon like running session, so develop your speed over both brief and extended distances. Agility is also beneficial in soccer. This will assist you dodge other players, safeguard the goal, and  make contact with the ball. Soccer training does not commonly concentrate on strength, but it is an area that will enable you to honestly enable your group. Building your strength will also allow you to perform soccer skills improved, over a longer period of time, than your opponents. Focusing on these three regions will permit you to be a threat on any soccer area.

 


2.Flexibility

Flexibility is beneficial to soccer players without it, they are at threat for injury. It is all too convenient for soccer players to overextend themselves and lead to muscle or ligament harm. All soccer players will need to discover how to stretch appropriately, and do so daily. Coaches will need to educate themselves in right stretching procedures and then pass that information on to their players. A high-quality stretching session should certainly last about 15 minutes. Stretching ought to take place ahead of practice, and cool-down workout routines must take spot afterwards. Some stretches soccer players need are rather straight forward other individuals are rather complex. When trying a new stretch, players must constantly know what muscle groups they are supposed to be focusing on. Don't forget to stretch effectively and stretch frequently to assure muscle flexibility.

 


3.Playing Soccer with the Family and friends

As an athlete, you will need to realize that your experience and ability as a soccer player is ultimately determined by oneself. Practice both on and off the field is key. Every single of us, no matter how substantially we try to hide it, has her own strengths and weaknesses on the field. Practice at home can give the double advantage of spending time with loved ones and enhancing your game. Even if you only go by way of drills that your coach has taught you, you will boost your ability on the playing field. If you practice at residence, it is most likely that other household members will turn out to be interested in soccer. Extend an invitation to your parents to play with you or to come to your games. Even if all you do is dribble the ball to and from practice, this in itself will increase your ball handling potential.

 


4.Repetition Encourages Perfection

Soccer practice is all about repetition. It is each common and smart for a player to repeat a drill about twenty times or significantly more before starting yet another drill. All of these drills will also most likely be repeated from practice to practice and from season to season. Most drills are created to focus on developing and refining the simple moves in soccer, such as shooting, dribbling, and passing. It is valuable for players, coaches, and parents to fully understand that this repetition will encourage perfection on the field. Coaches ought to count on the overall performance level to raise with repetition. If a player does it wrong, a player should repeat it until he or she can do it right. The end goal of repetitive drills is for a player to grow to be so superior at a certain ability that he or she can carry out it flawlessly and reflexively.

 

So start concentrating on these key points and you will soon start observing improvements in your skills.

To improve your skills you also need to upgrade your kit. Here are some important upgrades you should consider:

Shoes

Today you will see lots of verity in shoes but according to my knowledge you must go with any of the following shoes. They are light, comfortable and having good grip.

1. adidas  F5 TRX FG Soccer Shoe

2. Puma Powercat 4.12 Fg Soccer Cleat

3. Nike Mercurial Victory III Soccer Cleats White/Solar Red

Star Kick Soccer Trainer

1. SKLZ Star Kick Soccer Trainer

 

Cheers!
