    What other sports do you play out of interest. Wilf is right about there being an age advantage to learning football but it goes deeper than that. Many sports have similarities, often you'll see sportsmen say if they hadn't been in one sport they were good enough to make a go of being professional in another. That is a much deeper issue. If you can't do 5 kick ups that suggest your ability to track a ball in the air relative to yourself is pretty poor, just general coordination. Thats why you get sporty kids who are half decent at any sport they try, the basics carry over.

    Honestly it's my favourite sport, I love football and would rather do it then weightlifting, but there's a problem, I'm so bad at it it's not even funny, i'm 5'11 and around about 92kg, I'm quite fast actually but other then that I am terrible at all aspects of it. I've been playing for aorund 6 years now and I still can't do more then 5 kicks up, I am awful on the ball, can't pass it or dribble past anyone I just look so unnatural on the ball, I'm basically the kid who always got picked last in football, what should I do? Should I just give up, I swear it must be my genetics that prevent me from playing properly

    I know that feel man. Honestly my whole ****ing life I have tried to be good at football. 2years ago I have been trying my ass off but I still fail.

    Also I know that feel of always being picked last.

    Lets become powerlifters together its the sport for people who arent good in other sports.

    Practice everyday. It's not hard trust me. Practice technique/ball control. You will eventually improve.

    Also confidence is important, maybe you are lacking it?

    Just summed up my footballing ability nicely! Always grated I couldn't do it and my brothers could around 20!

    Don't listen to the comment about if you haven't learnt control the ball or touch or dribble with the ball from a young age that is something you will never learn or get better at or be as good as your peers because I personally believe that is a load of rubbish if you want to do something you put your heart and soul into it you train train train and the skills and drills will come with it don't let people tell you that

    Exactly the same problem is with me I'm 14 year old girl and just started playing few months agoI can run fast but can't even do one goal in a match and can't dribble well too I love football but the fact that I'm not good at it makes me ashamed if myself football is my passion but I haven't got the talent and I also get tired more quickly as compared to others like small boys of 7,8 years can play better than me and I can't even juggle a ball but I can't leave football but I'm not even good at it like I've tried a lot to improve myself but I don't see any improvements

    It could be genetics. It's just the way you work, like hand eye coordination sort of thing but with legs lol. Never mind, try another sport perhaps?

    :lol: can't believe I used to post stuff like this.

    I know its an old thread but OP should play in defence and master it. It's all about intercepting the ball, tackles and you can just clear it. (for casual football)
