Shooting practice 20:50 - Jan 19 with 1169 viewsBDS

Did anyone else notice how bad our players are during pre-match shooting practice? Ten to fifteen minute practice and there can’t have been more than fifteen to twenty percent on target and probably only a quarter of those scoring. Surely professional football players should be hitting the target from ten yards completely unopposed.
Great win today but thank heavens that chance came inside the six yard box.

It took us 42 mins to shoot on goal today and that was off target!!!

Seriously pre match warm ups don't bother me. It's just a warm up and many do things they wouldn't dream of doing in a match.

It should bother you mate. Our shooting is awful. We like to walk the ball in. Players should be practising shooting from 20/25 yards for an hour a day if I was the gaffer

The guy who sits next to me in the East stand told me about it, as I took my seat quite late. He said they were struggling to hit the target. Must be true. Maybe Potter told them to miss deliberately to fool the opposition, especially if Bielsa had sent a 'spy'

I've gone on this season about who is really looking at our weaknesses and are we working on them in training.
We can see it so surely Potter, Billy Reid still all can see it too?

Pre match practice at 2pm really is just to get the blood flowing through the muscles.
You see cricketers play touch rugby or soccer these days as a warm up.

2pm warm up practice or not I saw eight out of ten six year olds hit the target against Cyril without much warm up

Seven goals in two away games, a goal away last week away for a point, and one yesterday to beat an automatic promotion contender, good enough for me.

Not as easy as it looks mind, the idea is to hit the edges of the target to beat the keeper. Lame excuse I know.

In my experience the warm-up is also about focusing and honing. Shooting practice is an absolute must and has been sorely lacking for some time.

Some of us would look forward to watching the likes of Gylfi fire them in with precision and pace. The players would visibly get a buzz.
