The Eight Deadly Sins of Soccer - Couldn't Stop at seven.

1. square balls across the middle

2. stopping the ball

3. GK standing on the line

4. vertical support positions

5. allowing the attacker to dribble the goalline

6. standing-waiting for the pass

7. body position not open to the field

8. receiving the ball with the wrong foot 

Soccer Helpful Hints

1. Don't dribble when you can make a constructive pass or cross.

2. Move to an open spot (space) move away from your defender (opponent), you will then be in a better position to receive the ball.
3. As a defender, when you are under extreme pressure, kick the ball down the field or over the touch line. 4. When the ball is out of view, all forwards should play and think defensively. This active play will place needed pressure on the opponents defense and keep them from aquiring an advantage with supporting defensive players.
5. Make constructive passes across the field and behind as well as in front.
6. Defenders can back pass to the goalkeeper as a safety maneuver. Pass to the outside of the goal mouth.

7. Make the easy plays. Allow the ball to work for you. Don't you work for the ball.

8. Wing forwards should stay wide and close to the touch line. This brings the defender out from the middle of the field and allows more open space for your attack.

9. Don't be afraid to talk to your teammates on the field. Let them know what is happening in the area around them which their field of vision cannot pick up.

10. As a defender faced with two or more opponents (attackers), retreat slowly (stopping or slowing down the attacker) giving more time for teammates to come back to help.

11. Forwards should switch positions at various times during the game with other members of the forward line. example, center forward with winger. This sometimes confuses the defense.

12. Never retreat with your back to the ball. Watch the ball at all times.

13. As a defender, stay between ball and goal.

14. The closer the play develops toward your own goal, the tighter the defense must (should) be.
15. As a defender challenge only when you have a good chance to obtain (getting possession of) the ball.

16. Defenders should have restraint and control. Let your opponent commit himself first.

17. Delaying principles are good tactics in defense. This means slowing down the opponent's forward line.

18. Back up teammates and help cover the space behind fellow players.  

19.Always move toward the pass, don't wait for the pass to come to you.

20. A most important thing to learn is quickness off the mark. The first three or four steps are all important in soccer. Beat your opponent to the ball.

21. What you do without the ball is as important as what you do with the ball.

22. A well placed shot is more effective than a hard shot at the goal.

23. An effective player is always in good physical shape.

24. Play the ball, not the man. (You can not play the man and the ball at the some time).

25. Respect the referee's decision.
