1. Something I have noticed, is a lot of back passing to Pickens when the midfield/defenders are around midfield or in the offensive half only to have Pickens 'goalie' kick the ball. Doesn't make sense to do this so many times when said midfield or defenders could just send the ball forward in a direct 'cross' if you will without the time elapsed of sending it back to Pickens just to have Pickens send the ball forward anyway. Over 90% of these 'goalie' kicks have been turned over to the opposing team. It has become more of a habit that should be addressed. 2. If you notice how the team seems to be lost with what to do with the ball after moving the ball around/forward/backward for about 40 to 60 yards is because they practice too much small sided 'games'. Just look at one of their latest videos. They have moved the goal posts to half of the field. This way of practicing creates this muscle/mind memory of playing in these small sided situations. Much the same way a predominantly indoor soccer team plays outdoor games on a large field. 3. Omar needs to get rid of the Folan act of throwing his hands/body around in disgust EVERY time a ball does not go the way he would have liked. It is creating a bad aura within the forward half. Omar, get over it and just play. You will see that those balls will naturally come to you in much better positions. 3. Practice to Play, Play to Practice.
