Above is a brief vid of Andy doing drills on clay. I think drills are an important part of training, but I also think the body becomes programmed to do certain things, and it should be 'tricked' at times to help it deal with the unexpected. I'm a certified fitness instructor and used to train an amateur footie team (years ago).. but they asked me to help them because their trainer just did the same old stuff week in and week out.
With me, they never knew what was coming next.  Oh the fun I (oops.. 'we') had... lol.. and they did start to play better.
I'm really no expert at this... just an observation I had when I've watched Andy's other training vids on his official website... and for all I know, all the players do the same type of stuff.

Interesting. The only question I have, is....

By football are you talking from your Scottish roots and referring to the European version, or known over there in North America as "soccer", for the crappy American version that is for all intents and purposes a gay version of rugby?

lmao 
No.. I'm talking about the real game.   i.e. Kicking the ball with one's foot... hence the proper term "football." (Or, in my colloquial language: "Fitba!")
Also, it was an adult team.

Interesting video.  Thanks. Smile

Maybe a silly question, but how do you train for the unexpected (in sport anyway) when you don't know what the unexpected is?  For example, in MC the courts were, according to Andy and Rafa, poorly maintained and had "holes" in them, something which caused three players to suffer bad falls and, as a result, injuries.  It probably wasn't so bad once players had a chance to roughly map out particular areas to be wary of, but they don't need this sort of distraction, particularly at this level.
