Yeah perhaps we could play Lairds again to prove we haven't forgotten where the net is!
I think I'd start in training by having all outfield players shooting into an empty net.
Do we score many in training ??

The problem is you can't teach someone to score goals, it's like sprinters, you can't train someone to run faster just improve their ability to hold maximum speed longer.

So as for the goalscorer in training all you can do is work on things like positioning, set piece drills and communication etc, they either know where the goal is or not.

I entirely agree Higgosboots , as Clive Evans a player from 30 yrs. ago said to me once 'the hardest thing in football is to score a goal'
Anyone of us who has played will know how true that is as we have all missed attempts on goal, at whatever level.
The shooting at an empty net was a confidence building exercise, as it's a great feeling to hear the ball hit the back of the net.
A keeper would then be added and then attack v defence.
I would stress that it doesn't have to be a 35 yard wonder strike.
How about a few tap ins, a deflection, a hashed clearance creating something.
The key to these scenarios is attackers in numbers in the box and training routines working out who is going near/ far post, edge of the box?
