  1. Hey guru, i can see your video took a lot of effort to make but there were definitely some informational flaws in some of the clips.
    1. Messi Does NOT use 'the running technique of long strides' to accelerate. It is quite clearly the opposite in his case. His shorter stature requires him to draw speed from the frequency/cadence at which he strides, and not the stride length. Messi shows This, every time he dribbles.
    2. I'm not sure what kind of report you read to find out messi stretches for 90 minutes every day. A footballer of his magnitude surely would not need to go to such measures.
    3.Lactic acid is not a result of oxygen in the muscles.
    4. Your 'dribbling rate' measure thing, is a bit off there. The clip clearly shows messi breaking the defenders challenge and beginning to accelerate away. Not sure why the counter is going down.
    5. Plyometric training has very little to do with a player's GCT. It is more of a focus on the amount of FORCE a player can drive through the ground with each step.
    And finally, could you please even out the music volume so viewers don't have to adjust it constantly, thank you.
    Hope this helps some people trying to learn about the game
