I was expecting something more like "Simon says...fall down and grab your left shin!"

And when not training, they could bring in extra $ by charging fans a reasonable fee to try it out themselves. That looks like fun!

Only futuristic machinery could roll balls in such a way. Oh his hair! Nevermind - I see why this was posted.

And for a hilarious April Fool's day prank, you can load up the launchers with bowling balls. Crank up the velocity and program them all to fire at the same time.

That is a fantastic tool. It covers looking and listening for where the ball is coming from, receiving the pass, looking for a target to pass or shoot to quickly, and then executing said pass or shot. The sheer repetition of those fundamentals would have to improve a player's skills. I hope the inventor of that device gets all the kudos he deserves.

When asked about the identity of his father, his mother could only stare wistfully at the Simply Red tour poster on the wall as she reminisced about a very special concert in Dortmund years ago.

can it fire the ball at different velocity and spin? great training tool, but unrealistic otherwise.

Brazilians do not need.

I wonder if you could replicate a drill like this using real players instead of a fancy-pants facility?
