200 High Quality 'Lint Free' Nail Wipes/Pads
200 High Quality 'Lint Free' Nail Wipes/Pads

2.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't bother buying again, 15 Feb 2013
So technically I don't use them for their intended purpose. I use them for cleaning disc brake rotors on my bike. For this job they are a little bit to small and very absorbent, you can't tip the bottle on to the pad as you lose lots of liquid. The only way around this it to take 10 or 12 of the pads. So for cleaning rotors, they failed because of their size. I got my daughter to use them to remove her nail polish and although they seemed to work quite well as she was able to do one hand with only changing the pad once, however you still suffer from the same absorbency problem. For the price and the fact you will go through them quickly, stick to cotton wool pads or buy them locally


Dutch Soccer Drills Volume II: Game Action Drills v. 2
Dutch Soccer Drills Volume II: Game Action Drills v. 2
by Kentwell Richard
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all coaches, 28 Aug 2009
Whether starting out or those looking for additional drills, this is a must have book. Those with little experience will be able to work through the drills shown whilst those with experience will be able to use the book to vary their routines.

The book is simply laid out, none of the drills are complicated and can be adapted to suit all levels of player and coach.

It might look dated, but what the Dutch did 30 years ago is still being used and in some cases implemented now. In my opinion this book is better than a lot of the newer ones on the market.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only buy if you dont have a clue, 28 Aug 2009
Dont buy this book if you are an experienced coach... This book is for people who are starting out (hopefully it is aimed at them as well) and if this is you then this book provides and asks some of the basic and fundamental questions you should ask. It contains simple (basic) drills that are not complicated to set up or run, however they will not challenge any decent player or coach.

If you are starting out and need a good book to tell you how to structure your session, this book provides a good start, It also might be useful for those who are stepping back down the age groups as it gets you thinking back to those simple things that the kids need to learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for anyone serious about developing players, 28 Aug 2009
This book is excellent for anyone serious about developing players, experienced or just starting out. Although some of the exercises might take a bit of working out all the drills are excellent.

Although the book states that you need lots of equipment, I have found that most of them can be done with a ladder, slalom poles, markers and garden canes. I have used some of the drills with all age groups from U8s - U12s.

Definately worth the money, as I said tho the book could do with some clear diagrams but dont let this put you off.
