Decision Making

as a MF, he canít give the ball away so much; he needs to constantly move to find open areas 

Communication

too quiet; if heís a smart player, he should be able to communicate to those around him 

Executes Under Pressure

under pressure in the middle of the field, he was too casual; he has to stay focused and committed throughout the entire game, regardless of how he or the team is doing

 

Movement Off Ball

good movement at times but needs to be more active & want the ball more 

Small-Sided Game

looked better in the small game; good recognition to pressure defenders did well to find ball more   

Full-Field Game

a CMF player has to be good with the ball all the time, & he gave too many passes

Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
 

Spencer can handle playing at a higher speed if he wants to and if he gets into an environment where he can play on a more frequent basis.  He was too casual for the first two days of the Combine, and judging him on the last day isnít accurate because the quality of play and speed of play had dramatically decreased.  There were too many careless passes and giveaways in the middle of the field that lead to good counter attacks for the opponent.  He has to focus on every pass and not be so casual.  His defending was poor and more of it could improve if he committed to defend properly and with more effort.  He was better in the small-sided games because he moved around more to find the ball in good areas.  Can he do this in the full-sided game?  Spencer has to realize that has a smaller player, every touch on the ball will dictate how the coach views his ability.  Heís not going to win an physical battles, so he has to be perfect with the ball.
