Overview

Routinely regarded as madmen, lifesavers and villains (often within the course of the same match), goalkeepers have always been looked upon as a breed apart - what other profession could unite the likes of Banks, Jennings and Yashin with Grobbelaar, Higuita, David Icke and the Pope?

This book takes a light-hearted look at the pressures goalkeepers face, the dangers they confront, the pitfalls the brave and the methods they use to survive.
