New post from GK Analyst Andy Elleray!

After having a short break, we are pleased to be coming back with such a great addition, from Andy Elleray, Goalkeeper Analyst, MSc, Goalkeeper coach with experience of coaching and analysis at Liverpool, Cheltenham and now Chelsea. Thanks Andy...enjoy.

Goalkeeping Age: A shift from the experienced stopper?

After watching the 8-2 demolition of Arsenal by Manchester United a caouple of weeks ago and analysing goalkeeping performance (as I always do!) I started to wonder about the growing trend of younger goalkeepers.

JustKeepers great Deals!

JustKeepers are always at the top of the goalkeeper kit lists and they are running some great deals at the moment. Check them out here: 7 day deals have started a new program of running exclusive deals for 7 days. During this time they upload special deals to the website...but you have to be quick as they end after 7 days...and then a whole new load of deals start!

Working on where you work in a Game

As a GK Coach I am a big fan of research, I always watch live game or on TV  and look at where teams most frequently hit shots/crosses from, where they hit through balls/balls over the top from and into what areas of the pitch. I also then look at where the goalkeeper distributes the balls from, with what technique and to what areas of the pitch and how often.

This then forms my ideals and principles on how I work with my goalkeepers  in training. I believe that if your training is not aimed at the end result (The Match) then you wont see an increase in levels of performance.

Summer transfers and all that stuff!

What a summer we have seen in the Premiership/Championship, loans in, loans out and big money transfers!

Firstly the strangest of scenarios I have ever seen Ben Foster to West Brom in return for Boaz Myhill to replace him at Birmingham as a season long loan, and Martin Fulop in also.... back up or competition ?
