Following a mini-break during the international and Easter interludes, GKU is back as per to cover all the key action as Storm Kathleen wreaked havoc with goalkeeping conditions over the weekend. Jose Sa was caught out direct from a James Ward-Prowse corner, Franco Ravizzoli saw a cross float over his head in the dying embers of the EFL Trophy Fina…

Very rarely can a subject of interviews on this podcast boast a career involving anything else other than "goalkeeper" or "goalkeeper coach". For Ian Feuer, however, vocations such as actor, stuntman, DJ and even part-time cook come into the mix. There's also the fact he was introduced to goalkeeping via the nephew of a notorious Vegas mobster, he'…

Across the four FA Quarter Final ties this weekend, five No2 goalkeepers were utilised. Considering the negative narrative surrounding Robert Sanchez on BBC's coverage of the Chelsea v Leicester clash, we look at the implications of such decisions. In the Premier League James Trafford was dropped for the first time this term, making way for Ara Mur…

It's been a while, but the Ramsdale/Raya debate returns following the former's display in Arsenal's win over Brentford on Saturday evening. Much to be said, and therefore much is discussed. Ederson's season looks to be hanging in the balance with an injury picked up in the draw between Liverpool and Man City. Basic error or poor goalkeeping to give…

Save of the Weekend contender kicks off the show this week. And that save was made by Bournemouth's Neto, who flew across his goal to brilliantly fling out a paw and pat away Jacob Bruun Larsson's free-kick in a 2-0 win over Burnley. Alphonse Areola bagged another MOM display as West Ham won at Everton, Emi Martinez put in a superbly solid performa…

It's all about Caoimhin Kelleher this week. For the second Carabao Cup Final in three years, he pretty much single-handedly dragged Liverpool to the trophy at the expense of Chelsea. Huge saves from Cole Palmer and Conor Gallagher had Jurgen Klopp and Virgil Van Dijk singing his praises and forming a narrative which could prompt The Reds into a big…

A select band of names seem to be synonymous with goalkeeper coaching. Andy Quy is one of them. Following more than a decade at Stoke City - a period which saw them climb into, consolidate their status and then drop back out of the Premier League - he enjoyed short stints with Brentford and Burton before being tasked with assisting the creation of …

Just like Richard Lee the goalkeeper, we are short and sharp this week. Packed inside half-an-hour of goalkeeping goodness comes multiple Save of the Weekend contenders. Guglielmo Vicario and Jose Sa staked their claims in Wolves' win at Tottenham, while Gavin Bazunu, Viljami Sinisalo, Liam Roberts and James Belshaw fly the EFL flag for Southampton…

He may have been on the losing side, but Mark Flekken broke Premier League records for Brentford in their clash with Man City on Monday night. We briefly discuss his start to life in England, in addition to some familiarly rough treatment dished out to Guglielmo Vicario in Tottenham's draw at Everton. A day of deflections, own goals and rebounds oc…

Lucas Covolan, take a bow. A man-of-the-match performance from Maidstone's No1 helped The Stones defeat Ipswich and in turn become the first club from outside the top five tiers of the English football pyramid to make the FA Cup fifth round since Blythe Spartans in 1978. The Brazilian takes centre stage this week, along with the rest of the fourth …

Is it feasible for a professional goalkeeper to genuinely consider a career as a kicker in the NFL? That is a question we’ve posed on the podcast many times before. Indeed, Kasper Schmeichel - as you’ll be reminded of in this episode - provided a very frank response when comparing the two disciplines a couple of years ago. Now, we have an answer. F…

Gamesmanship? Cheating? Poor goalkeeping? Anything other than taking accountability? Those are the questions posed when pondering Ivan Toney's much-talked about opener in Brentford's win over Nottingham Forest at the weekend. From a goalkeeping perspective, we look at whether his ball-tampering tactics should have been flagged earlier by Forest - a…

Slightly different approach this week. Colin Barnes is a man with skin in the goalkeeping game. After 25 years in the coaching arena, he's contributed to the development of more than 40 professional stoppers over the course of his career (he may have also been Richard Lee's first-ever goalkeeping coach). Now, as Head of Emerging Talent at Crystal P…

Foul or no foul? That was the question on, well, some people's lips following Luton's last-minute equaliser at Burnley over the weekend. With James Trafford appearing to be impeded by Elijah Adebayo, a goal was given and the Twittersphere was split. We look at that incident, as well as Andre Onana's AFCON involvement which could pave the way for Al…

A typically unpredictable and reactive window has resulted in this week's podcast arriving a little later than usually expected. However, we quickly wrap up all the key action from the FA Cup Third Round. Big performances from Nathan Baxter, Dan Grimshaw and Max O'Leary helped Bolton, Blackpool and Bristol City take Premier League sides to respecti…

Happy New Year to goalkeepers far and wide. We kick off 2024 in reluctant fashion with... Commentary Corner! Yes, remarks directed towards Matt Turner in Nottingham Forest's victory over Manchester United were simply too ridiculous to ignore, so we run the rule over whether they were justified. (Spoiler: they were not.) In the EFL, Viktor Johansson…

Crystal Palace now have a conundrum on their hands. Dean Henderson's welcome to return to action in the draw with Man City most likely means the No1 jersey is his to lose. A No1 jersey which, up to this point, had been deservedly maintained by fellow England goalkeeper, Sam Johnstone. We discuss that and plenty more in this week's show, including a…

It's been a long time coming, but Burnley have bagged precious points in recent weeks - and the draw at Brighton was thanks largely to MOM, James Trafford. The uber confident 21-year-old made 10 saves to silence The Seagulls in a performance to show the Premier League he has very much arrived. Returning from a short absence was Alisson, whose prese…

Every so often you meet a goalkeeper and think, "Yeah, this lad's got that bit extra." Connor Ripley is one of those lads. After waiting more than ten years to earn a sustained period of first team football at his registered club, the Middlesbrough-born stopper has revelled in his rightful role as No1 in recent seasons. Successive campaigns at More…
  continue reading
 
According to Erik ten Hag, Manchester United's Andre Onana is the second-best goalkeeper in the Premier League "based on stats". We discuss the Dutchman's claims and look back over his stopper's midweek performance at Galatasaray, before turning attention to Newcastle and a gaping void left by the injury suffered to Nick Pope. If only there was a p…

First on Match of the Day and also opening this week's show are Luton and Thomas Kaminski. The Belgian has been solid for The Hatters since his summer arrival from Blackburn, and a series of saves in a first Premier League home win at Kenilworth Road continues to raise his profile. Andre Onana kept a clean sheet away at Everton and looks like he's …

It's not often you encounter a dog taking part in First Team training. At Mansfield Town, however, Bobbie (pooch of manager, Nigel Clough) is very much part of the furniture. As is Adam Collin, a Goalkeeper Coach enjoying his first full season in the role. Following a morning on the grass, we sat down with the ex-EFL stopper to discuss his transiti…

For the first time ever on the Goalkeepers' Union Podcast, it is two for the price of one. A goalkeeper accompanied by his goalkeeper coach. Dan Bentley flanked by Neil Cutler. We visited Wolves' training ground to sit down with the pair on how they operate, the inner workings of a Premier League goalkeeping department and the implementation of a v…

Normal service resumes on Between the Sticks with a full rundown of the key goalkeeping action from the weekend. Alphonse Areola, winner of October's Premier League Save of the Month, whacked his name in the hat for November's award with a fine stop from Taiwo Awoniyi in West Ham's victory over Nottingham Forest. He could be accompanied by a) Nick …

Premier League, Championship and FA Cup First Round action is discussed and dissected this week. The standard debate around David Raya kicks things off, followed by Guglielmo Vicario's almost point-saving performance as Tottenham fell at home to Chelsea. In the second tier, Illan Meslier was praised as "the best goalkeeper in the league" by boss Da…
  continue reading
 
Raya and Ramsale? Again? Yep, following the weekend's clash between Chelsea and Arsenal, that debate takes centre stage once more. We discuss whether Mikel Arteta's current No1 was at fault for Mykhailo Mudryk's cross-cum-shot, whether criticism of his performance was justified and whether Aaron Ramsdale should be "banging the manager's door down" …
  continue reading
 
Following on from Part One of our chat with Simon a few months, this is just a quick clean up where he talks about more of the goalkeepers he's worked with over the years. The likes of Pavel Srnicek, Joe Hart and Martin Dubravka receive a mention, as do some lovely stories of Simon's time with Sir Bobby Robson.…

As much as we all try to move on, the Raya/Ramsdale debate continues to bag headlines and, as a result, the centre of attention on this very show. Some suggested the current Arsenal No1 looked shaky in the first-half of The Gunners' win over Man City at the weekend. Taking his entire performance into account, we argue whether such analysis was a li…

A bit late this week. With Rich over in the US, we opted to hold off until the midweek fixtures had occurred, thus including Champions League action into this episode's analysis. Andre Onana's start to life at Manchester United is reviewed following Tuesday's home defeat to Galatasaray, a first minor slip from David Raya occurred as Arsenal lost at…

In the 2020-21 campaign, one name tended to crop up a fair bit during the EFL Overview. Affectionately referred to as "K-Leth" on the pod, Kyle Letheren's 24 appearances for Morecambe in the second half of that season were a key factor in The Shrimps' League Two Play-Off promotion. Since then, it's been something of an itch to have him sit opposite…
  continue reading
 
Once again the Raya/Ramsdale debate takes centre stage in this week's episode. With the former in for three straight games since his introduction, we discuss whether Mikel Arteta will stick to his reasoning that each stopper will be selected on a game-by-game basis - and comment on that noticeable applause offered by Ramsdale upon Raya's save from …
  continue reading
 
Raya or Ramsdale? That is the question. And it is a massive, potentially position-changing question in a fascinating scenario which will no doubt rumble on until the end of this season - at the very earliest. Mikel Arteta has been respectfully firm in his stance that rotating goalkeepers shouldn't be such a big deal; his argument leaning towards ho…

Imagine making your pro debut and then having to wait five years for your next taste of action. That, right there, is the life of a goalkeeper. Welcome to the story of Alex Cairns, current No1 at Salford City with more than 300 appearances under his belt and plenty more in the tank. We sat with the ex-Leeds man (a few weeks BEFORE the triumphant EF…

With the transfer window tidied up and normal service resuming, we reflect on all the weekend's goalkeeping action - including an injury-time epic involving Jordan "Don Corleone" Pickford at Sheffield United. A glance is given to the best of the rest from the EFL and last week's Carabao Cup clashes, plus a final look at all the movers and shakers o…

What is a big save? There be a question which commonly crops up when discussing goalkeeping. Is it the timing of the save? Is it the technique executed to make the save? Is it the magnitude of the game in which the save is made? Or is it just simply a big save? Whichever criteria you plump for, there's no escaping a certain Alisson Becker fell into…

With every goalkeeper (and subsequent goalkeeper coach) comes another story slightly different to the other. Lewis Price played in the Premier League with Derby, but never really believed he deserved to be there. He initially opted out of goalkeeping when a youth spell at Southampton went awry, inadvertently jumped back in with Ipswich, helped Luto…
  continue reading
 
With the Premier League now back in full swing, so too is Between the Sticks. All the goalkeeping action from all top tiers of English football is covered, including the much-discussed double whammy at Arsenal with Aaron Ramsdale and David Raya ready to battle it out for that No1 spot. We also look at Mary Earps' World Cup, victory for Inter Miami …

A slight tweak has kept Rocky out of the opening few games of the Championship campaign, so we've ensured he remained in action as the latest subject in our recent series of interviews. The Cardiff No1 delves deep into his thoughts on goalkeeping, the key decisions required to fulfil a career and just what a precarious position it can be. With one …

A bonkers summer of goalkeeping activity shows no signs of abating. Therefore, with just less than a month still to go, we thought it was best to cover off the majority of moves to have taken place thus far. Rich returns to run the rule over acquisitions from all four tiers, plus offering a little reflection on the opening weekend of the EFL campai…

Had arrangements gone to plan, this podcast would have been recorded and subsequently released about a month ago. Thankfully, that wasn't the case. Because a month ago, Tom King was a goalkeeper who had not long completed a short-term contract in League Two with Northampton Town. Now, he's Tom King of Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers, …

After starting his pro career with a close to ten-year stint at one club, Jack Stevens made the decision to switch allegiance this summer. The 25-year-old jumped ship (or boat, more fittingly) from Oxford to Cambridge, signing a two-year deal at the Abbey Stadium in a bid to further an already blossoming spell between the sticks. Touted among top-f…

Up until now, only two goalkeepers to have appeared on the Goalkeepers' Union Podcast could lay claim to winning a European trophy. Alex Stepney and Peter Schmeichel now have company in the form of Czechia's Tomas Vaclik. After rising through the ranks on home soil, a multi-title winning move to Basel preceded a sunshine switch to Sevilla where he …

Back to the dugout for this one. Kevin Miller enjoyed a thorough playing career. From the top tier with Crystal Palace to the nether regions of non-league goalkeeping, he racked up more than 700 appearances over the course of a whopping 26 years. Now his fortunes have come full circle with a role as Goalkeeper Coach at Exeter City, the club where i…

Before today, only once in the history of the Goalkeepers' Union Podcast had a guest been invited back onto the show for a second outing to discuss his or her career. That man was Kasper Schmeichel. And now joining such illustrious company is Lawrence Vigouroux - the man crowned Clean Sheet Club King of 2022-23 and set for an exciting few years ahe…
  continue reading
 
In the final analysis pod of the campaign, we discuss Ederson's heroics in the second-half of Man City's Treble-securing triumph over Inter Milan in Istanbul, while also looking at the impact Andre Onana had on the game. GKs On Their Way also briefly returns to quickly capture the few moves to have taken place in the post-season, before Rich runs t…

Having been out of the cut and thrust of goalkeeper coaching for close to a full season, it was awesome to sit down with a man who's had time to reflect on his career and the fine art of goalkeeping. Simon Smith is the ultimate glovesman. He's worked with one of the most solid No1 and No2 duos the Premier League can ever boast in Shay Given and Ste…

And so the end of another campaign is very nearly upon us, which can only mean one thing... IT'S TIME FOR THE HOTLY-ANTICIPATED GOALKEEPERS' UNION PODCAST AWARDS CEREMONY. Yes, eight gongs are up for grabs in this year's showpiece event, ranging from your standard Goalkeeper of the Season to your not-so-standard Surprise Package of the Season. Befo…
  continue reading
 
Apologies for the slight delay this week. Travel arrangements (read: Rich on a plane) meant we had to hold off until Wednesday for a full rundown of the final weekend of league action, but hopefully a dose of standard goalkeeping goodness will make up for it. Rather than delve into each Premier League game, we've instead opted to run through the go…
  continue reading
 
Once you've negotiated a rather unimaginable tale told by Richard Lee this week, you'll find plenty of analysis on the weekend's key performers in the world of goalkeeping. David Raya pulled off a stunning double save at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (can it actually be credited as a "double save", though?), matched by decent stops from Sam Johnsto…
  continue reading
 
Big Dick, in the middle of our goal, Big Dick... Another goalkeeper. Another unique goalkeeping story. Richard O'Donnell sits down with GKU to recall a career with the type of twists and turns we've not heard from a previously featured guest. From almost falling out of the game a year after his release from Sheffield Wednesday, to bouncing back wit…
