Following Pulis' exit, the goalkeeper has gone public to announce that he intends to move to Liverpool this summer. He said: "I want to start preparing on July 10, with all the players of Liverpool." The Bosnian has [.

[YouTube] Vandals in Iker Casillas' hometown of Mostoles attack a street sign bearing his name to claim that Diego Lopez is a better goalkeeper [101GG] A couple from Liverpool have taken the corporate buck and [.
David De Gea might have built a bit of a reputation for being uncomfortable with high balls flying towards him, but there isn't a goalkeeper in the land who could cope with a high Andy Carroll flying towards him. The Manchester United keeper dealt with this particular cross without any problems... until West Ham striker [.
No, folks, not all Manchester City fans have six fingers on their hands this chap simply uses too hands. It's another one of those moments where an opposition supporter has obviously grovelled for a photo opportunity with a rival team's player only to cruelly prank them as the picture was being taken.
Manchester United chief executive David Gill is set to head the club's efforts to sign his near-namesake. The Red Devils are reportedly interested in signing 18-year-old Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David Gil. United scout Martin Ferguson, Sir Alex Ferguson's brother, has been keeping a close eye on the Spain under 20 international and the club don't [.
1. Team in red takes the lead thanks to an own goal and adds a second courtesy of poor marking by the opposition. Blue team suddenly kicks into life and fights back to 2-2. It's impossible to know how this one will end. 2. Or perhaps not. Everton vs Liverpool and Chelsea vs Manchester United [...]
In the recent past, Arsenal has had problems finding a perfect goalkeeper. Of the quartet currently known as the ‘Big Four,' Manchester United relied upon the solid Edwin van der Sar, and now have the duo of David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard. Chelsea has Petr Cech and Manchester City has Joe Hart, who is arguably the best goalkeeper in the league.
The one negative that came out of last night's game for Newcastle was that goalkeeper Rob Elliot suffered a first-half injury during his home debut for Newcastle, and that will keep him out of the squad for Sunday's game against Manchester United, but Tim Krul is still not fit again from his elbow injury.
Not everyone will agree, but personally I consider the goalkeeper to be the number one most important position on the football field. Outfield players can spend 90 minutes grafting in search of goals and denying the opposition scoring opportunities but, in an instant, a goalkeeper can undo all that hard work and send morale spiralling [.
We all know Luis Suarez has a fondness for handling the ball, but that's no usually because he's the goalkeeper. In a twist on the old adage that strikers are the first line of defence, the Liverpool star positioned himself in front of Reds keeper Brad Jones and proceeded to do his job for him. [...]
Everyone loves an animal pitch invader and last weekend's Swiss Super League match between FC Zurich and FC Thun was brightened up by the presence of a pine marten on the field of play. A pine marten with a penchant for the Benny Hill theme tune. The cheeky chap ran rings around the players and [...]
Last Friday saw the final of the Saudi Crown Prince Cup Saudi Arabia's equivalent of the the FA Cup being played between bitter rivals Al Hilal and Al Nasr. The match went to penalties, at which point Al Nasr goalkeeper Abdallah Al Enizi decided to unleash just about any form of gamesmanship that [..
Winning a major international tournament should always be a cause of celebration. But Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama did his best to get himself in trouble in the aftermath of his side's African Cup of Nations win by trying to pick up the referee. Perhaps he was struggling to contain his excitement at the prospect of [.
Warning: this is not a video to watch in earshot of your boss. Ex-Rangers goalkeeper Andy Goram received a tirade of abuse from Celtic fans who found him playing the roulette machines in a bookmakers. The video starts with the fan chanting "There's only two Andy Gorams" in reference to the former Scotland international suffering [.
Left horribly exposed by his defenders' inability to deal with a long ball, Peru under 20 goalkeeper Angelo Campos made a split-second decision to just charge out of his goal towards Uruguay striker Gonzalo Bueno and hope for the best. After completely missing the ball, Campos appeared to have left Bueno with an easy chance.
You'd think one of the perks of being a multi-millionaire footballer is that you wouldn't have to associate yourself with anything embarrassing in order to make a decent living. But England and Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart was more than happy to become the new face of dandruff. Hart is the star of a new [.
Forgetting the loose morals of the issue, we are thinking of creating a baby football team. Last year we scouted our striker: the one-year-old Dutch baby who was given an eighteen month contract by VVV Venlo after showing his skills in the playroom. We now also have our goalkeeper, who showed incredible bravery in saving [.
D.C. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid will be returning to the USMNT after being called to the 26 player roster by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

David Luiz scored a late winner with the last kick of the Europa League semi-final between Chelsea and Basel. The Brazilian fired a powerful sidefooted free-kick past goalkeeper Yann Sommer, who is likely to be pretty disappointed with his attempts to make a save. Julio Cesar will be pleased!
Earlier today we brought you some entertaining pictures of David Luiz wearing a Chelsea Pensioner's outfit to his fancy dress birthday party. What we didn't realise at the time was that QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar attended his compatriot's bash, presumably dressed as Luiz. That meant that, in the week that QPR virtually ensured their relegation [.
Valencia might have crashed out of the Champions League against PSG, but goalkeeper Vicente Guaita was not going to go back to Spain without a consolation. If playing in Europe's premier club competition was going to be cruelly snatched away, Guaita decided he would snatch at PSG star Ezequiel Lavezzi.
Wycombe goalkeeper Jordan Archer was barged to the ground by a Gillingham supporter during last night's televised League Two match. As he bent over to place the ball for a goal-kick, a Gills supporter charged and jumped at Archer during the closing moments. The Tottenham youngster, on loan at the Chairboys, was uninjured and able [.

Should Arsenal buy a new goalkeeper in January? by KJ
Arsenal have suffered an array of injuries once again to key players at the start of the season. The likes of Rosicky, Sagna, Wilshere, Diaby, Szczesny, Fabianski, Frimpong have either made very few appearances or have yet to feature for the club this season.
Liverpool will attempt to bring talented Barcelona youngster Cristian Tello to Anfield as part of any deal that takes goalkeeper Pepe Reina to the Spanish champions. Barca want to bring 30-year-old Reina to Camp Nou to replace Victor Valdes, who is expected to leave the club this summer. Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to [.
I guess the best way to start this blog is to briefly introduce myself and to give you all a taster of what to expect from my blog in the future!
Myself- i played as a Goalkeeper in England floating around the Semi-Pro scene, then went into coaching iv worked with some great coaches and have always tried to be a sponge and soak up any information or drills that they have to share.
One thing is clear for me about our recent slump and dip in form, without JT and Frank Lampard on the pitch, we have no natural leader or voice on the pitch to organise people, to give people encouragement and a real kick up the arse!
Just look at last night, seeing David Luiz and Mikel arguing on the pitch is just embarrassing and you have to question if JT was on the pitch, would that be happening?
We all know that goalkeepers are different - they wear different colour kit, they play a different role, they are the only ones on the pitch allowed to use their hands. But who do you think is the best ever goalkeeper?

It's like they've got eleven Dicks on the field." Sometimes football can be a sausage factory. RB:Rod Fanni Unflappable Frenchright backforOlympique de Marseille has impressed in recent years.
Before the game last Thursday we thought that Newcastle's third string goalkeeper, Rob Elliot, was an average goalkeeper at best but we've been proved wrong (what again?), and Rob has put in two very good performances for Newcastle, without making one mistake, and he's still young at on;y 26, and has ample time [.
