Who Ate All the Pies at related • 0 views

By Alan Duffy

One of the best goalkeepers to ever grace the Premier League, 36-year-old Shay Given has decided to retire from the international game after racking up 125 caps for the Republic of Ireland, a record for the Boys In Green.

The Aston Villa glovesman, oft described (erroneously) as a 'short goalkeeper' (he's 6'1″), wasn't at his best in Ireland's disappointing Euro 2012 campaign, and after much thought, decided the time was right to step aside.

Arsenal goalkeeping: Crisis what Crisis?

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

When it comes to the goalkeeping department, Arsenal has never been accused of being the strongest Premier League club in the past several seasons. The club's last world-class keeper was David Seaman and Jens Lehmann could probably be considered an adequate or good goalie. However, since Lehmann's departure, the goalkeeping hasn't kept up with the other 10 positions on the field as far as top players are concerned.
