You know when you’re little and you play football , no one ever wants to be the goalie ? Do you think the Goalkeepers that play pro actually wanted to be in goal for a living or do you think they got the short straw?
I played in goal when I was little. I loved it. I was the school’s best goalie. It’s a hard position to play in - not only requiring different and unique skills within football, but being thick-skinned enough to deal with the flak when you’re inevitably blamed by the rest of the team when goals go in. (Instead of their poor decisions/communication/defending/etc.)
