98/99 UMIST – 3rd Team
99/00 UMIST – Chem Eng Team
Then I retired!
I love playing in goal, even though I was rubbish! My reflex is very good, it is just my handling is poor, and so is my kicking.
The feeling of catching a ball or making a great save is magical! I rather save a goal than score one.
I can remember lots of great saves but I also can remember lots of mistakes too! Most of those mistakes end up giving goals away. (Even now, playing in 5-a-side!).
It is a huge understatement to say that I know how “Green” feels. Even a world class keeper makes mistakes. You are really playing with luck sometimes.
To a goalkeeper, you have to wait. You have to wait for a shot, a cross to come at you. A goalkeeper can only respond and play then. Sometime you only get one chance to show your skills. Lack of concentration will make you do silly things. Well Green you just have to wait until your next match. Although I think James should play, Capello will probably stick with Green. Finger crossed, you are not cursed with making blunders like me.
