Between The Posts Ep. 5: What Happens When They Score Against You? | Positive Thinking For Goalkeepers (& Loris Karius) |
Original Air Date: May 31, 2018
Host: Tyler Vaughan
In today's episode, we tackle the all to often experience we as goalkeepers have all gone through. As keepers, we all know that sinking feeling that comes whenever we have to pick the ball out of the back of our net. We failed at our job. The other team scored a goal and it's all YOUR fault.
That's it. The game is lost...
...but is it?
A goalkeeper is probably under the most pressure of any other player on the pitch. When you do your job, sometimes nobody will notice - but when a shot gets the better of you, you're public enemy number one.
It's the nature of the job. You WILL let in goals at some point. The important thing is preparing for when that happens. But don't worry, I'm here to help. So consider this goalkeeper's therapy. Soccer is as much a mental game as it is physical.
