Between the Sticks #138

Episode 206,  May 30, 2022, 04:40 PM

For the final analysis-based Between the sticks of the season, we focus on an epic, record-breaking Champions League Final performance from Thibaut Courtois. The Real Madrid stopper has asked for respect to be put on his name, and it's certainly fair to say he thoroughly deserves it.

Congrats go to Brice Samba, Ethan Horvath and Aidan Stone for playing their part in Nottingham Forest and Port Vale going up via the Wembley route respectively, plus a quick shout out to Rio Patricio for Roma's Europa Conference triumph.

Lastly, a doff of the goalkeeping cap to Lee Grant. A friend of GKU and an all round top gent, Granty has called time on his playing career after four solid years as a backup – and integral goalkeeping cog – at Manchester United. A coaching role at Ipswich beckons. They're lucky to have him.
