Between the Sticks #149

Episode 219,  Nov 08, 2022, 03:04 PM

It's good to talk, which is how we start this week's Between the Sticks.

Aside from Rich offering up some motivational anecdotes over the past week, we read out a listener's email focusing on anxiety and nervousness in aspiring goalkeepers as young as ten years old.

Additionally, we ponder a question which isn't often asked despite the regular use of its main subject: What and where exactly is "no man's land"?

Edouard Mendy, Jordan Pickford and Dean Henderson were all found guilty of residing in such a place this weekend, so we figured it was worth delving into the origins surrounding this loathed location.

Elsewhere, the FA Cup First Round throws up names not usually heard on the podcast, and Benfica B stopper Samuel Soares has put his hat in the ring for next year's Puskas Award. The 20-year-old netted an absolute piledriver against Trofense in Portugal's Segunda Liga.
