    Fat fingers on a phone don't go well together, bit early to be on the sauce.

    one aspect of closing down, which plenty of defenders do these days (and which annoys me), and did last night is to turn side-on when closing down shots from the edge of the box. this creates a higher probability that the ball will take a slight nick of a shin, knee, shoulder or wherever and with the type of ball used these days leads to increased spin on the ball. whatever happened to good old closing down straight on and taking one for the team.

    Posted above. Deflection is clear and puts swerve on the ball.

    Whilst he has his faults and has been making some mistakes, I don't see how anyone can really criticise him for that goal.

    He clearly gets wrong-footed and just does what he can to stop the original strike from going in.

    Just had a look, the ball does swerve but i do not see much of a deflection, he's caught out by the swerve of the ball. Has to do better with that, he will be disappointed when he sees that played back.

    Terrible keeping does he ever stop a ball without pushing it away to a possible player to put straight past him, School coaches used to teach keepers not to do that, He needs some serious coaching, Or a train ticket:D

    Just seen both goals in the Doyle thread and I have to say looking at it from behind the goal is quite different from the camera view from the stand, definitely a deflection from KPs boot.

    Or Patrick hitting the cross bar and putting us 2-0 up, sticks a stunner in then leans back and cracks it against the bloody cross bar, basic technique.

























    Only joking guy's.

    It's not just the deflection you have to allow for, if you have played in goal you'll know when a shot is made towards your goal your brain takes into account the direction, height and speed of the ball and your body sets itself ready based on that information. If a deflection occurs all three elements can be affected, unfortunately Doyle had the full set. The ball took a side spin after it flicked KP's boot so taking it from Doyle's left to his right, it appeared to increase in speed and I reckon it also lifted by at least a foot. It looks worse for a goalie if the ball was struck well and is still heading reasonably close to your body as you only have a split second to react and adjust your hands. Your legs don't come into the equation at this point, there's no time left to spring left or right so your body just follows your hands. When you see it in real time I don't think he had the time to choose where to deflect the ball, if our defenders had anticipated the situation like Thomas did we might have had a different outcome.

    Whilst a lot is being said about the first goal, what about their 2nd?? Why is Doyle attempting to save this with his feet?

    I think the hard thing for some of us is we're not used to playing with the type of balls used today! They didn't swerve like they do today.

    Given the late swerve on the ball it wasn't easy to deal with. He's stopped it, which is the first job. There is a question then as to whether he could have had softer hands so it fell more instead of going out or if he could have hit it harder so it went out further. But that's hyper analysing it for me. It wasn't easy.

    I'm just not sure how much practice you can get at these kind of swerve shots? Perhaps there's a market for a football equivalent of a cricket bowling machine that can swerve the ball and give keepers more practice?? They happen a lot these days surely there must be a way to use technology to practice them more?

    Dear Stuart

    Bronco has recommended me for the post of goalie coach, I suppose that means I'm wasting my ink? Anyway, have you considered using a swerving football bowling machine for Doyle as proposed by Botswana Bantam. We could try out the machine at Headingley if we can make the necessary adjustments and if YCC will let us borrow it. I'm available for interview, I'm busy Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and going on holiday in November but I'm sure we can work around this. My CV is attached........

    Is it yours sincerely or yours faithfully?

    :nails:
