Goalkeeping in football is changing, and scrutiny – in terms of training, support, and on-field actions – has never been higher.
This fully updated, resized, and revised second edition of Scientific Approaches to Goalkeeping in Football builds upon the success of the original 2013 bestseller, offering both theoretical and practical changes that have emerged in the area of goalkeeping over the last few years.
Written by goalkeeping specialist Andy Elleray, this book offers a 2019 update to his class-leading approach to goalkeeping in football. Focusing, in particular, on young goalkeepers, it sheds light on training, player development, match performances, and player analysis. New methodologies, training approaches, and development considerations are included, along with brand new content on goalkeeping in female football, performance analysis examples, and advances in practice design.
Practice and theory are merged together to create a creative hands-on book with its roots in the latest research and thinking.
