✈️ Up in the air but how do they land🦵


GKs don’t hop to set. They hop to self organise their body to dive.

You see a “mistake” and look at twitter you’ll find countless theories regarding why that GK conceded which always leads to a technical / physical error. ImageImageImage
But your body will only produce an action as a reaction to what it perceives.

Is the chosen action wrong because of what the brain is telling them to do as opposed to their body “unable to do something” due to set up?

Set up changes according to situation / what you perceive.
So how do people differentiate between anatomical and mental “issues”?

Remember this is just thoughts! But hopefully this thread can give others something else to think about before jumping to a physical fix.

We all know how important decision making is for goalkeepers 🧠⚽️

However, our friend The Goalkeeper Psychologist has shared the following top tips to make your pre-match ritual more than just a superstition 🙌
1. Want more consistent performances? 📊


These are the actions which trigger physiological responses that your brain associates with match day ⚡️

💥Pre-Match Rituals (1/2)💥

For part 1 of this series we want to hear from all of our followers about their pre-match rituals 🗣💭

From getting a feel of match ball just before kick-off (R. Bürki) to forbidding anyone from touching your 🧤 on the day of a game (David James)
So what are pre-match rituals and what do they do?

Rituals are a series of thoughts and actions that athletes use to trigger themselves into their “Ideal Performance Mindset” 😀😎🤬😱
While some people view these as “superstitions”, the idea is that consistent pre-game markers lead to consistent performances 🤝

These rituals can lead to improved:
- motor control 💪

Not only a top top goalkeeper, but one of the best guys Lee had met in football

Happy birthday Stefan! Image
"I learned a lot from him, even though we are different types of goalies. He's one of the nicest people you could meet - it's rare in football to meet someone so genuine and down to earth. He's done everything in the game - winning the Champions league
"He was a hero at Rangers and it's nice to see someone do so well for themselves and stay the same person they've always been. He was a great guy and a brilliant goalie.”
