Neville Southall is Wales's most capped player and has over 500 top-flight appearances to his credit. During his distinguished career as Everton's goalkeeper, he has been a key member of League Championship and Cup-winning sides, most recently playing an outstanding part in this year's FA Cup Final victory over Manchester United. This is a guide to goalkeeping, from the simple, but important choice of gloves to the difficult match-winning save. Southall examines every aspect of goalkeeping, with the promise that hard work will pay dividends. He not only outlines the ways to become a better goalkeeper, he also indicates the bad habits which are so easily acquired, while advising how to erase them. Fully illustrated throughout, and making use of examples and anecdotes from the careers of other great goalkeepers, this book is both a coaching manual and an insight into the game as it is played at the highest level. From being a bin man and hod carrier, Neville Southall has risen to the top of his sporting profession, earning the respect of players and fans worldwide. He knows how to succeed and he know the efforts required to do so.
