Should you be a little crazy to be a goalkeeper or not? Humorous quest for the motivation and psychology of soccer keepers.
At a time when most attention goes out to the forward line, to scoring, and to the strikers, this for a change is a subtle and occasionally humorous psychological quest for the motivation and character traits of goalkeepers. Five unconventional amateur soccer keepers demonstrate how exciting it is to wait all alone, in an oversized goal, for the inevitable goal against. As soon as we accept that the defence is fallible, we can be vulnerable and really make contact with the world around us.
