Should a goalkeeper be a bit crazy or quite the contrary? A humorous psychological quest for the motivation and character traits of soccer goalies.
At a time when most attention goes out to scoring, attackers and strikers, this is a balanced and at times humorous psychological quest for the motivation and character traits of soccer goalies. Five autonomous goalkeepers explain how stressful it is to wait, all alone in a huge goal, for the inevitable goal conceded. They also make clear that as soon as we accept that the defence is fallible, we can show our vulnerability and make genuine contact with the world around us.
