ARE GOALKEEPERS GOOD AT XMAS TREES ??? Good Morning, I hope you have had a great weekend and enjoyed your matches. So last week I done a lot of thinking about certain aspects of goalkeeping and coaching and ended up thinking really deep into the way I coach and how others coach. WHAT IS COACHING?, I kept asking myself and I come up with this. Coaching is about guiding young people into an effective pathway about coaching them basic life skills before anything to do with goalkeeping. So for example: -Please and thank yous -Can a young goalkeepers respect what others have to say around them. -Work in small and large groups with others. -Communicate in groups. -Listen to basic instructions -Take the most basic instructions onboard and put them into practice -Turn up on time -Collect equipment in if asked -Contribute to helping others Now they are only a few things for that list and I know there is loads more but when you think about it goalkeeper can have such a great way of coaching kids the basics of life. Now I haven't gone all save the lord on you are but what I have done is seen this and such a vital part of coaching and every coach out there needs to realise the same things. Before I forgot to have to mention that I love xmas but please can someone tell me why my wife puts up a xmas tree in every room in our house????? Im asking you lot as if I ask her she will tell me to stop being miserable but I have no idea why but each to there own. Also why you get these trees I'm not sure if you men are aware but in the manual it does say men don't decorate the tree as it will only be wrong and she will change it. The reason for this is when men put things on the tree it may not look the same as if the lady puts it on the tree. I don't write the manual for the trees so you need to find out for yourself, for those who have been married for at least 4 years should know this rule by now. You can see in the pictures below of my effort and im sure you can guess my wife tree efforts. One of my most biggest challenges I set myself in my coaching now is to make .... for full blog ...... https://www.facebook.com/100011637637193/posts/646839082380674/
JUST BLAME THE GOALIE, AGAIN????? Good morning and welcome to DGUK TV. Now you might be thinking if its DGUK TV then why isn't there a video so please let me explain. I didn't get the chance to watch the Liverpool v Everton game yesterday so as I always do I watch the goals on Monday morning. I went straight to twitter to have a look of which I ended up finding this title Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford makes error for Liverpool winner. Now I have watched this time and time again, I have rung a few goalkeeper coaches and also messaged about 8 pro keepers and we all seem to be saying the same thing. WHY IS PICKFORD GETTING BATTERED FOR THIS GOAL. So if we look into detail on this goal then you may say he maybe could of tried to tip the ball behind for a corner (if he can clearly get a hand on the ball). My issue with this is that the ball his the top of the cross bar coming from a ball dropping straight down onto it. This is Everton conceding this goal not just Pickford. If you looked at the 2 defenders they both stand watching the 2 Liverpool players move closer to Pickford and only reacts after the ball goes in. Again it's so easy to write these headline that the goalkeeper has made an error and it does annoy me. Could Pickford of done something else to effect the situation, Maybe. Could the other 10 players also done something to effect this situation, maybe. Sorry for a little rant but its os easy to just say its the goalies error. It will continue to happen as its happened for so many years but I really wanted to share my thoughts/ other pro gk coaches and also current pros playing the game at the minute.

GOALIES MUST STAY WARM IN THE WINTER TO STAY FOCUSED DGUK BLOG OF THE WEEK Enjoyed having Maggie here this week who was the American goalkeeper. She done extremely well at Arsenal Fc training and really enjoyed seeing London. Look forward to seeing her in the summer for camp America with DGUK. So Monday night group has got started to really pick up and so my aim is to get 3 groups running after Christmas with 3 age brackets. Will keep everyone informed on this in the next few weeks. I’m delighted I have had a few people take my advise on how to keep your hands warmer in the winter when training or playing matches. Wicket keepers in cricket wear inner gloves for a little more protection on there hands. If you buy an pair and wear them under your main goalkeeper gloves then it will really help keep your hands warm when it’s freezing cold. The reason I looked into this when I was younger is because I couldn’t wait for games to finish as I got silly cold and ended up wasting so much match time cause I want enjoying it. Try it for you or your child it really helps. Been a crazy week of eating bad food so I’m back on it this week as I can’t go into Xmas feeling (or even looking ) like a teletubbie. I find it hard to stay away from s*** food but it really does make you feel more alive and fresh when you eat better. Next open night is for the seniors which is on the 19th December at Town Mead Sports Ground, Waltham abbey, essex. This FREE session will run from 8:30pm through to 9:30pm. I really feel that the senior goalkeepers get neglected and I want to start offering a service for them. I remember David Seaman doing an interview after his very last training session after he retired and he was saying how he was still learning new things even up till the last week he was a pro goalkeeper. We seem to have this though pattern of once we reach a certain age as a goalkeeper there is no point in training as that’s all I’m going to learn (this couldn’t be any further from the truth). As I have got older i aim learning more and more as I mature as a human and also the game keeps.... for full blog ... https://www.facebook.com/100011637637193/posts/64315
