Between the Sticks #108

gku podcast between the sticks 108

With Richard still kicking back in Dubai, this BTS episode remains via Zoom.

As per usual, it contains all the usual goalkeeping goodness, with a focus on David de Gea’s distribution in Manchester United’s win over Newcastle, Ederson braving a boot to the face against Leicester and Aaron Ramsdale making his Premier League debut for Arsenal.

Congrats go to Vicente Guaita for racking up 100 appearances at Crystal Palace, a second full top-flight appearance for Jed Steer (six years after his first) and a first league outing for Ben Hamer at Swansea.

There’s also a word on Swedish stopper, Pontus Dahlberg. The 22-year-old joined Doncaster on a season-long loan from Watford in August, and duly found himself propping up the League One table as Richie Wellens’ side are yet to bag a victory this term. The nine goals against, however, could have been significantly more had it not been for Dahlberg’s heroics.
