Between the Sticks #114

between the sticks #114

Goalkeeping and WWE.

It’s perhaps not beyond the realms of possibility that the two could be interlinked. Especially if, like Sporting KC stopper Tim Melia, you choose to manhandle an opponent to the ground in the style of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Needless to say, the now Hollywood superstar reacted to Melia’s antics in the weekend’s MLS clash with Seattle Sounders, tweeting his approval of what he considered to be “a devastating ‘Rock Bottom’”.

Melia provides the three count in a podcast which, this week, focuses a little more on the EFL than the Premier League.

Mark Travers, Ben Hamer, Marek Rodak and Dai Cornell all bag a mention for midweek and weekend heroics in the Championship, with Toby Savin and Paul Farman (nine saves to help Barrow to a draw against Walsall) the pick of the bunch in League One and League Two respectively.

GK PI is back, too. Leyton Orient’s Lawrence Vigouroux the subject of Rich’s beady eye.
