This week’s guest is a man who made nearly 800 appearances and kept in excess of 250 clean sheets in a 24-year career.
He played in all four tiers of English football, he went to a World Cup with Ireland and he once apprehended a pitch-invading dog while playing for York City.
In a refreshingly honest chat, Dean Kiely reveals what it was like being a player under the likes of Alan Curbishley and Harry Redknapp, while also touching on why sports psychology is crucial in aiding a goalkeeper’s development.
Elsewhere on the show, Rich runs the rule on the week’s action and we catch up with David Kross – the actor who portrays Bert Trautmann in the quite excellent cinematic release, The Keeper.
