Goalkeeper’s Cut: David Coles

david coles

Mini, micro, maxi and mega mistakes. The Black Box.

These are all terms and methods of training created and adopted by Bristol City goalkeeper coach, David Coles.

After bagging his big break at Southampton, Colesy has since become one of the go-to goalkeeper coaches.

In this podcast, he discusses his progression from low-level goalkeeper to top-flight coach and delves into his diary to tell tales of David James, Robert Green, Asmir Begovic and a whole host of others.

Another one for the purists, this.
