    The secret to my success? Watch the kicker’s eyes. They tell you where the ball is going to even before they know it themselves. You can take that to the bank and cash it

    And best of luck for the tournament this weekend. If either one of Jimmy Kiernan’s knees hold up then you’re in with a great shout

  3. That’s golden. Literally.

    That’s great advice for any youngster contemplating taking up the art of goalkeeping. T’was also true of the art of gunslinging in Old Wild West and the present day art of mudslinging in the Irish Parliament. Look your opponent in the eyes, windows to a trigger happy soul.
