goalkeeper rankings?

Post by bigD17 on 7/2/2014, 7:59 am

I've seen some pretty good goalkeepers the past couple of seasons in this age group and I was wondering if NTX has some kind of goalkeeper rankings.

Don't think anyone would touch that question to point out individual players. 
But I will say that all the top keepers aren't on all D1 teams or D2 teams. Kids at this age are still growing and learning. They have not grown into their bodies and will get scored on high balls. At this age it isn't about being D1 for a keeper but more of getting shots, set pieces and 1v1 situations. Learning angles, having good hands, proper technique, communication with your team and control in the box is the key at this age. The top keepers will come out in the next 2-3 years

It's tough to say who is the best and it would be difficult to rank them individually, but the top 10 are obvious and surprisingly they are not all in D1. 

There is some great talent developing at GK in the 03 age group, but the top 10 are contributing consistently and had an impact on their team's final rankings last season.

The interesting thing about the top GK pool is that they know who the others are and tend to congregate at similar events and associations.

They are easy to identify by their warm up routines and the way they position themselves and call out the defense and there are even some who call out the entire pitch. The top 10 were goalkeepers in youth academy (some also played secondary positions on the pitch too) and the 03/02 ODP pool is a good place to spot at least 4 of them.

So...let me see Admiral Ackbar, I just put the cheese right here and then the mouse comes along and this bar breaks its neck? There is no way a mouse would fall for that, right? Right? Right?  Very Happy

My blind 1 arm grandfather was a pretty good keeper. I would say he's the best in the world but I'm a bit bias.
