Re: EPL 2020/21

You know, the one modern goalie thing I do wonder about is punching the ball. I swear goalies do this way more than they used it. A lot of EPL goals seem to be scored on rebounds after a goalie blocks or punches a ball right into the box. I always wonder why it seems prefered to block a shot out int...

Re: EPL 2020/21

To be clear, I wasn't trying to argue with you. You surely know a lot more than I do. I'm just saying most (all?) goalies wouldn't play that the way Kepa did (or didn't, actually).

Right. The point I'm making in that second and third paragraph is that there's been this shift that has introduced some level of a potential cop out for this generation of goalies.
