DRFC Best ever Rovers goalkeeper?

DRFC Best ever Rovers goalkeeper?

You`ll no doubt have seen that Vital is involved with the The Great Football Experiment

Good heavens above, I wish someone had done this when I used to play

This video is an example of the coaching they are getting. Specifically this time on the goalie position, lucky old Brad Ayling, aka The Bear. Not only is he getting one on one coaching but due to the training, he`s lost 2 stone in weight! When the crowd sing 'who ate all the pies` to him he`ll soon be able to sing back, 'not me!`



A few goalies in the Premiership could do with taking note! I`d love to put a few youtube clips of goalkeeper gaffs here but daren`t as we get 'told off` then by dataco! I`m sure you can think of a few though.

So, for Rovers. Our latest poll asks who was our best ever goalkeeper. I`ve started from Harry Gregg for our older readers, who started his career with Rovers before becoming one of the Busby Babes at Manchester United. Since then we have had a number of goalkeepers, who have been remembered for the good and the bad.

For the forum and article comments:

Best goalkeeper you`ve seen play for us?

Worst goalkeeper?

And what is the single worst goalkeeping gaff?

Oh and ... ah bugger it, will put in this clip, the worst miss ever?



Did The Bear take full advantage of all his training? Well, in episode six you can see that he was a naughty Bear..... a few drinks the night before training?! Tut tut, we`d never have done anything like that eh!?

Anyway, you could leave some feedback on our Vital Nivea Great Football Experiment site, I`m finding it a right laugh I must admit. If Bear turns up hungover again, what forfeit should he have to do?
Now then, IF Bear turns up hungover for a game or training again, I think he should get another forfeit. Any good ideas folks? I think the best one can be put to the Ivory boys to vote on... so suggest away! ... How to beast the Bear... Click Here

I've seen a few good ones. Dennis Peacock was the first I remember. I actually told him to get a pit job after one poor performance after the game in the Rovers social club when I was a nipper. I thought Andy Rhodes was a quality keeper and deservedly went on to play at a high level. Boyd and Warrington have also done well. For his age and what Rovers have achieved it's hard to look past Neil Sullivan. He is now slowing down but was ultra consistent between the sticks for Rovers and hardly missed a game until last season.
