Speaks an ignorant *rse who probably hasn't watched any WSL games.
I suspect some of those GKs have also got pretty strong punches on them.
The quality of women's football is not very good...this is fact. The games may be as entertaining as the men's but slightly different issue
Looking forward to Rose Namajunas v Joanna Jedrzejczyk fight at UFC 223 so it's not sexism
Goal size is just down to reality....
- The average female goalkeeper is 5 inches shorter than male counterpart
- Her standing jump is on average 4 inches shorter
- The average arm span is also 4 inches shorter...etc
- There's a reason Steve Death played in Div 3/4
also wtf are you on about with 'hard' punches
Hey golden boy, I was lucky enough to watch Steve Death play for us when I first started watching Reading and trust me he was one hell of a goalkeeper... Great agility, fantastic reflexes and despite being in the era when forwards could literally flatten goalkeepers without it being called as a foul, he seemed to have an incredible ability to just rise up and take catch crosses with seeming ease.
Defenders must have loved having him playing behind them.
He was top class and had we risen up the leagues at that time he would have still been in goal!
