Descriptions du produit

Aloof, solitary, impassive, the crack goalie is followed in the streets by entranced small boys. He vies with the matador and the flying aces, an object of thrilled adulation. He is the lone eagle, the man of mystery, the last defender' Vladimir Nabokov Albert Camus, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Yevgeny Yevtushenko, Pope John Paul II, Julian Barnes and not forgetting Nabokov himself's safe to say the position of goalkeeper has over the years attracted a different sort of character than your average footballer. In this first-ever cultural history of the 'loner' between the posts, Jonathan Wilson traces the sometimes dangerous intellectual and literary preoccupations of the keeper, and looks at how the position has secured a certain existential cool. He travels to the Bassa region of Cameroon, which has produced two of Africa's greatest keepers, and also to Romania to talk to Helmuth Duckadam, who saved four penalties for Steaua Bucharest in the 1986 European Cup final. His absorbing tactical and technical insights into football history even take us back to the days when matches were contested without a man between the sticks.THE OUTSIDER is the definitive account of that most mysterious of footballing personalities - the goalkeeper.

The book is quite good if you look for a light read full of anecdotes - but if you are serious about technical aspects of Goalkeeping and how/why it evolved the way it did - it will leave you wanting for more. Jonathan Wilson's 'Inverting the Pyramid' was a lot more balanced book imho, it also contained many entertaining stories, but the adjoining diagrams and movements could have kept you interested if you were inclined to be more, ahem, analytical about the game.

However, the early days of goalkeeping (mostly before Yashin era) are quite well covered and can be looked as good material that is not so easily found.

Jonathan WIlson is one of football's premier writers. His keen eye for detail and elegant writing style illuminates topics that would otherwise not appeal. Even the casual football fan would find his work accessible and engaging. The Outsider is no different and, as the title says, describes nicely the history of football's most unique and misunderstood positions.
If you coach a keeper or have a son/daughter that's a keeper - Read this. 6 mai 2014

I love that it was good at showcasing some of the greats in history, shows you the evolution of the position. I can certainly relate to many of his points. It helped me understand the different types of goalkeepers and their role in a system. My son is a keeper and it helped me understand his position much better. Brilliant work.

Enjoyable, detailed, interesting - but it felt a little forced, as if Mr. Wilson put together a list of goalkeepers, categorized them, and then assembled some anecdotes about each. He's always a good read, but I've liked some of his other work better.

Quality read and good writer. Wilson researches his topics well and tells a good story. If goalkeeping and/or soccer is your interest, this is another good one
