'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Latics Best Premier League Goalkeeper




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

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 Premier League could do with taking note! We'd love to put a few youtube clips of goalkeeper gaffs here but daren't as we get 'told off' by dataco! I'm sure you can think of a few though.

So, for the Latics. Our latest poll asks who has been our best Premier League keeper. I've started from John Filan, I haven't included Vladimir Stojković, the only keeper who was more afraid of crosses than Dracula! I've also not included Richard Kingson, he looked good for Ghana but we didn't see enough of him in a Wigan Athletic top to make a proper judgement.

For the forum and article comments:

Best goalkeeper you've seen play for us?

Worst goalkeeper?

And what is the single worst goalkeeping gaff?

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

Best saves for me have been John Filans double against Villa in 2006 when we drew 1-1 at Villa Park and Chris Kirkland against Chelsea, Anelka header which somehow Kirkland managed to finger tip over the bar to give us a share of the points at Stamford Bridge in a 1-1 draw. Worst keeper - got to be Vlad, his performance at City in 2010 wasnt even Sunday League standard

I haven't included Vladimir Stojković - LOL! I'd say it's a tie between Kirkland and Ali at the moment. When Kirkland was in form he was incredible but he was too held back by injuries. Ali needs to rediscover some of his form from last season as he's looked a tad nervy in the first few Prem games
