  • ‘Sweeper keeper’? Pah! When I was a boy we often used to have games of football with ‘rush goalies’ who doubled both as an outfield player and, when needed (and if he could get back to his line in time), as the goalkeeper. All wonderfully frenetic, as I remember. Perhaps FIFA should consider using them in the next World Cup.

  • This term is a new one on me, Andrew (games of football did not figure hugely in my childhood…). Wikipedia has: “Rush goalie, also known as a fly goalie, fly keeper, or goalie when (in parts of Yorkshire) is a variation of football in which the role of the goalkeeper is more flexible than normal.” I love the idea of a ‘goalie when’. Anyone have any more neglected footballing terms to share?
