Goal Keeping Technique

As we in MHBP blessed with 3 of the UK's best goalkeepers (Ste, Adam and Drew - IMHO), I'd be interested what you'd add to this summary of the art...

Generally I think everything they've said makes sense and seems like common sense when you read it.

I know I need to work on keeping weight off my mallet when in goal and being more accurate/confident when blocking and moving the ball away from a shot to the BB area rather than relying on stationary wheels/mallet to stop the ball, but I need to find a new way to approach it as what I'm currently trying doesn't work that well (especially against Chan and Rob) and I find myself conceding a lot of goals that way. Maybe I just need to work on balance and reaction speed...

I was just reading that. Chan annoys me when he holds it up until you roll forwards too much then knocks it behind you.

That's why you hop more.
And contrary to the article I find it easier to block things coming in from behind like Chan and Adams little knocks in because you know they're coming and can easily react.

If they get that close, your team has failed you.
