Hello all. I’m writing my latest goalie column for PUSH magazine here in the UK, and I’m canvassing opinion on something that’s been pretty central to my game in the last few weeks: the weather.
I’m wondering how you guys deal with extreme weather. How do you keep warm and focussed when the opposition’s not giving you much to do and you’re losing feeling in youir toes and earlobes? Stretch? Dance? Sing?…
And when it’s hot, are you prepared to maybe ditch your arm-guards in the interests of comfort?
In either situation, what sort of breathables/thermals do you favour? Do you think existing kit is up to the job of keeping you comfortable in flag-cracking heat and bum-numbing cold?
