The life of a keeper

[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] A player mocks a keeper for his abject failure between the posts in Turkey while a netminder in Brazil makes a comically sarcastic save on a weak penalty, such is the life of a goalkeeper.

The victim in our first clip is Scott Carson of Bursaspor, who made over 100 appearances in goal for West Brom, and even had four caps for England. He made a meal of this thoroughly accidental pop shot by Semih Senturk, who was credited with the goal in this 3-0 win by Fenerbahce.

The Turkish international seems quite eager to congratulate Carson for his assist …



Carson’s peer in net, Deola, exacted some hilarious revenge for the keeper’s union, across the globe in Brazil’s lower divisions.

Trailing 4-1, Fabricio Ceara of Salgueiro FC gets cute with a Panenka penalty kick down the middle, and after making one of the easiest saves of his career Vitoria’s keeper channels the goalkeeping ghost of Charlie Chaplin.

Absolutely classic…



Ten seconds extra for men in uniform even lower on the totem pole.

This referee executed a textbook slide tackle in a friendly between Shakhtar Donetsk and Zenit Saint Petersburg this week…
