    I was a goalie for soccer for 5 years and I was good at it, I rarely got scored on and it’s VERY DIFFICULT, you have to know when to run towards the ball, throw yourself, the huge net, corner kicks, free kicks, penalty kick, etc.

    Goalkeeper for soccer the hardest position in sports? HAAAAAAAA. Which fucking nerd made this list? Riddle me this, if a goalkeeper is the hardest position in sports (non physical sport), then why are they usually the worst athletes? I've played rugby, wrestling, baseball, soccer, hockey, football, karate, mma, track, basketball, etc....and the hardest position in sports is either middle linebacker for american football, or the goalie in hockey. "Goalkeeper".....HA. Pathetic. You might as well say the "flyer" in cheerleading...

    Hockey goalies get 30+ shots a game, handball goalkeepers can let 30+ goals in per game so guess how many shots they will get throughout the whole game? It´s a lot lol. And it´s not nice to get shot right in the face from sometimes 4-5 meters, trust me..i´ve been hit a lot of times

    I think it kind of rude to say some positions are harder than others because that saying that people put in less work to do something. The person worked hard to play as that position.

  • Michael In The Bathroom

    im my soccer teams goalie and everyone says its the easiest position. ive played all positions while theyve only playes their current position and i can tell you its definitely the hardest. you have to be able to jump high while also being able to quickly slide and dive after the ball. its also hard when the ball doesnt get far down the field before they try and shoot again so that you have to get up quickly.
