  1. T1tan GK Gloves

    Just a shame they're so expensive for an indie brand.
  2. Wyatt's 2018-2019 Season

    Watching those highlights, I've got one suggestion for Wyatt, and that is to Slow Down! You can see that he always wants to go at top speed, which is good. But he needs to be able to have a cool head and just put his foot on the ball for a minute. You can see this when he rushes his goalkicks or kicks out of his hands, when he takes his time he hits them beautifully, but when he rushes he scuffs them. Just my verdict, other than that, looks to be a good goalkeeper!
  3. TJGOALKEEPING Traditional Negative Cut Glove Make & Model: TJGOALKEEPING Black and White Negative. Cut: Negative Cut, with mesh gussets in between fingers. Latex: Internal Latex: No Wrist Strap: Double Elastic Wrist Strap. Wrist Entry: Neoprene Glove Body: Mesh & Latex Finger Protection: No. Price: $60 AUD or £33 or $43USD Where From: www.tjgoalkeeping.com.au BUT you currently have to order through their Instagram, Facebook or via email. First Impressions Being my third pair from TJGoalkeeping, I should've learnt by now that their gloves fit extremely small. I went with my usual size 10, instead of going a size up and I immediately regretted it. Thankfully that's one of the only negative opinions I have towards these gloves. The gloves are of a extremely simplistic design, with an all black back-hand with white accents and a white palm. The latex is quite powdery straight out of the packet, and after two thorough pre-washes, they come alive. One aspect of the glove that I really enjoyed was the thickness of the double wrap elastic wrist strap, which is a lot wider than any other wrist strap that I've ever tried. Use I initially bought these gloves for the convenience of two-day shipping in Australia, as I needed a pair for the final 4 games of the season. The gloves were worn for those 4 games, along with a few goalkeeping sessions during the offseason. The gloves are quite odd, with the latex not being the tackiest in hand, but they somehow have the tendency to stick to every ball, irrelevant of how wet or dry the latex is. Every use has been in dry conditions. Durability wise the latex at the tips of all the fingers have begun to rapidly deteriorate, due to the small size and all uses being on astroturf fields. The wrist strap has also begun to tear and fray. All in all the gloves hold up extremely well, and whilst they don't have any fancy features or technology, they're a traditional glove that just gets the job done. One change I'd love TJ to make is to add latex in between the fingers, instead of the mesh that is currently there, and to fix their sizing issues. Other than that they're onto a winner here. Ratings (out of 10) Looks - 7.5 Fit - 6 (Fit really small, go up one size) Build Quality - 7 Dry Grip - 9 (Will remain the same until the latex is completely worn through) Wet Grip - N/A due to the dry Australian weather. Durability - 8 Overall - 7.5 Conclusion The gloves from TJGoalkeeping, are an extremely solid option for a training, or match glove for a Goalkeeper who is looking for a glove that just gets the job done well. Customer service is extremely good, and they will not hesitate to answer any questions or queries that you might have about the gloves. They will give you the same quality grip and confidence until the latex is completely worn through. I wouldn't hesitate in buying a pair from TJ, just remember to go a full size up to get the best fit! Pictures - Coming soon.
  4. The BIG goalkeeping glove brand list

    90% certain that 'Rehab' is just a line/model of Gloves made by Keepersport.
  5. Bucks Returns

    Do you rate the preds Bucks? Looking at grabbing the new flashy Pink ones. But I'm sceptical of the weird looking toe box.
  6. Pope's Captor Pure

    Wow, they must be amazing to turn you away from Nike and Adidas, great review Bucks. Know where I can get my hands on them?
  7. It comes with the position, unfortunately, to be a good goalkeeper you must just be a good player, but also have a resilient and persistent mentality.
  8. Really upset that Nike have moved on from the traditional VG3 cut, was one of my favourite gloves to wear, and I just can't get on with a generic hybrid roll, flat palm :(
  9. Wyatt's 2018-2019 Season

    Hope the injury isn't too serious, and he's back ASAP. On a positive note, it's good that the reserve keeper didn't play well, will make everyone appreciate Wyatt a little bit more ;)
  10. Strange Issue with kicking

    I do the same, regularly. For me, it comes from overthinking all aspects of the kick. From the run-up to the way I lean away from the ball. Just don't put too much thought into it and you'll be fine.
  11. Wyatt's 2018-2019 Season

    Good luck to Wyatt, tell him to remember that a large influence on who will be played at his age comes down to who you know, along with other no-football related factors, and not just ability.
  12. Nike Retail vs Nike Promo Shirts

    Smaller branding.
  13. Bucks Returns

    Goodluck Bucks
  14. Pope's Captor Pure

    Must say, i do love the look of some of the Pro Issue gloves they have. Looking forward to seeing what they release to the public upon launching.
  15. Samba Infiniti Giga Rolls

    Been waiting for a Samba review, and this didn't disappoint. Great review Fraser.
  16. Wyatt's 2018-2019 Season

    Good to see the updates for Wyatt will be back for the 2018-2019 season. In regards to Goalkeeper Gloves, there are many American glove brands that I can recommend, the main two being Gometta (LINK), and Aviata (LINK) If those don't interest you, check out this list of over 100+ glove brands.
  17. Wrist injury

    Because you mentioned a pulling feeling, I don't think you have broken a bone, but more torn a tendon/ligament, or some pressure on the carpal tunnel. I hope its nothing serious. Goodluck.
  18. Feeling scared

    Best piece of advice I can give you; if the club community and coaching staff is toxic, the best thing for your football, and mental health is to just leave. Especially in your situations, where you want to play for fun!
  19. The BIG goalkeeping glove brand list

    Another two to add to the list: Fly Goalkeeping - https://www.flygoalkeeping.com/ Arcitor - https://www.arcitor.com/ Edit: Might as well add well known Australian brand TEE-3 http://tee-3.com/Home.html
  20. Fantasy Football 2018-2019

    Looking to bounce back after my midtable finish last year.
  21. Tape is your friend.
  22. injury

    Well considering they can see the issue, and you can have a proper conversation, you're still going to find a lot more help from them than us. If your current Doctor/Physio doesn't listen, find a new one.
  23. injury

    I'd be asking your doctor/physio this question.
  24. GKTALK/CALM GLOVE COMPETITION

    Done, sounds like a worthwhile cause. I hope more people jump on this
