About Shaka

Former pro for Reading, Newcastle, West Ham, Portsmouth and FC Dallas. Proud to have won 26 caps for Trinidad and Tobago. Current ESPN analyst, lifetime member of the Goalkeepers Union.

On Shaka Hislop’s Ministry Of Glove, I’ll mainly focus on the fascinating game within in a game that is goalkeeper.
I’ll give my honest opinion, hopefully using some of the insight I’ve gained from my years in the game. Sometimes there’ll be detailed analysis and other times it’ll be more like a hunch. But above all there will be an appreciation for the people doing this unusual art at all levels of the game.

I want Shaka Hislop’s Ministry Of Glove to be a place for discussion and debate on goalkeeping and other pressing issues in the beautiful game. We may not always agree, but we can always enjoy making our arguments!

You can give me a shout on Twitter where I’m @ShakaHislop.

I look forward to hearing from you.
