Football Funnies – The Goalkeepers Union

Football FunniesThe specialised and individual nature of the goalkeeper role has always meant that practitioners of the position – especially error-prone ones – offer up plenty of easy material for humorists.

This edition of Football Funnies duly features a selection of goalkeeping-themed cartoons reproduced from old football periodicals like Charles Buchan Monthly, Goal and Shoot. Our motley array of doltish cartoon keepers are cast as devious cheats, easily distracted by the fairer sex, grossly physically deficient, curiously inspired by the gymnast Olga Corbett or, most commonly, just plain inept.
