A style of goalkeeping developed post year 2000, the main components of which are diving must be done in three installments: the initial lean, fall and then stretch. Catching is never an option, when possible try and kick the ball away instead or parry it to an attacker. When the ball comes straight at you, dive and attempt to kick it away. Always go up for corners and rush back screaming at your team mates because you've fluffed your header and left the opposition with an open net.
