All Lehmann had were some bits of paper stuck in his socks that told him which way he should dive.Foster has taken cheat sheets to a new level.He had an ipod stuck in his socks and on it he was watching footage of Tottenham Hotspur’s penalty-takers shortly before the fateful penalty shootout between the two teams that decided the winner of the Carling Cup.The video had been prepared by Eric Steele, United’s goalkeeping coach.
“I had been told that if O’Hara took a kick from the spot then I should stand up and be strong and that he would probably put the ball to my left,” Foster said. The evidence had been presented on video only seconds earlier and, sure enough, O’Hara put the ball exactly where Foster had been shown that he would.Lehmann's method has been rendered obsolete by the relentless march of technology.No wonder he is throwing shoes at his goalpost..!
