001 that odds a great read. One of the best you have done. I would imagine you could have filled pages with stories about him. He is responsible for the way a lot of keepers and coaches look at and play the keeper game today. Mad as a box of frogs but a true legend of the game imo.
Great article. i'm sure your list is very extensive but if you get a chance and the data is available i think sir Stanley Mathews would be a good subject. A player that by all accounts was years ahead of his time and could still play today with his style I'd love to see an article like that on him. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - thank you ken, glad you enjoyed that. You are right, the hardest part was what to leave out, there is enough material to write a full book on him. He was brilliant and a much better player than he is given credit for.

I have added Matthews to the list, that is a great shout. He was obsessive about physical fitness, in a way none of his contemporaries were, which is why he played into his 50s.}

Have you considered maybe doing a book? Either full length on Higuita or maybe on a selection of players.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, but then you have to get a publisher etc.}

Cheers ed. Ill look forward to that one.

{Ed001's Note - glad to hear it mate. I look forward to learning more about these players while doing the research as well. I wish I had started doing these articles years ago now.}

Could always self publish ed.

{Ed001's Note - true, I have thought about it, writing books is what I always wanted to do. You have a point, I will look into it.}
