Been thinking about goals lately. Not the kind you score but the ones you score into.
Tournaments will typically have well built goal frames with nets. There doesn’t seem to be a standard build and it would be really great to add some images of all your pro goals right here.
But what about throw-ins? I can’t count how many times we’ve gone on the hunt for street cones, got a good days use out of them, and then returned to see them missing or chewed up by dogs! So sometimes we end up using our bags. It’s like being back in the school playground.
Polo has to go on, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a permanent goal? I can’t see this happening for a while so what are our choices? What is everyone else using? Do us a favour and let us know.
I was thinking about better, removable, more reliable goals that we could play with. How about a cone which is more straight with no stick out base? (We would need to lock them up though) What about having nets? A cross bar? A fold up goal which can easily be carried?
All nice ideas but right now it’s not really happening. But we can’t go on like this surely!…
There’s nothing quite like shooting against a decent goal!
Elasticated belt barriers perhaps?
