Always stand a little over to one side
Thought you might want to add this to your penalty flicks answer – a goalkeeper passed this on to me and it works really well….always stand a little over to one side – the side you don’t want the attacker to pass to! The majority of time they will pass to the other side.
This has happened every single time for me … and I easily save the stroke on my stronger side!
Thanks for sharing your experience. The one thing I would temper you with from is my experience has been that as soon as you think always, something else happens. I’ve seen keepers set up all the way to one post to give them the entire goal other side of the goal to shoot at and the stroker beat them going right where they set up at. Strokers like to play mind games just as well as keepers. I’ll never argue with what works, though, and if it works for you, keep at it.
