Over the years ive always thought what a nice gesture it is when the goalkeeper comes down to the gwladys end (park end end as well i imagine...not posh enough for that end :P) and the crowd clap.

I know they do it at Analfield, but is it common at every ground?

Jaaskelainen? I think that's how you spell it anyway :huh:

I think it's nice that we do it but I don't know about at other grounds.

It is good. But you do get a few knobheads. Jaaskelainen and Lehmann come to mind.

Dont think a lot of grounds do.

The Kharkiv keeper didn't acknowledge it which was a shame. Maybe not common practise in the Ukraine.

I don't think its that common. My experience of lower league football is to boo and abuse the keeper as much as possible

i would second that Jamie, Last sesason when i had a ST for S'port, Keepers got abused so much.

The only time we clapped them was when they fell over when taking a Goal kick

According to Billy Smith's Account of the 1888/89 season, we were doing it then so we've been doing it for at least 120 years!

How good's that. Even Liverpool's goalie gets clapped, I think he does anyway?
