Isn't Courtois 1.99m?
Can he pass it well? I've not watched one game of him tbh..
Somewhere near 2012 or 2013 something has changed with him. It is when suddenly he talked about pressure seriously and went philosophical with his interviews. Many of them was really weird. Something happened to that guy and it is probably not football related.
I don't really think that GK in Barca is really that different in any big clubs. Manu GKs for example are killed way more with performances that Camp Nou and media in Barcelona won't even talk about. Bravo didn't look to feel the pressure here as he does in Man City.
I guess people will say that's a poor penalty, but 95% of the GKs commit to a side early. He could have shot it a bit higher and with more power though.
A penalty hit right at the keeper is a lot tougher than a normal shot. I've faced a lot of penalties and I can 100% promise you I'm taking a medium strength dive one way or another which will increase if I see I've gone the right way.
