|Hard work pays off|
|Around the Academy:
I think it's best to catch, rather than punch the ball. If you can get two fists to the ball, why not catch it?
Although today's ball swerves so much, I believe that if you work hard enough in training then you should still be able to catch it.
And the defining moment of my playing days was, in fact, a catch whilst playing for Man United.
I'll never forget the save I made to prevent Eusebio scoring in the 1968 European Cup final at Wembley.
With the score at 1-1 in the last few moments of normal time, I was caught slightly out of position.
For a moment I thought that I might get chipped.
So I made up my mind to try and catch it and I did what all keepers should - I stood up and kept my eye on the ball.
And when he struck it, I caught it.
When that pays off you get your just reward for all the hard work and training you put in.
The game went into extra-time and we eventually won 4-1.
Sometimes the goalkeeper, who is often less in the spotlight than his team-mates, can become the hero.
And when that happens, it's a great feeling.
