Was he a goalie in the past, like during his childhood?Why was he designated as goalie?

If everyone else sucks as a goalkeeper they send the tall player in because he's got more of a body to get in the way. Atleast that was the excuse here.

At Sheff Utd Phil Jagielka is a trained keeper though. Warnock doesn't always have a GK on the bench because he's confident that Jagielka could do the job.

Big Jan Koller is also a trained goalkeeper.

actually JT plays in goal a lot during training. He enjoys it apparantly and Cech and Cudicini have been coaching him for the last couple of seasons during training sessions in case a situation like this occurs. Chelsea tried a few outfield players for the task but JT was the most enthusiastic and also the more gifted of the outfield players as a goalkeeper.

Is it true Terry use to be a forward, like in his teens? Can anyone confirm this or is it just bollocks.

Wayne Rooney as well.

Oh yeah, I remember that Joga Bonito video of Rooney playing as goalie. I think that it's probably on Youtube, everything is on Youtube these days.

Glen Johnson subbed in as goalie a couple of seasons ago when Cudicini I think got a red in the FA Cup loss to Jongleurs FC and all 3 subs had been used. We lost 1-0 and finished the game with I think 7 men because of injuries, etc.
