'To be able to work well in the box, I believe you have to be able to think qoutside the boxq' - a fascinating insider account of the Premier League and life at the top level of football from one of the country's best-rated goalkeepers. Goalkeepers have an unusual view of the world, but Brad Friedel's is more unusual than most. An American, a university graduate, a visionary and a deep thinker, he spurns football culture to concentrate on his game and develop his ideas. One of the most highly-rated - and experienced - goalkeepers in the country, Friedel endured a five-year battle to play in the Premier League. His incredible journey took him from three World Cup tournaments, spells with foreign clubs, and finally to the top flight at Blackburn Rovers and Aston Villa. Friedel's inspirational story provides true perspective and takes us outside the box and inside the world of professional football in a way only he can.... investments UCLA ; and Friedel; athletics budget; alumni; and Olympics, UEFA UEFA Cup Ukrop, Rob Ulsan Umland, ... and World Cup ; football fans University of Southern California Unsworth, David, Uruguay US Cup US football team;anbsp;...
