Liviu Bird is a young goalkeeper who hails from Alaska. His family background in Romanian, and he will shortly begin University studies in Seattle, Washington.
He has written for Soccerlens, a very good UK-based site, along with Keeper Skool (who are another great site based in Australia and devoted exclusively to the science and art of goalkeeping).
He plays for the Seattle Wolves, who are a semi-professional side, and has aspirations to play professionally. Since MLS will soon have a new team in Seattle, perhaps Liviu is in the right place at the right time. :-)
Please take a look at his highlight video.
"This is a compilation of my distribution, coming off the line, and shot stopping highlights from 2006 to 2007. These videos were taken at the 2006 Nomads Thanksgiving Tournament in San Diego, California and the 2007 SC del Sol President's Day Tournament in Phoenix, Arizona. I played for the Alaska Northstars State Select Team in both of these tournaments. Jeremy Hinshaw filmed all matches."
