If a person is talking about his experience being a goalie in soccer, should which pronoun should he use? "His" seems grammatically correct but sounds really weird.

  • Why does it sound "really weird"? – Michael Harvey Oct 14 '18 at 14:22
  • If the person speaking is a "he", then I suppose he would say "his", if a "she" then "her". What's "weird" about that? – WS2 Oct 14 '18 at 14:33

    The only one that would sound weird is my, or his if the speaker is not a man. Their is just fine. – oerkelens Oct 14 '18 at 16:45

" His " is a possessive pronoun. It means something is owned by a man or a boy. So the use of 'his'in the sentence is correct, if the player you are talking about is a man or a boy.
