    Watching MOTD there tonight there were some awesome saves from keepers. Yes we have our own Lloris, then De Gea, Cortois and Cech with City's new guy looking very good. I rated Picford highly before his Everton move but watching keepers like Pope and Lossal tonight, made me wonder. We have Hart and Begorvic also who divide opinion but on a whole I'd say not many other league sources have such good stoppers, am I wrong?

    Being serious now, the only other keepers that i believe are in the "world class" category are Jan Oblak (He is amazing!), Manuel Neuer and Gianluigi Donnarumma (Unbelievable for 18 years old!)
    We will never see Neuer in the prem now, but Oblak and Donnarumma are possible for the future. If Hugo ever left Oblak would be the player I would love to see replace him, but the cost may be inhibitive I think.

    Samir Handanovic is excellent, Scezney has improved a lot in Italy and Pepe Reina is still dependable.

    Neuer is the most overrated keeper ever, he so often lets goals in at the near post but is lauded for being the guy in goal of a team that has 90% possession a good defence

    Give it time and I'm sure we'll see Joe Hart do it.

    ...If we are speaking Italy, surely Buffon too? even if he does retire at the end of the season..

    Probably not because Joe Hart and Simon Mignolet horribly bring down the leagues average talent.

    Lol! Took his eye off the ball, and the existence of the penalty spot seemed to confuse him...it's white and round, but it ain't a sphere.
