    I'd say its more between Rob Green and Khalid Askri

    Pepe Reina - alright hes made a couple of mistakes recently but otherwise hes the best in the world, his distribution is second to none, and as his display yesterday shows hes a great shot stopper.

    but can't get in the spanish side.



    National sides are political, and Casillas was the long standing first choice and captain. He was never gona be dropped, if you asked most fans who'd they prefer I wonder what they'd say.

    If you look at other national sides world class players often can't make the first eleven, for example Milito and Higuain at Argentina, Fabregas at Spain, and Wright - Phillips at England (ahem)....

    id say reina or buffon or cesar

    probably cesar edges it

    I'd honestly have to say Craig Gordon must be in top five at least. However Reina,Cech,Buffon and Casillas are all contenders.

    Reina or Cech, Casillas is good but hes a love child.

    oO

    top 10 or 15 maybe but top 5 no lol

    seeing as youve mentioned cech, reina, casilas and buffon, your statement implies that craig gordon is better than julio cesar lol, id also put rene adler, sebastien frey and hugo lloris ahead of gordon and thats just off the top of my head lol

    I'd say Shay Given is right up there always puts in great performances and isn't really prone to mistakes.

    ps Starr- Blu Rays were sent didn't wanna bump thread saying and get done by mods for it

    At the risk of being argumentative. Not mentioning cesar does not imply the guy doesn't rate him. Probably just didn't think of him. Saying that tonypop will no doubt shwo me up after i post this.

    I think Gordon is substantially better than Frey and Iloris, neither of them are comfortable with balls in the air and for the majority of time lack a bit of bravery.

    I would say Casillas is better than Reina, simply beacuse he has practically been the only thing that has kept Real Madrid from losing a lot of their games for the past 10 years. As to who is the best overall, well i think this thread says it all: there is no one whos stands out above the rest.

    Frey is one of the best in the world, I have seen him first hand against both Liverpool and Ireland, and he was outstanding both times. He certainly does not lack bravery - he nearly got his head taken off by going for the same ball as Robbie Keane

    Your reason for Casillas being better than Reina doesn't stand up either, I would say players like Zidane and Ronaldo have had more to do with Madrid not losing. If Casillas wasn't Spanish and hadn't come up through the Real ranks its questionable whether he would have been at the club as long as he has

    What a silly thing to say. If Reina didn't play for Liverpool and hadn't even came to England its questionable whether you would like you do. Equally valid statement and adds nothing to the debate, much like your statement.

    Ah, you may snigger my son,but once Craig Gordon was fully fit and got a good full season behind him,then you would see how good he actually is,I agree Julio Cesar is up there but certainly don't agree that Lloris or Frey are better,much preferred . You may be choosing these guys on the basis that they play for big clubs,however there are other excellent keepers like Pletikosa(Croatia) Eduardo(Portugal).It's not an easy thing to judge as many of the goalie's are consitent and make outstanding saves.
