I remember Gullit saying once after a match where the keeper made a big mistake: "keepers are keepers because they can't play football".
The 5 seconds silence in the studio of BBC's "Match of the day" is still carved in my memory.

'keeping' is a very specialist position and it is one of the hardest position to play in football as you have to keep your concentration for the whole 90 mins.
Outfield players make a mistake.. and there is always someone to cover for them. A 'keepers makes a mistake and its a goal!
