    This time, I can write about the theme because the
    GKs of Brasil never was of 1st line (sorry, Gilmar dos
    Santos Neves).

    Of course, there're many great GK: Sepp Mayer, Ubaldo
    Fillol, Oliver Kahn, Jean-Marie Pfaff, Dino Zoff etc.

    But the best was, is and always will be LEV YASHIN.

    Pat jennings was QUALITY! i remember watching him at the Lane in the 70s (before he went to ARSenal in '77:'() What a keeper.

    At present i like Oliver Kahn and also Casillas of Real...he makes such a diffirence to them.

    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.

    as someone who plays in goal..... i regent that statement🙄

    '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!

    Probably the depth of his idea was kinda lost in translation.

    The keeper was trying to kick out the ball with his foot and obviously missed the ball. I guess he was refering to that kind of skills.

    Best I have seen without doubt is Peter Schmeichel.

    Although I believe that it is widely accepted that Gordan Banks was/is the best.

    Walter Zenga without question.

    "Since 1990 Zenga holds the record for most minutes without conceding a goal in the FIFA World Cup; he was not beaten for 518 minutes in total."
