Does anyone else kinda miss awful keepers?

Recommended Posts

If you go back through the World Cups there were some hilariously bad and out-of-depth goalkeepers at the tournaments. This year, everyone seems to be competent. 

(Sorry about the awful commentary, couldn't find a better video).

Brazil goalkeeper Alisson is a good goalkeeper (better than Ederson) but he has potential to entertain sometimes too, like he did against Ecuador in Copa América:

He constantly looked he could fumble any shot up until this season.
Amazing improvement, really. Salah-level, I'd say.

To fix the topic title, I miss awful English keepers. :D

Yes, he used to be a very insecure goalkeeper and I still don't trust him. I don't trust Ederson for that matter as he can be a bit reckless...

Well we hardly have Joe Hart in goal so it's not gonna be a total catastrophe.

If you want comically bad goalkeeping, watch this. There's a reason they pulled Bruce Grobbelaar out of retirement immediately afterwards. Pay special attention to the 6th goal.

Nah I went through the team lists and there's no-one who really stands out as "how the hell did he get a call up?".

Only decades ago, like Banks and Shilton.

Seaman was good tbf. Not much since then though.

Liked to chuck one in, between Hollywood saves. Never rated him. Only capped so much because other English keepers were complete garbage.

British but not English, but Neville Southall was very good too.

Yeah. Women's football seems to be going through the same phase that male football does when the players are 13 years old, i.e. the enthusiastic but overweight kid with no actual ability gets thrown between the sticks.

He could block the goal without moving.

Southall wasn't 'very good', he was exceptional. One of the greatest of all time.

In the 80s Merseyside had the best goalkeepers.

Well, Argentina's trio is hardly awe-inspiring...

Caballero is a backup at club level and for very good reasons. The other two guys, well, who are they again?

Two dudes in their 30s, so not even like they've gone "**** it" and given a young up and coming keeper some vital experience as 3rd choice.

I know teams like to pass around at the back but when you’re so exposed you can’t play around with your Willy. 

Where’s the fire emoji?

Saudi Arabia has a knack for selecting goalkeepers

 

Most teams opt to select a goalkeeper, Just not the saudis, pft, racist.

well done Lloris, making the Spurs proud as well

to be fair to Lloris his mishap was by trying to use his feet, Karius twice fecked up with the main instruments a goalie uses

would be great timing for an own line of gloves actually
