    Name another keeper that was world class for 20 years. Buffon is the easy choice.

    Neuer from what I've seen, but I've heard Yashin was the man.

    Buffon's last 3 major finals.
    2012: Spain vs Italy 4-0
    2015: Barca vs Juve 3-1
    2017: Real vs Juve 4-1

    11 goals?

    And he was at fault for literally 0 of those. The defense in front of him in those games was abysmal.

    You also failed to mention that he conceded 0 non own-goals up until the final in 2006.

    Of the keepers I’ve watched in Buffon but I think De Gea is one of the best shot stoppers I’ve ever seen

    Is David Seaman really the third best goalkeeper that England have ever had?

    I'm only gonna consider the ones I'm old enough to have seen, and of those I'll take Neuer over Buffon or Casillas.

    Ray Clemence maybe, he didn't have much success with the NT, but did extremely well with Liverpool.

    Voted for Yashin because from everything I've heard about him, he was incredible and helped usher in the role of the goalie controlling and organizing his backline. In my lifetime, Neuer, followed probably by Buffon and Casillas.

    There are a lot of players where nostalgia or legend overtakes facts and actually impact on the game and players of a bygone era end up being overrated.

    That, however - according to everything I've read (because I've never watched Yashin play a game, just highlights) - is not the case here.
    By all accounts, he changed how goalkeepers play - he was the first "Neuer" of the game and was fantastic in every aspect of the game.

    Yashim is my vote purely based on highlights I’ve seen and what I’ve read.

    I will say though, United May suck at scouting players, but their goal tending scouting has been great throughout the years.

    It does appear that way but I question whether the same team of scouts that targeted Schmeichel way back then is the same that targeted De Gea all those years later. It’s true that there have been mostly studs in there though. Barthez not withstanding.

    Does it really take a genius scout to recognize DDG talent though?

    There were a few flops in there. Schmeicel was incredible Barthez was wildly inconsistent. Howard was a damn good goalie, just not an elite one. There’s that Italian guy who’s name I can’t remember who was a big flop. But then they found VDS who was incredible and then replaced him with DDG. So I mean obviously not a 100% record but really well.

    His transfer was a PL record for a keeper at the time, and he played all 38 la liga matches for Atleti the year before, so no. He wasn't exactly unknown, no.

    I would say that his beginning at United was rough, and I wonder if he was 21-22 years old now struggling that way for a top club if he'd even last. The way things are now.
