Barthez was a great keeper and probably the best until he lost the plot and started flapping like a smackhead without his fix :rolleyes:
Van der sar feels the most dependable keeper since schmeichel so i'd rather have him than anyone else ... I can't ever see fergie spending mega bucks for a keeper, so hopefully ben foster recovers well from his injury and lives up the promise of the last two seasons ready to take over from VDS

I think that if his head had'nt been used as a ball then Gary Walsh could have become a great home grown keeper. Are we all forgetting Taibi as consistancy is paramount with a goalie and thats the one thing he had. No seriously it has to be Van der sar for me and i totally agree with missing out on him earlier.

Now I think there were worse than Carroll, like Taibi, sticks out in my mind so easily and Ricardo. Ok he hasn't played many games but common if you can't get ahead of a team that has Howard and Carroll and a Dodgy Barthez then you must really suck.

Definitely VDS for consistency and confidence, you never worry when you see him between the sticks. Carroll was alright, Howard was quite good and was unlucky to fall foul of SAF, Barthez was as good as he was unpredictable. Bosnich was a fat mess and Van der Gouw was only ever replacement standard.
