well 2 sets of polls will be going on at once, set-up by none other than moi

Anyway this is the Best ever Italian players poll for each position... 1 every day will be done... starting with the goalies of course!!!

The choices are as above...

I choose Dino Zoff as my number 1 goalie as Im sure many of you will but of course we have had so many other great goalies!!!

I just watched 6 of them (plus some old videos regarding Albertosi). I hardly watched Combi and Cudicini Sr.

A goalie consists of many parts: 1 vs 1, saving long shots, middle shots, saving PKs, behaviour out of the goal, holding high balls,organizing the defense.

Buffon is the most complete in my opinion. Zoff had problems with long shots. Zenga had serious problems when going out of the goal and with high balls (see Italia 90 and his two seasons at Samp :fero: ) and was a mediocre PK keeper. Tacconi was average. Pagliuca was better then Tacconi and Zenga, but not super, rather, his saves where spectaculars cause he dived as if he was at circus.

Zoff is a legend and won the wc with Italy in 1982, but i honestly think that Buffon is a better keeper. But he must win something big first.

The best is Buffon - "The Maradona of Goalkeepers". But as always, people tend to vote on the old legends.
