Barthez, i think he played as a striker once for United in pre-season.

Buffon played as a midfielder earlier in his career, and he's displayed some dribbling skills when put under pressure :star:

I've seen Dudek take a throw-in once :howler:

Barthez knew he could take his liberties with quality defenders like Wes Brown around him ;)

Paul Robinson started as an outfield player, wasn't supposed to be up to much though

Peter Schmeichel started his career as a striker, and according to what I heard, all of his then club's goalkeepers got injured, and being naturally tall and commanding, he was chosen to play in goal. He never looked back ;)

I think that Dida and Buffon can make it as an outfield player too.

Yes, against Singapore, when United won 8-1 :eek: I hear that many Singaporeans feel insulted by that.

Not me though, kind of hilarious in fact.

I think Lehmann started out as a striker. It's no wonder he got shoved at the back since his kicking is so awful.

Molina(Deportivo) first game with the Spanish NT was not as a GK,but as a midfielder. :pp
It was in a friendly game in Norway,Spain had made all the substitutions and some player got injured,so the only player left in the bench came in:Molina.
He played 30 minutes and nearly scored a goal from a midrange shot.He absolutely hold his own :howler:

I remember him as a low-class defender against La Coruna, once

van der Sar, in Holland he is known as a goalie who can also actually do something with the ball besides hoofing it upfield. In his Ajax days he was very well known for it.
