Dudu Awat. My favourite goalkeeper and he was key in keeping Deportivo in the Primera, plus he won several points for Israel as well.

Out of the list you name, I guess I'd wait for the Euro performances to make a choice. Buffon, Casillas, Van der Sar, Coupet, etc still have a loot to win or lose at what may be the most important month of the season.

And I voted James, because it's the only year I'm ever likely to vote him for it.

And I don't really consider the euros part of the season, per se.
The Euros can make or break a season. Think for example of Toldo in 2000, he played the tournament of a lifetime while prior to that probably not too many people would have given their votes to him.

IMO several goalies are very close when looking back on their leagues, so if some of them still have a very important Euro to play this can be decisive in whom to vote for. That is if I ignore personal preferences and try to be objective.

By the way, why isn't Kahn in this list while he broke the Bundesliga for least goals against a team? Neuer and Adler in the list, but no kahn?! :confused:
Also, I'd say Boruc belongs in the list of best keepers in Europe, despite having the disadvantage of playing in a team that usually freewheels through 9 out of 10 league games.
