After all this talk of DDG, I've been thinking - who are the top 10 goalkeepers in the world at the moment. Here's my list:
1) Manuel Neuer
2) Courtois (close 2nd)
3) David De Gea
4) Buffon
5) Bravo
6) Hart
7) Ter Stegen
8) Lloris
9) Keylor Navas (On the basis of potential)
10) Diego Alves (very underrated)

Just outside top 10 in no particular order - Ospina, Handanovic, Tim Howard (most underrated), Enyeama, Diego Lopez, Casillas (yes i still think he has quality), Forster, Kameni, Oblak.
I'd put Bravo on the same shelf as DDG. De Gea is one of those 'spectacular' goalkeepers, much like Keylor Navas, because of their incredible cat-like saves. But Bravo has excellent reflexes too and more than that, he makes everything look easy. His goalkeeping composure and intelligence are worth more than even better reflexes.

Also don't think Ter Stegen is a top 10 GK yet. He'll definitely get there soon, but he was a bit too unreliable, too erratic last season.

My top 10 would therefore look very similar, but with DDG and Bravo on a shared top 3 spot instead. It's quite hard to make a top list for goalkeepers either, because so many really top goalkeepers play for lesser teams. Valencia just bought Matt Ryan, for example. He was by far and away the best goalkeeper in Belgium for 2 straight years. He could be just as good in Spain, because the qualities a top GK needs are less influenced by the players surrounding him than those of field players.
wheres cech lol

but on a serious note, imo De Gea > Courtois
+1
Yeah Cech is missing. Probably slots into the top 5 somewhere, definitely top 10.
Jan Vertonghen said in an interview on Belgian TV that the Premier League is probably the most difficult league because there's so much pressure and less stability, but when answering the question if it was the best he said Spain's Liga is definitely better. He argued the money is what makes England's top division so strong over the whole competition but immediately said that Spain still has 5 teams in the CL despite that difference and England does worse in Europe every year.

That's literally the first EPL star I've heard admitting their league wasn't the best and going a step further and saying that all that money might not make the competition stronger. Couldn't suppress a big smile when he said that :)
We signed Vermaelen last year because we knew we'd get the ban for this year. That way it felt as if we had a brand new top defender signed this summer and the ban felt like it never happened.

Zubi was a brilliant director of football after all!
The injury was also planned so Vermaelen is fresh and feels like s**t so he can use his motivation to destroy our opponents. Well played Zubi, well played!
+1
Hope Vermaelen remains our top scorer lol
Goodness me. Footytube added a mobile site. Looks completely different.

I was in the mobile site. I thought everything was jus gone. That stressed me little! Fix it pls

Does any body knows how much money FT generates for its founders/owners ?


pissed me off all day, couldnt even access arsenal page.
+1
I'm sorry but does it really makes any difference ? most of the time i spent on FT in through my mobiles ( which includes my crappy 3GS ) and i never had any issue with it apart from not being able to use meebo but then meebo is gonna since ages .

TBH i really hate using mobile sites , compactness of some of mobile site leaves me quite frustrated

Hey guys. The devs just ran it through. This is the basic framework, the forum option is yet to be added, soon I hope. For now the best way to get around the mobile site is to set your profile page as your home page or a bookmark and start from there. Then click on your team on the trending bar and you should get to the forums. There's bugs to be fixed yet and it should be much more funtional after the options bar is upgraded. Bare with us for now, thanks.

Even if you reach mobile site scroll down and click desktop site and find your team.

^That works too. Its not difficult. We'll have the link to tge forums on the mobile options soon.
Sources at madrid are claiming a new technology that was just installed at real madrid offices is responsible for the DDG transfer debacle. Real madrid staff thought they were getting an upgrade with the new fax machine because their old pigeon messaging system for transfers was taking, well, a lot of time resulting in buying players with hyper inflated prices like Bale. Perez has vowed to get the best technicians to fix their fax machine. Unfortunately most of these fax technicians are 70+ year old men who are either retired or almost senile.

For now they have gone back to their old trusted italian pigeon, Giancarlo to communicate with Fifa and get DDG home. Giancarlo is known as Ronaldo of pigeon messaging with numerous best messenger awards to his name. His signature move is a vertical dive at the delivery point. Giancarlo left real madrid offices last night and is expected to arrive in Geneva by the end of the week.

and yesterday they posted this :D

Here footage of Perez trying to open the file

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2H7NZ0GNIIE
Okay so now it official , no De gea for Madrid , he stays with united .
You gotta feel bad for navas. He wasn't given a chance with Casillas around and now he was being discarded for perez' new toy.

Imagine being a madrid player who's name isn't ronaldo, bale, james or ramos. Everybody except these stars are expendable. Navas with madrid is like a wife whose husband wants to leave her for someone else but has to stick around until her husband can figure out a way to be with his new love. Two world class keepers get the real madrid treatment in two consecutive years.
+2
^ true that but this time at least fans are apparently on navas side

I know I'm late, but I have been sort of busy lately and unable to access the internet as much. Speaking of our game with Malaga we played really well. The only thing I have to question is the ref. It seems like for years now refs constantly screw us especially on penalty calls. There were 3 legitimate penalty calls in this game alone. They all happened in front of the refs and he waved all of them on.

I know this is a conspiracy, but the only time we get screwed this hardcore by the refs is when it's in a Spanish competition. Champion's league seems to be much better with their refs. La liga refs already suck as is, but when we play it's just a joke on how many penalties they let go. It's unfair and makes La liga that much harder to win. It makes it more incredible that we win La liga so often as I feel like it's the same story every year.
You heard what Simeone said, right?

"Dangerously complicated for any team other than Real Madrid because it can't happen that Real Madrid wins only one league after seven years. So, I see [the Liga title race] dangerously prepared for Real Madrid, sadly."

Now, it's just gonna be a self-fulfilling prophecy for the rest of us.
Simeone basically justified every single controversial decision that goes agains Atletico this season. When a situation like that appears,he'll just say: what did I tell you, Real it's all Real.
+1
Have to agree with Pejvl. Simeone did a mourinho and pulled some reverse psychology. just by saying that he puts himself in a win win situation in which case only barca winning the league will make him be wrong.
+1
I have never read that from Simeone! See although it could be taken as a move there could be some truth behind it. If you think of the political tension, Barcelona has dominated Spain for a decade. Madrid have been receiving an abnormal amount of penalties in the league for simple things while we get rugby tackled and get nothing. Not saying that they are paying refs off or anything because I don't know. I just know there is a campaign against Barcelona. We were hit with everything by the media of false allegations, unfair punishments to our players, and even the ban itself from FIFA.

I just feel like one team dominating Europe and Spain this much can't be good on the economy of other teams. I personally think that refs favor Madrid to Barcelona because of the political tensions, but these days I'm really not sure what to think. Hundreds of matches in Europe were either accused or been fixed over the past few years as well as the whole FIFA corruption scandals really makes you wonder. People would call those who said FIFA was corrupt conspiracy theorists, but in Football you can never be too sure.

My point is though in the past few years Barcelona have definitely been getting screwed by referees and it needs to stop. Someone in our camp really needs to complain even if it means getting some form of Ban. Standing up for whats right creates attention on the subject which is much better than sitting and letting it happen while our players suffer and take hard hits all game long with no foul or card.
"I just know there is a campaign against Barcelona"
you, mourinho, are a barca fan...i knew it from the very beginning :P
I have yet to understand why we never get any penalties. Barca have to be the team or at least one of the teams that has the most time spent in the opponents box and they never get calls their way. It happens, but we get fouled so often and almost never get a PK. Frustrating to watch and incredibly biased from referees.
+2
Simeone said it best. Madrid is due to win the league this year and Spain will do everything it can to make sure the title goes to Madrid..
+4
Simeone is already scared is what i read from this...its the same as mourinho saying Barca are helped all the time
+2
Except Mourinho's words usually have no factual evidence supporting his claims.
The whole Neymar transfer saga now seems like the deal of the century now that United signed Martial for 80m. Who is he? Haven't even heard him in FIFA lol
+11
Any player transferred from Barca should be free, any player that wants to go from any other team... 100m.

I gave up on transfer logic a long time ago.
They signed Martial FOR 80 MILLION? HE IS 19 YEARS OF AGE...
+1
Its not 80m. Everywhere I've read it's £36m which is around €50m. With variables it might be another €5m.
+2
36m pounds is the official amount. Still massively overpaid.
@Badge

Monaco confirmed 80m (euros). So, you're correct in saying 36m pounds (which is about 50m euros) + 30m in variables.

Let's hope this guy has huge potential and proves everyone wrong.
I... I refuse to believe you :'(
But then wouldn't the add-ons only apply if he absolutely kills it?
+1
Btw , our ban is officially over !!!

#FIFALONA #ALLHAILZUBI #THANKSFORMAKINGUSBETTER
+4
but can we use Arda or Aleix yet?
Nope. But we can in January and we can buy more players muhahaha

#WhatDoesntKillYouMakesYouStronger #cheatingthesystem
+1
We should sign DDG in January and loan him out to Atletico permanently.

Men this s**t is getting real crazy , initially reports in Spain were that United send the documents exactly a minute late and now its been said that United sent the papers on time it was Madrid that was having trouble opening the doc due to format ;')
not only that, reports are coming out now that if this deal indeed doesn't go through, Madrid are snitching on United to UEFA

hahahahah
