    An 'official' (:dontknow:) compilation of Buffon's top 10 saves :coma: :

    One of the greatest keepers of all time. Probably the best I've seen in my lifetime. Great performances domestically, in Europe and internationally.

    I love the absolute look of disbelief on the faces of the strikers as they realize their shot was saved (Inzaghi's reaction is priceless).

    Buffon is one of my (many) goalkeeping idols - such incredible reflexes.

    Admittedly, I'd be expecting him to save the Lurling effort and Zidane's second one (which is straight at him, even if at pace), but he's up there on my list as one of the all-time greats:

    Yashin, Maier, Tomaszewski, Zoff, Schmeichel, Kahn, Buffon, and to an extent, Seaman.

    Although I also like Aurrecochea just for being so mental. :lol:

    I think just for pure entertainment and craziness my favourite goalkeeper is René Higuita.

    Re the Buffon comp, what was the last one appealing for? Sympathy?

    He is without doubt the best goalkeeper of the last 15 years or so.

    Inzaghi's reaction is priceless.

    I also thought Zidane's frustration in the international was funny: it comes right after the CL one, so it's almost like Buffon spends all his time thwarting Zidane and the latter going 'Oh come on...'

    It's Buffon's way of getting back at Zidane for having the audacity to chip a penalty against him (in a World Cup final against the best keeper in the world - utterly ridiculous).

    Would be 1-0 to QPR if we had goal line technology/the officials paying attention :rolleyes:

    Given the amount of red cards Stoke accumulate, they should just start every match with 10 men :jester:

    May I add, that was a horrific stamp. Disgraceful.

    Not the worst stamp I've ever seen, but still utterly intentional, unnecessary and disgraceful.

    In their last 22 games Fleetwood have picked up a total of 60 points out of 66... As much as they're annoying me because they just won't slip up and they are the club with all the money in this league and lure all the decent players offering 3 times more than what other clubs offer, i think they deserve a bit of credit for that stat.

    It's like Crawley last season though - the step up to League Two is massive and only really doable if you have the money.

    Its not the step up to league football thats the problem, the gap between league two --> bsp isn't that significant. The problem is getting out of the division in the first place due to the 1 automatic promotion place bottleneck. Just look at the amount of full time ex league clubs down there who still get average attendances of 3k plus, then those who are rising through the leagues (Wimbledon, Fleetwood etc). There badly needs to be another promotion place, imo.
    Completely agree! The step up isn't that much of a change. I rather watch us play a team like Cambridge than someone like Accrington. The teams that come down from League 2 tend to struggle in the first season, just like Stockport and Lincoln have done this season. Even we did four seasons ago. We were mid-table for two seasons, it was only last season we were in the play-offs before completely messing up in the semis and we will be in the play-offs again this season as i don't think we'll be able to take it off Fleetwood now.

    It's frustrating there is only one place available that is automatic, which is why it's been impossible for the teams that drop down to get back up. This is one of the best seasons Wrexham have had in such a long time and i don't even think we'll get anything from it. And i honestly think for us to survive we need to get out of this league and i don't think it'll happen this season.
