you see better saves every other week in other top leagues of football such as la liga, serie a, bundisliga etc
but ofc when youre limited to only watching 5 or 6 games a year that come on itv then you make assumptions such as this one...best save of all time lmao...
I've watched every single PL match of the last 10 seasons (many live, the rest through highlights), the majority of big European games in the continent and the majority of European cup matches as well. I've been a Chelsea season ticket holder for 13 years and have been to almost all our away games in Europe this season. I've watched el Clasico 3 times live - twice in Madrid, once in Barcelona, as well as Milan vs Juventus and Milan vs Inter at the San Siro.
I know more about football than you can conceivably imagine and have even got a few things published for the Telegraph. Like I said I'm a goalkeeper myself and I know the difference between a world class save and one you'd expect any keeper worth his salt to make. ALSO as I said the difference between this save and any other match in La Liga or Serie A was that it won the game and the FA Cup for Chelsea and hence was a hell of a lot more important than any of the others. Now jog on pondlife.
For the record I'm a goalkeeper myself. Please discuss.
An awesome save, but not one of the best ever.
I have, however, gone on record as saying it's probably up there with Montgomery's double save for Sunderland against Leeds in the FA Cup final (as one of the top saves in FA Cup finals) and I stand by that. But there's a lot more to world football than FA Cup finals.
It's still inconclusive from everything I've seen whether it was actually a goal or not; the frame they kept showing on ITV with the ball 3/4 over the line was like a millisecond after Cech had actually touched the ball with his hand, and also at an angle not in line with the goal line
I'd say it was surely one of the best saves ever probably. Could be an addition to the video below, but whether its THE best save, I personally wouldn't say. 4, 3, 2, and 1 in the following video are all so breath-taking saves!
