Firstly, I am sorry for writing the Van der SAR's name wrong.
Secondly, he was a outstanding goalie for Ajax but I think by the time he came to Juve his best time was gone. I had surge of impulse which was on the verge of killing him when he made that fumble against Lazio and his misparry against Roma which led to Montella's goal. His mistake against Udinese also drives me to nuts. Also I always got a scare whenever Van der Sar was about to kick the ball. Most of time, it went out of touchline.
On the end of day, he wasn't that bad, but goalkeeper is a cruel position. If you are striker people expect you to score one out three and maybe one out two if you are a good one. But if you make a mistake as a goalkeeper then you are screwed. People will remember you on the mistake more than the good things you have done. That is just life..
P.S. World Cup didn't really miss the dutch that much.
To be honest, I have to admit as a Japanese this World Cup was not the greatest in the world. Refereeing mistakes, to low quality football in the knock out stages and ticketing farce, many aspects of the tournament could have been improved. :fero:
Most of all, the tournament missed Italia, Netherlands, Argentinians, French, Portuguese at their best. And hence why we didn't get any really memorable game in the knock out stages.
Can't believe I forgot about Henry... he's on my list too!
Here's an updated version...
1. Thierry Henry (ego bigger than Italy)
2. Edwin Van der Sar (a great keeper, but not at Juve)
3. Marcelo Salas (move your fat arse somewhere else!)
4. Fabian O'neill (What an idiot!)
5. Michele Paramatti (same as O'neill)
I've noticed that a couple of you have Baiocco on your lists... why??? What has he done wrong ??
8-zidane(the reason is because he was spectator in CL finals 97&98 while he scores the winning goal for RM last year)
