Found a lump under my armpit. First it was miniature. The pain was not felt. Now rubbing and growing. My friends such do not. Recently found out that it can be serious disease. But I think, just fatty lump. Found clear information about this lump. Now I'm not afraid of bad diagnosis. Everything is clear and detail is written down to the smallest detail. Many have problems with the armpits. There are a lot of bacteria. Then formed balls. They can be painful, but not always. It is better to know in advance about this problem. Then there will be no fear of horror. Good, that now I understand this. small painful lump under armpit

petar pery   August 6, 2016 at 5:19 pm
beara is the best goalkeeper!
That Guy   June 27, 2016 at 4:42 pm
I think Neuer should have made it. mayby Cech should have made it. Possibly De Gea now that hes pretty good.
DAVIDINHO10   June 18, 2016 at 8:08 am
Mark gwilliam   June 13, 2016 at 9:48 pm
Michel preud'homme, belgian goalkeeper should be in there without doubt
Abraham   June 2, 2016 at 3:04 pm
David degea is now better, hope now he should be among
Barrowjohn   May 28, 2016 at 11:20 am
Neville Southall should be on that list. At the top.

neuer re defined the GK position. his physical and technical abilities are ahead of the others, to date. you can watch buffon,casillas, zoff, maier and all the rest and see the same level. they are good but not special.

I believe that Manuel Nouer is the greatest keeper ever
year of the dog   February 13, 2016 at 12:55 pm
Pumpido of Argentina may not have been amongst the best but in my opion his low trajectory kicks revolutionised ball distribution for GK's.

Lev Yashins record speaks for itself and is simply phenomanal. He never played with a club that is considered amongst the elite in world football yet he managed to keep close to 500 clean sheets in 812 career matches. Add to that 150 penalty saves and a Euro title with the USSR, then one can only conclude that Lev was truly the greatest GK ever!! He played before my time and i've had the pleasure of watching many great GK'since but none better and more consistant than Gigi Buffon. Buffon has the skill,technique and temperament which stands him above the rest in my 35+ years watching football.

to me : 1-yashin 2-dino zoff 3-Gordon banks 4-casillas 5-buffon 6-Peter Schmeichel 7-kahn 8-Sepp Maier 9-Manuel Neuer 10-peter shilton

Gyula Grocics - Hungarian Golden Team of the 1950's - Inventor of the sweeper-keeper. How did a man that developed a style of play that is very prevalent today and a great shot stopper not get into the top ten? Was he forgotten? Easily amongst the world's best and worthy of a spot.

Roman   November 7, 2015 at 7:13 pm
must be an english list. Banks as Number 2, very funny. And Shilton top ten is a joke. I am no friend of italian football, but I am watching world football since 50 years and for me it is clear that Buffon is No 1. He was incredible. Neuer is missing on this list. And Mayer was certainly better than Banks or Shilton. Casillas is overrated.
