I thought Cech was superb

I wouldn't say he was superb but one of his strengths is his positioning. Yes, he has been beaten by goals perfectly hit in the corner, but those goals many keepers wouldn't have saved it anyway. Unless opponents hit the perfect shot in the corner and with pace, you're probably aint gonna beat Cech. Come on, how many "howlers" had Cech let in?? (apart from Everton's last goal recently which is more Monreal' fault for the pass).

Bob Wilson talks about perfect positioning and presence, things that you can't really teach, and something that Almunia and Fabianski didn't have. And something that we haven't had since Seaman. Mad Jens has a little of it. But he was mad and therefore you never know if he was gonna do a 'Grobelaar moment'.

I am not going to go into a debate about Cech losing some of his agility or not, but he is a proper, solid keeper, like a Peter Shilton type. I never thought Shilton was the best but with him in goal, you felt assured.

Anyway, Cech is still our best keeper, and still one of the best in the game.
