Maarten Stekelenburg, Roma, Age: 29
Would be on the list if I made it a top 30. Same applies with Federico Marchetti.
Shay Given, Aston Villa, Age: 35
Ali Al-Habsi and Wayne Hennessey have played better and they aren’t on the list, so Given won’t be on the list.
Pepe Reina, Liverpool, Age: 29
His form has been sporadic and there’s a reason why he hasn’t won the Premier League Golden Glove in the past three seasons.
Petr Čech, Chelsea, Age: 29
Thankfully he showed up against Napoli. The fact he’s still performing at an acceptable level is a testament to his perseverance in overcoming such an unfortunate accident. Maybe I should lower the expectation levels because he’ll never get back to the dominant Čech.
Roman Weidenfeller, Borussia Dortmund, Age: 31
I don't really rate Weidenfeller. He's very lucky to have a world-class centre-back in Mats Hummels as a teammate.
Júlio César, Inter Milan, Age: 32
Has been substandard.
Igor Akinfeev, CSKA Moscow, Age: 25
Has been out with injury since August 2012.
Fernando Muslera, Galatasaray, Age: 25
I haven’t watched Muslera since the Copa América because I don’t have satellite access to the Turkish Süper Lig. If you’re Turkish or you regularly watch the Süper Lig, please opine.
Vincent Enyeama, Lille, Age: 29
Current status: benchwarmer.
Steve Mandanda, Marseille, Age: 26
Aléxis Thébaux and Steeve Elana have played better and they’re not on the list, so Mandanda won’t be on the list.
