    The only flaw in his game is knowing when to come out for balls into the box... you can see hes uncomfortable and gets caught in two minds, but other than that he is one of the best keepers in the world imo.

    Think thats a bit strong but he is certainly one of our better performers. Agree his main weakness is on crosses and corners, where he doesn’t really dominate the 6 yard box.

    He makes one or two clangers but doesnt seem to let it get to him.

    At his old club they used to call him Dracula because he was afraid of crosses.

    I think we'll loose him to a big European club at some point. I get the Dracula thing but basically he is a brilliant keeper. He's not a trendy, good with his feet type but really difficult to get past which at the end if the day is a goalies job.

    His feet earned us a point on Sat like.

    I really like the bloke, he has his little faults but I don't think there's a player that doesn't. We've seen some of the most expensive keepers in the world make consistant howlers (De Gea to name one). For £4m he's a ****ing steal. That being said if someone came in and offered £20m - £30m for him he'd be sold in a flash. When you look at the money being bandied about for keepers that's the going rate for him I would say.

    I would also add Kaspar Schmeichel, David De Gea and Hugo Loris (when he is fit). I think good distribution from a goalkeeper is an essential part of the mix as well, although probably doesn't make much difference for a Newcastle goalkeeper, as the rest of the twats don't seem to be able to hold on to it for long.

    Obviously he is one of the best goalies in the world - he is playing in the Premiership. According to FIFA there are 265million football players so probably 24million goalkeepers and he is probably up there in top 100.

    Yep. I qualified your statement as it was the only way we could both agree. Compared to the 22million other goalies in the world Dubravka is up their with the best (but obviously not quite up with the very best goalies in the world).

    Plus they’re usually not that far away from the goalie anyway.

    I always think it's harder to compare goalies.

    Take Allison and the defense and midfielders in front of him - job easy

    On the other hand take Dubz and with those in front of him means he has more to do therefore will most likely make more worldies etc
