I'm amused about how serious some take this. They asked just 5 people, and they could chose from all active keepers, instead of giving them a list and sort them. From what my pitiful french tells me, some took into account career merit (as with those who ranked Gigi), others didn't. All those in that list are exceptionally good, and the ranking is more down to personal liking and ranking preferences than anything else. Also, i once read an interview with Olli Kahn taken after he resigned from the sport. He complained that very few spectators, including well-reputed pundits and former (field) players in his opinion could judge keepers properly. So if former keepers vote up a keeper i wouldn't have thought of initially, i give it some consideration. Even Kahn, who is mostly known for his spectacular stops, voiced the opinion that those pulling formidable stunts were not necessarily the best keepers, but those who played in a way to avoid some situations in the first place. In that sector, i don't believe Neuer has an equal. Which is why youtube-clips of his best saves for BM are somewhat underwhelming, as opposed to those showing him playing for the Nationalmannschaft or Schalke. Yet no one denies he's one of the greatest. I think this may well be because he not only plays with class teammates on a regular basis, but his own style allows them to clear iffy situations before they get really nasty.
