Who are some 'random' goalkeepers that you always remember for some reason or no reason at all?

Gary Sprake letting the ball go underneath him in the FA Cup Final, and then becoming a teacher and working at the same place as my sister.

Jorge Campos - Mexican goalkeeper who always seemed to be wearing really colorful jerseys. I liked that as a kid.

Craig Forrest. Because of the 1995 Premier League sticker album.

David Harvey. For some reason I remember him conceding a goal from a Mick Mills free kick just inside the Leeds half. I swear that the free kick was given just inside the Ipswich half but Mills moved it forward. I can never find anything about it though so there's a good chance I'm misremembering.

Seaman because of his name and long hair. I was young at the time

Ed de goey - that late 90s chelsea side was probably my favourite team outside of our own...i can still remember their starting line up. They were such a cool team. de Hoey just stood out obv because of how he looked. you'd never imagine him being picked for anything growing up, but he was reliable and respected in that team.

Rustu Recber - turkish keeper. He came out in the middle of the pitch kung fu kicked keiron dyer in the face. he was a strange character.

Manuel Almunia. I’m really not sure why, maybe it’s the hair, maybe it’s games against Barca...

Piracy on the High Seas.
Fabián Carini, who seemed to be a very intriguing prospect back in the day. Rather unfortunate in the sense that Juventus had zeroed in on Buffon as the replacement for van der Sar, so 21 year old Carini didn't get a fair shake and went on to have a journeyman career (including a spell at Internazionale following a straight-up swap deal that included future Ballon D'or winner Cannavaro). Anyway, here's him squaring off against prime Ronaldo in the 1999 Copa América final, at the age of just 18...

Also, Oscar Ustari (U-20 World Cup winner with a Messi-led Albiceleste), René Adler (contender for the German #1 position after Lehmann's retirement) and Marcos (bit of a forgotten man these days but won the Copa Libertadores + World Cup + Copa América in the late '90s to early 2000s).

Gary Walsh pretty certain he started in the Nou Camp when we got a 4-0 mauling.

Was a disaster at Liverpool but then turned into a brick wall at Blackburn and Spurs.
