Probably the most solid Buffon ever and surely the most mental. Maturity has come for Gigi in the years before and after Calciopoli, becoming one of the symbols of Juve and being one of the few who has to handle the team out of Serie B after the scandal; possibly the best player of WC 2006, even better than his team mate Cannavaro (who received the Ballon d'Or), nobody really looked to beat him and he was honoured by IFFHS as the best keeper on the world 4 times in a row (2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007).

Think that DF could go up by a point or two to 97-98 - had AMAZING positioning.

I agree Def 97, GK skills 97.

He may well eventually be remembered, as the greatest of all time.

Defence could go up one but his GK skills are fine. His handling wasn't as good as Dino Zoff or greater than Pat Jennings.

Jennings could probably be higher than Zoff, imo, I do think Zoff beats him in pretty much every other aspect bar kicking though.

I can agree to Defence going up to 97-98, but I think 96 is the limit for Goal Keeping skils of Buffon.

That first vid really put out how many penalties he saved.. hmm I do not really seem to remember that sort of ratio - I never actually considered Buffon to be a true penalty killer and have always thought he lacked that one dicsipline to complete him as one of the best ever. :? I would think that all his other highly rated abilities aided him in whatever penalties he saved (Agility,Jump, Speed,Acc, GKS) - and that with *Penalty stopper is a bit much in that aspect of his game?

Menatlity too I think could come down slightly to 84-85 levels, on with current Brad Friedel, although I think he was a bit more of that sort of psycological keeper when younger, prehaps still out to prove himself at every occasion - but as zuo pointed out in his current thread that a range of 78-80 for the current Buffon would not be wrong - due to his sometimes carefree nature after concession of a goal, while this was not him those years ago - has matured into the iceman I think. :P But with an 86+ Mentiality are keepers not prone to running out crazy style out of the box? Goonerlover66 I think tested this out, if so at that point I think Aggression at 60 would be sufficient to cover that.

While I think Conditioning can go up to 8, http://www.myjuve.it/giocatori-juventus ... n-359.aspx Match record, not included are the numerous appearnces for Italy which would ballon injury free seasons to 50+ matches.

Underrated?!

You are talking about Van Basten, as he is a random cricket player that gave a try to football, not to mention that you can't judge a player just by a match!

It's true you cannot make a judgement on a player based on one match.

however Buffon is rather underrated here compared to his peers. One can easily make the case for him being the best golkeeper of all time (Although lets not open that can of worms).

I suggest:
Def - 97
Rea - 96
GSkills - 98

Great!

In my opinion Buffon was the better goalkeeper since Zoff's retirement. Schmeichel was great but to me Buffon was better.

I think someone could make a set for Buffon 2006-2008 Era. During this time he did a great championships and a World Cup(2006) impeccable. He still played a very good Euro(2008).
During this period he received several individual awards:
. Yashin Award: 2006
. European Footballer of the Year (Silver Ball): 2006
. Serie A Goalkeeper of the Year: 2006, 2008
. Onze d'Onze (Ideal Team of The Year, GK): 2006
. UEFA Team of the Year: 2006
. FIFPro World XI: 2006, 2007
. IFFHS Best Goalkeeper: 2006, 2007
. 2006 FIFA World Cup All-Star Team
. UEFA Euro 2008 Team of the Tournament

Defence: 97 - Of recent goalkeepers, he has the best positioning easy. Better than Kahn, Schmeichel or Casillas.
Keeper Skills: 98 - I think in terms of fundamentals he is the best of all time. He knew the best technique to use in every moment. An amazing goalkeeper.

There seems to be an overwhelming consensus that his DEF could see a raise. I'd like to add my vote to that too. Does anyone else have any thoughts? I was just thinking how in awe of this guy's ability I was, and then browsing classic GK's stats, and there's several who are rated higher in the key aspects. Is it a case that classics are just slightly overrated?

Anyway, that's useless pondering of course, but DEF, do others think he could go up to 97/98?

And KS, a raise there would depend upon our understanding of what this stat does. I've always been told it's basically handling. Can anyone shed some light here?
