You may call me biased but I think we have the best goalkeeper in the world with Pepe Reina. Some may say that it is Buffon or Casillas but for my Pepe takes the cup. What is interesting to note is that even with all of Pepe’s brilliant performances in the Red shirt over the last couple of seasons, he is still Spain’s second choice goalkeeper behind Casillas. Now I am not taking anything away from Casillas, especially after his heroics against us on Tuesday night but surely the Spanish selectors should give Pepe a chance to be Spain’s number one. It is more difficult for Pepe now that Casillas is Spain’s captain. But I also believe that Pepe is a better leader than Casillas. Reina is always talking to the players on the field and is full of energy whereas Casillas is rather reserved and does not say much.

Arsenal v Liverpool, FA Premier League

If Pepe were to stay at Anfield for the rest of his career he would be the Liverpool captain one day without a doubt. Another reason I think Pepe may not be getting the vote for the Spanish national team is because he is playing for Liverpool. If Pepe was the goalkeeper for Barcelona, I believe he may stand a better chance of displacing Casillas.

In my eyes, we have the best goalkeeper in the world!
