The Elite XI: Glorious Goalkeepers


We’ve discussed our love of hot keepers in the past, and now it’s time to re-open the debate for our compilation of the Elite Eleven.

It is, of course, obvious where our loyalties lean for the top spot, but unlike our happily biased, personal picks for the Finest Five, the Elite Eleven takes the general consensus amongst our readers into consideration as well. So, there is a possibility (however slight, we admit), that another keeper could get a look in.

Plus, the sub bench has spaces open, and looks likely to host the hottest bunch of toasty-bottomed benchwarmers in the history of those who look hot whilst seated on their perfect posteriors.

Who do you think should take the top place as the protector of our scrummy squad?  We open the debate with a few for your perusal (above), but there are so very many to choose from.

    Joe Hart. Cudicini And Iker For The Bench, You Can Never Be Too Careful You See ;)

  2. Kat says:

    I would let Iker Casillas and Petr Cech duke it out, with Carlo Cudicini, Joe Hart, and Gigi Buffon on bench.

  3. Pavi (Mrs Metzelder) says:

    Michael Rensing, Pepe Reina, Carlo Cudicini, Victor Valdes, Joe Hart, Volkan Demirel and Artur Boruc!

  5. FirstTeamCoach says:

    Well I know that Iker will run away with this one – soo much Iker love around. He gets my vote, because of the scruffiness not the pretty boyness. I have a weird facination for Tim Howard and of course Fourth you remined me of the hot manliness that is Volkan (great name too) so, Iker and on the bench Howard and Volkan

  6. suzie says:

    oooooohhhh it totally has to be iker for me.Then victor valdes (is it me or does he look like colin farrells hotter younger brother), buffon and cudicini

  7. Callie says:

    Iker with Cudicini a distant second.

  8. cristina_juve says:

  10. Anna (Frau Manuel Ne says:

    surprisingly, MANUEL NEUER! hehe. also, petr cech, timo hildebrand, carlo cudicini, artur boruc..

  11. Gina says:

    So I’m going to be the contrarian I guess. My number one is Julio Cesar, with subs Volkan Demirel and Luke Steele.

  12. one_love=cesc_fabregas says:

    ummmm HELLO!!! WHERE’S GIGI BUFFON???!!!!

  13. TammyV says:


    Bench:Petr Cech, Carlo Cudicini, Shay Given

  14. Emily (Giggsy's Gal) says:

    I approve of Iker, despite the team he plays for, because he’s really really hot. My other choices would be two boys from City (wow, what’s wrong with me today?) and one from Sunderland. Joe Hart, Kasper Schmeichel and Craig Gordon.

  15. SpaceCowgirl says:

    May I be the first to thrust my hand in the air and shout 'IKER!, IKER!, IKER!'

  16. agent fierce says:

    definitely iker, then duckie and kasper

  17. footyluver21 says:

    Iker of course there’s no competition…..

  18. xXFernandoXx says:

    Iker – best goalie in the world and the best looking!

  19. cheska_so_fierce says:

    iker, of course! bench: cudicini and rensing. =D

  20. aristeia says:

    Mmkay. There’s NO WAY Iker doesn’t win. If this site could, it’d tattoo his name on its rear. ;) So I will go with my number one– Gigi. God, I love him.

    On the bench: Pepe and Artur. Sooooooo hooooooot.

  21. carly says:

    Hottest benchwarmer in the world can only be: Carlo! Carlo! Carlo!

  22. Pavi (Mrs Metzelder) says:

    Michael Rensing, Pepe Reina, Carlo Cudicini, Victor Valdes, Joe Hart, Volkan Demirel and Artur Boruc!

  23. TammyV says:


    Bench:Petr Cech, Carlo Cudicini, Shay Given

  24. carly says:

    Hottest benchwarmer in the world can only be: Carlo! Carlo! Carlo!

  25. FootballerChick43 - says:

    Still gotta be Iker for the top spot. On the sub bench, though, Manuel Neuer.

  26. Sarah says:

    I’m gonna be completely and totally unpredictable and say Iker.

    On the bench, a pair of Polish keepers: Artur Boruc and Lukasz Fabianski.

  27. Erin says:

    OK, it’s totally expected from me, but I really and truly adore Pepe Reina.

    I do also find Gigi Buffon’s eyes mesmerizing. And Joe Hart is adorable in a little brother kind of way.

  28. lose that girl says:

    Is there any point? Won't Iker just slip away with the crown anyway? I agree. He's hot. But…I'd like to offer up Joe Hart. That's me done.lose that girl blog

  34. ^^K^^ says:

    Definitely Iker <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  35. Kay says:

    Cudicini!! always b my number 1!

  36. olalla says:

    Well, Iker is an obvious choice…But glad to see Boruc finally appreciated!!

  37. erin says:

    iker, rensing hotting up the bench

  38. Elizabeth says:

    I don’t even understand the point of asking about this category. Iker Casillas is by far and away the best looking goalkeeper on the planet. Hands down.

  39. allison says:

    I’ve got to add Stoke’s Thomas Sorensen to the list.

  40. mikaela says:

    I got to say one thing before I offer my opinion on this:
    When will fernando torres make the finest five ? Please, awful kickette bosses, tell me what will it take? Cause i’m willing to make personal sacrifices for this to happen.

    Anyway, more to the point – glorious keeper, thy name is Iker.

  41. Jennifer says:

    Pepe Reina is number one in my book! Bald and beautiful!

  42. FERNTANDO says:

    OH MY GOSH……… IKER! IS! SOOOOOO! HOTTTTT! I LOVE HIM MORE THAN FERNANDO. I think i have to change my name from ferntando to to sumthing else

  43. freddiegirl says:

    Gotta go with some of the other responses…..there was no sense asking; Iker of course!

  44. Mili says:

    Artur Boruc is definitely the best !!!

  45. Rusty (aka FCF...) says:

    I’ve really started to like Michael Rensing lately; I think I’m over Iker!

    keyword: moral75. I don’t have any morals relating to hot ‘keepers!

  46. blessedxox says:


  47. Maria says:

    Do I even have to say it, really?

  48. JenFica says:

    Oooohhhh….hot keepers are a weakness of mine!
    Definitely Iker is #1.  But I love a couple of Argentines: Fabian Assmann of Independiente and Juan Pablo Carrizo of Lazio.  And Volkan Demirel has a great body, but his face….no.

  49. Mary Ann says:

    Iker… Cudicini

  50. Lisa says:

    Jonas Sandqvist in Malm

  51. Lisa says:

    Jonas Sandqvist in Malm

  52. allison says:

    I’ve got to add Stoke’s Thomas Sorensen to the list.…

  53. VillaHatTrick says:

    I can't lie – it has to be Iker for the top spot. My God, even with the scruffiness, he's just in another realm of smoldering hotness. What about Green for a second?

  54. QUE VIVA ESPANA says:

    Iker then Pepe Reina…

  55. mrscudicini says:

    Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Cudicini, Iker

  56. Dani.Mrs José says:

    Iker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my bench: Victor Valdez,Joe Hart and Pepe Reina

  57. Moonie says:

    Damn this is so hard, I love keepers! Ok i'll be loyal and go for Joe Hart with Robbo, VV and Boaz on the bench.

  58. mandanicole says:


  59. Blondie says:

    Iker =)

  60. truly_thata says:

    NO DOUBT FOR IKER!…… Duckie, Buffon and Cech

  61. Dreamgirl says:

    Could I throw Jaaskelainen into the mix? Cech and Reina for substitutes.

  62. VictoryFord says:

    Iker. there isnt and never will be another

  63. SemiCharmed says:

    Duckie! subs: Victor Valdes and Timo Hildebrand

  64. GO says:

    Iker for me as well:D and subs pepe reina and rensing

  65. Mrs. John Terry says:

    IKER! And Michael Rensing.

  66. Dee13 (mrs m metze) says:

    michael rensing… bench: carlo cudicini, timo hildebrand, victor valdes, boaz myhill

  67. Beth says:

    well this is a tough choice…actually no, its suprisingly easy – has to be Iker running about a mile ahead of an other competition. Then prob Joe Hart and the Kasper Schmeichel.

  68. P says:

    <font size="3"> IKER CASILLAS, PLEASE! </font> Benched: Carlo Cudicini and Luke Steele

  69. Jamila says:

    Iker ;]

  70. Zatil says:

    I'm gonna go with Iker….and VV & VDS on the bench.

  71. RedGirl (Mrs. Casill says:

    *puts her cheerleader uniform and starts to jump* I want Íker for this spot Even my granny thinks he's HOT! GOOOOOOOOOOOOO ÍKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRR!!!! *shakes the pompons and goes to bed coz the lack of sleep is really taking its toll*

  72. Victoria says:

    Víctor Valdés, Víctor Valdés, Víctor Valdés. I think I made my point. =)

  73. AJ says:

    I have a thing for Boruc. Iker is probably going to win and I'm fine with that. Hot man. Joe Hart is a cutie and David James has a body sculpted by Greek Artisans. Fourth's Volkan is dirty hot times a thousand. He scares me and makes me go giggly, all at the same time. ;) 1)Boruc 2)Iker 3)Hart with James in the imaginary HOF for Goalies. :)

  74. Blair says:

    Cudicini Subs: Rensig and Reina

  75. justlikexabi says:

    has to be Iker..Timo and Pepe on the bank.

  76. Der Lutscher says:

    Michi Rensing is pretty cute) And Timo Hildebrand is hot as hell, but alas, he seems glued to the bench…( upd. Rene Adler is pretty too, looking sort of French and lush)

  77. Narsenal says:

    Most definitely IKER first…. following that I must say Duckie (aka Manuel Neuer) and Kasper Schmeichel.

  78. joey cole's girl =P says:

    Iker! subs: Cudicini and Joe Hart

  79. eRe says:… Iker? Artur?? Carlo?!… I’m Polish, I love Spain and my heart is Blue… three of them, please. *faints*

  80. striker says:

    Iker!!!!!!! Bench: Petr Cech, Victor Valdes (but only when he has hair)

  81. Blondie says:

    Iker =)

  82. SpaceCowgirl says:

    Sorry, got carried away! Forgot my subs: Valdes and Cudicini

  83. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    IIIIIIIIIIIKKKKKKKKKKKEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRR!!!!! With Cudicini on the bench…. but Iker’s top choice by sooooo far

  84. autumnmaple101 says:

    IKER. Hands down.

  85. The Fourth Official says:

    Volkan Demirel. Hot.

  86. The Fourth Official says:

    Joe Hart is fine. Craig Gordon is cute. Not really feeling much keeper love these days. Oh, that Turkish keeper, what’s his name, he’s hot. Remember he took his shirt off at the Euros and millions of women had simultaneous climaxes? What’s his name? Volkan?

  87. DC says:

    IKER! sub: Carlo Cudicini

  88. Emily (Giggsy's Gal) says:

    Ooh, can I add another vote for my sub list? I vote for Turkish dude, Volkan, who Fourth reminded us about. He needs to play in the EPL ’cause I forgot about him. Come to England so that we can drool over you weekly, please, Mr. Volkan!!! :)

  89. louisquatorze says:

    Jens Lehmann will always be the #1 of my heart, but just as in the German national team, once he retires I’m more than confident in Rene Adler’s ability to take his place. (And Manuel Neuer for backup.) (And Victor Valdes, once he grows his hair back.)

  90. Boston Red says:

    SHAY GIVEN. HE INVENTED SEX. Sorry for the caps. I get excited while talking about him.

  91. LoveLamps says:

    God this is hard. Here’s my list: 1 – Carlo Cudicini 2 – Petr Cech 3 – Memo Ochoa (if you don’t know GOOGLE!) 4 – Joe Hart 5 – Shay Given 6 – The guy TFO posted below OM*G! I’m goalkeeper heavy. So shoot me.
