And the award for Goalkeeping blooper of the week goes to…
In the absence of any football matches of note tonight, apart from Celtic getting beat in the Europa League and Man United’s kids plus Michael Owen and Dimitar Berbatov beating Crystal Palace, we’ve turned to that old failsafe of finding goalkeeping bloopers on Youtube.

Joining the likes of Massimo Taibi, Fabien Barthez and Tim Flowers in the “fumbling a relatively easy pick-up” hall of shame is RSC Anderlecht keeper Silvio Proto – a Belgian international no less.
The gaffe came in Anderlecht’s clash with Zulte-Waregem on Monday night, allowing Teddy Chevalier to get his name on the scoresheet and put the underdogs 2-0 up against the Juplier League leaders.
Thankfully, Anderlecht still managed to salvage three points from the match, turning around their 2-0 deficit in the final six minutes, with a goal from Marcin Wasilewski on 84 and a brace from Tom De Sutter on 86 and 88 minutes saving Proto’s blushes.
