His distribution is significantly better, I agree on that. It is so close that it would be stupid to say someone is far better either way.I personally wouldn't say Cech's any better at commanding the defence, he may be slightly better coming for crosses but I feel Buffon's positioning and significantly better distribution edge him out. As I said before, if I had to choose it would be Buffon but Cech is also a wonderful keeper.
The fact that he hasn't even got a cap to his name for Italy is a testament to the quality of keepers they have had over the years.Hmmm... I think he should have left some time ago, he's far too good to be playing second fiddle to even Petr Cech. A great waste.
