I just finished my 4th season as 2nd in EPL, Wigan.

He's the only available Good GK, listed at 15m. I already have Valdes which is the golden glove this year(my 2nd place finished is surprising). He's still great, but he's detoriating fast, and he's pace/acceleration are too low for a sweeper keeper now, i play a highline.

Krul is availble probably around 25m, Muslera was injured too many times, ter stegen is in barca and any other GK dont want to join me because of my club stature.

Is this a good deal? should i buy him?

Too much for a GK, try Szczesny?

Szczesy has no interest to join me, also, they want 57m for him... Nevermind, i bought a GK, 15m, 28yrs old, great for a sweeper keeper

Idol Raikan!..LOL

Anyway, I was hoping that the greatness of courtious will make it through even though he wasnt cut for a sweeper.

so i bought Rui Patricio for 15.5m on a 99k wage. Only "1" creativity, but it wasnt my target, as i want him just to pass it to my wing backs only. He's only average at speed and rushing out, but he's mentality is good, and he has great influence (which my team lacks), caldwell is still my Captain( not cool, as he is only a substitute option for me), and Patricio is now my VC. Im planning to make him my in his 3rd year.

Before i bough patricio, i bought Costil for a small fee of 700k, because i never knew about patricio. But after i sign patricio, i loan costil to tottenham, and i get income from him.

Their Stats.

Cros is my back up GK, average one, but still OK. Also cheap in wage. though i'll probably sell him as he is expiring and wants 25k a week, is that too much for a GK? he's a good back up really.

What do you think? Costil or Patricio?.. Patricio is performing well, Costil still hasnt played in tottenham. Im finding it hard to find a wonderkid sweeper keeper.

can u also answer my other thread?
