SIF Kevin Crapp

I just cannot fathom this game sometimes. I've been using a team that required me to use a PSG keeper recently. I gave SIF Trapp a go and he saved nothing. Might as well have had a scarecrow in goal, as he only saved the shots which were directly at him. Just stands there the rest of the time twiddling his thumbs while the other team **** shots into the net. I sold him and got MOTM Sirigu for a bit, he was decent but his price soared up a bit so I thought I'd take the profit and give SIF Crapp a second chance to prove himself - it could have just been bad luck, and after all he has better stats than Sirigu does. Nope, once again he saves nothing. Had games where he made just 2 saves and conceded 4 or 5 goals. Even the saves he did make, he often spilled them across his own goal line for a tap-in.

How can it be that a second in form goalkeeper is the worst gold keeper in the game? He played no better than a silver. If player stats are meaningless then what is the point of any of this?? I've now had to change my team and lose Thiago Silva, who was amazing, because of this nonsense.

I will now refer to him only as Kevin Crapp for all of eternity. Even in real life. I really can hold a grudge. Never forgave that **** Leon Osman for crippling one of my players on Football Manager 2007. Crapp is going on the **** list with him.

    jup, he was truly awful for me as well.
    currently having MOTM Sirigu as well. Makes some really good saves, does awful stuff sometimes as well though.

    What's your team?
    Could always use a better GK on 7chem...

    I've been changing it slightly every few days to be honest. When I started out it was this:
    http://www.futhead.com/16/squads/14223307/
    As you can see I already had three players on low chem, so I didn't want the keeper and Thiago to be low chem as well. After a while that team became this:
    http://www.futhead.com/16/squads/14416534/
    Again, the same thing where I already had a few low chems and didn't want any more.

    Now the team is this anyway: http://www.futhead.com/16/squads/14486788/
    Only used SIF Fährmann once but he already made like two excellent saves that Crapp wouldn't have got anywhere near.

    You dont like Neuer?

    You dont like Neuer?

    Don't have the coins for him at the moment, and even if I did, I don't think any goalkeeper is worth 50k on this game. It's a waste of coins when no keeper is immune to howlers anyway. 25k is about my limit really.

    There's not much between him and SIF Fährmann if you actually compare them either. Fährmann has better diving and reflexes and is taller. And half the price.

    nice teams!
    the solution with Veltman looks very good.

    GK can be important. For the Bundesliga-Tourny I bought TOTY Neuer as an investment.
    He's like a cheat, ridiculous how many sure goals he stops!

    heard very good things about Fährmann, Leno and Neuer. So you have more than enough solutions anyways.

    I looked long and hard for a Thiago replacement, as I like my CBs to be good on the ball. Then I realised Veltman was staring me in the face this whole time, when I already had Klaassen who triple links him! Ha.

    Yeah, now I'm not limited to PSG keepers it's happy days. Sad to lose Silva but I have high hopes for Veltman.

    As said above, I've already changed it and moved onto SIF Fährmann now.

    But the point of the topic was more to ask how a goalkeeper with those stats can be so bad? I mean something is wrong there surely? Stats are supposed to be what determine how good a player is. What was making him play that badly?

    That's always been there in fifa man. Last year, everyone hated Mandanda but he was godly for me. I think it has to do with the type of chances you give to your opponent? Everyone has different styles of defending and maybe, the keeper's performance is influenced by the angles you leave loose for your opponent? That maybe the answer but who knows

    I see where you're coming from but he basically just let in everything, lol. In the box, outside the box, narrow angles, it didn't really matter. He saved a penalty once but that's more me than him. :wink:

    NIF Sirigu absolutely adequate, they all let ones in anyway, I played @stevvix last night and his TOTS De Gea was a total muppet.
    Don't waste coins on IF GK's

    Yeah, I agree with this 100%, but for my main team I allow myself up to 25k on the keeper. Not bad price for SIF Fährmann. If I desperately need those coins to spend elsewhere I can downgrade him to NIF Leno.

    As a PSG fan I can tell you he is exactly like that in real life.
    Blanc is getting fired and its a good thing because he stuck with Trapp even though we have Sirigu and Areola in the team.
    Here is some of the highlights of his season:

    Haha! I've honestly never seen him play. Good to know 'Kevin Crapp' is an appropriate nickname though, hopefully it will catch on!

    I didn't actually know Areola was on loan from you guys.

    Ah ok. I was gonna say, maybe if he had another goalkeeper to help him he might not have been so **** useless. He actually makes attempts to save the ball for you then? I'm stunned.

    The thing is, it's only been in the last day or 2 that De Gea has turned on me. Up til then he's been godly.

    SIF Trapp is sometimes insane and sometimes awful for me.
    NIF Sirigu is far more consistent though.

    I'd say Neuer is 100% worth 50k. Had him for a good while and he catches so many shots others would parry. He's literally won me games. A lot of games! Rocking with Hart and Lloris now and I miss big Manuel incredibly!
