Are goalkeepers really that bad or is it just a excuse for bad defending?

    Exactly it's an excuse for bad defending. Your opponent wouldn't create many chances, if your defending is good.

    Watched a penalty shootout last night, and some of the goalkeeper animations were bizarre, to say the least. Simple saves not being made. :)

    How is that any different than Fifa 17? Peno's would roll under your GK's arms, even when you dived the right way.

    They're pretty bad imo finishing seems so much easier in 18 compared to 17 1on1's aren't as daunting where in 17 you know a De Gea or Butland could save everything

    Like I said before - the problem is not the keepers! (They are finally human this year)

    The BIG problem here is that shooting is waay too accurate (and so is passing)

    Goalkeepers are fine. So much hate on goal keelers. But goalkeepers could turn round and say well **** defending. Nd not protected properly

    Goalkeepers are mostly AI controlled, so if easy shots are not getting saved when you play online it's the fault of the coding. RB, LB, Two CB are mostly controlled by the player. There is a difference.

    This wicked deflection gave my keeper no chance, but wth was the dive effort for after the ball was already in the net?

    That's because most people would prefer an A.I. controlled GK saving their backside, rather than learning to defend. Responsive shooting is a good thing. Nothing more frustrating than losing a game after having 20+ shots on goal, your opponent scores from 1 shot because his GK A.I. wins him the game.

    The ending was messed up. A world class keeper would have reacted and got to the ball.

    Goalkeepers are inconsistent for me.

    One game I had Pickford, my opponent had Begovic and they just made save after save. Think it ended 2-1 eventually.

    Then the next game I had Pickford, matey had Perrin and they were both just letting in ridiculously easy shots. Game finished 6-4 :lol:

    They just need to make it more consistent.
