Goalkeepers: My Story So Far

We all know it's been a tough season to pick keepers thus far, so as I was bored this evening I had a quick look through my own record after the first 15 weeks.

As expected, it does not make pretty reading...

Week 1: Kirkland -10
Week 2: Jaaskalainen +23
Week 3: Cudicini -1
Week 4: Harper -2
Week 5: Foster -3
Week 6: Foster +18
Week 7: Foster -6
Week 8: Krul -3
Week 9: Kirkland 0
Week 10: Fabianski +14
Week 11: Fabianski -3
Week 12: Krul -5
Week 13: Green +13
Week 14: Carson -10.5
Week 15: Howard -12

4 +Positive Scores
10 -Negative Scores
1 Zero

Total Keeper Points = 12.5 (corrected, thanks rwl)

I'm actually surprised my overall keeper points was a positive score...but it's still an absolutely dreadful record and I'm shocked I've been able to stay in the Top 500 with such a rotten run. I'd be interested to see how others have done (if you can be bothered to scroll through 15 weeks and work it out!)

Week 16 Player Picks will be up tomorrow night.

Cheers,
AM

1 Kirkland -10
2 Foster +20.5
3 Cudicini -1
4 Harper -2
5 Green +3
6 Foster +18
7 Foster -6
8 Krul -3
9 Kirkland 0
10 Krul +9
11 Foster +9
12 Begovic +10
13 Carson -.5
14 Robbo +18
15 Green +15

I believe that comes to an even 80 points. Considerably higher than I expected. Although MOST of those points have come in the last 6 weeks. The first 9 were a bit of a cluster.

I did this three weeks ago for my team and I was averaging about 2 points from keepers to that point. In the last three weeks, I've had a nice little run with Al-Habsi (CS + win), Robinson (CS+win), and then Jussi (Draw, 2 conceded but enough saves to return 3.5). So it's been better lately for me.

I really find the keeper selection the most interesting aspect of the game. There are several different theories as to how to go about choosing your keeper.

Theory 1: Pick the keeper for a top team and let it ride. (problem with this strategy is that there is usually not as big of an upside due to high prices and often times, not many chances for saves)

Theory 2: Pick the keeper with the best matchup of those who cost less than 6 or so. This is the high risk high reward group. I've traditionally been in this category because I like to spend most of my money on outfield players.

Theory 3: Then there are people who try to lock in a solid keeper at a good low price and hold on as long as possible. Ben Foster springs to mind.

The biggest problem with selecting a keeper is you're not really choosing the keeper for his abilities per say. You're choosing the keeper becuase you like the team's matchup. Personally I couldn't care less how good the keeper actually is (otherwise I'd pick Pepe Reina practically every week). It's all about the team and in this season, when team's results have been inconsistent so too have the points production of the keepers.

chelsea fan said...

i had net +59.5 or an average of 4.0 per game; which does not sound that bad until you compare to the average cost of approx 9.0 per game. this is not an acceptable rate of return.

i got burned badly by kirkland in week one (-10) and howard in week 15 (-12); the best were cech in week 9 (28) and week 12 (16).

if i had to do it all over again, i would have kept a benched kirkland @ 1 and let it ride for the season. too late for that now though.

alternatively, foster held at 6 all season for 140.5 pts or hart held all season at 9 for 132 pts (each an average of approx 9 pts per game) would have been reasonably clever. so maybe this is the way to play the keeper position. pick a decently priced good one -- assuming you get the right one -- and stick with him.

Can anyone spot the point where I stopped picking similar keepers to AM?

Also, AM, you forgot to subract the last score of -12 from your total...your on 12.5 overall from keepers!

capiTeno said...

+57 for me

the reason why is we scrimp on keepers to spend on strikers.
AM, I notice that apart from 2 weeks of Fabianski there's no "top 4" keepers, and I wouldn't call any of them international standard

I'd go Drogba+Hahnemann before Chec+Doyle any day

AdmiraLord Nelson said...

78.5 points from my goalkeepers! Thanksmostly to Foster, Al-Habsi, and VdS.

Ken said...

120.5 Points for goal so far.

Pick & choose week to week for the most part. Whoever will fit for the price I have to work with. Had Kirkland for 2 of those weeks for a zero.

Guess I have been somewhat lucky...

As of now, mine for this week is Fabianski. (so far)

hfs said...

Week 1: Hahnemann 7
Week 2-5: Hart 20, -1, 2, 10
Week 6: Reina -2.5
Week 7,8: Hart 5, 2.5
Week 9: Kirkland 0
Week 10-15: Hart -4, 16, 13, 15, 3, 4.5

Total: 90.5

My first season in YFF and I didn't know the blog then so started off with Hahnemann and got pretty luck considering the season the guy's having.
Decided to go with Hart afterwards, but couldn't start him vs. Chelsea in week 6, which was a mistake because I had him at 8.xx. Bought him back later on, but decided to go big with Drogba in week 9 which turned out to be a total bust.

Considering how every decision I've made that resulted in selling Hart turned out to be a mistake I'm definitely sticking with him. Imo at 9.1 he's good value and has a chance of a CS in every given week.

Imo the variance with goalies week in week out are the biggest in YFF, so you can either make up a lot of ground or screw up your whole team.

87 for me. Rode Hart for a while and got lucky with Reina and Hart within the past few weeks.

All the best...Vancouver Whitecaps! (future home of Robbie Keane??...doubtful, but fun to think about)

Neal Thurman said...

So, I'm at 95 points from my keepers over the course of the first 15 weeks. That makes my selections (mostly a combination of Foster, Hart, and Fabianski with some random weeks of Cech and Howard thrown in) the equivalent in production of having had EvdS for the entire season at a lower cost. That said, for those who are reporting low numbers, it might make sense to pick someone like Robbo who is price low and stick with him through the big minus numbers. If you'd had him all year (including the blowout last weekend), you'd at least have 58 points to the good for your entire season.

Just something to think about.

Weeks 1-9 total points = 7
Weeks 10-15 total points = 39

What's the difference? I bought Fabianski @ 6.32 in Week 10 and kept him for an average of 6.5 pts per week for 6 weeks.

Guess what I intend to do from now on?

GK is a wacky position. The best option (for me at least) would be to pick up a good keeper cheap after a thrashing and keep him for the rest of the season (as Neal suggested). I intended to do just that this season but stupidly wound up playing keeper roulette anyway. Looking at the keepers averaging around where you are can be instructive.

Kirkland -10.0
Foster 20.5
Cudicini -1.0
Hart 2.0
Robinson 4.0
Foster 18.0
Foster -6.0
Krul -3.0

I had a terrible first three weeks, but have been pretty strong since that time. I've had Joe Hart for the last 8 weeks. He is averaging 7 points per week over that time, which is just fine for me at his price.

Kirkland -10.0
Howard 0.0
Hart -1.0
Hart 2.0
Cech 14.0
Foster 18.0
Green 6.0
Hart 2.5
Hart 5.0
Hart -4.0
Hart 16.0
Hart 13.0
Hart 15.0
Hart 3.0
Hart 4.5

First 3 weeks combined for -11.0 with two negative weeks and zero week.

Since that time (last 12 weeks), I've posted a +95.0 with only one negative week.

for a grand total of 142goalkeeping points. i would say that is a very good score.

i made the decision to go to foster in week 2 after he had -.5 points. his price was nice. my intention was to alternate robinson and foster for the home games and matchups, but robinson got too expensive. this year i am trying to pick week to week point earners and it has improved my rankings from top 2000 or top 1000, usually, to top 250 at one point. now i am 441th.

very lucky to get total +19 points. it was mid week round, week 12. i bd'ed krul(-5) but i forgot to hit the save button, i got fabianski(18points) from my last week team instead, so i kept him for week 13(11points) as i got him very cheap.

my rules on picking a goalie are:
1. home match
2. against weak opponent.
3. cheap
4. big team.
tell me if im wrong, it just doesn't work for me this season.

It would be wise to focus on the possibility of game being postponed due to the cold snap.

Not a bad result after all, in my opinion (considering I've been spending so little in this department so far) :-)

Nothing to do with Goalies,

Zhirkov it seems may be avail this week according to

http://eva-news.com/chelsea/chelsea-injury-update-ahead-of-the-newcastle-match/215267

to put it in perspective.... my score sucks as 10 starting keepers have scored more than that for the season. I guess picking a keeper and sticking with him instead of changing from time to time may be the way to go?????

73 for the season so far.

Keepers are a real lottery. Last season I went on a run when I had 4consecutive clean sheets for my keepers. This season it is much harder to choose the right one each week. I've been chopping and changing weekly woth mixed results. This week i got robbo in and I may just stick with him for the next few games, if not maybe the whole season.

hart: 2 vs Blackburn 2 saves/1GC
reina: 16 vs WBA 3 saves/CS
howard: 0 vs Wolves 1 save/1GC
kirk: -10 vs B'Pool 2 saves/4GC

it seems that i always picked home game GK...

40 points combined...

5 negative, 2 zeros and 8 positive but my GK got only 26 saves in 14 games with 20 goals conceded...

it looks like my main problem is that i am picking gk to get win and CS and not saves... so season with so many unexpected results gave me this... but the main problem is that my gks give me very bad performances... from this 20 goals at least 7-8 are big gk mistakes kirk vs blacpool, hart vs blackburn, almunia vs WBA,reina vs blackburn,fab21 vs newcastle...

next week - new pick... hoping for good one ;-)

Anonymous said...

I managed a grand total of 71.5 points although I feel a bit better as I did have 5 zero point weeks but that was mainly by using Kirkland to increase spend elsewhere.

I think I can see a golden trie this weekend, Drogba, Vidic and Nasri......

Anonymous said...

Not even going to dare to look at my GK scores, as I've only had 2 positive results all season.
Thats probably why Im not even anywhere near the top 10000, let alone the top 1000!
If you want to know who NOT to pick, just give me a call & I'll tell you who I've chosen...
It's time to hang up my gloves and buy Capt Kirk back maybe, although Im still having nightmares about Kirk's first match of the season.
*Sigh*

Picked Berbatov up on the door (11.64)

Just don't feel like I made that great of a move.

Keep?

My gut says no.....

Any suggestions?

Birty said...

don't think i'm too far off the top with 143.5. Mainly due to having Foster at 6. Can't see any reason to let him go, unless birmingham go down the toilet

Anonymous said...

I have 79.5 but had Foster at 6 and let him go before the City and Chelsea games :(

TKP = 79.5 pts

Anonymous said...

49.5 pts. some small negatives at start. one great score from foster in wk 6. few more small negatives. then got fabianski in wk 8 up to wk 13 to get several good scores. then been kirkland ever since. bit bad that he moved up from 1.00 as can't skip in & out of him. my worst score was only -4.50 by Green in wk 2. cudicini throwing away the banker home game vs wigan in wk 3 was probably most annoying even though it was only -1. feel bad for AM ; last sat must have been gutting esp with a rob green pen save. getting almost funny now as he's cursed ! let us all know in well in advance who you fancy Nik, then we can all give him a swerve ! ;).
for this week, Carson looks nice going on win pt's alone- but his goals conceded/saves ratio of 26/41= 0.63 is just awful. worse than p robbo ( admittedly in better form this season, last sat excepted ), WORSE than rob green, an off- form tim howard, & almunia. Krul is also pretty bad with a ratio of 0.61 & he gave AM 2 negatives.
3 of the 4 keepers who gave AM positives, have signif better ratio's foster= 18/67= 0.27. jussi = 16/44= 0.36 & fabianski =10/28= 0.36.

S.P.

kwyjibo said...

Is it just me, or does it seem that, in general, people who stuck with one keeper did better than people who jumped around more? Even in my case with Jussi, who didn't score much, if I never changed (apart from when he was out), I would have scored 22 more points overall.

Interesting...

OFF TOPIC:

Points adjustment time again...gained 0.5 points and went up 2 places! Woo hoo!!!

hi AM,
mine is only 8.83 average, 132.5 total. Only recent on double digits scoring begining from VDS/Hart/Cech/Fabi/Begovic/Green. See... ur luck is better than mine.

73.5 for me, more than half earned in last six weeks when i picked up fabianski at 6+ and have held him. was a dog's breakfast of kirkland/hart/foster/green before then. biggest regret: had foster's 20.5 in week 2, then dropped him.

Anonymous said...

I am a +6.5 :( - keep in mind that I had captKirk at 1 unit for all but 3 weeks

Kirkland -10
Carson +14 2nd week
Cud -1 3rd
Kirk +-0 for 11 weeks straight costing 1 unit
Jaak +3.5

Who's to say that the spare units were worth the bunches of zeros seeing that I am still just inside the top 2000 total and being as hight as 7000th place.

Now that I've lost the 1 unit Kirk pick I will be back to the strategy of cheaper keeper with best matchup. Risky business for sure, but so goes it with all yff selections. Thank you Berbs!

Does colder weather favor the defenses or offenses generally speaking? I don't know. And will Drogs ever get his scoring touch back?

It's been the strangest of my 5 seasons thus far.

Good luck to us all.

That means that I'm overpaying for goalie a bit right now but I can't complain. I'm keeping Joe Hart for the season considering City is turning into a pretty stingy team defensively.

im on 134.5
had foster in all season except week 1 and 8 in which i had hilario and krul respectively did some quick sums and i got 134.5 should be one of the highest with foster being the second highest scoring keeper in the game.

I have 88 keeper points. Scored better with cheap options than with more expensive ones. I'll probably stick to my strategy of picking the best matchup out of the inexpensive keepers. Every time I splurge I get burned.
