Thibaut Courtois’ profile in 2011 (after starting new game, patch 12.2)

Thibaut Courtois’ scouting report from Cagigao of Arsenal

Thibaut Courtois’ profile aged 27 in the year 2019

 

Thibaut Courtois’ career history until 2019

 

Courtois is certainly a talented Keeper. However his asking price of £55 million is far too much. Chelsea demand this due to just signing him but give it a few seasons and Courtois will be available for a fraction of the price. The profile above shows the Belgian aged 27 after years of first team Football but I still think he has a little more growth in there, that and the fact that his asking price doesn’t have to be as much as shown left me to give a rating of 7.5! Thanks to P. Rubio for the future screenshot.

Best buy rating: 7.5/10

Looks good…its a shame that hes been on the bench for years…his progress is still very good tho…

Quick mention to a goalkeeping gem i found…Marc-Andre ter Stegen of Gladbach…already spoken as the next Oliver Kahn and Manuel Neuer…

I think you should mention this bargain ‘keeper called Francesco Antonioli. He may be 42, but his price tag is very low. He’s good for couple of seasons, but he may decline very quickly if not given regular first-team football.

Wow, this command of area and areal ability look amazing! Shame about communication though but I guess lack of first team football does that to a goalkeeper. Rushing out being low? That’s not a big problem. Areola’s is just 11, but his acceleration, agility and decisions make up for that. The Belgian just needs an intensive aerobics training. He will make mistakes, just not too many. I think that in those 9-10 years I’ve had Areola between the posts (in all my games), he’s made maybe 5 mistakes in rushing out. And with that he caught nearly every cross thanks… Read more »

Just got this guy for 4.3m in January 2013 in my Middlesbrough save. Already had a promising young keeper in Jason Steele but the class, age, potential and spirited nature of this lad convinced me to rinse my budget on him. With composure and aerobic training, Im sure he will become the best!

Darren, you should do a profile for Zaha(6m) from palace, Ruben Pardo(2.3) from sociedad, Kerim frei(2.3) from Fulham and Welbeck(5.5) from United if you havent already, all young, cheap and very promising so far on my save.

Frei as a recommendation? The scouts may see something in him but he certainly isn’t Premier League material. He might be good value for Championship teams after 2-3 seasons and a lot of first team football, but he starts with ridiculously low CA, thus it would be a risk putting him out there on the pitch. When I managed Fulham, he was getting some gametime during the first 2 seasons as I didn’t have the money or rep to fully stack my midfield (6 quality players for 3 spots). He only played against the bottom 5 teams from EPL and… Read more »

Frei always ends up at City or Real Madrid when i start a save. Yet i have never seen how he develops. Theyve obviously taken notice of his performances for Fulham this season when hes been given first team action he looks like a real handful and a decent prospect.

Hello Darren thanks for this site it’s been truly helpful. I have a better future screenshot for Courtois and I wanted to know if you would want it. Also I wanted to know if you will be making a profile for bernd leno of leverkusen because I have the perfect screenshot to show his talent. Again thanks for all you have done.

He seems to be getting decent game time at Chelsea from your 2nd picture there Darren or is that from someone else? begs the question whats happening to Cech if Courtois is getting most of the game time.

Hi Darren,
What do you think of Thomas Kaminski?
He’s wanted by all the great teams (Chelsea, ManU,…) in my save after just 2 seasons. (I’ll post his screens one of the following days)
Thanks

My friend and I were arguing over which was better so I was wondering which you think is better Guilherme, Ter-Stegen, or Courtois. Cheers mate.

Hi, sorry to comment again but I just got a huge sum of money from my team, for winning the treble, and I was considering getting De Gea over Ter-Stegen. I just finished my second season, cheers.
