thibaut courtois fm 2014 career stats

This FM 2014 player profile of Thibaut Courtois shows one of the best young goalkeepers in the game, if not the absolute best. Most of you are already familiar with his current ability, so I won’t insist on that. I have to say though that Chelsea don’t want to let him go and I can’t really blame them. I made an offer for him at the start of the game and Chelsea decided to negotiate, they asked for 225 million! Eventually I was able to negotiate that transfer fee to 100 million but not a penny less.

However, PSG managed to get him for 26.5 million in my test save, so I guess there’s still some hope. His future profile looks almost flawless: he has the concentration of a Chinese table tennis player, the aerial ability of a basketball player and the goalkeeping skills of a true world class goalie. He is one of those players that you might want to get at any cost, as long as it’s less than 100 million though.

    is he better than david de gea and ter stegen

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 7, 2013

      I don’t see a major difference between the three of them, I’d say they are more or less equal.

    • comment avatar Miles 'Uni' Smith November 7, 2013

      If you want to play a sweeper keeper I’d go for Ter Stegen, otherwise, Courtois in my opinion.

  • comment avatar Gaurav Chaddah November 7, 2013

    Currently in my 4th season of Newcastle and agreed to sign him for 25 m in the summer… Top class keeper

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 7, 2013

      Well done, that’s a very good piece of business at 25 mil.

  • comment avatar Deepak November 8, 2013

    Will u do the profile for ter stegen and de gea?

  • comment avatar Kingn3rd November 8, 2013

    I just noticed that there is a technique stat above the outfield rating. What does this stat represent? Is it a key stat for sweeper keepers?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 8, 2013

      I have just noticed that too, not entirely sure what it represents but it should be technique on the ball, the same attribute the outfield players have. It’s not listed as essential for the sweeper keeper role but it surely wouldn’t hurt.

      • comment avatar Kingn3rd November 8, 2013

        Apparently the stat of technique refers how good they are in the art of goalkeeping.

        Taken from the FM13 online manual.

        Technique is the aesthetic quality of a player’s technical game; how refined they appear to be with the ball. A player with high technique will be more likely to pull off a tricky pass or a cross-field ball with greater ease than someone less technically able. This in turn affects a number of technical attributes; poorer technique will let a player down.

        • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 9, 2013

          The same definition is in the FM 2014 manual but there’s no mention of how that applies to goalkeepers.

          • comment avatar Brucey January 22, 2014

            As far as I can tell it just makes their passing a bit better…

  • comment avatar Rhys Headley November 23, 2013

    Take a look at Jeronimo Rulli – top class ‘keeper signed him for just 2.6 million in 2017 for Southampton and has dropped Lloris down the pecking order. How do I send in a profile of him?

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 23, 2013

      I have, he will get a profile at some point, good keeper.

  • comment avatar james January 10, 2014

    Just managed to get him for 7.5m on my southampton save.. BARGAIN

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp January 10, 2014

      Great, a real bargain indeed!

  • comment avatar Pellibird February 11, 2014

    Chelsea went insane and let his contract expire on my game, got him on a free, good times!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp February 11, 2014

      Bargain of the century!

  • comment avatar Some Guy February 18, 2014

    Just got him in 2016 as Reading for $7.5 million. Holy shit. Still can’t believe he was sitting in the Chelsea Reserves for a whole season. Almost didn’t get him because of the unrealistic transfers box!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp February 18, 2014

      Well done, you got quite lucky there to get him for such a low fee!

  • comment avatar Christopher February 28, 2014

    Worst keeper i ever had in fm, he can’t save anything and won’t even try to challange cross passes or corners. Have anyone really had him winning games or does he just have good attributes? And yes i have giving him time, two and a half season now, playing very defensive now cuz i know he won’t save anything… hopefully i can get some money back because of his good attributes

  • comment avatar ManUtdManager October 16, 2014

    in my save, chelsea released him for free after three years as a substitute for peter cech. i didn’t sign him though because i had david de gea (who was doing great) so he ended in french side Montpellier :P.

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 18, 2014

      Quite a bizarre turn of events, I’m sure Montpellier would be extremely happy to have such a player :)

  • comment avatar James Cuthbert November 25, 2014

    released on a free by Chelsea after 3 seasons, signed by me even though I had a very good goalie in Itemulung Khune, hoping he’ll stay for a loooong time!
