Don't know if this is worthy of a new thread, but still, is this some sort of bug or just some odd unrealistic fluke?

Bayern Munich just signed Akinfeev, Cavalieri, Ochoa and Ben Foster in the same transfer window. Four 'big name' goalkeepers! Cavalieri cost them 11 million and he's 'backup'. Foster went for 4.1 million to be a backup and Man Utd haven't even bothered to sign a replacement despite the fact that Van Der Sar is 39 and his stats are decreasing rapidly.

I have Akinfeev, Ochoa, Areole, A young Dutch keeper I signed on the cheap and an excellent 17yo Regen coming through. Maybe I should sell one?

I have 7 GKs. 3 of which are good enough for 1st team football.
Sergio Asenjo who is on the decline at the age of 34.
Vaderlei (22 year old Regen) who will take Asenjos place
Marcao (21 year old Regen) who is backup/hot prospect
Mikel Blanco (18 year old Regen) hot prospect
Giovanni Scarpa (19 year old Regen) hot prospect
Helmut Slomka (19 year old Regen) hot prospect
Augustin Hiriat (17 year old Regen) hot prospect

Buy 27 keepers if you wish, the game can't control that. One AI team buying 4 big name keepers in the same transfer window is definitely off though. Report it in the bugs forum

That is very true, Having 4 GKs isnt all that odd, but 4 GKs of that ability is a bit odd.

I don't think that he is trying to point out the number of keepers, but the number of first team keepers, most of the people who point out the number that they have are also mentioning their hot prospect teenagers. But OP's keepers aren't all 16, they are in their prime and would all easily earn a start at most top division clubs.

There was an issue with this in the original game that was addressed in the first patch, I think.
