My current keeper has racked up 503 straight appearances at the current time. I have a backup, then a couple of other keepers that never impressed me enough in preseason or for the reserves for me to give them a chance. My current new keeper looks the goods though, and my current one probably hasn't got that many more years in him.
Our integrity sells for so little, but it's all that we really have. It is the very last inch of us
Re: Champs League: How Many Keeps do you Declare?
Always just the two, my main keeper and his stand in. If I had a crisis where for exemple one was injured and one got suspended, I'd use a youth keeper and play more atacking to try and keep the ball as far up the pitch as possible.
The topic asks the question...except I can't type. I meant "Keepers"... 2 or 3? or 1 or 4, if you're insane.... ;)
A good question, the answer should be "3" but I am assuming the rules for selection mirror those for the Euro Cup, ie youths dont need to be registered to be available? On that basis, and as I rarely have a useful 3rd choice keeper - I go for 2 equally good ones with little cover behind that - I think I would let my best youth become my Euro 3rd choice. After all, you are unlucky if you ever have to draw on keeper no. 3 and if you do, use it as a chance to blood a youngster. If my beloved St Etienne get slaughtered by a European giant in Europe due to a rookie keeper, in the future, then I will "stand corrected"!.
