Do goalkeepers ever get injured or sent off in a match?


Recommended Posts

I can't comment on FM21 as I've stuck with Fm20, but in all the versions I've played I cannot recall a goalkeeper getting sent off or injured during a match. Consequently I never name a gk on the bench. Does it ever happen?

Sent off no, Injured maybe 5 times in 15 years playing the game (That is real life not 15 in game years), I never name a sub gk and never have for this reason

I have seen a very occasional injury, but never a sending that I can recall in all my years of playing CM/FM

Nope, I stopped putting a gk on the bench a few fm versions ago because I can't remember it ever happening to me

The last time I lost a GK to injury without one on the bench was probably 3-4 FMs ago - I put in a centerback, we scored two more goals and didn't concede any.  If I DO have a GK on the bench due to a lack of outfield players, I'll sometimes put him in at striker in the late minutes, I've actually had them score a couple goals.

On the one hand it would be a lot more realistic of GKs got sent off in FM. On the other, we'd probably be waiting a fair few iterations, based on prior history of the series' development, for the frequency of the event to be tuned to an appropriate level.

You know one of the bug threads would be "GKs getting sent off too often" and there's so much other stuff to tinker with and experience in the game that I'm glad GKs aren't getting sent off.

That said, I have had a GK sent off a few times in FM, back when the ME had a bug (FM15 or 16 or 17 I think) where the GK would be holding the ball and leaving the 18. It happened once or twice a season, but it got removed because it was a bug even though it was probably a fair representation of frequency for GKs getting sent off. It just looked bad in the 3D engine so people complained.

If GKs were to get sent off in FM I would prefer it mostly came from GKs coming off their line to slide their body along the ground facing the feet of an opposition player.

In 25+ seasons in FM2020 and 2021, I've never seen a goalkeeper injured or sent off. I never have one on the bench as there is simply no need.

Definitely happens in FM 12. Had my keeper sent off then the sub keeper was injured. Had to play a defender in goal.

And just look at how much of a fuss its creating on the forum - basically it's a none issue.

It's never been something worth addressing and it's most likely working as intended by SI. Probably similar to how injuries in general has been toned down compared to real life.

We think that goalies get sent off or injured because there are a lot of matches played each week, and it happening is noteworthy.

I'm not denying it happens in the game less (or never), but I can't remember a goalie for my team (Bradford City) ever getting sent off or substituted ever.

This season in the Premier League there has been 1 sending off in well over 300 matches. The average seems to be just under 1 per season (over the last 5 or 6 seasons), so roughly 1 in every 400 matches.(I'm referring to just goalkeepers obviously)

Of course, most of us play way more than 400 matches per year of FM, so the game figure is unrealistically low, but IRL it is fairly rare.

Not sure how often goalies have to go off because of injury.

GK’s get injured in matches a fair bit. Perhaps not always so bad they need to be taken off, and with all the modern rules protecting GK’s it’s even less, but it stands to reason they’d at least get some injuries.

In FM they’re basically invincible. Which is disappointing.

And off topic, but seeing as we’re discussing GK’s, does anybody else think it’s frustrating and an oversight that all other players in the team can form chemistry with each other but GK’s are completely cut adrift? I mean, a GK and, at the very least, his CB’s cohesion is vital in football. Why it’s been overlooked for so long is beyond me.

i think the same with a wide front 3. why is my inside forward working well with a defensive fullback and not the deep lying forward giving him assists all season?

Only stats I can find.

 

All card statistics come courtesy of Transfermarkt.

Goalkeeper: Jussi Jaaskelainen

1 OF 12

Premier League Red Cards: 4

Thirty-eight years of age and still going strong as a Premier League goalkeeper, it's hardly surprising that Jussi Jaaskelainen stands as the No. 1 issued with the most red cards in its history.

After all, even the most careful of 'keepers might draw in a handful of cautions after featuring in the same division for 17 years.

Unsurprisingly for a player in his position, all of Jaaskelainen's marching orders have come by way of a direct red, with no second bookable offences to mention.

The Finn's 2001-02 campaign was his most forgettable, where Bolton Wanderers had to see their stopper sent off twice in the same campaign. The other two reds came in the 2004-05 and 2010-11 seasons

It’s a simulation. It’s not working as intended it’s because there is a lack of collision in the game. 
 

One of the most unrealistic aspects of the game. Crazy really.

In well over 1,000 hours for the past 3 years I have never had a goalkeeper sent off or injured during a match. Unless the rules state a gk must be on the bench I never have a backup.

4 times in less than one in-game year. Same type of injury.

This is actually good to see! However it’s an exception to the rule it would seem.
