Six Premier League goalkeepers you should consider for your fantasy football team

Ollie Irish

3rd, August 2009


In order of preference:
Tim Howard (Everton)
On current form, you could make a case to argue that T-Ho is the best keeper in the world. He’s definitely in the top five and although he’s not cheap, he does cost a bit less than Cech and Reina (see below), and he will get you a good haul clean sheets.
Petr Cech (Chelsea)
Looks to me like Cech is getting back to the sort of form that saw him hailed as the best keeper in the world. The nasty head injury he suffered at the knee of Stephen Hunt definitely knocked his confidence, but I think he’s more than used to the scrum cap by now, and I expect him to have a solid season, behind a back four that won’t give up many chances. On the down side, Cech is an expensive fantasy buy, but he’s sure to start every league game (fitness permitting) and should offer you a steady flow of points from clean sheets.

Pepe Reina (Liverpool)
Along with Cech, Reina is

    On the contrary, Schwarzer is rather cheap on the Premier League fantasy football.

    Fulham keep it FAIRLY tight? That’s like saying Idi Amin was a ‘fairly’ bad man. We conceded less than all but the top 3 last season. And as nice a bloke Tim Howard is, I don’t think many would put him in the top 5 (Casillas, Buffon, Reina, VDS, Schwarzer/Cech/Julio Cesar)

  3. Ollie says:

    Well Joe, Schwarzer is still in my top 5 picks – I just don’t see how you’ll concede as few this time around. LOL at the Idi Amin reference though.

  4. Joe says:

    Fair enough, I was just highlighting the understatement in that sentence. We’ll be OK though, Hangeland is likely to stay because puzzlingly Arsenal have been the only ones sniffing around (knock wood) and they won’t splurge because he’s A) Tall, B) More than 12m and C) a winner instead of a whiner.

  5. wllmhll says:

    reina would be my first choice, schwarzer would be good bet too.

  6. Murfmensch says:

    I’ve always been impressed by Friedel, though AV’s attacking style means fewer clean sheets.
    The same applies to Gomes, who was excellent after four matches under Harry, but you must figure that Spurs will let in goals while away. And in the last two minutes… And versus ManU…
    I have to stop typing and have a drink.

  7. Gonufc says:

    So glad Van Der Sar isn’t in this, no doubt he used to be a quality keeper but in the last 2 seasons i think if he wasn’t at Man U then he’d be getting criticised alot. Top 5 keeper in the world? One word: Kicking.

    Robinson is crap!!! Jaskelainen And Even Better english 1st choice keeper David James should hv been included!!!
