View Full Version : Good but cheap keepers

21-05-2003, 11:42
Does anyone know of any good goalkeepers which are not so expensive? there must be some out there.

i'm looking for a 2nd or 3rd keeper, and i don't wanna buy keepers like Toldo, Barthez, Kahn, etc. (who are a bit more expensive)

thanks in advance.

Van Der Sar(Netherlands) would have to be the best value keeper I would say. When I started dumping the default players and grabbing players who were free(ie. weren't with any clubs), Van Der Sar and Chalivert were top of my list for goalkeepers.

And also, depending on which team you are playing as, if the original team had a reasonable keeper, you can pick him up for free as well. For example, I started as Real Madrid, so Casillas, their GK was free. If you start as Man U, Barthez will be free.

Hope that helps

Rustu of Turkey.
Robinson of Leeds.
Schmeichel of Villa.

21-05-2003, 19:51
Without doubt; Rustu, Robinson, David James and Edwin Van Der Sar.

21-05-2003, 20:04
Yashin (known as Oshin) the unlockable player is free too with good stats. Not had much success with him though. Worth a try?

How do you unlock him? I only play custom cups etc, so I wouldn't have had the chance.

21-05-2003, 22:19
You have to win the master league division 1 to unlock 11 classic players. Do it three times to unlock all 33.
Includes Best, Baggio and other stars.

And if you complete the umbro training challenges, you get one player for each one done (over 1,100 points) which is 7 players I think.

Jennings is in the third set of players you unlock winning the master league div1 for the third time. Hes a quality keeper.

Chilavert is also good. Gilmar is worth a look also

who does he play for?

Who is Kiraly and Sylva? I knew Sylva played for Senegal and you've made it clear Kiraly plays for Hungary but do you know anything about them such as what clubs they play for, or are they good irl?

25-05-2003, 23:33
Gilmar is in the classic Brazil team.

I knew Zygalski was a devil look at his post count!!! :D

Anyway, is Gilmar worth buying?

26-05-2003, 00:17
Did it pass the 666 mark? I didn't notice, sorry!
Gilmar was great and probably the best keeper in PES1 but there are better in PES2.

The Columbian keeper looks to be a star.
Looks at his special skills. Not bad at all.

I will definetely take a look at him.

the romanian keeper has good stats . i think hes called " Stelea "
I bought the eternal englang goalkeeper " Banks " he is quality

26-05-2003, 10:28
Buffon's pretty good as well, although more expensive than others

Is Tafarel in there? I normally only use Chilavert and Robinson.
Is Higuita there too? Guess he must be. He should be able to do the scorpion kick, eh?

04-06-2003, 19:00
Yeah, just like the special stat that lets Seaman get lobbed easily....

04-06-2003, 21:31
You leave my Seaman alone!

09-06-2003, 13:30
Have any of you bought Van Der Sar? If so, how much did you pay for him? I've tried but failed to sign him. Think I might have been trying to exploit his lack of club team!!:D :D

09-06-2003, 19:03
Jorgensen of Denmark is free and has great response

09-06-2003, 19:26
Hedman of Sweden is shite and not to be bought.
He cost me a place in a tournament.

I don't know, maybe he's good in ML but I'm not going for it.

09-06-2003, 22:48
I've gone through so many keepers in my time on PES2 it's untrue. I'd hate to count how many points I've wasted. But I've narrowed them all down after testing to what I have found and in my opinion are the best 3 keepers.

1) Toldo (Not Free though)
2) Van Der Saar (Free)
3) Dida (Free)

All three are tall (always handy) to claim crosses etc and get down to those corners! I was particularly impressed with Toldo's handling. Van der Saar always seems to claw saves to safety away from oncoming strikers, and Dida is an all-rouner. Never tried Chilavert myself though. Me and a mate have a rivallry between our two teams and we're not allowed to have the same keeper (he has Chilavert). We always play 30 minute games (so many hours of my life!)

Here's the rerst of the people I've tried:

Peter Schmeichel - Gave away 2 penalties in first (& last) 3 games
Oliver Kahn - Twice. Shows that stats aren't always everything
Yashin - Bit short and DON'T let them shoot near post
Jennings - Same as above really
Cordoba - Not as good as stats suggest
Robinson - Parries too often, usually to attackers
Gilmar - Not as good as he was in PES1 (when he was king)
Buffon - Good, but makes unneeded dives
Maier - Bit short, German. Joking
Preud'Homme - Don't expect him to claim many crosses
I forget the rest

10-06-2003, 15:49
No one's mentioned Sorensen, have they? I have just moved up to iv 2 on hard and Sorensen has done a mighty job to get us there. Although I do have to keep coming back from 0-2 down...?!??! Maybe he's rubbsih or I am?

10-06-2003, 16:42
I usually beat Denmark 10-0 on 5 stars.
Could be it's him.

10-06-2003, 16:45
Are you exaggerating or are you really that good?:) :) :)

10-06-2003, 16:52
I have recently beaten Denmark in the world cup (on random form)
8-0, 10-0, 11-0, 12-0.

I think I just do well against them.
But I always lose to bloody Uruguay for some reason!

10-06-2003, 22:14
Weird! Sorensen just pulled off a brilliant double save in my 2nd ever game in div 2 on hard. He kept us at 1-0 when they were throwing the kitchen sink at us! By the way, mambo, you're avatar is way cool even if the sequel sucks!

26-06-2003, 14:45
No, no, no!

Kernozenko, sub for Ukraine is superb compared to what is stats say he should be. He's so cheap, just give him a go!

26-06-2003, 23:01
Stelea - Romania
Pletikosa - Croatia
Quim - Portugal
Niemi - Finland

27-06-2003, 12:27
Dutruel- he is one of the free lance palyers his nationallity is frence a very good keeper

27-06-2003, 12:33
Is that freelance is in a hidden player or as in he played for the club you became and then was freelance?

I think you mean the sub Barcelona keeper.
He won't be freelance unless you are playing as Barcelona!

27-06-2003, 12:45
Dutruel- he is one of the free agents and very good he is my first choice goal keeper at the moment oh yeah and he is french if that helps, but and all round good keeper

27-06-2003, 12:48
yeah sorry he is a fee agent cause im barcalona sorry!!

27-06-2003, 12:48
OK, thank you.
Which team are you playing as?

hehe... jorgensen is a midfielder, his name is Sørensen :)

anyway, old post.

About the Denmark thing Zyg. I also beat Denmark easily, but for some reason i am also extremely good with Denmark. I dont think Sørensen is a bad keeper have had him a couple of times, and he always impresses somewhat. The keeper i am least satisfied with is Khan as he always has these insanely high long kicks, him and kelsen :D.

Not a big gripe seeing as i often throw it. but still.

10-07-2003, 12:18
Rossi - no good stats but very good on the field
he is sub in milan ac team

ps:sorry for my english, i am french

10-07-2003, 13:21
foxinthebox, That's good english so don't worry!
When I play as AC Milan, I always play Rossi too.

Denmark are a strange team. Must rely on player form a lot or something.

I'm currently looking for a good keeper so I bought Buffon to check him out.

Chuck Morris
10-07-2003, 13:34
I have always used Chilavert since i bought him in the 3rd division.

10-07-2003, 19:29
If you are looking for a good keeper, I advise you Jenner
you can find him in the freelance players.

10-07-2003, 20:54
Thanks but I need someone non classic as I am trying to play with a limit of three in my team at once.

11-07-2003, 14:11
So far my absolute favourites in goal are Buffon and Toldo, they seem a class above the others, especially Buffon 1-on-1

11-07-2003, 19:02
I don't rate classic keepers that much anyway, all their stats are good, but they just don't deliver. In the cases of Yashin and Jennings, they seem to make some dire cock-ups regularly. I think the only decent performance-wise classic keeper is Illgner.

I prefer to stick to keepers like Toldo, Van Der Saar, Chilavert, Rossi, Dida and Buffon - the six best in the game IMO

Just out of interest Zygalski, how have you gone about choosing which three classic players and who? One from each outfield position or just your favourite/most effective?

11-07-2003, 19:36
At the moment I am using:
Koeman Riijkaard or Beckenbauer in CB depending on form or fitness (great at interceptions and passing plus Koeman scores loads of headers at corners),
Pelé at OMF (great at general passing, assists and scoring),
Van Basten at CF (almost always shooting on target).

Also have Gullit as backup. Shame he's down down to play in defence as well as IRL he could play everywhere!

11-07-2003, 23:25
I always thought he was more of a LIB/SW than an AMF.

Are you not a fan of Maradona? I seem to find him as the heart of my team!

11-07-2003, 23:33
Yeah, I had Maradona in my last ML team but this time I went for Pelé and he's been great.
Maradona's wages are high too but it's a good idea to have him as backup for Pelé.

Now where's that cheque-book gone to.....

12-07-2003, 09:36
pele is great alongside maradona

22-08-2003, 09:17
Mmm...lot of good keepers....nice...but i'll think i'll stay with Casillas and Cesar as backup...maybe i'll buy Robinson as 3rd keeper...

26-08-2003, 08:40
kiraly is the hertha berlin keeper.
im curious to know how the new master league in pes3 will work because more clubs means less FREE LANCERS.

26-08-2003, 20:00

Yeah it's a pain but it does make it more realistic. Some of the players you can get for free in PES2 are ridiculous.

27-08-2003, 15:29
i found that the keeper from Boca Juniors his name is dead long about 17 letters in it but it starts with Abbacon... can't remember the rest but i bought as i sub and he now forcing his way into the side due to great performances

27-08-2003, 17:06
I think it is Abbancontierri or something.

29-08-2003, 10:51
yeah he's good, Abbondancieri, he's always a pain in the a** when i play against them...

01-09-2003, 18:44
I hate playing the HSV keeper. I've forgotten his name, but he always saves my fantastic shots.

08-09-2003, 04:32
Kiraly? i was gona put his name forward. Hungarian guy, wears big ol' trousers IRL :-\ bit of a character but a fine keeper. Chilavert is a demon cos he can hit a free-kick but Van Der Sar is possibly the best for the price.

Canizares is a little bítch to play against - Valencia are rank on pes2 but he always saves enough of my shots. Oliver Kahn tho has made the best save ive ever seen on pes2 - i cant describe it but it was amazing. i almost couldnt believe what i was seeing !!! shame i couldnt do an instant replay - something i 100% want to see in pes3

08-09-2003, 11:08
I would go for Kiraly, Hedman, Zdravkov, or Stelea. They are excellent keapers, with great saves, and stuff like that. And, the most important, they are freelancers. Perfect to buy when starting the ML.

08-09-2003, 11:10
Oh, and don't forget Ricardo! He's brilliant. Always having troubles with him playing against Portugal. And he's a freelance to.

My three Boca Juniors GKs on my master league are all quality and are free players:

Oscar Cordoba(known as Oscal Bocorda or something):Columbia

Hope I helped.

01-10-2003, 15:12
I've got Oscal as my 2nd choice Jimmy but when I put him in he does'nt seem to be half as good as David James. Buy British mate!! :):):)

Jimmy The Hammer
01-10-2003, 15:48
I like to use keepers with the feed kick ability, as their kicks always seem to have a higher success rate of reaching one of your players, and not your opponents. As far as I know, James does not have that ability, so I prefer Cordoba really.

01-10-2003, 15:53
Good point mate. Never really looked for that when making a purchase. Normally just try to get the best shot stopper in town...... I think I'll have a look at the comparison when playing to see if your point works for me... :)

03-10-2003, 21:16
Chilavert is the best, and he's also free.

03-10-2003, 21:17
Oh, and I forgot to mention, his stats for free kick taking are incredible, so if you don't have anyone in this area, then Chilavert is someone who'll score for you as well as block the shots.

03-10-2003, 21:35
banks - called binks - eternal england
schumacher- called schucher - gen germany
lez yashin - called oshin - russia
and of course chilavert

i pick yashin every time

08-10-2003, 07:32
just to let ya gal know a thing.
Oscar Cordoba is not from Columbia.. Columbia is in Canada.
Oscar Cordoba is from Colombia; the last Copa America Champions..
I wish Higuita was there.. How can you create him?
I am from Colombia


12-10-2003, 18:05
kiraly plays 4 hertha berlin so he should be free in the game

schmeichal is quality 99% of the time

chilavert makes wicked saves , but also acts a bit barthez occasionally- he has let in some of the stupidest goals i have ever conceded

and mondragon, nobody else rate him??

27-10-2003, 03:36
I've got Given as my ML goalie - good value in PES3 at 550-odd salary pts.
