This is my first review, and unfortunately, it won't be a positive one, thanks to this man, Courtois (of course the TOTS version); i've just read a lot of good reviews here, and i can't understand how people can suggest this guy as Goalkeeper for your team, really.
I bought him for my BBVA's team, and i was expecting a lot from him, or at least, a good performance, especially because i've already tried other TOTS GK, like Marchetti, and i was very happy for his performances during the matches that i had played with him: for this reason, i thought that Courtois could do the same, but unfortunately i was wrong.
In fact, he was the only problem in my defense (the two CB were Ramos and Pepe, you know, people that you cannot pass very easily, so all the blame is for Courtois).
Ok, let's see his statistics:
Diving 84: One of the two things that makes him a useless Goalkeeper, and the other one is his height; he really doesn't know how to dive, and i'm not joking (due also to his height). Every long shots could be a problem for him: most of the goals that i've took were shoots made outside the box.
Reflexes 90: This stat might be a good one for a Goalkeeper, but not in this case: due to his poor diving, his good reflexes won't save you to take a lot of goals from outside the box.
Handling 94: Ok, nothing bad to say here, but… Don't think that because he has the best handling of all the game, will catch every single powerful shot. And again, due to his bad diving, it will be a useless statistic; for example, today i've played a match online, and he took a goal on a free kick from just outside the box, by Diego (the brazilian CAM from Bundesliga, Wolfsburg, that has 76 in shooting): the shot wasn't so angled, but he took ages just to dive, and so he took the ball just with one hand, and ball just rolls over his hand and then was in the net, even if he had 94 in handling.
Speed 55: Nothing special to say here, his speed is normal.
Kicking 67: Personally, i don't care about the kicking of a Goalkeeper, like the most of us, but in the case you care about it, just don't buy him due to this stat.
Position 87: I will be repetitive, i know, but this statistic is not true, due to his bad diving: i mean, in the 1vs1 Courtois is not so bad, thanks to reflexes and position, but only if he is very close to the opponent striker, cause you know, there is the "little" problem of diving.
Height: Reading this, you will say "What? Is not a statistic of the card, who cares"; well not, because this is the only peculiarity of Courtois, that is at the same time, positive and not. I guess that he has such a bad diving due to his height: it's not so easy diving if you are so tall; but, due to his height he can easily beat anyone on corner kicks. Really: on corner kicks, just press triangle and he will run into the box to catch the ball, and will NEVER fail. (obviously if the ball is inside the box, and not out). For his Height, he will be probably the tallest player in the box, making easy for him to catch the ball, and also, remember that he has 94 in handling.
So, making a summary:
In general, he's not a bad Goalkeeper, but he's not the kind of Goalkeeper that you expect from a TOTS player: i mean, when you buy a TOTS player, you hope, no let's say you want, that this player could do the difference in the field, during a match. And unfortunately Courtois, can't do that: his weakness is the diving of course, that penalizes all the other statistics, especially on every shot made outside the box.
The only positive thing is the good handling, specially on corner kicks, where he will always catch the ball if you "order" to do it, pressing triangle (on PS3): but this is not enough to make you spend for him 75.000 credits (this is the price that i paid for him). So, if you are making a team of the Liga BBVA, just buy Diego Alves or Valdès, if you don't want to spend a lot of money, or if you want a good Goalkeeper, you know what you have to do: just buy Casillas, a lot better instead of Courtois TOTS. The real price for him, in my opinion, is around 35.000 - 40.000 credits: if you don't find him at this price, i won't suggest you to buy this TOTS Goalkeeper.
