Got him when I went to a BPL/Bundesliga hybrid and played over 100 games with him now. I was expecting great things from the highest rated rare gold keeper in the game but found him underwhelming overall. Maybe 1 in 10 games he has a blinder but for the rest of the time you may as well have a scarecrow in goal. Honestly. For the price, you should be getting more saves.


In this FIFA the low driven shot is way OP. You need a guy that can do something, sometimes about this. Neuer does nothing, ever. Fahrmann is like 1/15th of the cost and will give you more saves because of the 'saves with feet' trait. Even general saveable shots he underperformed. I understand if it goes in top corner but he was conceding shots 1m either side of him. Way too many on his near post too.


The only thing good about him is his speed off the line (you can smother those 1 v 1's pretty consistently if the opponent sprints too hard) and his kicking- probably the most pinpoint kicking I've experienced with a keeper tbf. The driven pass out of the hands was awesome and led to some counter attack goals. But if you're looking for a guy to give you a few extra wins over a WL, I don't think Neuer is it. Most games my opponent converted ALL of their shots on target and this just seems wrong.

He's a bit A-neuer-ing

Man. I was so excited to use this guy when I bought him. Picked him up for 205k, and I couldn't wait to use him.First game I played, he was amazing. Couldn't be beaten. After then it just went down hill.Let me get one thing straight, this man is good. Very good. However, and its a big however, is 205k worth it for a keeper, right now in the current state of Fifa 18? No.H...

He's on a whole other level

Neuer is a fantastic keeper. He makes some saves that very simply can't be done by others. His positioning is superb and it feels like he comes out of net on his own to stop cut backs and grounded crosses and the fact that he is 6'4 is also just spectacular

He's great

He's on another level, can definitely see why he's the top rated GK released so far.
