He's probably the most vocal goalkeeper in the world today! I suggest an 85/86 for teamwork.

Keeper skills 86 ??? :shock:
You must be joking...
His stats are overrated..his abilities have fallen last years,his is 37 years old man!
Fiorentina's goalkeeper Frey has 87 keeper skills..The are not the same at all.
He has good positions at shots at that's his best ability so far.

Keeper Skills ---> 83
Response --->89

Exactly. Nikopolidis relies on his positioning and safe hands. His reactions have declined with the years, but he gradually learned where to position himself in order to be able to block the shots, because his reflexes are not the best and his leap isn't very special. I've been watching him since his Panathinaikos days and he never warranted anything higher than 86 for Response. His reflexes have betrayed him in the past, remember times when he conceded goals and he didn't even move? What he lacks in reflexes and speed he makes up for positional sense, bravery and handling.

I'm willing to drop KS to 85 but no less, his handling is his best asset.

First post seems odd :? His balance combined with his jump would make him somewhat useless at corners. If he doesn't get barged, he'll definitely struggle to jump high enough in a crowd of people. Is this the case? His agility also seems far too low for someone of his build. Unless he struggles to make double saves, i'd suggest you compare him to someone like Henrique Hilario or someone with a similar build. His stamina also seems far too low. His condition would suggest he can easily handle 40 something games a season, but his stamina would suggest he fatigues rapidly. I would suggest you raise it to something like 69/70 ;) Hope that was helpful.

The problem is that generally he is not physically strong, despite his height/weight. I can't remember seeing him standing after a collision with an opponent in mid-air. But despite that he usually manages to catch the ball firmly even if falling. (This is another example of his good handling). I think the current stats reflect him well ingame, I have no problem collecting high balls with him. There's no need to raise his balance and/or jump I think. :)
About AGI, though I didn't have any problems with 74 ingame, I'll raise it to 75 after a look at the ladders. Also raised stamina though I don't believe there's a notable difference between 65 and 69.

His Jump should decreased.. 80 is good for him

I think bitz gives him ATT: 35 because Antonis is very good outside of the box and with the ball at his feet..
he can dribble the other players (Attackers when they pressing) and takes good positions

dunno about that, but he doesn't deserve to be on par with helton. helton is significantly better than niko at everything you've just mentioned, stavrello7 ;)

Eventually Nikopolidis reconsidered and will play for 1 more year.

Olympiacos would have to buy a new good keeper on top of all the transfers to cover weaknesses outfield..

Yes I had, but the site had problems so I'll change him again.

EDIT: I made the changes, I will add an explanation tomorrow, too tired now

I haven't tested him with 77 but I will probably fit him, he is weak in the air nowadays.
