This bump for the thread has reminded me of something i've wanted to bring up about Navas this season. Keylor's reflexxes are still outstanding, and he has indeed been a big part of both of Madrid's back to back CL's, but i think this season Keylor has been quite erratic and sloppy with his goalkeeping skills. Very simple shots are poorly handled, and Keylor moves more awkwardly to difficult shots. There are still impressive moments where Keylor stops very very difficultly placed shots, but his typical performance is lower than in the past for his goalkeeping skills.
Keylor's positioning, and his sense for defending the goal is also still a bit all over the place, and he's not the type of goalie i believe will sustain an elite defence rating, but perhaps the best way to rate Keylor at the moment is to bump Defence higher, while dropping GKS to 83 or lower. I'm not sure about how low GKS should be or how high Defence should be- what he's shown isn't what i would like to rate as a high Defence Goalkeeper, but he has been very effective in various situations which show a remarkable difficulty in beating Keylor in various shooting positions that isn't due only to his reflexes. Take that Messi chip shot from 2015-2016, the way he responded to that shot wasn't great skill, but it showed how Keylor read that shot instantly, despite what a well placed and unexpected chip it was. I think alot of great goalkeepers would have struggled with that shot, even goalkeepers with great reflexes, and that moment stuck in my mind.
I'm really not so sure about how to best rate Keylor- to rate him for the last two seasons (i guess 2015-16 in particular as 2017 was a bit off for Keylor) i can see the sense in giving him values a bit higher than what i think his long term abilities are around just to capture the types of performances he consistently made in this past historic period, but on the other hand, looking at what level he typically performs at, and specifcally the glaring errors he makes in both goalkeeping and positioning, i think the current set is ok, and i even see ways to downgrade Keylor in some areas.
The only attribute that is a constant beside Keylor's reflexes (anyone notice this save from the allstar match a week ago?: https://streamable.com/4a036
) and jump, is one of Keylor's most impressive attributes: his mental strength and fortitude- he is a dependable last line of defence because he isn't fazed by when he makes errors or he doesn't wilt in high pressure situations, he performs at the same level, and takes responsibility with resilience and a visible determination. I feel like a higher Mentality rating is deserved- though how high i am not sure exactly.
If you don't put effort into your post, i won't put effort in my response.
