1) I'm in my 7th season, league day 19, playing for Werder Bremen. Actually Kaiserslautern is bottom of the league and this team is not taking part to the game. Win: 0 - Dr: 0 - Lost: 0 - GF: 0 - GA: 0 - pt: 0. Nothing whatsoever ! Consequently, each league day, another team is playing 2 games.

Statistics screen, league day 18 : Hansa Rostock played against Monchengladbach, then another match vs Vfl Wolsburg.

League day 17 : Hamburger SV played against Vfl Wolsburg, then vs Hansa Rostock. Etc. When my team will do this I suppose the game will crash or hang.

2) The German league is monopolized by a small group of families. Team info for Bayern : 3 Belicaks, 4 Benos… Bremen : 3 Belicaks, 1 Beno, 2 Balics. Leverkusen : 2 Belicaks, 2 Baliks. Bochum : 3 Belicaks, 4 Benos, 2 Balics. Dortmund : 3 Belicaks, 2 Baliks. Etc.

Belicak A. (Bremen), Belicak K. (Bremen) and Belicak D. (HSV) are amongst the top scorers for the league, with 4 Balics, 2 Bosnjaks, etc. This league must be corrupted beyond repair, i suppose. ;-)

3) Is it any difference between spectacular, normal and comfortable saves ??? Can't find any.

4) Sometimes the opponent is scoring but the app is displaying the wrong picture ("easy save" for example).

5) The graphics are ugly IMHO.

TheGoalkeeper v1.0 could be a fairly entertaining shareware, if it was not ridden with bugs. If they're not fixed i'm afraid this app will face a harsh battle against relegation. In the trash can, that is. Please, fix this app Mr Developer, or i swear i'll kill it. :-)

Then there's the Statistics Screen, where you can take a look at every possible stats you want! Lastly, the Contract/Coach Talk Screen will let you choose your attitude towards the team, if you want to stay there or move, and also talk to your coach to convince him to make you play the next match (in case he don't think that way!).

The match itself show stats for each player of both teams, like goals, injuries, substitutions, etc. The commentary describe what's going on: when the opponent striker tries to score, you have 3 options: Arcade Save in which you must intercept the ball using the mouse, Strategy Save in which you choose between three options, and Instant Save that, as the name suggests, is calculated instantly.
