Here at COS we have decided to help you out in picking your fantasy football team. Today we look at goalkeepers and give you our choice of expensive, mid-range and bargain deals.
Welcome once again to the Fantasy Football 2011/12 season.
We have teamed up with our pals at the Metro to bring you this season’s edition and it could not be simpler, or cheaper, to sign up.

The rules are basic too.
Pick a squad of 15 players with a £100million budget (four players/Premier league team) and put them into a formation.
Today we are looking at goalkeepers, and we have given you our choice of expensive, mid-range and bargain deals for the shot-stoppers.
When selecting your man between the sticks, certain criteria have to be considered in order to gain points.
Keepers can gain points by scoring a goal (50), assists (10), every save (2), penalty save (25) and by keeping a clean sheet for every 10 minutes played (2).
They can lose points if they miss a penalty (-10), score an own goal (-25), concede a goal (-10), and receive a yellow (-10) or a red card (-25).
So here are our selections, and in the next few days we will be releasing our choices for defence, midfield and strikers.
Expensive: Joe Hart (Manchester City) – price: £3.8m
Took over the Shay Given mantle effortlessly and broke the club record for the number of clean sheets in a season (18), so no wonder he is expensive. City had the joint meanest defence (33) in the league last season, and with the arrival of Gael Clichy expect it to be equally tight. Hart did not miss a game last year, so if he plays well expect him to rack up some serious points.
