I've been meaning to deliver something on Kalac for the past couple of months. Sorry for taking so long. Simcav's original set is good, but I made a few changes. I believe this set could suit him well for the 2002-2006 era.

So yeah, about them changes, I lowered his TS, DA and DS, AGI and TEC. I also downgraded his GKS, as from what I could see, he wasn't worthy of an 84. I took a few points off his MEN too.

Kalac was not a bad goalkeeper. He just seemed incredibly inconsistent and easily breakable under pressure. His rushing out of the goal was quite bad and slow, but his height and balance helped him fend off some shots that were driven towards the upper part of the net.

Overall, his average goals conceded per game (both by Perugia and Milan) are approximately 1,01, which is quite critical. I've talked to a few milanistas a while back and they all told me that Kalac was very inconsistent, on one night managing to concede ridiculous goals, and then on the next be a real "Spider", delivering fantastic saves. What bugs me is that he almost single-handedly bottled up Australia's shot at the 2006WC playoffs. Some might say he was badly positioned on that Srna FK, but that Kovac goal was a tough one to watch. Kalac was so distraught that night that he almost turned a Srna corner kick into a fumbled own-goal (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-VsoBP3n74 at 5:26).

Anyways, here's the set.
