    Very interesting question - especially when you have 4 veteran goalies in Kasey Keller, Mark Schwarzer, Antti Niemi and Ricardo Batista.

    Obviously Batista will not be a starter and he will probably be on loan again.

    Keller stole the show late last season, forcing Niemi to be a spectator on the bench; but now Fulham re-signs Niemi and adds Schwarzer, which indicates Keller would probably be out of contention for a starting job. While this could be Keller's last season, he may be back on his original role as a true backup.

    Competition between Niemi and Schwarzer should be fierce. In a strictly speaking, both were underperformed last season; yet I still believe Niemi is a better player, except the fact that Fulham may have a pre-conditional starting guarantee for Schwarzer when he stayed firm on rejecting offers from Bayern Munchen and Juventus.

    Therefore, the answer of your question is Schwarzer.
