Fuck it. Too lazy to open a new thread, and no one else jumped on it, so re-opening this one. But in the future don't open a thread until you see it referenced on Inter's site, the selling team's site, or the lega calcio site.

Anyway, he's now referenced on Inter.it. Will join up with the team on Sunday.

No we don't even try to negotiate. We go We want X-PLayer.... then they say they want 15 million euro for him.... then we hear Man United or Barca then run away like little girls when we know for a fact Man U or Barca don't need player X. Juve got a sick deal for Isla and Asamoah on co-ownership. Now Napoli is going to get Cuadrado(5 mil), Armero(4 mil) and Benetia on co-ownership !!! We seem to only want to try these deals with Genoa who openly fist us in the ass every time we talk to them.

I am on team Handa !! JC you were great did a lot of wonderful things and got old. Sorry bro

I wouldnt be surprised if some of them bonuses mean he ends up getting paid as much as Cesar :pokerface:



Goalkeeper Samir Handanovic will reportedly have a penalty bonus clause inserted into his Inter contract.

The custodian is a penalty saving expert and will reportedly be rewarded financially for his spot-kick exploits after leaving Udinese for the Nerazzurri.

The Slovenian is on a basic salary of €2m a campaign, but that will rise if a number of bonus clauses are activated.

Handanovic will not only be compensated for spot-kick saves, but also the amount of appearances that he makes and the number of clean sheets he keeps.



http://www.football-italia.net/20878/penalty-clause-handanovic

.h.
07 Jul 12, 10:33
he's not going to get 2.5 million a season in bonuses...

appearance fees typically are up to, like, 5-10k a match (for a full 90 min appearance, dropping by 25% for a sub, and dropping another 25% for being on the bench). Probably looking at up to 1.5x the same again for a clean sheet, and probably about that again for a penalty save...

So you're talking probably 40k a week at the most he can earn in add ons...



and also, tbh, this isnt even remotely unusual. we gave zarate an assists bonus last season (10 assists would be like 150k bonus iirc?), rooney had something like a 7k match appearance at everton bonus...

---------- Post added at 10:33 ---------- Previous post was at 10:27 ----------

tbh, the basic idea is something i agree with.

footballers shouldnt earn very much for doing nothing. if they turn up to training every day of the week, that should be max like 100k a year... image rights of course will always be separate to that, so a top footballer even if he doesnt play (injury or whatever) could still make a few million a year. the rest should be bonuses based on that. like 50k for man of the match, 20k for a goal, bla bla bla

as an example, milito would have earned 600k for goals in the treble year, probably like another 750k for man of the matches, and then you'd also give bonuses for team wins, performance in competitions (e.g. winning the CL probably give another million bonus, 750k for the Serie A, 250k for Coppa Italia...)

for the treble season, lets say on a base salary of 100k, that's already 3.5million, before you argue about bonuses for assists, winning games, and other shit.

if you gave everyone a bonus of like 30k for winning a game, then that would have been like another 35-40*30k in the treble year? so another 1.2 million...

call it 5 million all round, thats more than he made just on his regular wages. Probably less if you add in the CL money, but I never claimed this was already set up well :P




oh, and i fucking guarantee people like maicon or sneijder would never have had their motivation levels drop under this system ;)

Scottish_one
07 Jul 12, 10:38
Fair enough but i'd still like to see the values :P

07 Jul 12, 10:41
you'd also NEVER see some cunt like Muntari or Mancini sat on the bench again just waiting their contracts out... for 100k a year I can guarantee you they'd fucking change club so quick you wouldnt even have time to start a rumour thread about it

---------- Post added at 10:41 ---------- Previous post was at 10:40 ----------

I dont know about Italy, but the taxation system is typically very different for bonuses than salary.

In the UK, it's a 20% bonus tax (i believe) - so if all our players were paid in the forms of bonuses, rather than salary...

lets say 100million a year on their wages (to the players), that means we pay 100/0.8 = 125million a year total (25mil to tax). That's instead of 200 million a year, where 50% goes to tax.

If we changed to this scheme we wouldnt even have to get rid of any of our fucking players, you could sign anyone you wanted.... that 80 million difference there is roughly what we lost last year...

The Sanchez deal etc, its easy to see, but you say I live in a dreamland, so I will accept your opinion and not try to become some egoistical maniac.

The kind of scouting Udine have, they can easily find good young players to replace Handanovic. Yes I agree its not the same for a GK compared to outfiled players.

20million for Asamoah and Isla, if we even bid that much, we would never get them to agree. He would simply make Jube raise the price or terms or conditions.

That doesn't even make sense. He was making less than 1mil in Udine. He is making 2mil now. **If** his agent came in with a higher number than 2mil during the negotiations, then they were fucking dreaming.

He did not take a paycut end of story. If MM or someone said that, that's just crazy spin.

How does that make sense? So we agreed to 2.25m, then later, asked him to go to 2m? Sorry, but that's stupid.

It's a negotiation. It could mean Inter started at 1.5mil or whatever and he started at 3mil. The 2 parties finally agreed at 2mil and that's that. There's no "paycut" there. Incredible spin if you ask me.

I dont think 17mil is a fantastic deal. I think he is overpriced.

I don't know how did you come up with the 17mil number but there is no way in hell that Faraoni is worth 12mil. And even if he was, paying 17 mil for a world class GK is a great deal. Try to name 10 better GKs than Handanović. Go.



Plus we dont really need a new GK. Plus they got Faraoni that they wanted.

You are grasping at straws here. How does us not needing a GK makes Pozzo hard to deal with? What are you even talking about?How does that affect Pozzo's stance? When you evaluate the deal on its own without thinking about the whole Cesar fiasco, it's a pretty sweet deal.



Pozzo isnt easy to deal with, he is a money whore, and we dont have enough of it to satisfy him.

The guy is making smart business decisions and trying do the his best in interest of the club he is running. The idea that he is motivated by irrational hate towards Inter and he is open to business to everyone else is entirely fictional and is not based on facts. Handanović deal puts the dagger in the heart of that ridiculous notion.



The kind of scouting Udine have, they can easily find good young players to replace Handanovic. Yes I agree its not the same for a GK compared to outfiled players.

You said it yourself. Also, bear in mind that Udinese despite being a selling club has also been a pretty competetive team for years. They've managed to win the CL qualification spot 3 times in the last 7 years which is pretty good and if Platini didn't screw up the whole qualification system they would probably played it 3/3.


20million for Asamoah and Isla, if we even bid that much, we would never get them to agree. He would simply make Jube raise the price or terms or conditions.

Except there is ZERO evidence to this opinion, just fantasy talk. Also,I would not classify getting Juventus to raise their offer as hate towards Inter but a smart business move. We could obviously just outbid them and get the player we want. Simple as that.

Finally:


Transfers: Samir Handanovic signs for Inter
MILAN - Samir Handanovic is an Inter player. The Slovene goalkeeper has completed his permanent transfer from Udinese now that all the necessary paperwork has been delivered to the Lega Serie A.

Born in Ljubljana on 14 July 1984, Handanovic came through the ranks at Slovenian outfit Domzale (2002/03) before being promoted to the first team in 2003/04. Udinese brought him to Italy in and loaned him to Treviso at the start of the 2005/06 season. He moved again on loan to Lazio in January 2006 and then Rimini, playing a key role in their 2006/07 Serie B campaign. Handanovic retuned to Udine in 2007/08 and established himself as the Friulans' first-choice keeper, making a total of 179 appearances for the club. He made his debut for Slovenia in 2004 and has since become a mainstay of the national side.

Becoming a decent squad player or something, and that is not difficult to achieve but however Faraoni has showed few great performances with us, despite being played in a tough situation with huge pressure and all.

He's not a kind of player who impresses with his dribblings, passing or shit, but he's definitely a quite promising player. For example compared to other youngsters, he was a level above others in term of spirit, he was also confident and all, which is a huge factor on his career.

Though players with confidence have easier to settle. Faraoni despite at young age, was one of them.

Eh.. Out of the notable youngsters, both those who have played in the first team, and those who have not, (Obi, Faraoni, Castaignos, Longo, Bessa, Crisetig, M'Baye, Duncan, Di Gennaro, Livaja, Coutinho etc etc.) I have the lowest expectations of Faraoni. I remember in the pre-season of last season, he was quite impressive with his crosses from the right flank which were constantly great and highly accurate. Then when playing for the first team,, nothing.. He did play well on the rare occasion and showed energy, but energy alone is not enough.

MANTA
10 Jul 12, 11:28
The only reason people are saying we sold all of Faraoni is the Udinese sight said "permanent transfer"

Yet people say we bought half of Handanovic even though inter's site also says "permanent transfer".

Besnik
10 Jul 12, 11:34
I wouldn't say just 'nothing' because he has definitely produced some quite good performances, if not great ones. I think he made his debut with the first team in the game against Milan in the Supercoppa and he was very well although not many of us were pleased to see him comming in, but he still performed very well.

Then during season when he got playing time, like I said he was pretty good but I can't remember the games though

Faraoni will settle well in Udinese, I'm sure about this. The kid doesn't seem to have issues with confidence so that will help a lot. And Udinese is a team with lower expectations than Inter, and pressure is not huge, so he could make it.

10 Jul 12, 13:30
Hope we didn't let go of him fully. Sometimes these players just aren't good enough and then the switch flips. Not everybody is a phenomenon at 20, especially not defenders. Italian players have also been known to develop a bit slower.

.h.
10 Jul 12, 13:36
Everyone here makes it sound like every team should have 11 stars and nothing else.

You know those solid, reliable, unspectacular players most teams have?...


Faraoni has done well. He needs to develop a lot, in terms of influencing the game, imposing himself, etc, but he's never had any real fuck ups. He looks like a good general purpose defensive midfielder/right wingback. One or two years of good development at Udinese and I would be delighted to take him back.


Everyone got spoiled after Santon. You expectj ust because one guy marked Ronaldo out of the game once, thats how all youth players should introduce themselves..

I hear this album was made for you:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/7f/Over_My_Head_single.jpg


The point is you cant be world class if you arent even top 5 in your position....



This is how I define world class:

It is not about who the 'dream' XI is. Its about the players who could reasonably compete to be in that dream XI. That way, world class isnt a designation for 11 players at a time, but rather, a separation by ability.

Do you really think Handanovic competes on the same level as Casillas, Buffon, etc?


You answer me that :)

I hear this album was made for you:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/7f/Over_My_Head_single.jpg


The point is you cant be world class if you arent even top 5 in your position....



This is how I define world class:

It is not about who the 'dream' XI is. Its about the players who could reasonably compete to be in that dream XI. That way, world class isnt a designation for 11 players at a time, but rather, a separation by ability.

Do you really think Handanovic competes on the same level as Casillas, Buffon, etc?


You answer me that :)

You were asked to name 10 GKs better than Handanovic, and you offered up a ridiculous, and actually hilarious list. I never said Handanovic is better than Casillas or Buffon, I'm simply saying you have no idea how to evaluate GKs if that is truly your top 10 list. Fact is you were asked to point out a top 10 list, and I thought I'd take the time to laugh at your stupidity.

There are no world class GKs outside of Neuer, Buffon, and Casillas at current times. Is Handanovic in the tier below them? Yes.

De Gea at the 2nd half of the season last year was pretty damn good. Has the signs to be on the top level.

Valdez is a pretty good keeper. He's not world class, no, but he's pretty good. If it wasn't for Casillas, he'd be much higher rated.

Courtois? Sure, a bit young, but he's the number 1 goalkeeping prospect in the world at the moment, ahead of Bardi, Belec, Leali, bla bla bla.

Current form Handanovic is roughly as good as current form JC. Some people would say he is bit better, some would say is a bit worse. I don't really believe he is a tier below JC. We didn't sign Handanovic because he is much better, we signed him because he is much cheaper and younger.

If Inter had signed a 26 year old Valdes instead, I would have cried to be honest.

Current top goalkeepers are (IMO, of course): Buffon, Casillas, Neuer, JC, Handanovic, Joe Hart, Cech, Reina, Lloris. And some of those are on their way down to be honest.

If I were to take the form in the last two years only then Handanovic is top 5.

It's incredible the amount of shit Valdes gets. Dude has been IMMENSE for barca, especially the last 3-4 years. IMMENSE. He makes almost ZERO errors, is EXCELLENT with his feet and makes at least one incredible save per game. It's a damn shame the amount of shit he gets.

And just fyi, goalkeeping is much more than just making some spectacular saves. The best ones can do that AND are excellent with their feet. Joe Hart? Lloris? Handanovic? Please, they are good goalkeepers, but not primetime.

Past 3 years, most impressive gks in europe were Casillas, Valdes and Van Der Sar (i know he didn't play this year). Neur right on the outskirts but will surpass them this or next season.

JC is simply error prone now. He is finished as a top goalkeeper. Can still make great saves but is almost guaranteed to brainfart, too often for top clubs.

I'm sorry. Everything that you say about Branca and MM needs facts also too now. We cant assume the most common thing.

And didnt we pay 10m + Half of Faraoni or something?

Assuming that Pozzo doesn't want to deal with Inter out of spite is not the most common thing. It's making the stuff up. I don't make the stuff up about MM and Branca and I try to back up my statements with some evidence.

10+plus half/or full Faraoni is a great deal.

Ahh, the loosest possible definition of world class... Where you dont even have to be known across the footballing world to be world class.


Buffon, Casillas, Reina, Valdes, Neuer, Chourtois (or however you spell his name), Cech, De Gea, Joe Hart

There's nine.... im probably missing a couple of obvious people too

Ok, maybe not a world class but the tier right below it. The bolded are not better than Handanović, you can make an argument either way.

I would even take Handanović over every single of those guys, especially those young ones. Valdes has his moments of greatness but is brain fart prone, Heart is probably at the same level as Handanović and Reina is slightly worse.

Valdes was not that great last season. Prior to that I agree. And Cech was amazing last season in Chelsea's CL run but I believe he is past his best days after all those head injuried.

11 Jul 12, 02:24
Lol i remember the one time ive ever seen him get a chance for Spain over Casillas vs Scotland he sprinted out wildly and Craig Mackail-Smith (who has one of the worst touches and dribbling ive ever seen) just pokes the ball to the side and Valdes clattered him. Then on the resulting penalty he the Scottish player (David Goodwillie) did a stutter step and he fell for it diving waaay to early, leaving the Scotland player to just tap it in pretty much. Got Scotland back into the game.

His Positioning is usually great, and can pull off some great saves but is quite short for a keeper, and has frequent brain farts as others have said.




Wait... Why are we discussing Valdes anyway?

Whats the hardest position to find a world class player for? Keeper. There no two ways about it, world class keepers are few and far between. And once a big team has one, he'll basically stay there his entire career. Thats how it is. You almost never see a team sign a very well known world class keeper who is established, because their team will never let them go.

ATM, inter may not needed Handanovic because they have Cesar, but in the future they most certainly will.
A world class keeper may seem like a strange signing, but when a world class one pop ups... costs very little for his talent and your keeper is going on 33.. it really should become main priority to sign him. Juventus/PSG, are two teams that will be looking to sign a world class keeper pretty soon. It's good to sign Handcanovic now, before PSG or Juve realize his potential, and bid more for him than inter can afford.This move ensures that Inter will have a world class keeper in their team for years to come. How many teams can say that?

Not to mention, Handanovic is GOOD. He is world class good, it's amazing he cost so little. He'd most likely be up at the 30m mark in just a few seasons.

Whats happening to Julio, is indeed extremely shitty. But how much of whats really going on do we know? It's really just speculation. I expect Cesar will stay and compete for his position. And when Cesars form goes down, inter have a world class alternative ready.

Buffon hasn't been the same in years, this year hes been outstanding compared to his past few seasons. Is he better Than Handanovic? Probably, yeah. Casillias, is still basically in his prime, the best in the world. Obviously handanovic isn't as good as him. Neuer? Handanovic is better than him.

Your question doesn't really makse sense to me though. Because you say all these players are world class, and then if he isn't at their level, then he isn't world class? When the difference between them is all pretty big. Neuer is nowhere near Casillias level, so does that mean hes not world class? I mean thats what it seems like your saying to me. Either way, Casillias is the best of the best, buffons past his prime and neuers one of the best in the world, and Handanovics ability falls somewhere the later.

Handanovic IS world class keeper. It's not opinion, it is a fact, he is the best in Serie A the past 2 years, along with the likes of Cesar and Buffon.

ATM for me he is in top5 in the world. Casillas is Number 1, the very best, but the next four, or even 9, don't have much difference in quality. And Handanovic is definitely one of them.

Don't think we can put Handa anywhere near players like Cech, Valdes, Neur, Buffon e.t.c for the simple fact that he's played at fuckin UDINESE. Let's see his nerves and mentality while playing under BIG pressure for a big team. Just ask De Gea about the difference between playing for Atletico and playing for ManU.

Is this a real comment or a joke? Are you comparing Udinese to fuckin Bayern, Chelsea, Real, ManUand Barca?

Come on dude. Just because they finished 3rd doesn't make them a big team. Go talk to their fans today. If they finish 3rd or if they finish 10th, they don't fucking care. Their expectations are LOW. If gk makes an error in a game, he might get some howling from fans for a bit and that's it. Go ask De Gea. Make a mistake in a game for manU and shit is HEADLINE IN ALL NEWSPAPERS. Pressure that he might lose his spot to #2 gk. People calling him garbage for MONTHS. It is just not the same. And Atletico is way bigger than Udinese. Go ask JC. Dude fucking WALKED HOME IN SHAME. Next season, he is being replaced. THAT IS PRESSURE.

Come on man. I thought things like this are common sense. Go talk to a Bayern fan and if they don't win bundesliga every year, it is a failure. Go talk to Barca fans and if they don't win La Liga and CL AND with style, it is a fucking failure. Clearly, the pressure is nowhere near being the same.

Note, I am not saying Handanovic is a bad gk. I think he is good. All I am saying is, we're comparing apples to oranges if we're comparing handa to those other GKs. They are playing at uber high levels and with mega pressure. Look how many times Valdes has to face Ronaldo, Ozil, Benzema...then CL facing top teams with top, top players. Same thing for Neur..this year was a HUGE step up for him going to Bayern, where everything is magnified 10000%. Handa is facing nothing that is comparable.

We will see what Handa is made of now that he has stepped up a bit.

11 Jul 12, 15:46
Helps he'll have EL to deal with this year. Diet CL before getting into the heavy stuff. I think he'll be alright though, he's old enough to understand what it is he's facing. He's been in Serie A for a long time and taken some hard knocks on the way to the top.

MANTA
11 Jul 12, 16:46
So the argument against Handanovic now is he might not be able to handle the pressure of a big club? I am sorry, but that is BS.

Is that the high risk factor you are looking at right now? A 27 year old keeper who has played in Serie A for 5 years and the his ability to handle pressure is suddenly a concern? I could kind of understand this about a 21 year old from a low level league, but a player mature player who has been consistent in the league for years now? So players like Di Natale, Isla, Sanchez are at high enough risk of not being able to handle pressure that clubs should actually think twice before signing them?

Whether you consider him a world class keeper or not, it is very hard to argue that his form in the last 2 years doesn't make him the best keeper in Serie A.

n4l
11 Jul 12, 16:50
Jesus christ....it makes no sense discussing anything on this forum. Why don't you read? Please show me where I am AGAINST Handa?

Pajo
11 Jul 12, 16:53
I get where i4e is coming from, and he get some point.

BUT. Handanovic is TWO years in a row chosen for the best Serie A keeper. And he is soon to be 28, is not u24 young GK. I know it's not the same playing for Inter and Udinese, but still, he has shown that he has talent, is one of the best there is, is in his best years, AND is experienced enough. De Gea is still too young, and last year improved like 200% till the end of the season. Even Neuer was/is not experienced enough, although in him i see the future best.

That being said, even though it's true that we should wait and see how he copes with playing in big team, i believe the chances of mental breakdown are slim.

First, I would disagree that Udinese fans wouldn't give a shit if they would finish third or tenth. The whole argument is flawed, every fan would like to see your team as high as possible and lets not forget all the extra money the team would get from CL and sponsors and so on.

Secondly, english media is totally different animal. They will rip a new hole for everybody if you happen to fuck up. Also De Gea is younger, less experienced. You can clearly see that ManU is investing in future with this young dude, real gamble to appoint so young GK as a first goalkeeper.

Your whole argument is that just because he comes from not so big club as ManU or Barca he will fail, he wont handle the pressure. He has played in CL, several years in Serie A, he isn't some kind of rookie.

Julio has looked like shit since the treble you say? Has he had a defense beyond anything resembling Swiss cheese since the treble? The man is a locker room leader, who kept us in a lot of games this season, whilst our attack and midfield drew constant blanks..

WHAT KIND OF TREATMENT IS JC GETTING?

Have I missed something?

Mid-season, most of us, even people like n4l considered JC to be over. We need to replace him. How the fuck do you guys not know if JC was told in February that we would be looking for an alternative.

Do you really think he heard it through the media?

The only report I heard was that JC was informed months ago that we were trying to get Handanovic so he could be traded. He probably wasn't ok with it, but I haven't heard any report saying he learned from Handanovic from the media.

Sneijder was told last season that because of financial trouble, if a huge offer for him arrives he would be sold. He admitted as much. So I expect they at least extended the same courtesy of a heads up to JC. I am sure he wasn't ok with it, and wanted to stay, but I don't think he was misinformed about the club's intention.

To all people who say Handanovic transfer is no good because he's not used to playing at "such a high level";

Are you all fucking retards? HE WILL BE PLAYING THE SAME COMPETITIONS NOW AS HE WAS AT UDINESE! Serie A, Coppa Italia, Europa League. He played them ALL last season, and has played the first two many times in the past. Saying he lacks experience at a top level because of the team he played for is stupid, it's like saying a BMW will always be faster than a Nissan GTR just because one has a more well known brand. Well guess what, GT-R is the far better car. Just like Handanovic is a great Serie A keeper, not because of what team he played for, just because's HE'S A GOOD GOALKEEPER. It has nothing to do with his former club! And the pressure is BS, all players are under pressure at every club they go to because of the expectations of the supporters, regardless of the profile of the club. If Julione needed to be replaced, then Handa was absolutely the correct choice.

He is the best goalkeeper east of Italy, end of. Probably on the cusp of a Top 10 GKs in the world list.

the mistake is to assume that the 'high level' (at least so far as I have commented in my posts, i cant speak for others) is that that has anything to do with the competitions, but rather, his capabilities.

East of Italy?

What about Cech, Akinfeev for two obvious competitors?

I believe at this particular juncture he is marginally better than both. But I stress, marginally. Cech has declined, Akinfeev's form has dipped a bit lately...the heirarchy may change again with time, but for now I'm calling it like I see it.

This transfer kinda reminds me on Buffon at JuBe, when they had VDS.

JuBe fans were whining for letting great GK in VDS go, while they overpay for good GK, but not proven enough, or not better than VDS. They were caliming that GK is the last they should improve.

We all know how that turned out. :oblivious:

Yeah yeah, i know it was lot different, but there are similarities as well. Especially the fans reaction.

(2)
Guys, something doesn't add up here. Think about it. We didn't want Muntari anymore, we apparently told him so, and then went about shopping him around. We didn't ask him to reduce wages. We got offers for fucking Muntari! We did the same for all our deadweight. Suazo, Mancini, Rivas e.t.c...we all shopped them around, they all received offers but they declined e.t.c.

I find it weird that if we were shopping around JC, we'd get no offers for him. I've not heard a rumor about teams offering for JC. That is just very strange to me. The only thing we've heard so far is that we've asked to reduce his wages. Nothing about us trying to sell him.

any given team requires 5-6 midfielders all of who are expected to see decent game time, but any team requires only 1 top class goalkeeper and rest of the goalkeepers are either washed up 38-39 year olds or youth to warm the bench.

and we are not talking about a average player who can play for 50-60 odd teams in europe, we are talking about a player who used to be one of the best in his category and is grossly overpaid, error prone and aging now.

Still cant see why teams want muntari over JC:lol:

Those things aren't mutually exclusive.

He is overpaid. He is error prone. He is aging. Doesn't mean he's garbage. Doesn't even mean he's not very good. And certainly doesn't mean keeper was anywhere near the top of our list of needs.

He could be co-owed, but with a comittment to buy. FFP doesn't allow you to keep debt between clubs year over year. So I am guessing the way clubs in Italy are doing deals with future payment is signing Co-Ownership with a commitment to buy the rest next year at a fixed rate. So we pay half the 11m now and half next year. Udinese did the same with Isla and Asamoah.

Accounting jiggery aside, he is fully an Inter player.

I answered that handanovic is a great keeper an is proven in serie a but not with conviction needed to justify the 11mil transfer when other areas needed more work first, as why couldn't we just have switched julio and belec throughout the season? Glad handanovic is with us though

Belec isn't that good tbh. Bardi is more promising than Belec. Today Belec is only facing few threats from bilan. If it were not a friendly and if it was, let's say Cassano, Ibra and Robinho, instead of El Shaarawy, Belec would probably conceded more.

we could've switched julio and castelazzi during the season, but handa is:

- looking ahead for the next seasons (but not really needed at this moment, to be honest)
- trying to balance the books (jc costs 9m in gross wages per year on the book, handa is 4m in gross wages + 2,25m depreciation)

Lol, it's fascinating to me, how some of you are hating Handanovic. Is it his fault, that Cesar is not a priority anymore? I can understand your frustration, but c'mon dude.

I would understand that if Handanovic was a poor player, but hating him when he clearly is a world class quality goalkeeper, is beyond me. I know that Cesar is an icon of this team, but at the moment and for quite a bit of time already, i would not say that he is on Handanovic's level - no offence towards Cesar at all, but let's just be totaly objective here.

Give this guy a chance to prove himself in some big games and you will be glad, that you have signed him. In my opinion, he does not get enough credit at the moment, at all. If anyone who has watched him closely for a few years says that he is not on the TOP 5 ladder of the world, i wonder what he has been watching.

Now go on and flame me, Cesar fan's. Again, i have nothing against Cesar, but acting like "get the fuck out" towards Handanovic becouse he was asked to replace him, is a bullsh*t.

Handanovic returns for Inter
By Football Italia staff

Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic should be fit to make his debut for the club in their next game against Torino, according to Sport Mediaset.

The Slovenian shot-stopper joined the Nerazzurri from Udinese for €11m during the pre-season, but has yet to play for Andrea Stramaccioni's side having had a knee operation in August.

Ricky Alvarez and Dejan Stankovic, who have also been sidelined recently, are due to be fit for the match against Il Toro on September 16.

The Italian website also report that Joel Obi has returned to training at Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti, following a two month spell out with injury.

One player who won't be returning for at least another two weeks however, is Christian Chivu - the Romanian has suffered a knock to his right foot and won't be fit until at least September 23.

Source: http://football-italia.net/24791/handanovic-returns-inter

Two good news: Handanovic will return and Chivu is out some more time.

Samir Handanovic looks absolute world class even when he doesn't have to do anything special. There's such level of security about him.

Hope there is no-one left questioning the footballing (and financial) reasons behind this deal change of no. 1.

Great Goalkeeper.

Only fools would have questioned his transfer on a footballing perspective. JC had the heart and passion for us, but as a GK he just wasn't reliable.

I like the cool and indifferent demeanour of Handanovic. He never seems perturbed on the pitch. Even when the opposition players shoot wide, he has the look like he cast a spell on the ball to make it go wide.

Handa is brilliant...Doesn't quite have the Cesar reflex or aerial ability,but he is taller and his arms are longer which makes up for it.

He is also a very relaxing presence in defense which is always a good thing.

Ever since grande JC play for us, I would always prefer agility keepers... Handa is great but agility still very low to my liking.... Hope it can get better....

He boss! Both Handa & Cast are 8055 keepers. I'm glad we've always been blessed when it comes to goalkeepers. Always had the top ones in our squad.

Sorry about all the hate in the beginning. It's just that we loved JC too much. You're totally worthy of our #1 shirt.

GRANDE HANDA :proud:

Fantastic performance. He's the new boss.

It is a somewhat ambivalent sensation to face the fact that he is clearly superior to Julio in every facet of the game.

He is a calming presence in the back, and, to be honest, I think that is one of the major reasons behind Ranocchias positive development. You are much less nervous, i.e. less prone to make mistakes, when you know that the consequences of these are less likely to be severe.

So glad that we finally signed him! One of the best GK in the world for sure!

Yeah, I feel totally no worry when long shots are coming because I know Handa will catch those which are catchable. He's also very good in "close-combat" just like Julio so we've taken no backsteps in that department. Did you see how he grabbed the ball from Bojan/Robinhos feet in that one situation which ended up to be an offside? One of the best investments from the summer after all.

He`s really still young, if he keeps it that way, in 2 years time he will be THE best GK in the world without a slight competition. word.
