You can hate on him all you want but he at least moves and doesn't rely on his laser eye to save balls. Not saying Onana is a great goalie, but I'd rather have him than an aging Handa right now and I've been defending Handa for the longest time.
How is that hating?

His judgement will get better when he plays more. On ability, Onana is currently much better than Handanovic.

Also, he is much more aggressive and has the ability to dominate. If Handanovic put his body on the line, like Onana did yesterday, he would be injured.

If Limone wont play him in Serie A, before Handa, the only alternative for him to play as many games as possible is for us to reach the Champions League final 🤓

He’s as ready as he’s going to be. Just make the switch and let him play it out. Handa doesn’t have the confidence of team, fans, or probably even in himself at this point.

Yes people will assign blame to Handanovic for literally anything, but there’s no denying his rapidly declining athleticism.

Locker-room dynamics and momentum count for a lot and it’s not like Handa is exactly inspiring confidence at the moment. He’s also the captain so this permeates throughout the team.

He is decent. His overaggression to claim attacking crosses against barca was unnecessary and backfiring. Against Sassuolo, he made a couple of leg saves on non-difficult shots while a better keeper would use his hands. Not sure if it is a lack of concentration or lack of technique. He is still few levels below prime Handa. That being said, he is currently our best GK because at least he repels incoming balls from his goal.

The poor judgment of high balls is a massive and consistent issue. We got lucky there was a handball in the disallowed goal against Barca. Onana made a poor decision to leap out and try to punch the ball away, ended up either misjudging the cross or simply fucking up his execution. This kind of thing seems to be worryingly common with Onana from what I've seen.

Funny isn't it. We have one keeper who can't catch or even contest a high ball if his life depended on it and another who hurls himself at crosses when he has no chance of reaching them. Hopefully our opponents choose to keep the ball on the ground huh.

Let's see him play 10-15 matches at least to see if he makes those mistakes repetitively

He has made them before. Thing we need to hope is when time goes on, he gets better with the anticipation.

This poor judgement on high balls was his main issue when he started with Ajax too.

Over time it almost disappeared. Hopefully when time goes on, and when he plays regurly it will disappear again while playing for us.

Exactly. If he had stayed in front of goal in handball occasion then ball would have gone to a Barca player and it would have most likely been a goal.

I think for balls that are close, but not close enough to contest, you are supposed to treat it like a 1 on 1 situation, like close down, not just stand on the goal line.
Also his incorrect judgement is more of trying to catch it(? At least he wasn't punching it) instead of punching it away.

He was okay, had two vital stops, but let's be real here. If this were Handanovic you'd crucify him for being a "statue" in two goals and for not dropping to prevent the parallel ball in the low cross. You'd be mostly wrong, but you'd be doing that...

Great ball for the 3rd goal, while Lautaro timed the run perfectly.

Noone in their right mind would crucify Handa for that deflected goal

Dude was crucified on FIF when a shot going 30 meters to the right ball deflected at Perisic face and ended up in the bottom left corner man... What are you on about? :lol:
