Why this Onana guy? This is another expensive Maguire type of mistake. Go for the best or keep De Gea.

Out of interest, who’s the ‘best’ Singh?

Curious, who in your opinion is the best?

Also what if the “best” doesn’t suit Ten Hags style?

Onana quite simply IS the best footballing goalkeeper in the world, outside of Ederson.

He’d completely revolutionise the way we played and suit ETH’s philosophy down to the ground.

This Onana guy? Played in the CL final, you’re talking like we’ve plucked some 16 year old from Maccabi Haifa.

The best footballing gk in the world that is a huge statement. I don't agree, however I do think he is what we need in a keeper.

Best is probably Diogo Costa but hear that Onana is best ball-playing GK, justvwhat ETH wants, will revolutionise how we play.

Best is the ac milan french guy then onana and then costa imo from who is available. Costa is poor on crosses and a bit of ddg in him but good with his feet. ac milan guy who is the starting french goalie is the best but would be pretty expensive i reckon.

I personally think Jan Oblak is the best.

Go for Mbappe or keep Weghorst.

Our u14 goalkeeper played out on pitch today and was nutmugging people for fun. He is the best.

Won’t Onana have to go to AFCON in January?

12.) 02 Jul 2023

Onana can pass the ball better than most of our team, ten hag knows and trusts him, he would change our entire style of play.
No brainer.

Good point that we’d lose our gk for a month. Brilliant!

Hasn’t Onana retired from international football?

15.) 02 Jul 2023
02 Jul 2023 22:46:52
Donnaruma of PSG would be my choice but doubt he is available.

Is Emi Martinez a bad shout?

17.) 03 Jul 2023

Don’t think there is one world class keeper out there but to be honest there aren’t many world class players either.

{Ed077's Note - Magic Mike is the closest to World Class level for keepers that may just end up with a transfer this window.

I believe Onana does not play for Cameroon anymore because the head coach wanted a more traditional GK.

19.) 03 Jul 2023
03 Jul 2023 07:52:37
Onana was sent home at the world cup for some dispute with their coach. Not sure if the coach still there as many teams make changes after world cups.

20.) 03 Jul 2023
03 Jul 2023 09:18:27
Emi Martinez isn’t a bad shout at all whoever mentioned that one. He’d be adored by the Stretford End. The best……. I’d say Jan Oblak. English……. big fan of Arron Ramsey.

Modern goalkeepers generally test the nerves of fans but it is a by product the sweeper keeper style they expect to play.
Onana is perfect for progressing from the back and will help avoiding the press. He does worry me with how much he seems to parry the ball or punch it rather than catch but again this seems to be more common with modern goalkeepers.
EtH knows him well so if we go for him he at least knows the good and bad he will get.
On the international front I believe he has retired.

Of course, we all know that DDG signs a new deal don’t we!

Onana got dropped from Cameroons WC squad because he was taking too many risks with the ball, he subsequently retired after a bust up with
Rigobert Song and won't be at the ACN unless Song gets the boot, which is possible.

But you can imagine him taking a few risks at OT that don't come off, it won't be long before the grumbling will start.

24.) 03 Jul 2023
03 Jul 2023 22:14:21
I wouldn't have him i'd go for Oblak if i'm letting De Gea go. Onana will not be as good as some of u think he would be but good luck.

So who IS the best? Well according to Google lol, the best goalkeepers in the world are (in no particular order) :
Coutois, Ederson, Martinez, Neuer, ter Stegen, Donnarumma, Bounou, Alisson, Oblak, Buffon, Maignan, and our former GK himself De Gea.
A subjective list of course being generated by AI, but it's fair to say most people's go-to names are on there, even if the man of the moment Onana isn't. A few eyebrow raisers I'd say (I remember Bounou from the World Cup, but I mean. ), and a few maybe a little past their prime.

{Ed002's Note - It is not being generated by AI.}

I'd say Onana is definitely amongst the top 10 best keepers in the world currently. While he is still young enough to continue to improve.

At the moment I'd say Alisson is the best keeper in the world followed closely by Maignan. After that its pretty close between the next 8 and is debatable about the order.

The best two keepers in the world play for City and Liverpool in my opinion.

28.) 04 Jul 2023

Sim, I thought Ederson had a poor season personally.

29.) 04 Jul 2023
04 Jul 2023 10:37:09
Oblak is like De Gea, unreal shot stopped (tbc with De Gea in recent seasons tbf) but he couldn’t pass C.V. even if he tried.

30.) 04 Jul 2023
04 Jul 2023 11:12:51
Shappy - He didn't have to do anything last season because everyone in front of him were so good.

31.) 04 Jul 2023
04 Jul 2023 12:34:21

I agree. top of the pile for me. Excellent in all aspects of the game. Both also helped by having defenders who are comfortable on the ball in front of them.

32.) 04 Jul 2023
04 Jul 2023 13:12:02
The best is Ederson for me, in terms of ability and being this much-fabled 'modern' keeper. But it's true he doesn't have to do nearly as much as most goalkeepers (if any) so doesn't fall under the spotlight often. Pulled off a few belting saves in the CL final when it mattered to his credit.

33.) 04 Jul 2023
04 Jul 2023 17:50:41
I don’t think Allison or Ederson make the top 2 tbh. It’s only for the fact that they are in top teams with relatively settled world class defenders in front of them that people rate them. If I had to choose between the two I’d go for Ederson based on the fact he looks like a Bond villain and Allison has a girls name.

34.) 04 Jul 2023

Mannigan is the one who can do it all.

Onana will drop a bollock or two but I guess the expectation is he out performs in other ways to compensate.

Neuer on a 2 year deal would be my best for now.

Costa isn’t ready.
