    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    I'm tempted to agree but our set pieces will suffer I think.

    If this guy was 2-3 inches taller he’d probably be world class but he just can’t be our number 1 because of how bad he is at corners/set pieces.

    Neither of our keepers inspire me with confidence but I rather Ospina starts ahead of Cech.

    Sad, that he isn't good on crosses. Anyway he could be a decent keeper, he is a bit to small.

    Navas is just 2cms higher, but he looks much better in general.

    We still don't have a #1 keeper

    He is a pretty decent goalkeeper and he again showed that today. Made some excellent saves and he couldn’t do much about that Milan goal.

    He is slated just because of his height but let us not forget that Casillas wasn’t exactly a giant either!

    Any italians speakers in here? @yousifpersie were the milan really singing Ospina's name?

    It was a great tune btw.

    I think people were hearing Ospina when in fact they were saying Milan or AC Milan.

    I felt he was decently off his line a bit and could've been better positioned for that strike, it's not like that ball was hit with a burst of pace.

    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    I don't know. On the Tele it looked like a rocket.

    No! :lol:

    Ac Milan fans were all singing ‘oooooh ac milan’.

    However tune was really catchy and fits ‘ooooooh Ospina’ perfectly though so the entire emirates joined in/highjacked it on the chorus.

    Genuinely hilarious, one of the funniest things I’ve ever witnessed at the Emirates.

    Some idiots here are making him part of the blame “chain” that led to the away goal.

    He is the least culpable guy, he saved Griezmann’s first shot but unfortunately it rebounded to the attacker who then scored.

    Even the best GKs would expect their most experienced CB to not screw up when the CB has got himself between the attacker and the ball.

    This guy is underrated here because of his height/stature. I’d make him the No. 1 from next season and sell Cech. Macey becomes the backup.

    None of them should be first choice next season really.

    Yeah did absolutely nothing wrong for their goal and had a good game.

    Definitely not sold on him as our number 1 long term but should be ahead of Cech in the pecking order now.

    He is a good keeper and a great back up. Don't think he is happy as the number two as he could easily be a starter at a different team and Excell in a different league as well, look at Paulista, Le Coq and Nzonzi. Different beasts in a different league.

    I would love to keep him here, his antics are too funny. OhhhhhhhSpina!
