Hello, JG here, time for another review, this time, SIF Handanovic. First of all, this is the squad I used him in: http://www.futhead.com/fifa/squads/10747212/
Second of all, general impressions: Obviously his on-card stats seem ridiculously good. And after just a few games, your immediate impression is, that they are. I've only played 20 or so games with him (13 with current version, but had a different 1 before), but already, I feelI can, with some certainty, call him the best keeper I've used so far. His on-card stats do not lie, and if they do, only in a positive way. Anyways, the individual stats:
Diving - Well, personally, he doesn't dive that much for me. Usually, his positioning makes it so that it isn't even neccesary. But when he does, 89 is about right. He reaches the shots you might not immediately expect him to, and he keeps them out. So that's good.
Handling - Phenomenal. This man can catch anything you put at him. I'm fairly certain, if he wanted to, he could even catch a Juninho free kick. Haven't tried it yet though. Only problem seems to be, that he has some sort of complex with catching corners. He never seems to catch them when I send him into them, only box them away, which is rather annoying. Although I could just leave him on the line, he'd save them anyways.
Kicking - It's kicking. Not much to say. Personally, I tend to pass from my keeper instead of kick it, but the few times I have done it, it did fly rather far. So 80 is probably about right.
Reflexes - This is madness... Madness? THIS IS. SAMIR!!!! No, seriously, this is his best trait. 89? Try 99. No, I'm serious, this is what makes him the best keeper I've used. He saves the usaveable, he makes triple saves like they're nothing. Normally, keepers in UT13 are unconsistent and easy to get past, especially the near post. Combined with his positioning, this never happens for SIF Handanovic. Overall, pay the 50K just for this stat. You won't regret it.
Speed - Not a lot to say really. It's not as much as others, like Begovic, but it's most definitly enough.
Positioning - The 2nd stat which you would pay 50K alone just to have. He NEVER gets beaten by those pesky near post power shots. Combined with his 89 reflexes, he'll keep them out. Also rarely gets beaten by long shots, due to this, and again diving and/or reflexes.
Value for money - 10/10. I gave 45K for him. I'd gladly pay 200K, if not more. As mentioned before, he's without a doubt the best keeper I've ever used in UT13. I can't say if keepers like MOTM Neuer, TOTY Casillas, TOTS Buffon etc. are better, because I haven't tried them. But they'd have to be seriously something to beat this guy, both in ability and value.
