Best scenario all round is if JP gets his confidence back.
Fresh start after the break. He's still the best keeper at the club we have to get behind him.
Ask yourself. "What would Lewis Hamilton say?"

He might be here to be dropped in favour of Pickford.

I think a lot of fans underestimate how hard it is to sign decent back up when youíre a club in our position, and that a reality check is probably in order.

Not a single one of these saves on his highlight reel was anything special. They were all decent, bread and butter saves I would expect any professional to make.

But maybe that's him? He does all the basics very well without having anything spectacular in his locker that would make him a top level keeper.

Picture that with a Kodak
Or, better yet, go to Times Square
Take a picture of me with a Kodak
Took my life from negative to positive
I just want y'all to know that
Simply simply lovely

Watched it until the third save where he did a triple save and decided this post made no sense what so ever.

I mean maybe every save after that is standard, but at least give some credit to that one, it's excellent!

Thereís some very good saves in there - third one stood out in particular. Obviously we are only seeing the positives in this but a few things stand out for me here. 1) his positioning/movement seems to be better than Pickfordís and 2) He is a big physical presence in the box.

I know it's highlights chosen to show him in a good light but he got down well to a lot of low shots for a man of 6'5". Most of his parrys went wide of the goal and he looked quite agile.
No footage of corners or crosses though and in the PL he'll face plenty of them.

Also let's not judge a player on YouTube... Judge him on if / when he plays for us, because really none of us know if he'll be great, awful or somewhere in between.  He might not even play a single minute for us, but if he does I'm not writing him off (or expecting high quality performances) based on a YouTube video.

Gets mentioned here as a big part of Cagliari's recent success https://statsbomb.com/2019/11/can-cagliari-turn-a-hot-start-into-a-historic-season/

In addition to their battering ram, Cagliari also lost Alessio Cragno to injury, the goalkeeper who in their last edition of Serie A saved the most goals, compared to the average keeper (9.93 goals saved above average). In his place came Robin Olsen, ill-treated goalkeeper of AS Roma, currently a key performer in the success of Maran's team.

Cagliari are indeed overperforming, having conceded just 9 non-penalty goals from 13.18 xG, a feat accomplished largely thanks to their Swedish keeper. Olsen has saved 85% of the shots he has faced, 14% more shots than the average keeper (the associated expected save percentage is just 71%). He also has the highest GSAA,, 6.68, in Serie A. In other words, he's preventing 0.56 goals more than the average keeper every game he plays, but he wonít necessarily keep this form for the entire season.

In regards to claiming crosses etc....stats profiles of him show that he is one of the least aggressive claimers of the ball in europes 5 big leagues. 9/10 he chooses to stay on his line than come out and claim a cross :

I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Well at least the defence will know what he's going to do on corners and just worry about defending the corner and not about whatever Pickford is going to do. Assuming he actually plays that is.

Save stats look good but would be curious to see how Cagliari defend and what kind of chances they are

Nicky Bandini says she doesn't expect him to push Pickford that hard.
