I've said it before but I don't think that his problem is down to age/experience, his judgement seems okay, but he just doesn't have the physical presence to get through crowds. Is that likely to change? That's the first thing that I would have been trying to help him develop if I was at United as a fitness coach. If he remains that slender then he's going to struggle, meanwhile you have to consider whether an increase in mass would effect his agility. It's not that simple a problem to fix.
The goals that he has been responsible for (at least partly) are the ones where he parries the ball straight back out and the others where he fails to intercept/deal with crosses. I can accept that he's a fantastic shot stopper but his handling lets him down at times, as does his positioning. There probably isn't a keeper with better reflexes in the league but unfortunately for him it's not all about that.
I can only answer that by the following picture
I think he needs to be given that opportunity.
Alexhumpf - it wasn't meant as a wind up at all. I read in the past couple of days that Wenger turned down the option of a young promising keeper as he didn't want to undermine Scez. Good man management

Arsenal turned down swap Mannone-Stekelenburg cause expressively Wenger didn't want such a competitor for Szczesny, according to Sky Italy
I thought it was someone shitter than Stekelenburg tbf...
