Take at look at this link here.
You gotta feel for the poor bastard aint ya?
I've heard a rumour this fellow is on his way to Arsenal in January.
A big talking point is who will be between the sticks against Chelsea this Sunday.
I can't see Arsene Wenger throwing Wojciech Szczesny in goal despite the young Polski claiming he is the best goalie in the history of the universe.
Szczesny is like the Nicklas Bendtner of the goalkeeping world. He believes he is better than what he is.
Whilst this self-confidence is admirable it can also be seen as delusional. Declaring he is better than Iker Casillas and Gianluigi Buffon put together is an amazing claim.
And while I made the last sentence up I have no doubt that he actually believes it.
I like a bit of self confidence in a keeper though. The best all have that arrogance and from I've seen of Wojciech (and heard about him, a pal of mine plays for Brentford) he has what it takes to go all the way.
I just feel the Chelsea game would be too much for him.
I wish he could lend a bit of that confidence to Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski. It has to be said though that Fabianski is probably feeling the most confident he has ever been in an Arsenal shirt.
Surely Lukasz is number one choice for Sunday?
I seriously think that Manuel could run off the pitch like the keeper does in the link above if he made another serious mistake in a match. Especially in a game as high profile as this one.
Almunia is a confidence keeper and his must be at an all-time low. There is no way (in my opinion) he is injured at the moment. In his frame of mind the last place he wants to be is in between the goal-posts.
I feel for Almunia. It was clear that Arsene Wenger wanted a new keeper over the summer and truth be told he should have got one.
By failing to succeed all Wenger has done has undermine the Spaniard. It was only a matter of time before he fucked up and when he did it is clear to see the effects of him.
He is gone. Devastated, and I wonder how much more we will see from this season. Seriously. I reckon that is it.
I asked for support for Manuel at the beginning of the season, well now we just need to support whoever is in goal.
Perhaps we could play monkey-rush?
Keep it Goonerish...........
