Poor old Manuel Almunia really looks like he has had enough doesn't he?
He looks about as interested in playing for Arsenal as Elton John would be in a threesome with Megan Fox and Cheryl Cole and about as nervous as a virgin in the same situation.
To be fair who could blame him?
The Spaniard has never been a favourite with Gooners but even the most battle-hardened Almunia hater would admit that he was badly treated by Arsenal last summer.
Essentially he was hung out to dry, like my delicates, by a very public Arsenal chase for Fulham 'keeper Mark Schwarzer.
How Wenger could ever have expected Almunia to be at his best (no matter how bad that is) after being undermined like this I will never know.
Manuel has been like a dead-man walking ever since. I've seen more life in a tramps vest.
Arsene wanted a new number one and that was more obvious than Peter Crouch at a midget convention. He should have let Almunia go then.
Instead we have a keeper licking his wounds, someone who doesn't want to be here.
Despite Gooners reservations over him, he didn't need deserve this treatment because by all accounts Manuel Almunia is a nice guy.
He should have been allowed a dignified exit.
Keep It Goonerish..............
