Since Jens Lehmanns (first) departure from us the position of goalkeeper at Arsenal has been a source of amusement for supporters of other clubs.
I, like many other Gooners, didn't find it funny.
In fact I'd rather have stuck pins in my eyes and pull out the hairs from my eyebrows one-by-one with chopsticks made of wasps than laugh along.
It was a liberty. And a liberty of the highest order.
Finally now though we can laugh back at the jokers. We no longer have a bad Eminem look-alike Spanish waiter between the sticks.
No we don't.
We have a monster. A tall confident beast of a man who may one day become one of the best 'keepers in the world.
And he doesn't have Barca DNA. I hope.
Wojciech Szczęsny will not become a figure of fun like the poor unfortunate Manuel Almunia did.
Like the Great Wall of China he is destined for greatness.
And now, for the first time in ages, we can laugh at others.
Finally Arsenal have a better 'keeper than Manchester United. And one that didn't cost £18m either.
I have no doubt that David De Gea will become one of the best goalies in the world eventually too.
But I know who I would rather have as my number one right now. And it aint the Spaniard.
De Gea weighs about as much one of Szczęsny's legs and I hope that opposition sides notice this.
Arsenal 'keepers have been bullied mercilessly since Lehmann left the club. I'm sure the United keeper can be too.
Wojciech will not be bullied. He is too big and nuttier than peanut butter.
Ability-wise I think our young keeper is better too. Much better.
It's nice to know that we are stronger in such a key part of the field. And I don't mean that just because Wojciech would eat De Gea for breakfast.
At last we have a man of genuine class between the posts.
I have to admit, at one time, I thought Almunia was as good as the elite. I was wrong and hold my hands up to that.
But I'm sure everyone would agree with on this.
Keep It Goonerish.......
