Can Szczesny save his Arsenal career in THREE games?

When I say three games I am assuming first of all that Arsene Wenger starts with Wojciech Szczesny in his Arsenal team to play Monaco away next Tuesday and in the FA cup semi-final and final, if we get there. And that will probably be it for the Poland international, unless David Ospina suffers an injury or forgets how to keep goal before the end of the season.

Shezzer has been a Gunner since he was 16-years old and four years later he was our first choice. But his career has been dotted with dips in form, lapses in focus and costly errors, so he has not become the dominant number one that he was hoping for. Despite saying that he would like to spend his whole career at Arsenal, I don´t think he meant as the back up so I would not be surprised to see him leave if he cannot change Wenger´s mind before the end of the season.

His latest chance was against Man United on Monday and while he made some good saves and stopped four of the five on target and could not be blamed for the goal, Szczesny did flap at that cross and gave possession away needlessly at times. He is going to have to do better than that to oust Ospina. A fantastic game in Monaco would go a long way to getting his place back, especially if it helps Arsenal make a miracle comeback, but he is running out of time and games.

Do you think Szczesny has lost the top spot for good?

    Maureen and his dancers have been disturbed out of europe in a silky mafian fashion. I’m just glad that even without zlatan they couldn’t win on home soil, lol

    I don’t think he will play on Tuesday. His only chance will be the FA cup, unless Ospinaaaa sufers an injury.

      Yup true…..friend…

      I don’t see Szczesny at Arsenal in the upcoming years…just because of his attitude….. you have to be brave, calm, composed, getting involved in everything in front of goal but not off the pitch….. He was all over during ManU game…. I hope he proves me wrong….but I think if Cech is available then go for him we need Ospina and Cech to be there if we are going to challenge for PL…..

    he can leave if he wants….which he will as he has been Kicked out of the Polish National team……

    we can always go for Cech, Casillas or Illoris….which we should

    Why are the Gooners bothering themselves over an issue that does’t concern us? What business have we to do with Chelsea getting knocked out by PSG? Had Chelsea played agaist us – Arsenal it would have been a different thing. We saw all that happened yesterday at the Bridge. But that is Chelsea affair not that of Arsenal. We may discuss the outcome of that game within ourselves – the Gooners. But not as far as to be mocking them publicly on justarsenal.com website. I like Szczesny very much as the Gunners’ goalkeeper. I think the problem that mitigated against him was his bad attitude. And I believe he has retracted his bad steps as he is now in good terms with d boss. I love to be seeing him in more starts for Arsenal again. Did Ospina commit any treason against Arsenal cause as he showered praises on Ramdel Falcao ahead of the Gunners FA Cup game with the Red Devils at Old Trafford? Did the boss drop Ospina from his 18 man squad because of the treason? Would Ospina hv conceded to Falcao had he started?

    OFF TOPIC:
    anyone seen fabregas??

    The Premier League’s leader in
    assists was unable to help
    Chelsea beat PSG in their
    Champions League clash.
    An extra-time header from
    Brazilian international Thiago
    Silva sent Chelsea out on away
    goals, leaving big questions
    about Jose Mourinho’s side.
    Was their easy ride in the
    Premier League to blame for a
    lack of intensity and
    complacency at home to the
    French champions, or did the
    players simply show they are
    not as good as everybody
    thought?
    A player who now does have
    questions to answer is Spanish
    international midfielder Cesc
    Fabregas.
    The star was signed from
    Barcelona in the summer in a
    surprise transfer move, and has
    racked up 15 assists in the
    Premier League alone.
    Yet against PSG he was
    ineffective, creating just one
    chance and failing to attempt a
    single shot on goal.
    Arsenal were the side to pass up
    on signing their former club
    captain in the summer, much to
    the surprise of their fans, a
    decision which looked even
    worse when he signed for rivals
    Chelsea.
    article continues below
    He looks set to finish the season
    with a Premier League winners
    medal, but the way he ‘went
    missing’ against PSG did not go
    unnoticed by fans of the
    Gunners.
    Fabregas was unable to lead
    Arsenal to any silverware during
    his captaincy at the club, failing
    to prove if he had the
    temperament to lift his side
    over the threshold in the big
    games. Chelsea’s failure to win
    against PSG showed any
    concerns over his mentality are
    not just created out nothing, but
    there could be a real concern
    there.
    Cesc will need a strong end to
    the season to prove his
    doubters wrong, with his form
    dipping considerably in recent
    weeks. Here is how fans of his
    former side Arsenal reacted to
    his performance…
    Fabregas again went
    missing in a crucial games
    days after Ozil put in a
    sensational display against
    United at OT. #Afc #cfc

    Police grow increasingly
    concerned about the
    whereabouts of Arsenal
    reject Fabregas. Call Pest
    Control on 0800 109 1289 if
    you see the rat.

    I think Fabregas is eligible to
    play for Arsenal against
    Monaco, he hasn’t played a
    minute of Champions
    League football this season
    has he?

    wanted Fabregas back at
    Arsenal smh

    Once again, #Chelsea fans
    learn what #Arsenal fans
    already knew: The bigger
    the game, the smaller Cesc
    Fabregas will play. Invisible
    today

    Cesc Fabregas has brought
    his bottling mentality from
    Arsenal to Barcelona and
    now to Chelsea. Unreal.
