First of all Arsenal fans, I do not really see the problem with our Poland international keeper Wojciech Szczesny smoking a cigarette occasionally, especially if he is on a holiday from his club and country as he is at the minute. Szczesny is a keeper after all so it is not as if he needs to be as super fit as an outfield player.
I also think that the media make too much of all this role model stuff and are really just being so sanctimonious to sell a few extra copies of whatever paper they are working for. But having said that, you would think that Shezzer would have learned his lesson after his crafty ciggy in the Southampton dressing rooms on new years day appears to have cost him the starting shirt for Arsenal.
So the report in The Sun today with pictures of the 25-year old puffing on a fag is the last thing Szczesny needed. He is already second choice with the Gunners and there are a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours claiming that Arsene Wenger is planning to sign a quality stopper this summer, despite a good performance in the FA cup final at Wembley.
Szczesny spoke after the final about not wanting to leave the club he has been with for nine years but he might not have a great deal of choice in the matter. Has this latest snap sent Shezzer´s Arsenal career up in smoke?
