This is exactly the kind of headache that Arsene Wenger would like to have in every position as he now has to decide whether to keep Wojciech Szczesny in between the sticks now that his compatriot Lukasz Fabianski is fit enough to be reinstated in the Arsenal starting XI.
Many Arsenal fans wanted Lukasz Fabianski to be sold last summer after his many moans about being left on the bench behind Wojciech Szczesny, but since being given the first team jersey the Gunners have registered five wins in a row and he has rarely put a foot wrong.
Goalkeeping spot? It’s Up For Grabs NOW! by AH
The last two games have seen one Polish international goalkeeper take over from another, as Lukasz Fabianski has reintroduced himself into what looks like a rejuvenated Arsenal team. Just like his Arsenal career his performances are inconsistent and this seems to be one of his main flaws, however this could be the time he needs to step up for the team as we push to regain a top 4 spot and Champions League football for another consecutive season.
The Reina Rumour Returns by AH
The whispers that Arsenal are looking to sign Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has plagued the Arsenal transfer rumour mil for the last two weeks and they always say there’s no smoke without fire. There may be some truth in this story, as I believe Arsenal is looking to sign a new goalkeeper despite already having 5 goalkeepers in the first team squad.
The jury is still out on whether Vito Mannone is accomplished enough to be Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper, and it seems that he is about to be usurped by the returning Wojciech Szczesny very shortly.
Is Mannone good enough to remain Arsenal’s first choice keeper the entire season? by TS
Vito Mannone through hook and crook has maintained his position as first choice keeper for Arsenal. Obviously, injury to Szczesny and Fabianski has helped that process but there’s no denying that the Italian keeper has been an able replacement in goal. Mannone has credited his run in the first team due to the hard work he has put into his game.
The Polish goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is training with his fellow Arsenal team-mate and countryman Wojciech Szczesny and he is getting fit and ready to take over from Szczesny at some point this season.
The Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesnt has proved many times this season that he is a committed Arsenal fan as well as being a valued member of Arsene Wenger’s squad, but he is humble enough to realise that his place as Arsenal’s Number One is still not etched in stone, and once he has played 500 games for the first team (which will take him about ten years) will he be happy to say he is now established!
