I know all Arsenal fans are excited about the arrival of Petr Cech, but as Bob pointed out earlier, David Ospina must be the unluckiest Arsenal player ever.
But then again it is only fair that the Colombian moves to get first team football as he is far too good to be a unplayed backup, whereas Wojciech Szczesny will probably be happy to spend his whole career on the Arsenal bench, so he can sneak into the showers for a fag when Wenger’s not looking! And as I pointed out earlier, the Pole will help Arsenal in the quota for home grown players whereas Ospina simply has to go.
The best-performing Premier League keeper since Christmas now has to face a possible future in the madhouse of the Turkish SuperLiga, as Ospina confirmed himself today. He was quoted as saying: “They [Fenerbahce] are dealing with my agent.
“At the moment the only thoughts I have are for Colombia. I will not betray my team.”
I am at a loss to understand why there are no top teams chasing Ospina after his performances this year. It is totally baffling that he should be reduced to considering Fenerbahce, and another thing I can’t fathom is why John Terry thinks that Cech would gain Arsenal 12-15 points a season. Has anyone worked out exactly how many points Arsenal LOST with Ospina playing? I bet we didn’t lose 15 points IN TOTAL in his 18 League games last season. Yes I agree Cech is 15 points better than Szczesny, but is he really that much better than Ospina?
