Should Arsenal worry after Ospina´s DOUBLE disaster?

I think that just about every Arsenal fan is in agreement about the priority for the club this season, and our manager Arsene Wenger has even said the same thing when talking about us being in the Europa League instead of the usual Champions League competition.

So with the English Premier League being far and away the most important of the four things the Gunners will compete, we perhaps only need to be worried if the regular first choice keeper Petr Cech picks up an injury or is ruled out for some disciplinary reason.

That could well happen though, as Cech played just 35 of the 38 EPL games for Arsenal last season and one fewer than that the season before. On these occasions Arsenal want the second choice to be as good as possible and having a regular international keeper like David Ospina as back up should be good enough, except for those mistakes.

Ospina has put in some fine performances for club and country but there have been some high profile and costly slips along the way, such as in our Champions League game at home to Olympiacos. Even worse came for the keeper this week though, as The Mirror reports.

Ospina is being held responsible for his national team´s loss to Paraguay as two late errors saw Colombia beaten after leading 1-0 with just minutes to go. Those blunders from the Arsenal number 2 look to have cost the Colombians a place at the World Cup next summer and if that turns out to be the case then Ospina will be feeling pretty awful.

For Arsenal fans, though, it could be a real concern if anything happens to Cech. Time for Wenger to look for another reserve keeper or use one of the young Gunners from the academy?



    1. Martinez should be our no2.. should have sold Ospina.. no other team has two no1’s… ie splitting roles.. one for league and one for cups.. if they wanted to do that surely Martinez would have benefited from olayong in europa league more than Ospina.. plus he is much taller and comes from crosses..

    1. Why should Ospina be any different from the rest of the squad?

      I think every player Arsenal has been derided, and should be benched, sold or loaned out as their not good enough for the squad, that’s according to the people on this sight of course.

  1. Personally I think Ospina is gradually fading away just like Joe hart and I think Arsene Wenger was right to replace him with world class Peter cech
