Video – What Arsenal fans can expect from Mat Ryan (Best Brighton saves)

The big Australian international keeper Mat Ryan has joined Arsenal today on loan from Brighton, and he is far from being a beginner as you will see when you watch this video.

He has been at the Seagulls for four years and has faced a lot of shots from Premier League strikers so we know that he is not a rookie reserve from French Ligue 2!

In fact Ryan has made 121 appearances for Brighton and played in 59 international matches with Australia, and at 28 he could have many more years at the top of his game. Maybe he just needs a new challenge?

Have a look at the video and see what you think of his skills…

      His right arm must be made of steel!!!
      Some great saves and he seems full of confidence.
      Makes me wonder why we didn’t go for him in the first place?!

      1. Lenohappy says:

        Ken1945 I will tell you why, because the club like to gamble, how can you sell a world class goalkeeper like Martinez and replace him with a second keeper from french second division 🙄🙄.

          It rivals the Kim Kallstrom loan in terms of complete randomness lol. At least Kallstrom scored a pen on our way to FA Cup glory. Runnarrson likely wont appear for us again and was a permanent signing. What was Arsenal thinking with this one? Very strange move indeed.

          Lenohappy, but this has always been the case it seems – selling our top players and having to look for undiscovered talent (Anelka?), our youth players, or simply having to delve in the next level.

    Short videos are no measure but I like him, sharp reflexes, agility, strength, positioning, and knows how to keep an eye on the ball rather than throwing himself and hoping for the best. He needs to improve the direction of punching the ball when it is too difficult to hold.
    I wonder why brighton kept him on bench.

    1. Lenohappy says:

      Ba Elkhirsawy because at the beginning of the season they were losing matches and the coach decided to drop some senior players. Ryan is the best thing that happened to Brighton in the last 4 years maybe with the exception of Lamptey.

  3. I says:

    He seems to know how to save against Leicester, Everton, Chelsea and Wolves especially. We might use him in these games haha

  4. Lenohappy says:

    I love his reflex and the way he saves shot and make himself big remind me of Manuel Neur

    1. Sydney says:

      He seems to be a good goal keeper, I was always worried what will happen should Leno get injured
