Is Chezney the Number 1 and Only?
October 28, 2010
I don’t think last night’s performance came as a bolt out of the blue to many gooners who had already seen our giant Polish keeper play before, but it certainly did encourage a school of thought that asked who was the Number One Pole?
If Fabianski keeps up with his performances of the last few weeks, then we shall see a battle royal.
The football world today is awash today with talk of our man Szczensy, most are suggesting he should be installed immediately as our first choice keeper.
I see steady on, the lad is certainly good enough, I think you will have read my high praise and lofty future prediction for the lad in previous posts, his bursting onto the scene is nothing new here, but I still think we need to persist for Fab1 for now.
Let Chezney win the Carling Cup as our keeper.
Fab1 may not have the size and stature of Chezney, but he can challenge on the reflex front, and the number one skill any top-level goalie needs is sharp reflexes…. otherwise they are akin to a painter with a screwdriver!
The slug between the Poles, who are VERY good friends off the pitch, is as I suggested a few weeks back, a good thing, they will drive and encourage each other on.
Remember the sniping behind Almunia’s back Lehman used to do?
That won’t be happening with these two, who have known each other for some years previous to linking up at Arsenal.
On a quick final note… did I hear somebody say we need a new keeper in the January transfer window?
