Almunia certainly ruined his reputation and let go of the faith that Arsenal fans had in him with his horrific decision making leading up to West Brom’s second goal last Saturday….
…..And Arsene Wenger will now be given the tough task of picking his goalkeeper until Sczesny is declared fit to play football again, after injuring his fingers in their 3-1 defeat to Barcelona in their Champions League 2nd leg encounter. The (only) other goalkeeper Arsenal have is the 41 year old Jens Lehman, and even Wenger admittedly agreed that he wasn’t match fit, in fact far of it.
So now Arsenal are waiting on Sczesny’s recovery and his return should come at the perfect timing, with the International break this week giving him extra time. He seems set to return in the vital clash in May,….. with Manchester United! Arsenal have missed Sczesny quite badly and it is evident in their performances.
Nine straight victories for the London-based club will hand them the title (although incredibly difficult), having an extra game in hand over the current leaders Manchester United. Manchester United, on the other hand are struggling with their own defensive issues, with Ferdinand constantly out together with defensive hard man Nemanja Vidic.
