Sad that both Polish keepers should have stayed.

If you say something long enough it will eventually be come true



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Yes I think we all know how Ramsey turned out. He's f ucking shite!

Arsenal fans who don't overreact over 1 game know that!

As for Cech he's been shite since he got here, I was saying he was past it years before he joined us as well.

Cech's the best and the most reliable keeper we've had since Lehmann. I realise that isn't exactly a ringing endorsement, but true nevertheless.

He's Almunia level now but as least Almunia was agile and could save a pen!

Agreed and if Ospina had let that in you'd have blamed the high line with no press on the ball. What about the save he made from Ayew?

Since Lehmann, there are two attributes that Cech has and none of our previous goalies have:
1 - Commanding in the box.
2 - Positional awareness such that he does not need to perform spectacular dive to make a save but making a save as if the ball is attracted to him.

Positional awareness - that is why even when he lost a bit of his agility, he is still a top goalie.

LMFAO, do people watch us blindfolded? Cech is a goal line keeper!!

Also, if he's positional sense is so good while does he get beat at his near post and in the middle of his goal so much?

The guy is past it and has been been for a long time.

Lets not talk about the worst gk probably to have played for us for that long. His dives were always late and at times looked for the camera. In one v one situation he would never come out even when it was needed. Kevin phillips headed home to end the title campaign that year and alumnias attempt was woeful.
Cech is old and no where near his best, but he's the still the best we have had since mad jens and that one season from woj.
Not to mention several free kicks that almunia let in

Vito Mannone

Pound for pound Vito Mannone is the best goalie we've had at Arsenal Since Jens Lehmann

In a way yes. He did help us when he gifted sanchez that goal. Besides anyone that hasn't played a top club for over a year doesn't count imho. Manone played well for 10 games and then flapped on a lot of crosses. Ospina would always save and hit the ball in front of him during the wc and then go ahead and make the double save.
A good goalie would push it sideways.
Woj during his udinese miracle season was a beast inspite of a finger injury in the entire second half of the season. Shame he started playing keep ball in his own half and kicking and releasing too quickly the very next season.
Its a bit like coquelin trying to play cross fields balls ending up in stands as soon as elneny was signed

Gs for christ sakes give it a rest.
Every bloody game you post this crap.

I think most realise we need a keeper.
But at the moment we have to rely on Cech.
Who is clearly the best keeper we have at this time.

Yea it's irrational to comment on a GK who makes mistake after mistake.

Am still waiting for the "15 points he's going to win us!"

People on here are trying to hide the reality because they can't stand me being right again,pathetic!

Emi Martinez looked very good every time he played for us - pity we sent him out on loan. I definitely think Cech is deteriorating slowly and Ospina was never good enough.

Where's Adama Traore at the moment mate? Is he still the player we need?

After seeing the goal, I wouldn't put it down as a blooper. Question mark for sure, not a unanimous, Almunia-type f*ck up.

To be fair to GS, Cech is average.

A 6/10 keeper at best. He will save the standard shots but nothing extra-ordinary and he does f*ck up too.

Ospina isn't better though.

We need a new keeper.

Hahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahhahahah oh my god. Please re-read why you just said.

So he has a 97% claim rate, has the third most clean sheets in three years......but because he hasn't saved a penalty you go no nyour daily rampage.

Honestly I can't do anything but laugh.

I don't see why saving or not saving penalties is important. When have you ever expected a goalkeeper to save a penalty? The pressure is on the taker, not the keeper because it's far easier to score than it is to save them.

Anyways, the fact that he has only managed one less clean sheet than Lloris since 2015 is really quite impressive. Tottenham's defence has been brilliant and relatively steady in that time. Ours hasn't been brilliant or steady. Cech has probably had a different combination of defenders ahead of him than any other goalkeeper in the division.

The best goalkeepers have always been good penalty savers; They've got a presence that put the fear of god in to the taker.

Cech is a goalkeeper who's not going to win you a game, but he will lose you a game.

Give me the stats against the top 6, not against some irrelevant teams, then we'll talk!

I don't need to look at the stats of Arsenal getting stuffed 5 something by Liverpool 6 something by etc and so on to know Cech's clean sheet record against teams which are in the top 5 / top 6 of the Premier League is probably the worst ever for a gk at Arsenal in living memory.

Cech wasn't at Arsenal when Liverpool beat us 5-1 or Chelsea 6-0, the results I assume you're referring to, so it probably is worth looking at the stats - and lineups - pal.

Premier League Sunday 27 Aug 2017

Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

33 Cech
16 Holding
06 Koscielny
18 Monreal
15 Oxlade-Chamberlain
08 Ramsey
29 Xhaka
24 Bellerín
11 Özil
07 Sánchez
23 Welbeck

Actually The 6 I was thinking of is the 6 points handed to chelsea with none other than no 33 from Chelsea in goal - 2016/2017 Head to Head 1:5 Aggregate, Felt like 6-0.

Hurellio Gomes and Rob Green were good at saving penalties.
