Fabianski & Szczesny

There were rumours about our sub-standard goalkeeping coaching floating around for years. This translated snippet from a recent interview with Fabianski and Szczesny really sums up what a state we were in under Wenger.

Wisniowski (interviewer): With Gerry, it was a typical English locker room?
Fabianski & Szczesny: No, not really.

Szczesny: Let me give you an example of a thing when you laugh at first, but then you’re like I’m playing for Arsenal, is this for real? Before the match with Chelsea I hear: Watch out. When Hazard takes his penalties, he will shoot at the opposite side of where you will dive.

Fabianski & Wisniowski: (Laugh)

Szczesny: And that’s funny, but then you’re like did he really just said that?

Fabianski: Mentioning penalty analysis he used to said (Gerry): Listen, he shoots that side or that side, but best go with your feeling. So, he shoots here and there, but do whatever you want more or less.

Szczesny: One time we had a goalie debriefing out of nowhere.

Fabianski: And it was a video debriefing, we have never done video before.

Szczesny: Not knowing what it will be about we’re going right? And it’s a 4-5 minute video of goals that I let past me, but could have done better.

Fabianski: It’s only Szczesny goals though!

Fabianski & Szczesny: They were only Szczesny’s. But there was us and Vito (Mannone) and Emi (Martinez). Any video of us maybe?

Szczesny: So, were watching, but we don’t know what’s going on. It’s just showing errors, he is not explaining anything. So the video ends and Gerry says: See, you’re not perfect. And that was it. We’re all looking at each other like ‘what’?

Indeed the mess will take a long time to sort it was obvious to anyone with a brain that the coaching had been a shambles for years. I just hope Unai gets the time required to sort it.

Under new managment
