When Manuel Almunia joined Arsenal in 2004, he was another relative unknown on these shores, having only really carved out the career of a journeyman for himself in Spain, being part of seven different clubs. Few predicted that he would stick around with Arsenal for much longer than a year or two, and a number of high-profile blunders will not have helped raise him in the esteem of the fans....
The Polish international enjoyed his best Arsenal campaign in 2013/14 keeping 16 clean sheets – a personal record – whilst being awarded the Premier League's Golden Glove award alongside Chelsea's Petr Cech. A product of Arsenal's youth academy, the former Brentford loanee has come on leaps and bounds and is distinguished as being the joker of the Gunners' dressing room.
Polish international goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has signed for Arsenal from Legia Warsaw on a long term contract for an undisclosed fee.
Signed from Atalanta in July 2005, the Italian has worked his way through the ranks and began the current campaign as the third-choice keeper behind Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski. Last season he was on the bench for a handful of first-team games but never tasted the action.
