Wikipedia says Łukasz Fabiański (pronounced Woo-kash Fab-yañ-ski)
There is no way this is true. With Dein gone who do we have to do the negotiations in a smart way. Also legia warsaw would be foolish to do the deal this early. Waiting for the transfer window to open and attracting more bidders is what they should be doing to maximize the fee.
Damn, his name sounds like a whip :shock:
A couple of me polish mates seen him play, they say he's good. I havent seen him play, so I can't make a definite comparison between him and Gordon. Video compilations seemed to make him a class shot stopper, but can we really trust on JUST that?
Arsène Knows, - So I trust him on this one.
chelsea had 2 keepers injured. so if that happen to us. it will be poom playing, not butcher. and for that matter what butcher? won't it be that scjnesy or something that polisk keeper
I'd be delighted if we tied this signing up early on. Leaves the rest of the summer, firstly for wenger to pick the new DofF, and for that man to get us the other player(s) we need.
... and what about that Italian youngster we got from Atalanta? Forgot his name but from what I see, he seems doomed like Lupoli.
Thats my point, I was saying what may have happened if we didnt have Poom.
And no, Szczesny has only played 1 reserve league game and 9 academy league games. Butcher has been the main U18 keeper while Mannone and Poom have been the main reserve league keepers.
Not many keepers play 1st team football under 20, (not including Buffon).
i like his hight to be honest and a good shot stopper
thats what we are missing ..Most of the goals we conced are shots where Mad Jens seems weak
pooms going to extend his contract and stay here till he retires...so you can say hes a player/coach, just more of a back up servant
extra depth in the keeper department
Lehmanns problem has always been crosses or balls in the air and his petulant behaviour in the box that he loses focus over, he was a pretty quality shot stopper so that hasn't really been our problem.
Here is another video
Peter cech Vs Łukasz Fabiański
A Polish bloke I know at work said he was rubbish.
But then again I trust Wenger.
I still a club of our status should be signing a player of established quality. Jens was a fairly well known keeper when he came to us and it took him 18 months to mature...as a goalkeeper :wink:
In other words, I don't want to have the future 'best goalie in the world' I want the current one, or at least someone who has already proved themself. After all, goalkeeper is a position where you can't really make mistakes, you need someone you can rely on.
he WAS a pretty quality shot stopper but this season his standard has dropped quite alot. he has let in quite a number of long shots that a young and agile shot stopper would have saved.
I suppose this is the point of bringing him in now whilst Jens is still there. Wenger can see him in training, play him in the Carling and FA Cup and see how he takes it. If he flops we still have an established number 1. He does seem talented, but I dont think Im alone in saying Id have preferred a more established keeper. Interesting that Arsène has gone for a comparitive youngster as well. 22 for a keeper is roughly the equivalent of being about 18 for an outfield player.
Well tbh, i think his handling looks poor, but he could improve. He certainly doesn't look 190cm. I think signing Gordon for 4-5mil instead of this guy for 2-3mil would be better.
Kmiecik is a giant, so if you're trying to get a read on his height based on that coming together with Kmiecik then you'd be mistaken.
I don't think he could have done much about the shots he has conceded even from distance and he has still made some qulity saves like at United for example. What he has started doing again is flapping at balls, coming for things he shouldn't and letting the little scuffles in the box become his focus again. His general shot stopping i don't feel has got worse, i hardly remeber a goal we conceded that i thought he could have done much about, bar him coming for things he shouldn't or doing stupid things in the box but not his shot stopping.
generally, you can say he has not done much worse at shot stopping. but you could see some of his reflexes being slower than other keepers. certain long shots can be saved. jenas one certainly, mendez one maybe. those are just a few egs. he has been slow at moving to stop long shots this season. a young and agile shot stopper would have saved those.
Lehmann's reaction speed has definitely dropped.
