OMG. Please tell me you have a sick sense of humour :shock:
What gave you that idea?
Jens signs another year deal to stay on as our #1 keeper... and we sign a highly rated younger keeper to understudy Lehmann....
that certainly equals "Almunia will be our #1 next season"...
what if go49oner is a prophet? :cry:
more like "what if he obviously just hasnt been paying attention?"
Look am not saying he is going to our #1 all am saying is I get the feeling Wenger may risk it and give him chance.
Do you really expect Wenger saying "Let zee, I`m buying that your Pole becauze I cant stand Almunia who is worse than a potato. He is still with uz becauze nobody wantz to buy him".
i remember that quote... it was said on January 31...... we didnt purchase a 22-yeard old international at that time... and Jens hadnt signed a new deal....
wasn't there a rumour about villareal being interested in almunia?
anyway, i guess wenger is justboosting almunia's confidence...no way will he be our next #1
lehmann will leave us after the next season i guess and by then fabianski should be ready if he does well...his highlits on youtube look very promising
ok rufus, you calmed me down... Maybe actualy Wenger knows what he is doing after all

I guess that is pretty much what we are going to get. If Almunia stays - and I don't know why he shouldn't as he said Villarreal was never interested - I highly doubt that Fabianski will just walk in an take the number two spot, no way.
Hopefully weve got another gem.
Most important thing for me is if he can command the area, organize a defense and generally is comfortable with catching.
Our defending from set pieces is as bad as it is so i'm sure Wenger has addressed those points when looking for a goalkeeper. Hopefully not a problem.
the part about his quote that i think is funny is "When he came to Legia Warsaw he was the second keeper behind Artur Boruc and it didn't take him long (to become number one),"
yeah, once Boruc was signed for Celtic... LOL
I am not sure. I asked some Polish mates and the commanding and catching bit didn't sound all too convincing. But we will see what he can do. He will probably get a few games in the CC.
I will be looking forward to seeing him in the pre-season games.
I think we need to get players in early so they can be on pre-season with us.
Arsenal 'close in on new keeper'
Those quotes are from earlier this season and the ones that some people refered to further up on this page.
Nevertheless, it scares me that Wenger thinks Almunia is a Top Class
Ach he isn't a bad keeper. Not top class obviously but he is as good a back up as any
