Really good performance today our defense seem more comfortable with him then cech
On current form he is absolutely world class. If he maintains similar consistency when we sort out our defense then it wouldn't surprise me to see Bayern come calling for him in a year or two if they need a new goallie.
Big performance. Commanding in the box, and big saves.
They are pretty big on this guy
After De Gea it feels like getting a young guy to come in and be your goallie for a decade has been the goal for every big team.
I've always believed he would make it here and preferred to play him than sign Navas, who's obviously an excellent keeper in his own right, when those rumors were about. Everyone knows he has the talent, he was compared to ter Stegen at one point. He just needs to get his head together and start putting in consistent performances with the occasional blinders which he is currently doing.
He's still on the young side for a keeper, having just turned 27, but now is the time to make the next push in his development. As he grows older and gains more experience, hopefully his mental side will improve, and allow him to blossom into a top keeper.
He should have the experience having played nearly 400 odd games. He is a good age as well. Compare him with Sczesney, he is a year younger and played 50 odd more games than him.
I had my concerns at the start. He didn't fill me with confidence but he has won me over. Another success story from the summer window.
What I love about him is that he's really earned the f*ck out of every single one of those clean sheets. The Wolves game still sticks out in my mind as one of the greatest goalkeeping performances seen at this club
I wasn't sold on him when he joined but he's winning me over. He's showing his array of skills and I think he's a great start to rebuilding our defence which I hope we tackle in the summer.
Wasn’t convinced when we signed him, didn’t look too convincing at the start but you need time to adapt and in recent months, he’s been excellent.
Safe to say, as far as next season goes we don’t have to worry about our keeper situation because it looks promising.
Don’t want to get too carried away because he has to keep this up if he wants to be considered good enough for Arsenal.
Need to take more chances like this on the market! The fallen prince of german goalkeepers but boy o boy is he getting back there. Always had the talent, his best years are still ahead of him.
Yeah same sentiments, wasn't impressed until recently, but he's put in some big performances lately and today he won us the 3 points, match winner performance.
World class performance again. Some very decisive saves - a couple og them from point blank range.
Aside from his saves, his kicking is excellent. A few times he popped a few 20 yarders into the wing backs- he can do it with either foot too.
He’s been nothing short of brilliant as of late. He’s not parrying the ball into dangerous areas as much as he used to. His saves against Lukaku and Eriksen were world class, had De Gea made those saves Sky Sports would dedicate a channel to them.
Excited to see his development. Could be a top, top keeper.
The only GK we need in the summer is a back up, Leno's a Keeper!
This is one reason why I'm not a fan of one GK for PL another for cups. I'm not blaming Cech for our loss to Rennes but the OG by Monreal may have been stopped by Leno because he has fast reflexes, something that Cech lost a few seasons ago.
You aren't wrong about this. I just want to add, though, that Comparing Cech to Leno in terms of reflexes this week is harsh. This lad has made some the greatest saves I have EVER witnessed in this sport in this week alone.
He leads from the back. This guy is always switched on and plays an active part in both our defence and attack. A lot of courage too - Torreira, Guendouzi and Leno worked out better than I could've hoped for.
I've compared their reflexes way before this week and pointed out goals conceded by Cech previously that I felt Leno may have saved. As I said, I don't want to be seen to be blaming Cech, he's a great No2 but at this point in EL we should be using our No 1.
