Leno or Martinez for number 1?

    Simple question, who do people want to see as our first choice GK next season?

    Leno is up for our player of the year award whilst Martinez has been brilliant since coming in.

    They have both been superb this season. I think it would be criminal to compare them now.

    Can’t go wrong either way. Martinez ahead for me because of his dominance on high balls and the fact that he’s waited 10 years for his time.

    They've both got two years left on their deals, right? I like Leno more, but keep the one the signs an extension and sell the other one. No other team in the top 6 has two top goalies, it's a waste of resources.

    Martinez has all of Leno's best attribute and then some.

    He just about edges it

    Yeah that’s what edges it for me too I think. Had a bit of a flap in a contest with Giroud but it was an awkward one. We haven’t had a dominant GK on high balls for years.

    1 vs 1's. The quicker reaction stuff as well, imo. I'd say his frame makes him a bit quicker and more agile. I don't think Martinez could make this double save Leno did against Sp**s, as an example.

    If Emi Martinez keeps up this form and is consistent then it has to be him.


    This was unreal.

    I posted a week or something ago about selling Martinez because no one would buy Leno on his wages but actually f*CK that

    Martinez is Arsenal through and through

    I thought Leno was our player of season at point of his injury. That said Martinez has been fantastic. It's a good problem to have deciding between the two.

    I always like to go with form, so for me it's Martinez spot to lose now.

    He clearly loves the club. We should be keeping players like him and AMN here at the club.

    More hardworking players and less players like Guendouzi.

    This game was 9 months ago. Martinez was **** in this one. He might have turned the corner but he wouldn't be the first goalkeeper to have a purple patch. I'd still go with Leno just because he has done it for 2 seasons.

    Also have to consider if having no fans makes it easier for Martinez somehow. It’s a really hard decision to make, I think if Leno starts the first game we’ll probably lose Martinez this window. If Martinez starts the first game I think we could keep both for the season when Leno would then move on in 2021.

    Just have to trust Arteta and the GK coaches I guess.

    Martinez has to start next season as number 1 because he’s been playing like a number 1. Been immense.
