Wojciech Szczesny: Should He Come Back As #1?

    Must say this was one of the first things I noticed about Cech. The better distribution. I knew it was the case but to actually see the change was quite surreal.

    You think Cech has better distribution than Szczesny? I'd say distribution is probably the weakest part of Cech's game.

    Unless he's improved, Shezzer couldn't boot the ball to the half way line

    When a league when having top keepers like Buffon Handanovic Donnarumma Riena to be all ahead of them and kept more clean sheet then them is great.

    You have to remember Wojciech was 24 when he played his last Arsenal game! Still a baby for the position.

    Turing 27 today most likely still not in his prime years.

    I haven't watched him play, but I'd like to see a better, ;proven keeper between our sticks. I didn't agree with Cech coming, he couldn't command number one at Chelsea. If we want to challenge we have to get in the very best we players can, some players who would at least get into positions in our rivals teams.

    The most important thing with Wojciech in his time with Roma he stopped to his clown things when he was at Arsenal he learned alot of things there he become more confident more solid in the air and better shoot stooping.

    Let's agree that keeping clean sheets does not automatically equates to best GK. Chez had the most clean sheets a few yrs ago (with Cech) and he was not by any stretch the best PL GK.

    No, that isn't what I meant. I saw it as an improvement when we first got Cech. I believe this has gone down hill since. FOr me, Szczesny is the better keeper in all aspects.

    I decided to read up on Donnarumma and this was the first result "Manchester City prepared to pay £130m for AC Milan goalkeeper in world-record transfer" :lol: God The Sun is such a **** rag.

    Don't Roma have a good back line too? Been impressed with Manolas at least the few times I've seen him.
    Not as down on Cech as most around here are, but if Szczesny has improved a lot it probably makes sense to take him back given Cech's age.

    Szczesny's kicking was better than Cech's 9 times out of 10, in my opinion.

    Okay fair enough. Maybe I am not remembering correctly. Always been a Cech fan so I was pretty bias when he first arrived. I have since accepted Cech has few amazing games left in him.

    Yeah Szczesny's kicking was awful. Going purely off stats though it looks like he's improved a lot (although he's notably distributing it short):

    Even if Szczesny's distribution is still awful, I don't recall it ever being as bad as Cech's this season. Still fuming over that first goal at the Etihad.

    Also much better at playing out from the back than Cech, lad loves his cruyff turns against an onrushing CF :drool:

    His kicking was absolutely a source of frustration, towards the end of his 'last' season here he was getting regularly slammed for not getting the ball over the half way line.

    A sensible manager would notice that and either get him coached properly (lol) or just not have him attempt the long kicks too often.

    His whole game has improved greatly since he's been on loan, his distribution is excellent but where he really is head an shoulders above the rest is his shot stopping, he pulls off some great saves.

    I'm telling you and everyone else now, if we don't bring him back in the summer we will be kicking ourselves, I am absolutely 100% sure of that.

    I wouldn't mind if he came back, do really like the look of this Pickford lad though. Could be incredible.

    Not as #1, but ready to replace Cech when necessary. Ospina will leave and Martinez could be loaned out as Szczesny will be above him in the pecking order.

    IF he really returns, though.
