hail the Arsenal no1, better than most of the toss goalies we are linked with, and better than that Brazilian crybaby down the road. :thumbsup:

Oopz! Butterfingerzz! Yea, he seems to have blossomed with age at a later stage of his carreer than most, and he looks solid on his worst days. I am now comfortable with him as the number 1. Fabianski looks good aswell.

i really wouldnt mind him being captain, he really reacted well to the responsibility last night, seemed to give the back four great protection. plus maybe it would let gallas concentrate on doing his own job.

Gigi Buffon cost £30m and Manny cost tuppence, come on, as if AW would spend even £5m on a goalie.

everytime I watch Boruc he makes a howler, like the Brazilian crybaby for me, makes some blinding saves but is error prone, I'd rather have a steady and unspectacular keeper like Manny.

Almunia has really grown on me, pretty happy with his performances and I know he's a good lad (is a mates next door neighbour). Must be the only Arsenal player living in St Albans and not Hampstead, which shows he's not a fancy dan.

How could you have doubted Manny? Tsk Tsk ;)

He'll make a few mistakes along the way like they all do less than Boruc though. A position on the pitch that we not need really worry about. He'll do the job.

Gomes is having another howler against Udinese.
some people on soccer pulse said they would take him if there was a spurs firesale. i dont know, but in his psv days (which is still quite recent) he was actually pretty good. Great to see spurs fail in europe =P. destined to lose against bolton now.

Gomes never impressed me. Can make a great save but far too error prone.

Almunia is solid if not spectacular. I really would have liked us to go for Jaaskelainen when he was available this summer really think he is a top keeper.

he is a top keeper. makes great saves and always seems to know what he's doing. we'd be pushing for a title if we signed him.

I was against his appointment as No.1 last season, but he has come in and done extremely well. He deserved to keep Jens on the pine last season.
i agree with that. at first i thought almunia, the man who came on for us when jens got sent off in the cl final and conceded two goals at his near side. but he has certainly taken a step up and performed pretty well for us.
