What do you guys think?...

Dudek - the most experienced, but only a bench sitter
Boruc - great skills, but unstable form
Kuszczak - a new hope
Kowalewski - not shining but solid

Or someone else? Fabianski, Przyrowski, Szamotulski?...

I was JUST ABOUT to make identical thread :]

Kuszczak for me. Both Dudek and Boruc are known to make costly mistakes. Kowalewski? Let's face it - none of us actually sees him playing in Russia.

Honestly I have no idea. We have good goalkeepers but none is no1. Boruc was on form a few months ago but not now, it can change till June though, Dudek - bench warmer but solid and experienced, Kuszszak - great but inexperienced, is he ready to be no1?, Kowalewki - an enigma for me. I wont vote because I dont have a clue!
I would vote for Dudek if he wasnt a bench warmer :(.
I know only one thing, I want Boruc out of the team on current form
.
But maybe we should gamble and put Kuszczak as no1!
Edit: Ok Ive decided I voted for Kuszczak

Of course it's a bit too early to make ultimate decision, but my vote goes to Boruc.

I'm a bit biased, I can't deny this. Still, I remember him playing for Legia - and he never ever failed in a really important game. The more important the game was, the better he performed. He has problems with concentration, but I don't think that could happen in the WC. He's got the skill.

Obviously i have to give my vote to Boruc - i won't deny though that his recent form has been quite worrying...

Just about the only thing Boruc has spoke about since signing for Celtic last summer was his desire to be Poland's no1 keeper at the World Cup, and my theory for his recent poor form has been that the closer we get to the tournament, the more nervous he's becoming about who Janas decides to select for the position - thus it's now affecting his ability and decision-making when he plays.

If Janas was to say right now that Boruc would be his first-choice in Germany this summer then i think it'd give him a huge confidence boost and it wouldn't be long before we see the return of the old Boruc we know and love. I suppose that would be an almost impossible thing for your coach to do though unfortunately.

Kuszczak always looked good when I've seen him, I'd have him ahead of Dudek, don't really know any of the others, so...

I voted for Boruc, he realy can play incredibly and rather poor but if we want something special from that WC we must risk. Dudek is not playing and Kuszczak recently start to play regularly and at high standards.

At this point in time (march) I gave my vote to Boruc because he has more experiance over Kuszczak, buy who will be the starter in Germany depends on what kind of form the two will be in June!!!!

And for me Dudek should not be taken into consideration since he doesn't play. I have to admit it though: he has great experiance and has proved he can play under pressure and make the save when the game is on the line(last year CL)
IF, AND ONLY IF, DUDEK STARTS PLAYING FOR LIVERPOOL... HE IS OUR NO. 1 !!!!!!



LETS NOT STOP AT GOALKEEPERS LETS PICK THE WHOLE TEAM??!!!

I don't see how Boruc is more experienced than Kuszczak.

Areksen is right, Boruc is much more experienced than Kuszczak, for Tomasz it's the first true seson in career and if he would be our's first gollie that would bo to much risk. for Dudek... on bench in club, on bench in NT....

For Borcu or Kuszczak - both are good goalkeepers, they stabiliztaed form in Great Britan. Maybe Kuszczak is bit better.
