Goalkeeping problems at Arsenal

Posted on February 20, 2010 by in Arsenal, English Premier League

No surprise to see that Arsene Wenger is holding the referee responsible for Lukasz Fabianski’s errors, which culminated in Arsenal’s defeat to Porto recently. The blame will no doubt end up be laid upon the Polish goalkeepers shoulders.

It is hard to follow some of the goal keeping greats that stood before Fabianski. The search for a reliable first choice goalkeeper continues. Something that has evaded Arsenal since the departure of David Seaman. Similar to what happened at Manchester United after Peter Schmeichel left. Big shoes to fill, well, in front of goal mouth rather than commentating.

Man U have now found Edwin Van Der Sar……….but the search continues at Arsenal.

Over at Spurs-Web there has been an interesting debate about whether Tottenham’s Champions League dream is over. Tottenham fans had the utmost faith in Harry Redknapp.

Most expected spurs to finish in the top four of the premiership.  Then…. whack.  A disasterous home game against Wolves, and Tottenham whimper off with their tales between their legs after having succombed to the double by Wolves.

Obvoius questions flying around now are ‘can Spurs finish in the top four?’  Especially as Liverpool has picked up it’s game.  Not to mention Manchester City widening the points gap.  Have they blown the chances of qualifying for the Champions League?
