SZCZ: “The other keepers must compete with me”

Wojciech Szczesny claims he’ll be starting the season as Arsenal’s number 1 but knows he’ll have to perform consistently to keep his place.

Speaking before Poland’s friendly against Georgia, he said “I received a clear signal from Arsene Wenger before the new season that I would be the number one keeper in the Arsenal goal.

“The other keepers in the team must compete with me, but I do not plan to give up. Of course, I feel a huge pressure. I know very well how good a keeper Lukasz Fabianski is and I must be in top form all the time.”

And with Euro 2012 taking place in Poland and Ukraine next summer, the man who flattened Gareth Bale to within an inch of his life knows that if he performs well he’ll stay ahead of his countryman in the national side too.

“Now, everything is in my own hands. If I do not make any horrible mistakes, I should keep my position until the Euros.”

Arseblog News is reminded of an old Irish saying: May he banish the ghosts of a thousand Almunias until they’re bleeding out their arse.

good man!

I love this kid!

almunia lost my respect once and for all when he was photographed in a tabloid walking his poodle which was wearing a pink doggy jacket. i’m not making that up. what a cunt.

OOKed

Would you rather he was pictured walking his Pitbull which was wearing a spiked chain collar ?

rectum spectrum

is it hard to understand how, yes – that would be far far better than the reality?

Joe Goon

He likes her enough to be wearing her jacket!

nuetral

the woman he with is OK?

Not for a millionaire footballer, average at best

Darsenal

I saw that too, that was after he had claimed the no. 1 spot from the mad Jens.

Marcus Pea

Over confident like Nicky B.

rectum spectrum

But he’s actually good! and more consistent.

don’t read over confidence, consider it as the quirky fucked up mind of a top number 1. All the best ones are a bit mental.

LOL – he loved a good poke of the finger too ole Jens.

Mad bastard 🙂

what an arrogant SOB…….I like it.

nash chiyangwa

these guy are coming out so arrogant and spending too much time on tweeter.wenger has been so soft in his dealing and so has been gazidiz. 2 days before kick off our squad is losing two of the most creative players to major rivals .wenger had all summer to build a squad and he very well knew that nasri and fabrigas were going .barcelona were just playing a paitent game and nasri knows he has a great grip on his future. why spend 15 million on chamberlain and the week before we lose out to getting Mata because we were… Read more »

you’re body will be found in the bath and Nash will be framed for fiddling with a 7 year old for mentioning his name.

He is ‘the insider’. the puppet master. Think along the lines of dodgy movies like ‘the firm’.

delete this post and switch off your mobile and go hide in the nearest library.

Richard Law?

nash chiyangwa

padorn me Richard law. my point thanx for picking on that ,Richard law,not even worth mentioning considering he has done nothing impressive in this transfer window. I truly believe had we built a strong squad to challenge for honours then we would have given fabregas and nasri something to think about. do you really blame fabregas for leaving or nasri for learning from fabregas` mistake(staying and believing wenger would buy). watch how wilshere and vanpersie are gonna leave next summer after we fail to qualify for the CL. we are being led to the slaughter like sheep by the board.… Read more »

Won’t have to perform too consistently as our other keepers are shit. If szcz stays fit we don’t need anyone else. Still should have bought given as a backup. Szcz is quality and could become a true legend

Spooner

Spot on, Dannyboy. Voy-check has the makings of a legend. Like the way he’s been screaming at the defence during set-pieces.

Leave off the crack, Nash. No good will come of it.

cornishlee

Agreed.

Gunner73

He should be captain. Oh and Nash, don’t be a dick. Transfer window closes at the end of August.

cornishlee

Should be completely the wrong choice. And yet in some respects the only choice. I mentioned this in more detail in the Scott Dann rumour thread.

billywhizz

if he doesn’t make a mistake between now and the euros he’ll be the best keeper in the world ever. bring it on!

Ken

I am least concerned with our number one keeper in the season. They are all talented ofcourseI do not rate Almunia as a keeper. I am talking of Sczy, vito and Fabianski. But so long as we have jokers in our defence like Squid then it makes the keepers wotk the more challenging.

I like his attitude. Ever since he made every Tottenham fan wince, when he crunched in to Bale and then smirked, i felt much more confident with him.

Ty

And now for something completely different…

I just read on El Mundo Deportivo that Arsenal and Valencia have reached an agreement that will see Juan Mata come to the Emirates once Cesc completes his transfer to Barca. I don’t know how accurate this is, but it would be some great news for sure

nash chiyangwa

I saw that as well,Valencia will always sell if you show them the money as they are in huge debt and their Guarantor(valencia regionall gorvenment) is pressing for a signifacnt reduction in the debt valencia fc have. i doubt wenger will splash more than 20 mill for this guy because he sure ain`t gonna cost anything less

rectum spectrum

if we can get for nasri what the yellow bananas want for mata that is a great piece of transfer tom-foolery. that would def be the biggest piece of happy news so far this summer.

Genius

Rectum, it’s not Villareal , it’s Valencia..:)

sorin

he could be a good keeper in the future but if arsenal want’s to win something soon they should buy an experienced keeper now

rectum spectrum

i think we need a solid, experienced, 30+ year old number two to keep pressure on szcz and step in and do the job that flappianski won’t in szcz’s abscence.

yes

Tell it like it is son.

I’m very happy with SZCZ as our number 1

Truegooner

I think people should stop picking on Nash. He’s pessimistic yes, but Wenger hasn’t been that savvy this summer. And Fabregas & Nasri’s desire to leave is a consequence of our relative trophy drought. However, we can turn things around if Wenger modifies his policy. Being financially prudent only works if your competitors don’t have the exorbitant amount of money they have. Man City, Utd, Chelsea, even Liverpool have spent and spent. If he wants to get some quality players, Wenger must spend more than he usually does. He doesn’t have to go crazy, but limiting ourselves to Scott Dann… Read more »

pessimistic? he’s the donkey from whiney the pooh.

Danny
Jones

Absolutely hilarious.

Truegooner

Totally brilliant. Would have been slightly better if they got the guy who imitates Arsene on Special One Tv, but great song.

Good-Bloke

I’d agree with him.

Our keeper situation isn’t too bad, SZCZ is definitely 1st choice, Fabianski is much improved and a decent 2nd and Mannone has also made great strides.

vicky

Sczy is the worst keeper of the three and i really don’t know how people are falling for this. He cost us the carling cup trophy, conceded 4 goal aginst Newcastle and on average concede 2 goals a game. Fabianski need a long run in the team and he’s our future no 1 in my book. All Sczy is doing is taking himself up into the team but Arsene is not that stupid trust me guys.

rectum spectrum

i note your points but would disagree. If one person would be to blame for the mix up in the carling cup its the real life bart simpson, Koscielny. What reasonably experienced CB comes to clear a ball 2 feet in front of his keeper and then dummies it? Who does that? Thats the split second decisions that are the difference between world class CB’s and 3rd choice squad players. Szcz had no chance with that. I think overall Szcz has shown more natural talent and confidence in his position than any other keeper currently at arsenal. I think thats… Read more »

gentlemen i am not here to pick a fight.just merely sharing my view regarding a team that hopefully everyone on this blog loves.i feel sorry for you when the best you can come up with is i am a donkey from whiney the pooh.i will ask you one question.how many of our current players would walk into our last championship winning team ?if the answer is less than 3 then do not expect to win the premier league this year. second is the first loser hence not good enough if you are a true arsenal fan .i ask again ,HOW… Read more »

rectum spectrum

LOL – chilax Nash and I meant no offence with the Eeyore, but you were being overy pessimistic there earlier. of course feel free to air your points, as you have done in a very civilised manner and if people have a go at you have some crack back, or just ignore it. Don’t take it personally mate. I think overall its been a very tough time for gunners fans – but as you can see some ‘fans’ take it way too far, calling wenger a cunt etc. But also so much begativity isn’t going to get us anywhere also.… Read more »

NorthernGoon

Quick FYI; it’s Van Persie and Walcott who will be on their last 12 months next summer. That’s two of the three players who’ve said they won’t know what theyll do if Cesc leaves.

Regardless of what happens in this next 19 and a bit days Wenger has let the team and the fans down by letting things get into this situation. I suppose ultimately the board have let us all down by giving Msr Wenger free reign with what appears to be zero accountability.

Professor Plum

He’s fucking mad. And that’s why i like him.

Bob the Gunner

With a defence like this in front of him, he’ll definately be the most busy keeper in the premier league.

ThaatArsenalGuy

“Now, everything is in my own hands. If I do not make any horrible mistakes, I should keep my position until the Euros.”

Hahahaha you know that those the mistakes comments was a direct dig at Fabianski. You gotta give it to Chesney he’s a little cocky fucker! just what we need between the sticks

Wengerafc

sZcZ Is polish for fucking crazy polish goal keeper . Love him – he will be a legend

TomC

Szcz’s mad. Top goalies are mad. So Szcz’s a mad top goalie.

Cones…. mmmm!

Dannyboy

Vicky, put the kettle on!

Will

*quote* arsene wenger,.. Yes it’s absolutely true that both na$ri & cesc will have their futures sorted out before the Newcastle game on Saturday. one way or the other it will be sorted, we will make a decision,.. *End quote*

I think we can expect big news tomorrow.

Dom

That Gareth bale moment is one of my favourite moments from last season, the wink SZCZ pulls to Djourou is the icing!

Scooter

Things I’m looking forward to this season:
SZCZ becoming a commanding keeper
The return of the Verminator and watching him develop with KOS
Sagna’s consistency
Further connection between Song and Wilshere
The return of Rambo
The hunger of Gervinho
The outright dominance of RvP

Things I wish for:
Gibbs to become reliable in both fitness and skill
the return of an arshavin who wants to play every game
Rosicky to develop his confidence again
Chamakh to become the stunning player he was for Bordeaux when they won league 1
yeah and maybe another signing or two 😉
