Like he did back in April, when he said that Spurs player didn’t have enough quality to win the race for the 4th place, the goalkeeper sounded (over)confident and bold – two qualities which seem to irritate many Arsenal fans.
I really don’t understand what is wrong with Wojciech Szczesny: we have a tremendously talented goalkeeper, already experienced although very young, who loves to speak out but never hides when it hits back and many people still criticize him.He’s done very well so far, he made some mistakes but never made up excuses and reacted very well when dropped, coming back and delivering great performances in the most crucial moment of the season.
I firmly believe the Arsenal would need more of these strong personalities, more of these players ready to fight back when things don’t go as expected instead of a group of very gifted footballers who have tendency to fade away at the very first hurdle.
As reported by the Mirror, Wojciech Szczesny is ready to fight for his place should Arsène Wenger bring in a top goalkeeper and would welcome competition for the goalie spot as “concurrence will only bring the best out of me”.This definitely speaks sense; this is exactly the spirit I expect from every single member of the team.
I don’t want to have eleven regulars and seven bench warmers or bit-part players, I want eighteen players ready to start and in the same time able to make an impact from the bench.
Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey and Lukasz Fabianski all proved that during the season you get chances to shine and it’s up to each player’s sharpness and determination to keep his place once they are given a starting role.I hated when media started rumors about Thomas Vermaelen departure after his drop, a footballer playing for a top Club like the Arsenal should know that it’s all down to current form and performances – not the name or reputation.
We should have more of the likes of Wojciech Szczesny and less of polite, educated pupils unable to fight back when things become harder.
How many of our players disappeared from the pitch at the very first error or tackle?How many times we felt that this or that player was barely involved in the game?
I want bold players like Wojciech Szczesny, Jack Wilshere or Aaron Ramsey – players who don’t stop trying even after horrendous mistakes.Too many times I saw the likes of Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott alienating themselves from the match, leaving the teammates alone – this must change now.
There’s no easy way out, to change that you must show some personality and take it straight to the chin if necessary.
For any advice, please contact Wojciech Szczesny.
