Q

Best in the Premier League?
How is that even a question!? 😉

Ralph77

It was a typo, was supposed to read “best in the league.” But, since you asked, it’s a question because there is a question mark at the end of the phrase.

I had forgotten how many amazing saves he’s made this season, love WS, but our defence as a group have been legends…

Rosicky's sprints...

Best in Europe….

Nice video, great music

Shere Wil power

Good video but thank god for the mute function, horrible music!

No mind the gap jokes please!
No mind the gap jokes please!

The save to his right v WBA is one of the best saves you’ll ever see!

Chaplin35

Was just gonna say that, still can;t get my head around that how he managed to shift his balance

totalgunner

well all that ninja training in asia is being fruitful

A very nice showcase of his skills this video is.
He is definitely a terrific talent and has the potential to become the world’s best in a few years but he is yet to reach his peak. Even now I would say he is the best in the PL (our among the 2 bests) and he is getting just better and better.

Ozil is a goooooner

Would never have imagined, this time last year, we would even be talking about him being best in the league what with the silly errors and being replaced by Fabianski. What a player though! Easily top 3 in the league right now, could well be the best!

neils scruggs

Its important to remember the terrible experience he had at Euros ’12. As one of the biggest names for the host nation, he gets sent off in the first game and never regains his spot. For a young keeper that had to be a huge hit to his confidence, and its not surprising his form was down last year.

He’s a huge talent and loves the Arsenal, so hopefully he’s around for the next dozen years and becomes a Arsenal legend.

Heroldgoon

He has Ten clean sheets in the league and dirty ones at home, i mean have you seen his girlfriend?

Ofcourse he’s the Best in the League!

GUN

Conceded 6 goals against Man City. Still we have the best defensive record in the league

Danish_Gooner

When he saved that header near the ground some time around christmas, that was an amazing save, and very important. Who was it against, anyone?

Shere Wil power

I think it was West Brom but I’m not sure, it was in the video though.

Arsenal Till I die

It was against Cardiff (I think Frazier Campbell was the one who headed the ball)

Aditya

Like a boss Sir Chezza

duno

Undoubtedly.

Naija Pikin!

His performance has been flying under the radar. And I don’t mind as long as he keeps it up.

GU1TAR-D3MON

Great video. Great music. Best keeper

Godwin elo

For now, i think he is the best in the EPL.

cheekyjc

Great keeper, and a nice bloke too. If he can cut the moments of madness out of his game, he’ll be one of the best 🙂

Double98

? Does not compute

rossi88

Great saves. Consistently at a good level this year. Bit lucky a couple of times. But he has easily gained us 6 points already. On course to be world class. Dominates the area and good communication.

Double98

The only criticism I’d make… Is that he tends to bat away balls more than seems necessary. I mean you want your keeper catching the ball, of turning it round the post. Ches seems to almost have too strong a wrist.?

Don’t get me wrong… He is a country mile ahead of the other pl keepers…

James

It is a European tactic taught to prevent Joe Harts from happening(where you spill the ball on to the striker’s path)

Heroldgoon

He would have saved all but 1 of Uniteds goals today so yeah he is the best, Way ahead of that Llama De’gea and that masked chelsea cunt.

Jason

Noo way hes the best in the league… annoys me his decision making still a bit off i say hes deffinately a tallent he has potential, hes benefited from a better defense in front of him but still has a long way to go.

Good Omens

Now by no means do I agree with you entirely, but your point about the defence is spot on, they are a unit , have improved as a unit, and hopefully will continue to perform as one. If they keep doing that, well then we have a chance this year, lets enjoy the ride.

Jason

Also remove the rating system its fucking shit people comment purely wanting to get likes instead of putting interesting creative comments… thats why i never criticised fatgooner cause atleast he waa never afraid to speak his mind.

mlh

are people really so sensitive as to worry about whether their comments gets a thumb up or down? Gosh people, this is the internet… nobody actually knows who you are! You’ll be able to go into the office tomorrow without fear of ridicule because some people didn’t like a comment you made on an arsenal blog…

regarding the best keeper in the league… well, i think he could be, but he needs to work on his kicking and distribution… almunia may have not made it at the arsenal, and for good reason, but his distribution was fantastic, many counter attacking goals were scored from his throws out…

Goontang

Cant believe what wonders Arsene dropping him to the bench did last season for the run in. He seems a different person and player. His kicking game was always always so shakey, now i would say his distribution is a massive strength of ours.

This boy could be our greatest goalkeeper for the next 15 years. And that saying alot with our long history of class between the sticks.

santori

I won’t say he is best in the league but he is intelligent and improving very quickly.

Still prone to a couple of slack mistakes here and there but his positioning and reading of the game is much better, in particular his command of the box and knowing when to come out to collect a high ball.

OTOH, Stecklenberg was very good against us. If Fulham continue to struggle, would not mind picking him up and letting Fabianski Viviano leave. Stecklenberg and Szsc together would be sufficient for our needs (with maybe one of the young hopefuls from the Academy taking up the third slot)

jason

agreed a improved defense gives a keeper confidence and secuirity..

Remember in 2007/8 Almunia was good till we started to play very attacking with a dodgy defense he got worse season by season as the defense good worse.

Thanis Lim

I have to agree that our improved defensive partnerships are helping our keeper but I felt he himself has done well to make all these great saves and good concentration to read the game well. An exceptional talent who has done well from the setback last season. I look forward to his improvement – he’s still young for a goalkeeper’s age!

WaterfallTears

Remember when fans wanted Begovic and Samba instead of Mertesacker…the list goes on.
I don’t know where Arsenal would be if Wenger listened to fans most of the time like some managers do. I’m so glad Wenger doesn’t listen to the media and the fans who are brainwashed by the media. He knows his players better than anyone else and it’s great as a Gooner to see his faith being repaid this season. Btw that save against West Brom was out of this world.

WaterfallTears

*Begovic instead of Szczesny

killthecockerel

I love most Arsenal forums and sites, but I wish people would express themselves in English.

61 NeverAgain

Ive always taken an interest in our two polish keepers and its great to see Szczesny doing so well,I always believed he would come good(still not the finished article, especially in distribution),but for his age he is up there,believe it or not but (probably get slated here) I also felt Fabianski has the potential to be a very good keeper as well, as with most keepers ability has to coincide with confidence and experience, which in the past both had little experience and therefore low on confidence. Fabianski will probably leave and go on to show his capabilities.They both come from the same very respected Polish keepers “school” and Fabianski was lauded just as highly as his compatriot by his peers and mentors. Fortunately for Wojciech,he has his father who happened to be another great GK to aid in his development, and he will get better unlike Almunia who was never going to be good enough for The Arsenal

Swedegunner

Frank Ocean!

Oliviers6Pack

Who could you genuinely put ahead of Wojtek in the EPL? Cech has history behind him – granted, Hart is glorified for being a pom, De Gea remains largely unproven. Mignolet may be a shout, Vorm has faded away.

1. Cech
2. Szczesny
3. Mignolet

hi my name is

He has a very strong right hand.

Yeah……

Arsepedant

I can’t thing of anyone better than Szczesny in the PL right now. He’s fantastic. He’s strong, consistent, and smart. He commands the box like no-one else. Every part of his game is top notch.

Back when Untied signed de Gea, I remember a Manc-supporting acquaintance of mine laughing at me and telling me he had the world’s best goalkeeper and we had squat. Anyone see de Gea’s howler against Sunderland today? He’s got worse with age, and Szczesny’s got better. I know who I’d rather have in goal for us, and it ain’t no Spaniard!

killthecockerel

de gea is now very poor, he was responsible for two of the goals v chelski and had a howler last night. There’s no comparison with regard to both of our Polish keepers. They are much better than de gea and Woj Szczesny is the best in the league along with Petr Cech. Our young Pole will now only improve, whereas Cech is coming to the end of a fine career.

GK

Actually, I think de Gea has improved dramatically from when he first joined United. I didn’t think he would become a solid goalie but I think he is fine now.

I think all Goalkeepers give up howlers occasionally like he did today but he is still a good keeper.

I also agree that Szczesny has improved and looks good, but I don’t think he is the best in the league.

I agree with the previous comment that many keepers are parrying and punching shots and crosses much more than they used to. I don’t really understand this. It seems like the philosophy/culture has changed for the worse in this regards. I see so many keepers parry and punch balls that look very “catcheable”

JSergio

I think we don’t always see this, but the balls are lighter and move in the air more then they ever did. I think this is why keepers go for the safety first option. Every mistake they make is vilified.
