Petr Cech (33)


#422

Surprised we haven’t had more comments about our keeper. Is it because of his past laurels at Chelsea? Wasn’t impressed ever since he came here.


#423

Woj would easily be our no 1 if we hadn’t sold him :flushed:


#424

:hipster:


#425

Another one who definitely needs replacing in the summer.


#426

His arrogance got the better of him and some of his silly mistakes didn’t help.


#427

Would have been making the same mistakes though because we have a geriatric gk trainer. The reason why he has gotten better is because of his loans and the people he has worked with, but still has moments of sheer stupidity.


#428

Cech gonna Cech


#429

Sign Pickford when Everton relegate


#430

Remember when we signed him and there were discussions of us keeping him until he’s 40?

Gee, I hope not. :gabriel:


#431

Still the best keeper at the club but that’s not really saying much. I really thought Ospina was off so we’d have to take a chance on somebody last summer since a Szczesny revival obviously wasn’t happening.

I both can and can’t believe we just stuck with what we had.


#432

If Ospina was gone that guy from Bordeaux (who is now at Galatasaray btw) would probably have his replacement. So no thanks.

Bit it’s evident a good young goalkeeper can do well. There isn’t a big club who haven’t invested in a goalkeeper the past ~5 years.


#433

Under any other manager than Wenger he would have been binned ages ago. Time to get rid


#434

We’ve got him still because the market for keepers is terrible. Everton paid 30mil for overrated Pickford ffs.


#435

Yet we let Szcz go for less than 15


#436

Maybe they marginally overpaid but Pickford isn’t overrated and he’s at a great age.

Pickford not only passes the eye test imo but he’s rated as a very good goalkeeper by all of the goalkeeping models/experts that are made public. Far better than Joe Hart who has been a mess for 2-3 years now and is still playing at PL/INT level because of his reputation alone and nothing else.


#437

Disastrous sale given he’s mid 20s and would clearly be our no 1.


#438

Taking into consideration that a keeper goes for 10 years at a ‘normal’ age…but that’s buying English too.

Ter Stegen and Oblak went for €12-16 million a couple of years ago.


#439

anyoone thinks macey could be his replacement…big lad he looked quite good yesterday.


#440

I think Wenger likes big goalkeepers (said something like that once), makes the signing of Ospina ever stranger :confused:.
