Almunia, Fabianski in Big Trouble

Image via Wikipedia Vito Mannone put in a man-of-the-match performance yesterday against Fulham. He really surprised me because I was expecting Gallas and Vermaelen to cover up for him. But in the end, he ended up saving the whole team at the end of the match. It has been a long time since an Arsenal goalkeeper single-handedly changed the fortune of a man. The last time I can remember was an FA Cup with Sheffield United when Seaman produced some fantastic saves to keep Arsenal through. I cannot forget that save over the line, mid-air punch which kept out Peschisolido's header. But what about Almunia now. His chest infection will be long remember if he fails to regain his spot after he becomes fit. Many people says Wenger doesn't play a player based on for but on ‘seniority' and ‘special preference'. I disagree. Lehmann was chucked after some indifferent performances. When your time has come, it has come. This may as well apply to Mannone as well if he keeps this up.
