Vito Mannone, born in March 2, 1988, signed by Arsenal from Atalanta for a compensation fee of around £380000, was one of the youngsters I expected to feature in the Carling Cup. I hadn't thought his appearance would be so soon and that he would feature in the Champions League.But here we are. Arsenal team sheet. Goalkeeper: Vito Mannone...... This Italian young man appeared during the Emirates Cup and his performance was a bit shaky at best. He didn't cover himself with glory either in his short spell with Barnsley as he let in a goal in his first game (against Preston North End) by punching the ball unto Agyemang's head which then entered the net.Most people think he is poor and amy not make the grade. But he is 21 and still learning. Gallas and company have a small task of making our young goalkeeper feel safe as he is capable of making good safes, as he has shown Bansfield.
