Lukasz Fabianski, Manuel Almunia, Vito Mannone – Season Reviews

Lukasz Fabianski

Position : Goalkeeper

Nation : Poland

2011/2012 Appearances : 6

Fabianski, at one tipped to be the number 1 keeper at Arsenal, has barely featured, owing to the rise of his own compatriot, Wojciech Szczesny. He has had to contend with being second choice, and many are expecting him to leave. He played in the 3-1 win over Shrewsbury as well as the 2-1 won over Bolton, both Carling Cup games. He pulled off numerous saves against Bolton. He had a poor night in Olympiakos, where he was guilty for conceding both, and even suffered a knee injury, and had to be taken off. He would next go on to play in the 3-2 FA Cup win over Aston Villa, where he made several saves. The second goal scored by Villa was initially saved by Fabianski, but Bent scored off the rebound. He would also play in the 2-0 cup exit at the hands of Sunderland.


It is more than likely that Fabianski will look for a different club to get more time on the pitch. He gets a 6.5.

Manuel Almunia

Position : Goalkeeper

Nation : Spain

2011/2012 Appearances : 0

After nearly 170 appearances for Arsenal, Almunia fell down the pecking order and has spent time on loan with West Ham, before he was released by the club earlier this week.


Vito Mannone

Position : Goalkeeper

Nation : Italy

2011/2012 Appearances : 1 (1 as sub)

Mannone came on as a sub for the injured Fabianski in the dead rubber Champions League clash against Olympiakos. He made a complete hash of it, allowing David Fuster to score the third side for the Greek team. He has since spent time on loan with Hull City.

I would like to introduce myself starting with my favourite quote "I don't know whether life is sh*t cos Arsenal is sh*t or the other way round" - Nick Hornby, author, Fever Pitch. Since I started supporting Arsenal, every mood of mine, every bit of my behavior is a reflection of Arsenal's form! Well, that's enough a description to tell you how much I love the Gunners! :D I have my own Arsenal blog,
