Surprised a thread hasn’t already been made on this, seen quite a lot of discussion recently regards to who should be our main man between the sticks.
Cech was bought in as our World class signing after project Szczesny seemingly failed. Cech had a good first season, which saw him win the Golden Glove, all seemed well.
But his second season has been less impressive and many feel his age is starting to catch up with him.
Ospina has been a very solid signing and has produced some great performances, though is mostly limited to cup games. His strength is shot stopping, and better at dealing with penalties than Cech, though that’s not particularly difficult.
And then lastly there’s Szczesny. Young, good penalty stopper, but rather impulsive. When he was sent on loan to Roma for two years in a row, it really seemed like his time with us was coming to an end. But it appears he’s had a new lease of life over in Italy. I won’t profess to know exactly how well he’s done, but it sounds like he’s matured more since his time away. Could he get a second bite at the cherry?
So, we have three very good keepers on the books, all at different stages of their career. But going forwards, who should be the one to lead the keeping line next season?
