Proof that Almunia is one of the worse keepers in the league!

Not for the first time this season, Arsenals number one keeper Manuel Almunia mistakes costs Arsenal points in the hunt for the title.

Arsenal Fans on the forum seem to think that he is the weak link in the team? So after a bit of research into other keepers in the league it proves that Almunia is one of the weakest keeepers in the league when it comes to shots to saves.

If Arsenal want to win the title, or anything in the future then need to have a decent keeper. Now with the season over I feel that Fabianski should get a run of games to see what he can do. And in the summer Wenger should look at bring in Joe Hart.

Its a shame but with Players like Silvesrtre, Denilson, and Almunia playing for Arsenal they are always going to make mistakes that cost us points and… the title.
