In the midst of the hustle and bustle following Tottenham Hotspur’s loss to Juventus, it was easy to miss some of the comments made by Wojciech Szczesny.
The Juve keeper, who spent many years on the books at the Emirates, had some fascinating things to say to The Guardian regarding the support of the North London club in the wake of The Old Lady progressing to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
“There were a couple [of Tottenham] fans – very vocal – next to my bench, who went missing after the 80th minute, so yeah, I enjoyed it. Plus winning at Wembley is always special.” .......Read more here.....

Poland midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak is expected to start against Portugal in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals at the Stade Vélodrome on Thursday night, and will be looking to show Arsenal what they’re missing out following the news he’s set to sign for Paris Saint-Germain.
The Gunners were put off matching the Sevilla man’s €30M asking price in the summer, instead signing Borussia Monchengladbach’s Granit Xhaka, and the talented 26-year-old looks set for a switch to the Parc Des Princes. Krychowiak would provide the steel in the PSG midfield, something the French side have been lacking without the right personnel. .......Read more here.....

According to the Guardian, Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny could be set to return to his parent club after loan talks with AS Roma stalled. The Polish international, currently representing his country in Euro 2016, was holding talks with the Italian Serie A club about extending his loan deal to the end of next season, but negotiations are alleged to have broken down. .......Read more here.....

According to the German football federation Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil will be out of action with a knee injury for 10 to 12 weeks. Ozil had been with the Germany squad ahead of Euro 2016 qualifiers against Poland and the Republic of Ireland.
A statement on the DFB official website read: “The MRI examination today at National Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt in Munich revealed a partial rupture of the outer band of the left knee joint.
“The treatment is conservative, with six weeks of immobilisation of the knee joint. Mesut Ozil is likely to be (out for) 10 to 12 weeks.” .......Read more here.....

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has started a feud with new goalkeeper David Ospina by suggesting the Colombian has little chance of ousting him from the first-team this season.
Following the release of Lukasz Fabianski, who was keeping his fellow Polish international out of the side only two years ago, Arsenal needed a cover goalkeeper. They chose Colombia’s impressive shot-stopper Ospina, who revealed he hadn’t joined to be a benchwarmer, and Szczesny feels more than capable of ensuring he is for the time being. .......Read more here.....

With Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny having shared the Premier League Golden Glove award with Chelsea’s Petr Cech for amassing an impressive 16 clean sheets last season, the Poland international can only get better.
Now 24, the former Legia Warsaw man is among the best shot-stoppers in the league and certainly pushing the top-20 in the world. He made 76 saves in the Premier League last season, and let in only 23 goals from open play. .......Read more here.....

With Arsenal having lost Lukasz Fabianki to Swansea City this summer and Emiliano Viviano leaving the club to return to parent side Palermo following last season’s loan spell, who will be Arsenal’s second-choice goalkeeper for 2014/15?
Poland international Wojciech Szczesny is the club’s number one goalkeeper, and last season he shared the Golden Glove award for mot clean sheets in 2013/14, so it’s very unlikely he will be replaced. Therefore Arsenal need a player willing to sit on the bench as cover. .......Read more here.....

With Arsenal once again being linked with every goalkeeper under the sun, what’s wrong with Wojciech Szczesny?
The Polish international, 24, has been a regular in the Arsenal first team since last season, but is always being rumoured to be replaced by a big-name goalkeeper who would cost a lot in wages and transfer fees.
The club do need a No. 2, after Lukasz Fabianski left the club to join Swansea City on a free transfer this summer. .......Read more here.....

With the news that former Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski will be joining Swansea City at the beginning of July, it seems very strange why he’d join a club with a goalkeeper who’s been the number one for longer than Szczesny was at the Gunners.
Michel Vorm has been Swansea City’s first-choice shot-stopper ever since he signed from FC Utrecht in 2011, and he’s only one year older than Fab.
The Pole said he joined Swansea to be the club’s number one ‘keeper. That doesn’t look like it will be the class as Vorm has continued to be a reliable man between the sticks. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has won this season’s Premier League Golden Glove award for the most clean sheets. He shares the award with Chelsea’s Petr Cech after the pair both ended the season with 16 clean sheets each.
Had Szczesny played in the Gunners last Premier League games against Norwich City – of which Arsenal won 2-0 – the Pole would have won the award outright, but many believe he was being spared for the forthcoming FA Cup final against Hull City on the weekend – with Wenger’s side 4/9 to see past the Tigers in normal time to end their nine-year trophy drought. .......Read more here.....
