They lost Thiago to Spain so it's fair enough. I don't have a problem with it, just like I didn't have a problem when France won the World Cup with Zidane, Thuram, Vieira, Dessaily, etc. Just thought it was strange as he was capped by Brazil.

Cue someone bringing up a Pepe mistake. Joke's on them though, because it'll either be an Arsenal fan who has the CARLING CUP INCIDENT or a De Gea/United fan.

Why bring up just one when here's 3 delightful ones?

the guy is unreal. never seen someone improve in such a short amount of time from making their debut and still improve match on match. it will be tough to keep him here in 4 or 5 years if we aren't challenging. he loves the club and said he wants to be our 1st choice for the next 15 years and it has always been his dream to play for us, but the guy is a winner, a leader, and it will be hard to keep him here.
i only saw one very good save from him, the rest were decent. he clearly had a great game there but all his saves were just decent in the sense had he conceded them he would have been disappointed. i liked the consistency, ballwork and effectiveness but i can't say that impressed me (minus the one really good save he did make.)

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

the backheel save was pretty lucky, but most of the saves were stock standard of what you would expect out of an international number one. no better than joe hart

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Szczesny's alright, a prospect maybe but that's about all I can say about him at this point. He may improve and be a top keeper, he may not.

I wonder when he'll do this for Arsenal?

Lots of Italian's migrated to South America in the last two centuries, quite a few players have a grandparent or two.

If a player has only played a friendly they can switch I think, if he'd played a qualifier or cup game he'd be locked to Brazil.

Pepe Reina down the years has reached Barthez levels of hilarity.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

reina still living on the legend of years ago

not sure how Szczesny is a "prospect". Would you rate Wilshere as just a "prospect", just because he is young? I would call McEachran a "prospect" as he hasn't had a consistent run of games and we don't know how he will turn out. If Szczesny kept performing like that for the rest of his career he would still be one of the most consistent. I can't not seeing him being here 1st choice for a long time to come, nothing phases him, his character is better than most, recovers from everything with ease.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

maybe Stringer, but only one of his saves were impressive, hardly anything to base him off of. Joe Hart has cost us (England) wins and nearly did against Wales AGAIN. he'd be a solid keeper if he could catch crosses but his dealing with them is Reina levels of bad.
