Fab Aiming For Goal

Summer signing Lukasz Fabianski believes that with a lot of hard work he can oust Jens Lehmann from between the Arsenal sticks and become number one goalkeeper this season.

The Poland internationl arrived from Legia at the start of the transfer window and as usually cries of 'who?' went up from Gooners everywhere.

Since then we've learned alot about him as a player. The most interesting fact is that in Eastern Europe he is held in higher regard than Igor Akinfeev - a 'keeper regarded by many as the brightest goalkeeping prospect in the world.

Despite impressing during pre-season, Lukasz knows that he is going to have a fight on his hands if he is to command Kolo Toure and Co this season.

'Of course the rivalry is pretty intense. But it is all fair play and according to rules,' he told Arsenal.com. They [Lehmann and Almunia] are both nice to me and I enjoy working with them. I can’t say a bad word about them because they are both decent blokes.

'We will see what the near future will bring. I know that it won’t be easy to become a first-choice keeper but it never was easy and I expect some tough competition.

'I have to work hard and make my name at this Club. I know that Lehmann is in a better position than me but it doesn’t worry me at all.

'I just want to focus on hard work and I know that the results will come. I know that I will have my chances. I just need to prove that I am good enough.'

Looks pretty steady, only had one Jamesian moment when against Salzburg he was carded for coming for the ball and taking it ouside the area, apart from that, yeah impressive.

Still too early, IMO. Looked assured in the pre-season games and has good potential for sure. Looks like he has a good attitude as well.

He looks like Lehmunia doesnt he. He has the tempermant of Almunia but the distribution of Lehmann. We dont really know how he is when he is in goal because the defence play well with him in net :D

He looks decent and it's good to see a player thats come to fight for a place, rather than money-grabbing sods that shall remain nameless, eh Shaun?

I think Wenger will probably stick with Jens primarily in league games and possibly use Fabianski in CC games. I doubt Almunia will like that though! Credit to Almunia, he looked good in every game he played last season. I'd say he has just as much chance of replacing mad Jens as Fabianski does.

Maybe for a start he will be number two ahead of Almunia and eventually he can takeover if Jehns slips up. Good mentality Fab

How about Mad Jens in the Premiership and Champions League, Almunia in FA Cup, Woo-kash in Carling Cup?

If Lehman countinues crap goal keeping like last season then I would be glad to see Fab or Almunia in the goal
