Seriously Arsene, why Fabianski ?

I must confess to being from "Arsene can do no wrong" school of thought. However, being as devoted to the manager as I am, I still can't see any reason why he is adamant about keeping Flappy in goal for the Champion's League game against Partizan.

I know our manager rates both the young keepers in waiting, Vito Mannone and Wojciech highly. So why not take a chance either one for this match. If anything, this is the best match to see if either can step up and be called upon when the need arises. This is not one of those must win matches that might be too risky to blood them. Even if we lose this match, there is no dire consequences, we would still be able to make the latter stage easily. So what are we still sticking with Fabianski?

We know what we are going to get from him. He's just there to lose us games. Seriously, have he played a game and made you confident about his abilities. He was not trouble at all during his last outing but when he needed to make the one simple save from a weak shot, he fluffed it.

Unfortunately, the boss is still as stubborn as ever when it comes to Flappy. In his interview, he said

"I have no concerns about Fabianski. Only you in the media have concerns. He made mistakes against Porto, but he can show that he has learnt from that."

The probable line-up: Fabianski (sigh) , Gibbs, Djourou, Squillaci, Eboue, Song, Wilshere, Rosicky, Arshavin, Nasri, Chamakh
