Update: Cesc Fabregas, in a great display of leadership, stands up for Fabianski. It’s Cesc. Just “Cesc.” With all the talk of Rooney being a a number 1 type player, is there any doubt that Cesc is top five…he’s clearly top 10. Digressing…
Luis Fabianski’s brain cramp today at Dragon Stadium, helping FC Porto to a 2-1 win. The sad thing is statistically Fabianski has been better than Almunia over the past year.
Fabianski putting his mitts on the back pass created the free kick, but as TSG commenter Matt Mathai and I discussed in the comments section, the defenders need to step in and force the ref to step-off the requisite yards and thus slow the play down.
More from Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on what the ref should have done.
All this being said, not the best game for the, gulp TSG heritage on the line here, pride of Poland goalkeep.
