The Leavers Thread

As we're unlikely to see terraces again at football, this is the virtual equivalent where you can chat to your hearts content about all football matters and, obviously, Arsenal in particular. This forum encourages all Gooners to visit and contribute so please keep it respectful, clean and topical.

It's noticeable how well our ex-keepers do when they leave. Fabianski and Mannone both kept their new teams in the premier league longer than they should've, szcezsny has recently broken Buffon's record of quickest time to reach 10 clean sheets.
Cech's got worse at the club and he brought his own coach. The reason is obvious yet nothing gets fixed.
Walcott, Giroud, Ox, Coquelin all had decent careers at Arsenal but it was their time to go. Merson, Kevin Campbell, Micky Thomas all left and were replaced by better players, which is what's happened this January. That's the risk a club takes but I'm sure we're better for it.

Didn't Szczesny sum it up when he said he learned more about keeping in his first 4 months at Roma than in 10 years at Arsenal with Gerry Peyton and Wenger.
