The Arsenal shot stopper has been impressive this season and played a big part in our fantastic first half of the campaign. The Pole has recently helped the side get over the line into fourth, managing three consecutive clean sheets.
Speaking after the West Brom game the Arsenal No 1, who is closing in on the Golden Glove accolade with one more League match to go, told Arsenal’s official website:
We should be fighting for the title. I believe we should be in a position to challenge to win the Premier League. But we dropped some important points and lost games and had a new challenge, to finish fourth when we weren’t probably the favourites to do that.
At least we managed to do that for our fans and hopefully we’ll manage to get the FA Cup for them.
I never considered fourth place before the start of the season as a successful season and a good position. I play for Arsenal because I want to win the title every year.
Obviously, at some point, when you lose games and you lose the chance to fight for the title, then the new challenge is to secure the Champions League spot and that was the aim this season but I wouldn’t have taken it last summer.
However he also touched on the positives, spoke about our consistency and our improvement.
We have improved, so that’s one thing we have learned. The squad is stronger and everyone can say the squad was strong enough to challenge for the title.

It didn’t happen for us this year but one thing we have learned is that we are good enough to challenge next year, and hopefully add a little bit more strength as well with a couple of new players coming in.
Hopefully we will be stronger and, if we manage to keep the consistency for the whole season, we’ll be up there.
Yes as Chesser said we should make some additions, most notably in the striking department, a right back, a centre back, a pacy winger and a defensive midfielder who murders No.10’s. That’s not much to ask for is it?
