Almunia has gone on loan to West Ham... What does this mean for him?


The reason why I ask what it means for him because surely he goes to West Ham as their number 2, as I cant see Rob Green getting displaced! His arsenal career is over in my eyes and as a keeper in his 30's who has never been a true number one, how must he feel?

It means that he is going to let even more goals in and add to his poor record as a goalie. Let Green play (injured or not) and keep Almunia as a ball collector. WestHam hardly need his contribution if they want to get back into the Prem!

Almunia even at his age does rookie mistakes. A liability to any team. yes he will make the odd good save here and there but when you need him that's when he will make the mistake. People forget how long he's actually been at arsenal!

I don't even know who West Ham's backup keeper is but he's probably better Almunia

I do remember at time when we after the Robinson saga that Almunia was considered so @James is right. Same with Arteta because they have British citzenship I believe.

He's elligible to play for England yes. I think he's quite good and belongs at least at lower premier league level.

West Ham are a Premier League team in the Championship so players "taking a step down" should not feel discouraged by a transfer to the Hammers.
