Absolutely Fabianski

My Swansea-supporting pal Huw thinks we've got a good goalkeeper and a decent bloke in Lukasz Fabianski. He was regularly serenaded by Swansea fans with chants of "we've got a big Pole in our goal!" and after relegation he shed genuine tears as the fans implored him to stay. Fabianski also thanked his neighbours for treating him as a person and not a footballer. 

He spent four years in Swansea's goal and during that time made more appearances than any other Premier League goalkeeper, missing only three games. Football365 also has some impressive stats. Over the last three seasons Fabianski has made 369 saves, more than any other PL goalkeeper and he's also come out top in shots saved from both inside and outside the box. Those figures may be slightly skewed by he fact he's played more games than his rivals, but still indicate he's a pretty good goalkeeper. And if he wants to keep up his reputation as a fine shot-stopper he'll get plenty of practice at West Ham…
