Wojciech Szczesny: Admits Boruc is in better form

Boruc has not played a competitive game for Poland in two and a half years but could return to the side for their World Cup qualifier against Ukraine on Friday after impressing for the Saints this season.

Szczesny, on the other hand, has suffered a downturn in form at Arsenal which has seen him dropped by Arsene Wenger for their last two games, with fellow Pole Lukasz Fabianski stepping in.

Asked who was currently playing better out of him and Boruc, Szczesny told Przeglad Sportowy: "Definitely Artur Boruc.

"Since February, my situation has changed. I have had a drop in form."

Szczesny admits he does not know who coach Waldemar Fornalik will choose between the sticks in Warsaw on Friday night.

"It is not settled who is first choice," he added. "It's hard to speak about this, because I do not know if I'll play. I haven't come here as a back-up.

"My goal is simply to try and get a place in the first-team."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
