After a famous and most-unlikely move across London- from the west to the north, Chelsea legend, Petr Cech, the Czech, became an Arsenal player.
In all standards, a transfer from a big club to another just took place. Going by his performance at the first match, where two mistakes led to two goals for Westham FC, coincidentally, also of London, some skeptics felt the big gangling man has seen the better days.
On the contrary, and in fulfillment of the prophesy of another Chelsea FC legend, John Terry, that Cech would save the gunners some fifteen points, he stood like the rock of Gilbratrar, to save his new team on a number of important occasions. Needless arguing on the strength of the team, anyway
Unfortunately, the order prediction by Didier Drogba, yet another Chelsea legend, that Cech would win the Premier League with Arsenal, is still in the balance. The north London club is currently some 11 points behind the league leaders, Leicester City FC, good gracious, not of London, now.
Who could be better than Petr Cech, than Petr Cech himself? At Arsenal, he got another personal record. He did not want to be a benchwarmer at Chelsea, because he was very sure of his qualities. This season, he got his hands on the records of the “Most Clean Sheets in the Premier League”. That he did in grand style overtaking David James’ record of 170 Premier League clean sheets.
With an illustrious career at Chelsea, winning 4 Premier League titles, 4 FA Cups, 3 League Cups, 3 Community Shields, 1 UEFA Champions League trophy and 1 EUROPA League trophy. Not to forget that one of the community shields he won was for Arsenal against his former club, Chelsea. He was played more than 118 appearances for his country; another record for him.
Few days ago, March 22nd, 2016, Petr Cech stood on the stage inside his country, Czech Republic to create another record. He was voted and crowned the Czech Republic Player of the Year for 2015. For the records, that was never his first time; it was his eight time coming. Cech picked up the award for a record eighth time.
So, who could be better than Petr Cech? May be Gianluigi Buffon or Iker Casillas?
