April 18th might become a day of mixed emotions for the young lad.
One year ago, the Polish goalkeeper was given a birthday start against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals which turned out to be disaster (video). Today, Wenger gave Fabianski a start and his birthday blues continued against Wigan.
As for Arsenal, the Wigan loss brings up the questions again and again about the goalkeeping quality and the lack of composure on defense. And yet, it looked like a stroll at the JJB before Arsenal turned the Wigan attack into a bunch of thieving sharpshooters. Yes, Titus Bramble was one of them. So typical. (video)
