Don’t know if I missed something with Emi? Saw him taking pain killers at Leeds and letting the CB’s take the goal kicks.

A few rumours here and there but assume he’s in for tomorrow?

I love the guy, he has been excellent for us. I think he has a groin injury but hopefully an injection and some strapping will help him through the game. However if it is better to rest him for a couple of games we should do that given the comfortable position we are in the league.

Is he going to play in a truss?

As good as Emi has been, and he has been very good, the point of a top class back up in tom heaton is that we dont have to risk playing Emi until he is 100% fit again.

We will have to 'truss' the physio and medical staff on that one Dave  ;)

Wouldn’t trade him for any goalkeeper in the world and I really mean that.

Fabulous signing. Fabulous keeper. Forget the fee he has to be our most influential signing since... maybe Paul McGrath

How long has it been since we’ve been able to say ‘We’ve got two world class players in our team’?

Add that we have 5 who, IMO, wouldn’t look out of place in the England set up, shows how far we’ve come.

I think we've only had 3 in my time of watching us
 Platt, Yorke and God.

Martinez is most definitely the best keeper in the league.

I’ve said it before but what the hell did Arsenal not see in this keeper? Absolutely phenomenal.

Excellent keeper. He is in the same category as Jack in players we need to keep for our champions league campaigns.
