Once again Arsenal's problems with their goal keepers came crashing to reality for both the club and supporters.

Manuel Almunia is still out injured and currently Lukasz Fabianski is acting as the north London club's starting keeper.

Arsenal's weakness at the back surfaced once again as Fabinaski was left flapping at a cross in sundays game against Newcastle resulting in the Gunners keeper being beaten by Andy Carroll and conceding a goal that would result in Arsenal loosing 1-0.

It was widely believed that Arsenal were going to bring in a new keeper during the summer, causing disappointment for many of the fans when nothing come of the rumours, and these feelings are yet to die down.

However, following the calamity at the weekend, reports suggest that Arsene Wenger may once again being looking to out of favour Manchester City keeper Shay Given to help bring an end to this ongoing problem.

Reports from Eastlands suggest that Roberto Mancini has given Shay Given permission to leave City during the January transfer window.

When asked about Shay Given Mancini told reporters: "I hope he can stay,"

"But I respect his decision if he wants to leave."
