Lukas Fabianski conceded his first goal since returning to the Arsenal first team in their 4-1 demolition of visiting Reading.
Arsenal's goalkeepers may all face uncertain futures, but Lukas Fabianski and Wojciech Szczesny are Poles apart in terms of confidence right now.
Szczesny was dropped by Arsene Wenger after suffering from 'mental fatigue' ahead of the recent game with Bayern, and Fabianski came in and performed adeptly - his first displays of the whole season.
When Szczesny was injured earlier in the campaign so was his compatriot, so Vito Mannone kept goal, but Fabianski right now is the current goalkeeper who can lay claim to being Arsenal's number one.
He kept his place against Reading, in a 4-1 win at the Emirates, behind the now seemingly first choice of defence of Koscielny and Mertesacker.
The 68th minute goal he conceded to Hal Robson-Kanu was the first time his goal had been breached since his return to the team, and if you go back even further - the first time in four Premier League matches, dating back to the last time he started in 2011.
Fabianski's contract runs out in the summer, and whether he has a future at the club remains to be seen. Arsenal have been talked about in connection with signing players like Victor Valdes and Pepe Reina in goal, so it's fair to say the stopper is playing for a new deal, or even simply to put himself in the shop window.
So how did supporters feel he did on Saturday, despite conceding his first since returning? Here is a look at their reactions on Twitter...

This defence hasn't been tested yet properly, Believe it or not but yes Fabianski has been better than Scsz. #AFC— Vaibhav Bajpai (@darkgoonerJr) March 30, 2013
Fabianski just feels right now. He oozes a new found confidence. No more flappy-hansdki. #AFC— Real Arsenal Fan (@Mr_Arsenal2013) March 30, 2013
Fabianski seems to have gotten so much sharp so quick. #Afc— Carlos Edem (@Anointed1000) March 30, 2013
Fabianski has been solid ONCE AGAIN! I think we all should start to think that he has changed. #AFC— Hound (@ArsenalHound) March 30, 2013
Fabianski doesn't look like a long term Arsenal keepep. He's inflating his price by playing well, lets cash in on him, and get a better GK.— TheLoyalGuns (@TheLoyalGuns) March 31, 2013
People criticised Wenger for dropping Szczesny against Bayern for Fabianski. Conceded just 1 goal in 3 matches!— Vinayak . (@IWillGoNearPost) March 31, 2013
I though Fabianski looked very comfortable yesterday. Good postioning, good use of ball. Talks a lot. Early days but well played lad.— Steve⚽Gooner⚽Martin (@HarlowGooner) March 31, 2013
Despite having not much to do there seems a calm authority about Fabianski that wasn't there previously— Simon Boswell (@Gooner2610) March 31, 2013
Should Fabianski be kept in the summer?
