Lehmann Named Player Of The Year

Lehmann Named Player Of The Year

Despite his Champions League final mishap, Jens Lehmann has been named 'Vital Arsenal Player Of The Season'.

Jens was sent off after 18 minutes of the final after racing from his line to stop Eto'o, unfortunately his timing was a little bit out and brought the player down. If the ref would have had his head screwed on, the goal would have stood and Lehmann would have stayed, but thats water under the bridge and we all still love our very own 'Mad Jens'

Jens has been awesome this season making very few mistakes and pulling off some outrageous saves. The two that instantly spring to mind were both in the Champions League. The first a last minute penalty save in the semi final second leg against Villarreal, conceding a goal at that point would have been disasterous as the Gunners hadn't performed too well, but Lehmann saved the day. But by far his best save of the season, and in my opinion, one of the best saves I've ever seen, was in the home leg against Real Madrid. Raul struck a post with a powerful drive from the edge of the area. Lehmann's attempted save saw him stranded in noman's land as the ball bounced back to Raul. With the goal at his mercy a score was on the cards, but as he rammed it goalwards, Super Jens came flying back at a ridiculous angle to push the ball wide. Sat in the North Bank, I didn't even know he'd made a save until the next day.

Lehmann's form has also seen him dislodge Oliver Kahn as Germany's number one for the world cup, and it's not difficult to see why.

Jen's recently signed a one year extension at Arsenal, and I for one am very happy with the crazy German.

Lehmann pipped Henry to the world's most coverted player award by one vote.

Well played, you deserve it.

He's been excellent this season - he's matured as a player and as a man.
