Mad Jens In Quit Shocker

Mad Jens In Quit Shocker

OAP nutcase goalkeeper, 'Mad' Jens Lehmann plans to retire in 2008.

It doesn't come as any great shock as the German number one approaches his 37th birthday. Lehmann is aiming for one last major tournament before he retires.

'At the age of 36, I have the European Championships ahead of me in two years and that is what I am working up to,' he told Kicker.

'Afterwards I think that will be it, both with the national team and as a professional footballer.

Lehmann also hinted at an earky Arsenal exit with his desire to play one last season in his home country.

'We will have to see how the season goes, whether I extend with Arsenal or not.

'I would still like to play another season in Germany.'

He maybe knocking on a bit be I believe Mad Jens is still one of the best in the business.

"buy another lemon" - I hope we do, the amount of stick he takes from away fans is on account of his crazy on field antics, yes he gets a bit over heated sometimes but thats by the by. Lehmann was by far and away the best keeper in the PL and the CL last season, and Pter Cech aside, no keeper in the PL comes anywhere near him. Call him Lemon if you want, but that does not hide the fact he is an awesome keeper.

Stop it USA You'll have me in tears in a minute. Good show yesterday. You looked like you could do with a left back.. and a right-back, centre-half, defensive midfielder, winger, and oh yes, A GOALKEEPER!

I would say that Lehmann is the second best goal keeper i have seen at Arsenal, obviously no one will be better than Spunky.

Left back-definitely-Cashley. Right back-Paolo will be here for only this year. Center-half-JT, Carvalho and Callous Gallas are fantastic Goalie - Cech will be back and Hilario isn't as hilarious as Cudicini. See you in 10 months, we'll be looking over our shoulder BTW.

He has been the best keeper in the premiership for the last year and he is likely to continue this year too.

USA is right, he will need neck support of some kind given the type of football Chelski play, I just hope he doesn't hurt his eyes looking into the sun. Isaksson, who's just signed for Man City, says he still wants to play for a bigger club in England, don't be surprised if him or Buffon arrive next summer.

USA Which goals are you talking about? Like the knee-jerk reaction Grogba scored last season? Y'know, maybe you're right, he may hurt his neck watching the goals go in, coz the Chelsea goal will be on the othe end of the pitch, and of course he'll have to crane his neck to see 'em!
