I Want To Stay, But I May Leave

I Want To Stay, But I May Leave

The crazy German stopper claims his priority is to stay at Arsenal, but would be open to offers should talks break down.

Jens Lehmann has turned in many wonderful performances for the boys in red and white, but for some, he has recently become (if possible) even more crazy and possibily even a liability.

However Mr Wenger has continued with his one year for over 30's policy, something Lehmann is considering.

After being asked if he may leave Arsenal, Jens said

'I don't know. But in the talks about my future, Arsenal definitely has top priority. A one-year contract wouldn't be so bad.'

'But I'm not saying that there is a 100 per cent chance I would stay in the event of an Arsenal offer.'

'One has to look closely at everything. If there is no agreement with Arsenal, I'm open.'

'I might not make a decision until May. I'm pretty relaxed about my whole situation.'

I hope jens stays, madness et al, he brings great keeping, occassional errant decisions, fantastic entertainment. But by and large his time at arsenal has been one of having confidence and an assuredness in our main man between the sticks. Let us also remember the way he helped martial our rookie defence to the CL final last season, that extra responsibility seemed to bring something extra out in him, much in the way that the captaincy has to Gibber at the present time. »»Arsene Knows««

I agree, however, he isn't getting any younger. I think last season he was exceptional and this year he has shown signs of certain weaknesses that show up when age starts to catch up. He could be a great no.2 for a few years if we could get a worthy no.1 that is. I have watched Boruc several times for Celtic and for Poland and he has earned my vote. Akinfeev is a bit short for a GK although he's good and Hildebrand is inconsistent. Luckily non of them are fat ar*ed like that lump from the Lane, England's no.1.

I love Mad Jens to death, but I don't think it'd be the worst thing in the world if he left this summer, provided we brought in an adequate replacement. Boruc is the man I want...his performance for Poland against Germany was about as good as any turned in by a keeper at the World Cup. And he's still a young guy, so he's someone we could build with for the next ten to twelve years. As far as Jens goes he's just been incredible for us the last two years, and I doubt any Gooner would hold it against him if he signed a longer deal elsewhere, or returned to Germany as he said he'd like to do.

yep, same sentiments here. id like jens to stay for a year, but at the same time, the goalkeeping slot is the only position where arsene doesnt seem to have planned for the future, and id like to see that remedied this summer, by bringing in someone young. if that happens and jens has to go coz of that, then tough luck. but jens will alwasy be remembered for the good times at arsenal.
