Arsenal Set For More Madness?

Arsenal Set For More Madness?

If Jens Lehmann is to be believed, the crazy German will be back between the sticks for the Gunners.......and soon.

Arsene Wenger told us a few weeks ago that Manuel Almunia would replace the injured Jens Lehmann in the Arsenal goal, but we all knew Mad Jens had been dropped.

Lehmann committed two unforgivable errors in the early stages of the season, the second of which contributed to our dropped points in the league this season.

However, the Jens Lehmann we as Gooners have all grown to know and love over the years, is never short of confidence.......and that is not about to change.

'I know I will play for Arsenal again and think it may well be in our next game,' Lehmann told the Daily Mail. 'Maybe this break has been good for me. Maybe I needed it. I never like being out of the team, but look what happened last time.

'The manager left me out for a few weeks three years ago and when I got my place back, I ended up having the best season of my career. I feel ready to come back and play to the same level again. Playing is important, of course, but there is no substitute for quality.'

good to hv jens back.. ppl say many things and although almunia is a decent keeper, lehmann is confident, super quick reflexes and hv stopped plenty of goal bound shots.. he has learnt his lesson, and he'll be at his best given that german has also put the pressure on him.

Cant agree there lads, things have been much more consistant since the 'injury' and also think itd be unfair to drop Almunia for no apparent reason...

Jens was pretty good in the two games he played, obviously the blunders were pretty bad and won't be erased from memory quickly. I don't see a problem with him returning. The best man should play. Arsene knows...

Well lets hope he concentrates on his game and not on getting into verbal sparing with Almunia...which is not helpful for team spirit.

He is really cocky. Is that a good thing or a bad thing, im not real sure?

He's come out with some real crap regarding Almunia recently, Manu has bided his time patiently waiting for chances and in my view has done a pretty sterling job, Lehmann on the other hand would start an argument in an empty feckin room, I'm quite looking forward to his retirement in all honesty.

Jens has a fair point about 3 years back - he had one of the best spells of his Arsenal career after he was dropped. But things have changed since then, Almunia dropped a few clangers then, and we all welcomed Jens back then. NOW, Almunia and the defence have looked assured overall (apart from Sunderland which I hope was a one-off), and it looks like the defence is more comfortable playing with Almunia. I'm not sure getting Jens back right away is such a good idea. His cocky comments arent helping either. If he wants competition, then he should be up for it, instead of running down Almunia in the media who said nothing against Jens inspite of a couple of howlers from him.
