Wenger won't blame Jens (AUDIO)

Wenger won't blame Jens (AUDIO)

Arsenal dropped two points at Ewood Park as goalkeeper Jens Lehmann couldn't shake off the demons of his previous Premier League outing. After scuffing a clearance last week against Fulham which gifted the Cottagers' a lead, the German number 1 allowed a tame David Dunn effort from long range to slip through his hands and hand Blackburn a share of the points.

Robin Van Persie had given Arsenal a scrappy lead in the first half, but manager Arsene Wenger doesn't want to blame his keeper.

Of course Wenger won't blame him to the filthy baying media he has too much class to publicly blame his own players (unlike Jabba the Jol who'd blame his own mum to save his skin) but expect to see Manuel between the sticks v Citeh.

agreed niko, Wenger has to much class to say, 'Jens is a nob' to the media. But secretly I think he is furious with him, like we all are at the moment and although he will naturally talk to him, I think we may see Almunia starting next weekend.

I think we will defiantely see the spainard on weds in the CL. To give Jens some time to clam down. But I just cant see AW benching Lehamnn. Though I think he should.

clam down lol gk! Lehmann needs to stop being so shellfish!

I thought the CL game was this Weds day. I was wrong. But I still dont see AW dropping Lehamnn for the City game. And nik I meant to write calm down but i messed it up bad. It does sound funny though. :)

The poll to our right will be something similar for the Blackburn game I guess!
19/08/2007 19:05:00
yep. just change Fulham into Dirty Thugs

Blackburn are a f%ckin' awful side and if they are proud of a thuggish performance like that then that sums them up. They'll get nowhere in Europe playing like that cos you can only get away with it in the PL. Despite the mistake and dropping of points, I definitely sense something different in our team, the desire to want to be up for the fight but also not retaliate and play our football. Can't wait til Diaby and Gilberto are back but bad news about Gallas.

***** off Hughes and his team but how long is Gallas going to be out for??
