Jens Out For 2 Weeks...Or Is He?

Jens Out For 2 Weeks...Or Is He?

Arsene Wenger has reveald that German goalkeeper Jens Lehmann injured his Achilles tendon after he helped Germany to a 2-1 win over England.

After 2 blunders in as many league games for Arsenal, and another brace of mistakes against for Germany last night, including letting Lampard score his first England goal for a year, after being beaten at his near post.

In an interview with Arsenal.com Wenger said: 'Jens is out and he will miss two weeks, I think. Maybe more - I don't know.

'He is going to see a specialist in Germany on Friday. He had this injury before but it got much worse.'


But, has Lehmann really suffered an injury? Or is Wenger trying to drop him without admitting it?

I have my thoughts, I'm sure you have yours, so do share...

I guess he has to leave the big German with a bit of pride. Whatever the reason the right decision has been made.

whatever the reason, conspiracy or not, it's the right time for Almunia to make his mark.

It is also possible that he is injured but it is convenient in someways. If Almunia does really well it maybe hard for Jens to get back in again always assuming that it is Almunia who gets the nod against City. Fabianski against Prague maybe?

This is blatantly a cover up. Jens obviously needs a break to regain some confidence. Quite frankly I think a period out of the side will make him improve again like it did when he was dropped before. Hopefully though Manuel plays like he did in the Carling Cup last year and we’ve got a great and younger keeper on our hands.

Maybe the injury he's talking about is his mental, or brain, injury. Wenger did say he had the injury before, but now it got worse so maybe Arsene sent him back home to the land of Freud to see a therapist.
