It looks as though the likes of Kevin Davies, Ditmar Berbatov, Nicholas Anelka & many more are set for another year of mayhem after Jens Lehmann extended his Arsenal career by a further year.

As well as his excellent goal keeping abilities, Lehmann is affectionately know as ‘Mad Jens’, and lets face it, there is a very good reason for this.

At last count Lehmann had been pulled up and yellow carded on no less than 8 occasions this season, not bad for a goalkeeper.

Wenger broke the news, “Lehmann has extended for one year,”

“He is a 100 per cent professional. He gives something to the team as well in the dressing-room if it is needed and I think he had a decent season this season.”

There has been a split camp over Jens this season, but crazy antics aside, I think he’s just as good as any keeper available on the market today.

  • haha i see this as good news but i still feel this summer we will need to go after a keeper because i surely feel this coming season is lehmans last with us. gordon from hearts looks like a great keeper and so does the CSKA lad

  • yea we still need a good keeper coming in but Lehmann signing is very good news he will give us much needed experience at the back at that really is priceless

  • I`m glad he had stayed on, but I do wanna see Almunia given his chance, he has never let Arsenal down, has stuck around for a few years now.

  • The Crazy bug*er is still with us! Just don’t step on his feet when a corner is coming in! I also wish Almunia was given more time in goal – if he was allowed to get a bit more confidence, we wouldn’t need a Jens replacement next year.

  • i don’t always agree with his antics, but that aside, he is experienced, he took his country to the world cup semi’s and he is entertaining afterall.

  • it is utterly amazing that he has been carded 8 times this season. haah how many times does the goalie have to sit out a game because of “excessive yellows” haaha. power to ya jens

  • I think he’s got a split personality. Off the pitch he seems the nicest man you could ever wish to meet, on it he is more deserving of the nickname “Beast” than Baptista.

  • fantastic, another year of hasselhoff between the sticks. I personally would like mad jens to do a rendition of the hoff’s ‘hot shot city’ in the centre circle before the final game of the season. On his greatest hits album, it is number 7, and is particularly good… »»Arsene Knows««
