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.

  • 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. 🙂

  • 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.

  • Wenger said in his interview that Gallas could be out for 2-3 weeks with a groin injury. What did everyone think of Walcott’s performance? I thought he made an improvement from previous performances.

  • This is the time when we will miss Johan. I think Sendros will also some mistakes that will cost us dropping points . but today wolcott looked better infact much better

  • one thing else that RVP should really control his temper every time he was chasing a black burn player I was scared that he wont do a stupid foul, and I am sure other teams will notice this weakness and they will try to rise his temper, he should be calm and cool

  • For me Walcott was ok. He should of put us 2-0 up but he screwed up his simple backpass to RVP. Senderos with Toure will be a good partnership.

  • If Gallas is out for 3 weeks he misses the home games against Man City and Portsmouth and the CL game against Prague. Unless we get more injuries the damage should be pretty limited.

    What a silly thing to say, every news report going states Blackburn deserved their point, because they played good football and were the better team in the 2nd half.. Move on and stop being childish. Football is a mans game. Or at least it should be.

  • I definetly hope Jens doesn’t even make the bench for the City game, Almunia will be fine between the sticks but I want to see Fabinaski in action, heck I even want to see Vito on the bench as well. If Gallas is out for 3 weeks then we’re real short in the CB position, Arsene should not have let Johan and Kerrea go on loan, both would have fitted nicely in the CB position. But is Toure going to be captian for the time being? Finally, Mikey if you don’t want 1X vital Arsenal members biting your ass off in the next 24 hours then shut up! If it had not been for Jen’s howler we would have won it. Your only chance of goal was hitting the post. Bunch of thugs, why don’t you do that to Chelsea or ManUre!!! Hoji De Puta…

  • Jens is starting to cost us points, and its worrying now – 2 games in a row. Obviously Wenger will not come out and say it, but I hope he gives Jens a dressing down. 3 pts away at Ewood Park in a tough game would have been such a morale boost.
