Mad Jens (as he is dearly known by us Gooner's) is certain to leave us in the summer and I wonder what the reaction will be from my fellow Gooner's when he walks out the door?
It took a big man to step into David Seaman's boots when he left for pastures new at Manchester City. Jens was that man.
His character and confidence eased him into the Arsenal goal and in his first season we went unbeaten in the Premiership.
He has made us laugh and made us cry over the year's. His antics since joining us have made him the most spoken about keeper in the Premiership.
The ref's certainly know him. I've never seen, and doubt I will ever see again, a goalie who gets booked so much! It make's you laugh at times.
There are times when I've thought "Jens, u fuckin' idiot!" and there are times when I've pissed myself laughing with his antics.
I still feel he should have been number one this season. I can't knock Almunia for his efforts in the sticks, but I just felt more confident with Lehmann playing.
I won't miss his bitter outburst's at not playing. At time's I've felt he is bang out of order. But when has the big German ever kept his mouth shut? Never!
I will miss his character and when he shove's an opponent or shout's at them for getting to close too him. That made me laugh.
Lets not forget that he was, and is a bloody good goalkeeper, who stepped into a legend's shadow and earned our respect. It can't have been easy for anyone, but Jens had the self-belief to do it. And do it he did.
I'd like to say to Jens good luck for the future. We had more good times than bad. I wish you could have controlled your bitterness but i'll forget that. You did a great job at Arsenal and was a character.
I hope we give him a great send off and I'm sure we will. So sod off u bitter git! But good luck mate.
Keep it Goonerish.....
