Jens is bad news in Lehmann's terms

Jens Lehmann is not the first goalkeeper that Arsenal have been linked with over what has been a seriously frustrating summer yet the latest word is that he could become and Arsenal player by the weekend- and you know what? - I'm absolutely horrified.

I watched a lot of this guy when he was at AC Milan and the only way to describe his goalkeeping is erratic. He made some great saves one minute and then some of the most inexplicable howlers you will ever wish to see the next.
He has also, to put it mildly, built up a reputation for attracting trouble. As recently as Monday he was sent off whilst playing for Borussia Dortmund in a friendly.

Now as we all know, Arsenal players only have to pick their noses in order to get sent off in the Premiership. So the last thing we need is to bring a lunatic into what is already a heavy persecuted asylum.

I think Arsene has to seriously think carefully about bringing this guy in. It's no use bringing a new, experienced number one if there is a danger of him sitting in the stands for half the season through suspension.
