Hey Jens Lehmann

the minute you came off your line
I could see you were a man on a mission
a psycho goalie!
big afro, or a perm?
you look like David Hasselhoff
You make me squirm
now let me get right to the point!
Samuel Eto fished you, that we all can see..
Hey Jens Lehmann!!!
Red card, early shower for thee.

I feel for Arsenal. A final vs. Barca (and make no mistake, this years team is an excellent vintage - they will certainly be remembered as greats) is hard enough without playing 70 mins with 10 men and your second string goalie. Barca weren't the breathtaking force that I thought they'd be - although if this is due to arsenals discipline or them misfiring I can't say.

I disagree with Johno that 'this was arsenals big chance' - they've got to the final, which they've never done before - surely progress on the path to winning it. They help the whole league out - by being finalists they keep our national coefficient high and safeguard our 4 CL places for years to come.

I thought Henry could have been more gracious in defeat, but then again I’d be bitter too. His comments about not seeing anything from Ronnie are true, but not very sporting. Noteworthy factoids:

First ever CL final Red card Lowest ever possession from a team in the CL final (or highest ever, if you flip it) Rijkaard joins an elite list who have both played in and managed a team that has won the CL. (Stevie G is next) Now the big question is, will Henry stay? If he doesn’t, what does that do to Arsenal?

  • Will Henry stay - YES HE WILL, see above! Wahoo - what does it mean for us? Dont know - hopefully a good signing or 2 that Chelsea dont poach. We have a lot to catch up with Chelsea but it starts here.

  • I agree with Johno. Arsenal are fucked.

  • Oh, one other thing. The actions of the Barcelona players begging for a red card. Disgraceful. I hate that much more than diving.
