Weekly Photoshop – Jens Lehmann


A day late due to some WordPress gremlins, but following Arsenal’s decision to re-sign their former goalkeeper on a short term deal, Jens Lehmann is this week’s theme.

Ostensibly Lehmann is there to provide cover while Szczesny and Fabianski are out injured but if Manuel Almunia continues to perform as he did against West Brom at the weekend, then Jens may find himself in the first team sooner than he thinks…


Lehmann's contract demands were simple - £40K a week and his own private toilet.


'Though some would say Lehmann had a head start in the crazy stakes, playing in front of Squillaci and Koscielny was enough to drive anyone mad...

It’s still unclear whether Lehmann will play any games, but I think most people secretly hope he will. Mainly for the fact that he’s pretty damn entertaining and we’d be in for a treat.

Wenger Losing The Plot? An Interview Exclusive



Crazy Wenger

Crazy Wenger

Two defeats on the trot for Arsenal, in which five were conceded and none scored. Life is most certainly not rosy at the Emirates and Wenger is feeling the heat.

Here at the Sportboys we are sick of hearing the usual boring old Match of the Day post-match interview with Arsene where he tells us that he believes his team has the mental strength and commitment to pull through and that *insert Northern team* were too rough with the poor old Gooners. Therefore, through the use of a few contacts, we got access to Monsieur Wenger ourselves and we were a little surprised to hear what he had to say. Following a fourth consecutive year of falling out of the title race before the final run-in, is Arsene finally losing the plot?




Hello, and welcome to The Sport Boys – a blog written by two people with a mutual love for all things football.

Expect to find regular posts on everything from analysis of the daily goings on in the Premiership to who you should pick as captain for your Fantasy Football team this week. As we develop the blog we hope to start including podcasts, guest features and plenty more besides. As well as football, we may also focus on any interesting stories from other sports.

On a final note, if you’re wondering what the deal with the name is, take a look here:

Thanks for reading,

The Sport Boys.
