How easily we forget such heroes of the moment eg. like the much maligned Jans Lehman. Yet in the space of a year, May 2005 and April 2006 he alone saved us from bad performances and humiliating defeat Two penalties. One against Paul Scholes at Wembley, and the other against Riquelme - Villareal at El Madrigal. Do we remember him for this ? I don't think so, but AW did, which was why he had such faith in him, and we can't fault him for his belief, however we think misplaced sometimes.
I think most of us have pretty fond memories of Jens. He was a complete nutter and in his last season he was prone to mistakes but in his first few seasons he was as good a keeper as there was in Europe (with the exception of Cech - pre-head injury).
My own memories of Jens were of watching him with a constant thought in my head along the lines of "I hope Jens doesnt nut someone!!!" But I never for one moment doubted his ability as a keeper. One thing is for sure, he commanded his area with ferocity.
