Manuel Almunia hears dead people.: "ARSENAL goalkeeper Manuel Almunia’s house is being HAUNTED by the ghost of a monk. The star’s wife spotted the ghoul at their swish pad on the site of an old asylum. Spaniard Almunia, 30, has also heard chains rattling and had stereos turning on at full volume on their own." Looks like he and Lehmann are competing for the Goofy Gooner Goalie award.

Shounds like they need to contact TAPS.

Why did I know this was from The Sun, just based on the random capitalization of "haunted"?

Might be time to either move or lay off the LSD.

My guess is that crazy Jens is just trying to spook him and scare him back to Spain.

More award winning journalism from the nation's favourite newspaper.

I guess "swish" must mean something different in Limey English than what it means in Yank English. Oh, and more proof that all goalkeepers are at least a bit odd.

Guy must be on crack and judging by his hairstyle he probably is. Arsenal is in first place in the Premier League so all is good and well. I don't get why people believe in ghosts tho, the guy heard some weird sounds and he thinks it is ghosts. Oh well at least he's not screwed up like Ron Artest.
