Don’t worry Arsenal – Anderlecht have even BIGGER problems 0

Posted on October 22, 2014 by admin

It is understandable that many Arsenal fans are so concerned about the poor run of results so far this season, with just two wins from eight Premier League games and an early exit from the Capital One Cup, that there is very little confidence that the Gunners can come back to north London with three Champions League points tonight.

And this belief has not been helped by the injury to the Colombian reserve keeper David Ospina, meaning that rookie Martinez is set to make his Champions League debut because of Wojciech Szczesny being suspended. But even though Laurent Koscielny has joined Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil, Mathieu Debuchy and others on the sidelines, Arsenal’s problems pale in comparison with those facing our opponents Anderlecht, as revealed in a Daily Star report.

At least Arsenal’s injury situation is looking better! 1

Posted on October 18, 2014 by admin

There was not a lot of signs of improvement from the Arsenal players on the Emirates pitch against Hull yesterday, with a last gasp goal from Danny Welbeck only enough to rescue a point. Our bluntness in front of goal matched with our lapses at the back was typical of what we have been seeing from Arsenal so far this season.

But there is a strong argument that a lot of our troubles have come about because of the long injury list. Any team is going to miss players of the calibre of Walcott, Ramsey, Giroud, Koscielny and now Ozil, but if there was not much encouragement on the pitch yesterday, the situation off it is more promising.

Walcott, Gnabry and Diaby hand Arsenal BIG boost 0

Arsene Wenger is playing it as safe as he can with the Arsenal players returning from injury it seems. Hopefully the Frenchman is listening to his medical staff and the new fitness and conditioning expert Shad Forsythe and hopefully this will lead to the current injury problems not being continued throughout the whole season.

It already seems to be getting better and the under 21 game against Blackburn Rovers last night produced a huge boost for Arsenal and our chances of having another successful season. Theo Walcott, Serge Gnabry and Abou Diaby all came through their parts in the game unscathed and looking good.

At last Theo Walcott is finally approaching full fitness and he managed to come through the first 45 minutes of the Gunners reserve match last night, but after so long on the sidelines he is not expecting to be rushed back into the first team.

He said after the game: “It was good, nice to get a little blow out, it’s a been a hard, long, nine months, and first I’ve got to say a massive thank you to all the Arsenal medical team because without them I wouldn’t have been able to do what I’ve done.

Ramsey and Walcott hand Arsenal Champions League boost 1

The next two games for Arsenal in the Champions League, first away to the Belgian champions before Anderlecht come to the Emirates two weeks later, give the Gunners a fantastic opportunity to take back control of our qualifying group. And the chances of that happening have been given a massive double boost by Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott’s imminent return to the Arsenal team.

In his latest injury update on the website, Arsene Wenger explains that neither player is quite ready to be included in the squad to face Hull City in the Premier League on Saturday. But the Gunners should have Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky available to alleviate the loss of Mesut Ozil and hopefully help us get back to winning ways and moving back up the EPL table.

Walcott to play for Arsenal against Hull – and Gnabry back too 0

With all the injury problems that Arsenal have had to cope with already, just seven games into the Premier League season, it was a boost for anyone interested in the Gunners just to see Theo Walcott and Serge Gnabry back in full training this week. But it now looks as though we could be set for a much bigger boost.

According to a Metro the Arsenal boss is actually preparing to play the flying England forward on Saturday, when Steve Bruce brings his Hull City side to north London. They are sitting just one point and three places behind Arsenal in the EPL table.

FULL round up of Arsenal players at internationals 0

Phew, Arsenal fans, the international games are over for another month at least and at least the last few games passed off without any more Arsenal players getting injured. A good job really because we were already having a bit of a nightmare, with no less than four Gunners suffering an injury problem of one kind or another.

Time for Arsenal to give up on Ozil? 0

Posted on October 13, 2014 by admin

There is a theory that the Arsenal and Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil may never play for the Gunners again. According to media reports, the 25-year old is thinking about calling time on his career with Arsenal and leaving the English Premier League altogether.

Ozil is already set to miss two or three months with the knee ligament damage that caused him to be sent home from the current international round of games, so if the Arsenal transfer rumour in the Daily Mail is true, Ozil may have played his last game for Arsenal.

It was looking like this international break had come at a great time for Arsenal and that we would be in a much better position at the end of it, with some key players like Theo Walcott, Mikel Arteta and Serge Gnabry due to be available and Aaron Ramsey much closer.

And with the fact that Arsene Wenger and his coaching staff would finally have some time on the training ground to work with the rest of the squad, I was feeling pretty positive about the two week round of international games. But what a difference a day makes.

At Last! Arsenal injury problems easing to give Wenger options 0

Posted on October 04, 2014 by admin

With an international break to follow after this weekend’s round of games in the Premier League, Arsenal have just one more game to get through before the squad starts to look more like it should and Arsene Wenger has almost a full complement of players to pick his Arsenal line-up from.

It’s a shame that our one game is away to Chelsea, though, because we could have done with the likes of Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey available for what could be our toughest game of the season. But these things happen and you have to deal with them. There is some good news for Wenger ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge, with the news on that our Spanish left back Nacho Monreal is fit again after his back problem.
