Arsenal’s BIG problem at CAM with Rosicky AND Ozil injuries 0

Posted on February 05, 2016 by admin

It feels at Arsenal that our injury problems are like buses in that they always seem to come at once and so we often see a certain position severely weakened as Arsene Wenger loses two or three players in the same area of the pitch at the same time.

It has been central midfield for most of the season but at least the return of Ramsey and then Coquelin and the transfer addition of Elneny has eased that particular problem. Now, though, it looks like the prof could be faced with a bit of a crisis in the Central Attacking Midfield role.

Coquelin comeback hands Arsenal key to Premier League title 0

The worst games of the season for Arsenal so far, ignoring the very predictable problems we had away to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, have come when we did not have the defensive midfield ability of French Gunner Francis Coquelin on the pitch.

But hopefully the Guuners will now be able to avoid results like the 3-0 reverse at Sheffield Wednesday and the limp loss away to Southampton, because Le Coq is back. There were some stats produced last week that showed that having the Frenchman in the middle saw Arsenal concede 50 percent fewer shots on goal and concede a lot less goals.

Arsenal STILL have injury concerns over Alexis Sanchez 0

I do not know if it is because of all the criticism that the Arsenal manager received back at the end of November after the Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez had to limp off the pitch towards the end of the Premier League draw away to Norwich City.

Whatever the reason, Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal medical team appear to be treating the forward with extreme caution as he works his way back to full fitness and a comeback into the first team. It has been weeks since we heard that Sanchez was close to a comeback but as yet there has been no sign of our star man.

Arsenal line up with 3 changes for Bournemouth 0

Because the Arsenal injury list has not really allowed Arsene Wenger to rotate his players much in recent weeks, another Premier League game less than 48 hours after a trip to Southampton was always going to be difficult. So when you add in the fact that we lost our last game heavily and need to bounce back quickly you can see that the Frenchman has a problem on his hands.

I think he has little choice but to make a few changes, to add some fresh legs as well as protecting certain players from injury. Unfortunately he cannot make too many because of the need for consistency as well as the limited options available.

Injuries give Arsenal reserves a chance to impress 0

Posted on December 05, 2015 by Frank

Last season when Arsenal had their usual glut of injuries, we saw Hector Bellerin come through from the reserves to emerge as a star, and we also recalled Francis Coquelin from Charlton which was an even bigger success.

Now we are in this season’s injury crisis, and Wenger is finding it hard to explain why Arsenal always seem to suffer so much. “You could analyse many things: the pitches, the pace of the game, the intensity inside the game has gone up,” he said. “But there are as well mental components, physiological components in injuries, emotions in your private life that can have an impact on muscular injuries.

Wenger – It was NOT a mistake to play Alexis 0

Arsenal are preparing to face Sunderland today without their star player, Alexis Sanchez, who sustained a hamstring injury in last weeks draw with Norwich. Arsene Wenger was severely criticized by the fans as Alexis has had many scares in recent weeks and obviously needed the rest.

Arsenal STILL sweating on LONG Alexis injury break 0

Posted on December 03, 2015 by admin

Despite the football media being full of positive reports about the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez, with most of them saying that he was being sent home to Chile for a week to help with his recuperation but was expecte3d back in time to face Manchester City before christmas, it turns out that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal mediacl team are really none the wiser about how long the forward will be out of action.

Proof Arsenal medical team HAVE improved injury problem 0

It might not feel like it right now to the average Arsenal fan, what with the bad news about Santi Cazorla being set for a long time out with ligament damage and he and Alexis Sanchez making it 10 first team players on the Arsenal injury list, but things are a lot better for the club on that front this season.

As revealed in a report by ESPN this week, the Gunners are not the Premier League club that has suffered the most with injury problems this season. We are not even close actually.

Arsenal get MAJOR boost as Sanchez set for SPEEDY return 0

Posted on December 01, 2015 by admin

There were major fears from anyone that wants Arsenal to do well this season when Alexis Sanchez cut a forlorn figure as he limped off the Carrow Road pitch holding his hamstring. There was, quite understandably, a whole lot of gloom among the Arsenal faithful.

The hamstring problem, if it was as bad as we feared, could have seen the Chilean superstar miss the whole of the festive period and most of January to boot, but the Gunners have been handed a massive boost from the medial scans on our striker according to a report in The Mirror.

Wenger – Arsenal star will NOT be good cover for Coquelin 0

Posted on November 28, 2015 by admin

It was one of the injury problems that Arsenal fans had most feared this season, along with other key players like Alexis Sanchez. But with Arsene Wenger having failed (or chosen not) to sign what we think of as a proper defensive midfielder for years, the role of Francis Coquelin in the Arsenal team was seen as perhaps the hardest to fill.

Now we have three months to get by without the French midfield warrior and there has been a lot of talk about who best to use to fill his boots as well whether the boss will need to sign a new DM in the January transfer window. For now at least Wenger must make do with with the options already in our squad.
