Wenger WILL NOT bring Radamel Falcao to Arsenal 1

Posted on August 29, 2014 by Patrick

Arsene Wenger has admitted that Olivier Giroud is unlikely to play for Arsenal again this year,but has ruled out bringing in yet another striker into the fold, as he has many budding centre-forwards already on the books.

“Giroud had surgery today from a broken tibia and while it went well, he will be out for three to four months, competition-wise,” said Wenger after the Bediktas game. “He will be capable of playing again in the Premier League end of December but it may be the beginning of January before he is competitive at the top level.

Arsenal injury woes NOT club’s fault claims Wenger!! 1

Posted on August 27, 2014 by admin

The words Arsenal and injury have started to go together like sausage and mash, rock and roll or Spurs and sh*t in recent years. After our title challenge was ruined by the amount of players the Gunners lost to injury last season, Arsene Wenger admitted that there seemed to be an underlying problem at the club and that he was determined to put it right.

So with two new fitness and medical experts joining the backroom staff during the summer, the hope was that Arsenal would not have the same problems this time around. But I have already had to write a few articles about our injury problems, with Kieran Gibbs, Mikel Arteta, Yaya Sanogo and now Olivier Giroud all succumbing during the first few games of the season.

Giroud injury ensures Arsenal luck is still all BAD 1

Some might say that Arsenal had lady luck on their side yesterday because we came back against a very strong Everton side after being 2-0 down with less than 10 minutes on the clock, but there was nothing lucky about our goals, unlike the second scored by Everton which should have been chalked off for two separate reasons.

And our bad luck did not stop there either, because a strong challenge from Distin right at the end left our striker Olivier Giroud sitting on the pitch nursing his ankle. Arsene Wenger then suggested, as reported by ESPN, that it did not look likely that the Frenchman would be able to start against Besiktas on Wednesday. That is a massive game and we already have The3o Walcott and Yaya Sanogo unavailable.

Picture to give every Arsenal fan a warm glow!! 2

The new season has hardly got started, with Arsenal having played just one Premier League game so far, but we are already having a mini injury crisis. When I looked the other day, there were six first team players supposedly on the sidelines and there had been no mention of Abou Diaby in any of the matchday squads, ominously.

So when I saw this picture on Arsenal.com today, I breathed a huge sigh of relief. With Mikel Arteta out and still no movement from Arsene Wenger in the transfer window for that tricky deep midfield position, having the lanky Frenchman available again really could be like having a new signing.

Arsenal injury curse hitting again already!! 1

Whether you think it was bad luck, or the fault of the injury and fitness staff at Arsenal combined with Arsene Wenger overplaying certain players, there is no doubt that the crippling amount of injuries the Gunners had to deal with last season had a direct and negative effect on our title challenge.

With a new couple of medical experts recruited this summer, along with a stronger squad and lessons learned, we were all hoping that this season would see the Arsenal treatment room a lot less crowded. However, it is already starting to look like King’s Cross station.

Arsenal ALWAYS have problems with International friendlies 0

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Patrick

Arsenal are a huge club. This would mean that the players we have are regularly selected to play for their respective countries, and we all know there is usually a full round of friendlies after just a few games into the new season. This is often an extremely sensitive issue for many managers. To allow their players to take the risk of injuries or to hold them back and prevent them from representing their nations is often the huge dilemma for many big club managers. What makes this even worst is that international football are often filled with passion and drive. This means players would give it their all for their nations and the injury risk becomes sky high as a result.

Diaby on course to finally shine for Arsenal? 5

Posted on July 21, 2014 by admin

The last time that Abou Diaby was fit and able to make a decent contribution to the Arsenal cause, was nearly two years ago, at the start of the 2012-13 season. The Frenchman started all three of the Gunners opening games and bagged himself a Man of the Match award as we beat Liverpool at Anfield.

But therein lay part of the problem for Diaby and Arsenal, because the lack of options in midfield forced Arsene Wenger to rely too heavily on the Frenchman and that caused his injury problems to flare up again. The 28-year old’s luck then deserted him again with a cruciate ligament injury that kept him out for over a year, making his only appearance as a sub in the final Premier League game.

Arsenal debate – How much will Walcott be missed until comeback? 2

Posted on July 20, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger has given an Arsenal injury update on the progress and prognosis of the recovery of Theo Walcott. And while the news on Arsenal.com is good, with the lightning fast England star getting close to a comeback, it does seem like Arsenal will have to do without him at the start of the season.

Wenger said, “He’s progressing very well. He’s worked very hard during the summer and we expect him to be back in full training at the end of August.

“That’s [return date] difficult to predict. Once he’s back in full training it can be very quick. He has a good basis, which is what he’s working on now.”

Arsenal star ready to make the most of his injury hit career 0

The French midfielder Abou Diaby is one of the longest serving players in the current Arsenal squad. He joined the Gunners back in 2006, from French club Auxerre, and was shaping up to be our long term replacement for his compatriot Patrick Vieira, who had left Arsenal at the end of the previous season.

Right near the end of Diaby’s first season, his problems began. A terrible tackle by Sunderland’s Dan Smith left Diaby out of the Champions League final and possibly out of football for good. Many operations and months later he returned, but his Arsenal career has been plagued by injury problems ever since. His nine seasons have seen just 123 league appearances, less than 15 per year.

Wenger reveals regrets over Arsenal’s Premier League failings 2

They say that football is a game of two halves, which is blatantly obvious, but it really means that things can change very quickly and you never know what is going to happen. This season, for Arsenal, has certainly reflected that. It has been a season of two halves.

At the halfway stage, after Giroud had scored the only goal in a tough away game at Newcastle, Arsenal were sitting on top of the Premier League table and had been for most of the campaign, but the warning signs were there. The French striker was looking jaded and had lost his early scoring form, Ramsey and Ozil were out injured and Walcott would join them two games later, having only just come back from his earlier injury.
