Arsenal WILL have Jack for Chelsea but who can face Galatasaray? 0

Posted on September 29, 2014 by admin

It is definitely a great piece of news for Arsenal, as the latest injury update reported by The Mirror reveals that, despite turning his problem ankle again in the north London derby draw with Tottenham on Saturday, Jack Wilshere has not got a big problem and will be fit for the trip to face Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend.

With Arteta and Ramsey already ruled out, that is a huge boost for Arsene Wenger but it does mean that the England international will not be risked against Galatasaray in the Champions League group game on Wednesday. At least that is a home game which the Gunners should dominate, but who will fill the central midfield positions?

Arsenal sweat on scan that could see Debuchy out till January!! 0

If Arsenal get the bad news that they and Mathieu Debuchy are fearing tonight, after the France international has an exploratory examination on his ankle, then it looks like the Gunners will be without our new right back for the rest of this calendar year.

That would be terrible news and rotten luck for the club and the player. I am sure that one of the reasons for him wanting to move from Newcastle United to Arsenal was to be at a bigger club and to experience more of those Champions League nights that he enjoyed while playing for Lille. And if he needs an operation, he will miss every single one of the group stage matches, after being sent off in the play-offs. Great.

Whether Arsene Wenger has been forced to make use of the free transfer system because of the mounting Arsenal injury list, or whether the Frenchman had this idea in mind all the time, I neither know nor care. I just hope that the reports are true.

According to various Arsenal transfer rumours, including the Metro, the defensive crisis at the club has persuaded Wenger that he needs another central defender and there are a few available for free because they are currently without a club.

Arsenal vs Manchester City: Who should start for the Gunners? by SE

Arsenal face a stiff home test when the defending Premier League champions visit Emirates stadium this Saturday afternoon, as both sides look to get back to winning ways after a not-so-impressive start to their respective campaigns. However, the task might not be as easy as a Sunday morning stroll in the park, as both sides are plagued by injuries to some key personnel. As far as Arsenal are concerned, how should they line up against a strong Manchester City side?

With Ramsey and Ozil doubts, what’s Arsenal XI for Man City? 0

Posted on September 10, 2014 by admin

In some ways it has been a typical international break for Arsenal, with two of our best players coming back from their various countries carrying injuries that could harm the Gunners’ chances. It could be worse, because neither Mesut Ozil or Aaron Ramsey are thought to have long term problems.

But with all the problems Arsene Wenger had to cope with on the injury front last season, I expect the Frenchman to be cautious and so would not be surprised to see the German and the Welshman miss the home game against Man City on Saturday. In which case, what will be the Arsenal starting XI to face the champions?

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.

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.

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.
