It must be an extremely frustrating for the Arsenal and England international forward Danny Welbeck to have picked up an injury that looks set to keep him out of action for about a month, because Wellbz was enjoying a good run in the starting line-up and was in good form with goals for club and country flowing.
Arsenal fans really have no idea what the transfer plans of Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board will be when the winter transfer window rolls around in January. I am still none the wiser about what happened in the previous window this summer to be honest.
Even though Arsene Wenger made a complete change to the Arsenal starting line from the weekend draw away to Chelsea in the Premier League, he was still not willing to take too many chances in this Carabao cup game at home to Doncaster, so the visitors were facing a strong Gunners side including Walcott, Giroud and Alexis Sanchez up front.
It looks, on paper at least, like a breeze through to the next round of the Carabao cup for Arsenal tonight, as in Doncaster we are faced with a side languishing down near the bottom of League One and they have not won any of their last six league matches.
When Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain turned down a new contract offer from Arsenal this summer, worth something like £180,000 a week according to some Arsenal transfer rumours, it was a real kick in the teeth for the Gunners and Arsene Wenger who appeared to be bending over backwards to please the England international and persuade him to stay, even moving Hector Bellerin to the left to accommodate the wantaway player.
It could be another nervous and frantic transfer period for Arsenal fans when the winter window opens in a few months, as there is a good chance that at least one big club is going to want to sign our Chile international, but with Alexis Sanchez then just a few short months from being available on a free transfer, the money on offer is likely to be a lot less than the reported £60 million we could have got for the striker this summer.
I am already worried about the next few games coming up for Arsenal, whereas I really should be feeling a lot more optimisitic after seeing the Gunners put on a much more spirited show against Chelsea at the weekend than we have seen so far this season.
As an Arsenal fan I often find myself left fuming by a decision from a referee or one of his assistants which goes against us. I really feel that recent years have been harsh on the Gunners in this respect, both in the Champions League and the Premier League.
