BANG! Arsenal’s worst fears come true with Debuchy injury!

The injury curse that seems to have been hanging over the Emirates stadium and the Arsenal team in recent years goes on. After already losing our main striker Olivier Giroud to a bizarre tibia injury for three months, we now face about the same amount of time without our first choice right back.

Arsene Wenger has revealed in an Arsenal.com report that Mathieu Debuchy has already had surgery on his problem ankle that will mean the Gunners will not be able to call on the France international until around the turn of the year.

Wenger said, “He has had surgery and will be out for three months. A reasonable delay is three months.

β€œIt all went well, but it can be a week or two earlier or a week or two later, but it will be around three months.

β€œIt is a blow of course, how big it will be we will only know afterwards because it will be down to how well we replace him. We bought [Calum] Chambers for that.”

This is really bad news for the club and for our new summer signing, because Debuchy was really starting to look good in his role as replacement for the long serving Bacary Sagna. As the boss indicated, he does have the former Southampton player Calum Chambers to cover for the injured Frenchman, but it looked like Wenger was grooming the 19-year old to be a central defender and we won’t have any cover there if Chambers is on the right.

So hopefully Hector Bel;lerin will also get some chances at right back, in the lesser games to start with, such as Southampton in the Capital One cup tomorrow. Then if he is needed in a big ga,e for some reason, Bellerin will have gained more experience and feel more comfortable in the first team. Get well soon Mathieu.

      I know we are all riding high after the perfect weekend, and nobody wants to hear me sh*tting on the manager but what the F*ck was he thinking?????

      We had more injury issues then any other team for the last few seasons and now we have 4 senior defenders left, Debuchy out for 3 months, Monreal seems to be out for 3-4 weeks.

      Criminal negligence, There is no excuse for what Arsene failed to do in this transfer window, none.

      If ours was a real club, run by a real board, he would be getting his ass handed to him in a boardroom just about now. But as Arsenal is his fiefdom, he can still smirk at the cameras ansd say things like, “we are a bit short, but we dont need anyone at the moment”

      Shame on you Arsene, nobody should have the right to do this to Arsenal. Shame on the board and all the AKB’s that gave you so much power.

    Oh dear. Apparently Monreal out for long term as well πŸ™ looks like arsenal are paying the price for Wenger’s profligacy in the transfer window

      Actually NO, Monreal is so close to return according to wengers pre-match interview. So calm down.

    I can’t believe the line we lack any kind of depth in is already looking shaky now. If Chambers gets injured we’re majorly screwed. And Wenger is fully to blame for this, waiting till the last few days to inquire about defenders.

    Opinions divided. What do you think? Thumb up 19 Thumb down 8

    Could this be Arsenal’s worst ever season for injuries? Giroud gets hit by a ball…6 months out, Debuchy falls over on grass…3 months out. It’s actually become laughable just how fragile our players are.

    arsenal need to come up with a steel ankle protective armour! we seem to have players with very fragile ankles: wilshere, arteta, ox, gibbs, ramsey, carzola have all been sidelined by ankle injuries and now giroud and debuchy

    The lineup I personally hope to see tomorrow:
    Ospina
    Bellerin – Hayden – Chambers – Gibbs
    Diaby-Flamini
    Ox- Rosicky- Campbell
    Akpom
    Subs: Podolski, Santi, Damian Martinez, Arteta, Wilshere, Koscielny/Sanchez, Mertesacker

      with our current defensive crisis and the upcoming game against the spuds we absolutely can’t afford to risk gibbs… apart from that others are fine.. though i would like to give some minutes to welbz just so that he can score a goal or two and get back his confidence

  7. No Giroud, I'm happy

    “We bought [Calum] Chambers for that.” I bet he would have said the same thing if Mert or kos gets injured to cover his failure to solve our shortage in the back line

    Wenger said he brought Chambers as back up for Debuchy, but who did he bring in as replacement for Vermaelen and back up for our CBs.

    What happens if Koscielny and Mertsacker get injured.?

    Answer: we will end up with a defense like United

    Really dumb of Wenger not getting another defender this summer.

      He knows what he is going to get.He knows he is not going to play CL, and man u aim is fourth spot.But he came anyway, I know it hurts and its disappointing to see quality players like di Maria and falcao sign for man u but it is what it is.and from what I can see di Maria looks happy, i mean he is playing superbly, scoring, assisting and the guy is quality. If we think that because they were defeated 5-3 it is over for them we are wrong, we were trashed last season more than that but we r still standing. I remember what Henery said on BBC at the end of last season, he said no matter how they are struggling right now man u is always man u.

      So we should concentrate more on our team and when we come to our defence,we lack depth and quality at the back thanks to wenger.we should use Bellerin and Hayden more for league games, we should not risk kos,mert and gibbs. When I see the depth and quality of city and Chelsea’s defence I really get upset.I mean who wouldn’t want to have a mangala, kompony, fernandinho, matic on their team?

      DiMaria is happy because he’s gettin”PAID” Thats why he left Real. They wouldn’t meet his wage demands, ManU did…

        You like it or not they got quality, and from what I saw, he looks happy.You can mention so many reasons for his happiness because we Arsenal fans does not want to believe teams like man u can still sign quality.
        to be honest I don’t care who play for them.
