It is not funny anymore is it Arsenal fans? It never was to be fair, but the annual mountain of injury and fitness problems affecting the Gunners and effectively ending any slim hopes we entertained about this being our season has come to a head once again with the news that Santi Cazorla is out for the season.
We have not the club captain and central defender Per Mertesacker yet this season, although the German did finally make the subs bench recently and we have seen the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud miss quite a few games.
There is no way that we can say this is bad luck or coincidence anymore because it happens every single year and even after Arsene Wenger admitted there might be some underlying problem and the club appointed a couple of experts in fitness, conditioning and the medical side of the game there has been no noticeable change.
So the question is, should Arsenal replace the medical team this summer? I am assuming that Wenger’s time is up and there is a theory that his training methods are the reason for our constant injury problems and if that is the case maybe we don’t need a major overhaul of the medical staff but then again a new manager might want to bring his own people in.
How do you think Arsenal can sort out this yearly injury nightmare once and for all?
