Does this mean Arsenal injury woes are OVER?

One little phrase used by Arsene Wenger in his Arsenal pre-match press conference yesterday could turn out to be one of the most significant short burst of words in the last few years for Arsenal fans, players, manager and the long term success of the club.

If you think I am exaggerating, you might be right. We will have to wait and see whether Wenger’s throwaway line suggesting that the medical staff have actually discovered the underlying reason for the fact that Aaron Ramsey’s injury problems keep coming back.

And if that is true and the Arsenal backroom staff know how to fix it, we could soon be seeing the likes of Rambo, Wilshere, Walcott, Arteta and many more Gunners actually managing to complete a whole season without missing a month here and a couple more there.

I don’t think we can over-estimate how much difference this could make to our next challenge for the Premier League title. If the reason for the re-ocurring injuries has been found that is. If not, then no matter how big a squad Arsenal have, we will always have periods when Wenger is having to shuffle the pack and use players out of position or rely on those not normally in the first team.

Just imagine if we had not lost Walcott, Ramsey, Ozil and others in the second half of last season. Would Arsenal be reigning EPL champions right now?

    We can only hope but I’m not holding my breath.

    Credit to the medical staff though, since returning from injury, Özil, Giroud, Walcott and even kos boss have looked physically good.

    Well see if that means some hardware in the future.

      Not sure I give much credit to the medical staff, they were here before when we in the shits every season.

      The new fitness coach said that he needed at least 6 months and more likely a year to undo Arsenal’s backward thinking toward fitness and it seems to me we have just hit the point where instead of an average of 8 injuries we have 5 with two players back next week and another three with unavoidable long term injuries that are just part of the game.

      We are on the up in this regard and trust me this will make a huge difference next season, people say it’s just excuses mentioning injuries but Chelsea and City have had very few this season meanwhile Arsenal, Man United, and Liverpool had plenty at the beginning but since all our injuries have gone down we have all risen to the top of the league. (Arsenal and Liverpool top of the form table and Man United simply winning despite playing crap).

    iIt’s QPR tonight, 3 points and Man United come monday… I hope we beat them at Old Trafford: Swansea did it and I cannot see why arsenal can’t. After finishing top four for 18th year running, I hope Wenger reflects on the needs of the team and makes the necessary additions to make us title contenders. We need a player with physical presence like Matic in the mid, an upgrade to BFG at Cb and a lethal striker! 2 players for each position will cover for injuries.

    Players to leave: Flamini, Podolski, (Diaby -contract), etc. We have Debuchy, Bellerin, Chambers and Jenks as right backs and it will be interesting to see what Wenger will do with them

      You mean like he hasn’t for many seasons?

      No disrespect, but are you New to supporting Arsenal? It just amazes me how people expect AW to do the right thing when he has continously neglected/failed to do in seasons gone by.

    When Wenger leaves so will the recurring injuries. Anyhow, he’s talking in Aaron’s specific case and not generally.

    You cannot seriously think that we will suddenly go next season without similar occurances? Old antiquated training techniques will ensure we don’t. Just ask Romford Ray!

    I am afraid we still have some Gunners left on the treatment table. No need to mention their names. But as you have rightly pointed out, Arsenal injuries woes are gradually easing off. Let me announce to say in my hunch that, points are going to be dropped tonight at Saint James’ Park and at the Boleyn Ground. So, the Gunners must be fully ready to capitalize on those dropped points to strengthens their position in the table and enhance their pursuing of the two fellows that are in front of them. Needless to point out that another unexpected dropped points could also take place at the Etihad.
