While Arsene Wenger and every Arsenal fan in the world, except perhaps for the embarrassing ‘celebrity’ motormouth fan Piers Morgan, will be hoping that Aaron Ramsey is fit and ready to return to club action when the Gunners travel to face West Bron after the international break, it could be the exact opposite for Joel Campbell.
The Costa Rican international forward probably feels quite happy with the way he has performed after Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Ramsey on the Arsenal injury list, especially in the Swansea game where he capped a good game with a goal, but I bet he is hoping for at least one more game with the first team to show what he can do.
If the Welshman is fit enough to face the Baggies, however, I wonder when Campbell might get another chance. The FA cup does not begin until after the festive period and assuming Arsene Wenger decides to go for it and we win the next Champions League game at home to Dinamo Zagreb, then the Gunners side for the trip to Athens to face Olympiacos, where Campbell had his most successful loan spell, will be full strength and he will not be on the pitch .
In a way I hope the young striker does get another chance to play against West Brom because we have seen signs of some real talent and the more he plays the more comfortable he will feel in the side and the better he should perform.
Do you think Campbell has done enough and will he be in the Arsenal squad and even the Arsenal team for the rest of the season and in the coming years?
