Official team news and preview of QPR V Arsenal

Once again I am really surprised at the Arsenal team sheet handed in by Arsene Wenger for this Premier League away game against QPR. THeo Walcott once again is left twiddling his thumbs on the Arsenal bench, with Danny Welbeck alongside him.

Perhaps just as big a surprise is the fact that Per Mertesacker comes staright back into the team. It is Laurent Koscielny who the under fire German replaces, with Gibbs and Bellerin keeping their place in the full back positions.

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.

Arsenal must NOT have “fear factor” against QPR

Arsene Wenger spoke earlier about tomorrow’s Premier League game against QPR and was of course asked about our opponents, and you can see the full interview on Arsenal.com. Whereas a lot of the focus was on the Arsenal squad, such as the injury situation and the form of Giroud, Gabriel, Mertesacker and Krystian Bielik, there was a little bit about what the manager expects at Loftus Road tomorrow.

Should Arsenal give Alexis a much-needed break?

The latest injury news today should cheer up Arsenal fans, as it has been revealed that Francis Coquelin is likely to be ready to play against QPR tomorrow, but also the fact that Aaron Ramsey has returned to the fold after a few weeks enforced rest.

Ramsey was the star of last campaign and has failed to reach those heights this season, but hopefully he can now improve again as we come down to the end-of-season games. He can hardly play any worse than Alexis Sanchez at the moment. In the last seven games our Chilean star has looked out of sorts and has failed to hit the target in any of them.

Arsenal in BIG danger from Coquelin injury?

Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans should be crossing their fingers this week and hoping that we get some good news about the injury suffered by our young French midfielder Francis Coquelin yesterday. But when was the last time something went our way on the injury front?

Our bad luck was in evidence once again during the game, firstly with the accidental clash between Coquelin and Giroud that broke the young player´s nose and left him bleeding and in pain, and then when the ball hit him in the same spot after he had been patched up to carry on. Maybe that second blow will prove critical as well, although Wenger admitted that he is still not sure whether Coquelin will need an operation or not.

The changes Arsenal SHOULD make for Everton match

Okay I have calmed down a bit now and am now looking ahead to the Arsenal game against Everton at the Emirates on Sunday. It is going to be a tough one as we are coming off the back of a real downer of a game against Monaco, while the Toffees will be in a great frame of mind after breezing past Young Boys of Berne with a 3-1 win giving them a 7-2 aggregate victory. Jealous? Yeah so am I.

Arsenal star hands Wenger MASSIVE trophy boost!

I am not going to go into the reasons for Arsenal almost certainly having to go another season without the coveted Premier League title, suffice it to say that there are about as many opinions on the subject, from AKBs and AOBs alike, as there are fans of the club.

But that is the way it is, so as well as another fight for a top four finish, Arsene Wenger could really do with getting his French mittens on another piece of silverware this season, for the sake of the players, the fans and his own sense of worth.

It is time for Jack to prove his worth to Arsenal

‘Shere Willpower is necessary in order to overcome the obstacles of injuries and off-field distractions by Demitri

The beginning of something special
Jack Wilshere burst onto the scene for Arsenal, in 2008, at the age of 16 years and 256 days, breaking Cesc Fabregas’ record of being the club’s youngest player to feature in the league. Fast forward 7 years and it can be argued that Wilshere is yet to fulfil his potential, with Arsenal fans encouraging Daily Mail rumours of a summer move to his boyhood club, West Ham. Struggling to find form between suffering from long term injuries, Wilshere has been unlucky in his attempt to follow Fabregas’ steps, in a rise to the top at Arsenal.

Why Arsenal MUST risk Wilshere against Crystal Palace

It looks like there is a good chance that Arsenal will have our Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey back quite soon, perhaps even as soon as the Premier League match at home to Everton on March 1st. But with the way his injury problems have recurred already this season, I am sure that Arsene Wenger will be very cautios with him.

So we cannot rely on Ramsey being able to feature in key games like the Champions League game away to Monaco or the FA cup clash away to Manchester United. We are also entering a period with a busy schedule of fixtures, so Arsene Wenger will want to have as many first team players available as possible and that means that he needs to get Jack Wilshere back in action as soon as possible.

Arsenal need to sort themselves out!

Arsenal have consistently suffered more injuries than every other team in the Premiership, and the case of Aaron Ramsey pulling up with his third hamstring strain of the season has yet again highlighted the Gunners ongoing problems with muscular injuries to their players.

According to the former Wales assistant coach Raymond Verheijen firmly lays the blame on Arsene Wenger’s shoulders. “There are two solutions. Either Arsenal sort themselves out or Aaron has to go to a club… where training is more balanced,” said Verheijen.

“It’s one or the other. The medical staff can only cure the problem but football coaches cause the problem because they are responsible for football training sessions.”

Wilshere comeback is perfect timing for Arsenal by Sam P

It is just typical of the injury situation at Arsenal that we appear to have lost two key players after the Leicester game and that they were both coming back from injury problems when the next one occurred. Fingers crossed but it does not seem to be too big a problem for Alexis Sanchez and that would be a real boost ofr the Gunners and the rest of our season.

Arsenal’s injury curse strikes again!

On a day when Arsenal fans should be celebrating our elevation back into the Top Four (and back above Tottenham) we are instead discussing a woeful performance against a Leicester side that are rock bottom of the Premier League. The Gunners DID manage to hang on to take the barely-deserved three points but yet again we have seen a couple of injuries to knock us off our stride.

Arsene Wenger is particularly worried about Aaron Ramsey, who only managed to stay on the field for seven minutes after coming on as a substitute for Theo Walcott. “It’s the disappointment of the night,” Wenger said on TalkSport. “To see him come off after seven minutes is very difficult.
