Injury problems a thing of the past for Arsenal?

So the Arsenal treatment room may well have been about as busy as Kings Cross station at rush hour over the last few years, but at least Arsene Wenger and the club staff have seen that there must be more to this problem than simple bad luck and they have taken steps to sort the situation out.

Only time will tell of course, but it does look like the manager will have a full complement of players to choose from soon after we get back to business after the current international break. Tomas Rosicky will not be available for some time after he had to undergo surgery on his knee recently, but apart from that we are just waiting for the two England internationals Jack Wilshere and Danny Welbeck.

I have come to take Arsene Wenger’s injury updates with a pinch of salt because he has massively underestimated the length of time that various players would be out for, but the new fitness and medical team do seem to be on the ball and that is where he is getting his information from.

Surely if there was any doubt about Wilshere and Welbeck then the Frenchman would have made plans to cover them, by using the transfer window, so I can only assume that our injury problems are pretty much over. Now just let us get through these internationals and finally Arsenal will have a chance to show what we can do with a full strength squad.

    Lets hope and pray that it remains minor, as much as possible with our new medical team!

    If the crisis in the Ukraine is still going on clubs would risk injury for sure for champions league.

    “Injury problem a thing of the past for arsenal” ………………..Hahahahahahahaha………. We can convince ourselves it’s a thing of the past for all we want………. INJURIES ARE INEVITABLE …….. Pray hard for the likes of Le coq, sanchez , Kos, ozil etc…… Cuz the resultant effect of an injury to any of em is sure gonna be devastating!

      If this is true, then I am sorry for Arsene Wenger for not having anyexcuses why the team have not won in Emirates, and both wins came from Own goals. Loosing to West Ham the opening day was not good to blame Injuries for the Humiliation.
      Four games played, and 5 points lost. Next comes the Reffs, football pitch, and even Ball boys to be used as Excuse.
      So pathetic is the Arsenal situation.

    Chelsea always have really low injury issues, we should of signed Eva Carneiro when Jose Mourinho slated her in front of the whole world

    1. YingYang69 says:

      Yeah, that was crazy. Mourinho flipped altogether and it was the ref who called her over. Mourinho should have blamed himself as he taught those players to play act and so on, I was delighted it backfired. Mourinho blames everyone else on everything going wrong, I hope things like this happen more often with refs getting wise to their ways.

  6. Greg says:

    We can only hope that the injury bug curse, becomes a thing of the past with this new medical staff! All the best towards them in trying to keep our players fit and healthy as the new season progresses! Coyg!

    Our players are too soft and injury prone like theo, walcott, wilshere, rosicky never stay fit full season. Ramsey and ox
    need to improv stay fit full season. Welbeck should start ahead of giroud. He gives us much more than
    donkey giroud. Pace, workrate and creativity but need to work on finishing. Welbeck needs to
    score atleast 15-20 this season but when is he gonna be fit. Wenger lied to us about the long term injury to welbeck to make sure there will be no pressure on signing new striker very clever.
    Wenger’s tactics every season sign 1 good player every season so that fans will be on his side
    then completely neglect other key positions required.

    1. YingYang69 says:

      Giroud gives us work rate and creativity, so it seems you rate pace above scoring.

  8. Durand says:

    I’m curious to see I must confess. Rotation plays big part in avoiding burn out. Hopefully Arsene trusts 16 – 18 players enough to rotate throughout the season.

    However sometimes we are snake bit as a team. Horrendous luck and fragile players usually cost us serious points every year.

    We got what we got, this is our squad, so let’s sac up and go get’um boys!

    Injuries can and do
    happen to any one .
    Arsenals problem is we
    keep too many injury prone players too long.
    Diarby missed 200 games in 5 years. What was that all about?
    Sanogo was bought as an injury wreck and still is.
    Rosicky has been injury plagued all 8 years of his contract.
    Wilshere is badly injury prone but assured of another 5 years.
    Walcott has been injury prone ten years.
    Ox gets injuried too easily.
    16 mill panic buy Wellbeck is injury prone.
    Arteta over the hill and injury prone but get’s a new contract. Eh?
    The upside is that with 8-10 always injured
    the team picks itself.

    Wenger has to go……

    1. josh37 says:

      No. He doesn’t.
      As always he’s accountable for the results of the team first and foremost. We’ve lost one game, as have all the top teams excluding City who are performing exceptionally. A failure to produce in the transfer market and the faith he’s put in the team is now on his shoulders. However, there hasn’t been enough time to evaluate whether that faith was justified or not.

  11. YingYang69 says:

    Hopefully this is the end of our injury problems, this was killing any slight hopes we had of challenging. The people brought in to sort this mess out do look to be doing a fantastic job.

    I see Adelaide has made the CL squad, delighted with this and who says we didn’t sign anyone.

    P Cech, I don’t like the number 33 thing, would prefer if he just took the number 1.

  12. Kempinski says:

    How is it a thing of the past when we were just out of a season plagued with injuries and only four games into what was suppose to be a rossy season we are in the same mess again?how about picking a few more to add to the toll during the international break?depth in any squad is always meant to address such undesirables and shd have bn dealt with reasonably during the transfer window. Fortunately or unfortunately if u like, the club management felt we are good to go and hence we shd have no problem with injury issues..we shdn’t complain about injuries coz even without we are gonna scramble for a 4th spot in the league and the inevitable exit at round 16 of the champions league.even without injuries this squad is not good enough to challenge city in the epl or the likes of barca,bayern and madrid in europe,period!!!for arsenal you can only hope for the best and prepare for the worst season in season out…lower your expectations guys and have a life else you gonna face your grave too soon!
