Let’s take a close look at Arsenal Women’s squad depth for the upcoming season

Looking at Arsenal Women’s squad depth

As the new season of the Women’s Super League fast approaches, I wanted to take a look at the depth of the squad Jonas Eidevall and his team have assembled together. With injuries being a huge issue for us last season, losing many key players to ACL and other injuries, Eidevall and his team have looked to bolster the Arsenal Women’s squad and done a pretty good job of it.

With a few players who were missing due to injuries last season now back in training, things are starting to look positive at the Arsenal Training centre, but as a coach or a manager, you must be prepared for the worst. With injuries being inevitable in football, it’s always a task to make sure you’ve got a good squad with a lot of depth.

Reports came out yesterday via the Lionesses official Twitter page that Lotte Wubben-Moy would be replaced for the upcoming Women’s Nation League tournament as she’s picked up an injury. With the club not announcing it yet, she could have just had a knock but if not, luckily Arsenal Women have brought in some new faces this summer and look to have some real depth in the squad.

With a lot of games to play this season, rotation is going to be important, but with the quality throughout the squad, Arsenal Women’s fans need not worry. Having one of the strongest defence and attacks in the league this season, Arsenal fans will be hoping we get to see a little bit of everyone throughout the year.

Being able to trust your bench is massive, and knowing that no matter who you take off, they can be replaced by someone just as talented, will be a huge advantage for Eidevall and his staff this season. It looks like Eidevall has enough depth for every player to be competing for that starting spot, which will hopefully bring the best out of all the players and leave us covered if any injuries occur.

We obviously hope we can go through the entire season without any injuries, but at least we know that if someone does get injured or if the squad needs rotating, we’ve got it covered.

What’s your thoughts Gooners? Do you think we have enough depth in the squad this season?

  1. Even with Leah, Laura and Teyah sidelined for the season the squad we now have looks to be the strongest for a decade.
    Let’s hope the injury gremlin leaves us alone this year.

  2. A very good squad that’s evenly balanced. Only lacking decent Manager to take them to the elite level. That Jonas Eidevall is clueless. His player management is quite pathetic to be fair. Why he was hired has me dumbfounded. Arsenal had a world class Manager in Joe Montemurro and the club let him go to Barcelona. Montemurro left Arsenal in great shape, only for The Clueless Rookie Jonas Eidevall to slowly piss it down the drain. Arsenal busted their guts for 3 years to sign Japanese World Class/ World Cup Winner Mana Iwaduchi. Jonas Eidevall was clueless in how to play her. With a player of such pedigree and World Class quality, a half decent Manager with half a brain would have built a team around Mana Iwaduchi. Arsenal have just signed Kyra Cooney-Cross. That young lady will regress under Jonas Eidevall. Just look at what happened when attempting to qualify for Champions League football. What a debacle that was. That could only happen under Jonas Eidevall. I’m afraid to say, there’s more disappointment to come under Jonas Eidevall’s lack of player management and coaching abilities

      1. Know a hell of alot more than you do. Been there done that as a professional football player in Europe, as well as a Head Goalkeeping Coach for Japan’s men’s and women’s International level since 2008 to this present day. Just stood down as the men’s Goalkeeping Coach to concentrate more towards the development of young junior players in Japan, but still staying on as the Head Goalkeeping Coach of the Japanese Women’s International team. So I do happen to have a football brain in my head,,, meaning, to be a fully pledged Goalkeeping Coach at International level, I have to hold a Level 5 UEFA Coaching Badge. That may be a little beyond your understanding. I’ve been to every men’s and women’s World Cups, Olympic Games, and Asian Cup Tournaments since 2008,,, that includes every qualification matches for the above tournaments and friendly International matches. As for a certain player in general, I’ve been associated with Mana Iwaduchi since she was 14 years of age, helping with her development as a football player. Not being rude to you Valerie Jacobs, but what are your coaching credentials? Just politely asking
