PHEW! Ox and Walcott give worried Arsenal BIG injury boost!

Arsene Wenger has today given us the latest update on the Arsenal injury situation. And while we are still as threadbare as a 10 year old tea towel, there are a couple of very positive bits of news for the Gunners ahead of our first return to Anfield since that horrible 5-1 capitulation last season that sparked the beginning of the end to our hopes of winning the EPL title once again.

So while Brendan Rodgers and his players are nowhere near as dangerous as the last time we went there, Arsene Wenger is well aware that our problems in defence and central midfield are far from ideal. So the news on that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is very likely to be fit to start the game is absolutely fantastic and a huge relief. Without him, Arsenal were in deep trouble and would have to bring in a young Gunner from the academy to play along with Flamini in the middle.

The Ox is not training yet and still needs a final test on Saturday but that seems like a precaution. The other good news is on Theo Walcott, who also has a chance of travelling to Liverpool, although the England flyer would only be on the bench. It would be great to see Theo get on the pitch though and it seems that his proper comeback is just around the corner.

    Am more happy about the OX coming back, but i will like walcott to come in to replace alexis when we are 3 goals up. COYG

    1. Wazzzimbo says:

      Bellerin – Debuchy – Mertesacker – Gibbs
      Chamberlain – Flamini
      Alexis – Cazorla – Welbeck

      That’s more than enough firepower to rip pool to shreads and leave the Kop empty.

      1. Mesut O-grillz says:

        you prefer Debuchy at CB over Chambers? Honest question.

        I would take a one nil win, on paper Man United’s defence looked weak but we lost to them. Lets not be greedy and just try to maximise points instead of performances over Christmas period and see where we are in January. Looks at Man U, they have been awful but a lot of lucky and scrappy wins and they are up there. Agree with the lineup.

      1. Mesut O-grillz says:

        It’s been 5 days since we’ve watched an Arsenal match, another 3 days till the next. None of us are okay.

  5. Sumo says:

    It would be really be appreciated if posters on here took time to give new information regrading football. Anyways here a new info-

    Dennis Bergkamp to get a second statue after he was voted as the best Orange player in the last 25 years.

    1. davidnz says:

      Berkamp plays the Orange as well.
      Bit of a musician is he πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Even though it would be great to have theo back I would swap him for kos as it will be our defence that will win or lose the game for us this weekend.

  7. jt says:

    balotelli one match ban, I mean he’s been pretty dire this season but it looked like he might have nicked one against man u if it weren’t for de gea making some ridiculous saves so pretty glad he isn’t going to come up against per this weekend

  8. Mesut O-grillz says:

    how long are you willing to wait? Cuz it might be a while

  9. goonerwineverything says:

    does anyone know whether we have actually signed this “polish vieira” krystian belik or not yet, there is a lot of talk online that we have or are very close to closing up a deal for him he sounds the business probably not what we need now, but could be a wenger special ready for the first team straight away even at just 16 yrs old he looks a belter from what i have seen anybody have the inside track on this one let us know cheers.

    1. mr lean says:

      Believe it mate when it’s announced on

      1. goonerwineverything says:

        yeah that the general rule of thumb i always run by anyway great minds and all that lol
        if announced would be a sound signing i think.

        1. mr lean says:

          Another one for the future still need an experienced DM in January and add a CB as well.

  10. fred cowardly says:

    It would be nice to see these players on the field together playing at least once this season:

    Giroud or Welbeck

    1. rambo says:

      Sad thing is that when all those players are finally fit, because they’ve been out for so long it will take atleast a month for them to get back to their best, then theres also a period where they have to gel in with their team mates… we probably wont get to see our strongest team until the end of the season.
