Arsenal star Smith-Rowe out for three months after undergoing surgery

It is hardly a surprise to Arsenal fans that Emile Smith-Rowe will definitely not be going to the World Cup with England this winter, and it has now been revealed that the midfielder has had an operation and will not return before December at the earliest.

There is no doubt that Arsenal have a very talented player on their hands, but the problem is that Smith-Rowe has always suffered from intermittent injury problems, and even out on loan at Sheffield before breaking into the Arsenal team he had to have his playing time carefully managed.

His injury problems have continued into this season and also with Martinelli and Odegaard excelling on the field, he has only managed 3 substitute appearances, so even if fit he will still find it hard to get a starting spot, but if he can recover and return to fitness after the World Cup then he could be a crucial part of the second half of our season, including the knockout rounds of the Europa League.

The report from Arsenal stated: Following a significant setback at our Premier League match against Manchester United at Old Trafford on September 4, and after further specialist consultations and discussions with our medical team, Emile underwent surgery to repair a damaged tendon in his groin.

This successful surgery took place in London in the past few days and Emile’s rehabilitation programme is already underway. We are hopeful that Emile will return to full training in December.

Arsenal should have enough quality cover for his midfield position for now with Vieira and Odegaard now fit, and we can only hope that ESR comes back fit and well to help us later in the season….

  1. If that guy overcomes this injuries, he will be a beast on the pitch. Hopefully, we’ll have him fully fit to help in our push for honours in the second half of the campaign.

  2. Hopefully Reiss Nelson will look at this as an opportunity
    to claim a spot in the squad!! Maybe this will also trigger
    a growing longing for signing Mudryk in jan ?? If we are
    still top in desember or well within top4 we can surely
    spend some money to enhance us even further. Come back soon and even better ESR !

  3. ESR is out for this season….I prefer if he comes back in the middle of this season….he was on light training before the opp. and ESR will be an a very slow recovery so this problem be healed good and not recur
    Hay guys…I didn’t know this

    14 Oct 2019 · Arsenal are the only team to have had tea with the Queen and five other amazing facts you never knew about the Gunners.
    2) SOLO STATION
    the Gunners are the only football club to have a London Underground station named directly after them.
    3) MILAN MAGIC
    November 25, 2003 – Inter Milan 1-5 Arsenal. March 4, 2008 – AC Milan 0-2 Arsenal.
    No one has matched the feat since
    4) DYED-IN-THE-WOOLWICH
    The original meaning for arsenal is defined as “a collection of weapons and military equipment” and that explains the name of the club.
    In October 1886, David Danskin and 15 other munitions workers set up the club and named it after the Royal Arsenal complex in Woolwich, South-East London.

    They were cannon makers and that also helps to explain the club’s Gunners nickname and badge.
    5) BROADCAST FAVOURITES
    Their home game against Sheffield United on January 22, 1927 was the first-ever English league match to be broadcast on the radio.
    Ten years later, a clash between Arsenal’s first team and their reserves was the first football match to be televised live, on September 16, 1937.
    And then on January 31, 2010, they faced Manchester United in the first match broadcast on television in 3D.
    6) SIX OF ONE, HALF A DOZEN OF THE OTHER
    The Gunners were involved in the highest-scoring draw under the stewardship of legendary manager Herbert Chapman.
    A grand total of 27,241 piled into Filbert Street – the old home of Leicester City – to witness a thrilling 6-6 draw on April 21, 1930.
    I wonder if PAT would allow this post

    1. there is no proof that the Queen was an Arsenal fan,in fact she was more likely a West- Ham(according to Windsor staff to whom she told) .the only reason she invited the Gunners to Buckingham was because,she had been booked to open the Emirates stadium but didn’t make,so to make it up to them,she invited them.

  4. I don’t know if The Queen was an Arsenal fan, but I do know that in a 1970’s interview Princess Anne said that she and Charles ‘watched The Gunners whenever they were on TV’

  5. It’s no 4) that interest me most

    That means the first Arsenal players were David Danskin and 15 of his mates
