Welbeck injury blow to work out PERFECT for Arsenal?

One of the few medals that Danny Welbeck did not pick up with his former club was one for winning the FA cup, so the England international must have been looking forward to this weekend ever since he scored the winner at Old Trafford in March and condemned his former Manchester United team mates to another season without a trophy.

So the news revealed by Arsene Wenger on the Arsenal website yesterday will surely have come as a bitter pill for Danny to swallow. It appears that the original prognosis on his recovery from some bruising to his bone was too optimistic and he has been ruled out of action for the trip to Wembley.

The manager said, “Danny Welbeck is out still. He will not be fit for us or for England. That’s basically the only injury we have at the moment. Everyone else is available. Arteta is back in full training. We have no new injuries from the weekend.

“He would have been short anyway so I was prepared for that. When I saw Roy Hodgson last we were both confident that Welbeck would be available but we called the FA yesterday to explain that his bone bruising at the knee was not healed and that he absolutely had to rest.”

So apart from Welbeck the injury situation at the club is very positive indeed and that bodes well for the Premier League title challenge to come next season. In fact the news on Welbeck is pretty good for Arsenal as well because he will have a nice long break this summer without the extra few weeks with the England team.

With Alexis Sanchez coming back late from the Copa America, Danny is the clear choice to take over that left forward role and that could turn out to be vital when we kick off the league games early in August. We saw this season how damaging a bad start can be so while I feel sorry for Welbeck about missing the FA cup, I reckon it could be great news for the Gunners.

    Dear Lord, may Aston Villa never forget to play like a small club. May they remember it is their obligation to lose to big clubs like Arsenal.
    Amen!!! (((((((((Ya’ll say amen too!!!))))))))))))

    I see so many ads of beautiful girls, very beautiful girls on the page and I really love their faces, particularly the Russians. I was wondering if I could have the number of any of them, perhaps you could put in a good word for me.

    Yours round the clock,

      Guys, I know u’ve all been wondering why Muffdiver hardly comes around these days. Please pray for his soul. Our very own Muff has been domesticated by a Puerto Rican chick he met recently and muffdived. Poor dude has lost so much weight.

    Wenger on Alexis playing at Copa America: “I would just like to wish him good luck and that he comes back without any injury.”
    I wish the same for every Arsenal player without exception.
    Get well soon Danny, you will be an Arsenal legend someday.
    And I don’t really like people bashing Yaya Sanogo, the kid is in his first year in England and he’s only 22, he still has time to prove what beast he really is. I believe that Le Prof saw something special in him and he will work magic with him this summer.
    Anyway, let’s bring the FA Cup back home to where it belongs, to the Emirates stadium.

      Lol he is only 22??? I am 21 and I am much better than he is. Self praise is nothing but at 22 years in today’s football, being at a top club, he should be much better. Just a pity that it is so hard to make it pro in the country where I am (Jamaica) since the opportunities and facilities are limited here.
      I played 5 years for my high school starting at 8 grade, being the youngest on the team at that time and I am now playing for my college as well.

        You can’t be serious. There is a ridiculously huge difference between playing against players like John Terry compared to you playing against a defensive cb partnership of John and Terry who are studying sport at college.

        Unfortunately I’m not 21 anymore. I wish I were only 21 though.

        Look at his scoring record before moving to arsenal and you’ll see what Wenger saw in him.

    The biggest game of our season. I am feeling sorry for Welbeck. If we manage to beat Villa and crowned FA cap champion, then he deserve special credit as united away was our biggest hindrance in the the road to FA cup final. Welbeck has also never won an FA cup even with Man U. I he was fit, I am sure he would have definitely got chance to play the final.
    On the Final, we need some hero. The whole team also has to play very well. The first thing is defenders has to be very solid.
    Lets Wneger decide whom to start.
    Every one in this team is playing well and deserve chance, so whoever plays, I am OK untill they give their 200%.

    We know Welbeck can come up with the goals, just look at his recent England run. I hope he has a prolific season next year and silences his critics. The fact he was good wrought for Ferguson’s United should speak volumes.
