Woo Hoo! Arsenal get some GOOD injury news!

The good news for Arsenal on the injury front is not about our Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey unfortunately. We don’t know for sure yet but it looks like the midfielder will miss at least a month after he suffered a similar hamstring problem to the one that kept him out for six weeks earlier in the season.

I am not talking about Alexis Sanchez either although the sounds coming from the club are optimistic that the Chilean may even be fit to face Middlesborough in the FA cup on Sunday after the crunching tackle by Leicester’s Upson seemed to have damaged his knee.

The good news for Arsenal comes from two teams that we are set to face in the near future in the Premier League. The Gunners have an away game at QPR at the beginning of March after just two days rest from the home clash with Everton. And with QPR hitting a bit of form, especially at home, and fighting for their lives it could be a tricky tie. So the news that they will be without their main striker Charlie Austin is a bonus and he has now been joined by one of their scorers from last night Leroy Fer, which is even better.

And we have had a boost for the following game as well, at home to West Ham who have also lost their main striker as Andy Carroll picked up an injury last night that will see him out for at least a month. I don’t suppose we should revel in players getting injured but Arsenal get more than our fair share so any evening up of the scales is certainly welcome.

      Ahaha.. Hafiz at his best.

    2. luvdaguns says:

      no doubt

  2. muda says:

    Let’s stick to our players, its more classic I think. Defending on injury fortune of QPR to beat them?? Is that how low we fall?? Nope please!

  3. ArseOverTit says:

    Desperate article.

    Anyway we may have half the team missing through injury by the time we meet them.

    1. Mick The Gooner says:

      When don’t we have half a team missing?

  4. kam says:

    Woo Hoo? Do you know how sad your article is? You are depending on qpr injuries to beat them?

    And for your information Westham played both matches against Man utd and Southampton without Carol, from what I saw they have managed with out him.

  5. fred cowardly says:

    “Woo hoo” is not the correct phrase to use. It’s pretty sad and desperate. I was expecting Debuchy back or Ramsey/Sanchez totally fit. That would deserve a Woo Hoo.

    Shouldn’t we be good enough to beat QPR, Everton and West Ham without their players getting injured? Anyway, even with those players injured it doesn’t guarantee us wins.

    Not to be rude but this article kinda pissses me off.
    We should be worried about our own players.

  6. Greg says:

    We should be doing our talking on the pitch, the arsenal way and not worrying about other clubs injury problems which should benefit us! Why is that? We should be focusing on beating our rivals and getting 3 points,thats all that should matter! Coyg!

  7. Greg says:

    Sorry to say, have arsenal fc become so desperate with an article this?

    Woo Hoo great injury news.
    Blackburn’s 4th choice goal keeper
    David Martin is out for 5 weeks
    with an itchy finger nail. Phew! Just imagine
    we draw Blackburn next round knowing we
    won’t have to face their 4th choice GK.
    Our path to the final is assured now 🙂

    1. Mick The Gooner says:

      Must be how other teams feel about facing us when they hear Diaby is out.

  9. Mick The Gooner says:

    Don’t care about other team’s injury woes. If we can’t beat a championship team regardless of who’s fit or not, then we have a problem.. We shouldn’t have to care about other teams’ injuries, we should have a team good enough to beat any other team out there.

    Getting a little worried about finishing in the top 4 now.. We’ve been in 5th place or below for a while. We’re only two points off of third and have an easier fixture list than the others, but no one seems to be dropping points and our recent performances have not been convincing.

  10. pubgooner says:

    As Wenger says let the other teams do the worrying and do what they want. We only follow our way, we do not think about other opposing teams when doing our preparation of matches.

    Wenger still living in the nineties. In refusing to analyse the opponents in depth, just does not seem right. With the technological advances now, each game and each opponent can be easily scrutinised in detail and preparations can be based on that.

  11. cescyfab4 says:

    Woo hoo! FYI, Carroll isn’t West Ham’s ‘best striker’, Diafra Sakho is.

    I quickly clicked this article to see the good news – expecting to see a player of our’s returned/returning soon – But after seeing this, I am totally disappointed.

    Whether 10 Charlie Austins and 1 Fer plays for QPR, if we are in the mood, we will sweep them aside with the barest of fuss; same goes for W. Ham.

      Carroll is world class….35m tag and 100k per week…..

      a England International and member of the mighty England Euro Championship team

      world class striker with crisp finishing

      1. mohawk says:

        I have nothing against Andy Carroll – he is EPL quality but let us be honest …….

        A high price tag does not make anyone world class. If I remember right Liverpool spent 35 mil on Carroll in what is now recognized as one of the worst deals in their history.

        Carroll is a good player, but he is miles away from even the most generous definition of “world class.”

  13. pubgooner says:

    Analysing an opponent…cool!
    Cheering (woohoo) an opponents injury…not cool at all!

  14. Andrew U says:

    A little off topic, but does Aaron Ramsey think his luck will change if he looks like a leprechaun?

    Ever since he grew that stupid beard he hasn’t done sh*t.

  15. mohawk says:

    It is fine to analyze a match in terms of players who will be missing from the opposing squad but……c’mon.

    Imagine the gleeful and joyous article that will be posted if an entire opposing team perishes in a terrible accident.

    I only hope this article was offered in a light-hearted but weak attempt at being mildly humorous. Maybe I missed it.

  16. GOONSTER says:

    What a sad, desperate and embarrassing article. Smh.

  17. ger burke says:
