Trio Set To Miss First Six Weeks

Trio Set To Miss First Six Weeks

Arsene Wenger issued the grim news that Arsenal will be without Gael Clichy, Phileppe Senderos & Abou Diaby for at least the first six weeks of the season.

The news comes as defensive worries worsen with the departure (and inevitable departure) of Sol Campbell & Ashley Cole.

However, Wenger has found the silver lining as the players were due to be out longer than this latest new suggests.

Diaby's injury is the most severe, but Wenger is optomistic.

"In fact the news is quite good for Diaby, Clichy and Senderos,' Wenger said. 'But the first [of these] players will be back in October, not before."

"He is in front of what we expected for him," said Wenger. "But it is November at the earliest for him. he added.

Wenger also gave news on Freddie Ljungberg, but there's not much to worry about as he will be back within the first couple of games of the new season.

"Ljungberg is doing well," said Wenger. "He may not be there for the first game of the season but [he will be there] early around the start."

this is a bit of better news, the trio being back faster then they expected to be, this is awsome news. But we still need to sign a player or two incase we do happen to get any more injuries, do you agree? Perhaps bring in the likes of yaya or baptista.... both are affordable and wolud fit into the squad quite nicely

Just the one (Rosicky), unless you count the permanent capture of Alexandre Song (which I don't!). Diaby is going to be great for us, it's a shame he's had this setback early in his career, but at least he's still young.

lets hope that these players arwe going to be comin back even sooner then this is saying, but if they don't it aint going to be a disaster due to the fact that we have quite good cover anyway and AW can make any player adapt and be world class in near to any role on the field of play,
