Arsenal Star In International Injury

Arsenal and Sweden's Freddie Ljungberg suffered a calf injury in Sweden's 2-0 win over Spain.

The seriousness of the injury is not yet known but it has been claimed he is 'highly doubtful' for Sweden's next qualifier on Wednesday.

I've not seen the game but apparently Freddie limped off in the second half.

If the winger is not fit to play for his country he will return to his club to continue with treatment in hope he will be fit to face Watford next Saturday.

While Ljungberg is one of our most experienced players, infact the longest serving current player, his position is one that we have fairly well covered and while it's never nice to have an injured player, his absence would not be the end of the world.

Well yeah we do have other players so it wouldn't be the worst, but still not good.

The appropriate FA should be made to pay compensation? The club pay the wages why should they be made to suffer?

It may actually benefit u+s cause it'll give Beast a bit of a run. But I'm still livid! Imagine if that was Gallas/Henry! Imagine if one of them got seriously injured and couldn't play for a month. Why can we not just play club football without any interruptions? In the off season, play internationals. End the club season in early April/ late March. Play international friendlies and cups between May and July. Start the club season again in late August. Done...

no it wud be "chelsea the Wonder years" watch as the mighty blues go over 50 years without winning the league, this DVD will make you laugh and cry at the same time as heroes such as peacock and stein fight in vain for the league championship. This tale of woe includes electric fences and near bankruptcy as the blues struggle to stand on their own 2 feet as a premiership force. Empire Rates it "unmissable" Director steven spielberg informed us "I was goin to include a scene where a russian Billionaire saved them from going out of exsistence but it was too unbelivable to suggest the mighty Chelsea would need help to win a title"

I think I've seen that DVD, it's called 1955-2005 Chelsea's Golden Jubilee. Back to the article, after all those nice things I've been saying about internationals this goes and happens. You could make an omelette with the egg on my face.

Stick Hleb on the right and give Theo a run on the left. Got to give the kid a chance to start at some point. Give Rosicky a rest after the internationals. What better opportunity to give Walcott a run than Watford at home??

he is past his best anyways, When was the last time scored? Theo is garbage and he will be another pennant!! Baptista will start sulking when the frost starts and will want to get back to sunny madrid! Admit it internationals are ruining your chances of a top 4 finish??

COCKeril: the reason internationals used to give us a few problems is because we have so many of them, infact unlike your team we have loads and loads of internationals, not just a few random squad players for an underperforming England team. As for Baptista, i don't think we'll see any sulking, its always good to have brazilian internationals, Gilberto (the world cup winner, remember? Oh yeah, you havent had many of them in your team before, have you?) has been there a while and not moaned, why Baptista? Walcott is a fantastic talent and will prgress under Wenger, don;t think he would do so well under Martin Jol (lets ask everyone here and see who he'd develope better with, Arsenal or Spurts) Ljungberg, well yes you are right, hes past his sell by date now, but still a useful squad player, probably better to have the Sweden captain as a squad man than a south korean, no? Atleast a top 4 finish is definatly on the cards though! What's spurts target for the season?

Chelsea are obviously going to be the yardstick for rival teams because they are currently champions. If we used Bolton or Everton who are currently above us as a goal I'd be pretty concerned as to our ambitions.

The fact is whatever Chelsea fans say, they know in the back of their minds that those titles weren't earned. They can deny it all they want, but it rankles in their subconscience. Of course at first they were so desperate for glory they forgot all about it, but in years to come when Roman's gone and their standing outside the grove with collection buckets, they'll know how hollow it all really was.

Little dutch? I don't think Chelsea fans will ever believe winning the tital is hollow, that is a poor statement to make, Chelsea fans will be supporting some other club when he leaves, you should know that. When we get promoted this year and then again the following year, maybe they will jump to the carlisle, we will have more than 1 person commenting on our site and you will all fear the might of carlisle
