Arsenal - Abou Diaby Is Back!

Arsenal - Abou Diaby Is Back!

News that Gooners have been waiting a hell of a long time to hear is finally here; Abou Diaby is back.

After suffering a horror injury in the 93rd minute of a game Arsenal were crusing 3-0, Diaby once again took to the football pitch today as he took part in his first full training session.

Wenger seemed as pleased as no doubt you will all be. 'It is great news, he had his first complete training session today,' said Wenger. 'He is so happy to play and his performance was very positive.'

Diaby signed for Arsenal 12 months ago and showed just what a promising player he really is with Vieira like displays.

Let's hope his return to the proper action isn't too far away!

Fantastic news! I feel so sorry for the lad, he was really showing some great potential, then Dan Smith went and made one of the worst tackles I have ever seen.

Diaby is going to be our power house who can drive us on. I can't wait for this lad to don the red and white for the very first time.

hopefully he will be back for the one of the cup games, maybe pushing things too fast though, which could be the worst thing to do

When he scored that Goal against Villa it was so Vieira like it was frightening! I have high hopes for this young man!

he's very good.. could be the next PV for us.. i saw him and song take the field against portsmouth last season.. i'd say they were very good in the first half.. but the momentum they created in the first half died down in the second half.. but these things come with experience and i hope to see the two lads up and about in no time fightiing for their place..

I don't think he will be as attack minded as Vieira. People remember Vieira as a holding player but he only did that in his younger days. He was our thrusting force from midfiled as he matured. Cesc has taken that role now so I think Diaby will be more neutral in his game. Not a holding midfielder but as Rocky said, a proper powerhouse! Would like to see Bolton do him, Baptista and gilberto over...good luck!

Diaby was not as defensive as I thought he would be and looked like a wonderful central attacking midfielder with terrific skill and technique...anyone remember that run he made against Birminghan away when he beat five players or that first twenty minutes against pompey away?..unbelievable...I think if we are to play a 4-5-1 in the future him, cesc and gilberto could be a formidable trio...can't wait to see him back
