We Got Adebayor La La La La La

 We Got Adebayor La La La La La

Arsene Wenger says that Manu Adebayor will return to the squad to face Blackburn on Saturday.

The Togo striker hasn't played since Boxing Day when Arsenal beat Watford 2-1 away.

Gunners fans were gutted after the dancing (you've seen that third eye on Soccer AM) hitman (there's a new nickname for him!) had found some form after scoring some important goals for the Gunners.

Luckily for Arsenal Van Persie found some form, Henry returned and Baptista well and truly annonced his arrival in English football with 4 goals against Liverpool.

Having so many in form strikers is excellent but it does give Arsene Wenger something of a selection problem, albeit a good problem.

Speaking to Arsenal.com ahead of Saturday's game Wenger said: 'Gallas was close to coming back but he had a little setback again.

'I don't think we will see Gallas for another two or three weeks.

'Adebayor is back available again but Emmanuel Eboue is still not completely fit for Saturday.

'We still have Ljungberg out, Gallas out, Eboue out, but everybody else is alright.'

Wenger also confirmed that Lauren is back in training after suffering from a minor toe injury.

'He looks better, yes, but I think he will be a bit short for Blackburn because he only rejoins normal training on Friday,' said Wenger.

Gallas says that if he isn't allowed to leave Arsenal in the summer then he will start scoring own goals. Arsenal have reacted by taking number 10 off him and giving him number 3. Arsenal are demanding that they get a mobile phone-loving, money grabbing, nasty little boy as his replacment.

Losing Gallas would leave Arsenal with a massive hole to fill but if we get Cole back I hear he is good at filling holes!

I'm not sure if I should be cringing or laughing at that comment Iceman. In all seriousness.... losing Gallas for anohter 2 or 3 weeks is a massive loss, espically considering we have United in just over a week! Arsenal players don't do minor injuries do they? If they're out then they're out for aaagggessss! Gallas was supposed to return against chelsea a month ago!

this injury to gallas is mysterious to say the least, westl, he wont be going to a declining serie a anytime soon, i really wanted him available for the united game though.

well id just like to echo the sentiment of this article, in that there is a good problem in selection upfront. so much of a problem, that everyone commenting on this article has chosen to focus on billy, and seem to have forgotten that its good to have manu back :). jokes apart, how serious is this injury to gallas? does anyone know?
