Flamini Injured - How Bad Is It?

Flamini Injured - How Bad Is It?

Arsene Wenger will be concerned after seeing yet another of his star players suffer an injury while playing for their national team on Tuesday.

Mathieu Flamini had to be replaced in the second half after suffering an unknown injury.

The Arsenal midfielder has been in sensational form in recent weeks, scoring goals, setting up goals and making goal-saving tackles.

It's certainly a worry for Wenger. More news on him when we get it.

On a brighter note, Gael Clichy finally got the recognition he deserves from Raymond Domonech as he made his international debut against DR Congo.

Well as chuffed as I was for Clichy, I don't care now. So ******** annoyed. Flamini's been everywhere this season. It's no coincidence we started to wobble without him in early December. I hope it's not serious. I'm not having the out-of-form and now extremely unreliable Gilberto up against Kaka and Seedorf!

This, alongside with the Milan news that they're 'hopeful' with Gattuso and Pato's recovery, is worrying. Hope, as the news and Goofle said, Mattuso's injury isn't that bad. And LOL Rob don't be so mean! Speaking of Theo, did you guys see his goal? Not bad huh!

Song can back him up if he can repeat his good performances with Cameroon in the DCM position. He's still better than Gilberto right now tbh.

Hopefully it's just a knock, but as Lou says, Song is back in about a week and apparently he's been in fine form in Ghana, and Diaby can play there too (he might see the game better and have more space there too, so maybe he'll dribble less and pass more). Wouldn't it be ironic if Diarra missed his chance to stamp his place in the first team by a month! But I really hope the Flamster is okay- no matter how good any of the others are, he's really formed an understanding with Cesc and nobody works harder, although Ade and Clichy are close if not level in that regard.

Sorry Elbondo, Diaby did NOT play the France game precisely because he had a 'minor problem'... And Denilson's still a couple of weeks away as he was supposed to spend 3-4 weeks out and it's only been a couple since that CC game where he got injured... And for the Blackburn game on 11 Feb, Song can only make it if they get knocked out by Ghana on 7 Feb. The match for 3rd place is 9 Feb, final is 10 Feb...

Now let's hope Mattuso comes back ok and gets fit soon, Diaby ok, Song and Gilberto come back unscathed from their int'l matches this week (in that order tbh).

Sorry for posting short and peacemeal. But this is funny, and in case not all of you subscribe to Arsenal TV Online. Speaking of attitude towards international matches, I really love Gallas' response in an interview. When asked "How are the French preparations for Euro 2008?" our captain said, "Ah you know, we have some friendly games you know. And uh, (big sigh), you know for me it's a little bie... it's still far. I don't think about Euro 2008 because I have to be focused about what I have to do with my club, you know, with Arsenal. On Wednesday I have a friendly game you know, so (lighter sigh) you know, we want to prepare very well to be ready for Euro. But for me, I don't... it's not really important. What is more important is my club." Legend! :D
