Ro-sick-y & Edur-hard-o

Ro-sick-y & Edur-hard-o

Arsene Wenger says that Tomas Rosicky will not return to action before March, meaning the Czech international will have not played in over a year.

In one of the most bizarre injury sagas I can ever recall, the experienced midfielder limped out of action in a game against Newcastle last January and hasn't been seen since.

The boss now says Tommy has undergone further surgery and will be back at the club on the 17th of December, but won't play for the Gunners until at least March.

'He's doing rehab at the moment," said Wenger. "He's back here on December 17 and then hopefully we can start to work with him. But it's a long-term prospect - maybe March at the earliest."

In a completely contrasting tale, Arsenal ironman, Eduardo, is set to make an official comeback for Gunners reserves against Portsmouth the day before Rosicky returns to North London.

Dudu suffered what many considered to be a career ending injury earlier in the year and has made a miraculous recovery, especially when compared to the recovery of Tommy Gunn.

The match can be viewed by all Arsenal fans with an Arsenal TV and Arsenal TV Online subscription, and I suspect it will have the largest viewing figures of any reserve match, ever.

What’s up with the poll MOTM Eboue, come on. I know he had rough time last game but this is not gonna make it better. Like he is gonna come this page and all of sudden he will get his moral back. I hope that is the case. Since he is one of the best player in our team. But let’s be serious about the polls for a bit.

Rosicky has been an awful signing and probably one of Wengers biggest cock ups in the transfer market. Atleast Franny Jeffers scored more goals and he was utter dog ******!

I don't believe you can call this a cock up on Arsene's part. Tommy is an awesome player, real Arsenal quality, you just can't prepare for such a freak injury. It's just one of those things.

LG how you can blame the injuris on Wenger is beond me. surly Rosicky did not come with a helth warning and had he been fit last season we would have done a lot better, once he got a run in the team he looked a very good player.

Very good player for 6 million. He took a risk on him because he was injury prone at dortmund too with many hamstring and groin problems

True. Rosicky was awesome when he started for us - just the kind of player we need at Arsenal at the moment. Guile, Speed, tought tackler, hard worker - it's such a shame that he has been injured.

You're right Gunnerman, a fit Rosicky is just what we need at the moment. Nasri on the right an Tomas on the left would be spot on in my opinion.

With both Nsri and Walcott so injury prone and Rosicky still out we could do with a winger in the January window.

Agreed Armory. Of course the DM issue needs to be addressed but it seems we only have one natural winger when we should have at least 3 imo. If we look at strikers we have millions. Ade, RvP, Dudu, Bendy, Vela, Walcott, yet only Nasri who can really play out wide (I think we can all agree the we can't include Rosicky in there any more). Playing Denilson, Diaby, Eboue or Ramsey out there just doesn't cut it anymore.
