Wenger Waits On Fabregas Injury

Wenger Waits On Fabregas Injury

So today is Monday, a day that has the letter 'a' in it, and with that comes news of an injured Arsenal player.

This weeks rostered injured player is Cesc Fabregas, and the gaffer says the Arsenal captain could be out for up to three weeks .... or a few days, depending on the outcome of a scan.

Speaking with Wenger said "He has a hamstring problem, I think he will be short for Wednesday, certainly.'

"He is not definitely out, he thinks it is not too bad. If it is a little pull he will be out for three weeks, if it is just tightness maybe he can get away for Wednesday. But we will see. In 48 hours we will have a better view."

Next week's injured player will be Manuel Almunia with over-toned hair highlights, followed the week after by Robin van Persie with melting of his chocolate leg.

I still say that the traditional Friday base jumping and fencing in training just has to be ditched.

Lets hope he is at the very least bck for the weekend. I liked the combo of Diaby and Cesc but I think Wenger should g with Song ahead of Denilson. we looked very vulnrable in defense against Pompey

Rest him against Celtic, play him vs Man united hopefully and then we have a 2 week gap for him to be rested which i assume is international duty.

Has anyone else heard the news that Rosicky may be back from injury sooner than expected (i think it featured in one of the tabloid papers over the weekend), that could be a timely return if Cesc is out - although i guess he'll be in and out of the side to avoid another injury!

With Cesc just making the Celtic game last week, I would have rested him against Portsmouth. Surely we could have 'coped' without him. We will definitely pick up another couple of injuries on Wednesday, and we will go to Old Trafford with a patched up side. Again !

Song would have added nothing against Pompey, they did not attack enough for him to make a difference. Denilson comfortably dealt with anything that was presented to him, but we did look a little vulnerable on the flanks, but that would be down to Gibbs and Eboue.

Almunia does have nice hair indeed. Psych

i wish i had almunias hair ! they are shiny

I don't understand the logic of playing Cesc in a game he could afford to be dropped for, KNOWING he was already knocked, with two such important games coming up. We can risk not having him at the Celtic game but we need him against United but now that doesn't look like a possibility.
24/08/2009 20:55:00
I wish people would stop whingeing about Wenger's decision to play Cesc on Saturday. I'm sure Wenger knew about Cesc's condition better than us and I trust his judgement in playing him. I'm confident Cesc will be fit for the United game, managers always downplay chances of players being fit for the big matches to keep the oppostion manager guessing.
