Wenger Stands Firm Over Walcott & England

We always knew that Arsene Wenger has a big pair of testicles, but it seems that the ol' walnut whip has grown another inch or two as the Frenchman puts his foot down over the selection of Theo Walcott for the England squad as the youngster still remains injured.

How many times have we seen Arsenal players missing out on big games only to be called up for international duty the next week ..... and then coming back with injuries?

'Too many times!' I hear you cry, well now it appears Wenger has had enough of it too.

"England? No, there is no way.' Said the big nutted Frenchman

"I can't see a player who has played one half since May going in to vital games for England. It would not be realistic.There is still an inflammation of his back. The scan was fine; he has no hernia but he has pain. He is out of the Manchester United game.'

"If he doesn't play against United how can he play for England? His last game was in June. We are now in August. We wait until he has no pain."

Good stuff, tell the Don to get *****ed

I'm surprised someone as professional as Capello countenanced using him in the U-21s and the full team. Who really thought he'd gain anything from that? Arsenal get a bad rap for not producing English talent, now we're trying but we're being impeded by the English national side. Theo too should have listened to Wenger, I detect an undertone of anger towards Theo too. He might just end up losing his place in our team a la Gilberto in 2007.
Little Dutch
Indeed. Whats the point in going back to the U21's, a side that is essentially meant to be developmental and used to help bring as yet unestablished talent in to the full international side, when he is already a member of the senior squad? It's detrimental to him, to us, and the young player whose place Theo took in the U21 squad.
Gunnerman
It would be the same as us playing Denilson in the reserves and the first team- pointless as he's just won his place in the first team as it is.
Little Dutch
I won't fully explain my personal reaction to your first line, I'll just say I had a big smile on my face. I too was surprised by Capello's position on this and I also think AW is annoyed with Theo. It's such a blatantly stupid thing to do, play a senior team player in the U21s for a pointless tournament.

Jaelle - You're French right? Was that a knowing smile? Huh? lol

Rocky, I'm Brazilian with some French background. A knowing smile nonetheless. :-D

I applaud you on the praise for Wenger holding onto players when they are called to international duty when not fully fit, Mr Paul Mustchin. I think clubs should be able to insist on protection for their players, -- hey even players should have the right to say no ... But I really want to comment because of your sartorial use of "ol' walnut whip" above. Well done to you sir and all who sail on your message...

I don't understand?
