Nasri Looking To Return For West Ham Match

Sami Nasri is just one of a number of Arsenal players to break a leg in recent history, but thankfully this leg break appears to have been the least complicated to mend as the player now is aiming to take to the field against West Ham, meaning Samir will have only missed 8 league matches of a 38 game calendar.

The diagnosis from the club had always been of a positive nature and indeed, for once, this appears to be the case.

'I'm due to rejoin the Arsenal team this weekend, or at the start of next week and I think I will be back in action against West Ham on the 25th.' said the Frenchman.

Nasri impressed the Ashburton faithful in his first season at Arsenal, the highlight of which was a brace in the 2-1 victory over Man Utd on home soil last year. I'm sure we're all looking forward to seeing what he can do in this new set up.

I very much doubt he would make the West Ham game and think it would be a mistake to include him. Given that's he's had no pre season, I'd imagine an hour or so against Liverpool in the CC would be more realistic. I couldn't see him coming back into the Prem picture until Wolves away.

Luckily we haven't really missed Samir so far this season. I'm not sure if AW see him playing in the midfield three or the forward three, but with TW coming back too he's gonna have a bit of a selection headache! Which is always healthy. When do people see Vela making any sort of impact?

we havent reall missed him coz of thomas' return and what an impressive return it has been IMO. Wonder how or if we are going to sort out Thomas' contract. he has shown what a great player he is when fit, but can he stay that way and will the club take that risk. Or will they risk loosing him to a rival coz of his fitness record? Ipersonally prefer a fit Thomas to samir, more pace, and bite about him, better on the ball aswell. prob same in terms of shooting ability, both very good. will be interesting to watch!! Theo is not in AW midfield plans, he will go upfront it is all about an education for the lad at the moment.

I'm not sure if we need to play him against West Ham though. LD's right, it'd be better if AW cautiously lets him come back into the side. If we nobody gets injured during the international break (touch a big piece of wood!) except perhaps Ramsey (nursing a minor back problem according to Toshack), we can afford to let Samir come back slowly ala Tomas. Yeah Navydave, where's Vela? He must play in the Carlos Cup!

I was talking about Samir in midfield or upfront, Theo playing there is quite scarey to be honest! ;-)
navydave
Samir is likely to come in, late on in games, to freshen things up in midfield;...show Diaby how to be effective in his assigned role. But he is still 3 weeks away, imo. Personally, i see a desirable 'poblem' developing for Arsene as more of our "new signings" start to come back to full fitness. Hope Vela is not frustrated out of this team with only CC games to look forward to. Phew! Better Arsene than I.

If Denilson is out for much longer, I'd prefer Nasri to play instead of Diaby. He offers more solidity, more defensive protection, and more creativity than Diaby. When Denilson is fit again, I wonder what Wenger will do.
