Two Out, Three Coming Back

Two Out, Three Coming Back

If you went back and viewed the Vital Arsenal archives I'd wager that most of our articles refer to injuries in one way or another, infact you'll have to go back a long way to find an Arsenal squad that wasn't riddled with injuries.

And of course today is no different.

However depending on your disposition, there's either good news or there's bad news.

If you're of a pessimistic nature, take a seat, grab yourself a coffee and brace yourself. We've got more injuries. Arsene Wenger confirmed that both Aaron Ramsey and Samir Nasri will be sidelined for three weeks after suffering thigh and hamstring injuries respectively.

And oh yeah, Walcott and Denilson will return for the Bolton game with Bendtner being ready to play the week after.

Now if you're an optimistic Gooner who always looks for the silver lining then grab yourself a beer, we've got great news!!!

Theo Walcott and Denilson will be back for the Bolton game on Wednesday with Bendtner returning for the Villa match!! Get in!!!

And oh yeah, Nasri and Ramsey will be out for 3 weeks each.

Big losses. Denilson is a huge boost however I'm waiting for the Bendtner suffers set back headline. I also hope Theo can stay fit for longer than 5 minutes this time around.

I think as long as Tommy Gunn can stay fit then the Nasri loss is acceptable. Ramsey is a cracking young player, but if we can't survive without him for three weeks then we don't deserve to win the title anyway.

I think we can survive without Ramsey and Nasri, but to have Denilson and Theo back is great, as long as we can keep Theo fit ans finally get him playing as well as hes capable of playing. As for Bendtner, im not too sure about him yet. Be good to have an out an out striker back though.

Thats ok, we should be able to cope with that, agree with Trennon regarding Bendtner though, just waiting for him to be back in another 2 weeks. Our physio team really needs to stop massaging the players with claw hammers and machetes.

Must say that I have enjoyed seeing the Ramsey cameos this season and with games coming up against Sunderland and Burnley he may have got given more minutes on the pitch - considering that we have a tricky tie against Porto sandwiched in that time. When I say tricky I mean in terms of judging how many goals will be scored of course! ;) Bendtner will surely have to grab the second half of the season (injury reoccurence permitting, cross those digits people) in order to confirm to Arsene (who knows) and the fans (who are not quite sure) that he belongs in the side for the foreseeable future. Oh and apologies for my rudeness - good to be part of the community, hello to all my lovely fellow Gooners. :)

Welcome herobeard. Mighty fine username too. Might I direct you to the Vital Arsenal forums to take a look at the legendary Eboue & Niko threads, the frankly astonishing "Spurs will Overtake Arsenal" thread, started by a spud no less, and many other genuinely interesting and intelligent debates with the fine community we have here. Enjoy mate!

It will be great to have Theo back lets hope he can stay fit for the rest of the season . He will be looking to force his way into the England squad so he will need good performances and that can be only good for us I believe Merida has picked up a knock thats bad luck on him after his game Sunday

Hi ya, Herobeard (makes me envision Kenny Rogers, for some reason). On subject, these injuries are a source of concern and I see Arsene resting players like Cesc and Arshavin, when he can, in the course of the next 6 games (Bolton, Stoke, and the 4 games, we all await). Cesc just has to stay fit! Along with the 2 CBs
