If you hope to beat Barcelona at the Nou Camp then you need all your players to play out of theirs skins .... for us, it would be nice if we just had all our players to play.
Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, Arsenal have will be missing no less than 5 key players going into this crucial match in Spain tomorrow, after Alex Song joined William Gallas, Andrei Arshavin, Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie in the treatment room.
Arsene Wenger confirmed the defensive midfielder will not make the trip. 'It was a bad surprise this morning because he had a scan yesterday afternoon on his knee and he has an inflamed cartilage. We have to wait and see how bad it is but he is completely out for the squad for tomorrow's game.'
The gaffer also reported that Gallas' cover, Sol Campbell is also a doubt for the quarter final second leg. 'That is a decision I have to make after speaking to him tomorrow, today he was still not completely available although he managed to get a warm-up. To go into such a game you must be completely fit or not play at all.'
Le Boss has often refused to blame injuries for lack of success in recent history, but I fail to see how injury lists like this can not be partly, if not mostly responsible for our struggles. How would Man Utd cope without Rooney, Vidic, Carrick, Valencia & Nani, Chelsea without Drogba, Terry, Lampard, Essien and Malouda, Barcelona without Messi, Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta and Toure?
Despite these injuries, we still find ourselves on par with Barcelona in the quarter final of the Champions League and only 3 points behind Chelsea in the league, that in itself is a miracle, for us to actually go on to win some silverware needs something greater than a miracle, infact maybe only an intervention from god himself could helps us now?
I do hear he's a Gooner.
