Wenger: Bendtner To Miss Start Of New Season

Arsene Wenger confirmed that Nicklas Bendtner will miss the start of Arsenal's 2010/11 campaign through injury.

The Arsenal gaffer reported the news after Arsenal's 4-0 win over SC Neusiedl 1919 in Austria last night.

Speaking with Arsenal.com, Wenger said 'Bendtner will not be available for the start of the season,'

'We don't know [how bad it is].'

In truth it comes as no great surprise. Bendtner never looked fit throughout the entire World Cup, indeed it seemed as though the Danish top brass were nursing him through matches.

Great. Another injury prone player. He was out for a long spell last season and now maybe again. What is it with us and injuries?!

I worry about Bendtner for next season, it'll take him a while to find his stride. A World Cup, added to the fact that pre season is the worst time for a player to pick up an injury, would suggest he won't be on song until later in the year. I hope the supporters will be understanding about this, but I also rather hope Xavi gets fired out of a cannon. Hope can be a forlorn thing sometimes....

Walcott may get to play because of this development. Both very different type of attacking players. Bendtner does prevent the opposition left back from venturing too far foward better than Theo currently and can drop more easily into midfield to support our build up play. Theo can latch on to a through ball better than Nicklas and is a decent finisher when given the chance.

How much this affects us will depend on how quickly Chamakh settles into things and how long we have to wait on RvP. If Marouane gets going quickly I think we'll be fine with JET getting some chances to shine from the bench. Otherwise we may have a tough start.

My main concern is that this is the SAME injury that kept him out of the side for our season run-in, and the SAME injury that troubled him during the WC for Denmark. The medical team at Arsenal are starting to worry me, as the SAME injuries keep affecting the SAME players on a regular basis. Gazidis claimed in his Q & A session recently that the treatment of injuries by the medical team was being " addressed ", given our recent record. This injury, coupled with Djourou limping off AGAIN, is not filling me with the utmost confidence unfortunately.
Cockney Rich
Cockney Rich, a recurrence of an old injury is the most common kind of injury for a footballer. Lets tale any player from a rival team who has been injured lately - Ledley King, Michael Essien, Drogba, Torres, Hargreaves..etc, are all suffering from a recurrence of old injuries. I understand what you mean about the record of our medical team but surely this is something not peculiar or applicable only to us.
Deltaforce
What I was driving at Deltaforce is that last season in particular, players who had been out a few weeks with an injury, only lasted about 20-30 minutes on their ' comeback '. They all limped off with a recurrence of their original ailment, thus calling into question the quality or nature of their treatment.

Wenger also mentioned we may be missing Cesc AND RVP for the first game :|
