Can Arsenal Injuries Be Considered 'News' Anymore?

The news filtering through that Samir Nasri will be out for a month will come as no great surprise to anyone, because let's face it, none of our players can stay injury free for 6 months let alone an entire season.

For five years plus now the injury problems have just gotten worse and worse and worse with no signs of them letting up.

The news that Samir Nasri will be out for a month after undergoing minor surgery on a knee problem after the Liverpool game now has me convinced that it should be no longer considered news worthy for an Arsenal player to be reported injured, indeed it's highly surprising if we get through a week without at least one of our key players getting injured.

I've just realised why Arsene Wenger is so against these new rule changes. Because we're not going to have enough fit players to even fill a start 11 :(

It's news if your medical team spot it.

If you look at the games that he is going to miss, it's not a bad time for him to be unavailable. Yes it leaves us short, but surely we can cope with the personnel that we have. It gives him plenty of time to recover and get fit for our first real ' test ' on October 3rd at Chelsea.

It's only news because it's an Arsenal injury. How's Modric doing Clive? Have the Spuds medical department spotted what's wrong with Woodgate yet? Hows the £17m crock Bentley shaping up? :)

CR - Surely by now you must realise that "1 month" is Arsenal speak for "2 years, 7 months, 3 weeks and a day"

The news is that RvP and Rosicky aren't injured! At present.

Lol Rocky !!! This injury might wake Cesc up and realise that he is needed on saturday. Surely 5 weeks is long enough to recover from 87 minutes of football over the course of a month ??

Sorry Amos, I just can't believe what you're saying is true. It would be more plausible to suggest that Spurs weren't the laughing stock of Europe.

Ha ha. I'm sure quite a few gooners were getting excited for a while there last night.
