Wenger Hopes Internationals Don't Disrupt Form

Arsene Wenger has said that he hopes the current international break doesn't impact on the momentum that Arsenal have built up over the last few weeks.

Speaking to arsenal.com Arsene admitted his concern given we have 16 players away on international duty and not only could the break affect our form, but there are the obvious worries about picking up knocks and injuries.

'It is certainly not a joy for me but hopefully it's not a pain. It could be a pain if we lose players through injury. I don't believe it will upset our rhythm, but it's always a challenge to get the focus back quickly but let's hope we can sort that out.'

It's sod to keep momentum when these internationals keep breaking up the season all the time, but the most worrying thing is the possibility of injury. So many of our long term injuries have occured whilst they players weren't even playing for us it's scarey.

What he means to say is that he really hopes nothing happens to Van Persie I suspect! Let's face it, he's on fire at the moment, and without his goals your good run would not looks so great.

To be fair, the International break in October did come at a good time for us, right after the NLD. You could say that game served as a watershed for our recent run of form, right after the break. Let's hope our new found good luck on the injury front continues even with this break.

FCB, every team barring the financially doped City need a key player to click for them consistently. United need Rooney & Hernandez, Chelsea - Mata, Liverpool - Suarez and Spurs - VDV & Modric.

Very true Delta - I'm not going to say Barcelona would be garbage without Messi, but they would miss him so much. That's why they're called "key players" I guess.

So much for calling us a "one man team" then. It seems everyone just has a need to explain away our 'good fortune', these days.
