Walcott Joins Henry

Walcott Joins Henry

Will this injury infestation ever end?

I often wonder if there is a problem with all this new boot technology, or if our training techniques are weakening the players bodies someway, because after 2 years solid of wall to wall injuries, this is starting to get on my man boobs.

Theo Walcott is now set to join Thierry Henry on the treatment table for the rest of the season after Arsene Wenger revealed that the 18 year old forward would undergo surgery on Tuesday that will put him out for the rest of the season.

'Walcott's season is over. He will have surgery on Tuesday,' said Wenger. 'The medical advice is to do it now.'

'He was doing well until he damaged his shoulder, now he is only 50 per cent of what he was before.'

'You can see that now. He was on for only 10 minutes and his shoulder popped out, you cannot play football like that.'

Ah well, at least in the long run we'll have two completely fresh players ready for the start of next season!

Yeah rocky. these injuries are taking a heavy toll of our season. I wonder what the reason is, we seem to have a competent medical team and physio !! Now that everyone seems to be out, you might as well add theo to the list. hope he comes back fit and raring to go, like henry !!

I can't believe the run of injuries we have had. How we have still climbed to 3rd after losing the kind of players we have is astonishing. And people still moan about the fact we can't put teams away. To lose RVP or Henry for a length of time is bad enough, but to lose them both for much of the season is unreal. Coupled of course with losing Ade through a daft suspension and now Walcott is a joke. Gallas, Clichy, Rosicky, Hleb, Freddie have all spent long spells injured this season too. I think we have done f***ing well to still sit in third.

Do you think then that if you lost Bebatov and Keane for most of the season at the same time that you would still be in the lofty heights of 7th?

No, but if you look at our current injury list, it doesn't make for much more pleasant reading than yours... we have still been winning games though (recently). I'd say we have had big players missing for almost every game this season, with King, Berbatov, Keane and Jenas all missing sizeable chunks.

My point is that with our team we have had more than one player in the same position out for long spells. For example, Henry and RVP at the same time. You cannot legislate for that kind of luck. If you had to rely on Mido to be your sole source of goals you would suffer.

agreed... he did only score 15 last year when he was playing regularlyish ......... which means as often as is possible for a fat injury prone lump

Jacky - I dont think there is a comparison. for some games, we've had as many 6-8 players (or more) out due to injury. I agree that 'we all get injuries' , but for 2 years running, it seems to be more than a bit of bad luck for us.
