Diaby Day

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

End of a season. For some players this will be their final day at the finest ground in the universe, for others a glittering future awaits. I always hate the final day of the season, if we have not won the title it means my hopes fade and die as far as I am concerned it is never over until the fat lady sings.

Barcelona Want Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsay For £50m As Abou Diaby Returns To Football

Who Ate All the Pies at related • 2 views

The Sun says Barcelona are looking to spend £50m on Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey.

The Sun says Barcelona have watched Ramsey ten times this season. And it will be 11 when they comes to see him play in the FA Cup final.

This is, of course, how greedy and charmless Barcelona conduct their transfer business: they bombard the mediawith praise for their target.

Abou Diaby, the glass man who cannot be put back together again. Every time he seems to get fit to play, we hear that he is injured again. There are those who are romantics and think the club are doing the honourable thing by keeping him on the books, paying his wage and hoping that one day he will play again.

Arsene Wenger is Right to Offer Abou Diaby a New Contract

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

During the international break, Arsene Wenger has been asked a whole host of questions ranging from Arsenal's current form, possible transfer targets in January and just why his players seem unable to focus solely on defending when in a winning position.

However, one of the comments made by Arsene Wenger may well have slipped under the radar yet it is this comment that will perhaps once again split the Arsenal fan base.

Wenger: Abou Diaby could get new Arsenal contract - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

Arsene Wenger has insisted that perennially injured Abou Diaby could be given a new contract, provided the Frenchman proves his fitness.

The 28-year-old suffered a reckless challenge in 2006 against Sunderland and since then he has been hardly able to keep himself fit.

Not much going on this morning either. The only real news is the return to training of Olivier Giroud and, get this, it's ahead of schedule. That's right, conceptually this might be difficult to comprehend but what it means is that the player isn't out for longer than estimated but will be back before the time-frame given when he picked up the injury.

Ramsey’s 15th and Jenkinson’s 1st – match review

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 1 view

Many called this game a dead rubber but most were thinking first and foremost who would start and more importantly how to avoid injuries while keeping up the momentum of four successive wins in preparation for the Cup Final.

We weren't disappointed. We started the first half in quite a cautious fashion and Ruddy made a couple of excellent saves, although I thought Giroud should have scored around the 32nd minute.

Injuries have blighted us again this season, although we're in fourth place with three games to play, which in a league of twenty that's not a bad position at all, but injuries I am sure have robbed us of at least two or three positions. I know this is not just this year as we all know we seem to suffer more than a lot of others.

It is well acknowledged that, yet again, the optimism of a promising looking season has been pin pricked by the sting of long term absences.

Morning all.

There was some U21 action of interest last night as we beat Stoke 4-1 at the Emirates. Jack Wilshere and Serge Gnabry played the full game, Mikel Arteta for an hour, and there was 70+ minutes from Abou Diaby. A hat-trick from young striker Alex Iwobi helped Steve Gatting's side come out on top, but from our point of view we're looking at what the senior men did and what it means for the first team.

There shouldn't be *boilk* on a Wednesday but there is and that's just the long and the short of it. Takes me back to my youth, in fairness. The thing about then is that I was young and could deal with this kind of thing. Now, not so much, but still.

I didn't see any of last night's international football but there don't appear to have been any maimings or knee banjaxings to our players, so that's a good thing.

Morning, back to normal now after the bank holiday, and what mental stuff that was in the title race last night.

Liverpool 3-0 up against Crystal Pulis and they end up drawing 3-3. It's like nobody wants to take control this season. We've been out in front and blown it; Liverpool have had a couple of moments where they could more or less have sealed it; Chelsea's little horse keeps dropping points to teams in the bottom half of the table; and it'd be quite tempting to have a little flutter on Man City doing something stupid against Villa tomorrow night.

Good morning. Football is back tomorrow as we face Liverpool hoping to pick up exactly where we left ahead before the Interlull. Six wins on the trot built some rather fine momentum so fingers crossed we can maintain that tomorrow.

The manager's press conference took place yesterday and in terms of team news there's a doubt over Danny Welbeck after the knee problem he picked up during the Interlull, while Arsene Wenger isn't yet sure if any of the quartet that played in midweek at the training ground –Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Mathieu Debuchy and Abou Diaby – will be used.

Capital One Cup action tonight against high-flying Southampton and it's a game in which I expect the manager will rotate his team quite heavily.

With confirmation that Mathieu Debuchy is out for at least three months and Nacho Monreal won't be available again until after the October Interlull, the manager can't afford to risk his senior defenders for this one.
