Were any of us really surprised to hear that Arsenal have already got a couple of injury problems to cope with? After just one properly competitive game of the new season, the Gunners must travel to the intimidating atmosphere of Istanbul to face Besiktas without two of the starters from Saturday's narrow win over Crystal [.
It could be dangerous to play with Monreal and Chambers against Palace this weekend News is coming out that Koscielny has sustained an injury that will rule him out of this weekend's game and could see him miss that all important game against Besiktas midweek. But without Koscielny for the game against Palace, we will [.
Injuries and Arsenal are two words that been synonymous with each other in recent years. And last season reached a whole new level, with the Gunners losing more player days to injury than any other Premier League team. About twice as many as our big rivals, and there is no doubt that it affected Arsenal's [.
Wenger is building this squad with versatility in mind by KJ David Ornstein reported that Calum Chambers had a medical with Arsenal yesterday and it seems like the young English defender will be an Arsenal player for a fee of around £10 million. But the reason we've brought him in is not because he can [.
It might sound a bit daft to be talking about Jack Wilshere running out of time to get his Arsenal career back on track, as the lad is only 22-years old and has missed so much time due to a string of injuries, but he certainly cannot afford to stand still for too long, or [...]
Matthieu Flamini is in a confident mood ahead of the new Arsenal season, and reckons that if the Gunners can get over our injury problems there is no reason why we cannot win more trophies in the coming season. In the transfer window all Arsenal fans are hoping for new arrivals, but surely if we [...
Why this is Jack Wilshere's season by AT It's been three seasons now since Wilshere suffered an injury that would rule him out of an entire year of football and would lead him to have surgery that could've potentially ended his footballing career. Now he's played for the majority of the last two seasons but [.
It looks like the awful run of luck that Arsenal had with injuries last season has carried over in to the World Cup finals in Brazil, as yet another Gunner has picked up a problem that could jeopardise their role at the tournament. This will surely be a worry to Arsenal fans, not just about [...]
A Possible Reason for Arteta's 2013-14 Season by KC So I've been an Arsenal fan my entire life, but I did not follow the Premier League heavily until 2011. By this time, Cesc was 4 million pounds emptier and Nasri evolved into Ca$hri. It was also the same year Wenger decided to bring in Mikel [...]
Injuries eh, Arsenal fans? How sick have we become of hearing about Arsenal players picking up knocks, whether it be while playing for club and country, it would be easy to think that lady luck had it in for the Gunners, or that they are made of glass. Recent years r4eveal a catalogue of long [...]
The Arsenal boss may not be too happy about this, but it looks like Roy Hodgson is planning to take a risk on the fitness of Gunners midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Following England's undeserved defeat to Italy in the opening group stage game, Hodgson knows that he needs to win, or at the every least to [.
It is great news for England and, obviously, great news for the Arsenal youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. After picking up a knee ligament injury which threatened to wreck the dynamic 20-year old's summer in Brazil, Chamberlain has been hard at work in training, trying desperately to get himself fit and ready to help his country progress [.
This is not the video of the Arsenal and England striker Theo Walcott taunting the Tottenham fans with his 2-0 gesture as he was carried round the Emirates pitch on a stretcher, which was a quality moment for us Gooners. Unfortunately, what had seemed like an innocuous twist of the knee turned out to be [.
Arsenal Wrap Up Deal For World-Class Fitness Coach by A.T. Following the £42.5 million capture of German playmaker Mesut Ozil last summer, Arsenal fans will be very optimistic going into this summer's transfer window. With so many top names linked with a move to North London, it certainly does seem as though Arsene Wenger is [.
Although Arsenal Football Club will be well represented at the FIFA football extravaganza that is the World Cup finals, the Gunners are a bit thin on the ground when it comes to England. Theo Walcott was already ruled out through injury, of course, but it looks like we might not see too much of Jack [.
It was after all the injuries to various players had finally seen Arsenal lose their place at the top of the Premier League table, that Arsene Wenger admitted there was a problem. And with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain possibly having to miss the World Cup and the start of next season, the subject is fresh in out [.
Every Arsenal fan, but especially the ones that are England fans as well, should be crossing their fingers and hoping for some good news on the medical front today. Because today is the day that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will undergo a scan to determine what damage he incurred in last night's international friendly.
Every time I wrote an article during the season just gone, bemoaning Arsenal's terrible luck with injuries, and other things like referees and cup draws, I was accused of being biased, blinkered and a bad loser. Well here is the proof that although I may be a bad loser and biased, I am not blinkered.
Arsenal fans were given their first big injury scare of the summer today, over two weeks before the World Cup finals kick off in Brazil. And it was Aaron Ramsey who is the subject of concern, despite the fact that our young Welsh star has not had to train or play since the Gunners lifted [...]
The England manager Roy Hodgson has told the world that his Brazil-bound squad will be picked on the players season-long form rather than the last few games of the season, and it is expected that Arsenal's Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be named in the early 30-man squad list. Neither of these youngsters have [.
Arsene Wenger has just one Premier League game left before the big one. I/m sure that the Frenchman already has a pretty good idea of his Arsenal starting line-up to run out at Wembley and try to finally add to that FA cup the Gunners won in 2005, but there will be some players hoping [...]
It was a sad sign of things to come for Arsenal, when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had provided the assist for our first goal of the season, was ruled out after just one game and then spent around five months in the treatment room. And if that was disappointing for the team, it was even more [...]
The good news for Arsene Wenger is that he is not going to find it difficult to pick the Arsenal starting line-up to face Pepe Mel's West Brom at the Emirates on Sunday. The bad news is that the reason the Frenchman will find it so easy is because he has not got a lot [...]
The England coach Roy Hodgson has assured Arsenal's very own Jack Wilshere that he will be on the plane to Brazil in June. Hodgson said in a report in the Daily Mail that the squad will include players that got England to the Championship and new faces are unlikely. He said: 'Wilshere has been training [.
With all of the injury problems that Arsenal have had to cope with this season, it was starting to look like the curse of Abou Diaby had rubbed off on the likes of Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil. But the tall French midfielder is still way out in front in the race to [...]
I'm sure that a lot of Arsenal fans thought they would be seeing a lot more of the young England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain once he had returned from injury. I know that I did. However, with all the problems the Gunners have had this season, I could also understand why Arsene Wenger was cautious in [.
I can understand and sympathise with a lot of Arsenal fans, who have become so frustrated with the constant injury problems that have hampered the playing career of Gunners midfielder Abou Diaby. Only 20 games and no goals since the summer 0f 2011, means that many fans will have forgotten what Diaby is like.
It is about time that Arsenal started to have some good news on the injury front and it is very timely as well. After a punishing two hours of football and penalties at Wembley, the Gunners had to dig deep against a physical and hard working West Ham side, so Arsene Wenger will be glad [...]
If only Arsenal could have had a slightly smaller injury list this season, who knows what we could have been fighting for now. One of the worst aspects of the Gunners' injury problems this season has been losing so many of our key players in the middle of the park at the same time. So [...]
No matter what you think of Arsenal's season and where the blame lies for Arsenal slipping from a Premier League title winning campaign to the usual fight for fourth spot, Arsene Wenger and the Gunners have five league games and an FA cup final to navigate and they need the fans fully behind them. A [.
Everyone at Arsenal will certainly have received a boost by getting into the FA cup final with a penalty shootout win over Wigan Athletic, but there is now a Premier League run-in to focus on and the Gunners could really do with another boost from some of our injured players. And we may even get [...
I am not sure if it is just me, but judging from the comments from Arsenal fans over the week I don"t think so, but the crushing despair and worry that followed last weekend's tame display at Everton has slowly been replaced by excitement and growing confidence in the last few days. I really hope [..
Are you sitting down Arsenal fans? Because I have a shock for you; Arsenal have got big injury problems for this weekend's crucial FA cup semi-final against Wigan. Surprised? No I didn't think so. This is beyond deja vu, as every week we seem to be sweating on the fitness of a few players, not [...]
Wenger questions player's use of drugs! Whilst drug tests searching for illegal substance misuse in the professional game is becoming an ever increasingly high profile topic, it has never really been a problem for Arsenal. But maybe it is the use of legal drugs that has been causing the club a problem this season.
I think that Arsene Wenger has shown remarkable forbearance this season by not blaming all of the problems Arsenal have faced on bad luck. The Frenchman has not moaned too much about the awful decisions from referees that have cost us valuable points, except maybe the Szczesny red card against Bayern Munich.
Why is Ozil taking so long to come back? by Ash Arsenal's Â£42 million man Mesut Ozil has arguably failed to live up to his expectation since coming to the Premier League. At first he was a revelation to Arsenal football club. I have not seen a player be so widely accepted by all fans [...]
Finally we have an injury story that is not about Arsenal and their players, although it could have a significant impact on the Gunners' season. Although Arsenal are still the Premier League team with the most players on the sidelines, our weekend opponents Everton are not far behind and could be without two of their [.
With one Premier League game of the season left, it is a case of better late than never for Arsenal. After a couple of months out of action, Jack Wilshere is fit again and likely to feature against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday. You have to wonder if things would have been different [...]
With all of the problems that Arsenal have had with injuries this season, it was easy to forget that one player had been on the sidelines since before the end of the previous season. And, if Abou Diaby does not make it onto the pitch for the final Premier League game away to Norwich, or [...]
Positive injury news on Jack Wilshere! Whilst there are some recent disappointments on the injury front upon hearing that neither Mesut Ozil nor Laurent Koscienly will be available for this weekend's semi final cup clash against Wigan Athletic, it is good news that they will soon be returning to the fold in a week at [.
