Firstly, there has to be a question and that is probably Is Coquelin the natural replacement for Arteta and/or Flamini?

I have said from when Mr Wenger re-signed Flamini that he wasn't good enough to take The Arsenal to the title or the CL Final and these must be our targets. Nor is Arteta.

Sales and loans and Arteta blow

As expected the big transfer news yesterday was the sale of Benik Afobe to Wolves for around £2m, no doubt with the typical Arsenal sell-on clause involved too should he really start fulfilling the potential the club saw in him.

Highly regarded but hampered by a couple of bad knee injuries which stopped his development and his chance of catching the eye in the Capital One Cup by Carling etc, the loan spell at MK Dons was very much shop window territory, and boy did he put himself in it.

Sunderland preview: Balance the back four

A traditional 3pm kick-off today, and what I'd give for a traditional one nil to the Arsenal. Don't get me wrong, I'd take a 2-0, a 3-1, a 4-3 or any shape of win, but a clean sheet would be nice given how often we've conceded this season.

The team news is that Jack Wilshere misses out through suspension having picked up five yellow cards, and I think Mikel Arteta will come into the midfield for him.

Rewind to May 17th 2014. Arsenal have just ended their nine-year wait for a trophy and everyone around the club is elated. This coupled with a 17th consecutive top 4 finish signified a great season for Arsenal Football Club. This happiness that I speak of continued throughout the summer as Arsenal approached a summer transfer window with no financial constraints for the first time since the beginning of the Emirates Stadium construction.

The Rest

Three months for Arteta and Debuchy + Arsecast 336

Arseblog at related • 0 views

Another day, another couple of three month injuries. Fairly standard stuff at the Arsenal.

As vexed as I am by the absences, in this situation I'm a little torn. On the one hand the idea that Mikel Arteta has fallen victim to a 'bony spur' and that it's only been discovered now is a bit frustrating.

Players get some rest + some Giroud thoughts

How nice it is to go into a long week off the back of a good win. I say a long week because we don't play the Mugsmashers until Sunday, which is probably not a bad thing really.

Although that's unlikely to make any difference to the availability of Laurent Koscielny or Aaron Ramsey, we might have Mikel Arteta back, and with concerns over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's groin we need as much time as possible to get players fit and healthy.

Injuries mount and questions need to be answered

Monday morning and we pick up the pieces from Saturday's draw with Sp*rs. The main issue, of course, is the injury situation ahead of a busy week in Europe and the Premier League.

Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey are both out for Galatasaray and Chelsea, while Jack Wilshere is a doubt after what looked to me, at least, a nasty ankle turn.
