    Where did this even come from? Don't recall ever hearing about Lacazette having a knee issue. Then the twitter account suddenly drops that his had surgery.

    "Going". As in future tense. Did you miss that part?
    If he continues to play the way he currently is, and he continues to miss the chances he's missing then in the future he's going to cost us games.

    Did people actually watch Giroud’s performances in the EL this season?

    Guy was absolutely woeful. Take Welbeck or Eddie over him up top every day of the week.

    As for Lacazette - if we need him to get past a Swedish pub team then we don’t deserve to be in this **** competition.

    Hasn’t looked fully fit for a while but this sounds more serious than expected - hope he’s back for the trickier rounds.

    With Wenger, you never know.

    Another theory is he is taking 4-6 weeks off to get back to optimum physical shape. Maybe workingv on his quickness can make all the difference. He needs that burst of yard...otherwise, he will never succeed in England.

    DanDare Not interesting enough for a custom title

    FFS this is not a story concocted. He’s had a knee issue, it flared up and he got an effusion, he had an arthroscopy and now is getting rehab.

    I don’t think it’s the cause for all his bad form but might explain him making fewer runs than he did when he first came

    If it krept up slowly, and there's injuries that do, it might not have affected his confidence, but his overall game due to pain or holding back. The injury might have only been discovered to be serious when it flared up after the Spurs game. Sometimes you think something is just a knock, or the time between sessions/games is just enough to get you painless, so you don't think it's chronic.

    Yup it explains a lot if he was carrying it for awhile .

    To be fair Laca was wearing knee brace on match day a few weeks ago.

    Well we are ****ed now aren't we?? Our only chance of getting back into the UCL rests on Welbeck. This is crazy. No way in the world are we making top 4. Europa league now is complicated.

    Aubameyang is bought by Arsenal: “that’s the end of Lacazette, there’s no room for him, he’s finished, Arséne never wanted him.”

    Lacazette gets injured two weeks later: “we should have never sold Giroud, we’re ****ed now, how can we cope without Lacazette, Wenger out etc.”

    Never change, A-M.

    That's hard don't have faith in Welbeck in this competition which we need to win.

    you think I got faith on Welbeck?
    I don't want to wish or think injury on others we need to keep him healthy, but I am not convinced he could stay healthy...

    Boy, this guy can't seem to catch a break. Hopefully, he'll come back with no issues and start to score more.
    Now we're starting up front with Danny and Eddie on the bench.
    I'd rather play Ramsey in his place, to be honest. At least we know he would score.

    He was bought in, wasn't 100% in terms of fitness and that limited his minutes. Wenger goes off buying another striker, and a two weeks later he receives an injury. From the sounds of it, he must of been unfit or carrying this injury for some time.

    Its all beginning to make sense why he kept getting taken off. My guess is his knee's been injured for a while but they pumped him with several cortisone injections just to get him through.

    Yeah, my take on it was he's been carrying this injury that's probably been getting progressively worse. We saw him at Swansea away where his leg was heavily strapped.

    Aubameyang comes in who's going to be first choice. Does Lacazette continue to grind through the season making it worse every week whilst continuing to play second fiddle to Auba and only playing in the Europa League whilst risking his World Cup place because of this injury. Makes sense imo to get it done now, get him back before the end of the season and then at the very least he's good to go for the start of next season. Don't know if he'll get a WC spot though if he returns in April/May because he wasn't first choice anyway, he'll lack sharpness and it's not a lot of time to stake a claim.
