    No. If they could, I'm sure they would, but they can't and Wilshere needs to see out the season as a starter anyway. I'm sure he's yet to peak fitness wise and has been building up his intensity gradually.

    Bellerin injured now . . put us back up to 3rd in the injury league again.

    There's a doubt against Walcott and Gibbs returning for the next match, Özil and Debuchy maybe, but still not in training yet.

    Per and Coq Feb return, Santi March.

    It was a bit concerning that Bellerin had to be thrown in early due to Mustafi's injury. Gibbs just shows that Monreal should have been given more rest while the opportunity was there. I think that players like Welbeck and Santi should be viewed largely as non-factors until they prove their fitness. Season is basically a write off for Cazorla in my view until evidence to the contrary.

    For most of his career he's had an excellent injury record, it was last season that he broke down seriously for the first time.

    Wonder if he has simply played too many games. Must take its toll to run around the entire pitch with those little legs.

    He is not young anymore and never was really an athlete. Playing very demanding position on the field.

    I really say this with best wishes for my favorite player. He could maybe get more years out of his career in the Spanish league.

    What a shame but it's the kind of injury that forces Wenger to improve the team. He hasn't been offering much for a long time and should have been sold last window

    think this is one of the reasons.

    he must be getting way more whacks to those little legs when paying as a CM.

    Back up to 2nd in the injury league with 8 injuries. Doubts over Giroud, Gibbs, Coq, Bellerin, for Burnley. Walcott, Debuchy maybe 2/3 weeks. Santi and Per still no return date.

    Chelsea just Costa out over the bust up, Spurs only 2, Man U Ibra with a cold and Rojo back this week.

    Our guys are made of f***ing match-wood and our rivals solid steel.

    Wenger said that Hector and Coquelin are not far off and could be ready for the next game, Theo would need another two weeks at least.

    Theo's injury is getting pretty annoying now.

    Should cut our losses in my opinion.

    He's only of use for three months every season. Other than that he is injured, getting back to match fitness, benched because of contract negotiations or he simply can't control a football.

    As @Vinci we must at all costs get him off our books. 10+ seasons, little improvement, high wages and he's an injury prone as they come. The injuries have been a problem but we cant keep depending on players like him to be fit to play let alone produce on the pitch.

    Should've sold him years back. Can't remember the last full season he's given us. £140k p/w for a lad who genuinely has difficulty dribbling :lol:.

    How do you sell a guy like Theo who'll demand those wages? We ****ed it with that contract.

    I agree but he does score when he's fit - just can't stay fit. Anyway, he's with us till death or Arséne leaves for sure.

    How can you forget this dribbbbble
