    This is how most clubs who compete in the CL and have players who play internationals prefer it. It seems like we are really failing on the injury recovery front. Obviously prevention is important, but for some reason our staff asses an injury says "2-3 weeks" the injury doesn't heal, and he's out for 3-4 months.

    I thought our squad were very fit in friendlies compared to the teams we played against.

    Maybe this is doctors and physio problems more than our fitness team.

    I dont see a problem with our 'injury record' this season or most of the last one. Welbz is injured, ok, but its not like we have our usual number of injuries. Ever injured Rosicky is no news, and it wont change at his age.
    Wilshere injury I am fine with, its almost normal at his stage... Who else? Arteta, Theo, Kos.. All good.
    Lets not go over the ymtop with this now too.,

    Also, its not a problem how we look now either. In few games real season really starts, you'll see fitness then.
    As one said, if we signed one big name, or, if we won against Pool, there would be no problems now.

    The football insider ran a story a few days back saying Welbeck could be out for up to 6 months -

    Now both the Guardian and The Telegraph are running similar stories based on Roy Hodgson quotes saying he has been told Welbeck will not be back until Feb/March.

    The fact the club put no timescale on his return and just vaguely said 'a number of months' does not look at all encouraging. Just makes the decision from Wenger not to sign a cover striker even more ludicrous. Let's just pray Joel Campbell is this years Coquelin as I can certainly see him getting plenty of game time.

    Thank god we signed that striker that we've needed for the last 3 years, last week.

    Just like Le Coq offered a very little last December.

    Lets see what happens, instead of consulting our crystal balls. Its all hands on deck this season.

    Kos would be a loss but I'd have confidence in Gabriel and Mert holding the fort.

    The real worry this year is if Giroud and Walcott get injured at the same time. It'd be a disaster.

    Don't worry guys, only another 2 pointless international breaks in the next 2 months where our players can pick up injuries! It's a joke.

    Hopefully that Kos one isn't true. Want to see him and Gab form a serious partnership.

    Wasn't it post to be like 2 or 3 weeks with Welbeck first.

    This has happened before. With Rosicky, when he was out for a year and half, they said he would only be out for 1 week or 2...

    I find it a infuriating because I'm not a fan of international sports, haha. Still, a lot of people get joy out of it. Not the worst thing ever I guess.

    Kos and Gab have been solid so far; hope Kos is fine. I'm actually looking forward to the duo being tested; will be interesting if they pair up for the upcoming Chelsea game.

    International games aren't that bad. It's just that Arsenal games are 1000 times better than meaningless friendlies or qualifiers against pub teams!

    It will be very interesting to see what Wenger does with Gabriel. He obviously doesn't deserve dropping but if Per is fit then i think it's 50:50 whether he comes back into the team. Not massively fussed who plays with Kos really, but it would be harsh on Gabriel to drop him this w.e.

    Gabriel conundrum, indeed. Do you drop the vice-captain (essentially captain) for an in-form player? So far Gab has faced Liverpool and Newcastle; he's looked good in both despite Chambers putting a lot of pressure on him in the Liverpool game. I think he could afford to be dropped; he knows he is the future, both Per and Kos are getting on. Plus the Per+Kos partnership is established and good.

    A bit conflicting on Koscielny's injury. A couple of newspapers saying he'll miss Stoke, a couple saying he'll be fit and ready to go. I assume Mertesacker will be fit, he had a chest infection, rarely last 3 weeks.

    Jack's supposed to be back in full training after the international break no?

    There should be some serious looking into our medical team. This can't go on for much longer.

    Can't wait until Wilshere replace Cazorla in the starting line up.

    Wilshere expected back at Christmas now? That's shocking. Starting to think he might have a Diaby-esque career. Kid just cant stay fit.
