Tottenham also have Injury worries ahead of Arsenal game

Arsenal have been struggling with injury problems since the start of the season (where have I heard that before), and the Premier league game against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday is potentially a season decider. If Arsenal lose to Spurs, confidence will drop further and we will be four points behind them and in mid table, needing a miracle to even qualify for the Champions league.

A win against Tottenham would cheer everybody up and put us two points above our rivals and moving in the right direction. Thankfully, we are not the only team beset with injury worries. Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon and Kyle Walker are all being treated this week as Spurs face losing them for the derby. Walker and Lennon were supposed to be going to Sweden with England, but have pulled out due to knocks picked up against Manchester City. Defoe was going to be rested by Roy Hodgson anyway, but was called to replace Rooney and cannot make it.

With Spurs already missing Dembele and Parker in midfield and Assou-Ekotto and Kaboul in defence, they are looking almost as threadbare as the Gunners. It would be useful for us if Either Walker or Lennon missed the game, because our left hand side has been our weakest point since Gibbs last played.

Wenger and the Arsenal players will be well aware of how important this game is, not just for the points, but to appease the understandable frustration being felt by Arsenal fans. The last few potential turning points have been missed by Arsenal. Miss this one and it could be too late.

    I hope Gibbs is back soon. We need to win the next 3 league games. We need to beat Tottenham, Aston Villa and Everton. I think this will decide our position in the league. Wenger also needs to spend big time in Jan.

    Some of the rubbish on this site is breathtaking. I want to lose 8-0 so we can sack Wenger??? How can an Arsenal fan even think like that never mind write it down. I want the team to play well and win and I want people to stop ranting about sacking the manager. One of the best defensive records in the league: fact, on line to qualify for CL quarters: fact, still in the League Cup: fact, 4 points off Everton and CL qualification fact.

    Man City out of CL, Chelsea hanging on, Man City and United out of League Cup. The Premiership is 11 games old, only 27 to play so of course it is now down to three teams, all the rest of us playing for 4th place, well take a look at the events in the PL year by year, teams go on bad runs, the situation changes quickly. It is all still to play for.
    We have played miserably since the Chelsea game, Wenger has made some starnge calls in his positioning of players and his selection policy, all true. But there have been periods when we have looked the part this season and we will come again. The Shalke performance was ropy defensively but it was a 100% effort and believe e this Shalke team could go a long way in the CL.
    Get behind the team and the manager and be real fans, not a bunch of idiots who blame Wenger, the best manager the club has ever had.

    LOL man I love the fact that you despise fans trapped in their fifa 13 world. Good to have someone wake these people up. I have a close friend who’s my age, 34, and he still plays playstation as if he were 15. He tells me that the stats for players are live so they fluctuate depending on the player’s current form. I said to him Wilshere is rated 79/100 but he is regarded as a 90/100 player for Arsenal. How do these stats really determine how important a player is to a team? How do these stats actually reflect the true skills or value a player is to his team? As expected my ignorant mate said, these stats are from Fifa so it should be highly regarded. I laughed so hard my guts almost gave in. I can only imagine what you would say to him! LOL

    Very true man, so many fans treat our players like robots. They want instant success, and some would of played competitive sports at some stage of their lives, but strangely cannot understand the elements needed to win. For starters, it helps when the fans are FULLY behind the team. Atm, there is a great dividing range between the optimist and the pessimist. I choose to be the initial because when things turn around, in which they will, I’ll be glad to know that I chose to believe. It’s sort of like religion. You choose to believe or don’t, but there’s nothing worse than a preacher that doesn’t practice what he preaches.

    I still believe in Giroud and even predicted that he would score 1 goal and give 1 assist prior to the last game. He actually scored 2 goals, but looked completely determined to win. I like that about Giroud. He;s a fighter. He’ll sacrifice his body to get a touch on the ball. You can’t teach this. This is natural instinct and courage! Under Wenger, Giroud will only get better and better. We forget that RVP had 8 years with Wenger in the EPL. Giroud has had only about 3 months with the manager. As Giroud improves by playing around gifted players, his game can only get better. If he started off in the EPL or first div elsewhere, he’d be a much better player I believe. Just a matter of time until we see Giroud producing some spectacular goals and consistently too!

    I WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE!

You say these players Wanted to leave can you blame them honestly Fickle fans like u really are laffable, they want to Win trophies not get into top four and save the club money. Good luck to all of them I wish them all the best, Also its not always about spending in the past 3,4 seasons they have been atleast 10 players who have been sitting on a healthy pay packet at Arsenal which should nor even be playing in the Sunday league to name a few Bendtner,denilson,Santos,squilacci Trust me there’s many more il not carry on.

    No Mo you are the fickle fan.

    List three bad players – signed nearly 10 years a part at that – as our replacements for players that have left.

    How about we replaced Cesc with Santi, Nasri with podolski/Gervinho/Theo and even though RVP is irreplaceable without spending 80mil we replaced him with Giroud who looks like he can score 15+ per season mixed with Walcott who looks like a 15+ per season player.

    Talking about trohpies and ignoring the fact that we are in a 1/4 final, FA cup hasn’t started and we are one win away from progressing in the Champs League.

    And like @Nick from Portugal said the season is 11 games old! We have a pretty decent run into christmas, We win a few who knows?

    The fans need to stand up and do something about the club we love. Taking a stand against the manager and board does not mean we are not supporting our club. We need to somehow show the board what we think because if we don’t and we support the club blindly even though we disagree with the methods being used by the manager and the board, then nothing will change. The higher ups at Arsenal will believe everything is fine because the fans aren’t complaining. In Wenger I used to trust now I don’t know what to believe anymore.

    Reality is you and you’re kind – by that I mean people who fit the generalisation I am about to make – are idiots.

    You are the epitome of everything wrong with Arsenal at the moment.

    You have appear to have a blatant lack of understand of football

    You have never given a reasoned opinion, you always say something stupid

    I’m guessing here, but without google you probably couldn’t tell me who Arsene Wenger took over from, or what year we were formed in fact any of Arsenals history.

    You are probably one of these FIFA players that @hafiz rahman speaks about.

    If I was to guess what year you started supporting Arsenal, I would probably say half way through the unbeaten season.

    I understand opinions differ, and to be fair there are underlying issues at Arsenal – I personally feel Wenger and the board are the right people – but you (and your kind) never engage in any argument that makes sense, at least with other people here reasoned argument is possible.

    Normally all this doesn’t matter, not everyone talks football this seriously…

    However in three days time it is Arsenal Vs Tottenham, traditionally a massive game for Arsenal. This whole week I will take abuse from spurs fans, travelling to the game saturday – I have to go through tottenham – there is always the possibility of being attacked physically for supporting Arsenal and all this I accept as derby day madness.

    What shouldn’t be accepted, though, is Arsenals own ‘fans’ attacking the club the week before the game.

    @ Dr Pepper I cannot believe you really think our current board and management are ‘the right people.’ Did you read or listen to the AGM meeting in October? The board including PHW were completely ripped apart and had no good answers to the questions raised by shareholders. Gazidis kept saying how football was priority and profits second, yet have we actually seen that in the last 7 years? No, we have not. What we HAVE seen is our club selling our assets every season and replacing them with inferior players. We have seen our squad having to be rebuilt season after season, handicapping us majorly at the beginning of every season. We have seen constantly been lied to over the sales of certain players, including Nasri, Fabregas and RvP. Wenger commented and said 4th place is like a trophy. You cannot get less ambitious than that! Especially coming from a club like Arsenal!!

    Wake the F@CK up man and stop being such a gullible mug. If the people running our club cannot even be honest with the fans and respect them, then it means they are only in it for themselves – which is exactly what the current situation reflects.

    And for the record, I have been supporting Arsenal since 1987.

    Yes replaced Cesc with Santi, one season later or not it was a replacement.

    This season Nasri is 12 games-3goals-2 assists, Last season 7 goals and 11 assists.

    Walcott’s stats are and were better 14-8-6. Podolski’s stats are better 15-5-3. Gervinho’s stats are better 10-5-1.

    We have three better wide right/players than Nasri but don’t let facts and figures ruin your argument.

    I have already said RVP is irreplaceable, not trying to argue any other way, but like I said if Theo and Giroud score 15+ goals each – and that looks like it could happen we have replaced his goals.

    5 years time I’ll still be supporting Arsenal, if you want to argue about why we haven’t won a trophy at least come up with a credible argument.

Nasri with podolski see you don’t even know your football, podolski is more a winger/striker, Nasri is an attacking midfielder played out wide.

    We haven’t changed formation since 2004, you agree? If so you can clearly see that Podolski is playing the same position that Nasri was employed in FOR ARSENAL(not what you see their positions as)?

    Without discussing the merits of who is better, if you disagree with that statement above – then simply you are wrong.

    If you would like to discuss the merits of Gervinho and Theo, kindly look above to me previous comment in which is used facts and figures to demonstrate a point – which you clearly have to grasp of.

    Without disputing the players you listed, arguably only Almunia has ever been a starting 11 player – when chamahk started in 2009 he scored 10 goals in 11 games, and then wasn’t overly used when RVP returned.

    Djourou is a 4th choice CB, just as good as any other in the league. Mannone – whilst I don’t rate him – is a fairly decent back up keeper, as was Fabianski – but noway first choice keepers, which they have never been.

    Even Rosicky can never really be considered a first 11 player, wasn’t as good as Cesc when he was here + now he isn’t as good as Santi – the one season he was a first team player he preformed well(last year)

    @ Dr pepper, stats don’t mean jack diddly squat, the bottom line is this Theo Walcott is an Average player he has been at Arsenal for 6/7 years and has done nothing to prove he is a top player and he has the audacity to ask for 100k baffling, Gervinho,lol, clueless. Djourou is only 4th choice now but let me tell you one thing those ahead of him aint much better. Let me just name a few 4th choice c.b that are way better. Caulker, smalling, cahill, carragher, k.toure, perch, I can possibly name every 4th choice in the premier league and they would be better then Djourou a complete donkey of a defender. Fans like u there’s no point even saying anything your heads in a bubble I’m sorry to say it burst long ago. Last season v.p single handedly got them into top four looking at this team top 4 just be happy with top 10.

    @Dr Pepper Your argument regarding Nasri is invalid because he is not a regular player at City. He has David Silva and Toure to compete with amongst others. Those stats are mainly from him being brought on as a sub, not from full 90 minute games.

    Also you call replacing a player with another player over a year later, good management? First you say Santi replaced Fabregas, now you are saying Santi replaced Nasri? Who is it then? It is most obvious Wenger has not replaced those players adequately and too late. In actual fact if you look at the transfer window in 2011 after or during the departure of Fabregas, Nasri, Clichy etc Wenger PANICKED and bought Arteta and Benayoun. They were supposed to be Fabregas and Nasri’s replacement. Quite honestly none of them are as good. Shocking management to wait until pretty much the last day to fill the boots of two of your key central players.

    So please get your facts straight, and in 5 years time there will still be people like you and I arguing about why Arsenal hasn’t won a trophy in 13 years. The difference is I know when I am being taken for ride. Ask yourself this.
    Wenger stated years ago that he had a youth development project he was busy with. He promised those players would turn into our next champions, the new Arsenal if you will. Fair enough, he did turn a few of them into great players. But where are all those players now? All sold my friend. If our board of directors and Arsene were genuine in their approach and conduct of training up superstars, it would be to keep them to win titles, not to sell them. These promised were made during the Emirates campaign, so to use that as an excuse is null and void.

    But it is fine. If you want to keep being taken for a mug season after season, be my guest. I guess at least it will keep these forums lively in years to come. But I would rather be talking about Arsenal’s double or how we defeated Madrid in the finals of the CL.

    You state a point, I prove it and then you tell me numbers are irrelevant! are you basing your arguments on your own scale? If so care to share it?

    Carragher starts for liverpool whilst Caulker and Cahill are second choice defenders – plus Djourou is better than Caulker anyway. You have probably seen Caulker play twice on tv as well – reaffirming my idea that some people base arguments on who they have watched that week on TV. Djourou is also a better player than kolo toure + kolo toure is on double Djourou’s money – would you rather have a substandard 4th choice CB and pay him 90k/week instead of 60?

    Goalkeepers don’t win games, he is good enough without having to spend massive on a keeper.

    @John K
    At no point did I say we replaced Nasri with Santi – maybe you are confusing my point that Santi is a better player than Rosicky??!?

    I agree with you that is a problem, if Wenger is told by players they want to go – sell them early. Wengers problem is he believes he can convince them to stay, but back to your other point, (we let players go) we can’t afford their wage demands. Simple as that Nasri 180k/week, Adebayor 175k/week and rvp 250k/week.

    Id have a bigger problem paying these players that much money.

    John K and Mo, What country do you reside in and how long have you been supporting Arsenal?

    Dr pepper, caulker is behind gallas,kaboul, and Dawson who he only got in front of becuase he got a long term injury. cahill is behind terry,luiz ivanovic is played at right bk so technically he is last choice out of centre bks. carragher is behind skrtel and agger its touch and go btwn him and coetes. Djourou better then kolo,lol, iv heard enough I know kolo ain’t the player he was but he is still alot better then Djourou and a lot on here will agree. Keepers don’t win games are u Serious or having a laff???,
    You like ur stats go check over the years how many points keepers like, Joe harte,cech, shay given, van Der saar, and many more have saved thier team in a season and get bk to me.
    You stick to your stats and keep believing Djourou,theo,gervinho are world class.
