*sigh* ok, lets run the checklist:

Robin Van Persie
Thomas Vermaelen
Theo Walcott
Jack Wilshere
Kieran Gibbs
Abou Diaby
Laurent Koscielny

*not including Nasri or Fabregas, since they both have one foot out the door

Never thought I would say this but now Arsenal NEED to sell Cesc and Nasri to use the money for replacements for the injured. Considering the tough start of the season new players are needed.

So our starting team hopefully needs to look somewhat like this because of injuries IMO.
.....................Szczesny
Sagna......Djourou.....CB better than Squil.... Eboue
.......Song.......Ramsey/Rosi cky......Frimpong
.....Gervinho.....Chamakh.... .....Vela/Arshavin

bench
Bendtner (if he stays)
Fabianski
Squillaci
Ramsey/Rosicky
Vela/Arshavin
Miyaichi(not sure If he has his permit)
Traore

As it stands Arsenal wont have backup for Eboue, Sagna Song Frimpong (Denilson is on loan), Chamakh as Bendtner will likely leave. Backup for Gervinho is unlikely if Miyaichi doesn't get his permit.

Now I'm really praying that many of those injuries are not prolonged ones.
