Arsene Wenger is sweating on the fitness of Arsenal trio Robin van Persie, Kieran Gibbs and Thomas Vermaelen.
*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.
udinese v arsenal is going to be a nail biter, imagine if they get beat, just IMAGINE!
