Confirmation came from the Arsenal Camp yesterday that Conor Henderson will be out for at least six months following his injury sustained against FC Cologne, life can be cruel to our younger ones these days, Frimpong last season and now Henderson this season.
I hope he recovers well and comes back stronger than ever, thankfully he’s young; he has a long career ahead of him.
Theo Walcott has also suffered a reoccurrence of an old injury, Arsene Wenger said:
Theo went home early and was due to have an MRI on Tuesday, It is an ankle injury that comes and goes.
We need some more investigation because sometimes he’s completely free of it and sometimes it affects him. But we had to send him back because he couldn’t practice anymore.
Hopefully we will hear some good news today about what is wrong, if it’s long-term, Wenger may be forced to dig deep into the funds and we don’t need that, whatever funds we have we need to use elsewhere on the pitch so again, I hope it’s nothing too serious and he’s fit and ready to face Newcastle on August 13th.
Talking of wingers/strikers, Nicklas Bendtner’s father has spoken about the future of his son saying that plenty of clubs want to buy the Danish striker; it’s just a case of choosing the right one. He added that one or two clubs were dismissed easily as he knew they weren’t right.
I didn’t know ‘Arry wanted him ;)
I wouldn’t be surprised to see him stay if Walcott’s injury turns out to be a bad one..
Yesterday we all saw the reports that we had done a deal for Mata, well, all the Spanish Press had decided to publish such a story but later in the day, the same press reported that no such offer of deal was in place.
Moral of the story is, don’t trust the Spanish Press, not that we didn’t already know that. ;)
Talking of the press, The Sun have a story which says that Chris Samba is pleading with Blackburn to let him join us so he can play Champions League Football, very soon after he tweeted
The declarations about me are totally false – never said that. I’m a Rovers player and will never mention other clubs – it’s disrespectful. Not happy right now.
The papers and press are naughty aren’t they……
That’s it for today folks, have a good one….
