Well it didn’t take long did it, three games into the Premier League, one for France and Abou Diaby is injured and will miss tonights World Cup qualifier for his country.
Didier Deschamps has revealed a muscular problem is then reason our midfield man will miss the fixture against Belarus.
Diaby took a bad shot and he has muscular discomfort. He is not free in his movements.
However, I doubt very much this is something to be overly concerned about. Diaby has been out for a long while and maybe two games in five days is asking a bit too much too soon, and maybe Arsene Wenger has something to do with this decision.
I’m sure he’ll be strutting his stuff on Saturday when Southampton come to town.
Another concern is Theo Walcott, he missed training with England yesterday through illness and has subsequently been ruled out for tonight against Ukraine.
Theo has picked up some sort of virus, he was quite violently ill last night..
Surely the thought of signing a new Arsenal contract isn’t so bad is it?
We Arsenal fans have had to endure our seemingly annual flogging from the Gutter Press this summer, the Red Tops & co revelled in our discomfort as the Robin van Persie saga rumbled on for weeks and Alex Song’s departure only added to their glee.
As we prepared for the start of the season and then edged our way towards the end of August and what a relief it was,seeing the summer transfer window close.
None of us expected or predicted the bombshell dropped by Bacary Sagna!
Sagna has, during his time at Arsenal, been a solid, loyal, disciplined and reliable part of Arsene Wenger’s senior group of players. Never one for courting controversy or causing the club any embarrassment. He quietly and efficiently got on with job and became arguably the best right-back in the EPL.
Then his interview to a French publication and the facade was blown away!
So what has fuelled sudden unsettled stance???
Is it really the departures this Summer of Robin Van Persie and Alex Song?
Could it be that simple???
Could it possibly be Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri whispering in his ear?
Or could it maybe have anything to do with his 2nd broken leg, has that misfortune made him feel insecure and concerned about his long-term future?
Could it be that all his old familiar team mates have moved on and feels that he has been left behind?
Could it be a desire to win trophies before he gets too old?
Maybe it’s a combination of some, or all of the above?
Could it be his Agent, in other words, money???
Or, is it the sudden emergence and improvement in Carl Jenkinson and the stark realisation that he might struggle a bit, and not walk straight back into the team?
