Senegal's Arsenal Thread 2015/16

Recommended Posts

I'd like us to take a punt on Gotze.

Couple years ago, everyone would of gone WOW, at the thought of him being linked with any team. Now, seems underwhelming. Think he is going back to Dortmund.

Looks like Xhaka is getting closer, shame it'll be a year too late.

We've reportedly bid the asking price and they're sorting out a replacement before it's done.

My only concern is that the more we end up paying for him, the less and less likely it makes him to go out and spend big on any other players.

As far as reports are concerned whether they come from 'trusted' journalists or not I refuse to believe we are acquiring a player or have bought a player until it's officially announced.

I see Welbeck, Wilshere & Walcott all eventually fading out into a nice contract at West Ham where they're free to be injured half the time & hit it off on the occasions that they're actually fit

Was it a torn meniscus? Think thats what I saw rumoured when he first did it, but can't find anything on it since.

Wenger said earlier that the cartilage was damaged.

Yeh it's the same injury as his last one. Although this one is his lateral meniscus. Previous one was medial I think. They tried to manage the last one conservatively, which was pointless.

They've just ignored that route this time and gone for surgery.

Give him back FFS
I think your lot knew he was in trouble & were happy to sell, his injury record is not a short read & includes 15 knee injuries which is a clear indication that he either has fundamental medical issues with his knee's or there are other contributing factors that place more stress than the joints are built to handle.

Well by any club's logic he wouldn't feature much next season, nature of long term injury.

Think Barside might be on to something

"I got Osgood-Schlatter disease in my knees because my bones were growing quicker than my muscles and it’s hard to get out on the training pitch, then afterwards you’re in agony every single time you play football.

“You’ve just got to take it as a positive and see what you can do to make yourself better.

"Looking back at it now it helped me develop into a man mentally as well as physically because you’ve got to rest your body and learn the game from a different perspective.”

The number lower joint & hamstring injuries should have been a red flag, looking at his injury history you have to question the pre-contract medical assessment conducted by Arsenal as there must be an underlying weakness that is being exposed by playing high level competitive sport.

Don't really agree with that. Most footballers will have a history of lower joint and hamstring injuries - absolutely no reason not to sign someone. Nor is it an indication that they're 'done'.

Previous hamstring injury, for example, is a known risk factor for future hamstring injuries. But then if you used that at face value, you'd never sign another footballer ever again, because most will have hamstring injuries.

Difficult without knowing the history of his other knee injuries - once you damage the meniscii, it can be a difficult circle to break if you choose to repair it. If you're an NBA fan, Derrick Rose is a great example. But this latest one was a horrible impact and would have injured the knees of a lot of players.

I am pretty sure these pre-contract fitness tests are just light jogging on a treadmill :D

Guardian had an interesting stat, Cech/Arsenal conceeded the most goals from outside the box this season in Prem, surprised at that even though I do recall a few going past him

I wonder what percentage were low shots at his near post? Perceptively Cech appeared to have a problem judging them.

Interesting that the club have leaked that they want a decision by October. Last time Wenger left it until the very last moment before committing. Wouldn't be surprised if Stan has no clue what Wenger wants to do and is trying to flush him out.

stunned that you would offer him an extension

I'm not. Outside of the two FA Cups in the last couple years, he hasn't won anything and yet he's still there, so it's clear they're gonna let him go out on his own terms, especially if he always qualifies for the UCL at a minimum.

Obviously depending on what we do over the summer, but at this point I'd be utterly amazed if we finished top 4 next season. If United sack off van Gaal and get in Mourinho we could struggle to finish 6th imo.

http://news.arseblog.com/2016/05/wenger-contract-extension-story-is-absolutely-false/

[Questions posed by Nick Collins, Sky Sports News]

You’ve still got one year left on your contract, there are reports that you’re to be offered a two-year extension to that…

That’s completely wrong and I don’t know where this information comes from. You can treat that as just an invention. It’s absolutely false.

OK…

And I would like this press to check the information before they give it out because they could have checked with the club or with myself and we’d both have denied it.

Is that something you’d like though? A two-year extension…

No. I think about the next game you know. At my stage you want to do well. I’m committed with integrity and commitment, full commitment for the club, as long as I’m under contract. At the moment that’s all.

___

[Questions posed by James Olley, The Evening Standard]

I know you’ve knocked down the contract story, but will it make it harder to sign players if they don’t know whether you’re going to be here beyond next season?

I don’t think so. I hope not.

Have you decided what you will do, privately, beyond next season?

No.

What will determine that?

What I focus [on] is to respect my contract and after [i’ll] envisage what I do after. I can understand that people are interested in that but that’s not the most important. I think I’ve extended my contract at a period when it was vital for the club and after that I will see where I am personally and where the club stands at the end of my contract.

So, to rephrase that slightly…what happens next season will determine whether you stay or not?

Of course, yeah. You sum it up very well.

Wenger the only manager in world football who's position is weakened by this sort of story, bizarre.

But basically, we won't know if he's extending his contract until the end of next season.

No Rosicky or Flamini in the squad today - only potentially seeing Arteta play for the last time then.

Lack of Rosicky is rubbish :(
