Arsenal Set For Double Injury Boost Ahead Of FA Cup Semi Final

By on March 31, 2014

Arsenal are set to get a double injury boost ahead of our FA Cup semi final against Wigan with reports claiming the club are hopeful Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere will be available.

Arsene confirmed last week that Rambo will return to full training on Thursday and the Mirror suggest he has made ‘substantial progress’ in the last week as he continues to recover from a thigh injury. The Welshman will be put through his paces when he’s back training with the squad but the newspaper claims the club expect he’ll be fit in time to face Wigan on Saturday week.

It was always going to be touch and go but it will be a huge boost if the 23-year-old is available. The team has looked tired in recent games and we could certainly do with his energy and goal threat from midfield.

After a three month absence that’s included several set backs, I’m sure the clubs medical staff won’t take any unnecessary risks with Ramsey, so if he is back in the squad he needs to be 100% over this troublesome thigh injury.

The report also states that Jack Wilshere could make a shock return from his own injury. Jack suffered a fractured foot while playing for England at the start of March and was ruled out for at least six weeks. However, the Mirror claims that the 22-year-old is on course to make a quick recovery and Arsenal staff are hopeful he too will be able to take some part at Wembley on the 12th April.

I’m a little worried to hear this news as Jack is a fragile player who has endured several injury problems in recent years, so I’d be extremely cautious with rushing him back too soon.

Typically, Arsenal players seem to take longer than expected to recover from injuries, so it would be a huge surprise if Wilshere was able to be back playing ahead of schedule. Fingers crossed he makes good progress this week, but I’d still be majorly surprised if we saw him face Wigan.

As for our other injury victims, Laurent Koscielny has an outside chance of recovering from his calf injury to play in the semi final, but Mesut Ozil is still considered a major doubt with his hamstring strain. Theo Walcott is of course out for the season while Abou Diaby is set to return to training on Tuesday, but it’s going to take him a while to get back up to speed after a year out.

    Man our players are made of glass. One touch and they crack. I’m afraid. Ppl say they’d ont have depth in midfield. Honestly they 7 midfielders viewing for three positions. Now I feel wenger must sign someone like hulk or diego costa. And must retain podolski. Poldi is a top top player. Nd his crosses nd finishing is great. With him nd costa in the same team. That makes a very scary forward line. Anyway. I’m super happy our boys r cominh back from injury. Aaron ramseys current injury reminds of rosickys injury in 2008. I hope rambo is fine. And wilshere is an asset. But hasn’t delivered this season. But both are imp players. COYG. Do well. Beat everton. Nd do the rest.

    I am highly surprised that we have not still learned anything about how to cope with the pressure of playing against the big clubs. Even after almost 20 years under Mr Arsene Wenger. He is such a good creator of fine players, prude business man, best in good football philosophy but too much of a gentleman. So gentleman-like that it does reflect in some of the players. They are not so physically fit like other players in Premier League and they are too relaxed because they are never told off like Mr Ferguson used to do with his own players. Again, we are the easiest team to score against even though we can score as many goals as possible too. Arsenal Football Club without a doubt do play the best sweet tip tap football in England. But unlike Barcelona, Man City, Real Maldrid, Bayern Munich who do the same, we always lack good defence to back it up. Untill that problem is solved, I don’t think we can ever win any trophy again. Our full backs never stay at the back to stop the advancing opponents, rather they go forward too often wanting to score. That is why we are always in trouble if there is a counter attack by the opponents. We hold the ball too long when in possession without any frequent shots at the goal. And also, we open up too much with no close marking of any kind against the opponents.

    If those 3 major problems can be solved, we will be the best team in Europe.

    Honestly, Arsene Wenger has no reason to continue to look for a world class attacker when Benteke is just under his nose.That player can turn things around for Arsenal.

    If both of them are going to make it before the FA, then we would have a good bonus for the team.
