Arsenal want Bojan Krkic – And Fabregas & Walcott Out

By on February 25, 2011

Theo Walcott Theo Walcott (R) of Arsenal pats teammate Cesc Fabregas as he is substituted during the Barclays Premier League match between Arsenal and Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium on February 23, 2011 in London, England.

Despite the injuries, there is good news. Arsenal apparently want Bojan Krkic of Barcelona [Full Story]. That seems unlikely; especially as Barcelona have only recently called Arsenal “immoral” in their capture of a Barca academy player. I wouldn’t think Barcelona would be too keen on dealing with Arsenal after that.

Anyway… Fabregas and Walcott will miss the Carling Cup final through injury, and Walcott is likely to miss the Barcelona clash on the 8th March. This must be unbelievably frustrating for Fabregas especially, seeing as his main aim as captain was to lift a trophy, and now Arenal’s best chance of doing so has come about he is going to be nothing more than a Wembley spectator.

Wenger said of Walcott who suffered an ankle injury against Stoke:

“Walcott will be out for two to three weeks with an ankle problem.

“I would say today it is very unlikely he will be fit for the second leg of the Barcelona game.

“I imagine the worst so maybe I will be surprised in a positive way but I just give you my gut feeling at the moment.”

And of Fabregas:

“You cannot play football when you’re injured. He’s sad and disappointed but it could have been worse the injury – it’s a very small one. We have many targets in front of us so it is important he is not out for longer.”

Asked how long he would be absent, Wenger replied:

“One or two games maybe.”

I think it isn’t so bad that Fabregas will miss the next few games. The injury isn’t at all serious, so he will just be rolled up in cotton wool and rested until the Barcelona game. It may work out well. No disrespect to Birmingham, but even without Fabregas and Walcott, Arsenal are comfortably the better side and should win comfortably.

The Walcott injury on the other hand isn’t so good. His pace will be missed against Barcelona, but Arsenal should cope – although Wenger hasn’t completely ruled him out of it, and still hold the hope that he will be pleasantly surprised.

Tell me what you think!

    Thank you for the welcoming party you always lay on!! Now don’t forget the goodie bags next time!

    Lets talk football ie: young talent. Bojan is a player I would like to see playing at Arsenal. He will do well playing at the Home of Football, he deserves the opportunity to wear the red & white.

    If really Arsenal want bojan, I would like Arsenal to really twisted Barca arm. Any resistance should be follow by demanding of money Barca own from puchasing, Helb, henry and others. Let them know when Arsenal really mean Bussiness
