Arsenal Injury Boost As Wilshere, Sagna & Vermaelen Near First Team Return

Arsenal have been handed an injury boost with the news that Jack Wilshere, Bacary Sagna and Thomas Vermaelen are nearing first team returns for the club.

Arsenal have been handed an injury boost with the news that Jack Wilshere is due to return to full training in two weeks time.

The Daily Mail reports that Wilshere is pencilled in to rejoin his team mates in full training later this month and Arsene Wenger is hopeful he could make his first team come back in early February.

The 20-year-old has missed the entire season so far after injuring his ankle in pre season, with the injury eventually requiring surgery. Arsene Wenger has always maintained the midfielder would be back in February and it looks like he was spot on.

We play Bolton on the 1st of February but it’s highly unlikely he’ll be back in time for that game. My guess is he might make a substitute appearance against Blackburn on the 4th with a view to starting against Sunderland on the 11th. If all goes well, Wilshere will be in the line-up to face AC Milan in the Champions League first leg on the 15th Feb!

We’ve severely missed the genius of Jack in the middle of the park this season and his return to action will be a massive boost for the club.

Song, Ramsey and Arteta have practically played every game this season and all three have been looking tired in recent weeks. A fully fit and fresh Wilshere will hopefully rejuvenate the Arsenal midfield going in to the second half of the season.

The Mail also suggest that Thomas Vermaelen and Bacary Sagna could return to action against Manchester United this weekend, but i’m not getting my hopes up on that just yet. Too much good news on the injury front may send me in to cardiac arrest.

    Wenger stil hasnt got replacements for Fab & Nas. He needs two quality players in midfield 2 replace the two that left, i think he shuld get Samba as wel,cos defenders lik him dnt come too easily in the transfa mrkts, havin an egde cos he wants C L futbol. He also needs a top striker whom can alwys compliment Van Persie. Arshavin,squilachi,djourou,rosicky shuld be allowed 2 leave,they’v ovastayed thier welcom and ar now surplus to requirements.

      except for the beginning of last season ( 4 months), Nasri has never been a star to gunners. that showed when the real fight came around in the second half of last season. he faded dramatically, and still building on where he left , out of total form

    There is no time to waste saying that Wilshere could n`t be fit for the AC Milan clash. Pliz Wenger play Jack effective 04/jan/2011 instead of wasting time wishing and wishing

    I dnt thnk asnl lacks quality. We are way better than utd and che in squad strength. I thnk injury blows have ruined our season. Theo must be axed from our 1st team hez a sloppy winger ,poor passer, has got zero vision, def like finishing etc… I thnk a good winger and a finisher could easily thrive us to the top of the league.

    Arsenal has a squad to win CL if Wenger learns a few tactics and stops being stubborn. Chamberlain, Miyaichi and Coquelin are polished enough to take over from Arshavin, Theo and Ramsey/Song. We need to resort to our old 4-4-1-1 with Gervinho playing behind RVP, Ryo and OX as wide players as Arteta and Jack controlling the midfield. Vermaelen and Koscielny take central defence flanked by Santos and Sagna as fullbacks. The stingy and stubborn Wenger has failed to see that a 2008 Arshavin is a shadow of himself in 2012.

    Start training by the end of january ? Is that a joke, he has been out all year as it is…i thought he was suppose to be back end of christmas/ early jan

    What a total rip off, why has wenger not bought in a replacement … apart from wilshere, no one else is champions league quality!

    And wilsheres barely out of his teens for goodness sake… shambles and an embarrassment

    The Question is ‘Why does wenger complain about Refs after every match?Its true we’ve bin denied penalties on numerous ocassions n instead of rewarding us wit penalties we’ve been punished wit penalty.Wenger should stop complaining and get players that can lift ur team else VP will leave @ d end of the Season.Arsharvin’s best has always been at the centre as a supporting striker and most times thats where his assist comes from.Yet wenger plays him from the flank.Wenger Ought to allow oxlade on the right, Theo on the left,And Arshavin @ the centre instead of relying mainly on ramsey who look drained out of strength.Up gunners.It will be well.

    Wenger should listen to fans,at least for once..djorou,arshavin and charmak should be sold off,pls wenger should go for players he has been scouting for for a long time now,he should stop gambling with his chances of winning matches by thinking which of players who are fit and those who are not.Wenger pls listen to your fans at least this time around..

    Wenger need a powerful assistant so he can just be a figure head. He do’nt know when to do substitution & who to substitute. To refine the club a bit, he need to flush somebody like chamark, squilaci, djourou, ashavin & henry. Henry is old. Bentner should’nt come back from loan, except if he’s coming back as a midfielder & not a striker. There are better people in the market. Better go since the transfer window is still open. Then arsenal ll be in the 1st 2 & not even among the 1st 4. Good luck

    Why’s Arsene Wenger making Arsenal fans crying every matchday that pass? Can’t he do something for the club as he use to do in the past by buy quality players? There’re good players in Germany, Portugal, Brazil, Argentina, Uraguay, Italy & not in France alone. Arsenal fans’re tired of these French footballers in the club.

    Am hre 2 give u sme advice, u knw pple that coach he is fantistic bored, coz he dn’t know how 2 make a good tactic like lineup 4 5 1. That one is very feak let me telling u pliz we need 2 striker Rvp plus another, like Man Utd. Unlast coach 2 move n we bring former chelsea coach. Especially djourou, Remsay,Arshavin,Rosiky Plus Chamak they are just 4 nothing and they can distroying da club. Pliz coach let them go even we r not support the arsenal unlast dis pple moving.

    All u anti Wenger shld jst dry up & blow away. As if an yone of u could do better! Imagine another fan asking who is Sagna? Its d lowest low guys. If u can’t stop whinning about our team, d spuds r jst down d road. Go support dem & don’t ever come back. At least dey r above us 4 d 1st time in 50yrs4o joinn dem in d once in a life time achievement. Morons!

    Thumps up 4 all u gunnars 4 ur wonderful comments. But what stil baffles me is dat none of u knws arsenal problm. Our is nt d defence but is 90% centred on a player and dat is RAMSEY,wt him constantly in dat midfd,arsnl cnt get dat top 4 spot. Song arteta n rosicky/bena/wishere will gv u d best mdfd afta barca. RAMSEY loses d easily n neva wins it,has no pace/speed 4 counter worst stil lacks shootin acuracy n no goal sense. Of late he’s bcom mouthy,does he thk he cn bench eida arteta or song wen wilsh return. I blame d coach 4 his selectn. OX 4 nw is beta dan theo,giv park,ryo n coquelin a chance up front,play bena/rocs ahead of RAMSEY. Sell d likes of chamk,arshavin,diaby,RAMSEY mst importantly,i stil thk djou shud be last to be sold. RAMSEY has stop playin.
