I don’t know about anybody else, but I have been very concerned recently about the Arsenal talisman and England’s great hope for the future, Jack Wilshere. An originally not too serious looking injury led to nearly six weeks out of the game. The main worry, for me, was not so much that Arsenal need him badly at this crucial stage of the season, but more concern for his future career.
The Gunners have had some terrible luck with injuries recently, most notably with Abou Diaby and Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman finally seems to be regaining the form that has our mouths watering before one of Stoke’s resident thugs, Ryan Shawcross, smashed his leg to pieces with a tackle that would have definitely ended his career a few years ago. .......Read more here.....

Wenger’s wish for Diaby to return for Arsenal
Abou Diaby is a well-recognised player in football; however it’s for the wrong reasons. The Frenchman is an excellent player and arguably one of the best in his position for both club and country but his injury blighted career has stopped him from becoming that Patrick Viera or Yaya Toure type figure that he certainly has the characteristics to be.
His performances have been overshadowed this year by the consistent time spent on the treatment table, but if you remember back to the start of the season, in the game against Liverpool in particular he was a dominant figure, driving the midfield forward, whilst also helping out at the back. .......Read more here.....

Wenger Speaks Out
Arsenal Manager Arséne Wenger made some key points in his recent press conference saying;
On his future: “I will assess my own performances and then make a decision. At the moment we are not there. Two years is a long time in my job. I just want to do well for the club as long as I can and accept all the rest. At the moment I am not in the mood to think about the long-term future. We want to do well this season, that’s all.” .......Read more here.....

The young Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin has been promoted to the Arsenal first-team this season, but with the resurgence of Abou Diaby he has not been given a look in during the first three League games.
He has already stated that he will give it six months to see if he can make the breakthough. He said: “In July, I met the coach and he told me I am a full member of the team and he relies on me. Looking at who we have signed, they have trust in me.
“Alex Song left for Barcelona and they didn’t sign another defensive midfielder. .......Read more here.....

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at the latest injury news concerning the Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby. We have gotten used to the big Frenchman being sidelined with his famous ankle problems that started with his horrific injury just after he arrived at Arsenal some six years ago.
On his many, many comebacks he has usually gone down with hamstring problems, and the player himself has admitted that he now has one ankle twice as big as the other, which is affecting his balance, but this time around he has suffered a “calf problem” whatever that means. .......Read more here.....

Abou Diaby is approaching his 52nd comeback for Arsenal in the near future, and he knows better than anyone that you have to remain positive about your problems or they will never go away.
He has nothing but good things to say about Arsene Wenger and everyone at Arsenal who has helped him through his difficult times, and he very rightly insists that when you think about what other players have had to endure his problems are nothing but a hill of peas….
“I just need to carry on and stay focused every day in my rehabilitation,” he told Arsenal Player. “I feel in a good way now. .......Read more here.....
