Why the international break is bad timing for Arsenal 0

Posted on March 16, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The standard March international break is right around the corner, as players from around the world travel back to their homeland in order to engage in some relatively pointless friendlies. Of course, the media will try and make you believe that they mean more than that, but we all know they’re used as ‘World Cup warm-ups’ and nothing more.

They’ve been publically vilified as an idea for years and years now, and rightly so. They don’t really offer any kind of productivity other than ticket sales for the matches, and when you examine what it’ll do to teams like Arsenal, it becomes even more infuriating.

International break coming at the right time for Arsenal 0

With Arsenal having a number of sidelined players on the cusp of returning in the next two weeks, it’s the perfect time for the international break for manager Arsene Wenger to asses who is coming back to full fitness.

French striker Yaya Sanogo, Spanish playmaker Santi Cazorla, England international midfielders Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, German forward Lukas Podoloski, and French midfielder Abou Diaby are Arsenal’s current first-team absentees.

The side are top of the table, and will welcome the break to recharge the batteries after a blistering start to the season which has seen them drop just 5 points from seven games.
