Vermaelen surgery rules him out for 2 months

Vermaelen surgery rules him out for 2 months

It is being reported that Thomas Vermaelen has undergone surgery on his left ankle and faces a significant spell on the sidelines.

The Belgian picked up a knock in Arsenal’s 2-1 win away at Udinese and while Arsene Wenger said he ‘should be all right’ for the game at Old Trafford, it has emerged the problem is more serious.

Vermaelen made just 5 appearances last season as an Achilles problem ruled him out from August until May, and there will be fears that an issue with the same ankle could make things more problematic. He is expected to be out of action for at least 2 months.

It’s more bad news for Arsene Wenger after seeing Jack Wilshere ruled out for 2-3 months, also with an ankle injury.

It should be noted that the reports are, as yet, unconfirmed, but as this is Arsenal, as sure as night follows day and Na$ri is a cunt, it’s probably spot on.

    He seems to have taken us backwards, over the last 7 years lewin went now we have injuries galore, dein went then we went from superstars to supersuds
    AW if you fail this season then you can go upstairs and we can get somebody that cares about the fans !

    • Perhaps he didn’t sign Cahill for 12-13 million because Bolton turned down a bid of around 15m for Cahill from the cunts down at Shite Hart Lane. At least get your facts right before chucking your toys out of the pram.

  29. There’s something seriously wrong with Arsenal’s training methods in my book. It’s not so much how injuries are treated but the prevention. There’s no doubt in my mind it’s to do with Wenger’s flawed logic. Too much power, too much authority to run training sessions his way etc. etc. Just goes to show what a colossal mess can be made by giving one man the keys to the city.

    • You might be right, because I saw Fab take some hard tackles and his hamstring’s just fine.

      Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

      • Steve of Chiang Mai

        Pretty sure in Fab’s case the hamstrings connected to the heart-string……for all his sweet talk now about Arsenal and Wenger, his behaviour during the summer cost Arsenal 15-20M. The communication between Fabregas and Barcelona was an open secret…..encouraging texts from the President for goodness sake. Barcelona team member pressurizing through the media. Perhaps the reason Wenger encouraged the sale was he saw Fabregas’ hammy was not going to improve until the colour of his shirt changed……and hey, just a little Barcelona air was all it took….its a miracle!

  35. You have to ask questions about the medical team. RvP, Vermaelen, Jack and Diaby all suffer prolonged spells out with ankle injuries. In all cases, the club kept saying “just a few weeks”…which turned to months. WTF

    I think Pete is right, it could well be training methods. I don’t believe it’s the ‘up it at them’ way other teams play against us, I don’t believe it’s out medical team (though they should be investigated anyway) and it’s not an Ashburton Grove curse. I think the training methods are perhaps a bit too much, a couple of players have mentioned it before- and I know how physically demanding this league is but perhaps it is the training? Perhaps the pitches we play/train on are damaging the players’ tendons? This HAS to be looked into from the top, urgently. It is costing us.

    Nasri and Barcelona’s board are a match made in cunt heaven.

    Look at the bright side people!! We were in contention until the last months of last season, which means we survived and played some blinding football without Vermaelen.. And we DIDN’T have a German international giant in our midst. Think what we can do this season if Squillaci is kept well away from the team! Fuck this negativity bullshit it’s time to get happy! Now someone pass me a bottle of something fizzy and brown!

    • Interesting article and perspective….

      It feels like Arsenal carry more injuries than other teams with that play the same amount of games. I always thought we felt the effect of the injuries more acutely because our squad lacks depth (arguably still does, even with 9 signings over summer).

      However, I’d loved to see a statistical analysis of injuries over the past 5-10 years, vis a vis other Prem league top 6, vis a vis other champions legaue sides from the top divisions. How bad do we fare against our peers?

      Surely luck evens itself out over 10 years?

      Has anyone seen such an analysis?

    Now then. If true, that’s a big blow. But even without the redoubtable Verminator, our starting defence feels better to me than last season.

    Sagna remains quality. Kos to me is an obvious starter while we’re sans TV5. There’s no doubt that, notwithstanding the early good stuff, Clichy ended his days here as a weak spot – a bit of a liability.

    Now Santos I know bugger all about, but it strikes me that if he can’t stop a winger by fair means, he’ll just wait til the ref’s looking the other way and eat them. Boots, laces and all. The only clue to what’s taken place will be Andre dabbing at the sides of his mouth with a kerchief.

    And then we come to THE MERTEKNACKERSACKERCRACKER.

    We had no TV5 last year and were frankly shit at the back. But this lad knows what the game’s about. He knows how to defend. He’s technically a giant. And he has a cool name.

    So now, as long as we can get in some Bedouin warriors on the training and medical side – those fuckers go for miles without a hint of a tweaked hammy/achilles/testie – we’re fine.

  68. Training methods? Seriously. Did anyone watch the tackle that caused this? It was a very aggressive sliding challenge that went right through Vermaelen’s lower leg. It could have been a much worse injury. I thought at the time he wouldn’t finish the game or worse it could be a break. I don’t see how any “training method” is responsible for some Italian bastard being an Italian bastard.

    • Was about to say the same, I clearly remember the tackle, right on the sideline, I feared the worst at the time then saw the Verminator run it off so breathed a sigh of relief. Obviously he’s a tough bastard and finished the important stint to get us through to Champs League footy. Heal quick Verminator thank fuck we got The Sack in to lead us through it. Koscielny / Djourou play alright next to a decent centre half, just useless together!

      Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

      • Fingers crossed Mertesacker and Kos can do it together. I have no faith in Djourou anymore. Would prefer to see Song at the back and Frimpong at DM than see Djourou trip over the ball again.

        But I do wish people would accept that of almost everything going on the club the thing we are least qualified to talk about is the medical treatment of the players.

        I really wish people would more readily accept the fact that we just don’t know. You don’t know, I don’t fucking know, none of us know shit about this. We aren’t medically qualified and we don’t get to see what goes on behind the scenes. I really hope the lasting legacy of the internet isn’t that it gave idiots a platform to talk shit about things they know nothing about, but I’m sure it will be.
