Reports: Ramsey facing 6 weeks out


Reports in tomorrow’s newspapers suggest that Aaron Ramsey could be facing up to 6 weeks out with the thigh injury he picked up against Hull on Tuesday evening.

The Welsh international is due to get the results of a scan on Thursday to properly assess the damage, but in the Telegraph, Jeremy Wilson is reporting that the club fear he could miss an extended period.

At this point, 6 weeks is almost a season ender, and when you consider what we have to do between now and May, injuries that serious are not welcome at all.

However, Ramsey does have a bit of previous when it comes to returning ahead of schedule, so let’s see what happens there.

There’s likely to be a further update tomorrow, before the manager meets the press on Friday – at which point we should definitely know for sure.

Fingers crossed.


    • Wouldn’t be shocked to see that happen, but I hope not. Tactically he’s getting it wrong, but in terms of effort and quality he’s definitely one of our best. Will be missed.

  1. Bad news. Hopefully elneney can slot in and continue his good performances. I like Ramsey, but Elneney in the middle makes me less anxious

  2. In every bad thing there is some good, as the saying goes. Now Arsene will be forced to give more playing time to Joel, who has rightly deserved it by the way he has played, however knowing how Arsene wants to push Ramsey to play in every single game, he occupied Joel’s natural position (as well as the Ox, who was rubbish 99% of this season). Looking forward to it. Hope that both Campbell and Elneny start against Barcelona, why not, with a more balanced team we could cause them some problems.

  3. Drives me fucking crazy what is it with subs not warming up properly they are too cosy sitting on the bench with about fifty layers of clothes on takes them an eternity to get ready when they are called upon. Obviously no lesson learned from the Sheffield Wednesday game.

  4. I’m genuinely worried about our midfield situation. This leaves is with Coq and Elneny (who have looked solid together) with just Flamini as cover. Other options – Santi, Jack, Arteta, Rozza and now Ramsey all on he causality list.
    Joel deserves the right wing. I just hope Theo comes good and Iwobi can step up in the league if needed, cause we’re a couple of injuries away from having to rely on our young guns.

  5. A loss but we do have decent cover in Prince of Egypt and Campbell.

    For all the pre season talk of Arsene needing to buy a striker it’s really in midfield where we have suffered the most despite having the most cover…

    • We do have cover, but with a still-packed schedule of fixtures, I worry at how our depth will be tested. Additional injuries could be devastating at this point. Three challenging matches in a seven day span next week likely means little rotation, and the subsequent international break will certainly not be a time of rest and recuperation for some of our players.

  6. Not holding my breath for his return, though it would be great to have him back in time for another winner in the FA Cup Final.

  7. Just as we were about to look more solid with him on the right tucking in.

    Oh well, Joel Campbell your time to shine.

  8. Seriously pathetic how not only do our players drop like flies more than any other team but also that it’s very rarely for a week or 2, it’s always a minimum of six weeks!

  9. bad news for sure. despite what some say, he’s an important piece to the run-in

    on another, physiological note: does anyone know what exactly these ‘scans’ reveal? what do they show specifically? when the medical staff take their fancy pictures, what do they see? i’m suffering my own injury and looking for medical advice on an arsenal-related blog (the best one, by the way).

  10. This could end our season!!! If Conquelin gets injured our first team midfield is elneny and flamini. When John Terry had an injury the medical team would give him a syringe to get through it, to numb the pain why cAnt our lads be willing to do stuff like this, they’re all soft imo. We need a good distributor in cm who can help move our play forward like arteta but who hasn’t lost there legs, cazorla or put ozil there and bring Alexis to just behind the striker, I’ve done this before, it can work.

    • Yeah there’s a magical little chemical mixture that when injected can allow players to play through anything, no matter the injury.

      Or, maybe players play through pain all the fucking time, and John Terry’s a huge cunt.

    • That’s right you do it on PlayStation and it worked. I will try on my subbuteo and if it works there too then it has to work. does anyone have the follow up to subbuteo, striker I think it was called where you push the head down and the little plastic toy kicks the ball. If you could try on there as well we are in to a winner

    • Remember when Ozil decided to tough out a knock a couple of seasons ago? How long was he off for? A couple of months? More?

  11. I’m totally gutted. He didn’t have much time to warm up and that may have caused it. I think we’ve got enough cover with some of youngsters coming through. Hopefully he gets a speedy recovery in time for the FA Cup final.

  12. Bad news as,although some fans ain’t keen on him, Ramsey is one of our top performers who has had to curtail his style to cover for other injured players and this has impacted on his effectiveness!!!

  13. Walcott comes on against sheffield wednesday without warming up, gets injured and is out for a couple of months. Rinse and repeat for Aaron. When will we learn. Arsene’s subs are baffling at thier best but this is just stupid. If I am not mistaken we were 2 0 up when Aaron come on, does the sub have to come on as soon as the other player leaves the pitch or can he come on 5 minutes later?

    • As a pleb and not in the know of how a club with top level sportsmen like Arsenal do things but wouldn’t the subs be pacing up and down the side lines at regular interval to be ready when or if?

  14. And on the 10th day God said “fuck off Aaron your goals are sending too many celebrity’s up here” and with that he sent down a messenger to bajax thy Ramsey son of all injury’s. And with that on the 11th day it was done. Amen.
