The injury list continues to grow. Julio's beastly groin had been pulled against Bolton and now is a doubt for the carling cup second leg.
With the rearranged Manchester City match soon to be re-rearranged again because of the FA Cup replay to Bolton. The games are piling up now which will take its toll on our squad.
Just as it seemed that everyone was coming back it now seems that the curse of the injury hasn't gone away yet. Van Persie, Hleb, Eboue, Ljungberg, Gallas and now the beast. Wenger has hinted that he may be forced into a 'panic buy' which seems a a bit strange has we have Bendtner on loan and scoring goals at Birmingham, although I don't think we can have him back until the end of the season.
I think we can cope with Henry, Adebayor, Walcott and Ali. After watching the first leg of the carling cup game I thought how it would really benefit the squad to have a real genuine winger who has pace and skill to take on defenders. Alot of people would say we have young Theo and that he is only 17 and will be that player for us. But I don't think Walcott is the kind of player who has quick feet to turn defenders inside out much in the way that Robben does at Chelsea, Ronaldo does at Manchester United and Lennon does at Tottenham.
We have been linked for a summer swoop for Ribery who would give us that same quality, but as with Big Baps.. Who do you leave out? This is a problem for the summer and not for now. In the short term for us to continue our resurgence we need to keep our players off the injury table.
