Arsenal Message Board
I've recently read that Vermaelen is now out for the rest of the season (as is Djourou, you will recall).
I think it's nothing short of disgraceful at times, the way Wenger manages our squad.
He had the chance to buy a central defender in the January window but refused to; in fact he could have bought one last summer but bought that muppet Squillaci instead. Now it has come back to haunt him (again), as we've only got Kos and Sqillaci for the rest of the season and that's just not good enough.
In a similar vein Wenger could have bought a quality keeper in January, or even last summer, and now we've had to resort to scraping the barrel and bringing back Lehman.
You could argue that injuries can't be predicted; unfortunately, with Arsenal they can - we've had more than our fair share of long term lay offs for the past six seasons, so Wenger MUST factor that in when planning the squad.
This is getting like fu*king Groundhog Day, and I'm getting sick and tired of it.

And what about the lack of cover for Song? I knew this would come back to haunt us. As someone said, we will probably win nothing with Wenger at the helm. His ego is too big for our own good. This is the third time we are in with a shout and will possibly get undone by injury problems.
And your a douche. infact, your a douche bag.
Yes okay we can fault Wenger, but the way our squad was playing up until now, no-one saw all of these injuries coming at once, especially not to our keepers. Woj and Fabianski have been fantastic, and so have Djourou and Kos. In january, it was expected Verm would play this season, but he's still having problems, and the achilles is a bitch of an injury to have. It never goes.

Did you REALLY expect to see Vermaelen playing again this season? If you did, then you're even more stupid than I give you credit for.
Come the January window Vermaelen had been out for 4 months and was showing no signs of an early come back. Wenger could, and should have bought then.
We've seen this same patten for six years now - countless injuries and insufficient depth in strength.
Just how many more years of this are you prepared to suffer before you acknowledge that Wenger's priorities/philosophy need to change?
