It never rains but it pours! This is how one can describe Arsenal’s bad luck with Rosicky, Eduardo, Fabregas and Walcott out with longer term injuries.
But the same saying will soon be used to describe the situation when these players begin to return to first team action.
Apparently Fabregas is near to returning to action and may even make the Champions League game against Roma on the 24th February. Walcott will also be ready for action by the end of February.
The excellent news continues with Eduardo who has already been training hard and playing reserve games without any trouble. He has indicated that he feels ready both mentally and physically and that it’s up to Arsene Wenger to decide when he makes his first team return.
Wenger apparently is pushing Croatia’s coach Bilic, who has included Eduardo in his call up for their friendly against Romania on the 11th February, to play him the full 90 minutes.
Wenger sees this game as an ideal opportunity to ease Eduardo back to competitive action.
And the same can be said about Rosicky.
He has begun training with the ball, undergoing some strenuous exercises and running at London Colney under the close supervision of Arsenal fitness coach Tony Colbert.
He is pictured here on the right.
The expectations are that he will return to action in eight weeks time which, if it materialises, is excellent news.
Here we can reveal that if all goes well his return to competitive action may also be with his national team.
Petra Rada, the Czech Republic national team coach, has already indicated that he would expect Tomas to participate in the forthcoming World Cup Qualification games against Slovenia on the 28th March and on the 1st of April against Slovakia.
We are all keeping our fingers crossed wishing that everyone returns to action without any problems and along with Andrey Arshavin give the boost that the team needs to push forward.
