Arsenal Message Board
Injuries will again cost points this season as the squad is still nowhere near strong enough and our fitness regime once again comes under question.
Jenkinson if Sagna's not fit. Lets hope Theo, Ramsey and others come back from Internationals it. Swansea could be a very embarassing banana skin waiting to happen. This is a must win game.
Park isn't a winger, wing forward, or supporting striker by the way. He is an out and out striker and only good as a striker, because all he has going for him is his finishing. He isn't particularly tall, or fast, or tricky... so lets hope to God that Wenger doesn't go with the idea you have presented here of playing him on the wing.
I don't think it's in Wenger's nature to throw in 4 new signings stright into the starting 11 especially after an international break an limited time for all of them to train together.
Jenkinson is suspended after the red against Utd, but I expect Sagna to be ok as he had a virus.
Of the new signings I think Mertesacker is probably the one most likely to start seeing as TV is now out again.
Arteta hopefully as he is a premier league player already.
Sagna Mertesacker Koscielny Gibbs
