    This whole no left-back and no right-back situation is pretty annoying. However we have been waiting so long that Sagna is now back in training, and Wenger may decide to muddle along with Coquelin, Vermaelen or Yennaris at left back. His logic maybe January is pretty low on fixtures (remember last year Carling Cup semis and FA Cup replay), and in February we should welcome back Gibbs and Jenkinson.
    Overall our squad looks quite thin, loads of players on loan, however the youngsters need first team game time so I can go with that. If we don't want Vela, Denilson and Bendtner I wish we would just sell them and strengthen, but I suppose we will have to wait for the summer for that so.
    I am gonna stop cos I am totally rambling.

    • Coquelin may have equipped himself quite well in a couple of games, but Yannaris only had his first start the other night.

      The next few games wont be easy, away to a Swansea team who kept us to a 1-0 at home. I do like their goalie Vorm. He looks very good in most games I've seen him in. Then home to Utd on the 22nd. (and we know what happened last time put out a weak team against Utd)

      Don't worry about rambling Andy. You have a way to go to catch up to the nonsense that gets posted here but some other people.

      • Coquelin is now out "for a few weeks" and hamstrings don't heal quickly, TV 10 days, Sagna is still 2-3 weeks away, Jenkinson longer, Gibbs a month and Santos 3 months. Back four of Djourou, Kos, Merts, Yannaris doesn't fill me with confidence. Miquel looked OK the other night but Leeds are a different prospect to Man Utd - best we can hope for there is Djourou Merts Kos TV. Surely there's got to be a right fullback that we can get on loan?
