Bad to worse as Walcott dislocates shoulder

45 comments November 18th, 2008

It never rains, but it pours.

With the side struggling, the last thing we needed was to lose one of our more in-form players during this most pointless of International breaks.

But when things aren’t going well, the last thing one needs is inevitably the first thing that happens, and the fears of Arsene Wenger can only have been confirmed tonight by the news that Theo Walcott has discolated his shoulder.

I hear it’s not the same shoulder he had an operation on in the Summer of 2007, but at this stage it’s hard to know whether that’s a good or a bad thing.  Walcott has a ligament weakness which burdens him with a natural propensity towards this kind of injury, and we can only hope that this isn’t the kind of dislocation that will reoccur as his career progresses.

In the short-term, we’re left in the awkward position of praying for Emmanuel Eboue to return to fitness whilst we wait for news of the extent of Walcott’s injury.

Only glorious day against United apart, this really isn’t a fun month for Arsenal fans.
