a whiff of stink in the armory?

Posted by Mundungus over 5 years ago · 27 replies

Anyone wonder how Jack Wilshere has managed to get this far in Bournemouth without an injury? There is definitely something we are doing wrong.

So you agree we have and have had a bigger problem than other teams, regardless of reason. Good.The reason why we've had these problems is up for debate, but general consensus is that it's a mixture of fixture congestion (being in the Champions League and getting far in domestic cups every year means lots of fixtures close together over long periods), training methods (Wenger's unwillingness to do strength and upper body training until very recently) and style of play (lots of possession means being tackled a lot, paired with the general 'kick them about' attitude other teams usually deploy against us).

Wenger does strength and upper body training. No one does strength and upper body training better than Wenger.

He does now, he didn't a couple of years ago. And see what happened, instantly improved our injury records drastically. Upper body strength training is key to injury prevention, but Wenger spent 15+ years stubbornly training players on the ball at all times.

Arsenal are now installing new 'injury reducing' pitches at London Colney.

Been complaints for years by Arsenal and England whenever they've trained there that the ground is far too hard

Bit late sorting it oit

Waiting 20 years to fix things apparently makes you the "greatest manager ever".
