Did his knee in training this morning.

“Walcott got injured today in training,” Wenger said. “We have to test it, he has a scan on his knee today.

We are surprised and worried. He was in very good form coming back and that is very bad news for us and for England.

For the rest of the season might be too long, but he’s out of tomorrow’s squad and he could be out of the England squad.

He locked his knee so it could be a cartilage problem. He did it walking back from training :wth: . He was fully normal during training but maybe it only came out when he stopped.

“We have to see how he responds today and I hope it’s not really serious.”

It doesn't sound good at all.

How can our players get injured "walking" back from training? It's ****ing insane. I just don't get it.

Typical Arsenal luck with injuries. Hope he'll be ready for Villarreal. :mad:

Maybe wenger is protecting him from international break? Surely you can't just walk and damage your knee. FFS.

Aargh, nuts, crap and other such generic angry football fan comments of a similar nature. He and Arshavin were killing teams recently.

Fvcking unbelievable. Just as we were starting to get some momentum going. Now we're back to Eboue on the wing.

Walcott offers us something different, he gives us pace, he gives us movement of the ball, he gives our midfielder's more options to pass to, he gives us more dangerous counterattacking. Nasri blows hot and cold, you never know what to expect from him.

He is completely distraught,” said Wenger. “Completely. Theo is strong mentally but today I found him really shocked.

“Walking off the pitch he felt his knee lock up and it started to swell. If it is his cartilage it is three weeks minimum, five weeks to play. That means beginning of May.

“Theo gives us qualities that are different from other players. He’s direct and he has the timing to go in behind. He is an interesting quality in the team, so it is a big loss.”

------------------------------------------

Poor kid :( .

He is always upbeat but this has really got to him. He was really excited to come back and help the team during the business end of the season so it is a major setback for him psychologically also.

Beginning of May sounds awful. He's done for the season.

What are the chances AW is pulling off a Benitez or a Ferguson in shutting down a key player for a few days to stop him from going on International duty?

Is it plausible? At all?

You never know with Arsene.
