Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny out until December after Achilles surgery.

Santi Cazorla also ruled out of last two games and might not play for Arsenal again with contract expiring soon.

Agreed and then some.

Given his history of years of acute, chronic Achilles tendonitis in both ankles, this latest catastrophic injury is a career ender because that tendonitis will not allow him to progress through the vigorous rehab that is required to recover from surgery. His tendon will not handle that workload. His rehab will therefore be less intense and take much longer than it would for an athlete with normal, healthy Achilles tendons.

Kos should focus on simply walking again.

We need to start being ruthless with these players. Yes it's unfortunate they got bad injuries, but we're a football club not a charity.

Any deadwood should be binned off at the earliest opportunity, starting with Santi if his contract is expiring soon.

Koscielny is the continuity when we transit from Arsene Wenger to the next manager.
A good back-up veteran player in a 25-man squad.

Merl, he won't play again - not with those dodgy tendons.
If you want Kos to help monitor training sessions and Santi to hang around as mascots, that's fine. But neither should take up any places on a team sheet.

Yes no more sentimental BS.

We just don't have time for that after 10+ years of not challenging for major trophies.

Yes let's hope the days of easy street are over accountability and consequence should be the byword

Before you can bring new furniture in you have to get rid of the old. Wenger's mind was cluttered up with imaginary useful old furniture.



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Yes it was always the case that we were 1/2 players short in certain areas on thr field. Some times defense, CM, strikers, etc. Let's hope those days are over and we don't go into the season hoping kos returns in dec as our 3/4th choice CB. We sold Gabriel and then went into the season with mertesacker who was retiring as one of our 3 CBs along side mustafi, kos, chambers, holding, monreal.

This has to stop.
