This is bad news. To be honest I'm getting seriously worried that we'll never see Jack in the team again. Hopefully it's a case of Wenger lowering expectations and the club being ultra cautious with his return but it is worrying indeed.
After watching the pre-season games (keeping in mind this is pre-season and more about fitness levels than anything else) The same problems seem to be there, namely our defence and that our backup players aren't good enough/experienced enough. Again, I can't stress enough that this is pre-season so not a big worry yet.
On the plus side Diaby has looked very good, I really hope he stays injury free this season and gets a chance to show what he can do, I've always rated him and think he could be great for us. Walcott has looked lively and the Ox has been, well the Ox! I really am glad he's at Arsenal. Also Eisfeld looks good.
I'm reasonably happy with our first team, Song & Walcott contracts sorted and a few more signings and I think we've got a team that can compete next season. I think we desperately need top quality DMF and LB, perhaps with Santos being pushed further up the pitch this is in Wengers mind as well.
Either way, I'm excited about seeing us winning the quadruple while not losing a game, scoring 150 goals and keeping 28 consecutive clean sheets next season. Hey, if my little lad can do it on 6 star difficulty on Fifa, surely the team can do it irl...
