  1. Aaron S. says:

    Robin Van Persie and Tomas Rosizky are ALWAYS hurt, and this is coming from an Arsenal supporter.

  2. Ronald says:

    Shay Given on the bench would be a nice addition as well.

  3. tyduffy says:

    Lil’ Mickey should have graduated to the hall of fame at this point.

  4. mike says:

    Rooney is always good for a broken foot each year.

  5. Simon Burke says:

    Bojinov needs to be the captain, this poor sod cant get a break and is out for 6 months after a warm up injury now! Owen a close second.
    Rosicky for sure and where is sicnote, Darren ANderton to manage them!

  6. Darren says:

    Yea, Rosicky should be on that list, no doubt about that one

  7. A bit harsh on Gary Neville. He probably went a decade without a serious injury. Anyone over 30 can empathise with it all going a bit achy when you get to his age.

  8. Beto says:

    I would add Fabio Aurelio to the squad.

  9. Patrick says:

    How did Dean Ashton not make this list?… if he makes contact with the ball during a game.. i typically rule him out for the next 2 games.. if he bags a goal then only 1 game..

  10. Patrick says:

    not to mention… Harry Kewell.. the man had a groin made of glass

  11. anthony says:

  12. sadda says:
