Arsenal revealed this afternoon that Danny Welbeck will be out until Christmas following knee surgery.
Gunners fans are furious after learning that the club knew of the extent of the injury, which has kept the England international sidelined since April, before transfer deadline day.
The Emirates Stadium faithful were already angry that Arsene Wenger did not invest in a striker, or any outfield player at all this summer, and now have double the reason to be disappointed.

Lol Wenger’s strategy of not buying a striker backfires, I guess the only option now is Berbatov http://t.co/cAlf02nrAO

Just seen the news about Danny Welbeck. Wenger’s arrogance and stupidity knows no bounds. Been holding the club back for 8 years now.
