Cazorla returns for pre-season today

49

Santi Cazorla returns to London today to begin his pre-season training.

The Spanish international had been given an extended break following his participation in the Confederations Crap which took place in Brazil earlier in the summer.

The former Malaga man earned the rest too, he was the only player to be ever-present in the Premier League for the Gunners last season and, in his first campaign in England, that’s quite something.

“I’m very happy in London,” Cazorla told Marca last week when the nonsensical story linking him with Atletico Madrid was put to him, and he’ll be looking to build on such an impressive first season in English football.

It seems unlikely that he’ll be involved in this weekend’s Emirates Cup having had so little time to prepare.

Nacho Monreal also comes back today, but is suffering a back injury which Arsene Wenger admitted leaves him short in at left-back with Thomas Vermaelen ruled out for three months.

Monreal will be assessed by medical staff on his return and we should get a clearer picture of his situation as the week progresses.

Well, it’s not really July anymore, and anyone we sign will have suboptimal squad cohesion/chemistry given that he’s just missed a two-week bonding tour of Asia. Not shitting myself yet, but I’ve felt some bowel movement.

Santi is a little magician. Jack, Rambo, Santi, Arteta…the middle of the park is looking pretty awesome. Imagine if Diaby wasnt permacrocked….it would be downright sick.

The middle of the park would look more awesome with some variety and depth, of course they are all amazing talents though.

Middle of the Park? Apparently the whole of Park is missing for a while. No one knows whether he is in Spain, England or in some Korean military camp.

I love the idea of taking that cohesive attacking play from pre-season and adding Santi to the mix.

I think that the rumours about Santi to Atletico are all about Fabregas, IF, IF, Arsenal hijacks a Man U deal for Fabregas I could see Wenger selling Santi to Atletico. Forward line of Walcott, Suarez, Bernard with Fabregas sitting behind?

Probably the best signing we’ve made in years (Arteta a close second)

Thanks Malaga.

Would like to see what a start we would get if we have santi-rosicky playing together. The second half of last season was one to enjoy so with a fully fit TR7 and santi well adapted to the league, can’t wait

His talent is unquestionable but I pray that the second season syndrome has nothing on him. As blogs said in his post today, all we need in the middle of the park is ONE experienced body who hopefully has a balanced mix of physicality and finesse. Welcome back Santi.

But I thought he was in madrid holding “secret talks” to join athletico after Villa his good friend persuaded him to join?

ah get out of here you cocks!

Cazorla is enjoying his arsenal footie, I doubt the though of leaving has even crossed him.

We need Santi to be fresh for the big games against City, Utd Chelsea Liverpool Everton etc. Give him a break against the Palace’s the Cardiff’s and the Hull’s etc. League cup even the FA cup should be rest time. He will be on International duty as well remember. 30 EPL starts and 10 ECL starts will do it.

Welcome back Santi, let’s hope he can build on that great first season.

Will this be the week where he is joined by more new team mates? I think the blog today is largely positive, it highlights what a excellent XI we have but what about the inevitable injuries throughout the season. I think manager and club are fully expecting at least 3 new players but when this happens is another question. I don’t think we can wait until the last day for all of them. Not with a potential 5 games in 15/17 days at the start of the season.
