Arteta's Injury

Recommended Posts

Basically a place to post news about it when we learn more, at the moment this is all we have (from evertonfc.com)

 

With Steven Pienaar and Leon Osman already consigned to the sidelines, the Scot would have been concerned to see Mikel Arteta stretchered off four minutes in after falling awkwardly.

 

The Spaniard was immediately sent back to Liverpool for a scan on his knee. Anichebe, meanwhile, hobbled off minutes after the tackle which earned Nolan his marching orders.

There not releasing much news yet, its probably going to be a while before we get any public facts. I hope that this isn't the end of Mikel's season, without him, Pienaar and Cahill we had no attacking threat and we just can't do with that from now until May. All that is known is below, from evertonfc.com

 

'Mikel Arteta headed back to Liverpool before half time during Sunday's game against Newcastle United. The Spaniard sustained a knee injury after appearing to fall awkwardly four minutes into the game, and was subsequently stretchered off the pitch. He will undergo a scan to assess the extent of the injury on Sunday evening. Meanwhile, Victor Anichebe was replaced shortly before half time after a heavy tackle from Kevin Nolan. The Newcastle midfielder appeared to come down hard on the Nigerian's shins, and received a red card for the challenge.'

I'd guess he's gone for the season - in fact, if it's no more than that I'll be relieved. serious knee injuries - ligament or meniscus - usually result in at least 3 months before you can resume full training.

 

I'd have gladly taken a loss today in exchange for good news about Arteta.

i heard from a red earlier, his brother is a blue whos been mates with a member of the everton physio team. he has heard from him tonight that arteta has SNAPPED a crutiate ligament. if this is true he is looking at a year on the sidelines. im worrying big time to hear the news on this,

 

if we could manage 6th place with out yak or arteta it would be immense.

We'll manage ok.

 

Think so too. As long as we get Pienaar and Ossie back in we'll have enough creativity to cope with most of the games we've got left. Any hope of catching Arsenal or Villa has diminished but sixth would be no mean achievement after the appalling start we had to the season.

 

I didn't see the game, so would somebody be able to tell me how exactly the injury happened? Was it in a tackle?

Not a tackle really, fairly innocuous challenge, just landed awkwardly.

Yes and No.

It was just the way Arteta landed his leg, he put all his weight on the inside of his leg where unfortunately his knee took the brunt. He instantly waved at the bench to say he was fooked.

:( That can't be good for us. Considering as well we lost Gosling and Anichebe later on to apparent injuries as well from what I read this really can't be good.

Get Osman, Pienaar, Cahill, and Fellaini back to fitness and we should be able to cope.

 

And Baines may even get to have a pop at a free kick or two :) .

 

Incidentally, missed it and they didn't show it on MOTD last night, why did Jags take a free kick from what the beeb said was 25 yards towards the end of the game yesterday :o ? Surely there were better options?

 

Mikel Arteta has been ruled out of action for the rest of the season.

 

Scans have confirmed the Spanish playmaker ruptured his cruciate knee ligament in his right leg during Sunday's goalless draw at Newcastle.

It was one of those free kicks that was straight in front of goal ready to be blasted in. Unfortunately Jags blasted it well wide.

Thats a big blow for us but atleast our run of games are not as tough towards the end of the season. I think as Bill said we will be fine if we can have the others back and injury free but if we lose any of those players we will really struggle to carve out chances.

We really do have shite luck dont we :rolleyes: hope he has a speedy recovery.

"huge loss im devestated he has be playing really well since switching back to the centre of midfield and this is a terrible blow for us

there goes our slim ucl hope and really our 5th spot chacne too

but as u guys no what doesnt kill us makes us stronger and with a team with as much fighting spirit as we still could take 5th spot but even 6th spot would be good from here tbh big loss for us and hopefully mikel can get better soon"

Big loss for us, we dont have players to come in and replace him. Agreed we need to get all our other midfielders fit now and someone needs to spet up to the creative mantal but i just cant see who?, at least (touch wood) are far enough ahead to keep 6th spot. The worrying thing is that you see players who suffer with ligament injuries and it reoccurs over the years so lets hope this doesnt happen to him...

It's terrible news for Mikel but always find the positives,

 

+ We've got a very winnable set of games coming up including west brom and stoke at home

+ We've got Hibbert, Cahill, Saha, Fellaini, Osman and Pienaar coming back, some sooner than others

+ We still held the ball up well against the magpies, we definately lacked Mikel's creative edge but with the players we have returning and 2 quality strikers we can still win the games...

 

Mikel was the last player we wanted to lose at a time like this, in fairness I would have preferred to lose Jags or Jo in favour of Arteta but it can't be helped now and we must soldier on, we've got 2 young sources of inspiration in Gosling and Rodwell, both have opened their accounts this season, Cahill and Fellaini and Lescott are all massive aerial threats in the box and Osman and Pienaar aren't afraid of taking a stab at goal...

 

We still have enough to go on and win matches but maybe not the cup and probably not higher than 6th unfortunately, but looking at it we're 21 points from 1st, and 4 points from 5th it was always going to be a struggle for champs league, if we can secure europe and make the semis of the fa cup I'll be more than pleased with oru performance in what has been one fo our unluckiest years for injuries

^The things that Regulator posted there are some good positives to take from the game. We should be able to beat the teams left without Arteta. He's the best creativity in the team but he's not all we have, there are alternatives.

 

Osman, Fellaini, Cahill & Pienaar can all cause trouble going foreward for the opposition so goal will come. Saha is an experianced striker (Fulham & United) and should bag some more come May.

I must admit that I've not known an injury jinx ever that has been as bad as this one in my 50 years supporting the blues. from what has been said Teta will be lucky to make preseason training and some lads are never the same when they return because they are more than aware of what can happen if they over stretch, its such a shame but we've got to get on with things, what has happened can't be undone.

 

Looking on things with a more optimistic eye, at the start of the season when we had a full squad we played our worst football, every injury has seen the lads up their effort. We can play without Mikel but it may just mean a return to hoof ball. Come the weekend Hibbo will be back in and providing decent crosses, we hardly got one decent cross from the right yesterday. We only have one of the big boys to play so life is not quite as bad as it seems, we are Everton and we will succeed lads :)

It's things like this that make you stronger .

 

We'll have to self destruct completely not to get 6th , so time to bring in the youngsters .

Just wondering... if you're a professional athlete, on about £27-30k a WEEK and you had a six month lay-off.... apart from the rehabilitation of course - what would you do?!

I couldn't agree more with this post.

 

The 6th is the best we can do this year and a Semi in the FA would make me very pleased too.

 

With the injuries we have it is good enough if we maintain at where we are if not any better.

 

In the summer, DM shall be thinking how to make our players more durable to vicious tackles and raid more creative players possibly from Barca youth camp this year?

 

I play FM 2009 and i heard we have close link to the company. So if we look into the database of the game, we shall broaden our selection from Moutinho to other similiar players with lower recognition and of course less fees.

I can see us playing more and more to get down the wings and throw in crosses. Jo, Fellaini and Saha can all be usefull in the air, and without Arteta's guile in the middle of the park I think that will be our best route to goal. Really a shame as we were starting to play some really good football.

Unbelievable bad luck. Just as our season was getting better and better, just when Villa had given us a chance to catch up a bit and our best player gets injured and we draw a match we would have won. 4th place, barring a miracle from the fit players we have left, is gone now. We should have enough to finish 6th but 4th is now only a pipe dream. The cup will probably also be out of our reach now, I just can't see us beating the likes of Utd without Arteta in the team - that being said I do think we still have a chance in the cup but it will have to be sheer guts and determination that will get us through. I would now definitely prioritise the cup if I was Moyes, keep players fresh for those games. We need Osman and Pienaar to step up big time and Fellaini needs to actually contribute something, I know he may have been unfit in his last couple of appearances but he was an absolute shambles against both Liverpool and Newcastle.

 

As for the performance against Newcastle, it was decent enough for the first 20 minutes but after that we had absolutely no creativity whatsoever, not surprising with the players we had out but once again, for me, Rodwell looked a central defender, he just doesn't get involved enough to be a central midfielder and isn't dynamic enough. His passing is nice enough but safe, he'll be a superb CB one day.

 

Unlucky Arteta and get well soon.

Could this season get any worse, injury wise???

 

I mean, does anyone else get the feeling that if Everton had a normal season, with a normal number of injuries, you'd be top 5 or 4 by now???

 

I think Everton need to seriously get numbers on the team. It's clear the squad is thin, and injuries make a big difference in the team's performances. I know that, to make a proper challenge for the top spots, Everton need quality players, but going after big(ger) names now isn't the answer, in my view. A 2nd season like this one could really hurt Everton's future overall, even if they're doing an amazing job. You should have 2 players fighting for each position, not having to resort to youngsters when a 1st team players gets injured...

the biggest problem with a big squad is we have to pay them all. we cant afford to have 30k a week players on the bench. our income is too low, our costs are too high. long term problem, from long term mismanagement.

If I remember correctly , one of the first thing Moyes did when he got here was to throw the dead wood back into the sea .

There are some great players out there if you are lucky enough to find them first before everyone else .

 

There are a few players in the championship called Blake that I wouldn't mind in the side .

Robbie is probably too old now , but this guy isn't :)

All wolves fans I know say Blake is good, we were rumoured to be buying his last summer. If Wolves don't get promoted I expect him and Kightly to move clubs...wouldn't mind Blake.

Some good news for Arteta below

 

'Everton midfielder Mikel Arteta has been named the 'E.ON Player of the Round' after orchestrating the Toffees' 3-1 Fifth Round victory over Aston Villa at Goodison Park. Arteta set up Jack Rodwell for the opening goal of the afternoon with his corner-kick before slotting home from the penalty spot in the 24th minute.'

 

The Spaniard pulled the strings from central midfield with a performance that balanced great energy with superb technical skill and as a consequence, he received an overwhelming 68 per cent of the vote.

Understandable for the winner of the player of the first preliminary qualifying round in about June last year :mellow: .

 

Hopefully Mikel will be there anyway.....watching with about 40,000 other Blue "guests" :P .

Everton have confirmed that crocked midfielder Mikel Arteta faces six months out after being pencilled in for knee surgery in Spain on Tuesday.

 

The 26-year-old will fly to Barcelona with club medical staff on Monday with a view to undergoing an operation to repair a ruptured cruciate ligament in his right knee the following day.

 

Arteta is likely to be sidelined for at least six months but head physio Mick Rathbone, who will accompany the Spaniard for his operation, said he is already thinking about his comeback.

Story on the same subject from evertonfc.com, this story however explains more about Vic's injury and how thats set to heal. It seems to be swelling at the moment, a lot better than first thought.

 

Mikel Arteta will undergo knee surgery next week, while Victor Anichebe must wait for a full assessment of his leg injury. The Spaniard has ruptured the cruciate ligaments in his right knee and will go under the knife in Barcelona, most likely on Tuesday.

 

But Anichebe's right leg is still bruised and swollen and Everton's medical team will wait until the swelling has subsided before completing their assessment of the injury, sustained following Kevin Nolan's dangerous tackle at Newcastle on Sunday.
