Unfortunately he has had surgery and we have lost him for a while. How long I don’t know. He had reconstruction of his ligaments. So it will be long term.

Update

Quote
Per Mertesacker has confirmed that all is going to plan with his recovery from ankle surgery in a detailed blog on his personal website. The German international also revealed his frustration at being away from his Arsenal teammates, especially after a two week period which has seen both despair in Milan and joy in the North London derby.

“I can report that all’s going pretty well for me, to be more precise: for my ankle. I was able to put aside the crutches relatively quickly

“I’m able to walk rather normally thanks to a custom-made boot and a splint that prevents the ankle from twisting. The condition has become more and more stable by the day, so I’m quite light on my feet.

“The ankle is still swollen, but since I’m walking daily more and more fluid is being, so to speak, “lymph drained”. I’m really happy about that.”


Confirming that he will stay in homeland town Donaustaf with the club’s permission – a location at which he has previously received treatment – the German outlined that his next step will be to begin hydrotherapy, before starting light gym work once he is out of a protective boot.

Unable to put an exact date on a return, Mertesacker explained: “It’s only when we get to the phase of placing load on the foot that we’ll be able to see what we’re looking at, in terms of the length of the lay-off.”

Away from his family, but also his new friends and colleagues at the Emirates, the 26-year-old confirmed that he has returned to watching Arsenal on television as a supporter – much as he did as a boy.

“As you can imagine, the Champions League game was torture. And on Sunday it didn’t look good for half an hour or so. But then I thought: wow, that’s some cool club – they are turning it around!

“I almost felt like in the old days, when I followed Arsenal from a distance and felt like a fan: “This is a great club!” I am really proud of being part of a team that is capable of putting in a performance like that.

“I’m already looking forward to being back in London next week (to watch the Milan second-leg), because it is annoying – especially in your first season – to be away from the team on account of an injury. You want to spend as much time as possible with your new team-mates.”
"My beliefs have always been the same. I am happy that the people who love the club are happier, but I've always had faith in what I have been doing."

Analysis of Mertesacker

There were calls throughout the summer, in fact over the last couple of the seasons, for Arsenal to sign a tall, strong no-nonsense defender. Christopher Samba and Gary Cahill were the two most strongly linked. Hilariously there were even calls for Scott Dann or Roger Johnson to be snapped up from relegated Birmingham. When you are talking about Arsene Wenger though, the unexpected is the most likely route of action. He signed Mertesacker for around £10 million from Werder Bremen, a player with 79 caps for Germany and had also captained the national side on many occasions. At 6 ft 6, many expected him to be the aerially dominating centre-back it seemed we required, the reality has been very different though.

The most noticeable thing about Mertesacker is that despite his size, he looks in need of a few trips to McDonald’s. What he’s become most renowned for is possessing the turning circle of the Costa Concordia and the pace to match it. Even with all these negatives, I really like him. While Vermaelen draws all the plaudits for his strength and last-ditch, never say die battles, Mertesacker is often criticised. I feel this is because his work goes unnoticed. He rarely lets situations descend to the point where a last man tackle is required, he has only had to make 3 this season. His reading of the game really is fantastic and his organisational ability has been missed in his absence. You can bet if he was on the field in the North London Derby the other week, Koscielny would have never drifted so far wide to close down Adebayor, leaving Saha unmarked to open the scoring. The player himself has admitted that he has struggled to adapt to the rigours of the Premier League, the mistake against Norwich the most notable example, but he has put in some impressive performances. In December, Arsenal had only conceded 3 goals in 6 games, aided by two great performances from Mertesacker against Wigan and QPR.

These two games probably highlight where Mertesacker’s mental abilities are vital, when we are dominating and likely to lose concentration and when we are chasing a win against a stubborn opponent playing on the break. These two games really highlight the minimalist efficiency he possesses, he very rarely needs to make challenges and when he does he ensures they are clean and strong. In 21 appearances the big German was only booked twice, compared to eight times for the more active Koscielny.

How does he compare to the other rumoured transfer targets from the summer, Gary Cahill and Christoper Samba though? Cahill has since moved to Chelsea from Bolton and Samba put in a transfer request at Blackburn before joining Anzhi Makchakala, both had tough seasons at the bottom end of the table. For ease of use I’ll only be looking at Cahill at Bolton.

Cahill is more of an active defender, however he is less efficient. Noticeably, Mertesacker is the only one to have made any last man tackles. Despite the fact that he tries to avoid them, Arsenal’s high line is something that would be difficult to adapt to and he has been forced into a few. Despite his lack of pace, he has been dribbled past the least of the 3, even more impressive when you factor in the high line. Disappointingly, Samba and Cahill contribute significantly to attacks, whereas Mertesacker has done very little. I often feel he should be more of a threat at corners, although his lack of aggression often lets him down in the rough and tumble scenarios of these set pieces. Frustratingly, and possibly a by-product of his days at Werder Bremen, he often goes up front and stays there when Arsenal are in need of a goal. The frustrating aspect of this being that he plays for Arsenal, route one football is an anathema to Wenger and as a result Mertesacker is often left standing about while a player of more use attacking-wise has to cover for his absence.

After his tumble on the disgraceful pitch at the Stadium of Light, we won’t get to see Mertesacker again until next season, possibly the Euros. Despite a few growing pains, I’ve really been impressed with the qualities he has brought to our defence, which before this season was more twitchy, nervous and implosive than calm, calculating and efficient. His wry smile and later admission of love for the ‘Big f***ing German, we’ve got a…’ chant endeared him to me even more and I for one can’t wait to see him back.

klo soal gol sih hampir beberapa kali dia nyaris ya... Tinggal tunggu waktu. Klo soal last man tackle keknya sih dia beberapa kali ga keburu ngejar striker lawannya deh, jadi bukan cuman gara2 dia jago reading gamenya tapi gara2 ga kekejar juga..

Kemaren nonton Chelsea vs Spuds juga. Cahlil was immense that day, best performer for Chelsea.

Jadi kesimpulan dari eplindex itu, Mertesacker tipe yang lebih ke prevent the problem daripada fix the problem, but he'll fix it when necessary. makanya gak keliatan se-"menarik" Vermaelen/Kos ya hehehe

masalahnya keknya ketika ada problem dan kebetulan dia yg kebagian harus fix dia ga terlalu bisa fix. Jadi bisanya cuman prevent doang. Terutama kalo disuruh ngejer orang  :sweat:

vermaelen kayanya sih bakal dapet tempat no matter what. dia commanding banget soalnya. dan kita butuh itu di belakang.

klo masalah kos dan per kayanya tergantung lawan, kaya yang dibilang gon2. atau mungkin mainin Per di UCL karena experiencenya?
