Let them be gay!

London - More than one in four British professional soccer players, coaches and referees polled in an online survey personally know gay footballers currently in the game.

Researchers Ellis Cashmore and Jamie Cleland have sent the findings of the survey of more than 3,000 fans and football professionals to both the Football Association and the Professional Footballers' Association.

"Of the professional players, coaches and referees in the survey, over one in four (27 percent) personally know gay players currently in the game, though none have taken the step of coming out," Cashmore said in a statement released to Reuters.

Walcott is out for ‘four to six weeks’

Theo Walcott is likely to be out for “four to six weeks”, according to Arsène Wenger.

Arsenal FC winger Theo Walcott looks set to miss their first three UEFA Champions League games after being ruled out for four to six weeks with an ankle injury.

Walcott, 21, was taken off on a stretcher early in England's UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier against Switzerland on Tuesday after sustaining ankle ligament damage in the build up to Wayne Rooney's opening goal. Although England manager Fabio Capello initially predicted a two-week lay-off for Walcott, tests have revealed the injury is more serious.

Arsène Wenger, the Arsenal manager, said: "When you see how it turned his ankle I thought it would be three or four days or it would be four to six weeks. Unfortunately it will be four to six weeks. We had some good news about the scan because at some stage we were scared it could be worse. But overall it is a question of patience and rehabilitation."

Walcott had started the season in superb fashion, scoring four goals in the first three Premier League matches, but he will now play no part in the Gunners' opening Group H fixtures at home to SC Braga next Wednesday and away to FK Partizan a fortnight later. He is also a doubt for the visit of FC Shakhtar Donetsk on 19 October.

As well as those European games, Walcott is also out of the crucial Premier League fixture with champions Chelsea FC next month and England's UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier against Montenegro on 10 October.

Arsene on his injured Gunners

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger provided an update on the status of his players ahead of the tricky home game against Bolton tomorrow afternoon.

Offensively, the Gunners have big problems with the Frenchman explaining how Arsenal were hoping to have Theo Walcott sidelined for only a week but after assessing the injury it was confirmed he will be out for more than a month. Dutchman Robin van Persie and Denmark’s Nicklas Bendtner will also be out for four weeks.

In midfield, Frenchman Samir Nasri made a speedy recovery from knee surgery and could be in the regular eleven to face Bolton. If not risked on Saturday, the 23-year old will definitely be fit enough to face Braga in the Champions League.

Wenger concluded by explaining that Sebastien Squillaci, Johan Djourou and Denilson are all physically available although the Frenchman has little worries for the defensive department where decisions on who to start will have to be made.

Ahead of tomorrow’s game, Wenger said:
