I am sure I am not the only one left fuming this morning after the news broke about Robin van Persie!
During a ‘friendly’ between Holland and Italy and following a ‘heavy challenge’ by Juve’s Giorgio Chiellini, Robin was stretchered off!
It is suspected and greatly feared that Robin has torn his ligaments in his right ankle.
Well Thank You Mr Chiellini, our potent striker is crocked and could be out for months! A scan will hopefully reveal better news today but I fear the worst.
Just what impact this could have on our season is hard to tell right now but with no Nikki B to call on we are left very short up front. Vela & Walcott are due to train this week so we are left with Eduardo and Arshavin.
Never fear though, we have Diaby and Eboue!
If only Chamakh had signed, maybe now Arsene will get a deal for him sorted out before the January transfer window opens. If Robin has torn his ligaments, he won’t be back until mid January at the earliest!
Yesterday I wrote about Sunu wanting to go on loan, today maybe things will change and he will be drafted into the first team squad!
If the game was a WC qualifier I could accept it easier, but a worthless, meaningless friendly? Robin’s injury was for what? Nothing!
I love the Sunday Newspapers, reading the tit bits on transfers is quite comical, today it’s all about Liverpool are going to ,make a £10M offer in January for Eduardo…. Mmme, yeah right, Go away Rafa!
But that is an interesting piece as Eduardo has yet to be offered a contract extension and he is grumpy because he is not playing enough! That of course may now change..
We plan to bid £5million for Brazilian ace Maicosuel, a 23yrs old midfielder who has been earning rave reviews in the Bundesliga at TSG Hoffenheim!
Hoffenheim – That sounds too much Tottenham when they were sponsored by Holsten to me!! 😉
Another paper says that Big Phil is ‘looking for a way out’ and hopes to go in January.
Marca the good old Spanish Rag took the opportunity to fire silly question time at Fran Merida – well that backfired as he quite clearly told them that he isn’t returning to Spain, he is committed to Arsenal and he is now enjoying training and being part of the first team squad!
Arron Ramsey played last night for Wales v Scotland, the boy was awesome apparently, scored a top class solo goal and set up the other two. If he can do it for his country Arsene, then you keep on playing him. Please though, not at the expense of Song, that doesn’t work!
Today we sit and wait, sit and wait to find out the extent of Robin’s injury, an injury that has ruined my day already!
