That’s when Robin van Persie says he will be back, and just in case it’s my chimney he selects then there will be a great big cushion in the grate to make sure he gets a soft landing! 🙂
I will miss our Robin, big time! For so many season’s he has had a niggle here or there, but finally this year it seemed as if the boy wonder was going to send us all a bit crazy….
I know we discussed this yesterday but AFC need to stop allowing players to play for their country in worthless friendly’s – as Rasp said, had Robin not played, he wouldn’t be injured would he. Arsenal pays the wages of the players not the country for whom they play for and its about time they let the players know that!!
Added to that, why the bloomin heck are friendly matches being played during a WC qualification period…
Beggars belief doesn’t it!
Anyway Robin is out and I am curious as to who Arsene Wenger will play next Saturday against Sunderland.
Both Vela and Walcott are only just back into post injury training, so they won’t be ready, unless of course they were ‘kept back’. That leaves us with one ‘striker’, yes I am right, I checked the first team on afc.com!! 😉
That striker is Eduardo.
So Eduardo, are you ready to fill the boots of Rocky Robin…??
Nah, I don’t think so, I would like to think so, but I don’t! But on the bright side he scored two for his country so maybe that form will come back to his club and he proves me wrong.
Enough of me going on about how much I will miss Robin, better news comes from an old man who now manages England under 21s – Stuart Pearce reckons Gibbs will be a super star… Well Pearcey, play him at LB and he will get there sooner!!
It’s not rocket science, he is not a left sided midfielder, he is a LB!!
Capello thinks Gibbs could go to South Africa as cover for Cole, and Pearce plays him in midfield… Arrrggggg
Maybe on Tuesday he will get to play in his natural position.
Chamakh is being linked to all the big clubs now, with van Persie out I can see us getting involved in the January sales regardless of his festive return. Even if that prediction is right he will take a while to find his feet again and maybe Chamakh would be the right man to try and fill the void. I am hoping and even expecting us to still be in both of the domestic cups as well as the title chase and Champions League. Chamakh can play in the cups leaving the players we have to fight for the CL as he will be cup tied.
Jose Reyes has joined in the Cesc debate, but good on him for doing so. He has said that Cesc will not be leaving Arsenal –
“People talk about Cesc Fabregas as if his move back to Spain is imminent but I can’t see him leaving Arsenal now or in the foreseeable future,” Reyes told The Sunday Mirror.
What does he know eh, but on that note…..
Have a good day – we are back into a week where we can look forward to Arsenal playing football on Saturday 😛
