If the rumours are true we could very well see Robin van Persie back for the last six premier league matches of our season, not to mention the Champions League quarter final, semi final and final, if we get there of course!!
The last six games are:-
Wolves – H
Wigan – A
Citeh – H
Blackburn – A
Fulham – H
The Spuds game could be postponed if they get through to the FA Cup semi-final!!
All we have to do is win our next six matches and Robin will be back with fire in his belly, gagging for goals and desperate to win something this season. We need to get passed a tricky away trip to Stoke City this weekend and then take each game as it comes. Play with ‘great belief’ that Arsene Wenger keeps telling us about and come the return of Van Persie the league and Champions League will still be a possibility.
What we mustn’t lose sight of though, is this news comes from the Dutch camp, mme, the very same camp who said Van Persie wasn’t badly injured so until he has his Arsenal shirt on and gliding over the green green grass in England, I won’t believe it! If ever there was a bit of news to lift the rest of the team though, it’s this.
Arsene will be saying ‘Having him back is like having a new signing’ 😉
No Arsene, have a new signing is like having a new signing and come the summer, let’s hope we see a couple. I’m not greedy, a couple would do!
Don’t you just love Eboue? Here he is helping kids in a local school learn to dance. (picture courtesy of AFC.com)
Ok, not really, he is in one of the local schools – all part of Arsenal in the Community’s 25th anniversary sessions with Hargrave Park Primary School in Archway which took place on Tuesday, February 23rd
Good on you Eboue, the kids are having some fun, and it looks like you are too!
Theo Walcott was another player who went back to school recently, no not soccer school! 😉
Theo is the Ambassador for the Junior Kit Scheme and he was in a North London Girls School handing over a new Nike kit to them. Its reported he then treated them to a peep at a few of his soccer skills. Guess he wasn’t there too long then!!
Yes, that was meant to be funny, its great to see Arsenal players out and about doing good in society, rather than lunchtime vists to Public Houses and other seedy joints..!
Theo said it was great to be keeping touch with football at ground roots level, call me an old cynic, I reckon he is on the look out for the young player on behalf of Arsene!
Finally, if anyone is registered on ATV online, An Audience with Tony Adams is on there, it’s worth a peep.. Boy do I wish we had a man like him in our squad!
That’s it for today, tomorrow we can start to look forward to a trip up to Stoke for a must win game – aren’t they all must win now …
Have a nice day you all….
