He’s back…..

The news we have all been waiting to hear has finally broken, Robin van Persie is fit, healthy and raring to go. What a game to welcome him back to, a tasty little away fixture at our local rivals.

Don’t suppose for one minute he will start, but just imagine what a lift it will be to the side seeing him sat on the bench ready to come on and grab the winner and keep our league chances alive. Yes, the perfect scenario but to be honest I won’t care who scores our winner, as long as its scored.

Tottingscum have a cup match at the weekend, I hope it is a hard-fought one, one they lose and on the way get absolutely cream crackered and battered. Confidence rock bottom and ready for the arrival of the best team in London.

Two other players are close to a return, Kieran Gibbs and Johan Djourou which is more good news, I know we only have five games left but having been out for so long both should be eager to get their Arsenal shirts back on and help see us over the line in this very tight run in.

Matt Le Tissier has been talking up Theo Walcott again saying he should definitely go to the World Cup, funny really as this comes after that jerk Richards Keys made a massive gaff and slated the same player during our Champions League game while the microphone was left on!! He should be sacked in my opinion, commentators should keep their traps shut!!

Little bit of news about the ladies, having thumped the Chavs 4-0 on Monday to secure their place in the FA Cup Final, they got themselves up into second place in the league after beating Milwall last night 3-1 away from home. That puts them four points off the league leaders Leeds but with two games in hand. Looks very much like they will be winning the league again…

Lets hope the first team can make it a double celebration..

Have a great day all, I’m off for the weekend to dip my toes in the sea, catch you all on Monday…

    How good is your intel on RVP’s return ?!
    I dearly hope so! πŸ˜€

  3. rico says:

    Morning Evan, its on the afc site

    Finally how about Robin Van Persie?
    “Robin will be joining the squad for full training imminently. That is a big boost for the club and to see Johan and Kieran training with the team in the next fortnight will give everyone a big lift.”

    Morning rico.wonder boy is back!a cracker against the spuds would do no harm at all.I hope AW makes those reinforcements so that we make the 2011 cl final at WEMBLEY.

  5. W.A.T.H says:

    Mornin Rico….. what time you off…?

  6. rico says:

    Morning KTR7 and wath..

    Either after lunch or after the rush hour, about for a while yet, you don’t get rid of me that easily πŸ™‚

  7. rico says:

    KTR7, I reckon he will be in the squad for the spuds, on the bench and if we need help, I am sure he will get on .. I just hope he doesn’t pick up any niggles in training over the next few days..

  8. W.A.T.H says:

    How you gonna cope without me 4 the weekend Rico….? Not very well I can imagine πŸ˜‰

  9. kiskka says:

    Its good news to any supporter of arsenal. But still it cannt make much differance. since the begining of this season i predicted that,though we need the cup badly, arsensl has no guts to win a trophy.and, then i said if we where win any thing we need to buy new players in mid season. So, since we didnt buy any body, there is no hope.
    quote me right.
    good day

    This is better news than we can imagine. I was at Wigan last year (I’m sure it was Wigan) when we were trailing 1 0 for a large part of the game. As Robin got ready to come on, simply by undoing his jacket you could see the physical lift it gave the players on the field.

    We went on to win 4 1 by the way.

    Welcome home Robin.


  11. rico says:

    I’m not wath, even thinking of taking my laptop πŸ˜‰

    brd, nice one, the same score to us against the spuds would be nice πŸ™‚

  12. W.A.T.H says:

    I knew u couldn’t just run off n leave us like that πŸ˜›

  13. kefyalew says:

    Arsenal must be replaced players like Robin who are not involved in full season. Most of the time robin injured for his national team spacialy irrlvant friendly mactchs with Italy and so.

  14. Patrick form Malta says:

    Guys! Cool down. RVP is starting full training. it will take him a couple of weeks at least to get to full fitness!. Him coming back against Spuds was a Daily Mail invention who cant see past their noses. Give it a rest. if he plays a game this season it will be a bonus. In the meantime we need to wrap up the title! C’Mon Reds!!!

    Sorry, my internet crashed 😦 😦

    Welcome to those who have joined us, sorry for the delay your comments were in moderation and my internet crashed … comments will go straight on now..

  17. Jason says:

    This is what I called delibrate targeting

    ‘β€˜Since August 2002, Arsenal has suffered 138 more injuries than Chelsea to first team squad members. In the same period, Arsenal has suffered 86 more injuries than Manchester United.’

    2009/10 AFC 79; MUFC 55; CFC 52
    2008/09 AFC 74; MUFC 62; CFC 46
    2007/08 AFC 60; MUFC 53; CFC 42

  18. rico says:

    Welcome to AR Jason, I read those stats earlier too, I agree with AW when he says that we are targetted by some clubs..

    Arshavin on tonight’s ‘A Question of Sport’

    Andrey Arshavin will appear on tonight’s episode of the BBC One sports quiz ‘A Question of Sport’.

    The Russian midfielder will join host Sue Barker and team captains Phil Tufnell and Matt Dawson from 7:30pm (UK time) on BBC One

  20. rico says:

    I hope he’s on Gooner Tuffers team…

  21. Nick says:

    Chances of united dropping points at rovers is alwayz hoping scum spuds qualify 4the champions league coz it wont happen in a life time as long as th fat one and the ugly one are stil managers at their clubs..how can fat sam meet fergie 3days before their match?if this is not matchfixing then what is!no wonder fergie risked rooney since he has berbatov who will have it easy on sunday.wait till we go to rovers and bone crunching tackles wil come flying!

  22. rico says:

    Popping off for an hour, but will be back…

  23. Hugo says:

    Who’s that kikssa chap in the comments and why does he think that simply because he said something it is an automatic fact?? Maybe we won’t win the league but it certainly won’t be through a lack of guts, as we’ve proved in recent weeks!

    Anyway, I’d love to see Robin knock in the winner on wednesday- I have no doubt that if he’d been fit all season it wouldn’t be Rooney that everyone thinks is the best striker in the league…actually, of course it would, Rooney’s English and Robin’s one of those fancy dan foreign types!

  24. Erick says:

    Robin we have missed your goals, assists and your presence win us the title Hallo Everyone

  25. Erick says:

    Hugo we used the squad we had thats all we could afford but the team showed real spirit

  26. K-TR7 says:

    Actually most of rvp’s are contact injuries,he rarely has muscle injuries.he is really unlucky with injuries.if he had been fit for the entire season he would’ve been mentioned alongside cr9,rooney and messi by now.if he,AA,chamackh,theo,vela,bendtner and eddy click next season we will break all goal scoring records.

  27. rico says:

    I’m back, one minute late πŸ˜‰

  28. Erick says:

    K-TR7 How are you lad True what great attacking option we have there i have this feeling we are on another unbeaten run 49 will be threatened

  29. rico says:

    Afternoon peeps,

  41. Erick says:

  42. W.A.T.H says:

    A sailor on a treble…. hmmmmm saying nothing…! Vodka in my belly Erick nothing in my brain at all πŸ™‚

  43. rico says:

  44. Erick says:

  45. rico says:

  53. rico says:

  54. W.A.T.H says:

    good luck mr sparky…..!

  55. K-TR7 says:

    Funny how fans think AW saying we need something automatically think he means new players.he may have meant new tactics,greater work ethics or better collective organisation in defence.well we just have to wait and see…

  56. rico says:

    KTR7, he said he needs to add to the squad, that means new players in my book πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

    wath, mr sparky is heading for a slap… 😦

  57. W.A.T.H says:

    Well its half 5 has he done Rico……………???

  58. K-TR7 says:

  59. rico says:

    Will be heading for the seaside in a couple of hours, not going to bother fighting with the traffic now…

    Thermals and hot water bottle packed πŸ™‚

  60. rico says:

    KTR7, of course its Real v Barca – that should be pretty tasty, bet Messi is quiet and Madrid win πŸ™‚

  61. W.A.T.H says:

    battery pack for the laptop as well I suppose for your daily fix of keeping up with the avenell’s πŸ™‚

    Glad all come right. Am off so you drive safe and have a great weekend…!.

    Go on the Pompey….!

  62. K-TR7 says:

    Cr9 must be depressed since messi has been outshining him,his ego will want this more than anything and i bet you he will make his presence felt.on the rvp issue,these few games left plus the wc will be his preseason before firing us to the stars next season.

  63. W.A.T.H says:

    Thats if RVP don’t get injured at the WC K-TR7…!

  64. K-TR7 says:

    WATH-RVP will be one of the best perfomers at the wc just wait and see…robben,sneijder,vdv,de jong,rvn…watch this space…
