Van Persie out for another few weeks, again 17 January, 2008

Posted by lasagnechef in Arsenal News.


I don’t know about you but Robin van Persie’s injury situation is really, really starting to piss me off. He’s so fragile, picks up a bad injury then all we fucking hear is ‘two more weeks’, then ‘two more weeks’ then again ‘two more weeks’. It’s getting to the point where I can’t even think of him as a member of our squad this season. I remember he had a good few games at the start of this season and scored a few but he’s played like one game since then.

He recovered from his extended break to play the first half against Spurs in the Carling Cup semi and got injured in that. Then he got a bad case of the flu, and now we’re being told he’s out again:

“Compared to last week we have Robin van Persie who is out for a few weeks. I believe Tomas Rosicky will be OK to come back. But Johan Djourou is out as well. He has had an inflammation of his groin and in the next two weeks he will not be capable to play.”

Ridiculous. I’m not calling for him to be rushed back from injury like that, it’s just incredibly, incredibly frustrating as a fan. Without Cesc we have Adebayor, Eduardo and Bendtner who don’t exactly fill me 100% confidence, with van Persie on the pitch I feel like we can win games in any moment. There’s nothing we can do about it, some say we should sell him. Who’d buy him though? I wouldn’t go as far to say he should go but it upsets me that I’ve contemplated it.

In other news Diarra’s move has been officially announced and he says he’ll get games there. Will he now? That’s marvelous. He’s also proved how much of a twat he is again by saying that he wouldn’t be a Portsmouth forever or something; it might be true but that’s not what you say on your first day after signing for a club! Stupid dolphin looking knob.

Wenger also talks about how Fran Merida’s loan move will be great for his development. However the 17-year-old has already seen his manager at Real Sociedad, Chris Coleman leave after only a few months. Oh dear. I hope Fran gets some games out there.

That’s about it for today. We’ve got Fulham on Saturday so I’ll write up a preview tomorrow.

Before I go, I’d just quickly like to ask a cheeky favour. My Dad entered a photo for that O2 Arsenal Opus competition that’s been advertised and he made it down to the final 11 photos. It goes down to the public vote and I’d appreciate it so much if you’d take two seconds to go and vote for his photo. Just click this link and my Dad’s photo is the ‘Flying High’ one:


If you get round to doing that, thanks a lot. I’ll let you know how he gets on.Thanks for reading.
