The Return Of Rockin' Robin?
Could Robin The Deadly Dutchman be preparing to make a timely return to action??
Well if you believe everything the Daily Mirror has to say then it will be as soon as Saturday. The raggedy red top says RvP is fit and has returned to training, and fighting for a place to face Wigan at Ashburton Grove this weekend.
The ever reliable 'physioroom' website has van Persie pegged for a return next week, but footballers are resilient creatures and an early comeback could not be out of the question.
However, and with the greatest respect to Wigan, this is not the sort of game he should be rushing back to participate in. Oh no. If we truly are to be Premiership title contenders, then we should fully hope to get a result against these PL strugglers on a ground where we have only lost one game in all competitions, EVER, whether we have our best striker or not.
Though to see him for the last ten minutes would really brighten up my day.
