The Return Of Rockin' Robin?

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.

I agree. A run out towards the end would be great. I'd like to see Eduardo alongside Ade for the start.

we'll need him sharp for a pretty hectic looking december, so a few minutes won't hurt. Hope everybody else comes home alright tomorrow...

If he's fit then play him. The run out will be good for him and a goal an extra boost.

Bring him on as a sub, ease him back into play. Maybe the last 30 mins or so, if we are up by 2 goals by then. No sense in rushing him back, coz we need him fully fit for the games that follow.

There is certainly no sense in rushing him back. December will be crazy, about 12 games or something, with games against Chelsea & Spurs thrown in there, we need everyone fit.

I'm long of a ticket for Saturday. Would I be accused of being a tout if I offered it on here for face value??
