Robin van Nursie

Robin van Nursie

Robin van Persie will be out of action again this weekend.

The deadly Dutchman returned to action against the Spuds at Ashburton Grove on Wednesday night but was withdrawn at half time after a display in the first period which showed the player was clearly unfit.

RvP has now been ruled out of tomorrows game against Birmingham not only with a minor injury but also with a dose of the flu.

Le Boss doesn't know how serious his injury is due to his rabies or what ever it is he's got, but believes it is only 'minor'.

Speaking with ATVO AW said, "There is no real news because he got flu overnight, he is in bed and the doctor has gone over to see him. That means he is out for Saturday`s game anyway. But we don`t believe it is a real recurrence of the injury and it might be minor."

The amount of time Rob is spending on the treatment table is quite worrying. With obvious class and talent to be one of the top strikers in the game, we really need him on the pitch for more than 45 minutes at a time.

lol ridiculous situation this, I'm losing all hope that he can develop into the player his potential suggests. The man is made of glass, okay this time its a bout of the flu but my guess is he is still injured.

The thing is, if he went down with flu immediately after the game, it would suggest the virus was there on Wednesday night, which would have made his muscles weaker. I'm still not too worried. His absence has given Bendtner and Eduardo a chance to shine which could come in useful at the end of the season.

I'm with you on that one Hazza. He's now lost almost a whole season's worth of development due to injuries (if you count half of last season too). It's getting a bit worrying.

I'm not worried about his "development" his already one of the best striker around........however he's no use to anyone if he's not on the pitch,

I'd play Eduardo & Bendtner for the first half tomorrow & then give Theo a 45 minute role as a striker in the second half. He's clearly never going to be a winger, so he needs the opportunities whilst players are injured to show that he is capable, if not then obviously come the summer Wenger needs to look at other options. I think we'll struggle tomorrow because the players that have basically had a 2 week break never come back & straight into form, so I just hope Wenger's plans don't backfire on him. Birmingham may be rubbish, but they don't seem to be conceding too many goals.

Goofle, I don't believe they'd work well together.

Senderos being passed fit for the Birmingham game has just ruined my friday. I'd rather see Walcott or Eduardo play there than that incapable lump!!
