van Persie In Injury Shocker

van Persie In Injury Shocker

Robin van Persie has been ruled out of action for 6 weeks after suffering an injury in the 2-1 victory over Blackburn.

The Arsenal striker has ...... oh god, you know what, do we even need to go through the formalities any more?

There are more than enough articles in the Vital archives that will probably cover it.

Just search 'glass back' and I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for.

Whilst I wouldn't agree at all with calls to sell him, we surely have to accept now that we can no longer build our team around him. Chamakh and Bendtner are very promising, which is good because as far as I'm concerned, one of those two is going to have to grow into our main striker as we accept that RvP is an occasional luxury.

I think the fact that an uninjured van Persie is one of the finest players in the world yet he is currently 3rd on the poll of who VA members think will finish top scorer is evidence of the spreading acceptance that we're never going to get a full season out of RvP.

Can't help but feel sorry for the fella. So desperately unlucky.

I'm with you there Amos. van Persie has one of the most deadly left feet in the world. I know he'd be considered one of the great if he could just stay injury free :(

But he can't. so move on. It's what you signed Chamakh for, anyway. To deputize in the unfortunate yet increasingly recurring event that Van Persie is injured (shock horror!).

one of my fav players........but is this news anymore.... :( i hope he gets over this and injurys are then a distant memory from then onwards

The saddest thing is that he's 27 now. He's been with us for 6 years and still doesn't have 100 league appearances. Even if his fitness record stays exemplary from now on, he's still lost a large chunk of his career.

Who knows? he could turn into a Sheringham, you know, adapt to score even without his pace and strength. Fact is, you'll never know if he would have been the striker he was predicted to be. So there's no point thinking about what could have been...

Oh good, now Walcott is being strecthered off. Has any national side ever done more damage to a player than England has done to Theo?

I'm certainly not saying that's the case, but with Jack Wilshere's contract at Arsenal still sitting on the table, it's a strange set of quotes from AC Milan's Gennaro Gattuso.
