Another season of promise for our Dutch forward, and after another great start to the season he is out for months due to injury. Sounds familar? Well, this has been the common story of the 24 year old ever since he joined us. Has he ever completed a season where he has not missed half of a season?
I beleive in RvP, and I think he has the potential to be a World Class striker, but I feel his constant injuries are holding him back. Before he knows it he will be 25 and not much to look back on.
It’s a real shame, because I feel he could tear up the EPL if he wasnt on the sidelines for so long. It’s quite tragic I must say. I am quite worried about him being our number one striker. I think we have to depend less on him as he can never be trusted to play a good set of games due to his constant injury problems.
Robin van Persie is fast becoming the most injury prone player in the league,Followed very closely by Tomas Rosick.
But what exactly is the problem with Van Persie? Was we not told that he has the flu and would be back in a few days? Then we was told 2/3 weeks? Its seems like them 2/3 weeks just getting rolling over.
The Official line on this forum Arsenal is this “Arsenal.com”Robin van Persie has been sidelined since he picked up a thigh injury during the Carling Cup Semi-Final first leg against Tottenham and will not be rushed back. “As for Robin, it has all gone well,” said the manager. “After last time we have decided not to push him and give him the needed time. I don’t want to set any timescale because that means, if he is not ready by that date, I might feel I have to push him.”Wenger”
Will RvP’s injuries stop him from being a great player?
