I really hope that Robin Van Persie and Tomas Rosicky can both overcome their injury problems and remain injury free next season.
Van Persie is obviously playing sparingly for Holland at the moment and I hope he has a great tournament and returns to pre-season with Arsenal ready for the new season.
Rosicky says he won't be back to training until August. I think that is due to recovery time from his recent operation.
They have been so unlucky over the last couple of seasons with their injuries and I sometimes worry that they won't fulfill their potential.
Both are excellent players, I'd go as far as saying World-class players, but they need to steer clear of these troubles and show us what they can do over a season, not just for a limited time.
I hate to say it but if they continued to get these injuries then they are fast becoming liabilities. It wouldn't be fair to players with so much ability to not be able to showcase it. And what better club than ours to do that?
I think we miss Rosicky so much he doesn't play. He is a very clever player and I rate him very highly.
Van Persie has the sweetest left foot in the WORLD to me. He strikes the ball so cleanly and like Rosicky is a very intelligent player.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for both. A fit pairing of Rosicky and Van Persie will make a difference to Arsenal next season.
We were close last season, with players like those two fit, we might even win it.
Keep it Goonerish...........
