Wenger has a new weapon against dreaded injuries!
September 9, 2010
Exaggerate them, make them seem worse than they are, really stretch out the time it will take for the player to come back.
Is it not obvious?
This new Walcott injury and the manager’s comments on the official website seem not quite fitting to me, on one hand the injury is not as bad as expected as the scan is clear, but then he says it will be up to 6 weeks till we see him again in an Arsenal shirt.
Hmmm, come on gaffer, nudge nudge, wink wink!
I think he is trying to build up morale in the squad when the player miraculously turns back in full training well ahead of schedule.
Rvp and Theo are the litmus tests to this theory of mine.
Both were first diagnosed as being out for a couple of weeks, then suddenly the prognosis changed and extended timelines for their returns have been handed out on the official site.
I do believe we have some kind of injury hex over us, but we are not alone, the pikeys down the road will be missing Defoe for almost 2 months aswell following a knock on international duty.
Let’s just think positive and not make this injury thing a big thing, life has a way of giving you exactly what you think of, not necessarily what you actually want.
Gooners in every corner of the planet are moaning about injuries right now, and probably thinking… “who is next”?
well forget it, don’t worry about it, all part and parcel of the wonderful game we love…right?
