Wenger says van Persie's injury "doesn't look good"


Written by Chris Wheatley

110 Comments  

Robin van Persie is a doubt for Arsenal’s Champions League second leg clash with Barcelona after sustaining a knee injury in the Carling Cup final defeat against Birmingham.

The Dutchman’s problem, according to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, “doesn’t look good” and means he will certainly sit out Wednesday’s FA Cup replay against Leyton Orient.

An update on van Persie’s injury is expected in the coming days.

Hopefully Robin’s injury isn’t as bad as it looks right now. Jesus, it’s exhausting to be an arsenal fan but I wouldn’t have it any other way…

Van Persie injured ? Really ? The man is a fucking joke and as for today i hope Wenger rots in hell for this – this is what happens when you buy players in the bargain bins you win fuck all – that plank in goal today cost us the only realistic chance of silverware – i hope it destroys him and we never see his face again – arrogant foreign trash – bunch of money grabbing foreign mercenary filth

Who cares ? We will lose it anyway – our season ended when that polish cretin handed it to Martens – i hate wenger for this – whats the point in feeling upset because it will be just business as usual with young players and the likes of koscelny and squillaci screwing it up – there is nothing to look forward to just disappointment – i hope wenger rots in hell for this.

Rosicky, Song and Sagna really let us down today. Not that Rosicky letting us down was a surprise. Wenger should never have moved Nasri out of the centre to accomodate him.

Forget Barca-it will be a slaughter. This team cannot play without Fabregas-and our defence is a joke-not for the first time this season they fold under pressure.
This team does not have a winning mentality-perhaps the weakest team in the EPL from that perspective. Lets stop moaning about refs and face the fact that the team will win nothing under Wenger.

keep wenger, NO. He plays fucking rosicky and refuses to buy someone better than koscielny who i’ve always thought is not good enough, and won’t be till he gets bulkier and learns about positioning and communication i.e. what you need to be a defender. No way would utd have lost that. We need a defence, not a keeper, that’s his first mistake, Koscielny has made mistakes before. He put chamakh on for arshavin who would’ve played where rosicky did a lot better than rosicky did. That is absolutely disgraceful, it’s the fault of you fans who think it was just… Read more »

Nobody is to be blamed except Wenger.For the last six years the gunners have been playing with a handicap. Since Lehman,he has refused to invest in a top class goalie.He has kept faith with one gk after another only to be rewarded with one disaster after another. I think Arsenal are in a way like the Dutch national team of the seventies. They played the best football in 1974 and 78. What happened. They werebeaten in both finals. I’m afraid Arsenal are heading this way. If you look at the top teams in the epl and cl,99.9 % have a… Read more »

I am tired these foreign collection. Song and Rosicky never have the gut to be Arenal players. Wenger buys only French players. They cost us much. We dont win with all these foreign players. No determination and spirit.

Weger said prematch that “he didnt want to get in a new keeper because if we did it would mean we had to lose a keeper and that might damage the keepers chances of making a career in football”…SO FUCKING WHAT….we dont win another trophy for god knows how long in case we hurt the feelings of some inbred polak prick that couldnt catch a cold….UNFUCKINGBELIEVABLE

The manager needs to reflect on games. These bunch of foreign collection could not stand boys let alone men when it comes to spirit. They bottle it year after year. It is time that the fans say enough is enough for Frenchization of Arsenal.

All you guys who fill the comments with obscenities about Arsene Wenger should grow up. All that’s happened is that we have lost a football match by a freak goal due to a defensive error. We still have much to play for this season and 99.9% of clubs in the EPL envy our present position.
We now have the FAC replay against Orient, a home game against Sunderland and then the second leg at Barcelona. The lads must be feeling pretty low at the moment and deserve our support, NOT our manic criticism.

Mates, I’m absolutely gutted too but we need to get behind the team now. Forester made some good saves and these things happen. If we boo and slate the team we are no better then the BBC Plaudicks who rejoice in the fact we lose. As the for Man U team and fans, luck will desert them soon and the fact they love that we lost shows they are scared of us.

lets just try and forget this happened and move on or seriously we will end up with nothing. We never turned up on the day lets leave it at that. Koscielny helped us get to the final with his header and I prefer to think of that rather than his gaffe. Wenger’s got a big job on his hands, he’s got to get everyone motivated again and that’ll be our biggest test. I feel the only way we can recover from this is if we knock man utd and barcelona out of the respective cups we’re in (providing we get… Read more »

Stop all the damn whinning,The Gunners are in trouble everytime they have to start Rosicky. He consistently misfires in front of goal, the defenders got bullied at the back, but the keeper has to come hard for the ball. The goal was his fault, will he ever live it down? Hard to believe the only club in the top four every year has been admirable, but to think that the defense is settled is another matter. Everytime they are scored on they lose their shape, and have a hard time regroupoing. One of those boys back there has to lead.… Read more »

@Tshepo: I agree but it seems to be Cesc more than wenger who controls the team, and that is a problem. It seems the players listen to cesc and not wenger, this is just a hunge but it seems to be like this. Hope persie is back quickley because bendtner and chamack just ain`t good enough, maybe we can recal Vela although he might not be good enough either. Its a dark day for arsenal. But bring on Leyton orient;)

But noone can argue the fact that we lose games when we should easily win them i refer to Wba at home,Toon at home,ipswich away an utter surrender against toon and Spuds a terrible late equaliser against Sunderland and Wigan a horrible disjointed performance at anfield a rubbish performance at Shaakhtar and Braga etc.It isnt exactly like there isnt room for improvement.

Irrespective of the result tonight, we still have a great team. However, when the transfer window open, we should be able to bring in a steel defensive midfielder who will sit permanently in front of the back four. We will also need another striker as we currently struggling the moment RVP is not playing. An experience defender will also be a good one. We need someone who can tell the boys to calm down when things seems out of order.We will still win a trophy this season notwithstanding what the negative so called fans are thinking.

“we have to be proud of our attitude, pick ourselves up and face the other challenges we have. We have massive challenges in front of us, … See Morewe will not throw 38 games away because of one game.” “Both of them (Koscielny & Szczesny) are destroyed. We have to lift them up & help them. That’s what a team is about.” – Arsene Wenger That is the kind of attitude we need, it’s the only way. GET BEHIND THE MANAGER AND THE TEAM. REGARDLESS. Massive part of the season coming up.

Unbelievable; a young keeper makes one mistake and the (plastic) fans have turned on him already. Get behind him (and the team) and he will come good. And for those spendaholics, where is this fabled ‘superstar’ goalkeeper (and centre back for that matter) that would be both good enough and available? We played poory today, without spark and pace. Birmingham had a game plan and stuck to it, and even though it was a ‘horrible’ goal even I (as one of the most biased Arsenal fans around) will admit Birmingham just about shaded the game. Time for everyone (fans and… Read more »

What a bunch of whining children. Boo hoo Koscielny & Szczesny aren’t good enough, Wenger out, waa waa.

Koscielny & Szczesny were good enough against Barca – where were all you moaners then? They made a mistake, fair enough at the worst possible time, but Szczesny will be a top keeper & anyone who knows anything about football knows that.

it is amazing reading the comments of some of the people that have commented on this article. If you are not a sportsman, why do you call yourself an Arsenal fan? If we are winning on every occassion then there is no need to compete. Football is all about winning and loosing and a good sportsman should be able to deal with defeat and not calling for peoples head.
We are all angry that we did not win but what good will it do the team if we start comdeming everyone in the team now?

Not that it matters but I thought the goal was all on Koscielny. Either he kicks it out of the park or he doesn’t touch it there.

Well as a defender, he suppose to consider safety first, even if he had a call from the goal kepper. He can always explain that to the goal kepper afetr making a clearance but unfortunately he choose to leave it for the goal kepper and we got punished.That is where experience comes in.

*Sigh* Another crap result. We could have won the match if Arsene did one thing, TAKE OFF THAT SHIT CUNT ROSICKY & PUT ARSHAVIN IN HIS POSISITION. Instead he took of Van Persie for bendtner (Cry) then arshavin for chamakh (Cry & piss my pants) with rosicky still on the pitch losing the ball all the time and spraying useless pass after pass and getting into rubbish positions. When I saw he was still on the pitch I knew it was unlikely we would get another goal. Anyway four solutions to our problems 1 Rosicky out in the summer In… Read more »
