A smidgen of good news with regards to RVP.
The Arsenal striker is making rapid progress in his rehab as per Bert van Marwijk, the Netherlands coach. If he keeps this up he should be back in the Emirates early April.
A few things.
The first priority for RVP is to heal completely. Incomplete healing can lead to niggling little injuries that can eat away into your playing career. So its perfectly fine to sit out this season. Getting back RVP should not stop us from looking for another productive striker. We will take goals anyway they come but enough of looking to Thomas Vermaelen and William Gallas to bail us out.
