He's apparently developed issues w/ José too. But good to see him hitting form again while Modric is still strong too.

Can someone explain why Robin van Persie is still healthy? At Arsenal he was injured all the time it seemed. I thought the trade would be a dud because he would always be in the cycle of getting injured, healing, trying to get back to form, getting injured again, etc. I was wrong.

Honestly, I think their physios are just absolute shit. RVP is not the first player to be plagued by injuries at Arsenal and remain (relatively) unscathed at his new club.

united game was a disaster of refereeing. in 40 seconds i saw Smalling slide to get the ball only to stop it with his hand then evra flop on the other side. the foul that lead to the free kick at the end was a soft one at best too. countless other blunders, all but one in favor of united. the only thing he got wrong that hurt Manu was the goal wrongly adjudged offside. i don't really care either way, as the EPL sucks now and nothing will change so long as the animals on that island keep forking over for the ever increasing ticket prices to watch overpaid underperforming mercenaries have at it.

the reason is simple, my dear lester, the arsenal physios are a bunch of Dr Nicks. we have the worst health record in the league. Have you ever looked at other arsenal players that leave and suddenly become healthy ? it's because they get treated by medical professionals, not backwoods put-some-moonshine-on-it jerks that the club thought were sufficiently cheap. Henry left with abdominal injuries and played consistently at barca. Fabregas had injury issues till he arrived home. Clichy was in need of a wheelchair most days, unable to go for ariel balls and waiting for the first bounce. aside from that blunder today, he is at least mobile now. look at our injury list, it;'s not necessarily the largest, but the % of recurrence is alarmingly bad. I mean Diaby and Rosicky are best buds now beause they've spent years on that same hospital bed.

One reason they keep getting injured is physical weakness. Wenger said in multiple interviews he doesn't believe in weight training. Now, look at United for example, in their promotional tour of Old Trafford Rio took us through the training routines including heavy lifting--gary neville was squatting 135lbs which is phenomenal for a rodent.

In one of those Soccer AM clips, Teammates I believe, both Theo and another (forget who now) said they never did weights except when injured. You can see that when Aaron Ramsey was out he was lifting weights, because he came back stronger and bulked up. But otherwise all they do is technical training and plyometrics, core strengthening is great but when you play in a league of brutes you need more physical presence too, it also helps prevent injuries and their recurrences. So even on a physical training, Wenger's dogmatic mentality hurts us in the long run.

To us in the "body fascism" thread as fuuma unaffectionately (and accurately) called it squatting 135lbs would be laughed at, even for a runt.  GN squats almost 3 times that and is a runt.  Castrol did the study on CR for a documentary and these are the reported lifts all 4 sets of 6. 

 

Squat                           150 kg
Bench   Press              100 kgs        
Clean                          75 kgs          
Leg Press                    200 kgs                  
Dead Leg                     200 kgs                    
Shoulder Press            70 kgs          
Arm Curl                       30 kgs             
Tricep Curl                    20 kgs
Pull up                        75 kgs             
Bench Dip                    75 kgs            
Bridge x 5                   75 kgs

All of which is incredible. Let's be honest, though. CR7 is the top athlete in professional football.
