Robin “The Rocket” Van Persie vs Gael “G Force” Clichy

Arsene Wenger may take risk on Robin van Persie in Arsenal's derby with Tottenham

Unrelated videos but they bring the lulz

 
Robin van Persie is in line for a dramatic comeback from injury in the north London derby at Tottenham on Wednesday night, providing Arsenal with a boost for the title run-in.
With Arsenal needing to make up ground on Chelsea and Manchester United, the return after five months out for the Dutch striker, who ruptured his ankle ligaments in November, will be a huge stimulus to Arsenal's campaign, which has been undermined by injuries to Cesc Fabregas, Andrey Arshavin and William Gallas.
Van Persie is back training with the first team and has maintained his all-round fitness while injured with swimming and gym work.

Last month observers in Holland were stunned to see Van Persie complete a daily work-out at AFC Amsterdam, a Dutch amateur club, where he was already back to shooting with full force and performing sprinting drills.
Arsene Wenger's caution may mean that he has to wait until next week at Wigan for his comeback but, at present, the odds are on a return at White Hart Lane, a game which, realistically, Arsenal must win to retain hopes of winning the title.

I miss this man SFM. I hope he is back soon but not before he is 100% fit so I am not so sure how I feel about this. I don't want to have him risked and then end up having him miss the rest of the season and the World Cup.

Lisbon derby time

So today was the Lisbon derby. Sporting actually started off really well, dominating the first half and I had to leave for a little bit for school stuff but when I came back at about the 50th minute, Sporting still seemed to have control. Then the first Benfica goal came from Oscar Cardozo and Sporting fell apart. 10 minutes later Pablo Aimar scored and tbh, I felt bad for Rui Patricio (Sporting's goal keeper) because his defense let him down. Big time. Sporting are just. I don't even know they are awful and that isn't even being mean or rude, that is being honest. Do I feel for them? Yeah I do. Their fans hate them at this point. Only 3 weeks left and I feel like Sporting should just pack up and go home now.

Benfica will most likely be champions unless they lose and Braga win, even then it would still take a lot of messing up on Benfica's part. We do have to play Porto but even then, we still are so close to #32.

A more in depth round up and my own thoughts will be found over at From the Sideline most likely tomorrow.

Now, onto the few pictures. Also heavy on the Benfica cos that is all I can find at the moment. Sorry Sporting fans :(
