Arnie admits the worst



The Austrian international hobbled off with a hamstring injury last night against Cardiff City and though no time frame can be put on his return the player admits that a lay off is now on the cards.

It’s bad news but at the same time if you are looking for positives it is an opportunity for others – as they did last night – to come to the fore.

It’s ironic that after battling through the pain barrier of a knee problem the striker – having just returned to full training – now finds himself finally laid off.

ClaretandHugh was told earlier in the day – and reported here – that he would be missing games but that the number was not clear.

However, hamstring injuries are difficult and it’s probably best to prepare ourselves for him to be returning after Christmas rather than before.

Commenting on his Instagram account Arnie said: i”Thank you so much for all your messages. “I will be out for a while, but I will do everything to come back strong and quick.”

  1. That is bad news I wish him well. However we won without him last night and the team came together . If we keep it up there’s no reason why we cannot keep winning . The players need to believe in themselves & keep working hard in every game . We can still go on a decent run without Arnie we proved it last night, come on lads . COYI ⚒

  2. TBH he hasn’t been that good of late.
    All the hype of him being our only match winner has affected his attitude, always questionable his team ethics. Several times of late he has not laid of the final pass to a team mate. It’s good to have rivalry in the team but having both him and Hernandez together may not be the best for the current moment. Now Perez and Hernandez,with Carroll to a lesser extent can show Arnie he has to fight for his place and forget about a move away.
    Will be interesting to see if Pellegrini sticks with 2 up front or has Anderson behind either Hernandez or Perez.
