There are some measurements in life that can never be fully known.
How deep is a hole? How long is a piece of string? How high is the sky? What does it mean when injury suggests a player is out for three weeks?
In the world of Arsenal than can range from three weeks to infinity to infinity plus one, but ‘three weeks’ is the early estimate regarding Jack Wilshere. The ankle injury reported yesterday will keep him out of Arsenal’s trips to Munich and Swansea, and beyond that who really knows?
He could make a speedy recovery and be back in time for the majority of the run-in, or we could discover that alien bacteria are devouring his muscles and replacing them with a substance that is unpronounceable in English and has the consistency of warm jelly.
We here at Arseblog News remain sanguine about the whole thing. That’s because we’ve been here before. And will be again. It’s only a matter of time before injuries are so commonplace they spread to the fans.
Ow … shit … there goes my carpal tunnel.
Back in three weeks.
