Getting Right Back To Work And More

9 Sep

803-696-_HES9013Thumb,8So what exactly is this exercise called? The “Backward Human Centipede”?

The players (well, those few that are around) got to work preparing for Saturday’s match against Villareal. Boy do I hate international break. 17 players went out to their national teams and 4 are already back injured: Cristiano (tendonitis), Marcelo (thigh injury), Isco (ankle) and Lady Edith (quadricep). There’s still one more match day tomorrow. Let’s hope no one else gets mangled.

Cris popped outside to do a bit of stretching but then returned inside where Xabi, Edith, Isco & Marcelo were working on their recovery.

Football artist Daniel Nyari, whose work we have featured twice before (here and here) has completed a gorgeous new Mesut piece in his Arsenal uniform. Yeah, it makes me sad, but it doesn’t detract from how good Daniel’s work is. You can follow him on Twitter: @danielnyari

Sigh. Well that’s all for the time being. More bits & bobs tonight.

    i immediately had thoughts of rage and annoyance that cris was even out on the field since he played friday’s game injured. we need our superman in full form!

    do jesus and diego giggle even a little bit if their booties touch? i know they’re professionals, but i’d make a joke.

    Ot seems like you can’t let them on the pitch without them getting injured!

    Aaah Casemiro is a little prince charming!

    Wrap them all in bubble wrap! Or in ice, in Cris’ case, because tendonitis, blech. Hoping the all get back to their best form quickly!

    Lol I saw isco leave his hotel to go home. No idea who he was (don’t hate me but I had no clue how he looked like!) until some boy started shouting😂

    It looks like they are playing an awkward version of ‘tunnel ball’ (does that game exist in other countries?)

      I think it’s a game called “Reach & Grab (the other guy’s ball(s))!”
