It goes without saying I suppose that injuries are an accepted part of football, however when it happens to your main man, the pain is apparent to all. Mikel Arteta will be hurting physically and mentally. He has a long road ahead of him and how he handles it psychologically will determine his future to a certain extent. As fans...
It's been difficult to come down from Sunday's high really. One of those weeks when a midweek game wouldn't have gone a miss, just to meet up with Blues fans and staff and reminisce following the win over Villa. Another excellent performance from a very committed set of players.
