... the Arsenal midfielder may be out for this weekend's game against Norwich City with a hamstring problem; stumping the momentum from his brace against West Brom last weekend.
Last weekend saw Tomas Rosicky burst back into favour with the general Arsenal public after his brace against West Bromwich Albion kept alive the hopes of a Champions League place at the end of this current season.
His goals were especially timely after Per Mertesacker was sent from the field of play and WBA led a late fight-back at The Hawthorns but to no avail. The salvo from the Czech proved enough for The Gunners.
His Arsenal career has been one of considerable highs and lows. When signed from Borussia Dortmund he was one of Europe’s hottest properties and it was considered something of a coup by Arsene Wenger to bring in the talented playmaker.
However his time at The Emirates has been decimated by a series of injury problems from the get-go and he has never truly realised his potential for the club.
That is of course in no part due to a lack of talent but simply a case of bad luck for the 32-year-old. Such bad luck recently saw rumours over his future at Arsenal emerge. Talk of a return to Dortmund or a move to Premier League rivals Everton soon emerged after he revealed his displeasure at sitting on the bench when fit.
But after his double in the Midlands everything seemed to be on the up and atom once again but typical Rosicky, it seems his momentum has been quashed.
He picked up a hamstring problem in that game and now Wenger has had to admit his chances of playing against Norwich City this weekend are around 50-50. Luckily Arsenal will have been supplemented by the news that Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere are once again available for selection but in regards to Rosicky in general it just about sums the poor guy out.
Things finally seem to be going right for the player. He has the club captain gushing over his talents and the gaffer begging him not to leave in the summer as well as a whole new heap of fickle fans back on his side after an excellent individual performance.
And then he goes and pulls a hammy!
Here is hoping he makes it back in time for the Norwich game and continues to reintegrate himself into the Arsenal fold.
