Frimpong's been Frimponged

Emmanuel Frimpong is injured. I believe the medical term is "fucked his knee" and he is going to miss the rest of the season. This makes me sad.

I just read that "The Metro", used the whole "Frimponged" thing. I am ashamed of myself and just threw up my pancreas in disgust. Frimpong managed to recover from headbutting Petrov's boot against Aston Villa a couple of weeks ago but he injured himself again against QPR at the weekend.. Turns out he has damaged his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and will be out for six to nine months.

Frimpong won't be worried, he actually did this before to his left knee so at least he's balanced it out. He will return to Arsenal to receive treatment from a specialist. Arsene Wenger actually has a laboratory where he has been experimenting with stem-cells. He has successfully managed to grow a new leg on the back of a hamster and the ligament from that leg will be used in Frimpong's surgery. One day he plans to replace Theo Walcott's brain with a clone of Dennis Bergkamp's. If successful, Walcott will no longer just run in straight lines and could actually play through balls and one-twos. However science has only come so far and this certainly won't happen in our lifetime.
