No Robben? My brackets are getting effed.
No Robben means I might have to reverse the Holland vs. Brazil qfinal,
or maybe even Holland vs. Italy 2nd round results.

As good as Robben is, I think that winger-deep Netherlands can absorb
his loss, especially vs. Denmark, Japan, and Cameroon. He might even
be able to play in the advanced stages.

No, it has nothing to do with Germany, Holland, or Bayern. Just that
Mueller Wohlfahrt is something special. You might be forgetting that
the team physio (which he is also, not just doctor) is crucial in
keeping players with muscle-pull problems fit. Just knowing how to
power them down after a match, and how to bring them back in training
when they are vulnerable (i.e., Robben was nursing his calf-pull problem
all season). It is not drugs. It is deep understanding of the injury
process as well as the healing process.
He's learned a lot. We had more trouble with this sort of thing in the
90s than we do now.

Plus the NL has been keeping him in cotton wool for these friendlies -
he didn't even come on till the second half today, and has not been
playing a lot.
Good news for me from a fantasy scout perspective as Elia, who scored
today, is his natural replacement.
