Like clockwork every season for the past 5 years, RVP would get injured and be "out for the season". We wouldn't have anyone decent up front to replace him (i.e. had Bendtner and even Arshavin playing up front at one point), and when the fans were getting angry, Wenger would just say "why should I sign a striker, I have Van Persie". This is literally the first injury free season RVP has ever had, and now people are saying he should leave us to win things? We would have won things if we ditched him for a fitter striker years ago.
Reading Javier Miguel's Q&A earlier this week in Sport and he very slyly eluded to how he thinks Van Persie will end up @ Barca.
He's smart to leverage Barça into a hefty contract renewal but I really don't believe he's leaving
Paolo Maldini - "In my opinion, Messi should win the Ballon D'Or each year. He's an unbelievable player."
I don't think Arsenal fans are as biased as Chelsea or City fans.
They don't buy "superstars" and I admire their attacking football.
That is what they need right now,their football is wonderful to watch but Wenger and every Arsenal fans know they are no where near challenging for the League and the CL,they need to strengthen.
Arsenal probably plays the most atractive football in PL, but their not strong enough on most positions. The only real "star" they have is RvP.
At the same time the other teams like City keeps getting stronger and signing good players, i dont think it will be easier next year for Arsenal.
RVP spent 7 years being a sicknote and getting paid for sitting on the treatment table. Wenger put immense faith in him by giving him the captains armband and Bergkamp's #10 shirt with that kind of medical history at the club. It's about time he repays it.
My point is, RVP hasn't given us his best years yet. The club did him a great service for the past 7 years, and now it's time he pays it back.
It is during our annual 2nd-half of the season collapse, usually when we lose RVP for the rest of the season.
