Wenger Hails Technically Perfect RVP

Wenger Hails Technically Perfect RVP

Arsenal gaffer Arsene Wenger has hailed van Persie's amazing strike as 'technically perfect'.

Ever since the ball smashed into the back of the Charlton onion bag, every football fan in Europe has had some thing to say on the goal. And Arsene Wenger is no different.

'It was outstanding, quite unbelievable. Nobody expected that. When Eboue crossed I did not see anybody in the box so it thought, like many times, we have nobody in there. Then suddenly Van Persie arrives.

'Technically it was perfect, with full pace and power. I felt the ball would go over the bar at the start, then it finished in the top corner. It is the goal of a lifetime.'

When Wenger was asked if it was the best Arsenal goal under his reign, he replied,

'The best? I must check that because I have seen some good ones. But it is certainly in the top five.'

And he's never wrong.

Ripsnorter? Ha ha. Isn't that something Mark Bosnich does in toilet cubicles with five pound notes?

It's actually a David Lloyd phrase, but I like it, it's sounds quite apt!!

I like it, I'm going to add it to my own personal thesaurus along with bouncebackability. In my third year at uni, I managed to get the word 'quasi-phantasmic' into an essay. Who needs vocabulary when you can just make words up?

I'd weigh in with Pires v. Villa, pure class. RVP's at home to Blackburn was pretty special, we've been spoiled in this category.

I think that Rosicky against Hamburg was the best. Not only because it was a great goal, it was at a time when Arsenal were struggling. Rosicky had a hack and showed the Gunners that you are actually aloowed to shoot! Think about it, ever since that goal we've been having shots from everywhere and playing much beter
