Van Persie On Spurs: I Don't Care

After all the press and media hype surrounding the hiring and firing going on over at 'The Lane' Robin van Persie has given his opinion on the matter.

He couldn't give a crap.

The Gunners play host to Tottenham at Ashburton Grove tomorrow, and speaking to the Guardian ahead of the match, the Dutch striker said when asked his opinion,

'I don't know and I honestly don't care,'

But he still knows a big game when he sees one.

'The game against Spurs is one on its own and it's a big one, irrespective of where they are in the table.

'They won their first game on Sunday, which is great for them, but we'll see what happens on Wednesday.'

'It was a massive win for us against West Ham that proved we have the resilience to challenge for the league.

'It was a big, big win for us - a massive win.'

He's right not to get involved in the goings on at the Lane. It is just amzing how journalists seem to think a footballer has to have an opinion on everything. Sometimes I think the only reason the questions are asked is to try to get a player to say something they can twist.

Ah there's Woody. Not only a moron but and idiotic illiterate one. Not only does the article tell you he was asked his opinion whilst speaking to the guardian, but van Persie was cleared of all charges and the woman in question admitted she was lying, so he certainly isn't a susspect.

Reporter : Sorry we cant print that either. RVP : Alright just write... Those p***ies can change whoever they want, they will still be crap. Reporter : Sorry Robin, we cant print those too.

If you were to pop over to the Arsenal board and say something constructive, i'm sure people wouldn't have aproblem, but clearly you are looking for nothing more than an argument and it is being treated with the contempt it deserves. Do us a favour and come back when you have something interesting and informative to say sunshine!

When you join in a discussion by calling an Arsenal player a "susspected rapist" you're looking for an argument. I don't know where you come from, but in my neck of the woods, rape and child abuse is not banter, and it's certainly not funny. (Which is why gooner_till_i_dies comments where deleted along with your own)

Every Arsenal fan I know (who actually know's something about the game of football) says this will be as far from a walk over as possible. Spu*s will give blood trying not to lose this one and we will have to match their effort and hope our better quality players, technique and system will over come that effort. Either way the Grove will be rocking and the atmousphere should be effin' mental! I can't wait!

"***** off back to your own board". We have had loads of people here from Vital Spurs who are good natured and add to the discussion, we always (well most of us anyway) try to welcome them.

I can't remember ever being confident for a NLD, and I'm not tomorrow. If anything it's worse, as they are bottom and don't have as much to lose as when they're battling for European places (so not recently, sorry couldn't help it). I bet most Arsenal and Tottenham fans would take a draw for every NLD! They always raise their game against us. FU, didn't know we had many fans in Manchester.

It's actually part of the legal system in Holland that defendants can be imprisoned for fourteen days without bail without ever being found guilty. As it happens, RvP was admonished and the accuser was prosecuted for a fraudulent claim.
