Video: 20 Goals & 13 Assists from van Persie

Video: 20 Goals & 13 Assists from van Persie

After finally avoiding the physio's treatment tables for the majority of the season, Robin van Persie was able to show the Premier League his unique set of attacking skills for the first time during his 5 year tenure in North London since signing for a mere 2.75 million from Feyenoord. His ability on the ball was already well known, but persistent injuries and a rash temperament kept him from fulfilling his full potential. His tally of goals and assists make him a rare talent. A striker who can score goals from nothing, as well as someone who thrives on setting up his teammates. Here's to this being the beginning of a long successful period for Arsenal's next Flying Dutchman.

Like Tim has mentioned many times before, Robin has really evolved into a great player this year. Working on being less selfish and the improved use of his 'chocolate' right foot are his real highlights from the season. If you would have told me 5 years ago, that the kid that lunged in on Graeme Le Saux would eventually wear the captain's armband at this club, I would have had a nice laugh at your expense. Maturity is what has made van Persie brilliant this year.

Ronaldo's talking to Real, £80m bid accepted. Glad that twunt is leaving our league, but frightened by what Ferguson can do with £80m.

Exactly my 1st thought LD. Lets hope that the Glazers use the money to fund the club's losses, but the pressure will be on Fergie to sign a big name replacement. Ribery/Villa/Benzema to ManU will soon be doing the rounds and ManU could be much more dangerous next season.

Ribery, Valencia or both will be on their way to united. 80 Mil is good business really. You can but Ribery(35-40m), Valencia(15m), Glen Johnson(10m) a decent centre midfield player(15-20m) and arguably be much stronger than just having ronaldo. Its also amazing to think Real madrid can finalise deals for Kaka, Ronaldo and probably Villa yet we will wait a month before comfirming Vermalean.

That video was a reminder to RVP's critics (myself included), that he could be the difference b/w a good side and a great side - if he can form a partnership with someone up front - it could be Arsenal's next great front pairing. Who did people prefer alongside him?

I imagine thos transfers were concluded quickly because the talks would have gone along the lines of; "Right Mr. Barry, we're offering £!20,000 a week." Wouldn't take long. Incidentally, does selling Ronaldo now make United a seeling club? Cos I thought that's what we were supposed to be?

Oh and stay glued to the wireless kids. With Madrid piling on the debt and stockpiling foreign talent, admonishment from Platini and Blatter should be out on the wire any minute now..............
