van Persie Scoops Barclays Player Of Month

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has scooped the Barclays Player of the Month award for October after an electrifying month that saw the 26-year old score five goals and set up another two as the Gunners went through the month unbeaten.



Van Persie notched up his first goal in the 6-2 demolition of Blackburn Rovers at the Emirates Stadium, drilling a low shot beyond Paul Robinson after fine work from Cesc Fabregas. This was then followed by the opening goal in the 3-1 win at home to Birmingham City. The flying Dutchman was again instrumental in the 2-2 draw at West Ham, scoring the opener before delivering an inch-perfect corner for William Gallas to nod in a second for the Gunners.



Van Persie completed his impressive month by netting a brace in the 3-0 victory over North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur, taking him to seven Barclays Premier League goals for the season.

This is the second time that he has won the award, having previously claimed the prize in November 2005.

The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football`s governing bodies, the media and fans.

ROBIN VAN PERSIE: BarclayS PLAYER OF THE MONTH for OCTOBER

· Robin van Persie was born 6 August 1983 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

It's awesome to see van Persie thriving. Injury troubles and having an egotistical maniac as his striking partner has hindered him in the past few years. Keep it up mucker!!

I did to be honest, because he scored against us :posh: (knowing it won't work...) But I clearly mean Italy, Spain and Germany.

No better man for the October award; his growing maturity is so evident, making him a most selfless striker. More of the same, young man!

Very good to see this man on form as he is proving how deadly he can be. I think the 2 best contenders for this months award would've been RVP and Cesc so it's good to see the title go to someone well deserved. Good work RVP!
