How Many Does A Centre Forward Need To Score?

How Many Does A Centre Forward Need To Score?

Arsene Wenger has questioned how many times Robin van Persie needs to find the net before it's accepted that he is a centre forward to be reckoned with.

Speaking to arsenal.com Wenger said.

'Robin has scored 28 in 27 games and still people tell me he is not a centre forward. How many goals does a centre forward have to score?'

Wenger continued.

'His movement is exceptional and his confidence is so high that he takes advantages of all situations. I believe that the captaincy has helped to.'

Well it's a fair question. He's certainly not a traditional centre forward by any stretch of the imagination but he's doing the job.

Who are these "people" you speak of Arsene? And why do you let it bother you?

Why do you let it bother you whether something bothers Wenger or not Bluedub? Just as pointless a point to make isn't it. Wenger's was a reasonable observation to make about general comments concerning RvP's role notably among which Bergkamp recently said that van Persie should play deeper.

Why do you let it bother you if something bothers bluedub that bothers Wenger Amos? :) Ok this probably isn't a healthy route for this thread. It's a fair enough comment by Wenger, we've heard it for yonks about how RVP is more of a 2nd striker. Personally speaking I'd rather noone talked about Robin, let's just all STFU let the bloke play and not put any added pressure on the team, especially for those games where he'll be rested (I'm not even mentioning the I word)

Why are you such a ***** Amos? I'm just making an observation that it shouldn't matter to Wenger what anyone else thinks, as long as he's performing and putting them away that's all that should be of concern to Wenger really.

If you'd taken the trouble to think about what Wenger was saying rather than whether he is any less entitled to make an observation than you are you'd appreciate that he was indeed simply expressing the view that all that concerns him,and should concern anyone else, is that RvP is putting them away.

You really are a barrel of laughs aren't you Amos? I'll bid you adieu and leave the rest of Vital Arsenal to put up with your rambling nonsense.

It does usually fall short of the quality of your pointless interjection here Bluedub but I feel the last few posts have gone some way to satisfying that deficit. Would we be any better off if more posters came here to question whether it is worth making any observations other than those making observations about whether others should be making observations or not? Personally I think we can get by without them. But as long as RvP is putting them away who cares?
