van Persie Thanks Fans For Continued Support

Arsenal captain, Robin van Persie has thanked the fans for their continued support in what turned out to be a very trying season.

Arsenal fans have often been criticised for getting on the backs of players and the manager, however the captain believes they have been unbelievable.

'The [travelling fans] have been unbelievable, the home fans as well, the last few months have been different class. Every single game - the Spurs game, the Milan game, you can name them all - unbelievable." He said on the official club website

'The away fans, they are always here, always singing, always cheering us up even when we are having a bad game, they are always behind us. A big thank you to all of them because they have been unbelievable.'

I know our home support can be a little self defeating at time, but our travelling fans have to be some of the best in the country.

You`ve only got to look back our 8-2 drubbing at the hands of Manchester United earlier in the season to see what great away fans we`ve got.

That 8-2 was the peak of our support this season. Epitomises the phrase, "Gooner through thick and thin"

I watched that one on TV and was massively proud of our boys. Jack Wilshere even tweeted "So proud of these fans, 8-2 and still singing, you're a ****ing inspiration, pardon my French. I love this club". It was later removed presumably because of the swearing, but it was a perfect Tweet that summed up my feelings superbly.

Thanks RVP. I hope this complement is not a subtle indication that you are off and you are just merely thanking us at the end of a long hard, but ultimately rewarding season.

Have to say that the comments he made then and since haven't filled one full of hope.

Thanx RVP for giving us a great season. I also think you owe Arsenal FC fr all those years that you used to play only 10 to 15 games a season. My prayer is that Abu Diabi's injury can be sorted out as well.

Thoughts on RvP? We bought him for only 2.5m. What are we really losing if he goes for free next year? Sometimes as a club you have to make a statement of intent, and I believe this is one of those times. Selling our best players like this season after season, especially to a rival, arguably has a progressively weakening effect on a team. I love the guy, but would keep RvP to the end of his contract if he refuses to sign. He'll play his b0llocksoff because he knows he's in the shop window. And given his history of injuries are we really sure we want him tied in to a long contract? Get in someone like Giroud and we would have the cover we need.

So reports say that no resolution has been reached yet. This has every chance of going the way the Fab saga ended. It would be stupid of the club not to learn form its mistakes. Either get him to sign or prepare for life without him. The longer this drags on, the more its going to hurt us.

Could see us selling him...as long as its not to a direct rival like City or Utd. That would make no sense at all and I'm afraid would be the clearest signal to the fans that this club is more concerned with hard cash than silverware. Would rather he ran down his contract than strengthen our rivals. Can't see any of our competitors doing the same if they were in our position. Potentially a watershed moment for the club
