Wenger Should Read And Take Notes!

Former Arsenal star Robin Van Persie is delighted for being able to come back from missing a penalty, and scoring another two goals in the last game he played for Manchester United.

The Dutchman managed to score two times the amount of goals his former club Arsenal have so far in the season, certifying that the Gunners have managed to lose an incredible player when they lost him to their biggest rivals. He then declared the fact that he wouldn’t have been able to do that a couple of seasons ago when he was still at Arsenal.

‘A career won’t be always a bed of roses. You have disappointments,’ he said.

‘Look at my missed penalty kick against Southampton last Sunday. That is what you call a disappointment.

‘Taking a penalty kick in that way when you are 2-1 behind. That’s just bad.’

‘I couldn’t explain it, not even to myself. And what you do next? Do you stay disappointed? Or are you going to hunt, and get over it?

‘In the game I put it behind me, thankfully. Many people can get swept up after something like that. It’s happened to me (before) and it’s all over then.

‘Someone who is 18 years old wouldn’t score two times after it. I wouldn’t have done a couple of years ago. You have to be lucky, but you also have to force it. ‘

If you are to ask me, this statement is one Wenger should really have a close look at. Buying kids and turning them into amazing players is extraordinary for any club, especially one which wants to be financially safe. The problem comes when those players, now turned into spectacular world-class athletes, are allowed to leave the club and join other richer clubs (like City or Barcelona) and help them win trophies.

Cazorla Demands Song And RVP Replacements

Newly transferred Arsenal star Santi Cazorla has declared his delight for debuting at Arsenal, but has also spoken about the importance of bringing in top players at the club, who could replace the losses of Robin Van Persie and Alex Song.

According to the Spanish international, 10 days is a lot of time for transfers to be brought in, and knowing what happened last season when Wenger brought in a host of players in the last week of the transfer season, it’s decent to say that at least one will still join the Gunners.

“It’s clear that Van Persie is a great player and obviously we would all have preferred it if he had stayed. Song has gone as well and there are still 10 days left in the transfer market.

“I do not know if we will sign anyone but obviously it’s important to replace players like that because they were so important for the team.”

Cazorla couldn’t be more right. We all saw the way Chelsea and City played over the weekend, and if we are to be hones, Arsenal stands no chance to win the title if they won’t up the game. Arsene Wenger’s lack of action in the Hazard case granted Chelsea an extraordinary player, and frankly speaking it’s time for the Frenchman to bring in at least one more top player, because the arrivals of Cazorla, Podolski and Giroud probably excited all Gunner fans.

Arsene Wenger Expresses Sadness Over RVP Exit

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed the fact that, unfortunately, captain Robin Van Persie will leave for Manchester United. The Frenchman has admitted that he was forced into selling Robin and that there wasn’t much he could do, despite the fact that he wanted to keep the Dutchman.

According to Wenger, the striker’s position will be filled by Giroud and Podolski’s arrivals, the club having previously stated that the French striker had been brought in to boost the attacking options.

“He is at Manchester United, unfortunately for us. The transfer was finalised in the afternoon,” said Wenger whilst working for French TV station TF1 on Wednesday.

“It’s never great to lose players of that quality but he only had a year contract so we do not have a choice.”

“We have already recruited since we Giroud and Podolski who originally were intended to offset the departure of van Persie,” he concluded.

Robin had the greatest season in his life last term, so it’s sad to see him go, but Arsenal have to go on fighting without him. The departures of Nasri and Fabregas left Arsenal fighting to get the third spot last season, so hopefully now having lost only one player and having brought three very important ones, perhaps the Gunners will be able to make those who left regret their actions.

Will Robin Listen And Stay?

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is getting unexpected support from Dutch defender Ron Vlaar, who is pushing Robin Van Persie to stay with the Gunners amidst rumours linking him to a possible leave to Italian side Juventus Torino.

After just signing with Aston Villa, Vlaar is now vehement in saying that Robin should stay in England, but admits that he has no certain information which can point to a possible stay.

“I talked to Robin and several other players during the Euros,” said Vlaar.

“Robin told me if I had the chance then to come over, but it was still my decision and I’m very happy Aston Villa came in for me. I’m happy the deal was done.

“I really don’t know where he is going. I haven’t talked to him lately. I just hope he stays in England so I can face him. I’ve trained against him with the national team and he is a great player.

“It would be a big loss if he leaves England.”

Arsene Wenger has named the Dutchman to play in the German training camp, but a contract hasn’t been signed yet between Arsenal and Robin Van Persie, with the Dutchman still delaying the talks.

Arsenal Sell Van Persie To Juventus

A shocking rumour was launched today as Italian agent Fabio Parisi, who is also representing Robin Van Persie, has declared for an Italian television show that the dutch star has signed a contract with Arsenal’s star.

After launching such an incredible rumour, Parisi went back on his word a bit and claimed that it’s only a supposition and that this is what he things, although we have to admit that it seems a bit fictive to say the least.

‘I think Juventus have had a signed contract with Van Persie for some time locked away in a notary’s desk.

‘It is just my opinion, but I think there’s an eight out of ten chance the Dutchman will join the Bianconeri.’

Robin Van Persie might choose to join the Italian club, but it’s highly unlikely for him to have already agreed upon a deal given the fact that he’s still training under Arsene Wenger. He hasn’t traveled with the club to Asia and that’s not a good sign, but some people surrounding the club, especially Arsene Wenger who has stated that he hopes for Robin to have a change of heart. What do you think will happen?

Ancelotti Announces Robin’s Departure

Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti claims that he’s not interested in ripping Wenger of his most important man, and that if Robin Van Perise were to leave, it would not be for the Ligue 1.

According to the manager there are quite a few teams interested in the Dutch striker, but although the French rich club PSG were linked with Robin, a move won’t occur because the links were nothing but rumours and nothing was true about them.

“Robin van Persie is not our target but I think there are a number of other clubs who are interested in him.”

Arsene Wenger has been doing everything in his powers to keep the Dutch striker at the club, but despite his efforts it seems that Robin has made up  his mind and that he will be leaving the Gunners this season, after he stated that he has refused the contract extension.

Arsene Wenge managed to bring Giroud and Podolski, so you would naturally say that it wouldn’t be hard for him to replace Robin even though there’s a big skill gap between the Dutchman.

Arsenal intend to hold Van Persie for last year of contract

Arsenal’s officials have completely snubbed the possibility of Robin Van Persie to leave, saying that no officials offers have come in for the Dutchman yet, and that the club aren’t interested in the possibility to cash in for Robin’s services.

Team captain Robin Van Persie has been delaying his contract extension, and many seem to think that he’s looking to force Wenger in buying as many top players as possible during this summer’s transfer window.

Club chairman Peter Hill-Wood has stated:

“As far as I am aware nobody has made any offer for him and he is away so we are not in any dialogue at all,” said Hill-Wood.

“We’re not in the remotest bit interested in selling him.”

Now that Robin has declared that he won’t be signing an extension, Wenger is ready to lose Van Persie for a free next season rather than cashing in for his services now.

Do Arsenal fans think he should be forced to stay? Or sold for as much cash as possible now?

Walcott On His Way Out?

Even though the press is focusing all of its attention on Arsenal’s Robin Van Persie, the Dutchman is not the only top rated star who has refused to extend his contract, as Theo Walcott has also entered the last year of his contract with the Gunners.

The indecision hasn’t gone unnoticed as a host of clubs amongst which Chelsea, PSG and Juventus are believed to be hot on the winger’s trail, and if rumours are to be believed a transfer fee of £15million would  be enough to convince Arsenal’s officials to let Walcott go if the winger won’t agree to extend his contract with the club.

Everybody expected both Robin Van Persie and Walcott to sign new contracts as soon as they return from their Euro campaign, but the two stars have gone straight to holiday leaving the more important business for later in the summer.

Both Robin and Walcott are seemingly on their way out and their decisions are probably related to each other. If Robin will stay the speedy winger will surely take his example and continue with the Gunners, but in case the Dutchman leaves Wenger will surely be back to square one after the excellent transfers he’s made so far this summer. What do you think will happen?

RVP Keeps His Eyes On The Prize Despite Tempting Offers

Despite recent rumours Arsenal’s skipper Robin Van Persie is as devoted as ever to bring the Gunners back on a top four spot in the Premiership.

The Dutchman is highly linked with a transfer away from the Emirates Stadium in the summer, but the striker who is still running out of contract with Arsenal doesn’t seem to look into that.

“What better way to set things straight again than to beat Spurs?” the Dutchman said.

“I would rather be playing them now than on any other day, and we know that a win is absolutely vital.

“I don’t think anybody would deny that Spurs have a really good side – and they’ve added consistency this season.

“They are winning the tougher games and, as a result, have made that next step towards the top teams.

“Spurs have invested a lot of money over the past few years, and when you look at the figures it’s reflected in their league position.”

Arsene Wenger’s biggest problem at the moment should be keeping the star striker at the club and that can only happen if the Gunners will be brought to new heights starting next season. This was the worst season yet since Wenger came at the club and things can’t remain this way but can’t change either without new top players brought to the club.

Is Fabregas Trying To Convince Robin To Choose Barca?

Arsenal’s former captain Cesk Fabregas declared that he’s not trying to tempt his former colleague and actual Gunner skipper Robin Van Persie to join Barcelona, but hinted that everything worked out excellent for him and that he’s happy with the move he made.

“I talk to him but not about Barca,” Fabregas told El Mundo Deportivo.

“He is an Arsenal player and he knows what is best for him. I only wish the best of luck for him before he makes whatever decision he will make.”

“Everything that I did to come here and all the help that I received from Barca, from the coach, the president and my team-mates has been worth the effort,” added Fabregas.

We can’t blame Fabregas for leaving for Barcelona the way he did after a lengthy period when the Gunners weren’t winning anything, but we do have to admit that he was a bit malicious when he said that everything worked out smoothly for him after leaving Arsenal. We can all understand that he’s happy in Barcelona but it’s completely unethical to tempt Robin out of the club.

Regardless of Fabregas’ actions one thing is for sure. Wenger must do something quick to win at least one trophy and create a competitive team if he doesn’t want to lose all of his quality players.
