    How can he be the first gunner to reach 35 goals in a year, if Henry got 35 which you mentioned. F**king retard.

      Bin Laden, I think you are the retard here, coz its true Van Persie is the first player to hit 35 for Arsenal, coz Henry hit 34, which RVP already reached during the Aston Villa when he slotted the penalty. Go get some info on Arsenal, and be the real fan by knwing stats instead of hurling unnecessary insults. Happy New Year
