      I don’t rate Van Persie. He has been lucky this season. Not a top class player.

    RVP should be voted, he is player in arsenal squad. If he had been with, sky could have been his limit.

      I am sorry mate but Van Persie gets the number of goals he does because no one else in the Arsenal side is capable of scoring goals regularly.

      Shouldn’t there be a special category for best diver? At least it would ensure that Ashley Young wins something this season.

      Dude, really, nobody cares what you think. Going by your earlier posts, you are obviously a Manchester United fan with a morbid sense of humour. If you can’t respect players from your rival teams, the least you can do is avoid posting shit on a public forum. You’ll only end up making an ass of yourself.

      As for your jibe against Robin van Persie, I think you might want to take off your ManU-tinted glasses, and look around. He’s been the most consistent player in the league this season. The statistics speak for themselves.
