Kammy thinks Robin van Persie could leave Arsenal and praises the dedication of Steve Morison.Back to story
the arsenal team is not a weak team with players like RVP, Gervinho, Arteta and Ramsey but their defense is poor and for that reason the wont make the top 4 spurs, man utd, Chelsea and man city are definitely better teams. I think it is clear that Robin Van Persie has been influenced by the departures at arsenal in the summer and it looks like he will follow suit and leave most likely for spain and real madrid i think barca would be a bit cautious due to his injury record and they wouldnt want to waste money on an injury prone player whereas real madrid are a more open to spending their cash and a swap deal with benzema or higuain going the other way would suit arsenal down to the ground. I would rule out man city due to the strong strike force they already have but if Fernando torres keeps up his very poor form and with the likely departure of Didier Drogba to france (PSG or Marseille) chelsea may well have to strengthen their front line. I agree that Chelsea's defense isn't as strong as previous years but that's down to the fact that previous managers played cautious football because they didn't want to expose a defense that lacks pace and overall quality, John Terry isn't as good as people say and ivanovic & alex just arent good enough and david luiz is more like a defensive midfield player that an out and out centre back.

Kammy i also disagree with you on RVP-he's fully aware that the team has been there for him when he spent seasons on the treatment table and he wont be leaving in a hurry-unless Arsenal dont want him of course. Any player of RVP's caliber knows by stalling on his contract and demanding success he can force AW and the board's arms into making game changing additions to the squad. if he simply signed now, what would motivate them to do so?

I have to agree with the Steve Morrison point. He has been truely magnificent this season, but the same can be said of the entire Norwich squad. When they came up they only had about 5 Premier League appearances between them!! I really think alot of Premier League teams are missing out on alot of top players by not looking at the lower leagues for players!

God work Robin Van Persie. We need more exciting players like him.

I see what your saying about van Persie but the fans adore him and he ain't the sort to sit on the bench for no one or for more money either. His too much like a peacock wanting to show off his feathers and who could blame him with skills his been gifted with! STAY WITH THE GUNNERS ROBIN!

I dont agree Kammy. Van persie is not money hungry like most players these days and curtainly wont be leaving arsenal yet, though he will eventualy if arsenal still don't win anything.

Arsenal are on the way back to the top four and I'm one of the supporters that never doubted it. On RVP, he is easily the best striker in Europe at the moment and is repaying Wenger's faith in him by the bucket load. I really do think that RVP will sign a new contract. Arsenal and Arsene have always stood by him through injuries and most probably his darkest time in 2005. He is now Arsenal captain and can now easily be considered an Arsenal legend.
