‘Robin Van Persie!’ is the name being shouted out on every street from South B of Nairobi to London, from the north to the west, where no doubt Chelsea are preparing a tactical plan to stop the Dutchman this Saturday.
I am not by any way surprised now, that critics have already created a slogan, this being ‘ARSENAL ARE A ONE MAN TEAM’.
Indeed this may be true, Robin is the main man at Arsenal, as a matter of fact I panic when he isn’t in the starting 11. However, I am sure other fans would panic if say Rooney, Ronaldo, Messi or Modric weren’t in the starting 11 of their respective teams, right?
I think every club has got an exceptional player in their squad, one that is their talisman and above the rest. However, a conclusion based on a given game and without the appropriate facts to back it up is in my opinion ‘nonsense’. I watched the game against Stoke and I can tell you that the entire back four were solid. Laurent Koscielny in particular was on top of his game. Gervinho was up there too, I think it was his possibly his best game for us since his arrival. He scored one and assisted both of Van Persie’s goals.
Trust me when I tell you that this team has a fantastic spirit and attitude, and they have all very good qualities about them. So the critics can talk all they want during the day because come the night they will all surely be put to bed.
