Van Persie bigs up Song and Szczesny

Van Persie bigs up Song and Szczesny

Despite his two goal salvo winning the points for Arsenal at Klanfield today, Robin van Persie was keen to ensure that the praise was evenly spread.

The skipper kissed the boot of Alex Song after another delicious pass led to his incredible winning goal, and in the first half Wojciech Szczesny made a brilliant double save to deny Kuyt from the penalty spot after the diving buck toothed racist won the spot kick for the home side.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, van Persie was quick to praise Song for the assist which many have compared to his ball for the goal against Everton.

“It was the same pass from the same guy, Alex, an unbelievable pass,” he said. “This one I hit with the inside of my foot, but again it was an unbelievable pass.

“Alex is a really good player, he can see it and actually do it. And I have to thank Szczesny as well.”

Arsene Wenger was also happy to praise his goalkeeper, saying, “There were two men of the match today, Wojciech Szczesny and van Persie.”

The victory means Arsenal have opened up a 10 point gap over Liverpool, and should Sp*rs lose to United tomorrow it means the gap to them is just 4 points.

“It means a lot, to score at Anfield is big because Anfield is a massive ground,” said the captain who, in case you didn’t already know, scores when he wants.

“I’m proud of that, but even more proud of this win. I don’t think we really deserved it to be honest because Liverpool played better.”

“I think we are 10 points ahead of Liverpool now and we can wait to see what Spurs do tomorrow (against Manchester United). It’s a big win, a massive win.”

      • Chesney has got so much class.Didnt make a big deal of the dive by Bugs Bunny.
        He just gets on with the game plus did you see him run up to Kos after the
        o.g. To tell him to get on with the game.
        Very mature head on young soldiers and potentially our best keeper in club
        history.

      • I also thought it was very telling (if not commented on) that he went and picked up Kos after the OG, character and leadership

      how many times has he played that ball this season? Forget everton, didn’t he play it for theo against sp*rs last weekend?

    • Watch Alex Song’s amazing dribble through Dortmund before he assists RvP’s header with another of those chips that he is soooooo good at. I think we’ve had about ten assists this season from those chips.
      He is a monster and he’s a gooner. There’s only one Bacary Sagna etc.

    Strange few weeks for Arsenal. Two abysmal cup performances but the North London derby victory and todays win at Anfield makes everything quite peachy.

    Bring on Milan eh! Just maybe.

  7. True talk about Song. He has completed more succesful through balls than Silva etal from defensive midfield. Absolutely love the fact that it looks like he ‘shuffles’ through games. Whatever that means. Top player that guy

    • Not always justice is done with us, Arsene and the club should complain to the FA/UEFA/FIFA or who ever, make noise let them realise we will complain and we will highlight it the refs biased if nothing is done about it by the FA. Last year we lost 9 points because of refs decisions, this year so far we lost around 7/8 points because of that.

      Newcastle Gerv pen 2 points
      Spud Fart hand ball 1 poing
      Man City RVP goal and pen not given 3 points
      Swan dive pen 1 point (that toy boy young cunt ref was EVEN smiling when giving it)
      Spud Monkey head dive 1 goal difference
      Pool Suarez dive luckily nothhing.

      The refs finding it easy to give a decisions against us with no worries or knowing Arsene won’t treat them like school kids or question their integrity as the Manure Glorify Bully and his media British Pals would do and he would get away with it.

  12. separate issue, but does anyone have any news on Jack? When’s he coming back? If we can get him back in our midfield in the next few games, I think that we’ll have an amazing chance of clinching 4th!

    • Someone should have pulled Mata aside and told him straight out, “If you go to Chelsea, it means your owner will be fickle and second-guess everybody including himself, your manager will be a lame duck by December, and worst of all, you’ll have to ride a bus with John Terry.”

  16. SZCZ put on a display I’ve been dying for from an Arsenal keeper for years. The captain was right, we didn’t deserve to win, but dammit it’s nice to be on the other end of these type of games.

    SZCZ saves when he wants. RVP scores when he wants. Song passes how he wants.

  17. No coincidence that since we’ve got our full backs back, we look better.

    • Very slight negative.Was Yossi playing yesterday?
      Very Big Positive.Sagna wasnt really mentioned as much as he should have
      been yesterday because RVP and Chesney were so good but he has been fantastic since his return

  18. YEAH, RvP is the goal king of the world. Nobody scores on the volley like he does. Inside foot, front foot, side foot and anywhere foot. A goal is all that matters. Lession : win when we play excellent football like against the spuds and win when we are not too excellent like yesterday, 3 points is all that matter. Go gooners, Arsenal5; Milan0. Somebody say amen.

  19. Mr Eboue Armann Yes, I’m NEVER watching football with you! Heh.

    Glad we beat those racists. They’re the absolute shame of this country and if any of their fans support the way they’ve acted throughout this then so are they.
    Next up: justice for Gervinho. I’m certain he’ll score against Newcastle

    Thumb up 11 Thumb down 0

  20. I keep hearing that we were lucky to win yesterday.

    Bollocks.

    Putting the ball into the back of the net is a skill. If you dominate a game and don’t win it then you get what you deserve. Liverpool won’t finish in the top four because they just can’t score enough goals – especially at home. Simple.

    Even when we play badly we still somehow manage to score at least one goal – that’s why we are in fourth spot despite having a terrible season. And we’ve got the best goalscorer in the league while Liverpool have the most expensive English flop in football history.

    Fuck off Jamie Redknapp.

    • Sometimes luck evens itself out.
      Dalglish “we were the better team and should have won”
      Look at the score you sour faced Scottish Git.If you buy overrated Downing,
      Henderson ,Carroll and worst of all Adam (even the Lpool fans say he was
      a bad buy)Classic case of big fish,small pool.
      I despise The Uruguyan bugs bunny but what must he feel like when the
      best service he gets is a mighty hoof from Carragher
      Dalglish,you have a rubbish team that can’t score and gloat on beating
      a championship team on penalties.Enjoy your Thursday nights
      next year

      • but i feel we shouldn’t gamble on the fitness of our players now.realistically speaking we should keep our expectations very low and wait for surprises until winning becomes a routine.
        personally i would like to see park,chamakh and afobe against milan.

      • You speak truth.

        Imagine the reprobation that would befall our manager if he picked RvP hoping to overturn 0-4 and our captain was broken in a 50/50 tackle. Besides, Tuesday is the last match day of the season Arsenal can even contemplate resting van Persie.

        Challenging for the CL will take more miracles than one, even if Wenger used one of his three wishes on Tuesday night.

        We’re in 4th spot now. There’s only 7 points between 5th and 3rd. I think it’s time to consolidate the last “trophy” we have a realistic shot at. It’s too risky with our injury luck to play our best team this week.

  24. News just in this Sunday….

    Harry reiterated that third place is what matters now.

    “That’s the key,” he added. “I’ve said all along that we want Champions League football and we’re still in a great position.

    “We had a bad weekend last week, but that was a one-off. In all honesty, since the first two games of the season, even the couple of defeats we had we could quite easily have won those matches.

    “Last week was the first bad day we’ve had, but it happens. Everyone has them.”

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!
