In my opinion Robin van Persie is now 'Mr Arsenal' at the club.
In recent years I have been really impressed with how he conducts himself on and off the pitch.
He says all the right things and I don't think you could ever doubt his commitment to Arsenal.
I hope that he gets a bit of luck and stays fit this season. If he does (and this might sound outrageous to some) then Arsenal have a great chance of winning the league.
Van Persie has become a very important member of this Arsenal squad. Now one of the senior players, he had to become a leader. And I think he has.
He'll be the next captain of Arsenal and Thomas Vermaelen will be his understudy.
I know its only a shirt number but now he has the number 10 on his back I believe he will get even better. He feels privileged to wear it and will want to live up to Dennis Bergkamp.
What a challenge!
At the end of the season I reckon he will be named the Premiership player of the year. I think we are in for quite a treat regarding the Dutch Man this campaign.
Keep it Goonerish............
