Of Course Robin van Persie Is Going To Be 'Coy'

I wouldn't read too much into Robin van Persie being 'coy' about his contract situation at Arsenal.

He is bound to be after all isn't he?

Robin's next contract, wherever that may be, is going to be the most important one he will sign in his life. Well, except for his next mobile phone contract I suppose.

It will be his last 'big' deal and of course he has to weigh up his options. And his free minutes.

If it's any consolation, and I doubt it will be, at least he won't weigh up his Golden Boot to get the best deal on eBay like Samir Nasri would.

I'm quite calm about the whole thing actually. Obviously I want him to sign a new deal at Arsenal, but I also want to marry Kelly Brook, and I realise I'm not going to get everything I want in life am I?

In my very honest opinion, I honestly think that he will stay with us and sign for life.

Now I know that counts for nothing. I have no inside information on him. Its only my gut feeling. Although that feeling could be the dodgy sausage roll I had for lunch earlier.

Regardless of how that feeling in my stomach came about I still believe in it.

Of course some players out there earn a lot more than Robin does. And the worst thing is the Dutchman has more talent in one of his little toes than most of them.

This would turn anyone's head. And I'm sure he could earn nearly double somewhere else.

But, for me, it's not all about money for RvP.

Obviously whatever deal comes his way means he won't go starving. He could probably afford to have caviar at least twice a week. Sharks caviar too.

But there are some thing's money can't buy and more importantly he wants to see his wife and kids happy.

And going by what his missus has said recently she is more than happy with him staying at Arsenal.

I know he wants to win things. And he can. At Arsenal. This season hasn't been the greatest but a bad one has still seen us finish above Chelsea, S*urs and Liverpool.

And I thought we were in a relegation battle.

Robin wants to see Arsenal compete. He is a Gooner and when he wears that Arsenal shirt his chest swells to twice the size of Pamela Anderson's.

He wants trophies, for Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger and the club need to show we will compete next season. The early signing of Lukas Podolski suggests to me a change of transfer tactics and I expect some decent players to arrive.

I've said it before, and been wrong, but I think the penny has finally dropped at Arsenal. We need to start showing how big a club we are and show our intent in the transfer market to do that.

Try to ignore all the 'crunch' contract talks in the coming week or you will end up going barking mad.

What will be, will be. Regardless of what happens Arsenal will still be standing. Unless several raving lunatic Gooners pull it down.

As I've said, I think Robin will stay. I might be wrong but its very rare that I am. I have a 20% success ratio.

Don't get sucked into what the media say. The most important thing is the club and Robin are sitting down, having a cup of coffee with a bit of cake, to discuss the contract.

In the mean time bombard him with tweets, messages and use emotional blackmail to the best of your ability.

Very well written Wrighty7 Mate.
Indeed it would be Lovely to keep Robin and challenge fiercely and win trophies starting next season. I found your blog rather fun and relaxing. We wait and see if VP puts pen to paper out of loyalty and love and just enjoy being a gunner in the mean time. We by far the greatest team the world has ever seen... Arsenal :)

I love your articles. The most sensible articles are from you, Kevin Whitcher and Le-grove's Pedro. We all need to realize that he is not a cristiano or a balotelli. Football aside he is just another sensible, loving family guy like the rest of us. He loves his family and any decision of his wouldn't be without their consent.
Also he is a gooner. Not some mercenary type.
Thanx for the article mate.
Keep it goonerish

If Arsene doesn't invest this summer he needs to go. he never seems to learn..... i think he's lost the plot.
also all these Gunners who are happy with 3rd!!! Damn you all. 3rd place is nothing to be happy about unless your a born loser.

Good one! No doubt he wants to stay but it will all come down to the if's and but's... He looks like a person who thrives one being appreciated ( who doesn't) and I am sure he knows the grass isn't greener at the other side but still he does want to actually WIN something else than personal trophy's ( he bought that t-shirt this year) So let's hope for some perfect coffee at the meeting wednesday. If he stays, he stays forever, like in legend, statue, Wenger's successor... Let's hope so because I think Arsenal can do with men like RVP, who just love the game...

I'll write an article about Wenger soon so lets comment on him there.

This is one of the best information i have come across concerning out talisman....RVP is gonna stay if only Wenger will promise him some decent players this summer, Arsenal we are great and we need to show the World how great we are. take a look at 1999-2006, we dominated and kept the form....we can still do it again, all we need to do is to stay united and work towards our aim as a great club........Keep it goonerish.

Robin will stay , 3Rd place is good out of 20 teams , we were supposed to be behind Chelsea Liverpool and spurs yet we,aren't :-) . Yes Wenger was poor in the summer , but when nasty promises you he is staying , even played for,us this season and promises gervinho he is staying ,and then up and leaves that was hard. Remember we are rebuilding teams do it from time to time. we need Baines , kagawa, new backup goalie and most importantly a new medical staff and a true enforcer .

Let's hope we can keep RVP, but if he doesn't sign we should at least keep him for his final contracted year. After that, it's up to him.

Naveed said...

Hi Wrighty, always read your article. Most of times you make sense, but this time i am afraid you dont in few of points you have mentioned. Regardless of RVP signs or not, i have serious obervations about few other points.
1. RVP can win trophies at Arsenal, i really doubt this. I can bet my house on the fact that if i go through previous posts of all the arsenal writers like yourself which you wrote at end of season since 2006, i am 101% sure we will see the same stuff written over and over again. At end of every season we talk about same thing, next season will be different. It has never been the case.
2. Penny has finally dropped, well do u really think so and more importantly believe so ? How many times we have said the same. Have you noticed any difference ? Our defence still looks like headless chickens running around, our game plan still the same no mater who our opposition is or whatever is the situation of the game.
3. Give me one good reason why RVP should sign (I would love him to sign btw). Dont go on assumptions that he will win stuff with Arsenal, there is no indication what so ever from our performance this season or from our manager that next season will be different.
4. You said we have done well to finish above chelsea, spurs and liverpool. Chelsea has won the FA cup and are playing in champions league final. As for other two, when was the last time we finished below them to be happy about finishing above them this year. We are not a club who should be looking down and being happy that we finished above xyz. We are a club who should be looking up and thinking how the hell we finished 19 points behind top two. We are not spurs who should be looking down and feeling happy.
4. With the start we had we should be happy where we finished i hear you say. Whose fault was it to have a bad season i ask you ? Let me guess, was it Arsene ? I guess so. So, if its Arsene's fault we had bad start why would we be happy on recovering from our start ?
Bottom line is mate, since our last FA cup win we have become also ran's. I absolutely hate it when Fergie has nice words to say about us. You know why ? Because Fergie only says nice things about a club who he thinks are not good enough to compete against Untd. it is same us and same him, when we were wining league he hated us, now he loves us. I dont want his love, i want his hatered. It wont happen unfortunately any time soon. Every year since 2004-2005 season other then one season where we really went for the title till last few games we are out of title race by jan-feb. Apart from one Champions League final, one carling cup final and one FA cup final, we had absolutely nothing to ve excited about months before season ends. Sorry, but i am not ready to feel proud and happy about finishing above any crap when we are 19 points from top.
All said, i am not of the opinion to sack manager, i just want him to understand and realise what our negatives are and try to get them sorted. unfortunately that doesnt seems to be the case. We will have no clue how to defend, our central defender is trying to score a goal when we are 3-2 up with 5 minutes to go which i found ridiculous. Finally, i dont believe in all the happy thoughts and assumptions, i want to see the change on the pitch, and i have to admit i really dont have much hope at this very time.

I dont see how the early signing of podolski is all of a sudden a statement of intent. we always get an early signing or two. last season because we knew that eboue nasri and emmanuel-thomas were leaving we signed jenkinson gervinho and oxlade-chamberlain. Now its podolski and i am certain that he.is our rvp onsurance. likewise i think mvila could be our song insurance and hoilett our walcott insurance. If we had picked up a trophy this season i dont think people would have bren too unhappy with those as replacements. however seeing as we have won f all for 7 seasons we are all hoping that they are additions not replacements. i am not so sure.

He's gone .. An agreement is already in place with .... Chance to win trophies and earn lots more money. Your a selling club face facts.

I think RVB will stay with us unless the club needs more money (scrooge administration) because he is a kind of player who thinks using his heart like king Henry. If Robin decides to leave, we will respect him as a one of the best player I have seen in the club. Thank you Wrighty

Naveed,

You make some very good points mate.

Good article, very easy reading. I think rvp will sign for arsenal, they'll def give him a good enough deal to keep him here and I guess podolski was bought to support rvp not replace him. I think Ramsey has been the biggest disappointment for me this season, he jus hasn't stepped up enough, so we def need atleast one attacking midfielder and a left back to cover for Gibbs, cuz Santos is better as a winger. Also i don think wenger will sign ne1 until he can get rid of the deadwood first n im soo sure he's gonna say Wilshire is like a new signing and therefore not but ne1 in midfield...

Utter tosh, why is he holding the club to ransom, he either stays or he goes end of? if he goes get 30 million plus and invest in two players, he has had an exceptional season, but will he be able to do it again, will he stay injury free?

Dann said...

3rd is the absolute best we could get. We won't topple both Manchester clubs with the financial power they have. Football nowadays is about money. Madrid were second fiddle to barca. They spent 80 million on ronaldo and are now la liga champions. I would rather be in our position than either Liverpool or Chelsea. Let's face it.... They won't beat bayern and will be playing on ch 5 next season

Naveed, so spot on mate. I was getting scoffed and laughed out of the Herbert chapman for the last 2 seasons for saying that, now you'llstruggle to find a Gooner who doesn't see things that way. I think this is our make or break summer of a decade. If I hear AW condemn defending one more time, it's preposterous. If I was a bus driver and kept crashing, ffs

Your written english is very good for someone still at nursery. Tosser.

Every season it's, " Vieira's leaving Arsenal in crisis" or Henry's leaving, Arsenal in crisis" or "Fabregas leaving etc, etc."

Why don't people get a grip. Glory hunters fuck off, real supporters get behind the team. We have gained more points for pounds spent than any team in history and have virtually paid for one of the best stadiums in the world.

I cannot believe how damned stupid some people can be.
