Van Persie Was Wrong – He’s Not A Good Person

It seems that Robin van Persie must have some vendetta against his Dutch colleague Tim Krul.

Ramsey  tries to calm down van Parsie

From the start of the game the Arsenal captain was trying to interfere with Tim’s drop kicks, and that’s something you very rarely see these days.

And that coupled with him saying things to Tim throuhgout the game didn’t help at all, and then of course the whole thing erupted after Arsenal got their 95th minute winner, and it certainly seems to have been because of van Perise’s aggression.

It’s even worse than that because it seems it was because of van Persie’s dislike of the Newcastle goalkeeper, who was our Man of the Match.

Arsene Wenger suggested after the game that it could have been something from being part of the Dutch squad, but you hardly expect this kind of thing from International team mates – they are usually friendly towards each other.

Van Persie was the only one who was giving Tim problems, and the other Arsenal players tried to restrain their captain at the end of the game and in the tunnel.

The general conclusion is that it was the Arsenal captain who was the clear instigator, and we’re just pleased Tim didn’t react to all the provocation.

It’s hard to take a last minute winner in normal circumstances and even worse when you are being goaded by another player – we are still getting over the pain of losing the game that way.

Jonas Gutierrez has no doubt that it was Robin van Persie’s fault and that he must not be a good person:

“Van Persie was wrong. There was no need for him to do that – Arsenal won the game, it was finished. I can’t understand a person like that. It is not right. When you feel like that it’s because you are not a good person.”

“I don’t care about the football, I’m talking about Robin van Persie the person. When you have people who do that, it’s not right.”

“We are all used to getting kicks, it’s a sport of contact. But when you have things like that, it is not right – it is not easy to accept.”

“He was the only Arsenal player who reacted like that. The others were saying to him ‘calm down, calm down’.”

“When you do that the fans go crazy as well, so it’s no good for the atmosphere of the sport. It didn’t help the game – both sets of fans are having a good evening, they’re enjoying the game. He made a big mistake.”

“There didn’t seem to be any reason for van Persie to do that,” “Well done to Tim for staying calm. In a second you can lose your mind but we have to stay focused.”

“I was pleased with Tim, you have to think of the next game and the rest of the season at that moment. It is no good to have a reaction and get a three game ban or something like that. Tim went to react but then he calmed down, which was very good.”

We have no idea what the history of these two players is, but van Persie lacked class on Monday night, but I suppose players these days don’t apologize after the event.

We remember John Wayne saying in the film She Wore  Yellow Ribbon – apologising is a sign of weakness. 😀

So that must be true and therefore Robin couldn’t  apologize – could he?

It would certainly help the situation and clam things down a bit between the two players.

    Squabbles like this should be settled in a boxing ring, immediately after the match – loser gets a 3 game ban. I’m only saying that, because I know Tim would beat the ponce into a pulp 😀

    Think the game needs a radical wage cap of about 15k pw, bring these arseholes down a peg or 2, it’s like a competition to see who’s the biggest tosser these days – made to feel invincible and untouchable by their wealth.

    Not sure it has to do with salaries. I’ve seen this type of thing in games I’ve played and at all kinds of levels. Let’s not forget that footballers are generally uneducated and who knows where they’d be without their talent. Appreciate what they do (and in the case of VP and Krul it’s admirable), not their character.

    van persie was obviously trying to imtimidate krul and put him off his game, clearly failed as i barely saw a mistake from krul all night…

    Salaries should come to the fore, players like Tevez is just takin the piss with it.
    All players should have a bottomline to work with, then possibly increase their wages through incentive based pay.

    That would motivate a few more.

    Pardew’s fist pump, I couldn’t agree more. Player wages and transfer fees are on a rapid increase of exponential growth. They’ll be out of control in 2 or 3 years if they’re not limited.

    Only this morning, Roberto Carlos has said that he’d like to see both Messi and Ronaldo and Anzhi Macachkala. Can you imagine the sort of wages and transfer fee it would take to accomplish that? I’d say you’re looking at easy £350 – £400mil and knocking on for £1mil per week each in wages. It clearly is very unlikely that it would happen, but it indicates that clubs think they have the money to do it, so it won’t be long before it gets that way.

    My missus is Dutch and has told me that no one in Holland respects Van Persie as a person because a couple of years ago he beat up his missus, says it all really doesnt it.

    Yeah. Very unprofessional. It’s common for the keeper or other players to ‘waste’ time when you are against the bigger teams.

    Don’t tell me Arsenal doesn’t ‘waste’ time in their games. Would Van Persie tell his teammates off?

    It doesn’t matter how good you are when your personality sucks big time!
