His decision comes to no surprise as he has postponed to decide on this issue again and again until now.
Of course we will be sad to miss him, but every player looks forward for more glory and general wealth I should say just like how everyone looks for a better life. Perhaps his love for Arsenal is not a bondage good enough for his wealth desire. Although my heart hoped that he renews the contract, but my common sense suggested otherwise. Turns out that real common sense always beats emotional prediction huh??
What we should focus now is how we are gonna rebuild the club. So far we have done well by getting Lucas Podolski and Oliver Giroud, but what I am worried about is our defence which is our Archilies heel . Not a decent good signings was made to reinforce our frail defence so far aside from Vermalaen and Sagna. Our attacking force has been always consistent so far and has scored more than seventy goals every season. However, we conceded an average of forty goals for the last few seasons which worked out as an average of more than one goal in every game (I’m referring to BPL table). We conceded the most goals last season compared to the other teams in top four. Until now we have yet to do something about it and we have been conceding goals in critical times when we should have not. As a team who fights for the title, a strong back four is a must. We should seriously consider reinforcing our defence department. Last season we have seen how City’s strong wall helped them to gain an edge over their rival neighbours United to clinch the title. Had they conceded nine more goals last season, Sir Alex would have the last laugh.
Back to van Persie, I hope he is not going to City just like Nasri does although again my logic sense thinks otherwise. Just like many Gooners do, I really wish that he leaves England and play somewhere else. I thank him for his service for the club. That is all I have got to say.
