Fantastic Robin Van Persie Seals Victory : The Player Ratings
Posted by Escobar
Bottom of the table is where we would be this season without Robin Van Persie, a captain’s performance and man of the match game saw him seal all three points after putting us in the lead with just 28seconds on the clock before Seb Larsson equalised with a well taken freekick. But anything the former gooner can do, the current idol can match if not better. Below are the player ratings.
Second best player on the pitch today, knew nothing and could do nothing to stop the goal. But was alert and strong enough to be in the right position to prevent us from falling further behind.
Making his home debut, the young man put in a good shift and wasn’t all that troubled. Needs to improve his offensive output.
For someone so slow, he ventures forward too much for my liking. Did not have much to do as Sunderland had no striker on the pitch.
Koscielny – 6.5
Like his partner had little or nothing to do, covered well whenever Gibbs went missing.
Gibbs – 5
Playing a full 90minutes or back to back games is fast becoming a taboo for the young Englishman. Withdrawn at half time after pulling up injured.
Arteta – 5
Another poor game from the spaniard. For someone so experienced in the EPL he sure doesn’t play like one. Needs to up his game. And quick
Song – 5
Just maybe his best position is at CB, wasn’t impressive at all today. Coquelin should have started.
Rosicky – 6
The only one of the midfield trio to play well. He needs to be more authoritative with his play and shoot more often.
Walcott – minus 10
Oh my was he poor today. I’m running out of excuses to give for his on-and-off performances. Surely Oxlade can do better than this as he’s on form. God knows why he wasn’t even in the squad.
Gervinho – 6.5
High rating because of the assist. He can do better but doesn’t show it. He went for power over placement when faced with the goal alone. Needs to improve as well.
Van Persie – 100
God bless RVP. Captain Marvelous. They say no such thing as a one man army but he defeated that today with a wonderful performance. He deserves better than he’s getting.
Arsene Wenger – Idiot Of The Match
Poor selection before and during the game, poor tactics since 06/07. Walcott should have been withdrawn yet he lasted 90 minutes. Park continues to decorate the bench. He continues to baffle me.
Arshavin – 5
Ran at the defence with real purpose when he came on. Should have grabbed a goal.
Santos – 5
Decent cameo from the brazilian.
Stan Kroenke, break the bank and do whatever you must to keep RVP at the club, I hope you watched today’s game. God bless RVP and Arsenal.
