dayokanu:

Well There is little one can do about your situation

Everyone who read my statement understood what I meant that RvP when he was in doldrums was young and younger players have the better chance of recovery from bad form than older players

I cant help you with analytical reasoning at your age

so rvp was young at 26? the same age torres was at the world cup when you slated him?
if van persie could bounce from his doldrums at 26, why hasn't torres recovered from his since his form started suffering at 26?

mr dayokanu - you don't make sense!
your stupidity in megawatts would certainly solve the electricity problems in all the 3rd world nations.

Coogar yarning dust as per usual. RvP didn't score a dozen league goals till he was 27 is stewpid talk cos A. He hardly played as a striker until 2009-2010. B. He was always injured, never even played a full season.

Only soccer illiterates think RvP started playing well last year or "when he turned 28". You won't find ANY season where RvP hasn't been brilliant for Arsenal despite his fitness issues, and he's been at the club for like 8 years. It's a shame he had to start breaking goal-scoring records(simply because he's fit/playing higher up the pitch) for ignoramuses like Coogar and Dayokanu to rate him. In fact you can't even compare the quality of goals he's scoring now to the ones he was scoring 5-8 years ago when it seemed every other goal he scored was a wonder-goal. If anything, he's actually dumbed-down his game to adapt to his "new" role.

Finally, even when Torres was in his prime, the only ability he had over RvP was finishing, and RvP has since proven to be an exceptional finisher as well. That said, there's not a single skill in football RvP doesn't execute better than Torres. Rant over.

so what did he play as? defender or goalkeeper?
if he was on the flanks, messi and ronaldo scored obscene amount of goals from the flank. it's simply no excuse for a striker of his quality to not have scored more than a dozen goals till age 27.

you're a goat.
when has van persie played deeper for arsenal? the only difference is in the previous seasons, the team was built around cesc fabregas.
last season and this season, arsenal revamped their strategy and built the team around robin. everyone in the team looks for him in the final third and he gets into the box to finish off from crosses and smart inter-plays.


Finally, even when Torres was in his prime, the only ability he had over RvP was finishing, and RvP has since proven to be an exceptional finisher as well. That said, there's not a single skill in football RvP doesn't execute better than Torres. Rant over.

finishing was the only ability torres had over van persie in torres' prime?
you should be locked up with ibori.

torres had raw pace, acceleration, aerial prowess, positioning and finishing.
you might have to look for his clips again on youtube to see the kind of goals torres was scoring.
he's miles better than van persie in virtually everything apart from ball controlling techniques.

Messi, Ronaldo(the two most exceptional players of their generation), and who else? Were Messi and Ronaldo injured for 4-6 months every season?

Before Adebayor left(pre 09/10), RvP ALWAYS played in the hole/on the flanks.

Nonsense analysis. Cesc was at the club last season when RvP was averaging a goal a game.

Which dirty pace/acceleration? RvP is what they call "deceptively quick", don't be fooled by his somewhat lanky appearance. I remember looking at the stats from the 2006 WC and Euro 2008, RvP was in the top-five players in terms of the highest speeds clocked.

EDIT: He was actually in the top two from Euro 2008: A fact. Robin van Persie is the second-fastest player at Euro 2008, reaching a top speed of 31.53km/h in the group stages.

Can't seem to find the World Cup link.

Aerial prowess: the few times Arsenal have managed to get decent aerial delivery he's proved he's more than capable of scoring with his head. Torres isn't exactly prolific here either. Off the top of my head I'm pretty sure he wins more aerial duels than Torres.

Positioning: Don't make me laugh. When i mentioned RvP dumbing-down his game it was partly because of the obscene amount of tap-ins he's been scoring by getting himself into "right place at the right time" situations,  If he were a Hernandez-type player you woulda been creaming yourself over his "unbelievable movement", maybe you don't notice cos he doesn't strike you as the sort of player.

I've already discussed finishing, and some of what you've listed aren't even "skills" per se. When you look at the core skills of football like passing, technique, crossing, first-touch, dead-balls, ball-control, dribbling, etc, RvP murks Torres in every single department, and i seriously doubt he learned all those skills after his 28th birthday.

he was injured then too?

ohh please. . .spare me these excuses.


Nonsense analysis. Cesc was at the club last season when RvP was averaging a goal a game.

cesc was perma-crocked last season, hombre.
arsenal had adjusted to playing without cesc since last season. . . .robin van persie started leading the line in a 4-2-3-1/4-3-3 formation.
add obscene number of penalties/freekicks to it and his goal haul is a no brainer.

@ liverpool, torres was breezing past defenders like they weren't even there.

don't confuse bendtner with van persie.
van persie has only scored 3 league goals with his head in his entire career in england spanning 8 seasons.
torres has scored 9 league goals with his head in england. van persie had been in england for 4 seasons before torres joined him.
my friend, it's a no brainer.

he leads the line. this sorta stuff is expected.
the creativity has to be abandoned to his wingers(walcott/arshavin/gervinho) and he must get in the box to finish off the low/high crosses.
united fans also complained about ronaldo's play in his final moments @ man utd. he became a goal-getter and abandoned his overall play.

now that is the difference between torres who plays with greedy wingers and van persie who plays with intelligent team-mates.
torres in van persie's shoes would have scored plenty of goals cos walcott n gervinho would find him with good passes.
a striker is as potent as his supporting cast!

Van Persie was a winger at Feyenoord and most of his time there was as a teenager. He still managed 22 goals in two seasons despite his beef with Van Marwijk and limited game-time. Tell me how many goals other teenage wingers are scoring.

ohh please. . .spare me these excuses.

How many goals does Iker Casillas score? Please don't give any lame excuses like him being a goalie and all!

cesc was perma-crocked last season, hombre.

OK, so Arsenal built the team around RVP even when Cesc was fit? What sort of rubbish postulation is this? I'm sure in the games Cesc played his goal-ratio must have been even better considering the superior service tongue

add obscene number of penalties/freekicks to it and his goal haul is a no brainer.

Off the top of my head he scored two penalties(away to West Ham/home to Liverpool) and one free-kick(away to Birmingham). I don't know how you arrive at these asinine conclusions.

torres is faster.

Hehehe, Walcott must have morphed into Garrincha with all these "good passes", "creativity", and "intelligence"(i thought he had no football-brain), lolol. Is Mata(who you claim is better than Silva, the most creative player in the league) selling kolanut?

you need to see torres' first 50 goals for liverpool clip.

At this rate(5 goals per year) Torres would need to spend a decade at Chelsea before another 50-goal clip is made! grin grin grin grin grin grin grin

stop lying, he was a striker at feynoord. . . . .he sometimes played behind a striker in his short stint there but he was mostly operating from a central position.
who dash van persie the wing role at feynoord? and the beef with the manager was overrated. van persie himself has recently admitted he was a flop at feynoord cos he couldn't the best out of himself there?

cesc was hardly fit last season. i could count the number of games cesc came in as a substitute and was later substituted.
by last season with cesc often missing from the line up, arsenal learnt to play without cesc.

torres has scored 9 times with his head in the league, van persie has scored just 3 goals with his head and you're comparing their aerial prowess?

berbatov is better player than van persie. . . .

van persie has already played more minutes this season than berbatov did throughout the whole of last season.
if you add the number of penalties/freekicks the dutchman has scored to his stats, it's a no brainer why his statistics look good.
give the 2 of them the same minutes on the pitch and the bulgarian would score more.

plenty of big deal. walcott/gervinho have helped van persie score more than 20 league goals already.
who is benefitting from mata/sturridge crosses? the highest goal scorer in chelsea is lampard.
don't they have strikers anymore? the fact that sturridge scores more goals than he assists is a pointer that walcott/gervinho know what they are doing.
the wingers at chelsea do not know what they are meant to do.

Rubbish. The thread was created in April 2006, no way Torres was better than RvP in 2006.

----------------------------------------

Anyways, I'm glad nuccahs who think RvP started playing well yesterday are finally outing themselves as soccer illiterates. FYIz, RvP's worst performance in an Arsenal shirt is circa 7.5/10, and that was his debut season(04/05) @ 20-21. The only problems he had were his temperament(first season in particular) and not having enough time to prove himself because of injuries. It's not a coincidence he received universal acclaim the very first time he's managed to stay fit for a year.

Hehehehe, this is the dumbest shit I've ever read.

04/05: Used sparingly, still showed many flashes of brilliance when called upon. Injury ended his season prematurely. 7.5/10


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_cuzVurmfQ


05/06: Saw more game-time and duly delivered with more consistency. 8/10 easy.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54apdicCkZ4


06/07: More injury woes, still managed to finish as Arsenal's top-scorer despite playing a lot on the left wing. Your brain must be in cyclic redundancy to be listing 06/07 as an "utter w@nk" season for RvP when i vividly recall this same mugu called Coogar aka Jackal naming RvP in his team of the season that year. Also scored the most ridiculous volley in Premier League history. 8.5/10


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWzYjybKkhk


08/09: Arsenal's player of the season. Dazzled week in week out with some of the most brilliant in-the-hole displays English football will ever see. You must be absolutely mad for suggesting he was anything short of spectacular that season. 9/10

what a cobweb you have in your cranial cavity. rodallega is wigan's best striker now means he's being good? my comparison is against the whole league, you are clutching at him being the best striker at arsenal. . . .how many decent strikers have arsenal got that van persie won't be the best there?

compare van persie to the strikers in the league back then not what he was doing at arsenal.

04/05. . . .henry, andy johnson, yakubu, rooney, defoe were all better.
05/06. . . .henry, ruud, bent, keane, rooney were better.

06/07. . . . drogba, rooney, berbatov, bent, mccarthy and even mido stole the shine.
08/09. . . . .anelka, torres, rooney, robinho and bent still outclassed van persie.

van persie has never made epl's team of the season ever before.
it's one thing to be brilliant in arsenal(they are full of shyte anyways) but it's another thing to be dominant in the league.

of van persie's 8 seasons in england, this season has been his best . . . . .apart from his obvious number one position on the scorer's charts, he has been able to do it in hostile away grounds. something he never did in seasons past.

this season alone. . . .

scored at old trafford(his debut goal there after 8 seasons)
scored a hatrick at stamford bridge.

scored at white hart lane
scored at anfield.

he has also managed to score against some of these big teams at home in the emirates.
that's the mark of a striker who is ruling the roost not the nonsense youtube links you are showing me.

if i grab agbonlahor's videos on youtube n paste them here, you would pee in your pants.
they only capture the brilliant things a striker does. . . .never the crappy stuffs.

for you to come here and say van persie was 8.5/10 in 2006/7 makes u look like a complete dunderhead.
what should we then call ronaldo that season? 14/10? grin grin grin grin grin grin

08/09: Arsenal's player of the season. Dazzled week in week out with some of the most brilliant in-the-hole displays English football will ever see. You must be absolutely mad for suggesting he was anything short of spectacular that season. 9/10

Naaa, He only needs to be dangled upside down for about a week, the increased blood supply to his brain should reenergize some of his atrophied synapses from their comatose state.  grin

this epileptic beast of burden has found his voice again - oh yes, arsenal have won 2 games in a row and preejacs flow ceaselessly.
mumu told us united would decline and arsenal's policy is the new order - 27 games down the line and arsenal sit 15 points below united yet again.
the debt is meant to have crumbled fergie's empire as they cannot sustain paying the players.
if you are not the most idiotic man on planet earth, then guinness book record should be sued.
