reaction to Van Persie statement. CLAP, CLAP, CLAP

Van Persie's recently released statement regarding Adebayor's antics during our 4-2 defeat to Man City has got to be applauded and should finally put an end to Ade's whining and crying, blaming the Arsenal fans for his move to City. The former Arsenal striker has without doubt today shown a big disrespect to a club that made him one of the most feared strikers in the Premier League. Van Persie told"I am sad and disappointed by my former team-mate Emmanuel Adebayor's mindless and malicious stamp on me during today's match."We are both professional footballers and I know that the game is physical, I too have made hard and sometimes miss-timed challenges but never with the intention of hurting an opponent. He set out to hurt me today."I knew he was aiming for a collision because he changed the angle of his body to allow contact to be made. He moved backwards when his natural momentum would have taken him forward. I find that deeply disrespectful. He has shown a real lack of class today, to me and the fans."I do feel lucky that I have not suffered a greater injury. The contact was only centimetres from my eye. I have not received an apology from him, there were no words exchanged afterwards. He had his own agenda today and that is bad for football. It's bad for the game we all love."I want to make it clear that this has nothing to do with the result of today's match. We do not hide from that disappointment but I need to speak out about his behaviour."The guy is an absolute savage, and it's about time someone from inside the Arsenal camp spoke out and exposed Adebayor for who and what he really is - an absolute psychopath.The fact he tried to take out Fabregas too can't go un-noticed, the look on his face and the way he stepped on his foot could've left our captain facing a broken leg and more time out on the sidelines. His stamp on Van Persie was inexcusable behaviour from someone who from minute one had the intention of taking his former club out - regardless of if it meant going through his former team mates. He got his goal and his celebration showed a serious lack of class - emotion or no emotion, I give him the fact he apologised for this but someone needs to get it through his head the fans didn't turn on him because BARCELONA AND MILAN WANTED HIM, as he keeps reciting, they turned on him because of his lacklustre performances and having the desire of a wounded turtle on the pitch, blaming his team mates for results, telling the world he's one of the top strikers in the game when he couldn't finish to save his life for his club, his comments in the media over and over again were both disrespectful to the club and the Arsenal fans when he looked for that new pay hike and new deal - so he can only blame himself and should look in the mirror when asking himself why the Arsenal fans don't "love" him anymore - PERIOD. His rage was building up for weeks and weeks so his intention to hurt can't be in question. Talking after every city game about how the fans love him there and didn't at Arsenal constantly taking digs in a flawed attempt to convince the footballing world he was targeted. Now, the question has to be asked, what's worse? A dive? Or a footballer deliberately trying to hurt an opponent, opponent's he once played with and respected as team mates, a club he claims he once loved. I would love the FA to take all these points into consideration, watch the whole game over and see exactly how this mad man's intent to harm his former team mates cannot, CANNOT be turned a blind eye to.........But that's just not going to happen. Madebayor will most probably get away with everything he did today without a bad word said about him. I can't stress enough how much Van Persie has to be applauded for coming out and having the balls to comment on his former strike partner. You just know he's speaking on behalf of the club too, you just know most of the Arsenal squad didn't like Ade, and after today everyone who used to defend this psycho should see why. At least Kolo was man enough to show some respect to the club that made his name, not piss on it like his team mate did. Rvp has shown captain characteristics by speaking out. Well done mate. I'm not one to rant so I apologise - but it was necessary today. One last word on our former striker - Arsenal is a football club of class, throughout the entire establishment. I have never seen in the 20 odd years of supporting this club, A player that lacks as much class as that guy. Could you ever imagine Henry acting like that?????? Wrighty???????Merse?????????Tony Adams??????????Pat Vieira????????????Bobby P????????? Ray Parlour????????? Martin Keown???????? No, No, No, No, No, No, No, and No! Imagine what they'd make of Adebayor's blatant disrespect to the club they truly do love. Even Nicolas Anelka had the decency n showed real class by shunning the idea of celebrating when he scored that stunner against us last season, and no matter how many times he gets booed he always says he will forever owe the club and the fans for putting his career on the map. That's the difference.
