Van Persie Needs a Helping Hand!

Robin Van Persie has been simply sensational so far for the gunners this season and his goals and leadership has carried the club through it's most turbulent time over the last 20 years, as we can see with the victor chandler review and the stan james review.

Since the 8-2 drubbing at Old Trafford, Wengers men now sit 5th in the table and are well in the hunt for that Champions League place, but what is of real concern is the feeling that aside form the goals of RVP, where else are the goals going to come from?

The game at Manchester City on Sunday pointed this out to me more than ever before. I just couldn't see who else could get on the score sheet. I might be being over critical, but nobody looked threatening in front of goal, and we struggled to make many clear cut opportunities.

At the moment, there is a positive atmosphere around the Emirates. That's because we have turned a corner and that we have our savior fully fit and scoring goals. But things could turn ugly again if we were to lose him.

Van Persie has struggled to stay fit for an entire season since he has been at the club, and he might even have a couple of off days which is normal. I know RVP thrives on being the main man, but I hope Wenger can find a proven goalscorer in the January transfer window to ease his load.

I know Wenger likes to look for those players with plenty of potential but right now we need someone with experience of the big stage and someone who can fit straight into the team.

Other than this, we can only hope that the likes of Ramsay, Walcott and Gervinho can get on the score sheet to ease the pressure of RVP during the tough christmas period!
