Player to Watch:
Robin van Persie - Arsenal looked a completely different animal when van Persie came on for the last ten minutes of the game at White Hart Lane. I think he's one of the most under-rated players in the Premier League, he's got it all. He can score wonder-goals, he takes brilliant free-kicks, he can dribble with both feet and he's got bags of pace. Thank god the likes of Arshavin and Fabregas won't be lining up alongside him.

Winton isn't a true footy fan.....he's only in it for the agg. Roger Daltrey, Ray Davies of The Kinks and John Lydon are all more respectable examples of well known (refuse to use the C word) gooners.
