van Persie Delighted With Porto Response + Hennessey Linked

Arsenal goal hero Robin van Persie was happy to help the Gunners over their Hull disaster with a two-goal salvo in the 4-0 drubbing over Porto.

The north Londoners were back to their free-flowing best as they secured a comprehensive victory in the Champions League yesterday evening.

And a delighted Van Persie said:

“We wanted to bounce back from the Hull game, that was the idea.

“Everybody was really disappointed after losing against Hull. But this was a good day.

“We knew we had to make it up to the fans and make it right.

“We played well and it was a deserved win.”

And despite the nature of Arsenal’s victory, the Dutch striker isn’t reading anything into last nights stunning result.

He continued:

“This is only our second game in the competition. There are still many more games to go. It’s too early to say what it means.”

In other news, Arsene Wenger is reportedly considering a move for Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

The Frenchman has been monitoring the 21-year-old over the past year but with the Championship leaders thought to be holding out for a fee of up to £10million, it is not known whether Wenger would be willing to pay such a hefty price for a number two keeper.

Manuel Almunia would more than likely hold on to the number one jersey, with Hennessey widely considered to be one for the future.

However, with two young stoppers in Lukasz Fabianski and Vito Mannone already waiting in the wings at the club, the Gunners boss may be tempted to pull out of the running, with Everton also thought to be keeping tabs on the youngster.

I can’t see Hennessey joining to be honest, UNLESS there’s a serious injury to Almunia (touchwood ffs).

Yep, he was terrible last night.

I’m reporting on what quite a few news sources have said, so I have other links to back me up. But like the article and Kevline say, a move seems very far from the mark.

We aint winning anything this season, we cannot be beaten against Hull and Fulham and be considered serious contenders. Even on a bad day we should have beaten Hull. A draw would have been bad enough. We jist dont have that cutting edge without Hleb. Fabregas is our only playmaker in midfield. We need consistency and we cant creat that with such a young squad

To Gunner Jillu.

You said, “We jist dont have that cutting edge without Hleb.”

I have a suggestion for you.

Please stop smoking crack…

Cech cost £10 million. And it seems like a pretty good deal now, doesn’t it?
