Robin Van Persie - PFA Player Of The Year
Congratulations to Robin Van Persie who last night won the PFA Player of the year.
The award is rated very highly by players because the voters are their fellow professionals. The timing of the voting process is debatable and many say the writers award is better because the votes are in closer to the end of the season but to get an award where your fellow players have rated you as the best player in the league is a remarkable achievement.
He was a clear favourite to most to win the award, considering he has scored against 17 teams this season! At times, he has carried Arsenal but Robin being Robin was quick to praise his team mates and some of the assists by Theo Walcott and Alex Song have been simply outstanding.
Well done to the best player in the league and I hope his here at Arsenal for many years to come.
