Arsenal gaffer Arsene Wenger has hailed van Persie’s amazing strike as ‘technically perfect’.

Ever since the ball smashed into the back of the Charlton onion bag, every football fan in Europe has had some thing to say on the goal. And Arsene Wenger is no different.

‘It was outstanding, quite unbelievable. Nobody expected that. When Eboue crossed I did not see anybody in the box so it thought, like many times, we have nobody in there. Then suddenly Van Persie arrives.

‘Technically it was perfect, with full pace and power. I felt the ball would go over the bar at the start, then it finished in the top corner. It is the goal of a lifetime.’

When Wenger was asked if it was the best Arsenal goal under his reign, he replied,

‘The best? I must check that because I have seen some good ones. But it is certainly in the top five.’

And he’s never wrong.

  • Ripsnorter? Ha ha. Isn’t that something Mark Bosnich does in toilet cubicles with five pound notes?

  • I like it, I’m going to add it to my own personal thesaurus along with bouncebackability. In my third year at uni, I managed to get the word ‘quasi-phantasmic’ into an essay. Who needs vocabulary when you can just make words up?

  • I dont think I’ve seen many better in my time. Superb! Les hope that it gives him a huge confidence boost and he can start banging them in for us!

  • I’d weigh in with Pires v. Villa, pure class. RVP’s at home to Blackburn was pretty special, we’ve been spoiled in this category.

  • I think that Rosicky against Hamburg was the best. Not only because it was a great goal, it was at a time when Arsenal were struggling. Rosicky had a hack and showed the Gunners that you are actually aloowed to shoot! Think about it, ever since that goal we’ve been having shots from everywhere and playing much beter

  • ye there so many goals but van persie has scored so many wondergoals and im pleased that we have someone who is so young with so much good to progress him to his potential in the future. lets hope every1 can learn by his example

  • i remember a goal suker scored for us when he was here, not sure if it was vs southampton or sunderland, but he received a long pass, controlled da ball and hit a beauty with his left foot which hit the post and went in, that was some goal too..

  • i was replaying it over and over again, what a goal, sheer class and technical perfection.. and he knew exactly what he was doing…

  • RVP was stunningly fantastic. His memorable goal that gave 3 points to Arsenal will be a stucked in many fans mind for generations to come. Well done. Gunners are truly gunning now.

  • Davor Sukers goal was PURECLASS best goal the ARSE have scored and rvp goal had an element of luck, great strike but could of easily went over the bar. Suker was sublime skill and he meant it to the inch. What a player, he was finished when he went to highbury.

  • not as finished as when teddy came back from the mancs to re-sign for u! u booed him when he left and then welcomed him back like he was god! we always seem to get lucky goals especially against s***s, how lucky was Henry when he rang the length of the pitch and smacked 1 past your hapless team?

  • You’re actually trying to detract from RVP’s goal by saying “it could have easily gone over the bar” …………. Seriously, serious question, do you know anything about football? At all??
