Van Persie's got Arsenal holding on

The man, at 25, is showing himself. Depending on how this rough season ends, we may need a tribute to him.

Thanks to Gunnerblog for providing the link to the goal against Everton on Wednesday.

Here it is.  Remarkably well taken after he slips off of the shoulder of the defender and quickly lashed into the net. Note that he didn't pull it back and try to chip, he didn't look for another man, he didn't try to slide it by Tim Howard. He simply used the cunning of a great striker, the touch of a great striker, and the will to score of a great striker.
