YES PER!!! LEGEND Unbelievable performance
Can't see how he isn't an Arsenal legend. Been an absolute rock for most of the time we've had him here and yet again he showed up in a big game with a terrific defensive performance. Nearly 400 days since his last start.
A true captain! What a performance!
This guy has been given far too much stick, when he's been such an asset to this club over the years. His one big game, his one moment to shine and he dellviered a truly captain's performance. Bloody magificant Per.
Great from Per.
Amazing composed performance had Costa in his back pocket and was absolutely fucking everywhere.
Being out so long and stepping up in a final the way he did, I salute BFG!
MOTM for me.
NO ONE CAN EVER CHAT SHIT ABOUT HIM AGAIN
BFG, utter legend.
When I saw him in the lineup I got worried, but I hadn't seen him play so long that i forgot about what he lacks in pace he makes up for with perfect positioning and reading of the game. Besides that he's long as fuck it's hard to dribble past him. I was a fool to doubt him.
Hasn't started a game for 13 months. Has never played in a formation of 3 centre backs. Puts on his shoes and the armband for the final game of the season. Flawless.
@Castiel team Per from day one, feels good.
Mertenbauer right now:
I love him. If you don't, fuck you.
He wore that armband like a true club legend.
BIG FUCKING GERMAN
WE'VE GOT A BIG FUCKING GERMAN
In a way i hope he doesnt leave us for a little while let. Lets face it he is great for the club even if he hasnt played much he has never moaned or thrown things outta the pram always professional and has a huge amount of respect. His game doesnt need pace so i reckon we should get some years out of him. Maybe he should be given a position in coaching maybe after his playing days he actually knows positioning and knows what the fuck he is doing.
Absolutely legend, not playing for over a year and then comes in and solidifies our weakened defence like a true Kapitan!
BFG! Love this guy!
What was it...392 days since his last game? He had no right to play that good. He has a fucking strong mentality. Leader all day. Love you Per
He is a ze german
