Bouchra, wife of Netherlands NT & Arsenal FC's striker, Robin van Persie appears in Engelen van Oranje - a special TV program for SOS Children's Village charity in Kisumu, Kenya. Full episode can be viewed here (full credit to Net 5)

Props to octoberorange for the heads up on the video and iamyourmind for the translation!

Bouchra, 26 years old and the wife of star player Robin v Persie. They live in London with their 2 kids. But today I (the presenter) am meeting them in their 2nd home in Rotterdam.

After a glorious career with Feyenoord, Robin transferred to Arsenal. Right now, he's one of the best strikers in the world. When I meet them, Robin is sadly injured so that's why they temporarily came back to The Netherlands.

Robin: When I heard about it (that SOS Children's Village thing) I said, "you have to do it. That is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Don't worry about the kids, they will be taken great care of."
Presenter: Are you happy to be back in Rotterdam?
Bouchra: Yes, but I have to be honest. We have been here for weeks or months and I feel like going home. England feels like home.
Presenter: How come (England feels more like home)?
Bouchra: I think because our kids were born there.

Then Dina Layla who's in her arm gets sick and Robin cleans it up. Bouchra jokes about there being absolutely no glamour in their home.

Bouchra: I think that a lot of people think we are shopping all day long, don't do anything around the house. But I have two children, I am just a housewife. I also have to clean, feed my kids, just normal things every mother does.
Presenter: How long have you and Robin been together?
Bouchra: We've been together for 7 ½ years. And on the 31st of March we've been married for 6 years.
presenter: How did you meet?
Bouchra: I was in my car, I had to drop somebody off somewhere but it was very early so I was in my pajamas. Then the car behind me started to honk the horn. And it turned out to be Robin and a friend of his. (that friend had introduced them before)

Then she says she looked horrible that day but Robin then says he thought she looked nice and that he was impressed.

Bouchra is going to leave her family all alone since the birth of her daughter. She says the worst thing will be that she'll miss her children and her husband and would probably worry about them. Robin has to run the house all by himself. Let's hope he can do that without Bouchra by his side.

Robin: When she's around I am a bit of a slob. Baby socks and pants will lie in a corner and she will pick them up, show them to me and drop them so I have to clean them up myself.

Then the presenter asks if Robin can cook. He says Bouchra is an amazing cook, so if he's alone he'll eat with friends or they come to his house and they order something. He can't cook for himself. Then Bouchra explains that she doesn't just want to donate a large amount of money for the charity. She feels good she's able to help herself. She wants to see with her own eyes to feel and see how those people live and cope.

Hi everyone! I know... been like forever and a half, right? I was recently contacted with a suggestion that we change the layout. I know it's been this way almost since I started this comm and it is probably due for a face lift. THUS if you'd like to help (because Lord knows I'm the opposite of tech savvy) with html, graphics, layout suggestions, then please, contact me! We can collaborate and make Robin's page a bit more hotness like him :)

(also... Robin? Baby Girl? OMG I need to catch up!)

from www.tipstar.co.uk - Robin Van Persie reflects on last night's Champions League game against AZ. He also talks about his team mates Cecs Fabregas and Andre Arshavin and how important they are to the team. He says the team is looking sharp and the Arsenal team are enjoying their football.

I don't know how many of you watch the Arsenal vodcast, but this week there was a really cute one of Robin and Shaqueel at the Junior Gunners party so I had to post it :). The video is the full vodcast, but skip ahead to 1:25ish for the feature.

Shaqueel kicks really hard! And so like his father  ♥

I know this is old news and most peeps already watch Robin-Shaqueel cuteness during the Emirates Cup (and kill our ovaries in the process). But I haven't seen the vid post anywhere. So I decided to make the vid and share it with you gais.

Enjoy the vid :)

what my post would be without gifs, right?Collapse )

Hi, me again. Hope I'm not becoming a nuisance D:
Just some Robin spamming from the Arsenal vs. Olympiacos match.

Post match interview.

Robin's goal for those who missed it. Arsenal won 2-0 with goals from Robin (78') and Arshavin (86').

Match pictures under the cut.Collapse )

Aaaand for those of you who can read dutch, Robin did some interviews which you can read here and here.
EDIT: Link to part 3 of dutch interview here. Tomorrow part 4 should be up on that website too.

First time posting & I've noticed that this community seems to be a little dead, so I bring some videos and photomanip to hopefully liven things up :D.

Robin talks about "Mr. Adebayor", Arsenal's chances for winning the Premier League, and goal scoring.


Robin's goal against Fulham last Saturday where Arsenal won 1-0.

Don't take this picture too seriously...Collapse )
