    Van Persie is delighted with how things have turned out, with the 29-year-old admitting that he needed to make a fresh start and take on a new challenge.

    "Arsenal are a great club and I always had a good feeling but after eight years, sometimes you feel that you need a new challenge," Van Persie told Sky Sports in an exclusive interview.

    "I found that challenge at Manchester United. I do feel that I am surrounded by champions.

    "I do feel that this is exactly the right time to be here. I don't think it would have been better to come here earlier. Everything has gone this way for a reason.

    "When I extended my deal a couple of years ago at Arsenal, I felt that was the right move for me - to stay and play because I wasn't finished there. Now, since last summer, I wanted to go for a big challenge, and this was the biggest challenge for me.

    "I think every day tells me that I made the right move. It's nothing bad about Arsenal. No player is bigger than the club, Arsenal will always challenge for trophies and be up there. It was just that after eight years I was ready to move on and try something else."
    WOT A KUNT

    Yeah i cant argue with him really.

    He'll get a PL medal minumum this year, as opposed to another year of fuck all, surronded by lame fuckers like Gervinho.

    I bet it isn't even much of a laugh in the arsenal dressing room, now that Eboue is gone.

    I like this scenario.

    We get 4th and you don't, and miss out the CL. Then next season you come back and finish 4th and we come 5th, but we win the CL, so you miss out again.

    Then you lose all your new good players because you didn't make the CL and because of stupid contracts you get no fees, and they all come to us, and your fans all leave, and you get relegated and we win the league etc etc. It's all mapped out.

    Remember when Vassell moved to some Turkish side and they celebrated like Jesus himself was coming to play for them?

    He's a good Championship player...I don't think anyone knows much more than that really. The next great white hope of english football as per usual: he could be the next Downing, could be the next Walcott, could be the next Jeffers.

    Not saying all that to the club in private and requesting a transfer, and releasing a public statement shitting on the club and manager that made him was really classy indeed.

    RvP is a piece of shit. Not that that marks him out as particularly special amongst his fellow pros.

    English mark up then.

    I would like to see another stand out amazing player like Messi, Ronaldo. Must be due one again.

    Still reckon a lot of that was down to his agent.

    Or maybe it's just because, try as I might, I just can't bring myself to hate him. I even didn't mind the SS interview yesterday.

    Comparing his stats this year and last with Thomas Ince, Ince is a much better prospect.

    Lots of noise now that Arsenal are considering hijacking Yanga-M'Biwa's proposed move to Newcastle.

    Well, if we don't get this lad now, then we only have ourselves to blame. Why the fuck all our potential signings have to be paraded in the media before we can be arsed to do anything I will never know. I swear other clubs don't carry on like this when they see a player they want.

    So, not a single word about Adkins in the Matchday Programme for the Southampton v Everton game.

    Shockingly disrespectful to be honest. Such a shame that all his effort got him nothing and nowhere in the end. To take Southampton up 51 places in the Football League then to be discarded just like that is unfortunately the nature of football these days.

    Yeah, how dare he move to a club that could actually win something before the prime of his career was over.

    GNev's analysis of Vidic glaring at De Gea:

    "He stares at him. For about 3, 4 - 5 seconds.

    It's not because he fancies him...






    ...Believe me."

    No huge surprise De Gea's 2 errors this season have been involving Vidic. They've played very little together. I'm sure the more they play the better the defence as a whole will perform.

    Got no problem with him wanting out, but the way he went about it was completely classless. Tell the club in private we can't meet your ambition and that you want to leave, simple. That statement was totally needless. World class footballer but also a world class cunt.

    If City had a half-decent manager, he'd have as much chance of winning something as he did at Arsenal.

    i.e. none
