Robin van Persie is annoyed

Arsenal played Manchester United at home on Sunday afternoon and after recovering from a 1 goal deficit and finally starting to threaten Sir Alex Ferguson's team, Arsene Wenger took off Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to the surprise and dismay of everyone.  In the whole fucking world.

I won't give you too many details so you can just watch that video I made but suffice to say, Wenger earned himself a chorus of "you don't know what you're doing" which probably made Oxlade-Chamberlain's replacement, one Andrei Arshavin, feel pretty amazing about himself.

Wenger is probably right though, withdrawing the most influential player at the tipping point of the match will definitely be good long term for him.  Lionel Messi and Ronaldo used to play lots of games when they were 18 and look what happened to them.  Wait...
