Arsenal chat

Let's all laugh at Arsenal! Or not because it's not as much fun when you find yourself laughing every week. After their humiliation in Europe and an FA Cup exit at the hands of Sunderland, Zlatan has told RVP to leave and Pep Guardiola is rumoured to be lined up to take over from Wenger. It's all probably nonsense.

Robin Van Persie is far too good for Arsenal and needs to get out this summer if he wants to win something. I know this, he knows this and Zlatan Ibrahimovic knows this.

“When you don’t win anything for years, people understand why you leave like Cesc Fabregas. Football is all about winning. If you don’t win you want to go

“I don’t know what he is thinking but I know what I would do..."

Zlatan knows all. The man has won the league regardless of what club he has been with every season for the last 8 years. You can't argue with that. If Van Persie stays for another season he is going to end up hunchbacked from the weight of carrying the rest of the team through every game. We do sometimes forget that footballers are humans and have other considerations in life such as friends and family but who cares about them? He can get a new family, one with an untwistable stomach. Sorry I've been watching the Simpsons.

Another rumour that kees on creeping up his Pep Guardiola's  taking over from Arsene Wenger. Pep signs a rolling one-year contract every season since managing Barcelona is so easy that he has to decide if he can be arsed with another year at the end of every campaign. Eventually he always signs on for another year because like most of us, the easiest option is always best. I imagine he sits at home trawling through reddit and youtube for hours on his laptop until he hits the wall. Eventually he fires up his inbox and just sends an e-mail. "will do 1 more year. Pep X" and then heads to Brazzers.
