    Couple of points I’m curious about , I’ll state them clearly if I can

    1) Agreed about “Legacy” he’s still a very good player no doubt , but his injury record can’t simply be ignored. I’m sorry I’m not willing to introspect for a man who publicly questioned the manager and pathetically tried to get the fans on his side. You can’t expect fans to completely detach from this and yes “hate ” just because he’s a good player. As Tim Stillman put it , a lot of fans take the bullet train to the last stage of depression “acceptance ” but several lounge around and see see the sights of “anger ” and “denial ” . Why are the fans hating on him? It’s simple

    The bottom line is that I want to win trophies with Arsenal, not with anybody else. I know you can win trophies in many countries and in many ways, but I want to do that in our way and in an Arsenal shirt.
    ‘I’m sure I could win things at another team in another country, but would it feel like our trophy, my trophy? I’m not sure it would. Anything we win here will come from the heart and that’s what I want. It’s my dream and I see no point in speaking about other teams when I have these dreams. I think other people know that about me; I’m just hungry to win with Arsenal and that’s it – Robin van Persie, February 2011

    It’s easy to take the cynical stance , but you can’t tell people to just accept it and move on.

    2) I would certainly agree that going to United is more than just about the money , and you won’t find many Arsenal fans disagreeing . By all accounts he’s getting more than 200k , how is this different from going to City? Let’s not kid ourselves Money is a big factor. And that’s a case for everyone.
