I love Robin van Persie but if the main reason he is reluctant to sign a new contract is because he wants to see if Arsenal can compete for honours then he can jog right on in my opinion.
I understand that he wants to win things. He should step into some Gooner shoes! But he needs to understand that he has contributed to the barren spell himself.
How often has he been on the treatment table rather than actually on the pitch? I'd say more often than Paris Hilton pulls her knickers up and down. Thats a lot. I've seen the DvD.
In a way I'd say that Robin owes Arsenal, Arsene Wenger and especially Gooners for sticking by him despite all his injury woes. We have all been patient with him throughout his time with Arsenal.
Perhaps the real sticking point is the amount of money on offer. If Adebayor is worth the reported £80,000 a week he earns then so is Robin.
I reckon that is the true reason for the contract talks stalling. I symphathise with the Dutchman if that is the case.
Parity with Adebayor should be the offer that Arsenal have made van Persie. He has been there longer and is more influential, with Gooners and the squad. Even if it is from the sick bay.
His glass body has held up for longer periods this campaign. I hope for better in the future. Maybe then we can win things! But Robin needs to commit first.
Keep it Goonerish..........
