I’ve always pondered how it is that the Daily Star came to be Peter Hill-Wood’s favoured mouthpiece. With a look that suggests he’d not be out of place in Downton Abbey, it seems odd our cigar-smoking, Old Etonian chairman should like nothing more than a good old chinwag with a tabloid sporting more tits than a bird sanctuary.
Anyway, I digress…
P to the H to the W is super chillaxed at the fact that club captain Robin van Persie is too busy scoring goals to sit down and negotiate a new contract. Unperturbed by the behaviour of former players in similar situations the Gunners big cheese has revealed:
“I think Robin wants to stay. He seems very happy.
“Nothing has been discussed, though it is obvious we want him to stay. He doesn’t want to talk about a contract now and that’s fine with us.”
Nothing really surprising there. If RVP wants to commit his future to the club he will. For his part, the Dutchman has told The Times, that he’s not sure how his future will pan out.
“I do not know (what I will do), I cannot predict the future.
“Everybody makes his own history and only afterwards can you see how that went.”
While Van Persie is well within his rights to remain coy about committing to Arsenal in the long-term, his refusal to fully dimiss a link with Manchester City will likely be seized upon by the press ahead of Sunday’s match at the Etihad Stadium.
“I do not know,” he said. “For one thing, as an indication, when I came to Arsenal we immediately beat City.
“But in recent years much has happened in England.
“Nevertheless, I think the Premiership is still the best league in the world, it gives me everything I want.”
Wipe that panicked look off your face. Arseblog News urges calm.
