        van Persie leaving was not the start of Arsenal's decline. Nasri, and Clichy had gone to City. Barca had taken Song and Fabregas. van Persie was the final straw, not the beginning

                  He was not happy with the contract offer, and he felt we were not ambiitious enougth. I dont have a go at him, we were not and he went and won a league.

                    So in short: he left because he didn't get a new deal.

                            Arsenal have a well documented history of letting their best players contract run down! We all know this so let's stop pretending to be surprised by what RVP is saying. 100% believe what he said.

                                    No matter he stayed at Arsenal or he left for United, he still was the best striker in the world.

                                      Alawys loved RVP when he joined as a 17 year old he was amazing, so sad to never see Fabregas and RVP play together regularly seemed like one or the other was always injured. Not to keen on this chat though, ill just remember that volly against Charlton.

                                        Robin Van Persie was the greatest Arsenal to Man Utd. transfer! This is what Sanchez could have been. hopefully he finds his Mojo in inter then come back.

                                                The fact of the matter is that Robin was very ambitious and he was very outspoken about it when he was interviewed when he was interviewed by Dutch national media. Arsenal were selling their best players and were not willing to upgrade contracts during that time. Which is why Robin decided to look elsewhere. He wanted to win trophies, which wouldn't be possible anymore, because Arsenal was losing a lot of quality and determined to think they could manage it with talents from their own academy plus transfers not worthy of wearing the kit at that time. So I don't blame him for leaving Arsenal. Just look what happened to Arsenal after he left. It kind of justifies why van Persie left.

Gazidis and Wenger were balancing the books for The Emirates expenditure. Arsenal was a great business and the best academy/finishing school for players and now they are spending big to catch up. They should have leveraged their debt further at that time from 2009 onwards. Little did they know the most ridiculous TV deal ever was less than a decade away.

                                                                  • pliv1

His lie that he was never offered a deal makes no sense - 8 years at arsenal how many did he remain injury free??. He was given contracts by wenger when he was injured. What annoys me about van Persie is he never thanked arsenal and wenger for sticking by him. No other manager in the top 4 would have kept him . He would have been released .

                                                                    I understand he left because he knew arsenal were not competitive and we wouldnt challenge. He had his first season where he was fully fit for the club.

                                                                    He helped us qualify for the champions league and we got money for him , we were not competitive for any cup

                                                                    But he should some respect that the patience the club gave him

                                                                    As for joe cole. He should look at his own career - a career of unfulfilled talent.

                                                                            Every time he scored against us, he was respectful, even though the fans cussed him out. Obviously he got tired of it in the end, and celebrated.

                                                                            He single handedly got us 3rd in the last season at arsenal, which is one of the biggest accomplisments in my oppinion
