"Fabregasted!" by The Redneck Gooner

What does it mean to keep hold of a top player? by FH

Many comments recently from fans of Arsenal, ex-players and even players (e.g Bacary Sagna) show anger at the fact that we, as a club, can't hold onto top players. The anger seems to be justified too – in recent seasons, we have seen the likes of Flamini, Henry, Adebayor, Toure, Nasri, Fabregas, Clichy, Song and the infamous Robin Van Persie all leave, some of them to our rivals.

The Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has told journalists that he didn't think that Arsenal's Robin Van Persie would end up at the Etihad Stadium this summer, but he was probably forced into a statement like that because of Arsene Wenger's anger last year on Man City's proclamations about Samir Nasri.

Thoughts On The Robin Van Persie Situation

By now you must have seen this statement on RvP's official website announcing his decision to not renew his contract with Arsenal.

This was probably an unsurprising yet gut-wrenching moment for many Arsenal fans. Ever since his decision to postpone talks to the summer, which only led to a ban on media interaction imposed by the club, there have been indications that Van Persie was not happy at the club and will not renew his contract.

It has been quite an eventful 24 hours for Arsenal Football Club. First, Robin van Persie announced on his personal website that he would not be signing another contract. That alone is perfectly reasonable a man approaching 29 who has one big contract left in him is entitled not to sign a new one with his current employer.

Â Of the millions of words written on the transfer business and the subsequent season, few have covered the fact that Arsene Wenger had a massive tactical challenge in front of him after the departure of his talisman and captain, the player who could have taken his place in midfield, and that of a very hardworking and reliable defender who even though popular opinion was to the contrary remains one of the best at his job in the League.
