Normally anything that Alisher Usmanov, the Uzbeki oligarch would have to say about Arsenal could be dispatched with a flick of the head. But what he said about Van Persie sums up the state of affairs in the Arsenal boardroom which is there is no state of affairs under the majority ownership of Stan Kroenke, who remains a cipher, a zombie wheeled out at various points of the year to parrot out a boilerplate script.
