It now seems clear that Robin van Persie has played his last game for Arsenal.

News that the Dutchman will not be involved in the club's pre-season tour of the Far East leaves little room for doubt that he is on his way out of The Emirates.

It is being reported that Arsenal have turned down an offer from Manchester United and will only entertain bids in excess of £20 million although, they are hoping to hold out for between £25 and £30 million.

Regardless of whether Chelsea beat Napoli tonight, and regardless of whether Chelsea qualify for the Champions League or not this season, the signs are crystal clear. The next Chelsea manager must either be extremely special (even Mourinho would be hard-pressed to fix the current Chelsea state, and he's not coming), or it needs to be someone who commands widespread respect and authority inside the club.

The gentle odour of fair play that has permeated the afternoon continues to waft, with soul-affirming footage from the Northern Ireland Premiership game between Dungannon Swifts and Ballymena United.

We join the action at 0-0 with Dungannon being awarded a penalty after Ballymena centre-back Gavin Taggart catches the ball in the area mistakenly thinking he'd heard the whistle sound for play to stop so his injured teammate, Chris Rodgers (who had dislocated a shoulder), could be stretchered from the field.

It's a difficult choice. Are Italian boss Giovanni Trapattoni's "well-drilled" Ireland team more difficult to beat, or to watch? Such is the quality of Ireland's Group C opponents in Euro 2012 – numbers one, four and nine in the last FIFA world rankings I saw – that ‘Trap's' team could be difficult to watch in a "hide behind the sofa" manner rather than because of their reliance on Keith Andrews and Glenn Whelan for central-midfield creativity.
