I never quite know how to feel when a big name player leaves my team and swans off to play his football elsewhere such as Robin Van Persie has done.
I am torn between thanking him for his years of service to Arsenal and wishing him all the best for the rest of his career and hoping that he pulls a hamstring in the first game for his new team and is forced to sit out the rest of the season.
Until August the 31st when the transfer window clangs shut, football fans are not only hoping that their team buys a superstar, but that they will not read that the superstar that they already own has been sold.
The third thing we scan the sport pages for is stories that will screw up our rivals so if the rumours of Tottenham's Luka Modric leaving for Real Madrid prove true, it will weaken Arsenals rivals which will cheer-up Arsenal fans who have once again seen the best player at the club jump ship.
Obviously Van Persie will be booed when he makes his return to The Emirates, if he isn't hobbling around due to a ripped hamstring that is, just as Nasri and Adebayor were vilified by the same people who cheered for them the season before.
So while it is still raw, i am leaning heavily towards Van Persie either running into a goalpost at Manchester United's training ground and knocking himself
unconscious until next March or getting some of that ridiculous amount of hair gel he piles on his head in his eyes and he is forced to wear eye patches over both eyes like some sort of Dutch Blackbeard the pirate.
Then i think about it and i realise that Manchester United has just shelled out £24 million for a 29 year old player who is made of balsa wood.
Man United treatment table meet Robin, Robin meet the Man United treatment table.
