I woke up today to my daily routine, brush my teeth, have some heavy breakfast and watch the news. To my shock the headlines ruined my morning, severely so even. Manchester United had demolished Aston Villa to claim their 20th league title, disgusted, i learnt Robin Van Persie had scored a first half hat-trick to give Manchester the title. To understand my reaction you need to have read this , my disgust at Van Persie joining the red half of Manchester from my beloved Arsenal.
Disgusted and as hurt as i was i could not help but admit it, Van Persie won, in every way you can think. Not only did he join a club that gave him his first domestic title, he will finish the season as top goal-scorer and eventually will be voted the PFA player of the year given these heroics come at a time when voting has just commenced and Luis Suarez decided to tank his prospects in a moment of utter madness. Van Persie scored three goals and handed Ferguson a trophy. The sad and embarrassing thing is that since Manchester United claimed the title in the Villa game they would be given a guard of honor at the stadium they play at next, which will be as luck would have it The Emirates. What a way to stick it to the fans! To the team he described as 'unambitious'.
The fans at the Emirates should not even bother booing Van Persie. He has won. We lost. Its as simple as that. We might feel betrayed by what he did but we cannot sit here and pretend he did not just achieve what he said he wanted.
You win Van Persie. You Win. :'''(
