“Oooh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day...I’ve got a wonderful feelin’...everything’s goin’ my way!”


And so Santi Cazorla’s signing is confirmed! Ah, what a wonderful hour it was. I’d just eaten dinner, New Zealand was beating Australia at the Olympics, my room was nice and toasty-warm. Para. Para. Paradise, to quote Coldplay.

So, the past 24 hours have been viewed through the rosiest of tinted glasses. And thusly, rumour upon rumour was declaring that a remarkable U-Turn had occurred, that the talismanic Arsenal striker Robin van Persie had been “impressed” by the Gunners’ transfer market activity (“impressed”...god, what a horrifyingly condescending word for it) and was preparing to sign an extension to his contract.

Wouldn’t that be something?

Well, I know the odds of it actually happening are slim to none, but that’s what they said to O.J. and look what happened there!

Here are five factors that I think might influence Robin van Persie to stay with Arsenal.

Feel free to drop a comment with your own personal thoughts on the matter! There are no bad comments. Only bad people.
