Piers Morgan Goes on Twitter Rampage After Robin van Persie Signs for Man Utd

CNN talk show host, and obviously a rabid Arsenal fan, Piers Morgan, is in a tweeting frenzy over Robin van Persie signing with the dreaded Manchester United.

This isn't surprising, given that Morgan had previously tweeted he was going to "throw myself off Santa Monica pier in lead weights" if RVP left. 

Well, he left, and Piers apparently isn't going to quietly chuck himself off any piers (Piers off a pier—I suppose there is some symmetry there). 

In bursts of 140 characters or less, Morgan went on an extended tirade. At first, he admits his own folly in character judgement:

Don't worry, Piers—we've all been burned by a former flame. Morgan made it clear that his anger was not isolated. He had some words for Ivan Gazidis as well:

Then, as if van Persie's new location was really beginning to sink in, he was in midseason form with this taunt:

Like all good dark clouds, there is a silver lining to all of this, as Morgan puts so kindly in this tweet:

And he brings the whole mess home with this simple hashtag:

There are a few more, too, but I think you get the idea.

While Morgan is clearly out of his mind with disgust and anger, it is understandable, and it is safe to say that countless Arsenal fans echo his feelings. 

This is a player they have supported over the years during difficult times. They finally got their payoff for this patience, and now they have to watch him jump ship to a rival. 

Morgan touches upon the center of all of this with this tweet:

These intense feelings will certainly subside, but that is going to happen very, very slowly. All of this is going to set the table for an interesting scene the next time Arsenal hosts Man Utd.
