Like most men, there are only two women in my life who can get me to do things when they want them done. My mum and my wife.

My wife can use “the glare”, the cold shoulder or the threat to with hold certain privileges to get her way, whilst my mum`s continuous threats of a good old fashioned clip round the ear have been more than enough to keep me in check from childhood to well into my thirties.

With any luck, the same will be true in the van Persie household after Mrs van Persie and Mrs van Persie offered their opinions that Robin should stay at Arsenal.

His Misuses says the striker should repay the loyalty shown to by the club,

“‘Arsenal showed faith in Robin when he was going through a lean time, so we should not repay them by thinking about other clubs.

‘Our home life and our children are happy in London.’


Whilst his mum says that the adoration that our great club offers is a good a reason as any to stay,

“Arsenal love him and that`s a great incentive to stay. Arsenal are a fantastic club, They have no debts and Robin is idolised there.”

van Persie, a self confessed mummy`s boy, should sign a new deal if he knows what`s good for him, because if I was only allowed to offer one piece of advice to my son, it would be to never piss off the women in his life.*
