I had to break my self imposed radio silence when I opened an email from the @Arsenal_Winston today. I present the words without comment as I am quite frankly speechless.
Wenger says he does not find it painful to watch Van Persie delivering, decisively, game after game in a different shade of red. "But what is painful is to see United so far in front of us," he says. "We knew when we sold him to United that would be the case." That is a stark admission from Arsenal's perspective. From a United point of view, when he picked up that phone, Ferguson sure knew what he was doing
