Emirates stadium to be renamed ‘Robin Van Persie’s Left Foot Gallery’

Going Dutch

Arsenal have announced that their Emirates stadium is to be renamed Robin Van Persie’s Left Foot Gallery before today’s home match against Fulham, in order to fully represent the influence the aforementioned body part has had on the club’s current form.

Gooners are trusting that a couple more swings from the Dutch foot of wonder will be enough to leapfrog Newcastle in the table, and thinking to outplay the Magpies off the pitch too by upstaging their own rebranding of their stadium only weeks ago.

Arsenal’s statement read, “Of course Robin can use his head (mainly to remember not to pass to Theo Walcott) and his other foot, but it’s his trusty left peg which forms the foundation of our escape from the relegation zone this season.

“Sir Alex Ferguson had an Old Trafford stand named after him after doing so much for the club over 25 years, but the contribution from Van Persie’s foot this year alone is unprecedented and our decision to rename the whole stadium reflects that.

“We feel that it gives a more accurate description of what our supporters are paying so much to see as well – particularly comparing it to the brand name of an airline company.”

    Good times! Funny stuff. It’s the least Arsenal could do considering all Van Persie’s done for them this season! I just wish he’d been a lot less magical against Chelsea a few weeks ago.
