A Possible Day Of Reckoning At The Emirates
The obnoxious thought of Robin Van Persie ending his trophy drought at the expense of his former side Arsenal is an ever growing possibility. The number at the back of the Dutchman’s shirt, 20 symbolised RVP’s intent on bringing Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson closer to British football immortality. The glooming thought of United dropping points in the following coming weeks sets up a momentous stipulation, the contemplation of the Gooners worse of seasons will indeed concede them to feel that hell will disembark at the Emirates come 12:45 27th April.
To avoid this potential hot-blooded circumstance, it all boils down to things remaining pretty much straight forward and the durable winning streak of Ferguson’s men continuing in the league. With a near injury free squad, Ferdinand seemingly permitted, Manchester United have welcomed the so-called ”Business-end” in the best shape possible. And with the form of key players such as Wayne Rooney and of course Robin Van Persie, both enjoying relatively self-approved international breaks, maybe the Gunners worst fears will be aborted and the Gooners can continue their loathed onslaught of a once beloved hero without the darkened deliberation that that very player will not be parading his new “I came here to win trophies” t-shirt come the final whistle.
Then again such as the volatility of the Premier League the alternative outcomes appear to be endless. United could very clinch title number 20 at home by beating title rivals and neighbours Manchester City, if they do endure on an unprecedented poor run of form.
The next 12 points are there for the taking for Manchester United, four wins and title number 20 is theirs, however slip up and the daunting trip of heading to the Emirates looms the head of you know who, I know what scenario RVP would much prefer.
