That's OK, Robin - We Don't Like You Either

Robin van Persie has opinions, man:

People who are watching the game on television and fans really do not want to see these kind of things. If you want to witness a lot of complaints, you should just go the bakery or something. There's always people nagging there as well.

Chelsea players are always bitching against the referees. I really cannot understand that. Just shut the f*** up and focus on playing football.

Firstly - yeah, Chelsea do some pretty annoying things sometimes. Some of our players have reputations as a little bit... obnoxious (and not just in the hilariously Didier Drogba way), and while I'm not going to name any names on account of being a Chelsea fan and hearting them all anyway, there have been times where I've been disappointed by the conduct of Chelsea players.

But then again, there have been times where I've been saddened by the actions of Arsenal players too, including the likes of Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabregas and even manager Arsene Wenger, who is to whining what I am to constructing terrible metaphors (and syntactical structures!) in this sentence. So RVP can go ahead and shut up. I can complain at referees because I don't whine at referees. He cannot because he does.

And I'm not even going to get into the bakery thing. What on earth is up with that? Also, last I checked, Chelsea were significantly better at playing football than Arsenal are, and have been for some time.
