So you'd rather strip his captaincy and then bench him, then let him leave for free next year.

Look, this is Robin's job. We get a lot of pleasure out of watching him play because he's damn good at his job, but he has every right to negotiate his salary on the back of a fantastic season like he's had.

For my money Robin has been one of Arsenal's best captains in many years. The man has fire in his belly, gives his all on the pitch, always makes sure to give the lap of appreciation and let the fans know they're wanted, half the time his first action on scoring is to go over to the guy that gave him the assist. He's immaculate in interviews, leads by example on the field and off it...

I'm not about to blow the man but I'm just well short of it. For people to say he's not done enough or is being disrespectful at present is bollox. Personally I think he'll sign but even if he doesn't, he's given us a fantastic year, we'll get some money out of (let's be honest) a pretty injury prone player, and AFC will march on regardless.

But don't slag the man off.
The only part of this I do not agree with is that he will sign.
