I wouldn't read too much into Robin van Persie being 'coy' about his contract situation at Arsenal.
He is bound to be after all isn't he?
Robin's next contract, wherever that may be, is going to be the most important one he will sign in his life. Well, except for his next mobile phone contract I suppose.
It will be his last 'big' deal and of course he has to weigh up his options. And his free minutes.
If it's any consolation, and I doubt it will be, at least he won't weigh up his Golden Boot to get the best deal on eBay like Samir Nasri would.
I'm quite calm about the whole thing actually. Obviously I want him to sign a new deal at Arsenal, but I also want to marry Kelly Brook, and I realise I'm not going to get everything I want in life am I?
In my very honest opinion, I honestly think that he will stay with us and sign for life.
Now I know that counts for nothing. I have no inside information on him. Its only my gut feeling. Although that feeling could be the dodgy sausage roll I had for lunch earlier.
Regardless of how that feeling in my stomach came about I still believe in it.
Of course some players out there earn a lot more than Robin does. And the worst thing is the Dutchman has more talent in one of his little toes than most of them.
This would turn anyone's head. And I'm sure he could earn nearly double somewhere else.
But, for me, it's not all about money for RvP.
Obviously whatever deal comes his way means he won't go starving. He could probably afford to have caviar at least twice a week. Sharks caviar too.
But there are some thing's money can't buy and more importantly he wants to see his wife and kids happy.
And going by what his missus has said recently she is more than happy with him staying at Arsenal.
I know he wants to win things. And he can. At Arsenal. This season hasn't been the greatest but a bad one has still seen us finish above Chelsea, S*urs and Liverpool.
And I thought we were in a relegation battle.
Robin wants to see Arsenal compete. He is a Gooner and when he wears that Arsenal shirt his chest swells to twice the size of Pamela Anderson's.
He wants trophies, for Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger and the club need to show we will compete next season. The early signing of Lukas Podolski suggests to me a change of transfer tactics and I expect some decent players to arrive.
I've said it before, and been wrong, but I think the penny has finally dropped at Arsenal. We need to start showing how big a club we are and show our intent in the transfer market to do that.
Try to ignore all the 'crunch' contract talks in the coming week or you will end up going barking mad.
What will be, will be. Regardless of what happens Arsenal will still be standing. Unless several raving lunatic Gooners pull it down.
As I've said, I think Robin will stay. I might be wrong but its very rare that I am. I have a 20% success ratio.
Don't get sucked into what the media say. The most important thing is the club and Robin are sitting down, having a cup of coffee with a bit of cake, to discuss the contract.
In the mean time bombard him with tweets, messages and use emotional blackmail to the best of your ability.
