After we reported that Robin van Persie was being linked with a move back to Arsenal, we noticed that just about every Gooner commenting on the situation would rather stick wasps where the sun doesn’t shine than have him back in north London, which gave us an idea.
Everyone loves a poll – especially Arsenal fans. So, we put it to you via our Twitter account: which would you prefer? Robin van Persie; the Twitter user whose answer inspired the poll’s cat; Gervinho wearing a pair of clogs; or Arsene Wenger.
I was actually a little surprised that 24% even want that man back at the club. However, as you can see, the slight majority would prefer Wenger to full on his striking boots and play up front, with Gervinho in a pair of clogs coming a close second with 27%.
Who would you rather play up front for Arsenal? [Inspired by @AbuSalwaa ]

Essentially, the gist is, Gooners would rather anyone but Robin van Persie playing up front for Arsenal.
Obviously, we didn’t put the genuine two options – Giroud or a new signing – on the list but we figured we already knew the answer to that one.
