PICTURE: Van Persie Rips Piers Morgan

All season, Piers Morgan has been giving shit to Robin van Persie after his move from Arsenal to Manchester United. He took to calling him “Van Pursestrings”, implying that he was a mercenary. A few months after joining United, Van Persie has shown exactly why he left the club, with him winning the Premier League for the first time and Golden Boot again.

Piers took to Twitter to explain how Van Persie has responded.

“I just received a package from Manchester United press office. ‘Robin wanted you to have to this.’ The package contained a double sided framed photograph. Of Van Pursestrings kissing the Premier League trophy. After all the grief I’ve given Van Pursestrings, he’s allowed a whack back. I’ll just have to take it on the chins.”

  2. Jay says:

    Robin has a sense of humour lol.

  3. matt says:

    It would have been better if it was just a photo of RVP with the words

    “You’re welcome”

  4. Jay says:

    Looks like Monaco have hit the jackpot £60 million for Moutinho and James Rodriguez. Now they are rumoured to be trying to sign Evra.

  5. Costas says:

    Ha! Well played Robin. Give it to the fat twat.

  6. CoryH says:

    My word, that’s hilarious. Much deserved with all the shit he received from Piers throughout the season. That picture is priceless.

  7. champ20ns says:

  8. Kings says:

  10. King Eric says:

    Kings – Sorry mate just seen your comment!!

    Well played Robin! :lol:

  12. TheCANTONA says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!! well done RvP!!

  13. A says:

    Why do people care about Piers Morgan?

  14. Sparkz says:

    Piers is the most smug, irritating git on Twitter. I remember him actually trying to claim RVP didn’t join a better club lol.

    Well played Robin!

  15. A says:

    Twitter (and Facebook). The epitome of what is wrong with today’s society.

    Paul Scholes said about Facebook: I don’t understand why you have to tell people what you are doing.

    Paul Scholes is right.

  16. wakey says:


    Except you are completely writing off Twitter and Facebook based on a misinformed belief of what people on the whole use it for.

    Facebooks slightly closer to what you are describing because its supposed to be a system to let people you know about events in your life BUT twitter is primary aimed as a platform to share views on things and engage with people rather than a running commentary of what you are doing.

    Infact anyone looking down on twitter like you are on blog comments is being fairly hypocritical as you are doing exactly what twitter is aimed at doing and for that matter what 99% of people use it for

  17. WeAreUnited says:


    ooooooo robin van persieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  18. Warwick says:

    Rockin Robin!

  19. Singh7 says:

    Piers Morgan is an overrated overpaid product of this skewed society where where the most talentless , uneducated peeps become top billing/rating/superstars…and he happens to be a judge’.. enough said.

  20. Dazbomber says:

    Piers Morgan ? No don’t know him.i know Willie Morgan

  21. King Eric says:

    Morgan admitted in Sunday papers Fergie greatest manager he’s seen. Said they’ve wound each other up over years but now he’s retired he can admit it. Still a tosser though.

  22. Costas says:

    Kings and King Eric are really twins aren’t they? :lol:

  23. Singh7 says:

    Twins???….Naaa ,King Eric’s a G ….King’s just a wannabe..Lolzzz ;-) )

  24. nambuktu says:

    Always enjoyed the banter between him and gnev, rio, owen, RVP and obviously everybody else in twitter!

  25. Sushi says:

    Piers morgan is a despicable cunt you brits can have him back fucking annoying piece of shit never shuts up

  26. Unitedforeva says:

    Larry King’s stand-in has been nutted! You don’t hear Piers Morgan having a go at Patrick Vieira who turned down Arsenal & Arsene to go for the $$project$$ at City. Once Piers does that, he can speak all he wants about ex-Arsenal players.

  27. edhen says:

    I’m yet to see his reaction if any. Let the confused life opportunist to zip it up once and for all, amen. I think there are people on this earth we should less cared about. He’s one of them lol…

  28. Costas says:


    There has to be a connection between the two of some kind. Of all things you can calll Morgan, they both called him a toff cunt. ;)

  29. Kings says:

    Singh7 – Ha. No mate, I’m definitely one of a kind. Been visiting this blog since it’s inception. Took a mini sabbatical and now only making fleeting appearances due to a lot of helmets on here posting crap comments.

    King Eric – Hello my friend, apology not necessary. Great minds and all that!

  30. King Eric says:

    Ha Costas and Singh . No relation to Kings whatsoever , we REALLY are different people who keep in contact regular. Same views on most things.

    Kings – Morning mate. Yes most definitely “great minds”.

  31. Marq says:

    Dail Mail exclusive!

    Arsenal ready to break the bank to try and sign Rooney on a £200,000/week deal.

    Less than what he is earning and less chance of glory

    This is why news media are laughable to say the least

  32. Costas says:


    And I’ll try to hook up with Irina Shayk mate.

  33. Costas says:

    @King Eric

    Hi pal. Of course you are different people (wink wink).

    Nah, just kidding. Like Kings said, great minds..

  34. Singh7 says:

    Hahaha @Kings n King Eric I was just having a laugh …Sabbatical you say .? I know what u mean ,I tend to do that and just have a browse on occasion .I may not have said this but it really seems to have gone down hill a bit recently but Costas and King Eric always seem to talk sense ..

  35. Singh7 says:

    Oh and Giles Oakley too …now that’s a proper G..

  36. gazzer says:

    If I were RVP I wouldn’t have bothered replying to him.
    Sure, he’s on TV and he is famous, but he is a publicity-seeking scumbag.
    He probably loves that people like RVP twitter back to him or whatever

  37. Zulu-Utd-Malta says:

    Piers Morgan is a waste of space, so, why wasting time on this good for nohting cunt ???

  38. Wakey says:


    To be fair to him while his football views are awful he is very good on CNN especially when he has pro gun guests on after things like school shootings as he simply isn’t afraid of holding a mirror up to how screwed up Americas continued acceptance of mass shootings by the continued support the country as a whole has for an almost unchecked right to own and carry firearms.

    Very few others either in US TV or US politics are willing to make a stand as the gun lobby has so much power and money and middle America love their guns so much that they aren’t willing to risk having the fight.

    Also you have to say while he has given RvP a lot of stick he has taken RvPs responce in a good manner. Many others wouldn’t have

  39. ziggy says:

    Piers is a good lad but his taste about football teams is really awful.

  40. CG_MUFC says:

    I wonder if Piers Morgan is still in denial over Van Persie’s move

  41. cleggster says:

    What i like about facebook and twitter is we can all keep calling Piers a knob

  42. Big Vex says:

    lmao.. legend

  43. LoneStarRed says:

    Piers Morgan is what you all a useful idiot. Then again I can’t. imagine what he is useful for, certainly not ratings. So he’s just an idiot. Perhaps all 12 people who watch his show will disagree.

  44. Markowire says:

    Well Done RVP. Great bit of Harmless banter. Leaving Morgan sucking on rotten eggs…..
