    He has done incredibly well for Arsenal. I think its more about that than his personality because he seems to be a bit of a primadonna and very argumentative etc which I personally don't enjoy.

    Certainly RVP is the man.

    PFA is voted by other professionals so it doesn't really matter what you guys think here. Let's wait and see what they think.
