The non-thinking man's Joey Barton. Van Persie's million followers are down to his position as the Premier League's most prolific forward, not for his tweeted eloquence. Most of his activity involves comments on games, notably those of his own team – he tweeted an apology after Arsenal's 4-0 hammering in Milan last week. But there's also backroom "banter" with teammates like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as well as US-based Arsenal fan Piers Morgan. Non-Gooners probably need not apply.
