Arsenal fans to 'pull a Poznan' on Man Utd and Van Persie

Arsenal fans may stage a protest against champions Manchester United at Emirates stadium this weekend.

The Sun says supporters are ready to do a 'Poznan' and they have also warned former skipper Robin van Persie could get an 'horrendous' reception.

Fans' forums were last night urging a boycott of the tribute by taking a leaf out of Manchester City's book.

Many are annoyed by boss Arsene Wenger's recent admission he knew United would win the title when he sold them the Dutch striker last summer.

Pete Wood, from Arsenal blog The Grove, warned: "Van Persie is going to get an horrendous reception.

"Every touch is going to be booed because no one can forgive him for the way he left.

"The club stood by him during his first seven years when he was always injured. Then he has one good season and suddenly he wants to leave.

"It was the way Van Persie manipulated the move and his lack of loyalty which has upset Arsenal supporters."
