Van Persie In 'Tagging' Shocker

We all know that Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie has a dark side, but imagine my amazment when I walked out of Finchely tube station in North London to see that Rockin' Rob had 'tagged' the area as his own.

'Tagging' has become a way for gangs to mark up their territory using names or nicknames and marking them on walls, usually with spray paints.

But having some class, our Rob didn't use spray paint, he used a proper sign.

N.B. Van Persie didn't 'tag' Finchley, it's an official sign.

Thats cool
Finchely - where?
Just on in the enterance to the station Merlin. As you're in the doorway it's on your right.
And that is the full sign, I haven't just taken a picture of part of it.
I think Paul Robinson has been tagging shops on high streets.....every place I go I see the name burger king.
Robinson is fat and over-rated how he is scum's (englands) no.1 i will never know.
