Being touted around

Last year the man was on fire but that was his ONLY year of true success after 7 years of average play

He has shown in the Dutch team that he is not "all that" when it comes to being World Class and I think at his age with his record of not staying fit he could and probably will ( look at the stats ) be a bust wherever he goes.

I thought Man utd fans rated Berbaflop 30+million and the mexican midget as top class yet now they want this fragile dutchman Crazy

I don't think his quality is in question.  Although he's had lots of injuries I think this "he's only had one good season" line sounds more like bitter Arsenal fans and/or ABUs.

However, it's certainly a big fee for a player at his age with his record.  If they get 3 full years from him he'll be a great buy but it could easily backfire.  That said, very few big transfers come without risk and Man Utd have needed a couple of top class signings for a while.  They're still at least one top class central midfielder short imo.

Great, great player.

Lot of money though when you factor in his wages (a 4 year deal of 180k p/w plus 22m signing fee = nearly £60m) and the fact they'll be getting very little back at the end of that deal.

Over rated bully boy   His temper cost arsenal on many occasions   At the centre of the Dutch rows as usual spends half of the season out with fake injuries or stupid bookings and sending offs
Apparently only half the arsenal team and less of the Dutch team wouldn't p iss on him if he was on fire

UTD are schit

This has been an incredible season as far as come backs etc and i salute their resilience ( dou to Fergie ) but this team is so feckin ordinary it ain't even funny and I don't see them "changing gears"

I think Man City will kick on now and win it comfortably and am certain Chelsea will catch and pass Utd

Very Very ordinary for a UTD team ( The plastics will lambast this theory ) and will be found out badly from here on and Real Madrid will put at least 4 past them in Spain

Evans & Wio are a bit of a liability now and Scholes and Giggs are a circus act ( couple of clowns ) and good for fukkkall nowadays

Where would this average (compared to previous seasons) United side be without his goals?

City would be 3 points closer from the Manchester derby for a start.

Then off the top of my head he single handedly won them the game at Southampton, and scored winners against Liverpool, West ham and Reading. No doubt there's a few others too

Looking like a bargain really.

Cookie muncher you miss the point a little...you can remove RVP and insert Rooney in previous seasons and before that Ronaldo...

Someone always steps up... I saw a stat that utd would be 4th without RVP's goals... don't really follow that one as someone else would have stepped up to take the mantal...obviously not to the same degree as this chap but 4th do me a favour.

Rooney's missed a fair bit of this season though, didn't score his first goal until 20 October and has actually only scored in four league games. So perhaps the RVP stat isn't that far fetched.

This does not mean a lot... he would have been playing a bit further forward without van persie..possibly as the sole front man with Kagawa in behind.

And if he'd been out injured who is to say Chicharito would not have stepped up to fill the void.

Geniunely don't believe (and i'm sure you don't either) that he'd have made the same impact as RVP. For a start he never seems to have as much of an effect when he starts games. Seems to be Solksjaer mark II, always scoring off the bench.

What's his goal record like for games started/games on as sub over his United career?
Report R0ykeane January 7, 2013 11:21 AM GMT
Not to the same level but I think he'd have stepped in and filled the void with Welbeck until Rooney was back. My point is someone usually steps up...it is the mark of Ferguson teams...how else do you explain every year you're reading the same pish...'utd are so average but for XXXXX'

DeSSie,

United have been sh1t for years. It is all coming to an end and has been for at least ten years now. SAF should not have changed his mind about retirement, ok he has won another Champions League and a few more Premierships and Cups since then but with a sh1t team and only because he bullies referees.

Jammiest club ever. How the hell they have the following record in the league in the last twenty years is bewildering;

Winners 12 times
Runners up seven times
3rd once

RVP is holding them together, just like Rooney did before him. They were lucky Ronaldo was there before that and Keane just before him. Got really jammy signing Van Nistlerooy and who would have thought SAF bringing through those spotty kids Beckham, Neville, Scholes, Giggs, Butt would win them a f ucking treble. That idiot Wilkinson stupidly sold them Cantona and he started the whole ball rolling for them but he wasn't that great either, just some hit and hopes that kept going in.

Manchester United ruined my life too. Off for my hourly medication now.

It is still not set on stone that he will be a success as this thred was based around his injury record and as far as I can see 20+ mill for 5 months is not value for money YET Mischief

He has been the best striker in the Prem for many a year thus far but for me he has to do it for a few seasons to make him worth that much money so lets see if he can keep scoring and stay injury free

But don't let any of these facts get in the way of a good ssssseeeeth or troll Silly
