RVP - Muddy Waters!

There are conflicting stories relating to the future of Robin Van Persie in the press this morning.

Yesterday the buzz was that the Dutch striker was nailed on to sign for United but today opinions seem to be split.

Whilst the Daily Mirror remains insistent that a deal will be brokered before the commencement of the new season, with United paying Arsenal £22 million for the Premier League`s leading goal-scorer last season, the Sun paints a very different picture.

The Sun boldly states that no club has met Arsenal`s asking price and that Van Persie will remain at the Emirates Stadium.

Furthermore, reports yesterday that inferred Van Persie was booed at the weekend by Arsenal fans now appear to be false with it now being inferred that they were in fact applauding him.

If a deal is to be done for the player, in time for the big kick-off, then things had better start moving pretty soon.

I can't see why Fergie would want to spend 20 mil on a player with a year left on his contract, especially one with a history of injuries. If RVP really wants to leave Arsenal specifically for us and us alone then rather than blowing a fortune on him play the waiting game and snatch him up for nothing, like they did to the Spuds with Campbell. At his age we won't be signing him of the future so what's another year? We leave him for a season, see if he is truly past his fitness problems and can't maintain his high performances (or thereabouts) and snatch him for nothing next season. Truly believe we should wait and not rush into it, especially seeing as there's different departments that need strengthening first.

This year I've decided to opt for players who I'm fairly certain will start and so struggled with the sides with more depth. Ended up with Agüero, Ba and Petric to choose from for my front three for the first game week on I was cautious about which United players to have due to us playing our bogey team for the first game so i opted for ferdinand instead of a forward or midfielder but it looks like that might change.

Redboy must be at the pub, as this appears to be the only united site in the world not carrying news of the RVP transfer!

Carrick can be an unsung hero or burden depending on which Carrick turns up on the day. After Barca-2009 he went off the rails for 2 years and we pretty much played with 10 men as he was completely non-existent offensively and defensively and when he did get the ball all he did was pass backwards. However last season we saw Carrick back to his best, he offered great cover defensively, not the best tackler but reads the game well and can make vital interceptions, as well being a pivot in the deep lying playmaker role, spraying balls across the pitch and ensuring we maintain possession. Not quite to the standard or loving regularity of Scholes, Pirlo, Xavi or Xabi Alonso but good enough considering the opposition we play against a majority of the time. He can control the midfield and speed of play against sides that don't possess more talented midfields.

Glad you got him, so when we win the title again this season what excuses will you have?

Don't think we used the strike force as an excuse it was midfield and defense where our troubles lay and still do
