Sir Alex on Van Persie Capture

Sir Alex on Van Persie Capture

Having swayed this way and that, it was something of a relief to see the transfer of Robin Van Persie finally go through.

The acquisition of the Dutchman has provided United with a fine attacking platform from which an assault on the Premier League title can be made.

Discussing the signing of the Dutch striker, Sir Alex Ferguson was visibly bubbling and enthused about a comparison with a previous era when he commented,

"It`s great to have a player of Van Persie`s quality to come into the squad as it is. I`m really pleased. Rooney and Van Persie are two fantastic players and it`s tremendous to have them both."

"What it gives us is more strength and combinations up front."

"Going back to the 1999 season, we had Yorke, Cole, Sherringham and Solskjaer, the four best strikers in Europe."

"We`re getting towards that now, with Wayne, Robin, Chicharito and Danny Welbeck."

"It`s a fantastic collection of players. I just hope that I pick the right combinations."


It certainly is and with the acquisition of Shinji Kagawa I`m confident that we can, once again, put City on the back-foot and reclaim our title.

How about you?

I was confident we could reclaim our title pre-RVP but no doubt the signing of him will make us that much more stronger and likely. Shame we don't have a midfield with the quality of the 1999 squad though, though I do believe if we drop Rooney into the CM role that would easily be fixed.
