Yesterday we complimented Sir Alex Ferguson on the very astute signing of Robin van Persie last summer.
The Dutchman`s scoring exploits have assisted us, no end, in our quest to regain the Premier League title we were robbed of last season as well as trying to secure silverware on other fronts.
Van Persie has, in his last 10 games scored 10 goals but despite this remarkable scoring rate, the Dutchman remains a little self critical remarking in the media this morning,
"It should have been 10 games, 14 or 15 goals. At least four or five I shouldn`t have missed."
"It`s not going really well. It is going well but if you start to believe it`s going well, you`re going down."
"If I look at all those games, I should have done better in most of them because I had more chances than just one chance and one goal."
Is it this self critical streak that sets Van Persie aside from all the other strikers, or is it the will to succeed that has Robin reflecting on what might have been?
Either way, United supporters are looking forward to seeing just how many goals Van Persie will score this season as we chase silverware on several fronts.
Continuing on the theme of silverware, we come around to Arsenal, a side that hasn`t won any for eight years, and why, last summer, Van Persie chose to leave North London for a new start.
Speaking about the move, Van Persie explained to the media,
"Arsenal are a great club but after eight years sometimes you feel that you need a new challenge."
"If you look at the last couple of months it explains it all. I`m seeing things again that I didn`t see for a long time."
"For the moment we`re in a great position. We are ahead on points, goal difference is in our favour. All these guys here know how to win and become champions."
"When I first came to Arsenal years ago, I saw things from Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry I`d never seen before."
"Now I`m seeing these things again and that makes me really happy. It`s like a kid in a sweet shop."
A kid in a sweet shop who has and is hoping to continue too fill his boots!
