Manchester United's attempt to wrestle back the Barclays Premier League title suffered the worst possible start after they were beaten by a Marouane Fellaini-inspired Everton.
O dear!!! RVP and Rooney can not work together??? Hope he doesn't mean that.
I think he meant no one passed to him or at least not as much as they could have.
... at which point it was already pretty much sealed shut in the Everton box, and Man Utd were just banging away at the gates... It's too early yet to judge Van Persie or the rest of the team assisting him, just on the basis of this match and those 20 minutes he played. And this is coming from someone who feels VP is a little bit overrated and thinks he could only perform a feat like the last 18 months because everyone at Arsenal was playing in service of him and him alone.
Rooney suck'd HARD, Countless mistake and loss of ball possession, why isn't anyone talking about his performance?
I don't think Rooney will like always playing for RVP, Their egos might cause problems. Manchesters united's best Formations for RVP will probably be a 4-5-1 With RVP up front and Rooney in the back somewhere in midfield. or 4-3-3 with RVP upfront (get the best out of him) and No Rooney unless he wants to play in the middle or on the wing. I just can't see a 4-4-2 working that well, but who knows, maybe they can get Alone.
Van Persie is a great player, don't underestimate him...as the season progresses you will all see who the "Top" Players and clubs are.
no-ones under estimating van persie. their questioning man u ability to get the best out of him. a technically cultured player is going to struggle to perform to his best in a team the statically crosses the ball as much as chelsea. he was unfit for the everton clash but he looked like alice in wonderland in those 20 min. this is the same problem they had with berbatov.
Van Persie will love the crosses. Get Valencia back on one side and Young on the other and he'll eat up those low crosses especially. Van Persie is the left footer, Rooney is right. Perfect. He said he wanted to score more headers last season he certainly will score them this year, guaranteed....
if Nani could have only crossed past the first man or not skied them into the opposite stands..
he's played 20 minutes!! and he signed last wk!! u guys need to get a grip.. ridiculous.
Kagawa is amazing. He set up Welbeck and Cleverly perfectly but they did not capitalize. I'll never understand the RVP signing, though. Hell, in my opinion, they should probably sell instead because Rooney is on the verge of becoming fat and out of shape, get your moneys worth now. Chich and Welbeck are the future front line.
Kagwa is great especially considering to was his first game...
For 2 years now I've been saying he is the closest thing to Zidane, and I'm surprised only really United went after him hard. His touch is so soft and he makes the perfect pass, sometimes too good. He can score too.
Wowo wow wow zidane? He's good but let's not get carried away...
Closest thing to zidane, no one will be zidane
