RvP: Moyes will turn things around

There have been several concerns about Robin van Persie’s future at the club this season after reports he is not happy with David Moyes’ training regime. The player picked up what Moyes referred to as a “freak injury” when taking a corner and has played in less than half of our games this season.

However, speaking to The Guardian, Van Persie has claimed he is fully behind the manager and believes that he needs time to adjust before he can turn things around.

“He needs time like everyone, especially if you’re new at such a big club,” said Van Persie. “I don’t think that people understand that they have to give him a little bit more time. He will get that time, everyone is confident that he will change things sooner rather than later. We got a good win at the weekend, which is good, but in our view, normal. We’ve lost many points this year, too many, because if you want to win trophies you have to play better and get more wins in, but we’re doing everything we can to change that. The manager, he’s our leading man, and he’s trying his best and I think he will turn things around.”

    Nice to hear from Robin, but let’s face it, Moyes needs to sign some players of similar quality to give us a chance of winning something any time soon. Have we actually made an offer for anyone at all in this window? our fucking scouts are clueless, our chief exec spineless and our owners tight as arseholes.
    Perhaps we need to sell Rooney to make some money? The longer this goes on the worse it’s going to get.

    Mark Everson we get it mate we all know Utd need to make signing but you don’t have to repeat pretty well the same comment on every thread.

    @mark you do realise u are saying the same thing over and over.
    We need players more than Chelsea but yet Chelsea has bought and we are still waiting

  4. Tommy says:

    Hopefully this will stop the rumours that hes unhappy with Moyes training methods, I highly doubt, @John, @NBI or @Matty will understand their is no problems with RVP and Moyes tho

  5. OJM says:


    – Of course there are problems with RVP and Moyes. The press said so, so it must be true!



  6. wayne barker says: writes a pile of shit with no direct quotes ‘unknown’ sources close to RVP and the Moyes haters jump all over it.It really goes to the heart of just what kind of Utd fans these people are NBI/John and the other multiple user names have had negative agendas for months

    Man we miss this guy leading the line. If we play like we did last game first half well get a proper spanking at the bridge, turning this around second will be too late. We have to be as good and tight defensively as it gets and hope for something from a set piece.

    If we don’t bring in reinforcements as Scott said in his article, Europa league awaits us.

    Lol, point taken – but it’s something that’s bugging the living shit out of me! Sorry to bore you all with it but it makes me feel a bit better and get it off my chest! also it’s in the vain hope that someone from Old Trafford might scour these blogs looking for ideas off us poor folk, because let’s face it, they’re not on the ball at all. It hurts seeing teams above us snapping up world class talent while we do nothing.
    Manchester United SHOULD be buying the best players ALL the time – l just hope we learn soon.
    And that is my last whinge on the subject!
    It would be interesting to know where we would be in the table if Robin and Wayne had played every/most game(s) though.

  9. The One says:

    These people who jump in on the RVP-Moyes rift thing are simply anti-Moyes, just waiting to find any excuse they can get to bash him.
