    Well done lad.

  3. FletchTHEMAN says:

    So great to have convinced a lad of his quality to come at the top of his game.

    Lovin RvP “The Red Years” ! :twisted:

  4. FletchTHEMAN says:

    Would have loved to have been able to seal the deal for Arjen Robben that was rumored.

    Used to be a complete git when he played for the chavs, but a very mature player the last 3 years and real quality.

    Interesting all the players who didn’t come here because Fergie was getting on. One of my hopes for Moyes is that he settles into a couple of wins and starts to attract the type of player that we have missed out on attracting for the last few years.

    Breaking the record in style!

  6. Marq says:

    So, on our hands we could have Holland, England & Mexico’s all time goal scorers, not too bad a choice huh

  7. bRed says:

    That RvP is still on such a hot streak for Holland says it all about our service from midfield. This is something Moyes has publicly admitted and needs to sort out.

  8. King Eric says:

    Nice one Robin. Can’t just blame service at United, he HAS missed a few chances. Christ he was handed the ball on a silver plate last week at Sunderland.

  9. Hans says:

    Well done RvP.

    I wish he could get service like that at United as well!!

  10. unitedforeva says:

    RVP! Robin’s Very Precious! – Now United got to give him such service against Southampton.

  11. safichan says:

    It shows that RVP can be so deadly in front of goal mouth if the midfield function properly…there is nothing wrong with RVP, he is freaking great striker…what he need is a great midfield line up to support him at united…

  12. tony says:

    your so right .world class “oh robin van persie .shame we do not have more world class players like him.

  13. John says:

    I think we need a world class coach and sack moyes quicker because who wants to play for David Moyes?..what he has in his credit apart from British passport?..Neither he has won anything nor he promotes attractive football..I mean ppl c’mn, would u lick moyes butt if fergie said so??..David moyes won’t get us to top 4 if he is nt sacked til the end of season n we won’t win anything..I can bet on this n m nt going away frm commenting..few dicks here find to swallow the difference in opinion..#moyesout

  14. King Eric says:

    John – Go and hang yourself you plastic cunt.

  15. King Eric says:

    Oh and learn to write correctly please.

  16. Dela says:

    @King Eric –> Yep, true that. Robin had missed a few chances he’d usually put away this season. Against Liverpool he had two enormous opportunities and didn’t finish either, and then against Sunderland as you said, Valencia put it on a plate for him and he didn’t hit the target. That said, the man is just absolute class!! Doomsayers about United seem to forget about him I think, when he sets off we’ll be propelled back up the table.

  17. John says:

    @king Eric…shut ur trap u dick…I can express my opinion n wt plastic u mug??..owners of our club are plastics n u pay them u dick..don’t fuckin show ur attitude just coz u can’t swallow the difference in for the writing, i don’t fuckin thing u keyboard warrior have any creditial to question dat..why don’t u hang urself n fuckin take dat depressing ex coach of Everton u idiot??

  18. DreadedRed says:

    I think the blathering half-wit in the corner is trying to talk. Either that, or there’s a ship sinking and back-pressure is regurgitating a whole lot of turds from the John.

    If it smells like shit, it always is shit.

  19. SpoonyPizzas says:

    Let me clarify what John is trying to say…


  20. John says:

    @Dreaded…ok u seem to have nose like a dog and since fergie said stand by your manager, u idiot can go stand near clueless one and use ur sense of smell..c’mn if fergie tells run naked dreaded ones like do it.. U forget fergie is just a paid employee still earning nt sth like Mendala type great..

  21. John says:

    @spoon..go thru ur user name..HERP DES..moron!!

  22. DreadedRed says:


    Put on a Moyes outfit, complete with mask. Glare into the mirror at his reflection, and angrily shout “Fuck off you cunt!”

    Now, try it without the outfit…

    Now, just do it.

  23. John says:

    @dreaded…how many times u tried that b4??..wt a fucker!!..u love moyes huh u Gay?!

  24. John says:

    @Dreaded..anything against moyes hurts u right?!..u must be one that lifts coconut with ass..ha ha ha..sucker!!

  25. DreadedRed says:

    I’m well used to ABU trying to hurt United. You are but a single insignificant grain of sand amidst a windstorm of Saharan proportions. But when all is done and dusted, it’s United that always stands tall.

  26. John says:

    @Dreaded…look mate at the end of the day we all are united fans and we love our club…bt we all have opinions..u like moyes and i want him sacked..n i won’t feel any need to change my opinion abt it wtever Alex Ferguson says..Its my opinion n that doesn’t make me ABU or u as the true don’t fuckin try n force ur issues here..

  27. DreadedRed says:

    You’re the one with issues. And you’re the one being forceful.

    Having an opinion is not the same as vomiting all over the forum.

  28. MansionOfTheReds says:


    that’s your opinion, fair enough. Doesn’t mean u shud keep insulting moyes everytime and on threads which have absolutely nothing to do with him. people will respect your views if u give valid arguments at the right places
