    Just announced on MUTV. Player still has to agree terms.

    I don't think this is what the team needs. Don't understand the logic of it.

    BUT it's obvious the team and the fans need a lift, and maybe that's enough.

    Holy crap. I honestly did not think that would actually go through.

    Now time for RVP to pull a "Hleb" and have a staggering drop in quality.

    With Modric, Martinez, and Sahin all seemingly available it was only logical that we would go for another striker...

    Goals wins game, against an extremely threatening team you rare less likely to take more chances, but an unneccassary signing.

    This is silly.

    Sahin was a loan and will eventually be a sale to a smaller team that wont compete with Madrid. Modric was never going to be sold to a competitor, especially United. At least think a little before you post this rubbish.

    Kagawa shafted out wide while Rooney gets to sit in the hole.......NO!

    Plus, this is forgetting the obvious. Fergie is a 4-4-2 guy. 4-4-2!

    Honestly, Can't believe this actually happened, the perennial need for a CM every off-season and never actually getting done is approaching mythological territory.

    ------------RVP--------------
    Rooney---Swag---------Nani(all three free roaming)
    ------Carrick----______--------------
    Back 5


    Welback as impact sub, play 4-4-2 against weaker teams with him starting as well.

    RVP is 29 though...2/3 top years left...so I wonder how much the purchase was for.

    Good news.

    Can't say i was too excited by this transfer, but it has been growing on me as time passes.

    United didn't need Moura. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

    Yeah yeah, a load of Arsenal fans coming here to say that Van Persie is overrated ( a view I may share) was to be expected.
    Football fans are a predictable lot.

    Atleast paying for a young creative player adds up more than paying for RVP

    We have too many strikers. Now Rooney and RVP will expect to play 90% of games or they'll throw a hissy....meaning less time to develop Welbeck (and to a lesser extent Chich). Meanwhile we have a drop of quality and depth in CM......don't get it.

    Is there a point to this post on the United board? Insecure much.



    Charley, it is pretty clear that to some extent, it is a signing to shut up the whining section of our support.

    Neither Modric nor Sahin is available.

    I like Martinez but there are valid questions to be asked about his mobility.

    When did such a large section of our support lose their ability to think?
