RVP: "Finally Winning A Title Is Great"


For Robin Van Persie, his eight, long years at Arsenal were tough. Struck with injuries, unable to reach his potential. Eight, long years with just a FA Cup Trophy, and without a title, many runners up medals. 2012 was his break, when he made the move to Manchester United for £24 million. The move angered Arsenal fans, but Robin knew, as did many United fans, that he had made the right move.

At the start of the season, Van Persie took the number twenty shirt, the number of titles United would win if they were to clinch the trophy off of rivals Manchester City. He knew he could help them get that title, he could be the man to make the difference. At Arsenal he managed the win the FA Cup, but he wasn't a regular player then, and wanted to win the league title more than anything. He thanked Arsenal staff, players and fans for help and support during his time, but he knew the move would give him what he couldn't get at Arsenal - success.

Now, after clinching the Premier League title, while already have a Capital One Cup winners medals, with the possibility of FA Cup and Champions League winner medals too, Robin has looked back on his move, and spoken to BBC News:

"My time at Arsenal was great, sure, but I needed success. Football is all about winning. Not money, not fame, but winning. Getting the goals you need. Eight years without success in the league is tough, and Manchester United are the best team in England to get success at, one of the best in the world. Looking back on my season, I scored some goals I won't forget for a long time, and of course, meeting new team mates and players is great. But the best feeling? The best feeling is finally winning something.

I've needed this at one point in my career, and at 29, a striker doesn't have ages left at a team with the caliber of Manchester United. I thank Wenger, and the arsenal staff, for there support, but this is a feeling I could never have in London, with Arsenal. I am here in Manchester, I came here to win. And win is exactly what I have done. Finally winning is the best feeling in the world. Thank you Sir Alex, and thank you David, for the opportunities.


His words angered many Arsenal fans, but Manchester United fans have praised him for his understanding, and realization, of what sort of club Manchester United is. Arsene Wenger has declined to comment on the views of Robin van Persie, but this has shown Robin van Persie certainly won't be going anywhere in the summer.
His words have angered me!

This part seems a bit cheeky :P
Seni: Typical Arsenal fans... *sighs*

Glenn T: That's because it is a bit cheeky. :P

Beckham: "Vidic Should Have Won The Award"


Following the Barclays Premier League Awards announcement, David Beckham, currently playing for Paris Saint-Germian, has hit back at the decisions made for who wins the awards. The main award, that caused controversy between many, was the English Footballer of the Year award. The award went to Carlos Tevez, although he only played around half of the games throughout the season, while other plays received higher average ratings.

When Sky Sports released the season stats, using the same information used for the awards, they found there were many players who received higher average ratings, while also playing more games then the Argentine. In fact, Tevez only received the 14th highest ratings. Nemanja Vidic, who won the Players' Player award received the highest average rating with 7.77, followed by United's Rio Ferdinand. Michael Carrick also finished with a higher rating than Carlos Tevez.

Many players and pundits have failed to see how Tevez won the award, with other players scoring more goals, getting more assists. Throughout the season, Tevez only received 5 man of the match awards, in comparison to Brede Hangeland's 11 or Nemanja Vidic's 7. Carlos Tevez also lost his position at the start of the season to both Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko, and after disputes with his manager, ending up filling the role of an injured central-midfielder, baffling people by winning the award.

David Beckham, a former United player, spoke about the issue, "I feel players have been unfairly awarded awards. Without mentioning players who didn't deserve the award, I feel Nemanja Vidic deserved the award much more. Helping his team concede the least goals throughout the league, while receiving the highest rating, and scoring more than a lot of other strikers. Nemanja Vidic is the clear winner in my opinion."

David also felt the Golden Glove didn't have a correct winner, "The Golden Glove shouldn't have been awarded to a certain Liverpool goalkeeper. He won, simply because he played every game. Playing 5 extra game than David De Gea, and only keeping 2 extra clean sheet doesn't make him the best. David De Gea conceded much less than his fellow Spaniard, and many felt that David was the rightful winner."

The FA are yet to comment on the situation, and dignify the reason Carlos Tevez won the English Player of the Year award, after many other players have also criticized the decision.
Another fantastic update Kane! Your story is truly brilliant :P

Doesn't really work saying that 'he helped his team concede the last goals', does it? :P
