When you have Robin (Van Persie)..
My prediction is that Man United will be EPL Champions for the 20th time ahead of Man City & Chelsea for season 12/13.
Sir Alex made the most important decision in buying RVP from Arsenal. Another great Dutch striker (Ruud Van Nisterooy was the other).
Robin can convert half chances into goal, and once MU lead, there is no stopping them from collecting 3 points. Rooney can also swap places with Robin whenever necessary.
Another big advantage is if, Robin & Rooney fail score until 70th minute, then MU can bring in Hernandez or/and Wellbeck & defenders will have a difficult time adjusting to the new incoming striker(s). Just like in 1999, MU have Yorke&Cole (1st choice strikers) and can easily switch to Solkjaer/Sheringham (2nd choice); making defenders did not know how to handle the switch.
The only department needing strenghtening is the central defence. But with Vidic, Jones & Smalling coming back from injuries, this will be temporary. Special praise to Jonny Evans, who have been outstanding! Another player worth mentioning is Antonio Valencia, his runs & crosses are phenominal.
Thanks also to Fletcher for his courageous comeback from illness. Special tribute to oldies Scholes & Giggs, who have been fantastic in giving their experience to the young players..
Viva Man United
